Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Upcoming HB City Commission meeting re Flex units in Diplomat LAC; imagining The Masters golf tourney with giant condo towers like Diplomat's LAC plan

The ad above about the April 21st Hallandale
City Commission meeting ran in Sunday's
Miami Herald

If you haven't already heard, the
County Commission
meeting that was
scheduled to re-hear
the Diplomat LAC's
incompatible proposal on
April 27th,
has now been moved to Tuesday May 11th.

One month from tomorrow.

By the way, do you think The Masters Golf
Tournament the past week would've looked
better or worse on TV for home viewers IF
there'd been constant shots of giant 25-30 story
condo towers looming over the magnolia trees?

Say, something like this rendering, perhaps?

You'd probably have thought that the condo towers
seemed pretty incompatible with what the folks
at Augusta National seemed at pains to keep
emphasizing: nature and green, green everywhere.

Yeah, that's what I'd think, too!

Here's a question I wish I'd thought of asking the
Diplomat's attorney, Debbie Orshefsky of
Greenberg Traurig, on November 2nd at their
required informational meeting held at the HB
Cultural Center:

Are there ANY golf courses in the entire state
Florida where the respective county approved
buildings this TALL
to be located THAT close
to an existing residential neighborhood and
golf course, as part of a LAC?

My own guess is that if there were such instances,
being the very good lawyer that she is, Debbie
would've mentioned it a few dozen times by now;
she hasn't.

I don't think that's a coincidence.

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 2016
