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.

University of Miami Community Design and Development Studio in Hollywood, June 2-6, 2010

Hollywood, FL-More than 20 graduate students and 5 professors from the University of Miami's School of Architecture are in Hollywood this week to team with the Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency (HCRA) to host a Community Design and Development (CDD) Studio. The CDD Studio assists communities with visioning, planning, design and development challenges through the combined resources of faculty and graduate students in real estate, urban design and architecture.

"With the market bouncing back, there's no better time to bring this type of expertise and energy to Hollywood as we prepare for reinvestment and positive redevelopment," says HCRA Executive Director Charlotte Burnett.

The students are part of UM's Masters program in Real Estate Development and Urbanism. Through research and meetings with residents, business interests and property owners, the CDD Studio in Hollywood will review existing code issues including current design guidelines for the HCRA and recommendations for updates, as well as a market analyses of the downtown and beach districts creating recommendations for retail-dining; residential; office; resort-hotel; arts, entertainment and culture; and medical & education.

Hollywood residents can get involved in the work being done in Hollywood by attending the public sessions or by stopping by UM's Hollywood Studio at the Garfield Street Community Center, 300 Connecticut Street (adjacent to the Garfield Street Parking Garage on Hollywood Beach) during the open sessions on Saturday, June 5th or Sunday, June 6th.

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy
Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and 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 now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio looks like, up close, plus the Amazon area of Brazil that Esther grew up near in Manaus, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������

A floresta Amazônica tem um papel fundamental no equilíbrio do clima na Terra e, portanto, na vida de cada um de nós. Nos últimos anos a proteção diminuiu e o desmatamento aumentou drasticamente. E o que já era ruim, pode ficar ainda pior. Se as medidas que o governo vem tomando não forem vetadas, nosso futuro estará ameaçado. Diga NÃO à diminuição da proteção da Floresta do Jamanxim! Diga NÃO à exploração de minério no coração da floresta! #TodosPelaAmazônia #342Amazonia #TodosPelaAmazonia Assine a petição: link na bio. ������✨���� The Amazon Rainforest plays a key role in balancing the climate on the Earth and therefore in each of our lives. In recent years, protection has decreased and deforestation has increased sharply. And what was already bad can get even worse. If the measures that the government has been taking are not vetoed, our future will be threatened. Say NO to the reduction of the Jamanxim Forest´s protection! Say NO to ore mining in the heart of the Forest! #togetherfortheAmazon
