A land developer has pledged that any development on the lot at 401-405 LeJeune Road will not encroach upon the M-Path!
The section of the Path that has been protected.
At the May 27 meeting of BPAC, the developer rolled out proposals to build a bank with a drive-through on the lot, which would have placed the flow of traffic directly onto the M-Path. GMN was there to represent the thousands of bicyclists and pedestrians to demonstrate their opposition, with BPAC members making it clear that safety is a priority and that any encroachment upon the M-Path was unacceptable. Representatives of Green Mobility Network, Friends of the Greenlink, Bike/Walk Coral Gables, Run Club Network, and Bike SoMi voiced their opposition and reiterated that the community will fight any further intrusion upon the M-Path.
The battle is not over yet, though! The developer will be re-appearing before BPAC in a month’s time. Although he has pledged to not encroach upon the M-Path, we have to stay vigilant and ensure that our safety is protected.
