SOMETHING’S NOT RIGHT HERE
AFTER ALMOST A YEAR OF NEGLECT, THERE IS SOMETHING FISHY ABOUT WHY THE ENTRANCE TO THIS PARK HASN’T BEEN REPAIRED
PART IV

OLD SITEORIGINAL_SITE.html

On July 17th of last year, after receiving complaints from a couple folks who live close to this park, I wrote my first story about the Northeast entrance to Simpson Park being closed because the wood planking had rotted.

Nothing happened.

On November 25th, I did an update, pointing out again that nothing had happened and the entrance remained closed.

On December 12th, I addressed the Miami City Commission, pointing out that I had written about this problem and had been contacted by folks who lived close to the park who were unhappy about the entrance being closed.

On February 21st of this year I did another story. Again, nothing happened except the condition of the wood at the entrance keeps deteriorating.

Here it is June 2nd, and last week I stopped and took some more photos of the wood deck at the entrance. They are below.

As I wrote in my February story, this park is in Commissioner Marc Sarnoff’s District, and I included a video portion of the December Commission meeting in that story where Sarnoff had expressed his desire to be kept informed about the progress of repairing this entrance.

The fact that this entrance has been allowed to remain in the condition its in for at least a year - folks had started complaining to me before my first story - raises a serious question of why a City Commissioner who brags about being the “Parks Commissioner,” and whose out trying to drum up support for the improbable attempt to run his wife as his replacement for the District 2 Commission seat would continue to allow this eye sore to exist in his District

This is after all the same Commissioner who spent over $500,000 redesigning the dog park directly across the street from his home in Coconut Grove 3 times since he’s been in office.

Something’s fishy here, and there has to be another reason why the city refuses to repair this entrance.  Your thoughts on this are welcome.
