Palmetto Bay Business Association update - Trust for Public Lands

A great meeting of the Palmetto Bay Business Association.  The featured speaker was Brenda McClymonds, Senior Program Director of the Trust for Public Lands (TPL). 
TPL has worked hard for Palmetto Bay - CLICK HERE to view the exciting TPL press release from 9/19/05, regarding the results of the September 15, the FCT governing board fully funded Thalatta Estate, our gem on the Bay which may not have occurred but for TPL getting involved:
•Bayfront/Haas Property, Village of Palmetto Bay, Miami-Dade County. Located on Biscayne Bay, this 3.6 acres will be protected as a public park. In addition, a house on the property that was built in 1926 will be preserved and eventually opened to the public. The FCT board approved $2.71 million to the Village of Palmetto. TPL purchased the property, in conjunction with the Village, in December 2004.  

Thank you to all the donors, volunteers, board members and staff of the TPL!
