Interesting read posted online from Miami Today. Headline: Palmetto Bay hospital zoning battle in court, by Gabriel Poblete, posted on January 7, 2020.
A zoning battle between the Village of Palmetto Bay and a developer intent on building a 200-bed hospital has devolved to several lawsuits, with a hearing scheduled for the end of the month.

Luxcom Builders acquired a property on the northeast corner of Southwest 152nd Street and 67th Avenue from Florida Power & Light for $33 million and then proposed a hospital on a 71-acre campus. But Luxcom’s plan to build a hospital remains up in the air.
Yacht Club by Luxcom LLC is challenging an amendment to the village’s future land use map that changed the land use designation of its property. The case is to be heard by the state’s Division of Administrative Hearings from Jan. 29 to 31 in the village.
The lawsuit claims that while under contract to purchase the property from FPL, Yacht Club sent a letter Nov. 15, 2018, to the village’s interim planning and zoning director at the time, Mark Alvarez, to get confirmation of the property’s usages. Mr. Alvarez responded, saying that the development (exclusive of the western 10-acre portion) could indeed be used for, among other things, a hospital or a non-profit medical facility.

  1. How can a hospital even be considered in an EVACUATION/FLOOD ZONE, with only 67 ave & 152 street access? Especially when there are already enough hospitals to serve our area?

  2. Thanks for sharing this great post. It was very informative with the information that you provided. Have a wonderful day and keep up these great posts.
