As a resident of Miami-Dade county, we need your help to hold the line against industrial development that threatens fragile ecosystems and jeopardizes local water quality.
The Aligned Holdings application in District 8 has been reduced from an 800-acre footprint to 350 acres. But that does not diminish our concerns about the proposal which lies in a flood-prone, coastal high-hazard zone that is currently being farmed. This area is important for aquifer recharge and serves as an important line of protection from storm surge and other impacts of climate change.
The proposed project is a risk to ongoing efforts to restore water quality in Biscayne Bay by developing on land that is currently being evaluated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and South Florida Water Management District for inclusion in the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan.
