SAVE THE DATE for the City of Miami Commission’s April 25, 2019 meeting on the Coconut Grove Playhouse revival project!
On March 11, Miami-Dade County filed an appeal to the unfair and unfortunate action of the City of Miami’s Historic and Environmental Preservation Board which denied the County’s application to move forward with plans to revitalize the Coconut Grove Playhouse. The appeal is scheduled to be considered by the City of Miami Commission on April 25, sometime after 2 pm at City Hall, 3500 Pan American Drive.
This is a deciding moment for the future of the Playhouse and the revitalization of downtown Coconut Grove. If the City Commission approves the County’s appeal, the County is ready to submit the Playhouse project’s architectural plans for a building permit. After years of work and exhaustive research, renovation and construction are ready to begin. Thoughtful historic preservation, a village-friendly design, and great theater can return to this important site.
You can see the full appeal here. In addition, The Miami Herald’s latest coverage of the Playhouse can be viewed here.
