The Miami City Commission will vote this Thursday on the approval of a $165 million plan for Coconut Grove, which would redevelop the stretch of Biscayne Bay between Kennedy Park and Peacock Park. One complaint from community members is that the plan calls for the privatization of the neighborhood’s only public boat ramp. While the source of the project’s total budget remains unclear, City Commission Marc Sarnoff has said that he would like the state to contribute about $20 million.
