Mayor Manny Diaz’ goal to remake Virginia Key has been put on hold after city commissioners bowed to environmental activists who said there aren’t enough safeguards for the habitat. Parts of the revitalization will go forward, however, including a mountain bike course and a cleanup of a former dumping site. Diaz leaves office in one month. [Miami Herald]
