COMMENT

Miami Springs would be better if it had less apartments, not more.

Traffic

Not only is speeding higher (and I agree, a lot is from locals), but take note at how common people just roll through stop signs. The basic skill of coming to a complete stop no longer exists.

With one of the highest tax rates in the county this city should have one of the highest paid police departments in the county. Not

Police

If you have a bad experience, it-s easy to say all the cops are bad. I can only speak from my experience. The police interactions I have had have always been professional, courteous, and caring. By in large, the officers care and give a darn about our neighborhood. However, as stated below, the department is understaffed and undersupported by the city council. We need more police to handle the increased demand, increased traffic, and increased number of occupants along 36 street. All those hotels have added a LOT more people. Those people need police services as well and our city has not responded to the HUGE increase in occupants within the city. Traffic is up. Speeding is up. Occupants are up and our city wants to keep the same number of cops. Don-t be stupid. Hire more cops. The hotels need to pay more ASAP.

Poor lady that had her large specimen orchid stolen in her front yard. Im sure it will be a waste of time to file a police report since this department is to lazy to investigate any crime. They make no time catching criminals. The MSPD is a disgrace.

Tiresome

Yes itís tiresome to see the car accidents and fatal deaths. Yes. Itís tiresome to see people who canít drive properly. Yes. That is tiresome. Itís tiresome to see speeding every day. And you canít take just a little real life critique.

Chief

Your comments are so tiresome. Unless youíre living under a rock, the Police Department had been understaffed for more than a year. The next budget adds another position. Quit complaining and encourage qualified people to apply. Get off your arses and help.

Virginia Gardens

Virginia Gardens does a better job patrolling their half of 36 street than Springs does with far less cops. I always see VG cops on 36 street. I rarely see Springs cops. Oh and VG has speed bumps on Ludlam. What does Springs have? Excuses.

HIRE MORE

We have more hotels, more residents, more people than ever before. Hire more police. I-m not complaining about our cops. I love our cops. I know some are complaining about the chief. I-m not. But I agree that we need to hire more cops and I agree we should stop wasting money on stupid projects live moving the tot lot. That was a stupid expenditure.

Trafic

Show me one city in Dade or Broward County that has solved the trafic and speeding problem? Chie is doing the best he can but et real this is a countywide problem and no city has solved the problem. By the way most speeders are residents

Spending

Maybe the city should stop wasting money re-arranging the tot lot and hire some more police officers.

Chief

I see the Chief Haters are out in force early today.     By the timing of these posts it appears as if these folk(s) are not gainfully employed and lack direction in their lives.     I guess that once you feed the ducks, the iguanas and the feral cats there is nothing else to do but to get on the computer and complain.    BTW, are you willing to have your taxes increase to some ridiculous % in order to hire more officers?     They are only free in your feeble mind!

Get results, not excuses. We are rooting for you to be successful, but the traffic is a serious problem and it-s not getting any better. The only one who can make it better is you.

Since he started the police department has been on a rapid decline. He is not a problem solver, but a problem maker. All talk and no action. Q&A is a waste of time. Our problems gets solved the day he is OUT !

ugghhh - chief, we know traffic is up in Springs. Please fight for more traffic enforcement. speeding is out of control. There-s a lack of respect on the road. Please get the message that what you-re doing is not enough. We need more. If that means hire more, please hire more. We need more enforcement in our little town. Please please please.

The bald   Officer with the jerk face has been a police officer for 37 years protecting non-appreciative idiots like you. Heís allowed to have a ďbreakĒ and often times misses meals if there are too many calls, as with all officers. He also happens to be a beloved son, cherished husband with three children and five grandchildren. Next time you see his jerk face, ask to meet his K9 partner. Oh, and do put your name to this so if you ever need his help, he can thank you for your kind words. What do you do for your community?

The facts are clear. The height violates the city code, the FAR violates the city codes, the parking violates the codes and the number of apartments violates the codes. Just a little bit of common sense would have stopped this project immediately.

Development

All decisions on this project are tempered by maximum gain and profit and not with the best interest of Miami Springs.      The people who should be looking out to maintain the original intent of Glenn Curtis is the council and for the most part they lack the depth and integrity to speak out against these developers.    These developers don-t live in Miami Springs, they are not going to raise their kids in Miami Springs and they certainly don-t give a hoot about us, only about maximizing the return in their investment.      Don-t be fooled by people in city government who live here; if they make enough money they will move to Coral Gables while laughing at us; right Danny?
Report Abuse (beta)





Development

The apartments are the problem. The size would be okay if it was all entertainment and retail. I understand why we have this disaster. The architect of this plan, the CA, has no vision for a downtown retail entertainment complex. His idea is another "me too" apartment complex like they have on Hialeah Drive. I despise the morons who say, "well, it-s better than the ugly abandoned theater" as if the only choice we had was an apartment complex. It could have been something incredible, amazing, and inspiring. Instead, we-re getting a bunch of apartments that do nothing positive for existing homeowners (aside from traffic and density) and handicapped retail which won-t have enough parking. But we have to understand this is how a once upscale little town created by one of the richest men in American History descends into a low income community.

Beautiful Miami Springs is a quiet residential community located in the heart of Miami-Dade County, Florida. Literally, just minutes away from anything in Miami, it's a slow paced oasis within the larger hustle and bustle of greater Miami.

Miami Springs was founded in 1926 by Glenn Curtiss, also known as the "Father of Naval Aviation." Miami Springs is a middle to upper middle class neighborhood with a mix of blue collar and white collar workers. At the core of Miami Springs is a championship style 18 hole golf course that has hosted hundreds of tournaments and celebrities alike.

Miami Springs has a mix of homes ranging from modest to luxury. Most of the larger, luxury style homes can be found along the beautiful golf course.

Miami Springs has a row of hotels along NW 36 Street, adjacent to Miami International Airport. The proximity to the airport and the 10 - 15 minute distance to the Port of Miami Cruise Ships and South Beach makes Miami Springs a popular hotel destination for tourists from all across the globe.

MiamiSprings.com was created in 1997 by local businessman and Miami Springs resident, Nestor Suarez. Nestor loved the city he grew up in and created the first website dedicated to the Miami Springs and Virginia Gardens area. To this day, Mr. Suarez still operates the website providing local news, events, updates, and photos. The website also has a popular (and sometimes controversial) political forum where anyone can discuss current local issues, politics, ideas. Forum posts and Individual comments posted on MiamiSprings.com do not necessarily represent the opinion of MiamiSprings.com, its owner, or its advertisers. MiamiSprings.com encourages you to post your opinions and interact with the MiamiSprings.com online community.
