Commissioner Samuelian shared the most significant news coming out of yesterday’s session may be regarding the delayed Palm-Hibiscus project, and an explanation of the hold-up by Miami-Dade’s Department of Environmental Resources Management (DERM).
“The Palm-Hibiscus project, which started in 2016 has been significantly delayed causing much angst and concern with residents” Samuelian shared. “[During that time] more than 200 drainage structures, on both public and private property, were installed without approval of DERM, which has been a major problem.”
The commission had invited the head of DERM and County Commissioner Eileen Higgins to attend, this is where they shared what the issues were. Samuelian said it was time to “Fix it, fix it fast, and learn from the mistakes.”
