DADE OFFICIAL "BLASTS" MANY ASPECTS OF BLOCKBUSTER PARK PLAN
Published November 4, 1994
The last report launched during Blockbuster Park's first review period "landed with a bang" yesterday, when a Dade County growth management specialist, Carey Lee Rawlinson, "blasted nearly every aspect of the park's development plan." Calling the plan "grossly inadequate," Rawlinson said Blockbuster failed to indicate how the $1.4B sports and entertainment complex would affect Dade's economy. Rawlinson said park planners "never considered how much business or how many employees the project would sap from Dade County's existing sports and tourist-related businesses." He said the impact on attractions such as Joe Robbie Stadium, the Miami Arena and the local waterfront shopping plaza should be studied. Dade County was the last of two dozen state and local governments that submitted questions regarding Blockbuster's development application. Company consultants now have four months to respond (John Maines, Ft. Lauderdale SUN- SENTINEL, 11/4).
