Another emergency meeting was held this week in Wynwood after a petition backed by Moishe Mana garnered over 37,000 signatures.
Mana’s petition on Change.org was addressed to city leaders including Mayor Francis Suarez. It came after the Wynwood Marketplace operating on his property was shut by violating city rules.

Mana’s Save Wynwood petition wrote that billionaire developers are trying to gentrify the neighborhood. In an email, PR representatives for the district noted that Mana himself was a billionaire developer with plans for the largest project in the neighborhood.
The BID’s Regulatory & Capital Committee held a meeting this week to review existing City regulations related to Temporary Use Permits, Special Event Permits, and the Noise Ordinance. Representatives of Mana were invited.
