Dr. Lillian Rivera of Florida Department of Health to Address State’s Zika Response
Wynwood Community Dismayed that Developer Moishe Mana has Reneged on his Commitment to the Neighborhood
WHAT: The Board of the Wynwood Business Improvement District (BID) will host a special board meeting in which Dr. Lillian Rivera of the Florida Department of Health will discuss the latest advisory regarding Zika cases and how the government is addressing the issue in Wynwood.
The Wynwood BID will also seek answers from representatives of real estate developer Moishe Mana’s eleventh-hour changes to his Special Area Plan (“SAP”) proposal for a major Wynwood development project that may result in the neighborhood losing out on close to $30 million in public benefits, including more than $7 million in previously-agreed-to funds for the greater Wynwood area. These last-minute changes come after a year of negotiations with the Wynwood BID and at a time when the neighborhood is suffering significantly due to Zika-related issues.
