As you may know, hurricane damage shut down plenty in Flamingo and the Park has finally prepared and is presenting three alternatives for a rebuild.  

As of now, I know very little of the details, but in the interest of time am posting ways you/we can learn about, and have the chance to toss in our "public comments"...

First, there's a couple meetings...


Everglades National Park is pleased to announce the release of the Draft Flamingo Commercial Services Plan/Environmental Assessment (Draft Plan). The Draft Plan analyzes 3 alternatives for re-establishing commercial services and facilities at Flamingo destroyed by hurricanes in 2005. Three public workshops will be held from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. There will be a presentation at 7:00p.m. with time before and after for the public to view project information, talk with park staff, and provide comments.

December 3, 2007 - Int'l Game Fish Assoc. Hall of Fame, 300 Gulfstream Way, Dania Beach, FL.
December 4, 2007 - South Dade Regional Library, 10750 SW 211th Street, Miami, FL.
December 13, 2007* - Key Largo Holiday Inn, 99701 Overseas Highway, Key Largo, FL.

And last, here's a few links...

To review the drafts and comment: Link for Review and Your Comments

Select "Everglades NP" from the drop down box, then "Flamingo CSP/EA", and "Open For Public Comment". The "Document List" link provides a list of So. Florida libraries that have proper paper copies for review.

Apparently you might also be able to get a CD (I assume for free): "CD's will be available at the public workshops or may be requested by calling the park at 305-242-7700. If prompted by voice mail, press "2" and 1st prompt and "5" at 2nd prompt to leave mailing information. A limited number of paper copies of the Draft Plan are also available."

You can also put yourself on an official mailing list:
Submit a request Here, or
Send Email to "Kat Berry" Here

ps. if any of you engage in this and/or get a CD, do post what you found, understand, how you did it, etc...

Tight lines,
Capn Jimbo
