Doesn’t look like anyone is laughing all the way to the bank.
According to New Times, a $500,000 donation by developers of a controversial Courtyard retail development is under scrutiny. Members of the historic Community Church received the money prior to approving the offer to develop its Courtyard. The project was then approved by the Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board. Because the donation was not considered by the Board, Miami Beach’s special master ruled the decision was an error.
The ruling means that the Historic Preservation Board must now decide if the donation was properly disclosed.
