YOUR PARTICIPATION REQUESTED - Davie Commons up for a vote by the County on Tuesday 12/9.

Dear Southwest Ranches Friends and Neighbors:

Good Morning, Good Afternoon, Good Evening and if I don't see you later…well then…Good Night!

Tomorrow Tuesday, December 9, 2008, at 2 PM, Davie wants to give you your Christmas present early. They have an agenda item in front of the county commission to recommend the Commons Development of Regional Impact, to the State of Florida Department of Community Affairs (Davie Commons).

This project will have significant impact to you as a resident in a number of ways:
1. Widening Dykes Road to a four-lane highway from Weston to Pines. How's that for a cut-through road.
2. Tying Royal Palm Blvd into the Commons routing traffic through to Weston Rd, Bonaventure Blvd, and Griffin Road.
3. Possibly running a bridge over the canal to tie Shotgun Rd into Griffin Rd.

What this means for Davie, millions in tax dollars generated by 151 acres of what's now farmland.
What this means for Weston, millions in tax dollars from spill over sales from shoppers for doing nothing to stop it.
What this means for Southwest Ranches, thousand of cars every weekend cutting through our town to spend their money with our neighbors.

You can find out all of the details by clicking on the following link http://www.broward.org/commission/viewmeetings.htm and then clicking on the 12/9 Broward County Commission Public Hearing, then go to the botton and look up the details of agenda item #39.

If you support this regional development, do nothing at least get educated on the issue. If you are against the detrimental effect Davie Commons will have on your Town, lifestyle, security, and safety then contact your County Commission Diana Wasserman-Rubin now. Let her know you are against this development. She believes she is the swing vote and needs to hear from you right away. Her email address is dwassermanrubin@broward.org

Please send her an email stating that you do not support agenda item #38.which is a motion to adopt a resolution to transmit a proposed amendment to the Broward County Land Use Plan map (PC 07-14), located in the Town of Davie, relating to The Commons Development of Regional Impact, to the State of Florida Department of Community Affairs.

If you don't want to spend the time, please cut and paste the following and send it to her urgently at the above email address. If you can attend the meeting at the county commission chambers on Tuesday 12/9 at 2 PM speak out against this treat to our community.


Dear Commissioner Wasserman-Rubin,

As member of the affected community of Southwest Ranches and a neighbor of yours, I respectfully ask that you vote against resolution #39 a motion to adopt a resolution to transmit a proposed amendment to the Broward County Land Use Plan map (PC 07-14), located in the Town of Davie, relating to The Commons Development of Regional Impact, on the 12/9/08 Commission Agenda.

We believe that this development of regional impact significantly affect our community and will degrade our quality of life and debase the reasons most resident chose to locate their families here.
I appreciate your support on this issue by voting against this item and preserving the lifestyle I provide my family.

Respectfully,
(your name and address)






That's All Folks!

Diana Wasserman-Rubin sells out Southwest Ranches


Diana Wasserman-Rubin voted "FOR" the Davie commons project. If she had voted against it, it would have failed. She claims that a survey of Southwest Ranches residents were all for it. BULL! Freddy was there as was Doug and Mary Gay, all speaking out against the project, but it seems to have fallen on deaf ears. I guess that it will be a no-brainer who will not get our support in the next election.

Hey Wanch

Is Diana Wasserman-Rubin one of your "projects" during her next reelection try? I hope so.
