Miami 21, the ambitious and controversial city zoning rewrite passed in October after years of vetting, revision and intense public debate, may get delayed yet again -- this time at the request of new Mayor Tomás Regalado, who was the lone vote against the measure.
Supporters of the new, urban-oriented rule book fear Regalado is attempting to pull the plug on Miami 21 before it takes effect. Regalado says all he intends to do is ask the city's three sitting commissioners for a 90-day delay in the implementation of Miami 21, which is now scheduled to go into effect in February. The delay, until May, will be debated at the commission Dec. 17.
The article goes on to discuss the Mayor-elect's alleged reason for requesting the delay--a reason that has some wondering whether an ulterior motive (that is, killing the code) really exists. --Chad Emerson, Faulkner
