Fred did a great job building the business. He spent lots of time and money building that brand. Unlike, lets say the hurricane that never upgraded anything other then their back account. I liked the Hurricane, don-t get me wrong, but it is the truth. And now that is gone.Woodys will be here for a long time I hope.And yes thank you FRED SUCO for building a clean save local Tavern for the city to enjoy.I wish the NEW owner WELL.
A BIG THANK YOU TO FRED SUCO FOR WHAT HE STARTED IN MIAMI SPRINGS. THE FIRST TO INVEST HIS MONEY BACK INTO THE BUSINESS AND KEEP IT UP. ASWAYS FRASH PAINT AND CLEAN. I WISH FRED GODS SPEED IN HIS RECOVERY. THANK YOU FRED. I HOPE THE NEW OWNERS WILL DO THE SAME AND FOLLOW THE PLAN YOU SET UP TO EXPAND THE BUSINESS.
BUILD, BUILD, BUILD, WE NEED THEM. HIGH, I WANT TO GO SO HIGH... TAX DOLLARS A PLUS. TRAFFICE WHO CARES WE HAVE TRAFFIC NO MATTER WHAT. 36 STREET IS A MESS THANKS TO THE CITY OF DORAL.THE CIRCLE THANKS TO THE SCHOOLS AND HIALEAH. SO LETS MAKE ARE OWN TRAFFIC.
If they these are apartments are down with cl and have that Pueblo Design and green area with trees not palms then I-m all for it. But if its going to be the same cheap modern white boxy looking style like every s.c.u.m developers does with skinny little palms after....then I have a problem
I am not who you think I am and I am not trying to be negative. I am a concerned long time resident and just want all the residents to realize that the beautiful Miami Springs we knew has become non-existent. The store fronts along Westward drive are along a very sunny, and stifling hot sidewalks with no relief from shade. All you see on Westward drive are hair cut shops, realtors, and dentists. We no longer have a bike shop or a lawn mower shop. We no longer have a five and dime store - nothing for families to do. The city should buy that vacant lot on Westward and make it into a shady park with benches, or a putt-putt golf courseÖSomething for the residents.
I think that it may have been Shakespeare who said "Never wage war with someone who buys their ink by the barrel" Unless you have VERY deep pockets to pay for attorneys in a civil proceeding and enjoin against the city-s right to zone according to charter you are dreaming; no, you are delusional.
IF THIS IS TRUE AND APARTMENTS ARE COMING THIS WILL BE A BIG DEAL FOR MIAMI SPRINGS. THE TAX DOLLARS THAT THE CITY WILL BE PAID YEAR AFTER YEAR WILL BENIEFIT THE CITY TREMENDOUSLY. WIN WIN FOR THE CITY. I FOR ONE ONE LOVE THIS AND I HOPE IT GOES THROUGH... SHOW ME THE TAX MONEY....BUILD BUILD BUILD...
The City is buying the property to convert it into a new City Hall Complex police department and jail to put the old busy body gossiping old ladies in it while the eradicate the feral cats, ducks and iguanas. You have to admit that it has a nice ring to it 😂😂😂
And now this whole Shopping Plaza is on sale too. THIS IS GOING TO BE A NIGHTMARE FOR US.. our Miami springs low key Charm is gone people 😢 and City does not care....MiamiSprings.com should post on there facebook when properties are sold and everything else that happens to keep everybody alert even what happens on Council meeting, but of course being neutral.
I-m not a fan of wholesale police bashing. We have the best department in all of South Florida. My gripe is that we need more cops. We need to reduce the speeding. We need to stop the 36th street crime and criminal infestation. Prostitution - Drugs - Car thieves are rampant on 36th street. That diminishes our community.
Of course this matter. I just can not picture everything being torn down just to add low end looking apartment. This city attorney was pushing to adjust some codes for this area and got it because the developer wanted it or else the developer doesn-t buy. This are some of the garbage things developers do to make money and they have no concern about the surrounding area or residents. Another cold feeling grey and white boxy looking building will constructed...... When is the next election ????
We live in a small city. Be glad for that. Dial 911 and within a few minutes the police are there. The police do a great job keeping the city safe. They can not be everwhere at the same time.If someone has a hard on for the police go and speak with them. Don-t hide on this site. Man or women up. What ever the case is take you concerns to the POLICE DEPARTMENT.Nothing is perfect. Could some officers do better. The answer is yes. Over all they do a great job in a thankless job. Cut it already go down and speak with them.Notice I have not told you who to speck with. I did this for a reason. JUST DO IT...
It sold. There are no plans as of now to build on that location. As far as we know all the business have a lease and whould need to be bought out. Carlos has p ed and his wife sold the plaza. No big deal. RELAX.. RIP CARLOS...
Say no more. I was at the cozy corner diner on Westward this morning eating my usual biscuits and gravy. I ran into my friend Jay Masters and he confirmed Dick Wilson is in on it. Now Jay told me heís going to a Masonís meeting this week and will confront Dick Wilson on the purchase. Jay Masters is a bathroom fixture wholesaler. Heís going to want to get in on any construction plans.
You-re free to choose where you spend your time. Nevertheless, the Police Officer Drug scandal was revealed here first. It-s important to allow employees, residents, and city insiders an avenue to express concerns and issues without fear of retribution.
Gosh darn it! It has to be Dick Wilson who bought the shopping plaza. Heís been saying he was going to do it for some time at Brysonís. I just thought he had one too many. Heís probably going to knock the whole place down. Connor Stevenís told me to check with Czervik demolition. Iíll find out more tonight at Brysonís.
Ok so when did cops not become human? They canít use their cellphones at work? Canít take a break? What should they be doing at all times, that is acceptable to you? This forum is nonsense, and should be taken down. Not informative, just pure hate on here.
Ok so we have a Bike Police officer (looks like hes from central america) on Curtiss at around 6:00 who is suppose to be catching people speeding, but instead he his on his phone wasting time and not taking his job serioisly. This is the garbage we have in the Police Dept.
Apartment Apartment Apartment. The charm that everyone loves about this city will finally come to an end when these low end modern boxy looking building are constructed. We will tall soon blend in with the rest with no Pueblo Design in site, more people, more traffic and more crime. The city knew what was coming because developers wont buy the codes arent adjusted. Happens all the time. Wonder if garcia was behind this with his new corrupt buddy he works for
apparently the whole shopping sold and I think the theater too. Does anybody know who sold it. Wont be surprised if the new owners are slimy developers. If so, everything will demolished to build cheap box tower of apartments. Doesnt look good guys. Get ready for a little taste Cheaply overly built buildings this will destroy the look of the Springs. Say your goodbyes now.
Windrem and Garcia were like the Studsky and Clutch of the council. Garcia would lie and Windrem would swear it was true. I think that it has always been a bad idea to elect realtors to the council; their motives are suspect at best.🤥💲
Wasnít he in Garciaís back pocket too? We need new blood with no political or personal tia to the old mayor or his cronies People with no hidden agendas and no ties to social interest groups wanting something in return.
You are obviously not reading the posts dealing with the concerns expressed in these pages. You are either dumb as a rock, on crack,or an agent provocateur that just likes to stir up the crap because you love the smell, or one of the officers recently relieved of their duties because of a plethora of legitimate issues. I guess that you want to bring back the wife beating motorman, the chicken little chief, the old drunks, etc. Gee how I miss the "Good Old Days" of the police department!
The City needs to seriously take action and clean out the Police Dept COMPLETELY. These officier are doing whatever they want and the bad habit and corruption is growing. Stop it now before it gets complicated. Everyone must go. This Chief has destroyed the integrity of this dept. He must leave along with everyone else. We are paying high taxes for this to be happening. Bring back what we had before.
Amazing what a piece of trash. Smearing some peopleís names BUT if the story pertains to someone who works for this tag or their family members they either squash the story completely or beet away from real facts !!!
Hopefully the residents will not forget the pool fiasco during the next election. You might attempt to make a joke about it but it really is a serious matter for the millions of dollars involved in such a obvious error.
The biggest waste at the so called aquatic center is the huge building which is certainly under used. Also the cabanas which the council has recently been forced to drastically lower the rental fees in an attempt to recoup a little of the wasted money.
Yes I am well aware of garcia-s shady past and dealings. I just meant I have no proof of any kick-backs re city business so I won-t go there. He sure as heck did ram rod the deficient major projects through that we are stuck with for decades though. So he certainly deserves most of the blame for so many expensive lousy expensive decisions. But his issues with an arrest, eviction, sign stealing, IRS cheating, reneging on his mortgage, washing money from his campaign funds to a political consultant and back again etc is well do ented. And yes, he has had a lot of slimy stuff ignored by the SA and other authorities. Hopefully he will not try to make a comeback but if he does hopefully people will have wised up. But I doubt it.
You-re fair and I appreciate that, but I am calling corruption. It-s good enough for the Miami New Times to call the former mayor corrupt. I-m not calling any of the other council members corrupt. I may not agree with them, but there-s never been evidence with the other members of corruption. As for Garcia, he-s been dangerously corrupt for a long time. He-s been investigated multiple times by the State Attorney-s Office and they looked the other way.
It always amazes me how shortsighted some people can be. A poster on here is satisfied that their kids love the kiddie pool. That-s fine. By all accounts its a great kiddie pool. But as community leaders our council should have thought progressive not regressive. We went from a competition sized pool that could be used for meets, training, laps etc to an undersized pool with that great kiddie area and a bunch of buildings. I won-t make a claim of corruption because I can-t prove it. What is evident though is that the council was inept and even derelict when they spent 5 million for an inadequate pool. And they knew better because many in the community spoke out in public and otherwise about wanting and needing a real pool. But the council, with considerable brow beating by garcia went the foolish way. They were stupid and afraid of garcia. Period. It would not have broke us to add a little to the pool to make it functional. Or even included in the 5 million by cutting back on some of the building development. The council including the present councilman blew it. They should not be given the privileged of future decision making for Miami Springs.
The pool is a great kiddie pool. But it was a step forward for kids 5 and under and a step backwards for kids 10 and up. It-s tiny. Never room to swim. No diving. That-s what happens when a corrupt politician (New Times words not mine) builds an over $5 million project and pockets the kickbacks.
Doral is a much larger and wealthier community than MS, so it speaks volumes that they didnt want to waste tax money building an olympic size pool, too. My kids love the family friendly pool we built. We are there every weekend.

MOTION TO DISMISS1 Complaint FOR FAILURE TO STATE A CLAIM AND SUPPORTING MEMORANDUM OF LAW by Albert Sandoval. Responses due by 9 26 2018 (Stearns, Christopher)
MOTION TO DISMISS1 Complaint FOR FAILURE TO STATE A CLAIM AND TO STRIKE REQUEST FOR PUNITIVE DAMAGES AND SUPPORTING MEMORANDUM OF LAW by City of Miami Springs. Responses due by 9 26 2018 (Stearns, Christopher)
Whatever happened to that dream pool Doral was building? You know, the one that would take 30 - 45 minutes to get to in rush hour traffic? Crickets - Crickets - Crickets - Meanwhile, we-re stuck with an inadequate pool and the bill. What a failure.
What-s up with the hate? If the officer was on Cocaine, the city has a duty to remove him from active duty, but also has a duty to provide addiction treatment services. Drug addiction is a serious disease.
Is that what you are blaming for your cocaine positive drug test? Here is your wake up call: no one is buying that line of bs and no judge is going to side with a cocaine using cop. Please check into a drug treatment facility and get some help for your problem.
Pre workouts contain cocaine now?!? Lol geez now iíve heard it all. Even when faced with reality, you still find a way to blur the truth. Iím just happy that this coke head is off the force. Great way to embarr your family and friends Chris! Enjoy the unemployment line.
i just read the gazette. wow. so why didnt the cocaine addict ex-cop just leave quietly and move on to another career? doesnt he have any shame? instead he filed a federal lawsuit and now everyone knows his business. he comes from a family of cops so its got to be embarr ing for them. i know how i would feel if i was one of them.
Let me be clear, I LOVE seeing people using the bike shares and riding them on the streets. LOVE IT. We-re a bike friendly community. I HATE seeing bikes littered on the ground throughout our city. A long time ago we had a female city manager who put up bike racks throughout the city. Then, they were removed. (Because you know, government likes to waste money.) Can the city put bike racks back in the common places these bikes are used? Can the city ask lime to pay it? The bikes look horrible when they-re littered all over. It makes the city look trashy.
Beautiful Miami Springs is a quiet residential community located in the heart of Miami-Dade County, Florida. Literally, just minutes away from anything in Miami, it's a slow paced oasis within the larger hustle and bustle of greater Miami.
Miami Springs was founded in 1926 by Glenn Curtiss, also known as the "Father of Naval Aviation." Miami Springs is a middle to upper middle class neighborhood with a mix of blue collar and white collar workers. At the core of Miami Springs is a championship style 18 hole golf course that has hosted hundreds of tournaments and celebrities alike.
Miami Springs has a mix of homes ranging from modest to luxury. Most of the larger, luxury style homes can be found along the beautiful golf course.
Miami Springs has a row of hotels along NW 36 Street, adjacent to Miami International Airport. The proximity to the airport and the 10 - 15 minute distance to the Port of Miami Cruise Ships and South Beach makes Miami Springs a popular hotel destination for tourists from all across the globe.
MiamiSprings.com was created in 1997 by local businessman and Miami Springs resident, Nestor Suarez. Nestor loved the city he grew up in and created the first website dedicated to the Miami Springs and Virginia Gardens area. To this day, Mr. Suarez still operates the website providing local news, events, updates, and photos. The website also has a popular (and sometimes controversial) political forum where anyone can discuss current local issues, politics, ideas. Forum posts and Individual
