A massive email drive has begun in an effort to flood a U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs office with Kendale Lakes residents’ objections to a tribal trust designation for the Miccosukee Golf and Country Club.
A group working with Miles Moss, former president of the Kendall Federation of Homeowner Associations, is circulating wording of two documents to protest an action indicated in a Jan. 15 letter sent to Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez from Randall Trickey, acting director of the Bureau’s Eastern Region in Nashville, TN.
Because the Bureau acts without a public hearing in the procedure, one transmission by the sender simply requests to be added as an “interested party” in the matter and to be advised of all application activities.
A second prepared message expresses concerns that would “severely impact” the residential neighborhood, raising safety, land use, security and utility concerns as well as potential drainage issues.
That email also asks Trickey to set a public hearing in the community on a weekday evening at 7 p.m. so that concerns could be voiced directly to the acting director.
Either or both emails are prepared for transmission to Randall.email@example.com.
Moss, who spoke directly with Trickey to explain the protest, said it was “rather amazing” that it appeared as if it was “the first time he ever heard this.” For more information, contact Moss by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone at 305-386-1212.
