Homeowners protest Miccosukee Golf and Country Club.
If the Country Club becomes a Tribal Trust Land it could allow the tribe to change the land use to Multi-Family, a Hotel or Casino!SIGN THE PETITION KFHA
The golf course had a 99-year zoning restriction (covenant), placed in 1972, requiring the
property to remain a golf course and any changes requiring 75% of the neighbors and a majority of
the County Commission, to approve any changes in land use.
Many concerns in addition to zoning, such as public safety, traffic, drainage and gambling support the need to not allow this property to become Tribal Trust Land.
In 2001, the Kendale Lakes Golf and Country Club, 230 acres in West Kendall, was purchased by the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians. And in 2003 the tribe asked the Federal Government to designate this property Tribal Trust Land. Originally it was an amenity offered to local homeowners. It is still surrounded by tree lined streets - a canopy of trees and lush green lawns. Coral rocks cover a mote which is located around its circumference and it is dotted with lakes.
Increase in traffic.
Can a casino be built in such proximity to homes and schools?
Is 99-year covenant for property to remain a golf course lost?
Decrease in property value.
