Dear Friends, Your tireless efforts and support for the Lotus Village project have been invaluable! Last night, Miami City Commission voted unanimously to approve the land use and rezoning applications for Lotus Village. We welcomed this life saving victory with tears of joy and deepest gratitude! The support of each and every Miami City Commissioner and so many of our neighbors, businesses, property owners and community leaders from Overtown and throughout Miami have made this very important first step possible. We are deeply appreciative! A special note of thanks to our pro bono counsel Bilzin Sumberg, Schwartz Media, and the leadership of the Miami Dade County Homeless Trust!
Now we move on to the final two hearings needed before we break ground for Lotus Village! Please save the dates ~ July 6th for our final Planning and Zoning hearing and July 14th for our final City Commission hearing. Please make a difference for women and children in need in our community with your supportive presence and words on our behalf at these two very important final hearings. We need your help to bring this home!
Many many heartfelt thanks! With love from Lotus House, Constance
