Even if you're Gored and Bushed by Election 2000, it's important that all citizens vote on this issue. The future of Deerfield Beach is once again in our hands....
If we pass on this one the city commission will almost certainly hand a valuable part of our beach over to commercial developers who want to build a shopping center on our beachfront.
Concept Plan for Commercial Plaza
Although touted as a park, the concept plan clearly shows that the proposed "Ocean Park" is mostly a parking garage and shopping center. The area reserved for a "park" occupies approximately 1.5 acres. About half of this is space for the amphitheater. This means that the actual "park" would occupy a space (designated by the black box) equivalent to the area of about three ordinary residential lots.
At a price tag of over $10 million this could well be the most expensive park in the country!

HELP DEERFIELD BEACH WIN. PLEASE VOTE ON NOVEMBER 7TH.
Vote NO to BULLdozer Politics! Let's tell the city commissioners that we don't want them to give away the public beach parking lot to private investors.
