Saving the live oak tree at 2800 Shipping Ave. The Village Council's appeal to deny a permit to build a duplex at 2800 Shipping Ave. because it would require removal of one of the Grove's most important live oak trees was upheld by the City of Miami Historic and Environmental Preservation Board (HEPB) at its meeting of March 2, 2021. Read the Village Council's resolution to file the appeal here. Read our letter to the HEPB here. The Village Council led an effort to negotiate for construction on the property that will preserve the specimen oak tree. The mutually agreed-upon resolution with the property's developer was reached at the HEP Board meeting of May 4, 2021. Read more about this in the Coconut Grove Spotlight here.
