“What we heard from the governor and cabinet was a summary dismissal, with absolutely no discussion whatsoever,” said a spitting mad Mayor Lerner of Pinecrest. Governor Scott and the cabinet heard hours of testimony – mostly against the power line plan – before approving it.
The new power lines are not at all typical. Most of the 88 miles of poles would rise the equivalent of ten to fifteen stories high with the girth of a big oak tree.
“Economically it’s a disaster for the people that live there,” said lifetime South Miami resident Cynthia Kucaba. “Can you imaging having a five foot(wide)pole in your front yard a hundred and fifty feet high!”
