Miami Commissioner Marc Sarnoff held a community meeting Tuesday to present plans for the Coconut Grove waterfront redevelopment.
The waterfront area near Miami City Hall is currently home the The Chart House and Scotty's Landing restaurants, old Pan American Airlines hangers, and the old Grove Exhibition Center.
The Grove Bay development group plans a project with three restaurants that overlook Biscayne Bay, a park and a public pier.
"It gives access to the waterfront to all of us, boaters and non-boaters," Sarnoff said. "There's a public pier. When's the last time you remember seeing a public pier in Miami?"
Before the project can begin, voters must approve it. A lease for the public land is on the ballot for the November 5th election.
Some residents aren't supporting the plan, but Sarnoff says there are a lot of untrue rumors about what the development includes.
"You've heard rumors of everything from skyscrapers to massive redevelopments. It's really a beautiful plan, a well thought out plan," Sarnoff said. "It's a plan for the people. I think it's really a quality of life enhancer for the Grove."
