"In the new plans for Biscayne Boulevard, what is happening to the Royal Palms? They were planted in 1926, each in memory of a World War I veteran who died. Any destruction of the Royal Palms of Biscayne Boulevard would be a betrayal. The new plans don't even have many Royal Palms visible, when Royal Palms are the hallmark of Biscayne Boulevard and downtown Miami. The City Council passed an ordinance making the Royal Palms on Biscayne Boulevard a historic Transportation Corridor. Perhaps both the Royal Palms and the promenade can both be accomplished and you can keep the beautiful Royal Palms as a symbol of downtown Miami and the grand Boulevard."—Frank [Fun With Urban Planning]
