Brickell Resident Claudio Lovo has brought needed attention to something that might have otherwise gone under the radar…until it was too late. Lovo is urging Brickell residents to voice their opposition towards the removal of 22 mature (40 year old+) Black Olive trees along Brickell Bay Dr. (14th & 15th St) scheduled for August 16. I for one, love the walk along Brickell Bay Dr. and would hate to see the beauty of the trees go, not to mention the shade they provide! Why for the removal? According to a Lovo Tweet…

Taking notice of the discussion on Twitter is our fearless City of Miami Commissioner for District 2 and Chairman of the Miami Downtown Development Authority, Marc Sarnoff. He suggests this:
