Was the Islamorada Village Council blindsided by a group of unethical business people, resulting in a zoning change for what was going to be a Winn-Dixie but now we don't know what?
Winn-Dixie is a company we trust. We do not have to support the unnamed mystery store in the future. This is about money. Do not give them yours. This is a classic case of bait and switch.
Zoning laws protects property values. With big-box grocery stores come the inevitable rats, snakes, feral cats, diesel fumes, semi-truck deliveries, traffic and lots of money leaving the area. They do not create jobs, since the pay is so low, living and working here is impossible.
Shame on everyone involved. Sadly, the attorney taking credit for this lives here.
