On Wednesday, September 17, 2014, the City Council voted against the Transal Project 3-2 after initially favoring the project back in the July 2014 Zoning Meeting.
The Coalition would like to thank its members for standing up to the developers and the City Council on behalf of the residents of Doral. A special thanks goes out to Michael Wermuth, Rick Morales, Carlos Mariaca, Norberto Spangaro, Alberto J. Ruiz and Linda Scott for their presence and/or speeches to the City Council during the Zoning Meeting. Their contributions, among with other unnamed members, made this victory for the City and its people possible.
If the Transal Project would have passed, then it would have provided developers with the green light to apply for projects that go against the City's Comprehensive Master Plan, the plan that provides the City with structured growth, which would have lead to a decrease in the City and resident's quality of life, including detrimental effects to the logistics industry.

We would also like to thank the Mayor and Councilwomen Ana Maria and Bettina for supporting the residents and businesses of Doral in their opposition to Transal.
The fight is far from over! The developers may want to appeal to circumvent the will of the residents of Doral. We need your help to continue to make Doral the place where people go to live, work, play and learn!
