Promoters, Politicians and the Public’s Right to Access


Carlton Fields Associate Justin S. Wales was quoted in the Biscayne Times article, “Promoters, Politicians and the Public’s Right to Access.” The article discusses the gradual opening of Parcel B, a three-acre county-owned waterfront area behind the AmericanAirlines Arena, as well as ongoing improvements to the site and a nonprofit group’s plans to build a Cuban Exile History Museum.

Wales, whose nonprofit group Engage Miami has advocated for the creation of Dan Paul Park at Parcel B, lamented the Miami-Dade County Commission’s approval of the museum last year.

“The entire bayfront was supposed to be for the people,” Wales says. “Instead it’s being used as an Erector Set to build whatever they think they can build. We’re going to regret this in the future, when there’s no land for public use.”
