A Legal Perspective

Observes attorney Sam Dubbin, “It is remarkable that the City Commission would consider a resolution to allow Ultra back into Bayfront Park when the Commissioners and other City officials are fully on notice that Ultra’s noise level has been shown to cause health damage and loss of property use to the residents. They are also on notice that the transaction violates the City Charter because there has been no competitive bidding, no appraisals, and Ultra would pay a fraction of fair market value for its months-long usurpation of Bayfront Park. That the agreement is titled “revocable license” does not make it so, and courts have previously rejected such a cynical violation of the City Charter. Less than a year ago, the Commission properly, and unanimously, rejected a proposal that would have generated twice as much money. It is difficult to understand how any Commissioner would now run the risk of personally violating the Charter to bring Ultra back into the City.”

If Ultra does come for 2020, Bayfront Park will be closed for residents the best five months of the year. Ilustration courtesy of Save Bayfront Park.

“Regardless of our opinion towards UMF, its the City’s approach that I find to be extremely offensive, dismissive and illegal and that needs to Stop!” DNA President.
