The Town of Davie has just posted a contract with their agenda item to discuss providing the town of Southwest Ranches with Fire/EMS services, coverage that would extend to the plans the Town has for a future 2500 bed 500,000 sq. ft. detention center.
See the excerpt taken from contract below.
Remember back in November when they said they were going to cap it at 1500 beds? We didn't believe them, and now we see that we were right to not trust the Town and CCA capping the beds at 1500. All the Town and CCA care about is showing them the money because their Town is drowning in liabilities for parks brought in from the Canada days...
Now they have almost doubled this facility from 1500 beds to 2500 which would be 4.5 times the size of Krome brought into West Broward County. Krome is a 500 bed facility. To put this in terms that you might understand better we are going to do some Wal-Mart math.
The average Walmart store is approximately 97,000 square feet, while Walmart's larger stores, referred to as Super Centers, carries a square footage of approximately 186,000. - Ask.com
How do you like THEM apples?
If not, email the Davie Council and make your voice heard by asking them not to allow this to happen. Email your Officials. Better Yet, ATTEND the Davie Town Council meeting located at 6591 Orange Drive on Wednesday, May 2nd at 6:30 pm. Pembroke Pines said they didn't have a vote on the Detention Center yet they were called on it for providing Fire/EMS and Water/Sewer for it in the Fire/EMS Agreement. Politifact did a nice article on that.
Do they not realize how secure communities and this detention center will ruin our community?
