Topical Currents

A Look At Zoning Changes That Threaten Historical Structures


12/03/14 - Join us for Wednesday’s Topical Currents when we address South Florida architectural and land issues. In recent years, developers have razed buildings that some residents consider to have historical value. Many threatened structures are in Miami Beach.  There’s controversy in the Bay Harbor Islands community as well.  Preservation advocates now see a resumption of a South Florida condo construction boom. 

  • Teri D'Amico, Principal and Senior Designer of DADA, D’Amico Design Associates, North Miami, FL
  • Daniel Ciraldo, Miami Beach community advocate  representative for the Miami Design Preservation League
  • Hilary Lewis, Senior Editor of Fort Lauderdale based TROPIC Magazine and expert on architecture, urban planning, and real estate development

 Topical Currents . . . Wednesday at 1pm on WLRN.

WLRN Radio's Joseph Cooper says producing and hosting Topical Currents is the most rewarding experience of his long radio career, which began at the University of Missouri School of Journalism in the 1970s.
Richard Ives came to WLRN in September 2000 to begin a new career in radio. Born in Fort Lauderdale, his family moved to Long Island, New York, where he grew up. After graduation from college and an unsatisfying stint in a job that, as he puts it, "paid the bills but for which I had no passion" he found himself contemplating a midlife career change after being laid-off.
