REPORT: Local Miami Residents "Bribed" To Oppose Ultra Return At City Council Meetings

Arguably one the most important tales the previous month, if not this yr, is that the Miami City Council has ficially voted to not renew Ultra Music Festival’s contract in Bayfront Park. The want to kick Ultra out Bayfront is nothing new, however this marks the primary time that the Council has efficiently garnered the required help to make it a really actual chance.

The help got here largely from native residents who flocked to the town council conferences in droves, complaining noise and the shortcoming to sleep. Note: Ultra cuts sound f at midnight on Friday and Saturday, and at 11pm on Sunday. Now, in a thread on reddit, one person who claims to be a resident the constructing “proper throughout the road” claims that constructing managers had been bribing renters with presents to attend conferences and likewise offering shuttles to the conferences.

The effort appears to stem from constructing builders. It’s arduous to consider that property worth could be so severely affected by occasions that go on on the park, however I can’t assume one more reason why they'd be so staunchly concerned.

While Ultra plans to attraction the choice and produce an up to date contract to the council at a future assembly, the council has made additional plans to earmark 85% the yr at Bayfront Park for public occasions. This means solely 55 days out the yr could be given to non-public corporations for arrange, occasion, and tear down. While that a lot time is loads for Ultra by itself, it leaves little or no for different occasions who would undoubtedly enter into some form territory battle if the preliminary resolution turns into everlasting.
