A controversial proposal to build 211 apartments on Lake Miriam Drive near South Florida Avenue will be considered by Lakeland city commissioners at their 9 a.m. meeting Monday. It will be the last topic on their agenda, The Ledger reports. The developers reduced the number of units and height of two of the buildings after some commissioners expressed reluctance to approve the project at a previous hearing. | The official document

  1. Project is still not compatible. Lake Miriam traffic affects more than that immediate area which developer either does not grasp or chooses to ignore..
    Hoping the commission listens to citizens and not out 9f town developers and their out of town hirelings.

  2. It gets so congested that people are now diverting to my road, Fitzgerald Rd. Traffic has greatly increased since Wawa opened on our corner, lots of speeders and no sidewalks for our kids to walk to Lakeland Middle School. Apartments are a bad idea.
