REQUEST FROM THE HISTORIC PRESERVATION ASSOCIATION OF CORAL GABLES TO PLACE A DOUBLE-SIDED HISTORIC MARKER FOR THE ALHAMBRA CIRCLE BRIDLE PATH / CORAL GABLES RIDING ACADEMY AND APPROVAL OF MARKER TEXT:

Ms. Spain introduced Karelia Carbonell, President of the Historic Preservation Association of Coral Gables (HPACG).

For context, Ms. Carbonell relayed the organization’s research regarding the City’s early bridle path and riding academy as well as the significance of this area to the City’s history. Regarding the referenced marker and on behalf of the board of directors of HPACG, Ms. Carbonell requested a historical marker to be placed in the area of the southwest corner of Salzedo Street and Giralda Avenue to identify and increase awareness of the cultural heritage in the City of Coral Gables and to enhance the enjoyment of both residents and visitors, commemorating a forgotten important part of local Coral Gables history.

The proposed 1,235-character text of the historical marker was considered favorably by the Board as presented. Mr. Silva advised that the marker should be readable on both sides and accessible to pedestrians.

A motion was made and seconded to approve the marker and text as presented, and to include the suggestion made by Mr. Silva. (Ayes: 9, Nays: 0)
