Iguana makes appearance at tournament. The Ross overture comes as Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez wants to explore a potential court fight over the strict controls that the owner of the Miami Open tennis tournament failed to get tossed in court last year.
Restrictions on the land gift prohibited significant construction on the park, and the settlement stemmed from a Matheson court fight over the original tennis facility built to house the tournament.
The rules established a four-person committee to govern the park, with a Matheson-picked charity controlling two of the seats. An heir, Bruce Matheson, holds one of them and has fought to maintain strict controls over expansion at Crandon, including allowing new tennis facilities that were endorsed in a countywide referendum in Recently, another Matheson heir, Christine Matheson Andersen, has proposed winning consensus from her relatives to overrule Bruce, a cousin, and renegotiate the settlement.
Gene Stearns, a lawyer for the tennis tournament who led the fight against the current restrictions, said the payment offer was his idea. He also said the plan restricts safety improvements, such as bike lanes and new ocean-rescue facilities.
The agreement gives the National Parks Conservation Association, a Washington-based nonprofit organization, the authority to appoint two of the four committee seats, with a staffer, John Adornato, holding one and Matheson the other. Miami-Dade appoints the other two seats, currently held by tourism chief Bill Talbert and the head of the Miami Foundation, Javier Soto. The park expansion rules have foiled efforts to bring major golf tournaments to Crandon and also proved a daunting obstacle for President Donald Trump when he tried to take over the waterfront links at the park shortly before his presidential run.
Then a real-estate mogul with one of the largest hotels in Miami-Dade, Trump played Crandon with Gimenez in before formally launching a bid to negotiate a management agreement to run the course as a public park. The arrangement violated the park rules enforced by the Crandon committee, and Trump sought exceptions — including one that would allow his name to be featured on the golf course, according to county documents released once the negotiations became public in Lifting the restrictions could tempt the Trump organization to make another bid for Crandon.
