Redland Community Activist Selling Home

Redland Fortune CookieI was somewhat surprised, and more than a little disappointed to see Pat Wade's home with a For Sale sign outside.  And my disappointment did not stem from the fact that she did not list with me.  lol

No, my disappointment wasn't self-serving.  I've seen how hard Pat has worked in the effort to incorporate the Redland. 

I support Redland incorporation. 

I hope Pat won't be going too far and will be available for guidance, if needed. 

My best wishes to Pat and her family in their new endeavours.

Maggie, is Redland a suburb or an area of a larger city, I'm a little confused.  is it a town like Estero is and they want to turn it into a city?

Chris sorry to confuse you.  When I'm done with all my posts I will interlink them.  Redland is technically part of Miami.  Our address says "Miami, FL."  But the fight to incorporate it and make it a city unto it's own has been going on for 10 years.  The Redland is the last barrier between urban sprawl and the Everglades.  We're fighting to keep it rural.

Maggie, Thank you for the kind words. My husband and I are tired  of the fight to preserve our beautiful Redland agriculture and decided it was time to hand the reins to the younger folks. We hope they appreciate  what a wonderful and unique place this is and can keep the wolves from the door for another 50 years. We will miss our nursery and wonderful friends but need to move on.

Thank you, Pat Wade

Pat - how wonderful of you to stop by!  You have fought long and hard to incorporate and it's been an uphill battle the whole way.  I, for one, appreciate what you have done. 

I told Cora M. (before your home even went on the market) that I wanted to get in touch with you about becoming more involved in the efforts to incorporate.  I am still interested in doing more and hope that I am able to reach you.  I hate to think what the developers will turn our beautiful Redland into if left to them.

If you do make it back here, please email me.  I would love to have you as a guest writer on my local Redland blog www.TheBlogThatAteMiami.com  I may drop you a note.  I pass your home almost daily.

Thanks for showcasing the lovely home and nursery that Pat Wade is selling in Redland. This couple has donated years of what should be their retirement to spearhead Redland incorporation and hold the UDB line among many other projects which benefit all of us. I would love to add you to our pro incorporation group of folks who really love our Redland the way it is. Contact me at any time.
