In more proof of ill-will from Wawa and their developer, Redevco, on Wednesday, April 14th and Thursday, April 15th, two large live oaks were cut down by Redevco defying the commitment Wawa had made to halt the process until the pending legal battle was handled in Court.
The first tree came down just two days prior to the first scheduled hearing on pending lawsuit from the Gables Accountability Project.
The trees were located in the swale on County property, but permits had been approved by Miami-Dade County.
On Thursday, the County served Redevco with a notice of violation for violating the County’s tree protection zone ordinance. The ordinance requires a temporary fence be placed around trees near construction sites.
Gables Insider reached out to Wawa and Redevco for comment, and neither replied.
