    MIAMI
    Virginia Key plan is approved
    .By ANDRES VIGLUCCI
    aviglucci@MiamiHerald.com
    A downscaled version of a controversial and oft-delayed plan that would guide the transformation of ecologically damaged Virginia Key into a recreational and natural showcase won the unanimous endorsement of the Miami City Commission on Thursday.

    City administrators said they are already looking to move ahead with several key pieces of the conceptual plan for the publicly owned island, which is bisected by the Rickenbacker Causeway -- including construction of mountain-bike trails on North Point, to be done gratis by volunteers, as well as restoration of the historic but deteriorated Miami Marine Stadium.

    Mayor Tomás Regalado said he's exploring the possible use of federal stimulus money to begin stadium restoration work next year.

    Administrators are also looking into a proposal, developed by community groups and architecture students and faculty at the University of Miami, to expand and rebuild two substandard city marinas at the island's western end near the stadium.

    City Manager Carlos Migoya said profits from the improved marinas could help finance redevelopment of the Marine Stadium and its acres of underused parking lots, most of which would be turned into parkland and staging areas for triathlons and rowing competitions.

    Like older versions, this newest proposal calls for continuing environmental restoration of beaches and upland areas, establishment of playing fields on an old landfill and a network of nature and bicycle trails. But the size and scope of the various elements have been reduced, some drastically, in response to complaints that previous plans favored concrete over nature.
