PHOTO BRIEF: S.T.A.N.D. Vigil

Adrianne D'Angelo//Asst Photo Editor

Barbara Henry, a resident of Overtown since she was 15, attends S.T.A.N.D.’s vigil for community voices on Wednesday October 20. The University of Miami Life Science & Technology Park (UM LSTP) is being built in Overtown, with preparation to open in the summer of 2011. The University  believes the UM LSTP will benefit the area residents. However, local residents would like an agreement to guarantee that this 7.6 acre facility does not dispurse them. Attendies signed a petition that will go to President Donna Shalala about the agreement. “Overtown is a town looking to clasp hands in partnership,” said Bishop Adams, a 6 month resident and vocal member of the Overtown community. For more information on the UM Life Science and Technology Park, visit www.umlsp.com.
