Contested Florida Land to be Dino Museum?

In the '80s, Windley Key Fossil Reef Geological Park in Islamorada, Fla., was destined to become home to a condo development until a state commissioner stepped in and placated local preservationists fighting for the land. Now, though, the very same plot is being discussed as site of an open-air dinosaur museum with 300 prehistoric lifestyle models. Sort of gives new meaning to "NIMBY," no? [Miami Herald via Real Deal]
