Holding signs that read "Don't Trolley On Me" and "Coral Gables Has Crossed The Line", demonstrators flanked both sides of Douglas Road and Frow Avenue at the site of the construction project they are trying to fight.

Right across Frowe Avenue, community members began work on a mural project on the wall of a neighborhood market facing the construction project.
Mural organizer and West Grove resident Laurie Cook told Local 10's Christina Vazquez plans for the brightly colored mural were in the works before they learned of Astor's intention to build a trolley depot for Coral Gables at that site.
Now, the mural's theme of "One Grove" is serving as a protest message. In fact, that is one of the developments that has made this particular community fight unique for the area.
