With the creation of his "Welcome to the Neighborhood" campaign along with other community initiatives, Miami-Dade County Commissioner Dennis C. Moss, District 9, is determined to shape the cluster of communities within South Miami-Dade into an economically vibrant area for residents to live and work.
Commissioner Moss' hospitality goes beyond laying out the welcome mat for new businesses in his district. "We started the Welcome to the Neighborhood campaign to attract business development in District 9 and to provide business owners with the resources they will need," said Commissioner Moss. "We want to encourage the creation of jobs, maintain the workforce of the community and contribute to Miami-Dade's growing economy. I would like business owners and investors to realize that this is a great place to do business should they decide to invest here."
Recently, Commissioner Moss celebrated the grand opening of two new businesses in the Richmond Heights community: the Subway Restaurant at 11281 SW 152nd Street and Deloris Florist and Gift Shop at 14654 Lincoln Boulevard.
Commissioner Moss' efforts in reaching out to business owners are not exclusive to his district. In fact, last November he joined top business and political leaders in the launching of the local business priority program, "Local Business, Local Jobs," an innovative approach to job creation and business expansion in Miami-Dade County led by the Beacon Council that targets existing businesses.
