2013 Transportation Summit
We would thank all of you who participated in the 2013 Transportation Summit on June 6, 2013, at the Chapman Conference Center on the Wolfson Campus of Miami-Dade College. We particularly appreciate the close collaboration with Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez, the Board of County Commissioners, Miami-Dade County, Miami-Dade College, the Florida International University Metropolitan Center, the showcase exhibitors, moderators and panelists, and all our municipal and transportation partners.
We want to thank you on behalf of the Citizens’ Independent Transportation Trust, for making the Summit a resounding success. The goal of this event was to bring together stakeholders, agencies, the community and national experts to focus on the future of transportation in Miami-Dade County and begin the discussion of the next major transportation projects in our community. The overwhelmingly positive feedback – such as public statements by civic leaders and elected officials as well as press coverage – lets us know we achieved this high aspiration.
Mayor Gimenez emphasized in his Keynote Address that this is the time to come together and begin building consensus toward realizing our community’s vision for the future.
As a start, this Summit website is being updated with additional information on the Speakers, Panelists, Moderators and Showcase Exhibitors. The CITT Update and other presentations also have been posted. Our partners at the FIU Metropolitan Center are diligently at work on the Report on Proceedings, a compendium of the ideas and themes identified throughout the day. In addition, the Trust is working to put together a follow-up event with this report to the community, and we welcome your thoughts and ideas. You can provide input at our website click here.
Again, we thank you and look forward to Visioning the Future of Miami-Dade County’s Public Transportation.
With Best Regards,
Paul J. Schwiep, Esq., Chairman
Charles D. Scurr, Executive Director
The Summit featured a Community Visioning Forum to engage the public and obtain public input on the future of transit development in Miami-Dade County. This event marks the “first step” in the process of engaging stakeholders and the community in charting the course of future transit development.
It included breakout sessions on Innovative Financing, Mode Technology, Public-Private Partnerships, Corridor Development and culminating with an interactive Community Visioning Forum.
Join Miami-Dade County officials and fellow citizens in building momentum towards a comprehensive and coordinated public transit system.
