Crime, new development raise concerns for residents in North Miami-Dade County


(MIAMI, FL) – It was standing room only as Miami-Dade County Commissioner Barbara J. Jordan held her second in a series of three community meetings at the North Dade Regional Library in Miami Gardens. Residents on the east side of District 1 who wanted to voice their opinion about a new development coming on line attended Commissioner Jordan’s third and final community meeting at Dr. Michael Krop Senior High School.

“Community meetings are a necessity,” said Commissioner Jordan. “When you give residents an opportunity to voice their concerns, that is how neighborhoods improve. If I don’t know about issues that impact residents, I can’t effectively address their situation.”

Also on hand to answer questions were representatives from the Mayor’s Office, Water and Sewer, Transit, Regulatory and Economic Resources, Waste Management, Parks and Recreation, Fire Rescue, and Police. Commissioner Jordan also responded to questions regarding Miami Ocean Studios, an upcoming film studio slated to open on a portion of the Landmark property in Northwest Miami-Dade County.

“On occasion, I am able to accommodate everyone in District 1 by holding teletown hall meetings,” said Commissioner Jordan. “That effort allows me to give homebound residents an opportunity to participate in the meeting as well.”
