Vice Chairwoman Edmonson meets with northwest Miami-Dade residents in her district.

On February 28, 2012, Vice Chairwoman Audrey M. Edmonson led a community outreach team through the Liberty City corridor of N.W. 18th Avenue from 62 to 71 streets in Miami.  Vice Chairwoman Edmonson spoke with residents and business owners in order to get to know this new part of her District 3.  Along the way, overgrown lots were cleaned, homeless persons assisted, trouble spots were identified and residents were introduced to Police, Code Enforcement, Solid Waste and Public Works personnel.  The Vice Chairwoman aims to conduct these community walking tours on a monthly basis and again will be joined by the Miami-Dade County Police, Solid Waste and Public Works departments; the Miami Service Corps and the City of Miami Homeless Outreach Team.
