Miami, FL - Commissioner Audrey M. Edmonson began her monthly walk-though the N.W. 18th Avenue corridor on April 30, 2014 by co-designating N.W. 69 Terrace as “Monroe Street.”  Joined residents and business owners she unveiled the new “old” street names of the NW 18th Avenue corridor from NW 68 to NW 70 Streets in Liberty City.  When the area was originally platted in 1922, the streets bore the names of U.S. Presidents Adams, Monroe, Jefferson, Lincoln and Washington. At the behest of residents, Commissioner Edmonson co-designated the streets with the original presidential names.

Commissioner continued her walk accompanied by members of the Elks, and Miami-Dade County Police, Public Works and Waste Management, and Code Enforcement staff. Commissioner Edmonson's purpose is to vigilantly cite negligent property owners, particularly of vacant lots, who do not cut the grass and allow garbage and debris to be dumped; assist residents whom she meets along the walks with any neighborhood concerns and to instill a sense of ownership and pride in area merchants and residents. Commissioner Edmonson is helped in the clean-up by members of the Miami Service Corps.
