Miami-Dade County Commissioner Audrey Edmonson encouraged by CRA bond approval


Miami, FL – “I am extremely encouraged by Southeast Overtown/Park West CRA’s (CRA) bold move of approving a minimum $43.5 million bond issuance.  This approval ensures that some of the long-awaited projects will begin to move in Overtown. I would like to see that all of the approved projects begin and are completed. That is what I have been fighting for all along.

I have consulted the County Attorney with an eye toward removing any and all obstacles that may hinder further progress in the Overtown community. I am hopeful that this step will pave the way for the CRA to issue $60 million in bonds. These funds will promote the immediate launch of job creation and economic development in our community. I am confident that all that are involved share the same sentiment.”
