Pelican Harbor Marina Boat Ramp Parking Lot Construction Project
The Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department is embarking on a beautification project at the Pelican Harbor Marina Boat Ramp Parking Lot located on the south side of 1275 NE 79th St, Miami, FL 33138. The department anticipates a construction start date of September 2018 and the project is estimated to be completed by the Fall of 2019. The project will be executed in three (3) phases so that the boat ramp remains open at all times with approximately 40 parking spaces available to patrons. This project includes renovating the existing parking lot and creating a new layout to improve traffic flow. There will be a new right-turn lane eastbound into the main entrance, a new 8-foot-wide pedestrian walkway, new lighting and landscaping, new drainage swales and catch basins. The existing asphalt will be removed and will be re-graded, resurfaced and restriped. For more information on this construction project, go to the Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department website.

Help reduce Flooding...Keep Streets and Storm Drains Clean
The heavy rains that recently impacted Miami-Dade County demonstrate of keeping storm drains clear from debris. Miami-Dade County's Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW), with the assistance of other County Departments and Miami-Dade County Commissioner Sally Heyman, District 4, have launched a public education campaign to remind landscapers and residents that they shouldn't blow grass clippings onto the streets and into the storm drainage system.
Forget the repairs, Miami-Dade needs a new courthouse
The courthouse was constructed from 1925 through 1928, when Model Ts rumbled up Flagler Street and Dade County had a population of under 43,000. Today, our county’s population is more than 2.6 million, and more than 1 million people visit the courthouse annually, including 65,000 citizens called for jury duty, people using the law library and thousands of lawyers, litigants and witnesses.
It is time to face reality and build a properly sized courthouse suited for modern times rather than the times of the Model T.
