Commissioner Bruno A. Barreiro returns parking spaces to residents near Marlins Park

(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 
In an effort to alleviate parking concerns for residents living on NW 3rd Street between NW 14th Avenue and NW 16th Avenue near the newly-constructed Marlins Park, Commissioner Bruno A. Barreiro presented a resolution to restripe the street strictly for residential parking. The item was passed unanimously at the April 3rd Miami-Dade Commission meeting.

Commissioner Barreiro has been working closely on this issue with City of Miami Commissioner Frank Carollo to find a solution for residents who lost their on-street parking on NW 3rd Street as a result of the new stadium.

“I urge the Miami Marlins to cover the cost to restripe the street and return parking spaces back to the residents. However, should an agreement not be reached, I commit to utilizing my District 5 PTP funds to assist in reinstating their parking spaces,” said Commissioner Barreiro.

For more information, please contact Commissioner Barreiro’s office at 305-643-8525.
