Miami-Dade Commission meeting comes to South Miami-Dade on May 21st


(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- As part of her two-year term leading the Miami-Dade County Commission, Chairwoman Rebeca Sosa hopes to provide access to residents of all areas within the County by hosting the first offsite Commission meeting on Tuesday, May 21, 2013, at 8:30 a.m. at the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center.

Typically, Commission meetings are held at the Commission Chamber of the Stephen P. Clark Center in Downtown Miami, but Chairwoman Sosa has a mission to bring meetings to other areas of the community, such as South Dade, North Dade and possibly university campuses. The aim is to bring government closer to residents.

The South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center opened its doors on October 1, 2011 and is managed by the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and is funded with the support from the office of the Miami-Dade County Mayor and the Board of County Commissioners. The center provides a world-class, multi-disciplinary cultural venue and community gathering place in the southern part of Miami-Dade County and emphasizes on educational and outreach activities in partnership with community groups.

The South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center is located off the Florida Turnpike - exit 11 heading south and exit 12 heading north - at 10950 SW 211 Street, Cutler Bay, Florida 33189.  For more information, please visit or call the office of Chairwoman Sosa at 305-375-4696.
