This year's gathering of local leaders focused on how to market our unique community.

Miami-Dade County employees donate leave time to the victims of Orlando Pulse Nightclub attack

The Board of County Commissioners unanimously approved a resolution allowing county employees to donate accrued annual leave to the victims of the Orlando terrorist attack. The donated leave will be converted to cash to support the OneOrlando fund initiated by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. On October 5, 2016 a special recognition took place sending a check for $13,396.06 to the OneOrlando fund.

A Fair Share for South Dade

Commissioner Levine Cava partnered with Commissioner Moss to host the inaugural South Dade Solutions Summit: business, community and government leaders outlined a success plan for South Dade to improve transportation, economic development and quality of life. Recommendations include the County buying local food and products, promotion of "farm to table" dining, transit investments and greater marketing of our region's unique assets. The plan will be our guiding document framing District 8's agenda over the next three years.
