Be a Part of the Budget
County budget hearings will be on September 3rd and 17th at the Stephen P. Clark Center starting at 5:01 p.m. These meetings are open to the public and I strongly urge all our residents to attend the hearings and speak before the Commission about their priorities and concerns.
Community meetings will be held throughout Miami-Dade during the month of August. Residents are encouraged to attend and learn more about the budget process. Members of the community will have the opportunity to ask questions and make suggestions so that resources are allocated based on public participation and information.
2015 Impact Grant Winners!
The District 8 Impact Grant is awarded to community based organizations that have demonstrated a commitment to advocacy, civic engagement, and service. This year, we awarded 13 organizations small grants ranging from $2,500 to $5,000. These organizations provide direct services and have also expanded their reach to impact policy.
While each grant recipient presented a unique project or proposed to tackle a unique issue, they all had to strictly adhere to the overall advocacy and civic engagement component of the District 8 Impact Grant program. The awards totaled $48,000.
Join the Parks for People initiative!
The Parks for People initiative was born after many of our residents reached out to our office with concerns about the state of our parks. We hope to increase short term funding for the next budget cycle and find a longer term sustainable funding source.
A petition was launched by a District 8 resident and I highly encourage you to sign and share it with your friends and family. It takes just a few seconds and will help bring our community together to urge for increased resources for our parks. The goal is to reach 1,000 signatures by July 1st, so please make sure to sign and share!
You can also follow the Parks for People initiative by liking the Facebook page. It is regularly updated with information about our public green spaces, so please like the page and send content you think should be shared!
