County Commission approves Commissioner Bovo’s ordinance increasing transit oriented developments along SMART Plan Corridors
MIAMI-DADE – The Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners on Jan. 24 adopted a CDMP ordinance that increases the density along the Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit (SMART) Plan corridors in unincorporated areas. The increased density includes new land use policies that support the development of transit oriented development. These policies are intended to promote the use of transit for transportation purposes.
“I thank my colleagues for their support of this important ordinance for the future of transit and for the development of our County,” said Commissioner Bovo. “This ordinance places the proper level of development closest to the transit corridors and removes pressure from the urban development boundary (UBD), which achieves increased ridership and protection of our environmentally sensitive and agricultural lands. The increased ridership along these corridors will further incentivize the state and federal government to participate in funding our transit projects.”
