Meetings

Miami-Dade Public Housing and Community Development (PHCD) and its developer, McCormack Baron Salazar and co-developer Reliance Housing Foundation and their consultant, Urban Strategies (the development team) re-initiated Community Meetings, Steering Committee Meetings and Sub-Committee meetings to further develop a collaborative process for the redevelopment of the new Scott/Carver Community between former Scott/Carver residents, stakeholders, other participants, and the development team.

The purpose of these meetings was for the development team to advise the former Scott/Carver residents, stakeholders, and other meeting attendees, of the progress being made on various aspects of the redevelopment effort. Additionally, they also served for meeting participants to provide their input to the development team, on the various aspects of the project. Development team personnel were also available after meetings, and during regular office hours, to discuss other issues which were not specific to the meeting agenda.

PHCD and Urban Strategies facilitated meetings for the Steering Committee Meetings, which is comprised of 50% former Scott/Carver residents and 50% community stakeholders. The Steering Committee and its subcommittees: Re-occupancy, CSS, Outreach and Design, have provided input on key topics/issues relevant to the Revitalization Plan, service needs and opportunities for residents.

All meetings have been held at the Merline Matthews Community Center (MMCC) located at 5200 NW 22 Avenue, Miami, Florida 33142.
