Miami-Dade Transit and Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Departments, in partnership with Friends of The Underline, held three public meetings to seek public input and feedback on the proposed master plan for The UnderlineThe Underline is a 10-mile long stretch of biking and pedestrian trails and park spaces located beneath the County's Metrorail between the Miami River north of Brickell and Dadeland South stations. The vision for The Underline is to create a linear park that will enhance connectivity, mobility and biking safety for hundreds of thousands of Miami-Dade residents and visitors. Consulting design team James Corner Field Operations led the discussions, providing an overview of the framework plan, demonstration projects and setting priorities from new and existing ideas for the plan. Residents can still provide input with the online survey.

Mayor makes final visit to Tallahassee

Last week, I made my final visit to Tallahassee. The Florida Cabinet unanimously approved the land acquisition for the American Dream Miami project. If ultimately approved, the project will be the Country's largest mall and entertainment center with the potential to attracting millions of visitors from around the world. The development company, Triple Five, projects 25,000 permanent jobs and 25,000 construction jobs will be created. I look forward to this worthy project.
