On Nov. 30, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez; Deputy Mayor Alina T. Hudak (and Director of the Miami-Dade County Public Works and Waste Management Department); Commissioner Bruno Barreiro, District 5; and Alice N. Bravo, P.E., Director of Miami-Dade Transit;  came together with other County officials, contractors and residents to commemorate the completion of the Miami Avenue Bridge Improvement Project and the re-opening of the bridge.

Miami Beckham United

Thursday, Dec. 3, I signed a non-binding Letter of Intent with Miami Beckham United. The document confirms the group's intention to negotiate the purchasing of 2.8 acres of land owned by Miami-Dade County and managed  by the Water and Sewer Department, located on NW 6th Street and NW 6th Avenue in the Overtown community and near downtown Miami.

After an appraisal is completed and if the sale is approved by our Board of County Commissioners, Miami Beckham United would pay fair market value for the property. The purchase is part of Miami Beckham United's effort to assemble land to eventually construct a privately-financed, privately-owned Major League Soccer stadium in the urban core of our world-class community. The group has another six acres of private land under contract.

I am hopeful that the transaction can be finalized and presented to the Board of County Commissioners for approval just after the new year. Read my statement on Miami Beckham United.
