AIM: Actively Investing in Miami-Dade

The Actively Investing in Miami-Dade (AIM) Initiative seeks to encourage our best and brightest to join a growing class of young professionals who are choosing to make Miami-Dade County their home, now and in the future.


Bike305 is a collaborative initiative of Miami-Dade mayors forged by Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez that encourages residents to ride and walk the more than 27-mile stretch of paved trails along the eastern edge of the County.

Boating Safety

Per the United States Coast Guard data, someone is injured or killed in a boating accident every 2 and a half hours. Similar to learning the “rules of the road,” it is important to be aware of certifications needed to be a safe boater.
