Statement from Mayor Gimenez on safety concerns regarding the future stadium for Miami Beckham United

MIAMI (June 09, 2017)

As the former Manager and Fire Chief of the City of Miami, I understand the concerns that have been expressed regarding the providing of public safety services at the future stadium for Miami Beckham United's professional soccer franchise. I commit to working with County Commissioners Audrey Edmonson and Jose "Pepe" Diaz, and the city administration to ensure that the concerns are addressed when Miami Beckham United applies for zoning changes next year. Securing Major League Soccer in Miami-Dade County will benefit our entire community and I look forward to working with everyone involved.
