Small Area Studies

Community Planning staff are responsible for initiating and carrying out Small Area Studies. The tool that the Department has chosen to conduct these studies is known as the charrette process. A charrette is an intensive, public planning workshop that seeks the consensus of all the stakeholders of the subject area and that takes place over a week. Through the charrette process, the Department seeks to develop the community's vision for its growth and future development.

Bird Road Corridor Study

Over the last few years, County staff has been holding a series of public events as part of the Bird Road Corridor Study. The goal of this planning process is to develop a shared long-term vision for this major East/West corridor that is pedestrian friendly, visually cohesive, commercially vibrant and creates a unique identity for Bird Road.

Coral Villa Estates Area Study

This charrette process began with Miami-Dade County Commissioner Rebeca Sosa sponsoring a resolution requesting a charrette planning study for the Coral Villa Estates area within Commission District 6. The Coral Villa Estates area is generally located south of Coral Way (SW 24th Street), east of Ludlam Road (SW 67th Avenue), north of the Coral Gables canal and west of SW 63rd Avenue.

Ludlam Trail Corridor

The Ludlam Trail Corridor consists of the 6.2-mile long Florida East Coast railroad corridor from Blue Lagoon to State Road 878. Public charrettes have been held in County Commission Districts 6 and 7, which encompasses the corridor.

Land Use Planning & Transit Study - NW 215th Street and NW 27th Avenue

The Urban Design Center within the Miami-Dade Regulatory and Economic Resources Department met and worked with members of the County’s Citizen’s Independent Transportation Trust, Miami-Dade Transit, the City of Miami Gardens and residents of Miami Gardens to develop a shared long-term Transit-Oriented Development vision for a parcel of County owned land at NW 215th Street and NW 27th Avenue in the City of Miami Gardens.

West Kendall Corridor Study

In May 2013, the Board of County Commissioners approved a Charrette and West Kendall Corridor Study Area, which focuses on Kendall Drive between SW 137th and SW 177 Avenues. This study will provide an opportunity for land owners, business owners, area residents and local elected officials to work together towards a vision for the future of West Kendall.
