From the Miami River Commission and the Center for Communities by Design: A team of national experts will be conducting a community-wide event on the future of the Miami River Corridor from June 5-9, 2010. The 5-day charrette process will include physical tours of the corridor, public workshops and focus groups to solicit the input of citizens and stakeholders, and a series of design studios that will culminate in a public presentation to the community with a formal report including key recommendations and strategies for the river corridor.
On June 7th, the national team will be hosting several stakeholder dialogues and a community workshop at the Hyatt, 400 SE 2nd Avenue. On June 9th, the team will present its findings in a public presentation to the community (6:00 p.m. at the Hyatt), and will deliver a formal report that includes its observations and key recommendations.
Opportunities along the corridor include the potential development and economic impact of the Miami Intermodal Center, marine industrial businesses, the development of the new Florida Marlin’s stadium, and other redevelopment and revitalization opportunities that might enhance livability in the area and provide additional amenities, such as the Miami River Greenway, to local residents and preserve historic neighborhoods.
