In another event staged to highlight benefits of the Sun Life Stadium renovation plan, the Miami Dolphins announced on Tuesday that they are partnering with an organization called Operation 305 to ensure that at least 70 percent of jobs from the project go to Miami-Dade County residents.
The team held a news conference at the stadium, inviting representatives from the Miami-Dade Chamber of Commerce, the Latin American Business Association, and South Florida Workforce to take part. All of those groups support the stadium makeover plan.
The Dolphins estimate the construction project will provide at least 4,000 jobs for up to 24 months, until the project is done.
