Miami-Dade County Plans Economic Impact Study for GreenLink

Miami-Dade County Plans Economic Impact Study for GreenLink | Miami Business News | Scoop.it
GreenLink, a new 10-mile stretch of linear park and “Green” space, is receiving help from the University of Miami and other authorities. This fall, UM School of Architecture students will team with a coalition of Miami-Dad Dept. of Economic Resources, and Urban4M to launch a study on the economic impact of the project. In addition to spreading awareness for the new project, the economic impact study is also expected to provide insight on how the linear park can be constructed to provide the greatest possible economic returns to the County. One such return is the improvement of property value surrounding the park. In New York City and Atlanta, for example, the creation of similar eco-conscious linear parks translated to an increase in value for adjacent properties.

Governments battle to control Dolphins stadium - Miami Today

Governments battle to control Dolphins stadium - Miami Today | Miami Business News | Scoop.it

At the time, it was agreed that Miami-Dade County would retain control over zoning and permitting of Sun Life Stadium, the home of the Miami Dolphins and Miami Hurricanes. It has been alleged that zoning and permitting rights were to be transferred to the City of Miami Gardens in 2012, an interpretation of the city’s charter that has led the city to take legal action against the county. “On Sept. 3rd, the City gained yardage— but scored no touchdown,” reports Lidia Dinkova for Miami Today, highlighting the county’s concession to the city that allows them to issue building permits for lands surrounding the stadium. “I think it’s progress, but we are not where we would like to be,” says Mayor Gilbert.
