You are invited:

The Miami Downtown Development Authority and the City Miami Planning Department invite you to a public workshop regarding the Miami Comprehensive Neighborhood Plan. Pursuant to State law, the City of Miami is conducting an “evaluation and appraisal” of its comprehensive plan, which serves as a long-range land use policy guide. Planning Department staff will provide information about this process and hear your ideas about Downtown Miami’s most significant planning needs. This is an important opportunity to help shape our City’s future!

When: Monday, December 6, 2010 at 6:00 PM

Where: Miami DDA, 200 S. Biscayne Boulevard, Suite 2929

RSVP: Sarah Ingle, Miami DDA

Additional information:

What is the Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR)?

The Florida Growth Management Act requires Comprehensive Neighborhood Plans throughout the state to be assessed periodically to determine how the plans are working and what areas need updating. The EAR process is not a revision of the zoning ordinance. Revision of the zoning ordinance was recently completed by the adoption of the Miami 21 Code in October of 2009. This assessment process is known as the Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR) and must be completed every 7 years to assess the City’s progress on areas including, but not limited to, Public Works, Capital Improvements, Transportation and Housing. The EAR process allows us to collect valuable information to revise the City’s Comprehensive Neighborhood Plan to better address the City’s needs.

What is the Purpose of this Public Meeting?

Public input is an important component of the evaluation process and is where city planners learn about major issues facing your neighborhoods. Your participation in this process will lead to a thorough evaluation and serve as a base towards updating the Comprehensive Plan to meet the needs of our residents.

Why Should I Participate?

The EAR is your opportunity to share your knowledge and concerns about the City’s needs. This is also an opportunity to learn more about the issues that shape the City’s future and to better understand the planning process.
