Folks, this coming Thurs is a Little Havana community meeting, see below and attached.  Many leaders will be there, including hopefully the City district commissioner.  It will be a great opportunity to spread the word about promoting fine-grain urban neighborhood development — in the heart of Miami’s largest expanse of T4 zoning — and about necessary zoning changes to make smaller sites developable, for example eliminating required parking.  
The Little Havana Merchant Alliance (LHMA), in conjunction with a variety of other local organizations, invites you to the first ever Little Havana Open House.DATE: Thursday, Sept. 5
TIME: 6:30 - 11 pm
PLACE: In the courtyard behind Mansini’s Pizza House 541 SW 12th Ave.

  • MEET local community leaders and organizations working to help Little Havana through projects like making our streets more pedestrian friendly, assisting local small businesses and organizing community events.  We won’t bore you — this is casual networking, but we will have info available about each organization.
  • ENJOY free slice of pizza if you’re one of the first 75 attendees, as well as complimentary refreshments like mojitos, provided thanks to Miami Club Rum.
  • DISCOVER local volunteer opportunities and projects: get involved in local organizations! Do you already belong to a group? Find out what other organizations are working on the same issues, so we can collaborate and partner for a BIGGER IMPACT!
  • LEARN about LHMA’s FREE upcoming workshops for local businesses and entrepreneurs, thanks to a partnership with the Kiwanis of Little Havana.
  • PARTICIPATE in a raffle and, if you want, give a donation to the 6th Street Dance Studio, a nonprofit studio that offers free dance classes for local kids every Friday.
  • VISIT the 6th Street Dance Studio and local art galleries in the “village” around the courtyard.

  • Acción / Little Havana Community Action Committe
