For you ‘Hold the Line’ advocates, come down to the Main Library Auditorium this Thursday to let the EPA know what you think of the UDB policy in Dade County. They are here (at the invitation of the Commission) to review the policy and provide comments on how to encourage smart growth and infill development. Don’t miss this opportunity - the next round of UDB battles will be soon upon us, and we need all the ammo we can get!

One Response to EPA To Review County UDB Policy

  1. Rog in Miami Gardens says:

    I am at a total loss of understanding how these workshops can possibly be “open to the public” as is often touted when most of the “public” works? How are residents like me supposed to take advantage of this opportunity when we have full-time jobs? Am I expected to ask for time off, merely days in advance? I’m terribly upset about this.
