Miami-Dade County is advertising for a new Director of Planning and Zoning.

Let’s hope a true visionary is hired to fill the position, because county planning efforts have been misguided for decades. We need a leader who isn’t afraid to take risks and make unpopular decisions. We need someone who is very knowledgeable about smart growth and planning, especially with cutting edge research. We need someone who will plant the seeds for a cultural revolution here in Miami-Dade that will forever change the way we live and build cities.

This is truly a pivotal moment in our history, and it is critical that our next planning and zoning director steers Miami-Dade County along a sustainable growth paradigm that sets a generational precedent for smart growth.
