UEA study area

Policy LU-8I in the Miami-Dade County Comprehensive Development Master Plan (CDMP) directs the County to study the area depicted on the map below for possible designation as an Urban Expansion Area (UEA).

The UEAs represent areas where the Board of County Commissioners may authorize urban expansion if certain criteria in the CDMP are met, and if there is a demonstrated need for urban development to occur beyond the Urban Development Boundary.

The public is invited to attend one of two upcoming public meetings to receive information and provide input related to the study.

i live in that study area and went to the meeting on monday night. the room was filled with very concerned individuals that also live in the study area. we concluded that developers pay off officials to get them to change the boundary lines. one woman, who said she worked for developers, said they are building expensive homes in opa-locka and liberty city and want to move out the existing low-income residents to urban naranja. enticing them with new apartments and public transportation at the doorstep. i guess this constitutes the “demonstrated need for urban development to occur beyond the Urban Development Boundary.” greedy developers are getting the ok from our officials to build these monstrosities on farm land. in other words, they are destroying the redlands.
