Hold Miami-Dade County’s Urban Development Boundary Line

Protect the Everglades and our Drinking Water

For decades, Miami-Dade has protected a bright line to stop urban sprawl into the Everglades, called the “Urban Development Boundary”; this is one of our best tools to protect the Everglades and our drinking water. 

After a full day of hearing public comments, listening to presentations, asking questions, and holding discussions, the County Commission voted 6-6 on a motion to deny the application for the ~800-acre industrial development proposed for outside the Urban Development Boundary.

Although the project is not currently moving forward, it was also not completely stopped.

Another vote is scheduled to take place on June 1 at 8 AM.

Building this massive project represents a significant threat to Biscayne Bay, the Everglades, our agricultural community, and our drinking water. The Commissioners who voted “no” to moving the line need to hear from the community that we applaud their decision to stand up for resources in the public trust.
