Vote NO on Agenda Item 2A
A message sent along with our friends in the Hold the Line Coalition.
On Thursday, January 13, Commissioners on the County Infrastructure, Operations, and Innovation Committee were to consider Agenda Item 2A, sponsored by Commissioner Diaz, directing staff to amend the Comprehensive Development Master Plan.
We asked the Commissioners to vote NO on this item. That’s because this amendment would likely require moving the Urban Development Boundary line. This would lead to urban sprawl in areas that are crucial to leave undeveloped as these green spaces protect our drinking water, Biscayne Bay, and Miami-Dade's farming community. However, only one of the six Commissioners actually showed up to the meeting. With no quorum, no vote was held. Item 2A will come up for discussion again (likely on February 10th), and in the meantime, we can all contact the commissioners on the Committee to tell them this Resolution is a bad idea.
The future of Miami depends on ensuring that we have enough green space to support our community’s needs. For decades, Miami-Dade has protected a boundary line dividing developed areas from the Everglades, called the “Urban Development Boundary (UDB).” This UDB has been one of our best tools to protect this valuable habitat, our drinking water, and Biscayne Bay from urban sprawl. To save Biscayne Bay, we must Hold The Line!
