Mayor’s 41st Street Committee

Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber creates 41st Street Committee


 Mayor Dan Gelber establishes committee to analyze and improve experiences on 41 Street

 Although 41 Street, also known as Arthur Godfrey Road, is a primary access point to our City and the central boulevard in mid-Beach, it has never been a true town center for our residents.

Candidly, it has been neglected for decades.

This week I empaneled the 41 Street Committee to create a master plan that will help reimagine this important boulevard in ways that I hope will make it more usable to our residents, enhance its aesthetics, and transform it into a true town center in mid-Beach.

The members of the Committee include business and property owners, merchants and interested residents. They are:

  •  Seth Gadinsky, Chair of the Committee
  • Betty Behar
  • Michael Bernstein
  • Yechiel Ciment
  • Francisco Diaz-Rivas
  • Eric Hankin
  • Jerri Herzberg Bassuk
  • Robin Jacobs
  • Kayla Rynor
  • Jeremy Wachtel

 The Committee will work closely with City staff and a professional planner. The Committee will not be responsible for originating all the ideas that will ultimately be implemented.

 That will be your responsibility.

 The Committee will convene workshops in mid-Beach with residents and merchants to develop an approach that revitalizes the street and enhance its amenities. But it will need your input and ideas.

 My belief is that if we can develop true local centers in our City, we can alleviate much of the congestion and enrich our sense of community. Arthur Godfrey Road should be one of those centers.

 Thanks for your interest in our Community.
