Summary of Accomplishments:
1. Proposed Light Rail: Conducted first major public form educating residents about this initiative. City Commission’s final decision was almost identical to position advocated by Miami Beach United
2. Convention Center Hotel: After the referendum failed, we ensured that resident voiced were heard by successfully advocating for a Resident Panel to create the path forward
3. MBU held educational and entertaining events and forums on sustainability and sea level rise; the Faena Arts District and more.
In addition, MBU has sponsored a series of informational forums open to all residents of Miami Beach, City Officials and other interested parties. The subject matter included “What Makes a World Class City,” “Sea Rise” and “Residents Right to Know.”
