Miracle Mile & Restaurant Row Streetscape
The BID Board of Directors passed a resolution earlier this year to form an expert advisory committee to include design professionals, urban planners, engineers, a transportation professional, retail expert, and merchants to make a solid recommendation as to which sidewalk/parking scenario is best for Miracle Mile and best for the continued success of commercial owners, but with a broader vision consistent with the walkable features recommended in the 2002 Downtown Charette.
The committee is being supported by an independent facilitator/moderator, Dr. Chuck Bohl, Director of the Knight Program in Community Building in the University of Miami’s School of Architecture, together with a team of architects who will be providing design and drafting support to develop actual drawings consistent with the committee’s vision. After some working meetings in the summer to gather maps, data and information, the committee conducted a public session on September 8th, 2008, so that merchants, owners and residents could provide input into the process. Over 60 people attended the meeting and provided feedback to the committee.
The BID is seeking public comments to the design alternatives contained in the presentation available on this page. Please visit and leave your comments, email us at [email protected] or call us at (305) 569-0311.
