NORTH MIAMI OFFICIALS TO TOUR BRIGHTLINE STATION AND MEET WITH WEST PALM BEACH OFFICIALS

North Miami, FL – 5/24/2018

North Miami elected officials and City administration will travel on Brightline, the new express train service, on Friday, May 25th  to meet with Brightline representatives and West Palm Beach officials. City officials will arrive at the Miami Central Brightline station at approximately 8 a.m. for a tour of the station and board the train to West Palm Beach.    

“Creating a high-capacity passenger rail stop on NE 123 Street gives the city of North Miami a competitive advantage and drives new possibilities” said North Miami Mayor, Dr. Smith Joseph. “A future transit station in our City will serve as a catalyst to further redevelop and activate the heart of North Miami's downtown corridor.”  

The purpose of this travel and subsequent meeting is to discuss strategies for successful implementation of a Transit Oriented Development (TOD). Given the proximity of North Miami’s planned TOD and downtown, City staff recognize the value in meeting to discuss best practices with neighboring cities.  

The North Miami Community Redevelopment Agency authorized the creation of a North Miami Mobility Hub & TOD Strategic Plan on November 14, 2017, in the area surrounding the intersection of the Florida East Coast (FEC) railway and NE 123rd Street. The plan will provide the community with a safe and affordable transportation option connected to pedestrian-friendly development and bring multiple stakeholders to help shape the future of North Miami’s urban core.   

The second workshop is scheduled for 7 p.m., Thursday, May 24th inside the City’s Council Chambers, located at 776 NE 125 Street. For additional information, visit www.NorthMiamiFuture.com/TOD.
