Miami Lakes, FL - The Town of Miami Lakes, the Chairman of Neat Streets Miami, Miami-Dade County Commissioner Dennis C. Moss, District 9 and the Neat Streets Miami Board, are pleased to inform that the Town has been awarded a 2017 Street Tree Matching Grant.
Overall, 13 grants were awarded to those communities who demonstrated the greatest benefits for residents, and the Town is thrilled to be a partner in growing Miami-Dade’s tree canopy. The grant will assist in funding the Miami Lakes West Lakes Reforestation Project Phase I, to create beautiful, green corridors. Studies show that the trees contribute significantly to the environment, human health, energy savings, and quality of life.
“Our tree canopy is not only beautiful but it also improves Miami Lakers property values and quality of life,” stated Mayor Manny Cid. “Beautification is one of the most important aspects of our local government as it is embedded in our strategic and beautification master plans.”
