Miami Lakes, FL - The Town of Miami Lakes is pleased to announce an interactive Transportation Improvements Map has been added to the Town’s website at www.miamilakes-fl.gov/mobility.
This new map allows users to click on each “pin” that identifies a specific transportation project. A pop up window then appears which provides additional information about the project, as well as links to access the project’s design plans.
Two years ago, Vice-Mayor Tony Lama and Councilman Nelson Rodriguez, initiated a Transportation Summit to bring together the relevant stakeholders and experts of all agencies responsible for transportation to focus intensely on specific problems, while ensuring that all agencies’ actions are strategically coordinated to achieve optimal solutions.
Based on the ideas generated at the summit, a list of strategies recommended for the Town to pursue was incorporated into the Town’s Strategic Plan, and Town staff was authorized, to pursue the presented ideas with responsible outside agencies, as well as seek grant opportunities and legislative appropriations to implement these strategies. Each “pin” on the map indicates a project that derived from the Transportation Summit.
