An initiative of Councilmen Tony Lama and Nelson Rodriguez, the Transportation Summit was held in order 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. Town elected officials and staff were joined by the Florida Department of Transportation, Miami-Dade Transit, Miami-Dade Expressway Authority, Miami-Dade County Public Works, Metropolitan Planning Organization, South Florida Commuter Services and the Town's civil/traffic engineering consultants Kimley-Horn and Associates and Corradino and Associates, to brainstorm and discuss possible ways to relieve congestion/mobility issues present in the Town.
Based on the ideas generated at the summit, a list of strategies recommended for the Town to pursue was presented at the October 6 regular Town Council meeting. The recommended strategies were included in the Town’s Strategic Plan, and Town staff was authorized, with the Council’s endorsement, to pursue the presented ideas with responsible outside agencies, as well as make grant requests and recommend appropriations to implement these strategies.
