Miami Lakes, FL -  On Saturday, January 25th, over 200 elected officials, friends and family gathered to formally unveil the designation of the Roberto Alonso Community Center at Royal Oaks Park.

"It was great to see the community come together to celebrate the legacy of Vice Mayor Roberto Alonso," said Mayor Wayne Slaton. "I had the privilege of working alongside this great community leader and I am proud that his legacy will continue to live on in Royal Oaks, a place he loved and called home for many years".

Mr. Alonso, a leader of the Royal Oaks community for many years, eventually represented Royal Oaks in the movement to incorporate the Town. Elected to the founding Council in 2001, he served as the Town's first Vice Mayor. After being re-elected to a second term, he served his community as an elected official for eight years with a passion.

Mr. Alonso was a man of "action", focusing on enhancing Town-wide public safety. He was a strong advocate of neighborhood community policing, and was instrumental in the development of infrastructure on the West side of Town; lobbying for the Fire Rescue Station and in the procurement of additional land for new parks. A strong advocate for the planning and development of the Royal Oaks Park and Community Center.

Mr. Roberto Alonso's memory will forever be honored with the designation of the Community Center at Royal Oaks Park, "The Roberto Alonso Community Center".
