MIAMI LAKES, Florida, April 19, 2016 – The Town of Miami Lakes is pleased to announce the release of its Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2014-15 (October 1, 2014 to September 30, 2015) which outlines the accomplishments over the last year and the status of all major areas of responsibility.
“The past year has been full of accomplishments thanks to the Town’s diligent staff, elected officials and residents,” said Town Manager Alex Rey.
Over the last 50 years, Miami Lakes has progressed from a dream on paper into reality. This vibrant community is nationally recognized as one of the best examples of unique and innovative town planning. The Town of Miami Lakes’ residential component is essentially built out with only a handful of parcels that are undeveloped; shifting our focus on economic development and redevelopment. In September of 2015, the Town approved zoning changes to allow for the Miami Lakes Town Center District which has been envisioned since the original master plan for the Town as a walkable, mixed‐use area similar to a traditional small town “Main Street”.
FY 14-15 highlights include:
Opening of Fire Station 64
Adoption of the Greenways and Trails Master Plan
Completion of the NW 170th Street Greenway PH‐II Project
Launching of the Lakes Life mobile app
Securing a total of $1,609,329 in grants
Establishment of a “Town Center District”
Hosted a Transportation Summit to address traffic issues in the Town
