The Real Deal Miami

Growth regulations see vote

November 19, 2008 11:46AM

The Miami Planning Advisory Board will vote on the proposed Miami 21 zoning maps, documents that will
regulate new construction and development for the city’s south, west and
northwest areas. The Miami 21 code, a major goal of Mayor Manny Diaz’s
administration, seeks to scrap the existing patchwork of zoning regulations in
favor of a simpler, more cohesive plan that backers say will produce a more
urban, pedestrian-friendly city, with greater protections for residential
neighborhoods and less development out of scale with the surrounding neighborhood.
