The Real Deal Miami

Delay on Miami zoning changes

May 13, 2011 10:13AM

The Miami City Commission’s consideration of a new, pedestrian-friendly
zoning code in Miami has been delayed for several months as its
proponents make changes to the proposal. With the support of Mayor Tomas
Regalado, Miami Neighborhoods United has proposed even amendments to
the Miami 21 code, among which are measures which would lower allowable
building rights in some medium-density districts, along with giving
residents the right to challenge developer approvals. One provision that
has attracted controversy would cut back the effective life of
development permits on which no construction has taken place. [Miami
