The Real Deal Miami

End is near for Miami-Dade’s Islandia

December 06, 2011 03:44PM

The city of Islandia in Miami-Dade County will soon disappear off the
map, following a move to abolish the city by a Miami-Dade County
Commission. The reason? It has just six residents who live in five
houses. Islandia, once a potential development site whose plans were
shut down after the establishment of Biscayne National Park, was founded
in 1951, but Miami-Dade County now calls it “a city on paper only.” The
city is located on Totten Key south of Elliott Key. [SFBJ]
