Miami Gardens and Miami-Dade County have moved towards an agreement regarding building control and zoning at Sun Life Stadium.

The city hopes to encourage the development of hotels, shops and restaurants in the area, and the County Commission agreed in principle to allow Miami Gardens to control the building and zoning in the stadium area, according to the Miami Herald. However, no official deal was made.

Miami Gardens Mayor Oliver Gilbert said the city does not intend to interfere with county’s modernization plan.

“The residents feel its elected officials have made enough concessions at this point,” Gilbert said. “We will compromise but it has to be something that benefits the city and its residents.”

In July, the city sued the county for the rights to building and zoning.

The city said it plans to reach an agreement, but Gilbert said that the city will proceed with the lawsuit if the negotiations don’t work out.

“We are willing to compromise and work things out, and if we can’t work things out, then a judge will have to tell us that,” Gilbert said. [Miami Herald] – Christopher Cameron
