Miami Gardens is edging closer to gaining some control over zoning and permitting in the area surrounding the Miami Dolphins football stadium, home of the 2020 Super Bowl.

Miami-Dade County commissioners agreed June 7 to the terms of the settlement of a suit Miami Gardens filed against the county in 2014 over its jurisdiction over the stadium’s surroundings.

Parties to the settlement agreement include Miami Gardens, Miami-Dade County and several owners of property around the stadium.

The settlement of the lawsuit allows shared city and county responsibility for controlling construction in the stadium and around it.

Miami Gardens residents will vote August 30 on new charter language with respect to stadium-area zoning and permitting in concert with the county.

Under the settlement, the county also will transfer 10 parcels of land to Miami Gardens for $1 each, including two parcels the county acquired with funds from Community Development Block Grants, at 14101 Northwest 18 Avenue and 15880 Northwest 27 Avenue. [Miami New Times] — Mike Seemuth
