The city of Coral Gables is moving forward with annexing the unincorporated neighborhood of Little Gables, according to the Miami New Times.

The roughly 205-acre community, which lies just south of Southwest Eighth Street and east of Granada Boulevard, has about 90 trailer park homes in the Gables Trailer Park community.

City officials recently discussed replacing the trailer park at 825 Southwest 44th Avenue, across from Graceland Memorial Park, with upscale development that resembles the city.  The park is home to mostly seniors, the New Times reported.

Urban planning firm Dover Kohl & Partners was hired by the city to consult on plans to annex and redevelop Little Gables. The firm is also behind the revitalization efforts of the North Beach neighborhood, where older buildings will be redeveloped.

Coral Gables commissioners secured approval from 24 percent of registered voters in Little Gables, which is more than the required 20 percent. Miami-Dade County would have to approve the annexation application for the process to move forward.

City officials are also considering annexing the neighborhoods of High Pines and Ponce Davis. [Miami New Times] – Amanda Rabines
