MIAMI BEACH TRANSPORTATION PLAN
The Miami Beach Transportation Plan is the development of a Transportation Element (TE) as part of the Miami Beach Comprehensive Plan. The TE will build from information and data contained in existing multimodal plans; such as the Municipal Mobility Plan, the Coastal Communities Transportation Master Plan and Transit Study, and the Atlantic Greenway Network Master Plan.
In general, the objectives of the TE are to consider roadway, pedestrian and bicycle plans, planned improvements including local street extensions and connections, needed sidewalks, pedestrian crossings, and bicycle facility improvements; local street connectivity plans, street design standards, functional classification, access management standards, financing strategies, and amendments to implementing ordinances; analysis of growth scenarios for transportation impacts, and development of recommended mitigation measures.
There will be three public meetings for this project. The first was a public workshop held on October 30, 2008 at 6:30pm at the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens. The next public meeting is an open house, and it is scheduled for February 5, 2009 at 6:30pm the North Shore Youth Center. The third public workshop will be combined with the Planning Board as a special meeting and is tentatively scheduled in April 2009.
