The City of Miami Gardens has filed an application with the Board of County Commissioners for the annexation of an unincorporated area, east of the current city limits, known as Ives Estate CDP, in northern Miami-Dade County.
The subject area is bordered by I-95 on the east and south, NE 183rd Street on the North and the City of Miami Gardens to the west. Furthermore, the area proposed for annexation consist of 134.41 acres of lands and is zoned for Industrial use. This makes the proposed annexation ideal as it meets the development goals of the City to expand its industrial-use base, while transforming from a traditional bedroom community to a dynamic, all-encompassing urban landscape that provides diverse opportunities for its residents to live, work and play.
It is believed this proposed annexation will help to strengthen the City’s fiscal position and simultaneously provide property owners with a predictable level of service. With the expansion of our Police Department’s technological capabilities and more specifically, the Real Time Crime Center, as well as the various roadway maintenance equipment and initiatives recently developed within our Public Works Department, our City is poised to provide this business community with a greater level of efficient service.
