These projects will evolve as the city updates the Stormwater Master Plan, ensuring projects are based on the very latest engineering and the needs of Miami residents over the next two decades. Projects will be chosen by a Citizens Oversight Board and the City Commission in a process open and transparent to the public, and trackable on the city’s website.

In the same way that every homeowner knows that proactively fixing a small leak is much cheaper than waiting until there is full-blown water damage, tackling these projects now is less expensive that delaying as flooding damage increases and costs go up.
We can now take advantage of low interest rates in the overall market and the city’s best bond rating in 30 years. For just $125 on average per year, citizens will get better roads, parks, cultural facilities, flood prevention, and more affordable housing.
