“At the regular Council meeting on January 17, 2017, the Village Council approved a resolution to place a bond referendum on the April 2017 election ballot for an amount up to $20 million dollars to secure funding for a new Community Center. Many residents are in agreement of the need for a new Community Center, but voiced concerns during the meeting. As a brief background, the Village Council hired Ballard King and Associates in 2015 to prepare a proposal for a new Community Center based on conversations with staff and user groups, the survey results and the plan to replace the existing Community Center and Field House. It is an accumulation of input from various sources. NO FINAL DECISIONS have been made on the proposal which includes the size, design, construction and cost. The study was conducted to see if the project was feasible and if so, the cost estimate in order to establish funding. In order to provide accessible information to the public, we have established a button on our website www.miamishoresvillage.com that you can click on to be directed to a webpage of pertinent information regarding the new Community Center. Viewers will find the presentation/study prepared by Ballard King and Associates, including cost estimates and design plans as requested by the Village Council. If the bond referendum passes on April 11, 2017, there will be ample time for residents to provide input, feedback and requests before a final decision is made. This project is a work in progress and the appropriate steps have been and will be taken to ensure that the process follows the applicable steps for such an endeavor. We will update the webpage as information becomes available. If you have any questions regarding the proposal, please contact Interim Recreation Director, Angela Dorney at 305-758-8103.”

I can’t believe it has already been two years since I embarked on my first campaign running for a seat on the Miami Shores Village Council. A lot has changed in the last two years – but not my passion for serving our village.
