"The moment many of us have anticipated for several years is here: two public kickoff meetings on March 14 and 16 that will begin a year-long process to develop a master plan for the five-mile Commodore Trail corridor.

Both public meetings will begin at 6 p.m. and cover the same content, enabling residents and community members along the length of the Commodore Trail to get a glimpse of the planning and community engagement activities to come."

The City of Miami, in partnership with Miami Dade County, the City of Coral Gables and the Friends of the Commodore Trail, is working on the design of the master plan to improve the Commodore Trail, a five-mile trail that provides non-motorized connectivity to bicycles and pedestrians to a beautiful corridor for fitness and enjoyment. Join us to learn about the project master plan objectives and to share your valuable input!"

"Creating a master plan is a critical step in upgrading and completing the Commodore Trail to make it safer and more convenient for walking, biking, and running. Once fully implemented, the trail will provide a safe connection from the Old Cutler Trail in the south to the Rickenbacker Trail and the Underline in the north. Developing a master plan with broad public input is a necessary precursor for specific improvement projects along the length of the trail.

The presentations at both public meetings will provide basic information about the Commodore Trail—exactly where it’s located, the different segments that will be included in the master planning process, and photos of some of the challenges facing the planners and the community. Parts of the trail are dangerous and incomplete. Developing creative solutions will be central to the Master Plan.

At these meetings, you’ll also have the opportunity to provide feedback to the city and its consultants about challenges you’ve faced when using the trail and, most important, what your future vision is for the entire Commodore Trail corridor.

The master planning process is being led by the City of Miami, Miami-Dade County, and the City of Coral Gables. Friends of the Commodore Trail will continue to be a key partner. Dover Kohl & Partners, which has played a central role in the design of the Ludlam Trail, will be responsible for the overall master plan design, together with Chen Moore Associates, which will focus on engineering and taking the design concept to completion.

The ultimate goal: A master plan that provides non-motorized connectivity for bicyclists and pedestrians in a beautiful corridor for fitness and enjoyment. Join us to learn about the Master Plan objectives and to share your valuable input!"
