The City of Miami will hold three critically important workshops this month to gather input on specific proposals, including drawings and maps, for three different segments of the Commodore Trail. Each will begin at 6:30pm.

Thursday, May 19, 6:30pm .: Segment 1 workshop (Cocoplum Circle to N. Prospect Dr.), Miami City Hall, 3500 Pan American Dr.

Thursday, May 26, 6:30pm : Segment 4 workshop (Mercy Way to Rickenbacker Causeway), Immaculata La Salle High School, Student Learning Center, 3601 South Miami Ave.

Tuesday, June 21 6:30pm : Segment 2 workshop (N. Prospect Dr. to Darwin St.), Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart, Barat Campus, 3747 Main Highway.

These workshops will be our opportunity to give vitally important input to the staff and consultants and let the city and county know we’re actively engaged. Please go to all three workshops if you can, since they deal with different, distinct parts of the trail, and encourage friends and neighbors to go with you. You’ll be part of one of the most interesting and innovative projects in Miami-Dade County to improve conditions for bicyclists, runners, and pedestrians.

Registration for the workshops is not required, but it will be very helpful if you can tell us you plan to attend. If so, please click here to register.
