The City of Miramar and its Commission is gearing up to establish a new City Advisory Board for Historic Miramar. The Historic Miramar Advisory Board will foster greater community engagement on matters that impact University Drive to State Road 7 and Pembroke Road to County line Road in the city. March 8, 2017 Commission meeting was the 1st of 2 readings to adopt the board through ordinance; affirming its’ creation. Its 2nd reading will be heard at the March 29, 2017 City Commission meeting.
As a 7-member board, they will provide invaluable input on numerous improvements currently being made to beautify the historic part of the City. Their goals include quality of life service enhancements; analyzing issues; making recommendations to the City Commission; and most importantly contributing an active voice for the implementation of infrastructure improvements, beautification, health and welfare issues and maintenance being considered for the historic side of the City.
The board’s base composition will include five Commission appointed residents who live within the historic part of the City; and an additional two with extenuating relationships to the city. They include one business owner whose place of business is within the historic part of the City and one resident who does not live within the historic part of the City. Each appointee outside of the (5) base members will be selected by majority vote of the City Commission.
The Historic Miramar Advisory Board is indicative of the City’s desire to have citizen engagement in all matters of the City. It’s Right Here in Miramar™.
