The City of Miramar has launched a public information campaign, Miramar Stormwater Matters! It will provide the community with key facts on decisions that directly correlate with the City’s growth, funding and preparedness as it relates to storm water.
The Miramar Stormwater Matters! Campaign is chocked full of ways that Miramar students, residents and businesses alike can learn about their City through something as relative as a storm drain. In doing so, area Miramar science teachers will be provided with lesson planning tools and students with a poster arts contest to express what they have learned.
Residents can look for informative videos and updates on their City Comcast Cable TV Channel (78) and favorite social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Plans also include getting information out to Miramar businesses and contractors that keep the City viable.
“The future of the City is in its kids,” stated Chief of Marketing and Public Relations, Natasha Hampton, who added, ”Because sustainability is important, beginning with Miramar students makes sense.”
Miramar Stormwater Matter! Campaign will also hit the streets when the City transforms its vehicles into “mobile mascots” of the campaign with vehicles bearing the campaign emblem and pledge. “It takes a lot to keep a fledging City working and the mobile mascots help bring light to the very vehicles utilized in this important work each day. This campaign speaks to the City’s desire to inform and engage its public on the impact of their tax dollars,” stated Thomas Good, Director of Public Works.
