Meetings to shape Ludlam Trail vision

A pair of charrettes — community-based planning workshops — will be held in coming weeks to help neighbors of the proposed Ludlam Trail refine their vision of a world-class linear park extending 6.2 miles from Dadeland to the City of Miami’s westernmost neighborhood. The trail has been a dream for decades, and now Friends of the Ludlam Trail — an initiative of Green Mobility Network — is working hard to make the dream a reality.

The first charrette, for County Commission District 6, will kick off at 9:30 a.m. Feb. 28 at West Miami Middle School. Follow-up studio days will be held March 2-4 from 2 to 8 p.m. at A.D. “Doug” Barnes Park.

The second charrette, for Commission District 7, launches at 6 p.m. March 9 at South Miami Senior High School. Its studio days will be held March 10-12, from 2 to 8 p.m., at Gibson-Bethel Community Center in South Miami.
