BPAC Meeting- Important Issues!
May 27, 2014 @ 5:30 pm - 7:15 pm
WHEN: Tuesday, May 27th, 5:30 P.M. WHERE: Stephen P. Clark Government Center (111 NW First St., Miami, 33128, Conference Room 18-4).
The Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee meets monthly advises the Miami-Dade MPO on issues relating to pedestrians and bicyclists, including short-term projects as well as a long-term comprehensive transportation plan.
This month’s meeting will tackle some important topics. A developer is seeking to build a parking lot, drive-through, and associated back of house functions at the corner of LeJeune Road and U.S1. This would cut into the M-Path and prove dangerous and costly, as MPO data shows that encroachments of this sort cause increased injuries and deaths among pedestrians and bicyclists. Judy Emerson from MDT is giving a presentation entitled “Request to Lease Land Beneath Metrorail at 401-405 S. Dixie Hwy.” at this month’s BPAC meeting. We have been working with the city and the developer to find a solution, but we need all the help we can get. So, please attend if you can, and tell our public officials that we want safe and humane streets!
