We need to re-district
Is it too late to get a charter change (I think that is what is needed) in place for the next election.
We need to rethink our commission districts.
Let’s add two more commissioners giving us this breakdown:
· One for New Miami, Brickell City, (S. of River to U1, W.- I-95 to Bay)
· One for the Grove (U1 south to Gables, W.- Lejeune to Bay)
· One for Midtown, (N. of River to 36 street ( might include the Design district) W.- Bay to - I-95 ?
These are only suggestions, but you get the point.
Each of these districts has its own goals and objectives and it is difficult to believe that one representative could represent all of them. This would give those districts representation that that represents them and hold elected officials responsible to the residents of those neighborhoods.
This would also require that the commission vacate City Hall, give it back to the residents as a historic destination because it is too small, and move to the MRC building on second Ave. where they belong.
