Actually Miamians are not at fault as they don't have a ruling over the canopy and urban aesthetics. Many cities in Dade don't have that many laws (codes, regulations, whatever...) that keep neighborhoods on a comfortable and decent level... as upper class neighborhoods do. Cities that aren't as rich are always vulnerable to eyesore protects like windowless strip malls, huge "tree-less" parking lots, kitschy neighborhood parks/ landscapes ... projects like these are usually given a green light. Some cities can only spend money on frugal things like sewer renovation, roads, street lights... etc.

What are ways to improve county as a whole and make a more prosperous place? That's all I want to know, because I know it has a lot of potential!

I see the city in the opposite light as I have seen a lot of improvements such as the airport area,the downtown area,the Miami River and the metromover expansion. More people are living downtown as that will increase as land is limited in Dade-County. If you lived in Miami back in the 1970's you would see a plethora of improvements made from that time. There have been many trees planted(1 million trees planned for future), the freeze Miami had sometime ago has made them looked a little ragged along with the storms and hurricanes from the past has depleted the well-manicure look from certain neighborhoods.


Miami is what it is, because of where it is located, if it was located where Atlanta it would be a booming central business hub but instead it is logistically poorly located to other American cities,however it is the Capitals of the America with a Latin American influence that speaks volume and has been built on that.


It is all in how you want to see that glass of water, half-full or half-empty.

San francisco is very small land wise and it is no where near as ghetto as MIA.

Is gentrification the key to prosperity?

Miami is far from being small landwise... heck, it's very visible from space. Can you believe there are only 2 million people in the whoooooooooooooooooooooole Dade area?

It's crazy

What happens when this is achieved? What happens to the family structure, property values, taxes, etc... of an area?

When this is achieved it makes Miami a more prosperous place to be, and a more desirable place to be.

Property values would be increased as will taxes, and the people can afford it, should be the ones living there.

Look at any desirable place in Southern california, they made it to where only certain people can afford it.

If the rest of dade county looked like Weston/Pinecrest/Coral Gables it would be a big step forward to transforming the city inside out, but it has to start somewhere!

schools become better, makes the area more desirable, and neighbhoods are better taken care of and it drastically reduces crime ALL at the same time.

Once the property value and taxes of a certain city increases and crime is reduce to a point where it becomes unimportant... what sort of actions does the city take in order to keep everything working?
