Expand and add Palm Beach County as well. Either that or add Ft. Lauderdale to the Miami subforum and give Palm Beach County it's own forum (gets the most newcomer inquires/highest inbound migration). People in parts of what is defined as Ft. Lauderdale area take commutes into Miami and also you have People commuting into Ft. Lauderdale from Palm Beach County. I.E someone takes a job in Hialeah (Miami). They need someplace close that's family friendly. The closest places are west Pembroke Pines (Ft. Lauderdale) and Cooper City about 20 minutes away, and finding a similar area within defined "Miami" is actually a further drive from Hialeah. The three counties to a degree interact with each other, usually at their borders.

Or, give Ft. Lauderdale/West Palm Beach it's own subforum seperate from the Miami forum, and people can go ahead and make recommendations of those mentioned areas (and other similar situations) in the Miami forum since culturally those places are quite different from Miami and in a way sustain themselves, and also those two counties both (still) trend on positive inbound migration while Dade has negative migration, sans immigration.

No matter what happens, Palm Beach County should also be included in the plan.

What to do about Palm Beach County would be the next poll next question. First, we want to decide this one.

I have to agree you need to keep Miami (Miami-Dade), Ft. Lauderdale, Pompano, Deerfield (Broward County) together.Re name it Miami-Ft.Lauderdale.

Palm Beach could get their own section, but like CTR said people could live in Ft. Lauderdale and commute to Palm Beach or Miami for work. So it might be a good idea to just keep them together (Palm beach, Broward and Miami-Dade). Rename the Miami thread too include Ft. Lauderdale and Palm Beach.

This is what it should be: Miami - Ft. Lauderdale - Palm Beach

I do not agree. I believe the Administrator has it right. Co-mingling two counties into one is not a good idea given that Miami is significantly different from the Ft. Lauderdale area.

I do agree that Palm Beach needs to have its own section.

I think Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach should have their own sub-forum.

There have been a lot of threads and posts for each of these cities, and this would help clean up the Miami forum.


If not, I think the Miami forum should be called Miami - Fort Lauderdale - West Palm Beach or South Florida (which will continue to include threads and posts from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties).

Expand and rename. I feel it's beneficial to have both counties in the same thread. As far as Palm Beach, perhaps a sub-forum.

In my view, one cannot intelligently separate the questions. The tri-county area is a unit in many ways, and though of course Miami-Dade has special characteristics, even these may be blurred in the coming years. In fact, I travel across the tri-county area frequently and observe its structure, and, while significant differences certainly remain, the social and economic features have become blurred before my very eyes over the last two or three years, it is visible - especially in comparison to the Gulf of Mexico/Caribbean region, other regions of Florida, the US, and the world -, and I expect the trend to continue, for better and for worse.

But if one is not physically in the area, traveling across it and observing these characteristics - and comparing them with other regions as mentioned above - one cannot know that, can one?

For the moment, I would suggest, in this order of geographic, social and economic sense:

1) renaming the Miami sub-forum to southeastern Florida (Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties);

or

2) do nothing;

or

3) keeping the Miami sub-forum and add a Broward/Palm Beach County sub-forum.


The last thing I would suggest is to consider the questions separately, it makes no geographic, social, or economic sense.

But obviously, reading through the various posts, there are different views and opinions, so good luck in sorting it out!

I think we should have a South Florida forum that covers all three counties.
