STRATEGIC ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR SOUTH DADE


In September 2020, the STRATEGIC ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR SOUTH MIAMI-DADE was completed. The EDC was pleased to collaborate and partner with Miami-Dade County RER, the South Florida Regional Planning Council, and numerous other public and private partners in its creation and development. The effort was funded through a U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) grant, and matching funds from Miami-Dade County.

This Plan represents strategies that can adjust to the challenges faced in the community and will grow in time to meet future needs. The EDC’s sustained commitment to the implementation of this Plan, will lay the groundwork for a sound economic future for South Miami-Dade.
