Miami Beach approves North Beach master plan

The Miami Beach City Commission on Wednesday unanimously approved a master plan for the city’s North Beach neighborhood, which stretches from 63rd Street to 87th Street.

The plan, which was developed over the past year by town planners Dover Kohl, offers a set of specific proposals to revitalize the area which has lagged behind South Beach and Mid-Beach areas of the city in terms of development.

The 189-page master plan calls for five big ideas to revitalize the area: the creation of a town center along 71st Street, more walkable streets, enhancing neighborhoods through the creation of local historic and local conservation districts, the creation of more parks and upgrading construction to withstand the challenges of sea-level rise.

Jason King, a project director and town planner at Dover Kohl, who oversaw the creation of the master plan, told commissioners “our job is to create the economic revitalization of North Beach.”
