We have new meeting dates! We agree with all of you who have told us Friday evenings are not a great time for Village Council meetings, and we’re doing something about it. Starting in June 2018, as often as possible our meetings will be on Mondays at our usual meeting place, Miami City Hall. The meetings will also be livestreamed from our Facebook page. View the agendas for our meetings here. Meetings for the rest of 2018: Mon. Oct. 29; Mon., Nov. 19; Fri., Dec. 14.
Neighborhood Conservation District zoning update: On May 1 the Village Council passed a unanimous resolution supporting changes to the City of Miami Planning Department's proposed revisions of the Neighborhood Conservation District (NCD) ordinance affecting Coconut Grove. Learn more and read the resolution by going to either our Resolutions page or our Housing and Zoning page. On June 20, the Planning, Zoning, and Appeals Board (PAZB) approved revisions to the proposed ordinance in line with what the Village Council and many neighborhood groups wanted. The next major meeting on the NCD revision will be before the Miami City Commission (originally scheduled for Oct. 25, deferred to Nov. 15). Read the most recent draft of the proposed NCD legislation here.
OUR MISSION: The Coconut Grove Village Council advocates for and represents the diverse residents and business owners of Coconut Grove, with its focus on safe, naturally beautiful, and sustainable neighborhoods linked to its historic origins while embracing bike-friendly and pedestrian-oriented pathways to a prosperous urban core.
OUR MEETINGS: Our public meetings are the third Friday of every month, 6:30 p.m., at Miami City Hall, 3500 Pan American Dr., Coconut Grove. We encourage the public to attend. Our meetings are also livestreamed and archived on our Facebook page. Please visit the page and follow us. You can view the agenda of our upcoming meetings here.
