The City of Miami Springs will have a question in the upcoming November election. Should the city annex the area west of Miami Springs, between the FEC tract and the Palmetto expressway?
- The city would be able to dramatically increase the tax base with a large industrial area.
- Potentially lowering taxes to residents as a result of the widened tax base.
- The city would have to hire more employees to service the area including police officers, public works, code enforcement, and the building department
Below, you’ll find the question as it’ll appear in the November ballot along with a map of the area:
Annexation of Unincorporated Business Area Contiguous to the City of Miami Springs
Shall the City of Miami Springs annex the unincorporated business area generally bounded by NW 36th Street on the south, NW 74th Street on the north, the service road parallel to the Palmetto Expressway on the west, and Ludlam Drive on the east, excluding the Florida East Coast Railway Terminal, recognizing that the area is subject to potential modifications and final approval by Miami-Dade County?
