This item was referred by the City Commission at its October 16, 2019 meeting to the Neighborhood/Community Affairs Committee and is sponsored by Commissioner Ricky Arriola
The referral requested that the NCAC Committee consider the following actions:
1) Repeal Resolution 2019-30826, which named the northern Miami Beach Convention Center park as “Collins Canal Park,”
2) Re-name Collins Canal Park as “Muhammad Ali Park.”
The referral item also proposed that the NCAC Committee further recommend an amendment to the City’s naming ordinance, codified in Article VI of Chapter 82 of the City Code, which would exempt the park from current referendum requirements.
