COMMISSION MEMORANDUM

TO:Honorable Mayor and Members of the City Commission 
FROM:Commissioner Mark Samuelian 
DATE:June  6, 2018
 



SUBJECT:DISCUSSION REGARDING CITY OF MIAMI BEACH STREET RAISING RESILIENCY POLICY AND POTENTIAL ALTERNATIVES.

ANALYSIS

Our current policy is to raise all streets to 3.7 NAVD as part of neighborhood improvement projects and the City's resiliency strategy.  This "one size fits all" approach does not appreciate the uniqueness of our neighborhoods. This policy has many downsides and risks for private property owners. Our residents want the City to address flooding; however, they have major concerns about this specific policy (see attached). We should discuss this policy and potential alternatives.
