Scientific research shows that the City of Miami faces the prospect of rising seas and warmer temperatures in the coming decades. In combination with strong hurricanes, the ULI (Urban Land Institute) assessment provided a set of recommendations for hardening the neighborhood’s infrastructure and to protect its assets.

Some of the recommendations include: updating zoning and building guidelines; refining and adopting proposed design guidelines for the Miami Baywalk; installing green infrastructure to reduce flood and heat impacts; develop long-range, comprehensive master planning document; and strengthen community preparedness in vulnerable locations.

A big focus is on strengthening the Biscayne Bay waterfront, as Miami’s first line of defense against rising seas and transforming the Miami River into a mixed-used district that bridges the gap between the water and surrounding neighborhoods. A more comprehensive report will be released by the ULI in the coming months.
