The City of Miami's series of meetings and workshops to create a parks and recreation master plan continues through this month for residents in the city's northeast quadrant.
According to the city, the purpose of the meetings is to generate a citywide vision of a parks and recreation system for the 21st Century, working with broader objectives identified in Miami 21, Mayor Manny Diaz's plan to create a new blueprint for urban development.
The meetings have been taking place in two segments -- starting with a workshop where residents and planners can exchange ideas, followed by an open house where results of those workshops will be on view.
The sessions are conducted in conjunction with Goody Clancy, a Boston-based architecture, planning and preservation firm that has worked across the country on similar projects.
The schedule for the remainder of September:
• Upper Eastside Workshop: 6 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday at Legion Park, 6447 NE Seventh Ave.
• Little Haiti Open House: 5 to 8 p.m. Sept. 21, Athalie Range Park, 525 NW 62nd St.
• Upper Eastside Open House: 4 to 8 p.m. Sept. 22; Legion Park.
Workshops and open houses for downtown Miami, Overtown, Wynwood and Edgewater have already taken place.
