Master Planning Information
A VISION FOR THE FUTURE OF THE VILLAGE’S CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT
10-Year Master Implementation Plan was Developed with Unprecedented Public Input Under the Guidance of Local Firms PlusUrbia and Perkins+Will
In January 2018, the BID Board voted to adopt the Plan which will serve as a comprehensive roadmap and clear, coordinated plan for growing and improving the Grove’s central business district while staying true to the unique character and history of the neighborhood. The Plan, which was led by the local urban design studio PlusUrbia and the Miami office of the architecture and planning firm Perkins+Will, was based on several meetings, a public visioning workshop and interviews with area residents, business owners, civic organizations, and other key stakeholders, as well as more than 400 survey responses. In addition to defining six focus areas—identity & character, open space, mobility, land use & form, community, and resiliency—the plan incorporates the goals of the Village Council, Grove 2030, and other previous plans into a singular effort.
“This master plan is a launch pad for exciting things to come, and most of all, it ensures that our city municipalities, community groups and stakeholders on the same page. We can now work together to continue elevating the Grove, using this as a resource along the way,” said Ken Russell, Miami City Commissioner.
In addition to containing specific short, medium, and long-term actions to guide growth in the Grove in a positive way, the Master Implementation Plan is intentionally flexible and can be modified to keep pace with changing conditions, needs, and desires. Each action falls under the jurisdiction of one or more governmental agencies or civic groups, and may also require broader inter-agency coordination and support.
“We’re thinking critically about the decade ahead and how we can encourage growth and vibrancy while maintaining the Grove’s history and charm,” said Nicole Singletary, Executive Director of the Coconut Grove Business Improvement District. “The Coconut Grove BID has already started to move forward with some of the capital improvements outlined in this plan, starting with parking and transportation initiatives throughout the village.”
