It’s 2040, and all Miamians live in safe, quality homes that they can afford, paying no more than 30% of their income on the rent or mortgage. These apartments or houses are close to jobs, schools, grocery stores, and places for the community to gather and recreate. Parents can get home in time to make and enjoy dinner with their families or take part in restorative activities like exercise and recreation. Black and Hispanic residents have equitable access to these homes.
The homes are resilient to flooding, strong storms, and extreme heat.
Families have a choice in what neighborhoods they can live in depending on what they value, whether it is proximity to loved ones, their community, or certain opportunities for economic mobility.
Families are able to keep their kids in the same school if they choose because they are not being displaced from their neighborhoods due to rising rents or landlord decisions to renovate and rent to a higher-income market.
In 2023, Miami is in the adolescence of its growth and development. Compared to many other cities across the country, we are still defining what we will be, and Miami has ample resources to make this vision a reality.
