Shifting Lines: How the Historical Evolution of Transit Authority Has Shaped Miami-Dade County

Bilzin Sumberg

South Florida Redevelopment Conference
March 3, 2021
Stanley B. Price and Anthony De Yurre discussed and explored at Bilzin Sumberg’s South Florida Redevelopment Conference the history of Rapid Transit Zones in Miami-Dade County, the effects of the municipal devolution, and future trends for the development of RTZs. Miami-Dade’s County’s first mass transit ordinances for Rapid Transit Zones (RTZs) were developed in the 1970s. Stanley B. Price, served as a principle draftsmen for these laws, which initially gave the County total jurisdiction over rapid transit development within its borders. Subsequent devolution of some decision-making authority to local municipalities substantially altered the course of development in the County, while recent events have involved greater jockeying between the County and the municipalities over RTZs.
