To begin the planning process, the first milestone is an effort to research and assess environmental, economic and social equity challenges within Miami-Dade County and to evaluate the programs currently in place to address these issues. The assessment is used to gather baseline data and to identify the challenges to be addressed in GreenPrint.
Here is a link to Miami-Dade County's Sustainability Assessment Report by area.

This published assessment is not final; it is a living/working document. There will be gaps, unanswered questions and open issues. That's why we welcome you to provide comments and input for a 30-day period, from December 18, 2009 to January 18, 2010. Your comments are important for the plan's development.
