Ride to raise supplies for Haiti. The ride will start at Government Center and go through Little Haiti.

We will be riding through Little Haiti and going to Haitian markets and picking up non-perishable goods. Water, canned food, medical supplies of your choice. We will be riding to Fire Station #9 and delivering it to the Miami Fire Department who will be bringing everything to a single drop off point.

This benefit is being organized by Emerge Miami and the Saturday Critical Mass Meetup group.

Good news for Little Haiti residents - it looks like the long wait for a promised new park is approaching an end. After more than nine years of promises, the new Little Haiti Park is set to open this October.
Amongst badly needed public green space, the park will feature a soccer field, a practice field, covered seating for 750, and a nearby cultural center, according to the Herald. The park will be located on 45 acres from 59th Terrace to 64th Street along NE 2nd Ave.

Some 200 parking spaces are planned for this small park, which I’m sure will screw up the urban design surrounding it. Sounds like another suburban solution to me - too bad we our transit in this corridor is still so poor and limited right now.

Though I do believe this park will be of benefit to the Little Haiti community, I also am afraid it will fail if it certain tried and true urban park design elements are missing.

There will be a public meeting on Monday, July 30th to exchange information and ideas regarding the park. It will be from 6-8 PM at the Notre Dame d’Haiti Catholic Church, located at 110 NE 62nd Street.
