The City of Coral Gables initiated the July 17-18, 2015, public workshop to inform the future planning and development of the US1 Corridor area of the city. The primary focus of the workshop was the US-1 Corridor, but also included walking tours and discussions of related areas of Red Road and Sunset Drive. In commissioning the workshop, the City anticipated the need to plan and manage the ongoing changes taking place in the study area and engage citizens and stakeholders in a dialog.
The objectives of the workshop were to:
Engage citizens, stakeholders and city staff in a dialog about the overall character of the area today and in the future, considering planning, design, transportation and policy issues in the US1 corridor area of the city;
Gather input from the public through a variety of individual and team activities;
Identify key issues, challenges and opportunities in the study area, and;
Generate recommendations for the City’s consideration.
