PLPG seeks to ensure proactive stewardship of public land use and disposition that centers on community. Promoting community engagement with local stakeholders through a transparent and accountable process that creates and preserves greater accessibility, sustainability, and equity. 


PLPG envisions a Miami-Dade County where public land benefits all residents, reflects the community’s will, and inspires harmony between environment and people.


Development on public land should:

  • Prioritize long-term public benefits over short-term speculative profits 

  • Center the needs of low and moderate-income communities, especially historically impacted neighborhoods

  • Promote walkable, transit-rich communities where everyone has easy access to jobs, green space, schools, grocery stores, and health care

  • Ensure local stakeholders have a right to remain in the communities they’ve built, and eliminate displacement 

  • Create deeply affordable housing to stabilize, diversify and enrich our communities 

  • Promote climate resilience, environmental sustainability and utility justice

To meet these goals, decisions around public land must:

  • Provide transparent, accessible and accountable legislative, administrative and community engagement processes

  • Be guided by a comprehensive strategy to ensure equitable access to public land

  • Empower community stakeholders, including low-income homeowners, renters, and small business owners, with decision-making roles in what happens in their neighborhoods 

  • Intentionally include local community organizations, businesses and institutions as partners in development, implementation and monitoring

  • Recognize the importance of adaptability and continue to shift as the environment shifts
