The EDC was created in 1993, soon after Hurricane Andrew devastated the southern portion of Miami-Dade County, with the goal of working with business owners and community leaders to bring back the area's vital economy. The EDC is currently operating under a grant as a strategic partner to develop an economic development and revitalization plan for south Miami-Dade. Members of the South Miami-Dade community will be invited to attend community-wide meetings to provide their input into this process. The first event will be held at Zoo Miami on Wednesday, November 20th from 10:00 a.m. to noon. There is no cost to attend. To register please visit www.southdadeedc.com
