Achieving a Walkable Wynwood

The Wynwood BID has, in only one year, become a force for change within the business and arts district of Wynwood. Change is everywhere you look--from new, ground-up construction of residential buildings for the first time in over a decade; monthly art walks that attract over 15,000 people to the district; even the presence of several microbreweries to open this month. Wynwood has never been stronger.

 

As a civic organization (a board of the City of Miami) backed by the over 400 property owners who have elected to self-tax in the name of district-wide progress, the Wynwood BID is making it's mark on transportation within the district. This project will continue that forward momentum, ensuring that residents and visitors alike know about and have incentives to try out the new transportation methods (one-way streets; public bike stations; bike racks; trolleys; bus benches; improved on-street and off-street parking) and pedestrian improvements (new crosswalks; flashing lights; night lighting; signage; and maps).

 

Run, don't walk to Wynwood--or better yet, bike--this is Miami's new model for urban mobility and forward-thinking planning.
