                                      Resolution Directive
                                          “…develop a County Aesthetic Master Plan that addresses landscaping
                                          and landscape maintenance of all public roadways and County
                                          facilities…”


                                      Rationale
                                          People want to live in and visit beautiful places.
                                          The physical appearance of a City has long been considered a sign of
                                          its socioeconomic health and prosperity.


                                      Needs Assessment
                                          Aesthetics is particularly important to Miami-Dade County given our
                                                      tourism.
                                          reliance on tourism
                                          Unaddressed aesthetic shortcomings could have a negative impact on
                                          tourism, economic development, and the quality of life of residents.
