CITY OF MIAMI TO STUDY CLIMATE GENTRIFICATION

The City of Miami Commission recently passed a resolution directing the administration to research gentrification in areas of low median income and high elevation, and ways to stabilize property taxes in these areas. The City will also dedicate $4 million of the Miami Forever Bond to help residents at risk from climate change to make improvements on their homes. Miami is the first city in the U.S. to formally consider the topic.
