Changing Communities: MIAMI Realtors Partnering with South Miami to Enhance Lifestyle of Local Residents

by | May 07, 2019



The MIAMI Association of Realtors (MIAMI) recently installed a new bicycle station and playground at Dison Park, an underserved area in South Miami. The project, completed under MIAMI’s Changing Communities initiative and in partnership with the City of South Miami, aims to activate a small, underused park that only had a gazebo, picnic tables and green space.


 

“South Miami families now have a local park where they can safely ride their bike to and play in a state-of-the-art playground,” said 2019 MIAMI Chairman of the Board José María Serrano, who attended the cycle station ribbon cutting ceremony on Dec. 27. “MIAMI’s Changing Communities initiative aims to make significant, lasting impacts and we think these new park additions will get more South Miami families living a healthier, active lifestyle.”

 

Changing Communities Initiative

The Dison Park enhancement is part of MIAMI Realtors Changing Communities initiative, which launched in 2017. In 2018, MIAMI Realtors invested more than $175,000 in grant funds from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) to improve our South Florida communities.  

Through member engagement and feedback, MIAMI developed a list of local community projects that could have the most impact. MIAMI invited its 46,000-plus membership for a brainstorming session and more than 200 members contributed ideas and volunteered to help. 

In 2018, MIAMI led more than 18 local community initiatives, including a dinner for the homeless at Chapman Partnership in Miami, partnering to install a Jupiter dog park, creating a shaded Doral trolley stop and more. Each project was led by the Realtor who proposed it and supported by a team of fellow Realtor volunteers and a Realtor partner (usually an elected official).

More MIAMI Realtors Changing Communities initiatives are planned for 2019.
