BRIDGE REPRIEVE: Hours before the Brickell Avenue Bridge over the Miami River had been scheduled to shut down Monday night for work that was to close the bridge every night through Dec. 23, the Florida Department of Transportation announced after 4 p.m. that the work had been “postponed until further notice to avoid potential impacts to holiday traffic.” It didn’t set rescheduling dates. The heavily traveled bridge linking Brickell to Downtown in 2020 and 2021 underwent $4 million in repairs and the addition of gates to stop pedestrians with the aim of reducing time the bridge needed to remain open for boats and ships to pass.

GAS APPROACHES $3: Gasoline prices in Miami have fallen 10.2 cents per gallon to average $3.10 and may be below $3 soon, if only temporarily, according to GasBuddy. Prices in Miami are 39.5 cents per gallon lower than a month ago and 17.3 cents lower than a year ago. The national average is $3.09. “The national average for a gallon of gasoline is down nearly $2 compared to six months ago, and heading into Christmas travel week, is at its lowest in a year and a half, saving Americans some $750 million every day,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis. “While the decline should take the national average under $3 per gallon in the next week or so, it is soon likely to fade as oil prices have held in the $70 per barrel range.”

THE ACHIEVER: Jimmy Morales
When Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava offered Jimmy Morales the job of chief operations officer, he knew her vision would match his own, he recalls. The county’s need for resiliency infrastructure due to its own economic growth is a top priority, and he hopes to complete several transportation, sewer and water, housing and environmental infrastructure projects.

OPINION
Language, race, and birthplace are pivotal in public policy in Miami-Dade County, though they are often unspoken decision-making yardsticks in a world focused on political correctness.

But while these factors are policy gauges, they seldom use current data. The US Census Bureau’s American Community Survey 2021, out this month, is the most recent window into Miami-Dade’s demographic realities and should test our assumptions.

As climate villains go, South Florida hurricanes and flooding may be top of mind on the “Most Not Wanted” list, but extreme heat is No. 1, causing more deaths and negative economic impact than any other weather-related event.

The National Weather Service reports that a 30-year average of weather fatalities shows extreme heat causing more than three times as many deaths as hurricanes and almost two times more than floods.

CRIME SOARS: Violent crimes rose more than 31% in the first 10 months of 2022 from that period of 2021 in areas under the Miami-Dade Police Department, police figures show. October violent crimes pushed the increase up further from just under 30% through September. The 5,693 violent crimes in the first 10 months were up from 4,295 in the period last year. Homicides decreased more than 4% from last year to 84, though 19 homicides were recorded in October alone. Nonviolent crimes rose more than 17% through the 10 months compared to 2021. The rise had been more than 18% for the first nine months of 2022. Total crime rose almost 20% in those 10 months. Only one purse was snatched in the county this year, down from six last year, and the 24 pocket pickings were down from 47 last year, as fewer transactions use currency. The figures do not include crimes in areas municipal police patrol.

South Florida residential real estate experts believe rising mortgage rates are just a temporary phenomenon and rates will eventually come down next year.

In South Florida, a huge number of buyers just don’t finance, and if they do they finance less than the average in the country, said Harvey Hernandez, CEO of Newgard Development Group.

Miami Beach is seeking letters of interest from artistic and cultural organizations and facility operators to gauge what visions they could have for the development of a Byron Carlyle cultural center in North Miami Beach.

Miami Beach Commissioner Alex Fernandez asked the administration to request letters of interest to better understand “how would they envision the use of this space,” after Commissioner Kristen Rosen Gonzalez called for the prioritization of the redevelopment of the Byron Carlyle, located at 500 71st St. between Byron Avenue and Carlyle Avenue. “First, we need to know which are those cultural organizations, or cultural operators that would use it,” he said.

SOCIAL-MEDIA WATERSHED: The US Supreme Court is slated Jan. 6 to discuss whether to take up a high-profile case about a 2021 Florida law that placed restrictions on major social-media companies such as Facebook and Twitter. A court docket said justices are expected to consider the case during a behind-the-scenes conference. The Supreme Court receives thousands of cases a year but decides to take up only 100 to 150. Florida went to the Supreme Court after the 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals in May upheld much of a preliminary injunction against the law. The law targeted large companies such as Facebook and Twitter over decisions to remove politicians and other users from the social-media platforms. In part, it would prevent the platforms from banning political candidates from their sites and require companies to publish – and apply consistently – standards about issues such as banning users or blocking their content.

FILLING PARTNER’S SEAT: Miami Beach has welcomed its new city commissioner Laura Dominguez, life partner of late commissioner Mark Samuelian, to take the seat he left vacant. Commissioner Dominguez won the run-off election with 61.21% of the votes and was expected to take her seat at the commission Dec. 14. In her speech, Ms. Dominguez prioritized public safety, infrastructure projects and education. “It’s been a challenging year,” she said. “I lost the love of my life and immediately jumped into a special election to fill his seat during a governor’s year election with the voter universe of almost triple the size. It was a very hard and surreal experience.”

BREAKING NEWS:
Transportation planners vote to put more rail load on US government.
The executive policy committee of Miami-Dade’s Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) unanimously agreed last week to raise to 60% the federal government’s share of the cost to build an elevated heavy-rail system running from the Martin Luther King Jr. Metrorail station past Hard Rock Stadium to the Broward County line.

A 2019 resolution for the North Corridor project called for a federal contribution of 40% to 50% of the cost. A unanimous voice vote of the TPO committee Dec. 8, raised the federal amount to 60%, or whatever is the highest federal participation rate allowed. The remaining 40% would come from state and local sources.

MIAMI WILDS: Miami-Dade commissioners approved last week an extension of the deadline for the county to satisfy conditions of a $13.5 million grant for the Miami Wilds water park, adjacent to Zoo Miami. The local government now has until June 23 to meet the grant conditions. The next steps include the signing of the lease by Mayor Daniella Levine Cava and the environmental assessments required by US Fish and Wildlife Service to be done by the developer before beginning construction. The 27.5-acre park would cost over $100 million and include a lazy river attraction, wave pools, slides of all sizes, kiddie pools, a beach with a shady landscape, a 200-room hotel, 15,000 to 20,000 square feet of retail, and large parking areas.
