Vote Deferred On Controversial Miami 21 Changes That Could Kill Small Development

Miami commissioners deferred a vote last week on modifying the Miami 21 zoning code. The changes could have made it impossible to develop small lots.

With no discussion, commissioners voted to defer the vote until late January. The proposal already passed a first reading in October.

Under the proposed rules, the minimum lot size for a development would increase significantly throughout the city, to as much as 20,000 square feet in Brickell. That would make it impossible for smaller projects to be built.
