Meeting Scheduled Today In Overtown To Help Name The Underdeck

A meeting is scheduled today in Overtown to help decide the name of the Underdeck.

The meeting was being promoted on social media by Miami-Dade commissioner Keon Hardemon yesterday, who said he was asking the public for help to “name and brand” the project.

The 33-acre Underdeck is being built as part of the $800 million Signature Bridge project now under construction, and mostly will consist of recreational space underneath highway overpasses.

Separately, Miami-Dade recently published a February 2021 letter from the city of Miami detailing a request for funding to build a Baywalk connection between the Resorts World Miami property and Museum Park.

Practical names don’t work in the current year. I mean, I literally deactivated my bank account from SunTrust because rather than a name like SunBB&T for their merger, “Truist” sounds like a drag queen’s stage name.

Overtown will soon see a huge change and this “Underdeck” surely helps. The Underdeck sounds about right also, no need for a new name.

Yes, #blm but no, this is not gentrification. This is bringing desperately needed improvements to a largely undeveloped and underutilized area.

Gentrification is a stretch at best.

Including all the range of shades of brown, pinkish people, deep tans, albinos, and mixed colors. So much fuss over melanin pigments, let’s pay attention to the individual’s content of character. Keep MLK’s dream alive.

This area isn’t even Overtown, its the Arsht Center and the eastern most area of it directly on the water where the old Herald building was. I don’t see why they are limiting input to just Overtown residents. Seems ironic considering the history of the area.

Because if they don’t it will be considered racist, like everything else. Didn’t you see some comments here making about blm.

Historically, it was called “Miramar,” and was one of Miami’s earliest streetcar suburbs and had many large mansions.

yeah I was kind of wondering that too – why wouldn’t there be a meeting in OMNI / Arts & Ent. District? Maybe in addition to the Overtown meeting?

Waiting forever for this connection between Pace Park and Museum Park. This should have been done 5 years ago when the Herald building was demolished.

Preach! And while we’re at it can we finally connect the Brickell Circle with Jose Marti Park and stop segregating the city by financial class.

You mean Pace Park and Ferré Park. Museum Park was changed 3 years ago to Ferré Park with unanimous votes by commisioners and mayor.

Black man in Miami. Should be named after Miami’s first Black Millionaire Dana Albert Dorsey who also by the way sold Fisher Island 🏝to Carl Fisher. Donated land to the city of Miami that that became Dorsey Park, Library and to Miami-Dade County public school. Dorsey High School Bulls, before they made it a Junior high school and now Dorsey Skilled Center. That was because of Intergation. They renamed and moved it. Today it’s known as Miami Northwestern High School Bulls.
