A meeting was held at the Miami Beach Convention Center on Monday to discuss the city’s worsening traffic situation, according to the Herald.
Representatives from Miami-Dade, the state, and federal government were said to attend, along with city politicians and administrators.
The report said that Miami Beach politicians remain tepid to the idea of a Metromover extension to the city, claiming they are worried that it will give the county control of zoning in the surrounding area leading to more development.
The city is planning a one-year pilot of a water ferry service across Biscayne Bay in the meantime.
They have also invested in retiming traffic signals, hiring 10 new traffic officers, and are considering retiming drawbridge schedules.
City officials also point to new bike lanes, a completed beachwalk, and a trolley service.
