Matters.

Local Officials Need to Hear From You

Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez recently vetoed legislation approved by a Board of County Commission vote to provide oversight of motor racing and require community impact studies. Please join us in emailing the Board of Commissioners to ask them to override Mayor Gimenez's veto.

 

 

STEP 1: Copy the below message

 

STEP 2: Click an "Email Commissioner..." button below to send the message to your first commissioner. (Your priority should be to email "Commissioners Against Resolution," however, all commissioners need to hear from us. The Mayor's veto may influence those Commissioners who were initially in favor.)  

 

STEP 3: Paste the copied message into the body of your email and customize it with your personal statements as desired.

 

STEP 4: "Send" your email. The Commissioners need to hear from you! 

STEP 5: Repeat Steps 1-4 and send the message to another Commissioner on the list below.

Dear Commissioner,

 

Please vote to override Mayor Gimenez's veto and approve Commissioner Barbara Jordan's resolution which provided oversight of motor racing and required community impact studies. The Miami Gardens City Council voted to formally object to F1 racing at Hard Rock stadium on October 23rd due to residents concerns about the poisonous dust particles from tires that will pollute our air, ear damaging noise pollution related to F1 engines, traffic inconveniences, road closures, light pollution, and construction related inconveniences. I share these concerns.

After all these months,  F-1 and the Dolphins have refused to produce any actual data about pollution or noise produced by its cars (including F-2, F-3, F-4, and Masters Historic cars that would also be participating) or races. They have neither provided information about the construction, disruption and closures on NW 199th Street or 27th Avenue that would be required. This is absurd and unacceptable. F-1 boasts of 70-plus years of experience and 20 races worldwide every year, however NONE of the U.S. races currently take place in a "bedroom" community like Miami Gardens. Requiring oversight, impact studies, and public hearings are a fair and just expectation of our elected officials given an event of this magnitude that presents such risks to our residents.

Especially considering our City's elected officials have rejected F1 at Hard Rock Stadium.

I imagine you would strongly consider the objections of your District's own locally elected officials in a similar situation.

It is my hope that you will help to protect and save our bedroom community from Formula 1 racing by voting to override the Mayor’s veto.

Sincerely,

[YOUR NAME]

Miami-Dade County Board of Commissioners

The Miami-Dade County Board of Commissioners has the power to block F1 racing at Hard Rock Stadium. District 1 Commissioner Barbara Jordan recently submitted a proposal to the Board that would require noise and traffic studies for auto races requiring road closures, as the Formula One event would. It also would require commission approval of the race, which would be held each May. It also would prohibit even temporarily closing roads for races when they go through residential areas. This proposal will be up for a vote at the public Commission Meeting on October 29th at the Stephen P. Clark Center. Join us at the meeting and show your support - wear orange!

 

ACTION ITEM: Please see above. We have highlighted those in favor of Commissioner's Jordan's resolution. Email them and say "Thank you!" for supporting the families against Formula 1 racing at Hard Rock stadium.
