Greenway design workshops

Three events in Homestead this week will help shape the planned Biscayne-Everglades Greenway, a multi-use path that is to connect the two national parks in South Miami-Dade County.

On Thursday from 6 to 7:30 p.m., a community workshop will include a review of the greenway route and discussion of amenities that might be included in the final plan. You can take part by simply showing up at the Miami-Dade College Homestead Campus, 500 College Terrace, Aviation Building F, Room F222-223.

On Saturday, the American Institute of Architects, which is helping design the greenway, will conduct a morning bus tour of the route, followed by a design workshop to draft plans and drawings of proposed greenway amenities, signage and other features. For this, space is limited to the first 50 who sign up by calling county park planner Mark Heinicke at 305-755-5461 or e-mailing him here. The tour starts at 8 a.m.

Then from 5 to 6 p.m. Saturday, the community is invited to attend an AIA design presentation, again in the college's Aviation Building, Room F222-223.
