Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Facility Location and Land Use: The Urban/Rural Dilemma


Dade County, which contains the City of Miami, is generally urbanized, yet contains pockets of rural and semi-rural areas. These areas are affected by surrounding urbanization, and some landowners feel that their ability to control these effects is limited. Most of the locations affected by the interplay between economic forces promoting urbanization and environmental protection requirements are located in unincorporated areas. Thus, zoning, capital improvement and related decisions are made by a County Commission.
