Hold the Line Coalition
305.667.7337 outreach@tropicalaudubon.org

Created in 1975, the Urban Development Boundary (UDB) separates urban development from rural and open lands, by creating a vital buffer of land between metro Miami and the Everglades.

It is an invisible line along the western and southern regions of Miami-Dade County separating low-density and urban zoning. Miami-Dade is the only county in South Florida to have established a comparable UDB. .................................................................................................

The main objective of the Hold the Line—Ride the Line Coalition is to ensure that South Florida becomes sustainable and resilient by protecting and the rural and natural resource areas to the west of the UDB, and by endorsing smart growth projects within our urban core. We believe that moving the UDB at any location will only encourage and lead to development on sensitive areas that preserve vital resources such as our drinking water, and the open spaces we need to protect our communities from floods, climate change and sea level rise. Our immediate goals for 2014 include stopping the expansion of the SR-836 outside the UDB, and pushing for an efficient mass transit system in Miami Dade County. Stand up for our quality of life and our future! Make sure that our existing communities don’t lose out to the pressures of big developers looking to make big money.
