Phase I: 4/23/24 – 5/22/24 (Tentative schedule)

Scope: Install Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) and drill equipment, fuse pipe, drill pilot hole and make necessary passes to enlarge the diameter of the borehole.

The latest issue of MB magazine is out now!

Those lovable sea turtles are back for another nesting season in Miami Beach as you’ll discover in MB’s cover story, “It’s Turtle Time” on page 24. We take you on an in-depth journey into the lives at these beloved sea creatures and bring you the latest scientific thinking of how adult females manage to find their way back to the same beach where they were born — sometimes decades later — to lay their own eggs. Our article also discusses how climate change may be affecting the reproduction cycles of sea turtles.

Did you know that Miami Beach is the only municipality in Miami-Dade County that employs its own prosecutorial staff? They handle the types of criminal cases that the court system often refers to as quality-of-life cases. While such offenses do not involve serious injury, significant property damage or financial loss, they are important to residents and businesses. MB shadowed our prosecutors to bring you “Making the Case” on page 36.

Fight the Bite


Take precautions against mosquito-borne illness by applying bug spray, avoiding areas with high mosquito populations, and wearing long pants and shirts when possible - especially during sunrise and sunset when mosquitoes are most active.


To prevent the bite and spread of disease by mosquitoes, remember to drain and cover.


  • Flush water from water-bearing plants so they don't become a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Disposing of excess water at least once a week disrupts the mosquitoes' life cycle, preventing mosquito egg deposits and killing existing larvae in the process.
  • Survey your garden and backyard, checking landscaping for current and future locations of standing water. Mosquitoes need as little as a bottle cap of water to reproduce, so every little bit counts.
  • Eliminate all sources of standing water by emptying potential water-holding yard items, including pots, buckets and wheelbarrows weekly. Make sure to drain items more frequently following rainfall.

Flip the Switch: Sea Turtle Season is Here

Sea turtle season in Miami Beach runs from April 1 through October 31.

Our beach is a crucial nesting habitat for sea turtles. As sea turtle hatchlings make their way from sand to sea, the stark contrast between the darker dunes and the reflection of the moon over the ocean helps them determine where to go.

Artificial lighting near beaches presents a significant hazard by confusing sea turtles and leading them to mistakenly crawl toward the artificial lights instead of heading to the ocean. Turn off the lights to help keep sea turtles safe!

Do not disturb or touch nesting sea turtles or hatchlings. Report any disturbances or lost turtles to MyFWC Florida Fish and Wildlife at 1.888.404.3922, to Miami-Dade County Government at 305.310.3046 or to Miami Beach PD at 305.673.7900. Let's protect our beach ecosystem together!
