County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, who was tasked to put together the report that was up for approval resulting in an analysis of different locations for the new incinerator plant, could veto the recommendation made by the commission.
Chairman Jose “Pepe” Diaz, who represents the area, proposed the motion to select Doral as the site to build the new plant. Vice Chairman Oliver Gilbert moved the proposal, Commissioner Kionne McGhee seconded it, and it was approved unanimously without discussion.
A plan hatched nearly two decades ago to expand the boundaries of four municipalities in western Miami-Dade County may finally become a reality.
County commissioners will hold an initial public hearing Wednesday on a proposal to divvy up eight square miles of mostly industrial and commercial land in unincorporated Miami-Dade among the cities of Doral, Medley, Miami Springs and Virginia Gardens.
If approved, the plan would increase the size and tax base of the four cities west of Miami International Airport and south of West Okeechobee Road. Virginia Gardens would see the most drastic change — the village, which is less than one square mile, would grow to more than six times its current size.
