Paradise: SoFlo's Call to Action
The grades are in, and South Florida is
headed for a mega-disaster if local governments, businesses, and
organizations donít start working together, according to a biennial
regional indicators report from Florida Atlantic University.
The report suggests that South Florida politicians, civic and
business leaders should focus on collaborative projects on
transportation, especially funding TriRail and other mass transit;
creating synergy rather than competition among the regionís 3 airports
and 3 seaports; building on the strengths and improving the weaknesses
of our schools, colleges, and universities as a collective whole; and
restoring the Everglades to the west and the coastline to the east.

houses and commercial fishing vessel dockage.

Environmental Solutions (CUES) at Florida Atlantic University, has
prepared two studies for Monroe County:
