Miami Marine Stadium Bond Reauthorization Deferred by Miami City Commission

March 1, 2022

Unfortunately, the Miami City Commission opted to defer the public bond reauthorizing the stadium’s restoration—a vote that was expected to take place on February 24, 2022.

Moving forward, the City of Miami plans to conduct a feasibility study to justify the expenditure of public funds to bring the stadium back to life.

Leading up to the date when we expected the vote, stadium advocates generated over 5,000 letters to both the commission and the mayor. The stadium also received national media coverage in an extensive story by the Washington Post.

Once again in limbo, we encourage stadium supporters to continue contacting city officials and encouraging them to recommit to preserving this one-of-a-kind place. Stay tuned for updates and future action alerts, and thank you for your ongoing support.
