Homestead residents can expect plenty of improvements citywide - South Miami-Dade - MiamiHerald.com:
This year, residents can look forward to a host of upgrades to Homestead's public spaces -- from downtown Krome Avenue to a senior center on its west side -- Mayor Lynda Bell announced during her second State of the City address.
Three hundred people gathered Tuesday night at the Champions Club of the Homestead-Miami Speedway to hear her speak.
Homestead and the Redland Tropical Gardens will get $1 million worth of new trees from Albert Livingston's Tree Farm, Medallion Tree Farms and Arazoza Brothers. The trees will enhance the tree canopy throughout Homestead. A plan is being drafted for where to plant them, Bell said.
