Miami Credit Union Touted for Helping City's Incorporation
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- County commissioners here are applauding North Dade Community Development Federal Credit Union for its part in helping to incorporate Miami Gardens, which is marking its fifth anniversary this year.
According to a May 9 article in the Miami Herald, in 2003, a group of activists sought to incorporate Miami Gardens after residents said they felt neglected by the rest of Miami-Dade County. Commissioners were convinced that incorporation would help the area grow in a number of ways. Today, there are new shopping plazas, big homes, trendy restaurants and construction has started on a $25 million community center to house a spa, auditorium and fitness center.
