The title of Mayor Tomas Regalado’s Feb. 17 address -- “What’s in Store for Miami’s Future?’’ -- suggests that there might a vision knocking around in there after all. Even if we’re not a Metropolis.
So maybe now that he’s been in office a couple of months, the mayor who won office by saying ‘’no’’ to predecessor Manny Diaz can spell out an urban agenda that’s not limited to the (alas) very necessary task of shoring up the city’s dismal fiscal picture.
The mayor is hardly an electrifying speaker and the audience is likely to be friendly, but there should be some smart questions from this bunch. And a chance for you to pitch a query as well.
The talk, at 7:30 p.m., is free, at The Rusty Pelican on Virginia Key (Regalado’s thoughts about which I’m looking forward to).
You can also have cocktails and a 3-course dinner with the mayor and the UEL crowd starting at 6 p.m., though that will cost $25 ($20 for students) plus cash bar. UEL asks for cash or a check at the door, or you can go to the UEL website and use Paypal (www.urbanenvironmentleague.blogspot.com). RSVP a must at firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone 786-472-0011.
