#ICYMI: Governor Rick Scott announced his recommendation to designate two (2) #NorthMiamiBeach areas be designated "Opportunity Zones" to encourage investment and jobs through tax deferments for investors. Low Tax Opportunity Zones, as established in the federal Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017, encourage long-term investment and job creation in targeted communities by reducing taxes for many job creators. Low Tax Opportunity Zones enhance local communities’ ability to attract businesses, developers and financial institutions to invest in targeted areas by allowing investors to defer capital gains taxes through investments in federally established Opportunity Funds. It's now pending The U.S. Department of the Treasury's approval. Here are all the zones nominated statewide: bit.ly/2HnS4TM. #IamNMB ...

Where all the parks are.

The parks need to be left alone but back off 151 east of Biscayne needs improvement.

Stay away from those parks.

To make it easier to build houses that will be destroyed by climate instability? Rick Scott doesn’t know anything other than how to scam taxpayers.

Mike Sullivan across from us

Dude Oleta Park will not be touched, all areas around it need huge help. Great idea actually

How far South does this area go?

No way !

Mmm... more than half shown on the map is actually North Miami and a State Park. The west half is NMB.

So basically washington park and highland village looks like everything else belongs to north miami or mangroves

Good luck!

Please stay away from the parks, dont get rid of them

50 years it will be all underwater

This is horrible!
