Miami-Dade launches Thrive 305 to allow constituent involvement in government
In collaboration with The Miami Foundation, civic partners, and other elected leaders, Mayor Daniella Cava launched Thrive 305. This initiative was an incredible opportunity for Miami-Dade residents, because they were able to participate directly in local government.
The civic engagement program included a wide range of surveys and community events to get input and opinion. By gathering this information, Miami-Dade can cater to the needs of constituents and be conscious of what its residents want.
Mayor Cava is excited to see how the program will improve the county. She shared, “Thrive305 will activate residents across the County to help inform my policies and major initiatives, as we work together to drive an equitable recovery and build a thriving community.”
After all that Miami and the country as a whole have been through this year, Thrive 305 is a remarkable way to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to participate in local government decisions.
As the Mayor said, “Through a countywide survey and series of community engagement events, we will activate our greatest asset: You, our residents, incorporating your diverse voices to help drive decision-making.”
Mayor Daniella Levine Cava was elected the first-ever woman Mayor in Miami-Dade County in November 2020. She is a social worker, lawyer, community activist and previously served as the Miami-Dade County Commissioner for District 8.
