Stop Annexation

We secured a great victory on November 15th at County Hall

November 18th, 2022

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

We secured a great victory on November 15th at County Hall thanks to some fair and courageous county commissioners and the unity of our property owners, small and medium sized businesses and our employee associates.  We escaped a hostile, unfair, undemocratic and unwanted annexation of our properties and businesses by Miami Springs.   

That victory will provide us a choice about the way things proceed. However, this time it will be OUR choice.  We will fight with all of our power to prevent any annexation of our properties that denies us a vote.  Self-determination and the right to vote are fundamentally American.  In fact, our great nation was founded on such principles. 

Thank you again for your support of what was truly a tremendous group effort.  We trust our victory will soon rally many others to our cause (even some who never thought we’d get this done).  We’ll move forward together to find a proper place for our properties, businesses and employees to call home. Whether it remains unincorporated Miami-Dade County, or not, will largely depend on our collective desires and consent.  Let’s continue to stay strong and united so that we keep on winning.  Please keep coming back here for the latest updates.

Join us, and we can secure our victory.

November 1st, 2022

On Monday, November 1st, 2022 the county commission voted 7-5 against the first reading of the proposed interlocal agreement with Miami Springs. We fought hard, we marched, we protested, and we made our voices heard loud and clear. The win calls for a celebration, and it couldn’t be done without all of you.

However, the fight is still not over. We are one County Commission meeting away from winning against the threat of a hostile annexation. The Commission meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 15th, 2022. 

Please be there to reinforce our position against the annexation of Miami Springs.

Protest Over Annexation in Miami Springs

Miami-Dade County will meet with Miami Springs officials to discuss the recently passed annexation. But ahead of that meeting protestors are gathering against that vote.


Empresarios protestan por posible anexión de área no incorporada a Miami Springs

Publicado el 28 de octubre del 2022 del 28 de octubre del 2022
Varios empresarios de un área no incorporada de Miami Dade que podría anexarse a Miami Springs protestaron en contra de esta anexión que lleva ya 20 años discutiéndose en la comisión del condado. Néstor Machado, un empresario del área que está en contra de esa anexión de Miami Springs, expone: “yo soy negociante y tengo inquilinos que van a ser afectados, Miami Springs y esta área son incompatibles una es residencial y la otra industrial”. “Realmente Miami Springs no está ofreciendo nada de beneficios a los empresarios y almacenes, son negocios grandes” comenta Jorge Smith, otro empresario que está en contra de la anexión de Miami Springs, pues cree que “el problema con esto es que le va crear problemas a los pequeños negocios, le van a subir los impuestos”. La ciudad de Miami Springs asegura que la tasa de impuesto bajaría una vez se apruebe la incorporación de 6.91 a 3.71% y además asegura que les darán más servicios a estos empresarios. El administrador de la ciudad, William Alonso, informa: “tenemos comprometido a parte de la policía una inversión de millones de 3 a 5 años para eliminar las inundaciones”. “Es algo que hace 3 años estamos trabajando para dar los servicios a esa área … dicen que van a ofrecer más policías, pero no hay robo aquí, van a subir los taxes”, advierte el jefe de policía de Miami Springs, Armando Guzmán, quien recalca que “todos se quejan de las inundaciones” en el área. La zona en discordia son 1.9 millas del área comercial adyacente a la ciudad de Miami Springs, que se extiende del sur al noroeste de la 36 calle y al oeste de la 67 avenida con conexión al oeste con la autopsia 826 y que pertenece al área no incorporada del condado Miami Dade.

If you have any questings, please contact the Mayor, councilmembers, or the City Manager.

After twenty years of the annexation process and approximately over $1 million in cost to the city, the city council at last night’s special meeting approved the Annexation Interlocal Agreement with the County by a 5-0 vote. The next step is for the Board of County Commissioners to discuss and approve the interlocal at their next board meeting in early November. The main issue of contention is the mitigation payment included in the agreement for all four cities. The cities will ask that the mitigation be removed so that we can lower the millage rate as much as possible. We have committed to a rate next year of 3.7000 mills, assuming there is no mitigation. We have also committed to keep reducing millage in future years for all of our residents and business owners in our city and the new annex area. At this rate, we are proposing a multi-year, multi-million-dollar capital investment plan for the annex area to include police, a new police substation, stormwater improvements to reduce flooding, street and road improvements, landscaping and much more. We will provide additional updates as we move along the process over the next few weeks.

If you have any questions, please contact the Mayor, councilmembers, or the City Manager.
