History

In the wake of the construction of I-95 in the late 1960s, many middle and upper income African American and West Indian Americanfamilies migrated from Miami neighborhoods such as Liberty City to what became Miami Gardens (then called "Norland" or "Norwood") asrestrictive covenants fell into disuse and mostly lower income blacks moved to the inner city neighborhoods surrounding Liberty Squareand Edison Courts.

Miami Gardens was incorporated on May 13, 2003. The city's neighborhoods of Andover, Bunche Park, Carol City, Lake Lucerne,Norland, Opa-locka North, and Scott Lake were previously unincorporated areas within Miami-Dade County.

In 2007, Mayor Shirley Gibson said that the city would no longer allow any low income housing developments; many residents blamed the developments for spreading crime and recreational drugs throughout the city. Around that time the city's tax revenues dropped to being the third lowest in Miami-Dade County.

In 2012, Oliver Gilbert, only the second mayor the City has had, proposed to form a Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA). CRAs are formed to remove “slum and blight,” to improve the physical environment of the city and to combat the social and economic problems typical of slum areas.CRAs are funded with property tax increases, which funds are used, in part, to stimulate private investment in the rehabilitation of the community. Once inaugurated, Mayor Gilbert expressed confidence that a CRA would have the effect of stimulating economic growth in Miami Gardens and proposed to establish one.
