BUILDING A MOVEMENT FOR PLAY: NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION KABOOM! NAMES NORTH MIAMI AMONG 217 "PLAYFUL CITY USA" COMMUNITIES
Communities Recognized for Prioritizing Play for Children
With research proving play is critical to the overall well-being of children, 217 cities and towns, including North Miami, earned recognition from national non-profit KaBOOM! as 2013 Playful City USA communities for their efforts to give children the childhood they deserve by providing ample opportunities for play. Today’s generation of children play less than any previous generation despite the vast benefits of play. The Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics reports that play is essential to the social, emotional, cognitive and physical well-being of children.
Sponsored by the Humana Foundation, Playful City USA is a national program from KaBOOM! that celebrates and promotes local policies that increase play opportunities for children and is a key platform in combating the lack of play among children.
KaBOOM!, the national non-profit organization dedicated to giving kids the childhood they deserve by bringing play to those who need it most, created Playful City USA in 2007 to help local governments address the lack of play and it is through mayors, city council members, parks and recreation departments, school districts and community leaders that the program succeeds in benefitting children.
“Kids need to play actively, every day, at home, in school and in their communities, yet play is disappearing,” said Darell Hammond, Founder and CEO of KaBOOM! and author of New York Times Best Seller A Movement to Save Play. “Children spend nearly eight hours a day in front of a screen; almost half of all poor students are deprived of recess; and to make matters worse, only one in five children live within walking distance of a park. Playful City USA communities like North Miami are creating innovative programs and initiatives and deserve recognition because of their efforts to give kids the childhood they deserve and best prepare them for their future.”
Hailing from 43 states, the 217 Playful City USA honorees range in size from seven-time honorees such as San Francisco and Spartanburg, S.C., to first-time recipient Ellsworth, Kan. (population: 3,100). These Playful City USA communities are making a commitment to play and physical activity by developing unique local action plans to increase the quantity and quality of play in their community.
Each of the 2013 Playful City USA communities demonstrated creative commitments to addressing the lack of play among children. Playful City USA celebrates and highlights these unique initiatives developed by communities across the country. A primary goal of Playful City USA is to encourage cities and towns to share ideas, concepts and programs in an effort to increase play opportunities for children.
KaBOOM! selected North Miami for its outstanding dedication to play. North Miami is working to making communities playful for people of all ages. The city has focused on making the community more accessible via bicycles to encourage healthier lifestyles and create easier access to local playgrounds and recreation centers.

The City of North Miami is in the final phase of upgrades to the utility billing process.
Due to the complexity of
this process, which includes data transfer from an antiquated system into our
new system, the implementation of new cost codes that went into effect in
October 2012, and data testing to ensure for quality, billing is delayed. We are making every effort to issue bills as
expeditiously as possible.
In light of the delay, it is
possible for utility customers to receive bills for different quarters
back-to-back. Each bill has a 45-day
payment which assists customers to schedule out their bill payments. The City will work with utility customers in
good standing to accommodate payment plans where possible.
Following these upgrades,
water customers will be able to create an online account, allowing for service
enhancements such as online payments and access to a variety of account
Billing Progress: As of April 1, 2013, we are currently processing the bills for the month of December 2012.

Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP3) funds in the amount of $1,173,374.00
to facilitate the purchase and rehabilitation of foreclosed and abandoned
properties that might otherwise become sources of abandonment and blight within
the community. The City amended the 2010

amending the 2010 Action Plan to add Target Area (4, which also incorporates

bordered by NW 17 Avenue on the west, to NE 16 Avenue on the East, up to
the City’s Northern limits at NE 149 Street on the North, to NW

7, 2012. A copy of the amendment is located at the Office of the

for residential households. If you live in a single family home, duplex or
townhouse, you receive this service weekly. The program allows the City to

possible. Rewards such as discounts at local supermarkets – including Publix
and Winn Dixie – coupons for household items, and discounts for local
entertainment, including Zoo Miami and Miami Seaquarium.
The RecycleBank program is operated at no additional cost to
the City, it is simply the rewards component of our curbside recycling service.

ultimately save the City money on garbage service.
