NORTH MIAMI MAYOR DR. SMITH JOSEPH TO ACCEPT 2018 CITY’S BEACON AWARD FOR BUSINESS CLIMATE AND POLIC

North Miami, FL – 4/19/2018

North Miami Mayor, Dr. Smith Joseph, will receive the 2018 Beacon Award on behalf of the city he has dubbed, “The City on the Move.” The City of North Miami will be honored as the 2018 recipient of the Miami-Dade Beacon Council Award for Business Climate & Policy during the awards ceremony on Saturday, April 28.   

The Beacon Awards ceremony is hosted annually by the Beacon Council, Miami-Dade County’s official economic development partnership, which recognizes an individual, business, organization, or city that is achieving economic development excellence in various focus areas. The Business Climate and Policy category recognizes an organization or community that advances business policy solutions that facilitate economic development opportunities by reducing barriers to business growth. In 2017, the City of North Miami implemented several innovative economic development programs including its film incentives program and the Green Rehabilitation Grant, administered by the City’s Economic Development Manager, Sam Blatt.     

“Winning the 2018 Beacon Award for Business Climate and Policy is an honor, but it’s also a formal recognition that North Miami has progressed into a new era,” said Joseph. “North Miami is the ‘City on the Move,’ and we are working hard to implement innovative policies that promote economic development in ways that no other municipality in Miami-Dade has.”  

The 2018 Beacon Awards will take place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel.
