The South Miami Hometown Plan

Victor Dover, Joe Kohl, and Mayor Philip Stoddard along with several DKP designers explain the key steps to downtown & main street revitalization based on their own success story.

The Hometown Plan for the City of South Miami is a downtown and main street revitalization project based on citizen participation, traditional town planning, and sustained economic development. Initiated over 16 years ago, the plan had been carried out through multiple changes in city administration and continues to be actively implemented today, with new streetscape improvements and infill buildings complimenting earlier improvements, creating a walkable, urban downtown for South Miami.
