The Miami Worldcenter Held a Job Fair for Hundreds of Residents in Overtown

by Sep Niakan | July 22, 2015

 

Developers held a job fair in Overtown, in light of the city commission voting on a Community Development District for the Miami Worldcenter.

About 500 Miami residents were present, looking for opportunities to work, according to developers of the Miami Worldcenter. The residents living in Southeast Overtown, Park West, and the Omni Community Redevelopment areas had the top priority, followed by the Overtown community, then certain zip codes within the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County. The purpose was to fill the many jobs that will be necessary for the maintenance and operations of the Worldcenter project.

If the commission approves the creation of the Community Development District, they would allow developers to use the property taxes to make infrastructure improvements and issue bonds.
