Team Effort: Leaders Come Together to Improve Downtown

Miami Today
Corporate Partner Bruce Jay Colan was quoted in a December 24 Miami Today article titled, "Team Effort: Leaders Come Together to Improve Downtown."

The article reports on the efforts of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce to help Miami's downtown reach its potential as a thriving neighborhood where residents can live, work and play. Mr. Colan, who serves as Chairman of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, has made this issue a primary goal of the Chamber, specifically pointing out the need for more uniformed police officers and a revised traffic plan. Additionally, he seeks to preemptively address needs related to the construction of the new port tunnel. "The bottom line is we've got the port tunnel going but it's not yet a real issue," he said. "One of the things we've got to do and will do is to work with the users of the port to ameliorate any potential adverse effects on [them] and surrounding property owners."
