Annexation hearing for West Miami-Dade cities is canceled


Special to The Miami Herald

Miami-Dade County officials have abruptly canceled a public annexation hearing scheduled for Thursday, May 16.

The county's land-use committee had planned to discuss annexation of land near Miami International Airport by the cities of Doral, Medley, Virginia Gardens and Miami Springs.

"The item has been deferred to a future committee meeting," a county spokesperson said.

She added that deferment happens when either there are changes to the legislation or more research is required on the project.

There is no future meeting date at this time, the official said.
