The grant, awarded to the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, will pay for national consultants and experts in urban planning to shape future projects for the Arsht Center’s Town Square Neighborhood masterplan in partnership with Miami-Dade County and Miami-Dade Public Schools. High on the priority list are green spaces and parking.

The award is one of 66 Our Town grants totaling $5.073 million and spanning 38 states.
