Information Requests

Request for Improvements

Any resident, business owner or even a visitor can request that a particular street or streets within a neighborhood be inspected for improvements. Streets and/or neighborhood improvements that are not already included in the Capital Plan will be identified for scoping and cost estimate. After completion of said estimate, the street will be rated based upon the level of distress and prioritized. Should funding become available, then said request will become a project with a project-number and funding source.

To request an improvement in your street, contact our Public Relations Agents directly at askmiamicapital@miamigov.com . Provide them with your contact information, address, a brief description of your request and any pictures and/or videos that will assist us in assessing your improvements request.

Public Records Requests

Per Section 119.011 of the Florida Statutes, anyone can request information regardless of the physical form. Please note that per the Public Records Act, the City of Miami will charge a fee or the actual cost for materials or supplies used to duplicate records. The City may also collect a reasonable service charge when a request to inspect or copy Public Records requires the extensive use of technology resources and/or the extensive use of clerical or supervisory assistance.

Kindly email the Law Department (publicrecords@miamigov.com) and describe the records and/or information you are requesting and they will forward your request to the correct department. If the request is related to a OCI project, then feel free to contact our Public Relations Agents directly for prompt service at askmiamicapital@miamigov.com.

Should the records exist and can be accessed, we will produce all of the records, no matter the size. All records will be forwarded to the Law Department for review of any exemptions the record may have prior to releasing it. If you would like to file an anonymous request, you may do so as your name is not required for the City to process the request. Finally, please be aware that there is no duty to create a new public record. We will only provide the information as it exists.

Media Requests

If you are submitting a request for information or an interview request with a member from the Office of Capital Improvements & Transportation, kindly email the Office of Communications (communications@miamigov.com). In your email, include the questions you would like answered as well as the deadline and their office will forward your request to the correct department for prompt response.

If the request is related to an OCI project, and you are requesting an interview instead of having the questions answered, then OCI will coordinate the scheduling accordingly with the appropriate OCI staff member and notify the Office of Communications on your behalf.
