Sewer System Coming To Miami Shores With Promises of New Restaurants

Miami Shores, the wealthy village wedged between Little Haiti and North Miami, is poised for a commercial renaissance along its main downtown corridor on NE Second Ave., as a long awaited sewer system is planned to be installed in the next two years, according to a municipal official.

Tom Benton, the village manager said in an interview that he expects construction to begin by January 2015. From there, it could be up to 15 months before the new system is complete.

The sewer is critical to making Miami Shores a viable economic district, says Todd Leoni, who owns two buildings on the street.
