Special Events



Andrew & the Phoenix: 2017 Tribute to City Staff

The story of Homestead is one of resilience—like a Phoenix rising out of the ashes. 25 years ago Hurricane Andrew devastated our city, but the community came back to rebuild stronger than ever. However, when things were finally looking up, a second storm came: the Great Recession. It left staff and residents reeling when property values dropped by more than half. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of staff, leaders, and residents Homestead is now in the midst of its next revitalization—rising once again from the ashes.



Together We Rise, 2017 State of the City

Together we grow, together we dream, together we are Homestead, and together we rise. This short film showcasing the 2017 state of our city brings you up to date on the exciting new developments of the past year and Homestead’s vision for a brighter future together.  Together We Rise features the people that contribute to Homestead’s success every day—from business owners to residents to City Staff and Elected Officials. Many of the accomplishments made in the past year were possible in part because of the May 2014 Bond Referendum, where voters showed overwhelming support for Downtown Homestead revitalization projects.


 


Downtown Homestead Press Conference


In a press conference hosted at the newly revitalized Seminole Theatre, the City of Homestead, joined by Congressman Curbelo, announced more than $7 million in federal funding needed for a major project in Downtown Homestead, which is central to the City's revitalization effort.  The project will include a Downtown Transit Center with a 1,000 space parking garage, a multi-screen movie theater, bowling alley, restaurant, and retail.

From project-to-project and building-to-building, there are exciting developments happening in and around Downtown Homestead that stimulate the economy and enhance cultural opportunities and quality of life. Part of this was made possible by May’s Bond Referendum, where voters showed overwhelming support for Downtown revitalization projects—a big reason why the premiere took place in the heart of Historic Downtown.
