The mayor of Miami, Tomas Regalado, announced Thursday a new $1 million project to enhance Calle Ocho.
The project will consist of extending the plaza where the iconic Domino Park is located on Southwest 15th Avenue to the north side of Eighth Street. Also, the mayor has plans for building new sidewalks, planting trees along the sidewalk to provide shade for pedestrians and a new innovative trash can. Yes, trash can.
The trash can displays local artists’ art on its side and is immune to graffiti—the first of its kind.
