Miami Gardens residents have been speaking out about the Miami Dolphins’ recent agreement to host Formula One racing events at the Hard Rock Stadium starting in 2021. 

Miami-Dade County Commissioner Barbara J. Jordan, who represents District 1, which includes Miami Gardens, is one of them. She says she doesn’t want to stop the race but thinks it’s not the best idea for a “bedroom community” or a more residential area.

When an attorney representing the Miami Dolphins took the podium Wednesday during a meeting of the Miami Gardens City Council, he pointed out that the major events held at Hard Rock Stadium are turning the community into “the nation’s entertainment capital.”

That’s when a resident blurted out: “We don’t want it!”

That sentiment was resounding: Miami Gardens residents — or at least about 30 who addressed the council Wednesday — want nothing to do with a proposal that would bring an annual Formula One racing event to the stadium and a public road outside of it.

Gigi Stetler may have a lot of reasons not to help those in need. More than 30 years ago, she was stabbed multiple times after trying to help a homeless man. But that desire to reach out to strangers remained a part of her core.

After Hurricanes Andrew and Katrina, Stetler sent RVs to the areas impacted to help families and workers keep a roof over their heads until homes could be rebuilt. Stetler, who owns RVs of Broward, was the first woman to break into the RV sales business as an owner.

Miami will be in the Super Bowl next year regardless if the Dolphins win or lose. It’s all but guaranteed.

The game returns to South Florida for the 11th time in 2020.

It will have been a decade since the last Super Bowl was played here. The game, and all the fanfare surrounding it, has gotten bigger. Supporters say the economics of the game remain strong. And the Dolphin's gamble to renovate the stadium worked.
