Mission

  • Website

  • Social media (Facebook, Nextdoor)

  • Live-streaming of Village Council meetings via our Facebook page. Beginning in the spring of 2020, the Village Council meetings moved to Zoom. They have been held via Zoom ever since. Links to the recorded meetings can be found on the home page of this website.

  • Community outreach (direct contact with community organizations and attendance at community meetings)

  • Ambassador program (ambassadors are community members who take the lead on connecting with the Village Council on behalf of neighbors and neighborhood/community organizations)

Focus Areas

  • Online events calendar This calendar has not been regularly updated since the spring of 2020 because of Covid-19. Many community events are held virtually. When community events return to a somewhat normal pattern similar to before Covid, we will once again regularly update the calendar. All City of Miami public meetings are announced on the City's website here.

  • Coconut Grove Spotlight. In February 2020, the Village Council voted to support regular publication of the Coconut Grove Spotlight, an online resource with news and information about Coconut Grove. The Spotlight transitioned to become an independent publication in the fall of 2020. Learn more about the Spotlight, including how to sign up for delivery of the publication to your inbox, here.
