Civil and Municipal - Jan 22

34 CIVIL AND MUNICIPAL VOLUME 3, ISSUE 1 FLORIDA K ey Biscayne, Florida truly is an “island paradise.” Like the village’s frequent nickname suggests, Key Biscayne is a utopia of sandy beaches, stunning ocean views, and lush natural reserves, all while providing the modern services and amenities to meet its residents’ many needs. The village fluctuates between 14,000 and 17,000 residents due to many people visiting for vacation, though the demographic is steadily changing to welcome more permanent and diverse families and residents to the area. “The term ‘Island Paradise’ seems like a cliché, but it’s pretty much what everyone calls the Key because it really is just that,” says Tatyana Chiocchetti, Director of the Key Biscayne Chamber of Commerce. “We have everything you could possibly want: Doctors, schools, over 50 restaurants, boutiques, beaches and parks, and a wonderful variety of outdoor fitness options. It’s an all-encompassing small village next to a large metropolitan city.” Village Manager Steve AT A GLANCE KEY BISCAYNE, FLORIDA WHAT: A unique and popular village island of 17,000 WHERE: 5 miles and 20 minutes east of Miami, FL WEBSITE: A touch of paradise
