An article in Miami Today states that representatives of FIU, the Dade County Youth Fair, and Miami Dade Park and Recreation Deparatment have formed a taskforce to look into viable alternatives sites for the Youth Fair to move to, in order to allow FIU to move into its 86 acre location just south of the eastern portion of MMC. Althought this move has been mentioned and talked about for the last 10-15 years at least, this is the first time since I've been following FIU, that an actual collaborative committee or group of people from all parties involved (FIU, Miami Dade County, and Youth Fair) are working together with a real possibility of it happening. It is still a longshot at this moment as this is just an "exploratory" task force now, but at least it is moving, and all parties seem to be on it.

Way to go, FIU! It is paramount for FIU's future to grow in space in order to accomodate the amazing growth expected to come in the next 5-10 years. Hope it happens, and that it happens sooner rather than later.
