City of Miami, Florida Resolution on Climate Gentrification

November 5, 2018

On November 5, 2018, the Mayor of Miami signed a Resolution directing city staff to research the effects of “climate gentrification” on low-income communities that are inland at higher elevations, and to explore ways to stabilize property taxes to reduce displacement. The City of Miami, Florida is seeing high rates of sea-level rise and increasing incidence of nuisance flooding in low-lying parts of the city. As a result, higher elevation areas of the city, which house many of the city’s lower and moderate income communities, are seeing greater development pressures, which is affecting property values and taxes.

Reaching Higher Ground: Avenues to Secure and Manage New Land for Communities Displaced by Climate Change

May 2017

From the Center for Progressive Reform, this paper provides an analysis of the legal, policy, and corporate tools to acquire and govern land to relocate a community. It presents the most promising approaches that could feed into workable strategies for land acquisition, with the aim of protecting people and property in the short term, promoting climate resiliency in the long-term, and maintaining important cultural and economic assets. A number of case studies are included, many of which are focused on Native Americans and Alaskan Natives, since sea level rise and in turn coastal relocation is a present issue among these communities.
