Today we want to highlight that a group within the city that is making an impact on the preservation of the art of architecture of our city. Art and the history or the design of our city is something to celebrate. This past weekend marked Art Deco Weekend and we want to give recognition to one of the organizations that made this event possible.

Miami Design Preservation League (MDPL) is a non-profit organization devoted to preserving, protecting, and promoting the cultural, social, economic, environmental and architectural integrity of the Miami Beach Architectural Historic District and all other areas of the City of Miami Beach where historic preservation is a concern.
The MDPL Advocacy Committee suggests these priorities for MDPL advocacy activities:
  • Preserve and protect the historical and architectural integrity of the Miami Beach Architectural District, both of its individual buildings and of the district as a whole;
  • Support the historic preservation process put in place by the City of Miami Beach and the City’s enforcement of the outcomes of that process in any area “where historic preservation is a concern.”
  • Propose and support changes in the City’s historic preservation process and land use policies when necessary to carry out and fulfill the mission statement;
  • Propose and support changes in Florida and national policy when necessary to carry out and fulfill the mission statement;
  • Preserve and protect historical, architectural, and environmental resources in other areas of Miami Beach, especially when designated as local historic districts by the City of Miami Beach, but including any area “where historic preservation is a concern.”
  • Act to support residents and property owners, in current and potential historic districts, when citizens act to preserve, protect and promote the historic, architectural, cultural, social, economic, and environmental integrity of any area “where historic preservation is a concern.”
