    2         A resolution recognizing Miami Shores Village on the

    7  including William Henry Hunt Gleason, and
    8         WHEREAS, the community of Biscayne, as it was then known,
    9  often served as the meeting place of the then-Dade County
   10  commission and hosted visitors like Julia Tuttle, who is known
   11  as the “Mother of Miami,” and
   12         WHEREAS, in the 1920s, Miami Shores Village was developed
   13  over the footprint of the community of Biscayne and was dubbed

   15  Shoreland Company, as “America’s Mediterranean,” and
   16         WHEREAS, after the devastating hurricane of 1926, the New
   17  Miami Shores Corporation purchased the Shoreland Company’s
   18  holdings, and in January 1932, under the leadership of Roy H.
   19  Hawkins, won legislative approval of the charter of Miami Shores
   20  Village, and
   21         WHEREAS, today, Miami Shores Village retains many of its
   22  original characteristics, having tree-lined streets and wide
   23  roads, a downtown area, and well-maintained homes, and is known
   24  as “the Village Beautiful,” and
   25         WHEREAS, Miami Shores Village is led by Mayor MacAdam
   26  Glinn; Vice Mayor Sean Brady; council members Alice Burch,
   27  Jonathan Meltz, and Steven Zelkowitz; and Village Manager Tom
   28  Benton, NOW, THEREFORE,
   30  Be It Resolved by the Senate of the State of Florida:
   32         That Miami Shores Village is recognized on the occasion of
   33  the 86th anniversary of its incorporation.
