In 1979, Miami Beach's Art Deco Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It comprises hundreds of hotels, apartments and other structures erected between 1923 and 1943. It is the city in the United States most immediately threatened by climate-driven sea-level rise and flooding. Extensive, expensive, and sometimes controversial efforts are underway to address the problem so far as possible. The city is governed by a ceremonial mayor and six commissioners. Although the mayor runs commission meetings, the mayor and all commissioners have equal voting power and are elected by popular election. The mayor serves for terms of two years with a term limit of three terms and commissioners serve for terms. of four years and are limited to two terms. An appointed city manager is responsible for administration of the city. The City Clerk and the City Attorney are also appointed officials. In the early years of the 20th century by the Collins/Pancoast family, the Lummus brothers (bankers from Miami) and Indianapolis entrepreneur Carl Fisher, the beach was only the destination for day-trips by ferry.

History

The first structure to be built on this uninhabited oceanfront was the Biscayne House of Refuge, constructed in 1876. The City of Miami was established in 1896 with the arrival of the railroad and developed further as a port. By 1915, three hotels and two bathhouses had been erected, an aquarium built, and an 18-hole golf course landscaped. In 1925, the Collins Bridge was replaced by the Venetian Causeway, described as "a series of drawbridges and renamed the Venetson Causeway. The Miami Beach peninsula became an island in April 1925 when Haulover Cut was created. The man-made territory of the Isle of Belle Isle, Isle of Normandy, and Isle of Sunset Islands, much of which is now Miami Beach, was created in the 1920s and '30s by dredging and filling operations. It is now 2,800 acres in size, with a population of about 100,000. It was once a 1600-acre, jungle-matted sand bar three miles out in the Atlantic, it grew to 2, 800 acres when dredging, filling and dredging operations were completed in the 1950s and 1960s. It has been called Miami Beach since the early 20th century, when it was first incorporated as a town by the Lummus brothers and later as a city by the City. It became Miami Beach in 1915 when the Town of Miami Beach was chartered on March 26, 1915, and it became a City in 1917.

Geography

Miami Beach encounters tidal flooding of certain roads during the annual king tides. Traditional sea level rise and storm mitigation measures including sea walls and dykes, such as those in the Netherlands and New Orleans, may not work in South Florida due to the porous nature of the ground and limestone beneath the surface. Some areas of southern Florida, especially Miami Beach, are beginning to engineer specifically for sealevel rise and other potential effects of climate change. This includes a five-year, US$500 million project for the installation of 60 to 80 pumps, building of taller sea walls, planting of red mangrove trees along the sea walls. Some residents worry that the efforts will not be sufficient to successfully adapt to rising sea levels and wish the city had pursued a more aggressive plan. Others yet have voiced concerns that the plan protects big-money interests in Miami Beach. Some streets and sidewalks were raised about 2.5 ft (0.76 m) over previous levels; the four initial pumps installed in 2014 are capable of pumping 4,000 US gallons per minute. Pump failures such as during construction or power outages, including a Tropical Storm Emily-related rain flood on August 1, 2017, can cause great unexpected flooding. Combined with the higher roads and sidewalks, this leaves unchanged properties relatively lower and prone to inundation. The city has a total area of 18.7 sq mi (48.5 km²), of which 7.0sq mi (18.2 km²) is land and 11.7squ mi (30.2km²) (62.37%) is water.

Climate

Miami Beach has a tropical monsoon climate (Am) Like much of Florida, there is a wet and dry season in Miami Beach. Proximity to the moderating influence of the Atlantic gives Miami Beach lower high temperatures and higher lows than inland areas of Florida. Miami Beach is in hardiness zone 11a, with an annual mean minimum temperature of 43 °F (6 °C) Miami Beach has never reported temperatures below 0 °C (32 °F).Miami Beach's location on the Atlantic Ocean, near its confluence with the Gulf of Mexico, make it extraordinarily vulnerable to hurricanes and tropical storms. Miami has experienced several direct hits from major hurricanes in recorded weather history. The area has seen indirect contact from hurricanes: 1945 Homestead Hurricane, Betsy (1965), Inez (1966), Andrew (1992), Irene (1999), Michelle (2001), Katrina (2005), Wilma (2005) and Irma (2017). The area also has been the site of several tropical cyclones, such as Wilma in 2005 and Andrew in 1992. The island location of Miami Beach, however, creates fewer convective thunderstorms, so Miami Beach receives less rainfall in a given year than neighboring areas such as Miami and Fort Lauderdale. The tropical rainy season runs from May through October, when showers and late day thunderstorms are common. The dry season is from November through April, when few showers, sunshine, and low humidity prevail. The average temperature for Miami Beach for the past decade has been 43 °C.
