Miami is planning a new art fair to help reclaim the Wynwood district by attracting a flood of visitors in October, according to the Miami Herald:
During a community meeting Monday, Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado said that an estimated 120,000 people will be visiting Wynwood during the three-day festival. The fair will be paid for by private sponsors, not by the city, according to the mayor.
“The goal is to eliminate crime, and the most important thing is to get rid of the idea that [this] is not a safe neighborhood,” Regalado said.
