Early Implementation Success

Seven-County Transportation Model

This is a valuable project for the counties and cities of the region as they will not have to pay to update the model next year when some of the region’s TPOs/MPOs must begin their 2040 Regional Long Range Transportation Plans.
This is a project done for all seven counties that identified inundation for one, two, and three-foot rises in sea level using the latest inundation models and GIS technology. This is work done at no cost to the counties and will enhance their ability to address potential impacts of sea level rise (accomplished through extensive County staff participation and cooperation).

Climate Compact Seven County Inundation Assessment

This is a project done for all seven counties that identified inundation for one, two, and three-foot rises in sea level using the latest inundation models and GIS technology. This is work done at no cost to the counties and will enhance their ability to address potential impacts of sea level rise (accomplished through extensive County staff participation and cooperation).

Regional Data Warehouse

This is the most comprehensive data base for the region ever provided to the public and private sector. It will be accessible at no cost to local government. It provides a one-stop shop for data that will be useful in conducting local government and private sector business and identifying potential economic development opportunities – saving time and money. Better data should lead to better decisions. It also serves as another way of advertising that the region is open for business.

Fiber Optic Agreement With FEC Industries & Seven County Resolution

This Seven50 project will ensure the region has sufficient fiber optic capacity to grow the health care, bio/medical science, and transportation logistic sectors of our economy and will put the County and the Region in a better position to compete with the rest of the country and world. 

FDOT, SFRTA, FEC INDUSTRIES COMMUTER RAIL AGREEMENT

This Seven50 effort, brought together the region’s two largest transportation planning organizations and Florida East Coast Industries. The purpose was to set in motion negotiations for reintroducing commuter and express passenger rail services of all kinds on the FEC railway, opening up the opportunity for passenger rail service between Miami to Sebastian and beyond.

FLORIDA’S STRATEGIC PLAN FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

Early Seven50 work on future trends, data collection and policy development provided the Florida Department of Economic Development (DEO) the basis for including goals, objectives and strategies benefiting Southeast Florida in their recent strategic plan. As such, the Seven50 effort is recognized by DEO as a “best practice” and is featured in their strategic plan.
