City Mayor

Letter to Residents of Hialeah


Dear Residents,

The City of Hialeah is one of the fastest-growing cities in Miami-Dade County. We have been working persistently on many new and exciting projects for Hialeah and with the efforts of everyone involved; we are witnessing positive results throughout. We are proud of our community and we encourage you to stay and explore everything that we have to offer including a wide range of local businesses, services, and excellent recreation facilities. You will find that Hialeah is a wonderful place to live, work, raise a family, or retire.  It is a place that offers something for everyone.

I feel fortunate to be the Mayor of such a caring and progressive city and look forward to working with our City Council on initiatives that will carry us forward - initiatives that will allow us to prosper well into the future.

We are known as the "City of Progress," and that is what we continue to aim for; enhancing and placing Hialeah at the forefront of economic, cultural, social and educational development. In the east corridor, our city is seeing tremendous growth with a diverse combination of mixed-use development and enhancements to the city’s entertainment and nightlife opportunities. Across our city, we continue to invest in the infrastructure of our annexation area, which will secure the growth of commercial and residential developments for years to come. The city has a growing number of cultural and educational events occurring throughout, such as Art on Palm and Garden of the Arts, the revitalization of the John F. Kennedy Library, the enhancements of city entrances, which includes Don Quixote Plaza, and the newly installed art in public spaces.

We are constantly working on roadway improvements and beautification throughout the city's major arteries, as well as residential areas while stimulating residents to improve their own homes and jointly develop a more astonishing image of our city.

Safety and security remains our objective for the City of Hialeah. The men and women of the Hialeah Police Department are committed to serving the residents of our community every day. Hialeah still has one of the lowest crime rates in the State of Florida and throughout the United States.  

I look forward to continued progress, with various initiatives set to continue improving and expanding our existing programs and services for our residents. In Hialeah, we are family and I hope to see you all at our events throughout the year.

Thank you,

Carlos Hernandez, Mayor
City of Hialeah
