If there was one thing that took away from the visual appeal of this year's Miami International Boat Show, it was the dilapidated, graffiti-covered Miami Marine Stadium.
Now, the stadium may be getting a long-awaited restoration under a plan announced by Miami mayor Tomás Regalado last week.
As reported by the Miami Herald, Regalado announced during his annual State of the City address that he will soon introduce legislation to make sure that revenue generated by the Miami Marine Stadium Park will go toward the stadium. He also plans to include $3 million toward the stadium restoration in the city's 2017 budget.
Regalado credited the success of the Miami International Boat Show as being a key catalyst for the restoration of the stadium.
