The MiMo Biscayne Association is a non-profit corporation formed in 2007, for the purpose of protecting, promoting and preserving the MiMo (Miami Modern) architecture and the 1950’s ambiance of Biscayne Boulevard. The group formed at the time when road reconstruction was about to begin and filled a void in the community by giving support to the business/property owners while including the surrounding residents in the revitalization of their boulevard. This group of hardworking volunteers with no paid staff is comprised of residents, preservationists and business/property owners. The MiMo Association has no funding source of its own and is dependent on membership fees, grants, and donations to do their good work. It has worked on many legislative projects for the district itself like the Specialty MiMo Liquor Ordinance and other historic incentives such as Chapter 23 – the Historic Zoning Code – and others that help the entire historic business community.
