Invest in Miramar

As a Miramar Business, your investment in Miramar began when you made the City home.  Beyond infrastructure, a key investment is “People.”   As a major employer with various facilities, the City of Miramar knows first-hand of this commitment.   A key part of the sustainability of our community’s economic growth comes from what opportunities exist ‘Right Here In Miramar”®  An instrumental way to do so is to empower our youth with ways that they can contribute to community while positioning ideas for  their respective future. The City of Miramar has established various Youth to Work programs that respond to fulfilling these opportunities. 

We encourage Business in Miramar to do the same.
