The Mayor, The Commission and The Community City of Opa-locka Has An International Appeal

While The City of Opa-locka may only be comprised of 4.2 miles, it has an International appeal and outreach, which is accompanied by a reputation for having some of the most beautiful Moorish Revival Architecture in the Western Hemisphere, as well as one of the best locations for businesses to take advantage of tax incentive programs to increase profit and promote rejuvenation.

For years, the City of Opa-locka has been host to visitors from France, Thai, Alhambra and other “far-away” places. Recently, the Mayor and the Commissioners were invited by members of the Opa-locka Paraguayan Community to go “home” with them for a visit to Paraguay. Since this was impossible for now, the Paraguayan Association honored Mayor Taylor on Sunday, May 1, 2011 at Florida Memorial University, for providing assistance to the Hispanic community in Opa-locka where about 14 families from Paraguay currently reside. The main focus of the event was to celebrate the 200 Paraguay Bicentenario; 1811-2011. The association would like to build a tighter relationship between the City of Opa-locka and the people of Paraguay.

On May 19, 2011, also seeking to build sister relationships with various U.S. Cities, but in particular, create a strong Economic Development with the City of  Opa-locka, were his Majesty Nii Dr. Kpobi Tettey Tsuru III and Queen  Doris Pobbee from La Accra, Ghana. The two sides discussed recycling and other areas of common interest.
