Hey y'all. Hialeah is throwing it's 50th birthday bash.

The last census puts the city population at 72,000. The high-rises are going up faster than we can find the cement! The commercial sector is strong, attracting all manner of real-estate and energy companies. Some offices are even relocating from the capital, New Paris. People are flocking to the city for sun and opportunity and the renowned healthcare and education services. More on the downtown area in the next post. (No room for the picture here...) Residents also recently welcomed the municipal zoo (outside picture) and the minor league AA Hialeah Hurricanes and their new ballpark (McComb Field) on county road 4444.

The HTA now reports bus ridership at 23,400/day bringing in $1.44 million per month (still $2.05/ride). The Southern Natchez authority has completely rebuilt the Hialeah Generating station with a new boiler house and stacks and gas-fired boilers. Iberville county has built an additional recycling centre to handle the increased demand and plans to centralize all waste management at the Hialeah site. Plainview Oil has increased capacity another 10% with a new atmospheric distillation plant. A gas pipeline has been built down the city limits to the port, along the existing crude pipe.

However, to the dismay of many, pollution and traffic problems have still not been solved. In another attempt to solve traffic issues on the West Side the Transportation authority along with NzDOT have finalized plans for Loop Highway 381 which includes widening and realigning Highway 38 to form a 38/381 multiplex around Dorval Airfield.
