MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - The city of Miami Beach begins a series of weekly meetings about its plans for Urban Beach Weekend.

The meetings begin at 6 p.m. each Monday through May 13. They will be held in the city manager's large conference room at city hall.

In 2012, 321 arrests were made during Urban Beach Weekend.

"A lot of those traffic loops really did help the traffic coming in and out of the city," said Nannette Rodriguez with the city of Miami Beach. "We also implemented license tag readers on the causeways. We had DUI checkpoints. All of that really affected, positively, the traffic coming into Miami Beach."
