Cutler Bay, historically called Cutler Ridge, is an incorporated town in Miami-Dade County, Florida from SW 184th Street (Eureka Dr) east of US-1 to the coast, and north of Black Point Marina, at 25°34′50″N 80°20′48″W / 25.58056°N 80.34667°W / 25.58056; -80.34667. As of the 2000 census, the area was known as the census-designated place of Cutler Ridge, which had a total population of 24,781.
In August 1992, the area was slammed by Hurricane Andrew. In August 2005, the area was hit with serious floods from Hurricane Katrina, which by radar estimates dropped over 20 inches or 500 mm of rainfall.
On January 11, 2005, residents on this unincorporated community voted to incorporate. In November 2005, residents adopted the municipal charter in which the fledgling city was renamed Cutler Bay. Both the current and former names were derived from the former town of Cutler, which existed at the turn of the century but was disincorporated during the depression. The actual location of Cutler was not within the current city limits of Cutler Bay, but was in fact two miles (3 km) to the north, east of the former Perrine and inside the boundaries of the current municipality of Palmetto Bay.
