Board of County Commissioners 12/3/2002 10A3 SUBSTITUTE Adopted P
REPORT: Following Vice Chairperson Sorenson's comments regarding the need to conduct a joint meeting with the Miami-Dade County School Board that should be done on a regularly basis and the requirement according to Florida Statutes, Assistant County Attorney Dennis Kerbel stated an interlocal agreement was currently being drafted with coordination by the Department of Planning and Zoning and the School Board along with the municipalities involved. He noted this agreement would be presented to the Board at a later date. Mr. Kerbel concluded by stating a joint meeting would be scheduled with the School Board. Ms. Truly Burton, representing the South Florida Builders Association, appeared before the Board and requested that the Board include in the report the number of new students that are generated from existing homes. She stated the Association would assistance in this effort. Commissioner Seijas indicated the interlocal agreement referenced by the attorney would be considered by the Environment and Governmental Operations Committee prior to being presented to the Board. Department of Planning and Zoning Director Dianne O'Quinn Williams stated the interlocal agreement was required to be completed by March 2003 and the agreement would be presented to the Committee. Commissioner Moss stated the foregoing substitute item addressed the concern noted by Ms. Burton in subsection 3 that directed the County Manager to determine whether new residential developments in fact generate new students from outside the County or whether the students in the new developments previously lived elsewhere within the County. In connection with the foregoing resolution, all Board members present requested to be listed as cosponsors of the item.

TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MANAGER TO STUDY AND REPORT ON THE IMPACT OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF ADDITIONAL HOUSING UNITS ON PUBLIC SCHOOLS

BODY
WHEREAS, the information provided by the Miami-Dade County School Board in the land-use process indicates that the County's public schools are overcrowded; and
WHEREAS, the addition of new housing units throughout the County could generate additional students that would impact the school system, and on-going approvals of development in some areas could have greater adverse impacts than approvals in other areas,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the County Manager shall conduct a study and provide a report to this Board on the impact of the development of additional housing units on the public schools throughout Miami-Dade County. The report shall address both on-going development of residential housing units and development approved by Community Zoning Appeals Boards and this Board in the last two fiscal years. In conducting the study, the County Manager shall: (1) request that the Miami-Dade County School Board provide information about the rates at which new residential developments generate additional students for elementary, middle, and high schools; (2) request that the School Board provide information about the progress of new school construction and identify new schools that will be available to accept students in the near future; and (3) request the cooperation of the School Board and other entities in order to determine whether the students generated by the residential development are new students from outside the County, or whether these are students who reside in Miami-Dade County whose families may have been renting, living with relatives, etc., to facilitate a more accurate estimation of school overcrowding.
