REPORT: Commissioner Sosa served as Chair during consideration of the foregoing item as previously requested by Commissioner Rolle, and opened the item for public hearing. The following persons appeared before the committee in support of the foregoing proposed resolution: Mr. Bradford Brown, President Miami Dade Branch of the NAACP. He urged that the provisions of the resolution be well defined to ensure that it reached the income levels found within the Scott-Carver project and that it allow Section 8 homeownership. He asked that regularly scheduled meetings be held on the progress of Hope VI. Ms. Lottie Mitchell-Hines (phonetic), 7631 NW 17 Avenue, President of Carver and representative of Scott-Carver. An unidentified member of the public appeared before the committee, and thanked Commissioner Rolle for meeting with her. She requested to meet with him again to discuss additional units for the Scott-Carver project. Reverend Bennett thanked Commissioner Rolle and the committee for their concern and efforts towards the Hope VI project. Mr. Bud Gelled (phonetic) 6147 SW 152nd Street, appeared before the committee in support of the resolution and suggested minor modifications to the resolution. Dr. Marietta Mischia, Chair of the Miami-Dade County Black Affairs Advisory Board. Mr. Arnold Brandish, Assistant Principal D.A. Dorsey Educational Center. He invited the residents in the Scott-Carver community to take advantage and participate in the training programs offered at the Educational Center. Ms. Cynthia Jones, 1065 NW 60 Street, appeared before the committee and expressed concern regarding the Hope VI displaced residents, she inquired what the criteria would be to allow these residents to return. She asked whether the homes would be affordable for those individuals without Section 8 vouchers and expressed concern that it would be difficult to qualify for the U.S. HUD Homeownership program. Commissioner Rolle asked Ms. Jones to submit her concerns in writing and he would forward them to the MDHA for a response. Mr. Rene Rodriguez, MDHA Director, noted the next Scott-Carver community task force meeting would be held on May 14, 2003, from 12:30 p.m.- 1:45 p.m., at the Miami-Dade Housing Agency located at 1407 NW 7th Street. He noted lunch would be provided. Ms. Litta Rodriguez, President American Civil Liberties Union Greater Miami Chapter, appeared before the committee on behalf of the ACLU. She asked the following questions: . whether $6 million was sufficient to refurbish 150 units . why this resolution did not include a right of first refusal to purchase the new units . whether the Scott-Carver residents would be able to afford to purchase these units. Ms. Rodriguez stated that unless there was a provision to make Section 8 homeownership a part of the project, it would be impossible for citizens with a median income of seven to ten thousand dollars a year to be able to afford these units. Commissioner Morales stated that he had to leave today's meeting early, and noted for the record that he was in support of the foregoing resolution. He asked that his vote be registered. Mr. Paul Perdue, (phonetic), Program Executive for the Hope VI Scott-Carver community, noted there was a Section 8 homeownership program that was underway and 30 individuals from the Scott-Carver community were identified as recipients of that program. He noted there were other homeownership programs available, however citizens needed to attend the meetings to understand the processes involved. There being no other persons to appear in connection with this matter, the public hearing was closed. Chairperson Sosa commended Commissioner Rolle on his endeavor and thanked the Scott-Carver residents for their support at today's discussion. Commissioner Sorenson urged the Scott-Carver community to take advantage of the educational opportunities available at the D.A. Dorsey Educational Center in their community. Upon concluding their discussion, the committee by motion duly made, seconded and carried forwarded the foregoing resolution to the Board of County Commissioners with a favorable recommendation.
