TITLE
RESOLUTION APPROVING A PLANNING INITIATIVE TO EXPLORE THE FEASIBILITY OF LOCATING A HOMELAND SECURITY INTERAGENCY COMPLEX ON A PORTION OF THE PROPERTY LOCATED ADJACENT TO THE HOMESTEAD AIR RESERVE STATION TO BE TRANSFERRED TO MIAMI-DADE COUNTY UNDER A NO-COST ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CONVEYANCE AND TO REPORT FINDINGS TO THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS WITHIN 90 DAYS

BODY
WHEREAS, the attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, and the warnings issued by the United States Department of Justice and F.B.I. regarding potential acts of terrorism demand a Homeland Security Interagency Complex for more thorough vigilance and planning by local government for the safety of Miami-Dade County residents;
WHEREAS, Miami-Dade County is currently negotiating with the Department of the Air Force for the transfer of 595 acres of surplus property located adjacent to the Homestead Air Reserve Base ("HARB");
WHEREAS, the property will be transferred on the basis of the no-cost Economic Development Conveyance (EDC) application that was submitted by Miami-Dade County in December of 2001 and approved by the Air Force pursuant to the Third Supplemental Record of Decision issued by the Air Force on February 14, 2003;
WHEREAS, such a center would make appropriate use for land that, due to its adjacency to the HARB airfield and other land use restrictions, is very limited;
WHEREAS, government and other quasi-military uses of the land could prove to be more compatible with HARB and could benefit from the assets located on the Base;
WHEREAS, HARB already has a history of interagency activity as it currently hosts other federal operations including the U.S. Customs Miami Air and Marine Branch drug enforcement air interdiction mission and the Air Force Reserve's "Hurricane Hunters" weather reconnaissance mission;
WHEREAS, in an effort to properly plan the use of the land in the event the County is successful in its current negotiations with the Air Force and in the event grant funds are allocated to Miami-Dade County, it is recommended that a planning effort to determine the feasibility of use of this property as an interagency center should be commenced.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the County Manager is directed to explore the feasibility of locating a Homeland Security Interagency Complex on a portion of the property located adjacent to the Homestead Air Reserve Station to be transferred to Miami Dade County under a no-cost Economic Development Conveyance application and to report findings to the Board of County Commissioners within 90 days.
