Board of County Commissioners 3/1/2005 10A3 Adopted P

Regional Transportation Committee 2/10/2005 2A Forwarded to BCC with a favorable recommendation P
REPORT: Commissioner Heyman noted the intent of the foregoing proposed resolution was to communicate with residents and business owners regarding construction projects. She stated the cost associated with communication was minimal and the benefits were tremendous. Commissioner Moss noted this recommendation was submitted by Mr. Henry Givens, his appointee to the Citizens Independent Transportation Trust. Commissioner Sosa asked that the Fiscal Impact be attached to this resolution when it was forwarded for consideration by the County Commission. Commissioner Heyman stated the cost would be minimal because Miami-Dade County had its own communication and media system and its own Public Information Office. Chairman Gimenez stated the intent of the proposed resolution was to ensure adequate communication between the County and businesses impacted by major construction projects. Commissioner Rolle requested that Public Works Director Ari Rivera submit a proposal to the Citizens’ Independent Transportation Trust (CITT) to determine whether proceeds from the transit surtax funds could be used for businesses that may be negatively impacted by roadway construction projects. Mr. George Navarrete, Assistant Director, Miami-Dade Transit, appeared before the Committee and explained that the Federal Government required an extensive public involvement program during the construction and the planning and design phases of projects. He referred to the activities being undertaken during construction on the South Dade busway, and noted MDT staff was educating businesses along the South Dade busway on how to apply for small business loans. Commissioner Moss stated that through the efforts of MDT and the Office of Capital Improvements Constructions Coordination, businesses along the South Dade busway routes were advised of available loan programs. He noted some people had indicated that the loans were not helpful to them and he suggested that the County Commission may need to revisit this issue.
