TITLE
RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE COUNTY MANAGER TO EXAMINE POSSIBLE LOCATIONS AND FUNDING SOURCES TO ERECT A STATUE OF JULIA TUTTLE, FOUNDER OF MIAMI, IN A PUBLIC SPACE IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN MIAMI

BODY
WHEREAS, Julia Tuttle was a Miami pioneer and visionary who was the first to recognize Miamiís potential as a great city; and
WHEREAS, Julia Tuttle convinced railroad magnate Henry Flagler to extend his railroad to Miami, which led to Miamiís incorporation as a city in 1896; and
WHEREAS, Julia Tuttle is considered the founder of Miami and it is very likely that no other major American city can claim that it was founded by a woman; and
WHEREAS, presently there is no statue, historical maker or public recognition of Julia Tuttleís importance to Miami; and
WHEREAS, the Miami-Dade Commission for Women and the City of Miami Commission on the Status of Women are proposing that a statue of Julie Tuttle be erected in the heart of downtown Miami to honor and remember her efforts and contributions; and
WHEREAS, the City of Miami passed a motion supporting the concept of placing a statue of Julia Tuttle in an appropriate location near her home; and
WHEREAS, downtown Miami and the Miami River are experiencing a grand redevelopment and rebirth that will attract thousands of residents and visitors, and it is an appropriate time to incorporate a statue of Julia Tuttle into these plans,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:
Section 1. This Board agrees that a statue of Julia Tuttle, shall be erected in an appropriate public location in the heart of downtown Miami.
Section 2. This Board directs the County Manager to examine possible locations and funding sources and to report back to the Commission within three months from this date.
