TITLE
RESOLUTION DECLARING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT BUILDING MEASURES FOR COUNTY BUILDINGS AS A POLICY OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY AND DIRECTING THE COUNTY MANAGER TO PREPARE A PLAN TO IMPLEMENT THIS POLICY

BODY
WHEREAS, this Board seeks to enhance the public welfare and assure that further civic development is consistent with this Board's desire to create a more sustainable community by incorporating sustainable development building measures into the design, construction, renovation and maintenance of County-owned, County-financed and County-operated buildings; and
WHEREAS, this Board recognizes that such sustainable development building measures are designed to encourage resource conservation, reduce waste generated by construction projects, increase energy efficiency, and promote the health and productivity of residents, employees and visitors to Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, this Board recognizes that the design, construction, renovation and maintenance of buildings within Miami-Dade County has a significant impact on Miami-Dade County's environmental sustainability, resource usage and efficiency, waste management, and the health and productivity of residents, employees, and visitors to Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, this Board recognizes that utilizing such sustainable development building measures may result in significant cost savings to Miami-Dade County over the life of the buildings; and
WHEREAS, this Board finds that in recent years sustainable development building measures for design, construction, renovation, and maintenance of buildings have become increasingly widespread; and
WHEREAS, Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City (MO), Los Angeles, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and other major metropolitan areas in the United States have adopted significant sustainable development building measures for the design, construction, renovation, and maintenance of public buildings,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:
Section 1. This Board hereby declares that the incorporation of sustainable development building measures into the design, construction, renovation and maintenance of County-owned, County-financed, and County-operated buildings shall be the policy of Miami-Dade County.
Section 2. The County Manager is hereby directed to prepare a plan for the implementation of this policy and to provide this plan to this Board not later than 120 days from the date hereof. The plan shall include, but not be limited to, a timetable for implementation, adoption of a well-recognized Green Building standard such as the US Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system, a description of appropriate legislation for consideration by this Board, and consideration of the creation of a County-wide office in the Office of the County Manager to implement the approved plan and coordinate other sustainability initiatives currently being conducted by various County departments and agencies.
