TITLE
RESOLUTION URGING THE FLORIDA LEGISLATURE TO ENACT LEGISLATION, INCLUDING A JOINT RESOLUTION PROPOSING A CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT IF NECESSARY, TO PROVIDE PROPERTY APPRAISERS STATEWIDE AN ALTERNATIVE ASSESSMENT APPROACH FOR MULTIFAMILY AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROPERTIES

BODY
WHEREAS, property values for all types of real property have appreciated at unprecedented levels in Miami-Dade County over the past few years; and
WHEREAS, the values of multi-family affordable housing properties have also risen at correspondingly high rates; and
WHEREAS, these increases in the value of multi-family affordable housing properties have lead to significantly higher property tax bills, and in turn, higher rents; and
WHEREAS, this phenomenon has contributed to the affordable housing issues that face our community; and
WHEREAS, state law does not currently allow all multi-family affordable housing properties to be appraised at less than market value; and
WHEREAS, a change to state law allowing multi-family affordable housing properties to be assessed at less than market value could help to address Miami-Dade County's affordable housing issues,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board:
Section 1. Urges the Florida Legislature to enact legislation, either through a bill or a joint resolution proposing a constitutional amendment, to provide Florida property appraisers an alternative assessment approach for multi-family affordable housing properties.
Section 2. Directs the Clerk of the Board to transmit copies of this resolution to the Chair and members of the Miami-Dade State Legislative Delegation.
Section 3. Directs the County's state lobbying team to advocate for the passage of the legislation set forth in section 1 above. The Office of Intergovernmental Affairs is directed to include this item in the 2006 State Legislative Package.
