TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MANAGER TO AGGRESSIVELY PLAN FOR AND PURSUE TRANSIT ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES IN A MANNER THAT CAUSES THE LEAST DISRUPTION OF EXISTING BUSINESSES AND PROVIDES OPPORTUNITIES FOR FUTURE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

BODY
WHEREAS, this Board recognizes that the manner in which future transit facilities
including Metrorail extensions are developed will have a great impact on the health, safety, convenience, prosperity and welfare of the citizens of Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, the Miami-Dade County Comprehensive Development Master Plan provides a general framework for development projects in conjunction with the Metrorail system; and
WHEREAS, this Board desires to implement the provisions of the CDMP in a manner that maximizes the benefits from planning and construction of all transit projects; and
WHEREAS, this Board desires to develop the transit projects in a manner that causes

the least disruption of existing businesses and provides opportunities for future economic

development, and

WHEREAS, this Board desires to accomplish the purposes outlined in the accompanying memorandum, a copy of which is incorporated herein by reference.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA:
Section 1. That this Board directs the County Manager to aggressively plan for and

pursue Transit Oriented Development opportunities along proposed transit related projects

and to design transit facilities in a manner that causes the least disruption of existing businesses

and provides opportunities for future economic development.

Section 2. That this Board further directs the County Manager to take all necessary

steps to accomplish this goal including, but not limited to, identification of transit station

development opportunities; evaluation of the feasibility of joint use opportunities; acquisition of

properties to accommodate and/or enhance joint development opportunities; sale or lease of

properties and/or air rights on and over public transportation facilities; promulgation of

ordinances and other related regulations and procedures that will facilitate transit oriented

development and the efficient operation of the mass transit system; design of all Metrorail and

other transit station and parking designs for development along a business corridor to

accommodate business space rental opportunities giving consideration to (a) space rental

being kept affordable; (b) close to commensurate rents currently paid by any displaced business

and (c) displaced business given first opportunity and/or preference to relocate into the new

station, especially in the inner city to help deter gentrification.
