TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING COUNTY MANAGER TO EXPLORE THE FEASIBILITY AND ADVISABILITY OF INTRODUCING VARIOUS WATERBORNE TRANSIT ROUTES IN MIAMI-DADE COUNTY

BODY
WHEREAS, Miami-Dade County has a vast array of navigable waterways and canals which may provide alternative transportation routes for Miami-Dade County's mass transit system; and
WHEREAS, technological advances have led to the manufacture of water vessels which can quickly, safely and efficiently transport large numbers of people from one location to another; and
WHEREAS, the introduction of a nonstop water-based transportation route from South Dade to downtown Miami and from Northeast Dade to downtown Miami may provide an alternative mode of mass transportation which could ease congestion on Miami-Dade County's roads; and
WHEREAS, the Commission believes that a study evaluating the feasibility and advisability of a water transportation route from South Dade to downtown Miami and from Northeast Dade to downtown Miami is in the best interest of the citizens of Miami-Dade County,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the County Manager is directed to explore the feasibility and advisability of introducing a nonstop waterborne transit route from South Dade to downtown Miami and from Northeast Dade to downtown Miami. The County Manager shall work with the Metropolitan Planning Organization, and submit a report to the Regional Transportation Committee within one hundred and twenty (120) days after the adoption of this resolution.
