TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MANAGER TO DEVELOP RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMMUNITY LAND TRUST; REQUIRING REPORT

BODY
WHEREAS, pursuant to Section 17-127 of the Code of Miami-Dade County, the Board of County Commissioners has expressed its intent to form a Community Land Trust (CLT) in Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, CLTs are a method to assist the community to acquire land as well as rehabilitate existing buildings to develop and provide permanent affordable housing, in a variety of forms, to very low, low and moderate income persons and families; and
WHEREAS, the housing cost in Miami-Dade County continue to be unaffordable to many residents of Miami-Dade County and places a strain on very low, low and moderate income persons and families; and
WHEREAS, CLTs have been formed in other high housing cost urban areas to provide a method to acquire and hold land and/or property for benefit of community and to subsequently provide affordable housing options; and
WHEREAS, Miami-Dade County operates a number of housing programs to assist in developing affordable housing for very low, low and moderate income persons and families; and
WHEREAS, Miami-Dade County needs to provide additional options for affordable housing for very low, low and moderate income persons and families; and
WHEREAS, Miami-Dade County seeks a cohesive approach to the acquisition of land, as well as existing County and private property and buildings for the development of single family and multifamily housing for the development and construction and rehabilitation of affordable housing for very low, low and moderate income persons and families; and
WHEREAS, the CLT model is one area of affordable housing strategy that has not been aggressively pursued by Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, the Board adopted Resolution No. 306-03 on April 8, 2003 in which it directed the County Manager to consult with appropriate County departments and authorities and to report back to the former Economic Development and Human Services Committee with recommendations for the implementation of a CLT; and
WHEREAS, the Board wishes to establish a CLT,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board directs:
Section 1. The County Manager to develop recommendations for the implementation of a Community Land Trust including but not limited to:
(a) The appropriate steps for Miami-Dade County to establish a countywide CLT and/or community-based CLT, including but not limited to establishing or collaborating with an established nonprofit organization, such as the Miami-Dade Housing Finance Authority and Miami-Dade Affordable Housing Foundation, Inc., engaged in the business of developing affordable housing in Miami-Dade County and working with other affordable housing organizations, such as 1000 Friends of Florida, Inc.
(b) The appropriate steps to determine the availability of County and privately owned land and acquisition of land, including appropriate timelines.
(c) The available financing mechanisms available through local, state and federal agencies to finance development, acquisition or rehabilitation of existing properties, including but not limited to bond financing, tax credits and General Fund commitment.
(d) The appropriate financing mechanisms available through local, state and federal agencies and programs to provide a revenue stream for CLT organizations.
(e) The advantages and disadvantages of homeownership versus rental-type CLTs.
(f) The enactment of or amendment to existing ordinances to establish a CLT.
(g) The other relevant matters that shall be considered for the development and implementation of a CLT.
