TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MANAGER TO EXPLORE THE FEASIBILITY AND PROVIDE AN ANALYSIS FOR THE DEMOLITION AND/OR REHABILITATION OF THE LINCOLN GARDENS PUBLIC HOUSING DEVELOPMENT; REQUIRING REPORT

BODY
WHEREAS, there is a severe public housing shortage which exists within Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, this housing shortage is attributable in part to the fact that some of the public housing developments owned and operated by Miami-Dade County (“County”), through its department Miami-Dade Housing Agency (“MDHA”), are severely distressed, physically deteriorated and either must be demolished or rehabilitated; and
WHEREAS, Lincoln Gardens Public Housing Development (“Lincoln Gardens”), which is located in Commission District 3 is one such public housing development that is severely distressed and physically deteriorated; and
WHEREAS, the costs associated with bringing the existing development into compliance with current standards may be prohibitively expensive; and
WHEREAS, demolishing all or a portion of Lincoln Gardens will allow the development to be renewed and revitalized through the creation of improved circulation paths and/or the provision of other amenities as well as creation of decent, safe and healthy dwelling units for public housing residents; and
WHEREAS, prior to any disposition and/or demolition of Lincoln Gardens, the County, through MDHA, must submit an application to and obtain approval from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”); and
WHEREAS, prior to submitting a demolition/disposition application to HUD the County, through MDHA, is required to develop a replacement housing plan for Lincoln Gardens, conduct an environmental review, and consult with the impacted tenants and any tenant organizations,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, the Board directs:
Section 1. The County Manager to explore the feasibility and provide an analysis for the demolition and/or rehabilitation of Lincoln Gardens.
Section 2. The County Manager shall include in the feasibility study and analysis the following elements:
a. A plan to demolish and/or rehabilitate Lincoln Gardens that is developed in consultation with the tenants and tenant organization(s) that will be affected by said activities and which incorporates the expressed needs of these tenants and tenant organization(s);
b. An analysis of conducting the demolition and/or rehabilitation or Lincoln Gardens in phases so as to have limited impact upon the tenants currently residing within the development and the tenant organization(s) that represents these tenants;
c. A costs analysis for the proposed demolition and/or rehabilitation of Lincoln Gardens;
d. A replacement housing plan that includes but is not limited to the number units to be demolished and the number of units to be replaced;
e. An environmental review;
f. A relocation plan for the existing tenants who may be displaced as a result of these activities; and
g. Any other elements required by the U.S. Housing Act of 1937, as amended, the implementing federal regulations promulgated by HUD, and the Annual Contributions Contract between the County and HUD.
Section 3. The County Manager to submit a report to the Board with the results of this exploration and analysis within one hundred and eighty (180) days from the date of this resolution.
