WHEREAS, this Board desires to accomplish the purposes outlined in the accompanying memorandum, a copy of which is incorporated herein by this reference, NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board hereby approves the significant modification to Building Better Communities Bond Program Project No. 57-“Aventura-Purchase Land for Parks/Public Facilities” identified in Appendix A to Resolution No. R-913-04 after a public hearing, all as more particularly described in the accompanying memorandum.

HEADER
Date:
To:Honorable Chairman Bruno A. Barreiro and Members, Board of County Commissioners
From: George M. Burgess County Manager
Subject: Significant Modification of Building Better Communities Bond Program Project No. 57 – “Aventura – Purchase Land for Parks/Public Facilities”

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (Board) adopt the attached resolution which approves significant modifications to the Building Better Communities (BBC) bond program project description for the “Aventura – Purchase land for Parks/Public Facilities” – Project No. 57 after a public hearing pursuant to Resolution No. R-913-04 (“Authorizing Resolution”). Scope The impact of this agenda item is limited to County Commission District 4 and the City of Aventura. Fiscal Impact/Funding Source There is no fiscal impact on the existing BBC allocation due to this modification and the project is funded from the Building Better Communities Bond Program. Track Record/Monitor Recommending Entity – The implementing agency will be the City of Aventura which is in good standing with Miami-Dade County. The responsible party for Monitoring is the Office of Capital Improvements (OCI), Roger T. Hernstadt, Director. The Project Manager from OCI will be Jose A. Galan, Chief – Program Legislation.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Appendix A to the Authorizing Resolution lists municipal projects eligible for funding from the Building Better Communities Bond Program by number, name and size. All additions, deletions and significant modifications to individual projects or to Appendix A require a majority vote of the Board after a public hearing. One of the municipal projects included in the Building Better Communities Bond Program as Project No. 57 is “The purchase of a park/facility in the City of Aventura” with an allocation of $4.714 million. The original description for this project, as included in Resolution No. R-913-04 states: “GOB funds will compliment other funding to purchase vacant land in the City of Aventura to be used for parks or other public facilities.” The Office of Capital Improvements has worked with the City of Aventura to develop a strategic approach for maximizing the public benefits of their bond program funding. As a result of this work, it is recommended that the project description be modified to allow for the design and construction of a Performing Arts Center in lieu of the purchase of vacant land for parks or other public facility. The new description will be as follows: “GOB funds will complement other funding to buy land and/or provide funding for design and construction costs of a Performing Arts Center that will house approximately 300 seats and provide a variety of performing arts and cultural programming for all age groups. The project will be built on County land alongside or above the Aventura Branch Library that is being rebuilt after it was destroyed by Hurricane Wilma.” The City of Aventura intends to construct this project on County land that currently houses the Northeast Library. This library was damaged beyond repair by Hurricane Wilma in 2006 and the Library Department has worked with the City of Aventura to prepare an interlocal agreement allowing the City to build the library on our behalf. When completed, the new complex will house both a Performing Arts Center and a new library. To facilitate this, an item that would allow municipalities to use their own procurement procedures when constructing projects on behalf of the County has been submitted and will soon appear before the Board for consideration. The proposed ordinance stipulates that the County’s Community Small Business Enterprise (CSBE) and Community Business Enterprise (CBE – A/E) programs would remain in effect. In addition, an inter-local agreement with the City of Aventura is also being scheduled for Board consideration under separate cover. _________________________________ Assistant County Manager
