Budget and Finance Committee 7/11/2007 2D Forwarded to BCC with a favorable recommendation P
REPORT: Hearing no objection, the Committee proceeded to consider Agenda Items 2A, 2B, 2C, and 2D simultaneously. Assistant County Attorney Benitez read the foregoing proposed resolution into the record. Commissioner Sosa asked Assistant County Manager Ian Yorty to provide a comparative analysis on the cost to renourish the beaches with domestic versus non-domestic sand, including a report indicating whether or not the County’s portion of the cost could be shared with the municipalities and identifying the funding source(s) to be used for beach renourishment. Commissioner Sorenson asked that she be listed as a co-sponsor to Agenda Item 2D. Commissioner Gimenez asked Assistant County Manager Ian Yorty to provide a report, before the next County Commission meeting, indicating whether or not the County ever co-designated any portion of Flagler Street and Biscayne Boulevard including any Federal Regulations governing the co-designation of Federal roadways. Following Commissioner Sosa’s comments clarifying that the County had to co-designate State Highways in conjunction with a State Representative sponsoring the item in the legislature, Assistant County Manager Yorty clarified a municipality had to pass a similar resolution if the road went through a municipality. Hearing no other questions or comments, the Committee proceeded to vote.

TITLE
RESOLUTION URGING THE CITY OF MIAMI AND MIAMI SHORES VILLAGE TO PASS RESOLUTIONS SUPPORTING THE DESIGNATION OF BISCAYNE BOULEVARD FROM N.E. 54TH STREET TO N.E. 95th STREET AS ‘’M. ATHALIE RANGE BOULEVARD’’

BODY
WHEREAS, M. Athalie Range, a pioneer in Florida and Miami politics and a legend in Miami’s Black community, died on November 14, 2006, just one week after her 91st birthday; and
WHEREAS, this Board by resolution dated March 20, 2007, urged the Florida Legislature to designate Biscayne Boulevard from N.E. 54th Street to N.E. 95th Street as “M. Athalie Range Boulevard”, Resolution No. 350-07, a copy of which is attached and incorporated by reference; and
WHEREAS, the Florida Legislature passed CS/SB 138, which among other road designations, designates Biscayne Boulevard from N.E. 54th Street to N.E. 95th Street as “M. Athalie Range Boulevard”; and
WHEREAS, section 334.071, Florida Statutes, provides that the installation of road designation signs shall be contingent on the applicable city commissions passing a resolution in support of the particular honorary road designation; and
WHEREAS, before the Florida Department of Transportation will install signs reflecting the M. Athalie Range road designation, the Miami City Commission and the Miami Shores Village Council will need to pass resolutions in support of the road designation,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board:
Section 1. Urges the City of Miami and Miami Shores Village to pass resolutions supporting the designation of Biscayne Boulevard from N.E. 54th Street to N.E. 95th Street as “M. Athalie Range Boulevard.”
Section 2. Directs the Clerk of the Board to transmit certified copies of the resolution to the Mayor and member of the Miami City Commission and the Mayor and members of the Miami Shores Village Council.
