TITLE
RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE COUNTY MANAGER TO ISSUE AN ADMINISTRATIVE BUILDING MORATORIUM PURSUANT TO SECTION 33-319 OF THE CODE OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY FOR A CERTAIN MOBILE HOME PARK LOCATED IN NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE COUNTY

BODY
WHEREAS, a mobile home park approved for over 908 mobile homes lies between Northwest Flagler Street and 7th Street and Northwest 112th Avenue and the Florida Turnpike, on a parcel of land lying in part in unincorporated Miami-Dade County and in part within the municipal boundaries of the City of Sweetwater; and
WHEREAS, the unincorporated land on which mobile home park lies is zoned GU (Interim Use), but has received various approvals beginning in the 1960s for a mobile home park, and is presently approved for a residential density of approximately 8.83 dwelling units per acre; and
WHEREAS, at such density the mobile home park presently houses hundreds of residents at costs that are affordable for working and retired people; and
WHEREAS, the unincorporated parcel on which the mobile home park lies is designated under the Comprehensive Development Master Plan (CDMP) for medium high residential density (13 to 25 dwelling units per acre); and
WHEREAS, the area surrounding the mobile home park is densely populated, creating very substantial demands on the schools and roads serving the area; and
WHEREAS, any rezoning of the mobile home park parcel would be subject to the CDMP minimum density of 13 dwelling units per acre, resulting in very substantial additional impacts on schools and roads in the area, as well as redevelopment with potential loss of hundreds of affordable homes for the residents who live there today; and
WHEREAS, section 723.083, Florida Statutes, provides that "[n]o agency of government shall approve any application for rezoning, or take any other official action, which would result in the removal or relocation of mobile home owners residing in a mobile home park without first determining that adequate mobile home parks or other suitable facilities exist for the relocation of the mobile home owners"; and
WHEREAS, this Board wishes to consider the merits of imposing a moratorium on the unincorporated area of the above-described mobile home park to afford the County Manager and staff an opportunity to study and make a recommendation as to whether changes should be made to the zoning district for the parcel on which the unincorporated portion of the mobile home park lies, taking into account the surrounding development, the availability of public facilities and resources, and the availability or lack of alternative mobile home parks or affordable housing for the residents of the mobile home park, should an application for rezoning be filed or other changes to the zoning district be made,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that pursuant to Section 33-320 of the Code of Miami-Dade County this Board hereby requests and makes application to the County Manager to issue an administrative building moratorium pursuant to Section 33-319 of the Code of Miami-Dade County for the unincorporated area of the above-described mobile home park.
