Commissioner Jordan asked that the foregoing proposed resolutions include a fiscal impact. Commissioner Edmonson noted the report coming forth by Ms. Cathy Peel, Director, Miami-Dade Consumer Services Department (CSD) would include the fiscal impact. Commissioner Souto noted his previous attempt to explore the feasibility of designating taxicab stands at parks and hospitals located in Miami-Dade County. Mr. Diego Feliciano, President, South Florida Taxicab Association, appeared before the Board, in support of the foregoing proposed resolution and Agenda Item 2B. He noted the need for taxicab stands for public facilities throughout Miami-Dade County. Mr. Feliciano stated having taxicab stands would promote safety for taxicab drivers and better serve the community. He stressed the need for more taxicab stands in this community and his work with the CSD Transportation Advisory Group in addressing this issue. Commissioner Souto supported Mr. Feliciano’s comments and noted his experience in other countries with taxicab stands. Hearing no further questions or comments, the Committee proceeded to vote on the foregoing proposed resolution and Agenda Item 2B as presented.

TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING COUNTY MANAGER TO PREPARE A REPORT REGARDING THE FEASIBILITY AND ADVISABILITY OF DESIGNATING TAXICAB STANDS ON LAND OWNED BY MIAMI-DADE COUNTY

BODY
WHEREAS, taxicabs provide an important transportation service in Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, taxicab stands provide a convenient and visible location for members of the public to obtain taxicab services, and provide taxicabs a designated location from which they can serve the public; and
WHEREAS, the Taxicab Study issued by the Tennessee Transportation and Logistics Foundation on January 14, 2007 found that there was a need for additional taxicab stands in Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, the Commission finds that increasing the number of taxicab stands will enhance our transportation system; and
WHEREAS, Metrorail users, for example, may benefit from having taxicab stands located at Metrorail stations to provide them with a convenient transportation option to connect them with their final destination; and
WHEREAS, the Commission believes that it is in the best interest of the citizens of Miami-Dade County to explore the feasibility and advisability of designating taxicab stands on County-owned land including, but not limited to, Metrorail stations,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the County Manager is directed to prepare a report regarding the feasibility and advisability of designating taxicab stands on land owned by Miami-Dade County. The County Manager shall present a copy of this report to the Economic Development and Human Services Committees within sixty (60) days from the adoption of this resolution.
