TITLE
RESOLUTION RELATING TO MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT; CONFIRMING THE POLICY OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS NOT TO EXPAND THE WESTERN BOUNDARIES OF THE AIRPORT AND DIRECTING THE MAYOR AND COUNTY ATTORNEY NOT TO PURSUE THE ACQUISITION OF ANY PROPERTIES LOCATED TO THE WEST OF THE AIRPORT

BODY
WHEREAS, during the 1990s, various studies and reports were prepared by the County's Aviation Department and its Consultants that recommended the acquisition by the County of properties located to the west of Miami International Airport ("MIA") as a means of accommodating the anticipated growth of the Airport; and
WHEREAS, as a result of such studies, this Board authorized the Aviation Department to obtain the appraisals of certain properties and engage in negotiations with their owners for the purpose of acquiring such properties for MIA, such as in Resolution No. R-1630-95 and Resolution No. R-1522-97, but no purchase of properties resulted from such studies or the resolutions; and
WHEREAS, this Board has considered the studies and the issue of expansion of MIA to the west and has concluded that it is not in the best interests of the County or the airport system for MIA to expand its present boundaries that lie on the western side of MIA, other than as may be specifically approved in the future by this Board,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board finds and determines that it is not in the best interest of Miami-Dade County to expand the western boundaries of Miami International Airport and directs the Mayor and the County Attorney not to pursue the acquisition by the County of any properties located to the west of the Airport without prior authorization of this Board.
