TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE MAYOR OR HIS DESIGNEE TO REVIEW ALL AVAILABLE FUNDING SOURCES FOR THE NORTH CORRIDOR AS WELL AS THE OTHER COMPONENTS OF THE ORANGE LINE AND TO PREPARE A FINANCIAL PLAN THAT ADEQUATELY ADDRESSES THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE FEDERAL NEW STARTS PROJECTS ASSESSMENT PROCESS AND THE OPERATING, MAINTENANCE, AND CAPITAL NEEDS OF MIAMI-DADE TRANSIT FOR THE NEXT TWENTY YEARS

BODY
WHEREAS, on November 5, 2002, the citizens of Miami-Dade County voted overwhelmingly to levy a one-half of one percent sales tax increase in order to improve transportation in Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, in 2002, the Board of County Commissioners adopted Ordinance 02-116 which established the People's Transportation Plan; and
WHEREAS, from its inception, the People's Transportation Plan has included the North, East-West, and MIC-Earlington Heights corridors (collectively referred to as the "Orange Line"); and
WHEREAS, a financial plan addressing the long term operating, maintenance, and capital needs of Miami-Dade Transit will make the entire Orange Line a more attractive candidate for federal funding,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board directs the County Mayor or his designee to review all funding sources for the North Corridor as well as the other components of the Orange Line and to prepare within sixty (60) days a financial plan that adequately addresses the requirements of the federal New Starts projects assessment process and the operating, maintenance, and capital needs of Miami-Dade Transit for the next twenty (20) years.
