Commissioner Diaz spoke in support of the County Administration using a Request for Proposals (RFP) to provide turn-key housing for military personnel. Responding to Commissioner Sorenson’s comments regarding decreased housing prices in the Homestead area, Commissioner Diaz clarified he was speaking of rental housing.

BODY
WHEREAS, the County is satisfied that the United States of America requires the County-owned property for such use and the property is not otherwise needed for County purposes; and
WHEREAS, the lease of the property to United States of America for said purposes is consistent with the requirements and terms of the Economic Development Conveyance Agreement entered into between the United States and Miami-Dade County which provided for the conveyance of the property to the County and all other documents governing the use of the property,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board hereby authorizes the County Mayor or his designee to negotiate a lease with the United States of America for use by its Special Operations Command South (SOCSOUTH) unit of the Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) of the U.S. Military for the purpose of general operations on County-owned land and building adjacent to the Homestead Air Reserve Base at the west end of Bikini Drive. In order to accommodate growth in operations and an increase in personnel, said lease may also grant to the United States of America an option to lease other buildings and land located to the east of the subject premises south of Bikini Blvd.; authorizing the Mayor or his designee to execute the lease and to exercise any and all rights conferred therein.
