BODY
WHEREAS, Miami-Dade Transit currently operates a Metromover station known as the Performing Arts Center Metromover Station; and
WHEREAS, the Performing Arts Center of Greater Miami (“PAC”) is the home to four resident companies: Concert Association of Florida, Florida Grand Opera, Miami City Ballet and the New World Symphony; and
WHEREAS, the PAC is centrally located in the Arts, Media & Entertainment District; and
WHEREAS, the Performing Arts Center Metromover Station is ideally situated to serve the transportation needs of residents and visitors who attend performances at the PAC; and
WHEREAS, on January 10, 2008, national business leader and philanthropist, Adrienne Arsht, made a $30 million donation to the Performing Arts Center; and
WHEREAS, in recognition of the gift, the former Carnival Center for the Performing Arts has been renamed the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, funds from the Arsht gift donated in years two and three will add to working capital and will complete the funding of the Center’s $16 million dollar endowment giving the Center long-term financial security; and
WHEREAS, the County Commission finds that it is in the best interest of the citizens of Miami-Dade County to rename the Performing Arts Center Metromover Station as the “Arsht Performing Arts Metromover Station”,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:
Section 1. This Board finds that Adrienne Arsht has made a direct, significant lifetime contribution to this community.
