REPORT: (See Agenda Item 11A2 Amended; Legislative File No. 090339 for the amended version.)

Airport and Tourism Committee 12/11/2008 2A Forwarded to BCC with a favorable recommendation P
REPORT: Assistant County Attorney David Murray read the foregoing proposed resolution into the record. Chairman Diaz relinquished the Chair to Vice Chairwoman Heyman. It was moved by Commissioner Diaz that the foregoing proposed resolution be forwarded to the County Commission with a favorable recommendation. This motion was seconded by Commissioner Martinez. Commissioner Sosa referenced a resolution which was sponsored by Commissioner Moss and approved by the County Commission asking for a similar request in Homestead. She questioned whether the foregoing proposed resolution was in addition to Commissioner Moss’ resolution and the fiscal impact of this proposal. Commissioner Diaz said the proposed resolution involved negotiations with the City of Hialeah and Major League Baseball and the economic impact would greatly benefit the community. He noted Commissioner Moss’ resolution related to bringing a team to the Homestead Baseball Stadium for spring training. In response to Commissioner Sosa’s inquiry whether the proposed project would involve the expenditure of County funds, Commissioner Diaz said this resolution only expressed support for the negotiations between the City of Hialeah and Major League Baseball. In response to Vice Chairwoman Heyman’s inquiry, Assistant County Attorney Murray noted this resolution was not tied to the status of the proposed new baseball stadium. Hearing no further comments or questions, the Committee voted on the foregoing proposed resolution as presented.
