TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE MAYOR OR THE MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO USE BEST EFFORTS TO IDENTIFY UP TO 850 ANNUAL CONTRIBUTIONS CONTRACT (ACC) EQUIVALENT UNITS WITHIN THE EXPANDED HOPE VI TARGET AREA FOR LOW INCOME FAMILIES AND ELDERLY PERSONS

BODY
WHEREAS, the Board supports all efforts to ensure that the County exercises best efforts to provide a total of 850 Annual Contributions Contract (ACC) equivalent units, which are safe and sanitary, within the expanded Scott/Carver HOPE VI Target Area (“Target Area”) to replace the units that were demolished as part of the HOPE VI redevelopment plan; and
WHEREAS, the Target Area is bounded generally by NW 7th Avenue, NW 119th Street, NW 32nd Avenue and NW 36th Street; and
WHEREAS, over the course of the last year County staff has been engaged in collaborative efforts with the community to achieve this goal; and
WHEREAS, although there will be a significant number of ACC equivalent units created within the original HOPE VI site, the total number of units produced will not be 850, and
WHEREAS, the Target Area provides additional land opportunities upon which these units can be provided to the community; and
WHEREAS, there is a large number of public housing eligible families and elderly persons in need of such housing as evidenced by the over 71,000 applicants on the Miami-Dade Housing Agency (MDHA) waiting lists, and as further evidenced by the documentation contained within the County’s Five Year Consolidated Plan; and
WHEREAS, the 850 units will be comprised of ACC units, Elderly units (up to 25% of the 850 total) acceptable Tax Credit units that will be built in the expanded HOPE VI area (defined as all units set-aside for up to 33% of AMI and 25% of all units built for those earning between 33% and 60% of AMI,) and the County commitment to project base as many Housing Choice Vouchers as are required to meet the target number of 850,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board: directs the County Mayor or the County Mayor’s designee to use best efforts to produce 850 units of ACC equivalent housing within the expanded HOPE VI Target Area for low income families and elderly persons of Miami-Dade County.
