REPORT: Assistant County Attorney Jess McCarty read the foregoing proposed resolution into the record. Chairwoman Sorenson questioned who would monitor and enforce Implementing Order 2-10. Mr. Marc LaFerrier, Director, Department of Planning & Zoning, noted the County could search the Clerk of Circuit and County Courts’ database to determine what properties foreclosed and then notify the banks that owned those properties of the new Certificate of Use (CU) requirements. He explained the County could then monitor whether the mortgagees were seeking the CU. Ms. Truly Burton, Builders Association of South Florida, expressed appreciation for County staff’s help to answer the questions from the Builders Association of South Florida. She noted staff clarified that the CU would apply only to foreclosed properties owned by lenders and investors. Hearing no other questions or comments, the Committee proceeded to vote.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background

On December 2, 2008 the Board adopted Ordinance No. 08-133, which requires issuance of a Certificate of Use (CU) by the Department of Planning and Zoning (Department) when residential properties in unincorporated Miami-Dade County are acquired through a Certificate of Title (Foreclosures and Judgments), in accordance with Chapter 45, Florida Statutes. The purpose of the CU process is to document and disclose to the public the extent to which residential properties (i.e. single family, condominium, townhouse, or duplex) acquired in this way comply with all applicable building codes and zoning codes. The CU process includes preparation of a disclosure of findings report, which identifies building or zoning code violations for each property and contains a good faith estimate of the cost to remedy any deficiencies. Building code violations will be referred to the Building Department for enforcement and zoning code violations will be referred to the Office of Neighborhood Compliance for enforcement.

The attached Implementing Order, Certificate of Use (Foreclosures and Judgments), establishes the process that will be used by the Department to implement the provisions contained in the above mentioned Ordinance.
