Housing & Community Development Committee 4/15/2009 2B Forwarded to BCC with a favorable recommendation P
REPORT: Assistant County Attorney Cynthia Johnson-Stacks read the foregoing proposed resolution into the record. In response to Commissioner Sorenson’s inquiry as to what method would be used to calculate the unemployment rate, foreclosure rate, property rates, and other necessary measures, Mr. Robert Cruz, Chief Economist for Miami-Dade County, advised that data from the 2000 Census report was currently being used. He further advised, however, that plans to correlate this limited information with other indicators from state agencies were being developed. Chairwoman Edmonson stated she would meet with Mr. Cruz to discuss the approach to gathering the data necessary to prepare this report on the economic condition of each commission district. Commissioner Rolle asked the Chief Economist to assist him with identifying resources that could be used to bailout small businesses in District 2 in need of financial assistance. There being no further questions or comments, the Committee proceeded to vote.
