WEHREAS, hosting the Olympic Games is beneficial in that it brings prestige and international exposure to the host city; and
WHEREAS, the process of submitting bids to compete for the hosting of the
Olympic Games commences many years in advance; and

WHEREAS, the County of Miami-Dade County sections 2-11.36-2-11.40 provides for the creation of advisory boards to the Board of County Commissioners; and
WHEREAS, given the benefits of hosting the Olympic Games and the advance planning required, it is in the best interest of the County to establish an Olympic Exploratory Committee Advisory Board to serve as a working group to study the feasibility and methodology for Miami-Dade County to compete to host the Olympic Games,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that an Olympic Exploratory Committee Advisory Board is hereby created to serve as a working group that would study the feasibility of how Miami-Dade County can compete to host the Olympic Games and that such Advisory Board will report back to the Board of County Commissioners with recommendations on the feasibility and methodology for Miami-Dade County to compete to host the Olympic Games.
