WHEREAS, on March 20, 2007 this Board adopted Resolution No. 355-07 designating the Magic City Children’s Zone and urging the Florida Legislature to provide for creation of the Magic City Children’s Zone Pilot Project; and
WHEREAS, during the 2008 regular session, the Florida Legislature passed House Bill 3, Chapter 2008-96, Laws of Florida, effective July 1, 2008, creating the Magic City Children’s Zone, a 10-year pilot project zone in Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, the Legislature also appropriated $3.6 million to the Magic City Children’s Zone Pilot Project as part of the State Fiscal Year 2008-09 Appropriations Act; and
WHEREAS, H.B. 3 was codified in section 409.147, Florida Statutes and this Board adopted Resolution No. 1277-08 on November 20, 2008, which declared the statutorily-defined area as needing attention in order to improve the health, wellness, education, living conditions, and livelihoods of its residents; and
WHEREAS, Resolution No. 1277-08 also authorized the Mayor or Mayor’s Designee to establish a Community Planning Team and provide support to the Community Planning Team and its Working Groups; and
WHEREAS, subsequent to the Board’s adoption of Resolution No. 1277-08, section 409.147, Florida Statutes was furthered amended by the State Legislature pursuant to H.B. 381; and
WHEREAS, H.B. 381 amended section 409.147, Florida Statutes in the following ways:
1. Changes the name from “children’s zone” to “children’s initiative” and, more specifically, changes the County’s project from the “Magic City Children’s Zone Inc.” to the “Miami Children’s Initiative Inc.”;
2. Delineates expressly that prior to the incorporation of the Miami Children’s Initiative Inc. the governing body must adopt a resolution (in the form of Resolution 1277-08 that has been adopted and is being amended by this Resolution), must establish the planning team, and has adopted the strategic community plan as required by the Statute;
3. Changes where the Miami Children’s Initiative Inc. is administratively housed from the Belafonte Tacolcy Center to the Department of Children and Families;
4. Deletes the previously established geographic boundaries of the project and now requires the project to be within the Liberty City neighborhood in Miami-Dade County;
5. Deletes the requirement of a fifteen (15) member board of directors and deletes any specific requirements as to the board of directors (i.e. specific members, powers and duties, membership terms, meeting requirements);
6. Amends the implementation section to include that the Department of Children and Families shall contract with a not-for-profit corporation to work in collaboration with the governing body to accomplish the prerequisites to incorporation as delineated in paragraph two above. The not-for-profit is also responsible for the evaluation, fiscal management, and oversight of the Miami Children’s Initiative Inc.; and
7. Reappropriates the unexpended balance of funds in Specific Appropriations 345A of the General Appropriations Act for the 2008-2009 fiscal year to the Department of Children and Family Services for the 2009-2010 fiscal year for the purpose of contracting with the Ounce Prevention Fund of Florida, Inc.
