BODY
WHEREAS, pursuant to Resolution No. R-918-04 (the “Affordable Housing Resolution”), the voters approved the issuance of general obligation bonds (“GOB”) in a principal amount not to exceed $194,997,000 to construct and improve affordable housing for the elderly and families; and
WHEREAS, Appendix A to the Affordable Housing Resolution lists projects eligible for funding from the Building Better Communities General Obligation Bond Program (the “BBC Program”) by project number, municipal project location, BCC district, project name, project description, street address and allocation; and
WHEREAS, one of the projects listed in Appendix A to the Affordable Housing Resolution and approved by the voters for funding is Project No. 249 – “Preservation of Affordable Housing Units and Expansion of Home Ownership” with an original allocation of $137.7 million (“Project No. 249”); and
WHEREAS, there is a need for multi-family rental housing for families that is affordable in District 4; and
WHEREAS, this need may be satisfied in part through the development of multi-family rental units on privately owned land for which preference will be afforded to families who have at least one member employed by public sector and/or health care providers located in Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, each Commissioner is entitled to choose the particular project to which he or she wishes his or her District’s respective BBC Program GOB funds be allocated; and
WHEREAS, in an effort to get the best deal for the County, the Board of County Commissioners (“Board”), pursuant to Resolution No. R-1374-08, directed the County Mayor or the Mayor’s designee to issue a Request for Proposals (“RFP”) that would set forth requirements to be met by each proposer and to present the results to this Board for approval; and
WHEREAS, the RFP process conducted pursuant to Resolution No. R-1374-08 encountered technical issues not related to this Board’s resolutions or actions, and
WHEREAS, this Board seeks to proceed in an expeditious manner while still allowing for competition among the developers who submitted proposals in response to the RFP issued pursuant to Resolution No. R-1374-08; and
WHEREAS, this Board finds that it is in the best interests of the citizens of the County and in particular District 4, to approve the allocation of $10,592,307 from Project No. 249 and to direct the County Mayor or the Mayor’s designee to negotiate with the developers who submitted proposals in response to the RFP issued pursuant to Resolution No. R-1374-08 in order to fund the development of multifamily rental housing on privately owned land in District 4 through a grant, subject to Board approval of the recommended proposer and all necessary agreements,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:

Section 4.

Section 5. The following are minimum requirements for the project: (i) the proposal shall maximize the number of rental units that could be financed from the GOB funds on privately owned land; (ii) forty percent (40%) of the units are to be rented to families that earn up to sixty percent (60%) of the adjusted median income for Miami-Dade County (“Median Income”) and sixty percent (60%) of the units shall be rented to families that earn up to one hundred and forty percent (140%) of Median Income; (iii) the property shall be subject to a Land Use Restriction Agreement requiring the owner to continue to meet the requirements in (ii) above for as long as the bonds issued to fund the development remain outstanding but in no event less than thirty (30) years; (iv) preference shall be given to families who have at least one member employed by public sector and/or health care providers located in Miami-Dade County; and (v) the successful proposer shall enter into a grant agreement that will require the repayment of the grant if the conditions of the grant are not satisfied.
Section 6. This Board hereby waives all competitive bid procedures pursuant to Section 4.03(D) of the Home Rule Charter and Section 2-8.1 of the Miami-Dade County Code by a two-thirds (2/3’s) vote of the Board members present upon written recommendation of the County Mayor.
