REPORT: (SEE AGENDA ITEM 11A5 AMENDED; LEGISLATIVE FILE NO. 100567.)

Housing & Community Development Committee 1/13/2010 2B Forwarded to BCC with a favorable recommendation P
REPORT: Assistant County Attorney Cynthia Johnson-Stacks read the foregoing proposed resolution into the record. It was moved by Commissioner Martinez that this proposed resolution be forwarded to the County Commission with a favorable recommendation. This motion was seconded by Commissioner Rolle, followed by discussion. Commissioner Martinez advised that the requested analysis would use information provided by the same company that built the prefabricated homes in New Orleans, LA. In response to Commissioner Jordan’s inquiry as to whether the homes were required to meet Miami-Dade County’s building standards, Commissioner Martinez clarified that the homes were required to meet the Florida Building Code. Commissioner Jordan expressed concern with the quality of some prefabricated homes previously built by a local builder and indicated she would like to ensure it was not the same company being referenced today. She asked that District 1 be exempted from the locations for these prefabricated homes. Hearing no further questions or comments, the Committee proceeded to vote.

TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR DESIGNEE TO CONDUCT AN ANALYSIS AND PROVIDE A REPORT TO THE BOARD REGARDING THE POSSIBILITY OF CREATING A PROGRAM TO USE PREFABRICATED HOMES FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING UNITS

BODY
WHEREAS, Miami-Dade County provides significant funding for affordable housing programs throughout the County; and
WHEREAS, this Board desires to evaluate the potential for creating a program for using prefabricated homes for affordable housing units,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board directs the County Mayor or his designee to conduct an analysis for the development of a County program that would utilize prefabricated homes for affordable housing. Such analysis should include, but not be limited to: (1) a report from GSA of all available County property that may be used in such a program; (2) a zoning analysis of the potential properties identified by GSA and what steps if any should be taken in furtherance of the program; (3) a report from the Building Department addressing any potential Building Code issues with such a program; and (4) a report describing any available state or federal funding sources, such as FEMA, that may be used to fund the program. The County Mayor or his designee is further directed to present to this Board a report regarding the findings of the study and a plan for implementation within sixty (60) days after the adoption of this resolution.
