WHEREAS, Appendix A to the Parks Facilities Resolution lists projects eligible for funding from the Building Better Communities General Obligation Bond (“BBC GOB”) 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 Parks Facilities Resolution and approved by the voters for funding is Project No. 106 – “West Perrine Park,” with a project description of “park improvements, which include an aquatic center, athletic fields and courts; vehicle and pedestrian circulation; landscaping and irrigation” and with an allocation of $5 million; and
WHEREAS, $4.5 million of the total allocation for Project No. 106 is to be used for the development and construction of the West Perrine Park Family Aquatic Center; and
WHEREAS, the West Perrine Park previously had a pool but it has been demolished; and
WHEREAS, the West Perrine area is a densely populated, low-income area; and
WHEREAS, currently the nearest Miami-Dade Park and Recreation Department pool is outside the desirable service area for the local community served by West Perrine Park; and
WHEREAS, the local community served by West Perrine Park has expressed interest in the speedy development of the Family Aquatic Center through local leisure interest surveys; and
WHEREAS, Florida had the highest unintentional drowning death rate of toddlers ages 1-4 in the United States in the 5 years between 1999 and 2003 and the third highest overall unintentional drowning death rate in the United States in the 5 years between 1999 and 2003; and

WHEREAS, this Board desires to add the West Perrine Family Aquatic Center located in District 9 to the list of ESP projects to be expedited under the ESP in order to implement such project as expeditiously as possible in order to stimulate the local construction industry; and
WHEREAS, this Board wishes to direct the County Mayor or Mayor’s designee to list Project No. 106 in the next series resolution as a project eligible for funding, to fund the development and construction of the West Perrine Family Aquatic Center in full in the amount of $4.5 million from bond proceeds generated from the next BBC GOB Program bonds (scheduled to be issued in the Fall of 2010) and not to make any adjustments to said funding for any reason, including cash flow revisions by the County Mayor or Mayor’s designee authorized by Implementing Order No. 3-47, without this Board’s prior approval,
