TITLE
RESOLUTION JOINING MIAMI SHORES VILLAGE IN URGING THE FLORIDA LEGISLATURE TO CODESIGNATE BISCAYNE BOULEVARD FROM NE 88TH STREET TO NE 105TH STREET WITHIN THE VILLAGE AS “HUGH ANDERSON BOULEVARD”; APPROVING SUCH CODESIGNATION

BODY
WHEREAS, prominent land developer Hugh Anderson came to Miami in 1910 with a grand plan and vision; and
WHEREAS, Anderson sought to provide a wide corridor from downtown Miami to the north that would cut a path through then-undeveloped areas to form what eventually would be known as Biscayne Boulevard; and
WHEREAS, Anderson formed the Shoreland Company during the early 1920s, and purchased large tracts of land in northeast Miami-Dade County with the hopes of drawing new residents to the area he called America’s Mediterranean; and
WHEREAS, Anderson planned for the construction of a 100-foot wide thoroughfare to facilitate travel, and work began on Biscayne Boulevard in November, 1925; and
WHEREAS, the construction of Biscayne Boulevard required the demolition and relocation of many buildings, with construction on the roadway reaching its peak in the summer of 1926, just prior to the Great Miami Hurricane of 1926 and subsequent real estate bust; and
WHEREAS, codesignation of Biscayne Boulevard within Miami Shores Village would serve as a continual reminder to both residents and visitors alike of the importance of Hugh Anderson’s contribution to Miami Shores and Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, on April 7, 2009, the Miami Shores Village Council passed Resolution No. 1163-09, a copy of which is attached and incorporated by reference; and
WHEREAS, Resolution No. 1163-09 affirmed the recommendation of the Miami Shores Village Historic Preservation Board to codesignate Biscayne Boulevard within the Village as “Hugh Anderson Boulevard”, and urged the Florida Legislature and this Board to recognize and support the Village’s request to honor a man who both initiated construction of Biscayne Boulevard and was a founding father of Miami Shores Village; and
WHEREAS, Biscayne Boulevard from NE 88th Street to NE 105th Street within Miami Shores Village is a state road, and as such the Florida Legislature would be required to codesignate this road; and
WHEREAS, Florida Statutes 334.071 provides that the erection of markers for a state road codesignation shall be contingent upon the appropriate city or county commission passing a resolution in support of the particular honorary designation; and
WHEREAS, this Board would like to join the Miami Shores Village Council in recognizing the contributions of Hugh Anderson by urging the Florida Legislature to codesignate Biscayne Boulevard from NE 88th Street to NE 105th Street as “Hugh Anderson Boulevard”; and
WHEREAS, part of this proposed codesignation is located in County Commission District 3 and part serves as the boundary line between County Commission Districts 3 and 4,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board:
Section 1. Joins the Miami Shores Village Council in urging the Florida Legislature to codesignate Biscayne Boulevard from NE 88th Street to NE 105th Street within Miami Shores Village as “Hugh Anderson Boulevard.”
Section 2. Approves the state road designation of Biscayne Boulevard within Miami Shores Village as “Hugh Anderson Boulevard.”
Section 3. Directs the Clerk of the Board to transmit certified copies of the resolution to the Governor, the Senate President, the House Speaker, the Chair and Members of the Miami-Dade State Legislative Delegation, the Mayor of Miami Shores Village and the Members of the Miami Shores Village Council.
Section 4. Directs the County’s state lobbyists to advocate for the issue identified in Section 1 above, and authorizes and directs the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs to include this item in the 2011 state legislative package.
