BODY

WHEREAS, Appendix A to Resolution No. 919-04 (the “Cultural Facility 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 project funding allocation; and
WHEREAS, one of the projects listed in Appendix A to the Cultural Facilities Resolution and approved by the voters for funding is Project No. 283 - “Richmond Naval Air Station – Building 25” with an allocation of $2 million and a project description that states: “Relocate this historic structure to a location near Miami MetroZoo and complete its rehabilitation as a military museum and memorial. Building 25 is the last remaining wood frame building of the Richmond Naval Air Station, which served as control base for blimps that protected the South Florida coastline during World War II and as a CIA base during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Through the Office of Historic Preservation” (the “Military Museum”); and
WHEREAS, also listed in Appendix A to the Cultural Facility Resolution and approved by the voters for funding is Project No. 293 – “Historic Preservation Fund” (“Project No. 293”), a Countywide fund with an allocation equal to $10,000,000 and a project description that states: “[e]stablish a facilities preservation fund to provide emergency funding to property owners for the rehabilitation of residential and commercial historic sites. The program is geared to make an impact in the revitalization of historic buildings at the neighborhood level, particularly designated historic districts and other areas having a high concentration of older buildings. The Preservation Fund intends to make available up to $1 million annually in grants and loans between $25,000 and $250,000, $3 million to fund the Miami Marine Stadium and $1 million to fund the restoration of Curtiss Mansion”; and
WHEREAS, all additions, deletions and significant modifications to individual projects or to Appendix A to the Cultural Facility Resolution require a majority vote of the Board after a public hearing; and
WHEREAS, this Board wishes to approve a significant modification to Project No. 293 to change the Project Description to add a $1 million allocation to complete the restoration of the Military Museum such that the new Project Description would read as follows: “[e]stablish a facilities preservation fund to provide emergency funding to property owners for the rehabilitation of residential and commercial historic sites. The program is geared to make an impact in the revitalization of historic buildings at the neighborhood level, particularly designated historic districts and other areas having a high concentration of older buildings. The Preservation Fund intends to make available up to $1 million annually in grants and loans between $25,000 and $250,000, $3 million to fund the Miami Marine Stadium, $1 million to fund the restoration of Curtiss Mansion and $1 million to fund the restoration of the Military Museum”; and
WHEREAS, this significant modification to Project No. 293 would add the Military Museum, a facility designated by the Miami-Dade County Board of Historic Preservation as a historic site, as eligible for funding and would allocate $1 million of Project No. 293 BBC Program funds to its historical preservation; and
WHEREAS, these funds would complement additional funding for the restoration of Military Museum provided by BBC GOB Project No. 283- “Richmond Naval Air Station – Building 25”; and
WHEREAS, the Administrative Rules governing the BBC GOB Program contemplate that the award of Project No. 293 funds to an eligible project be made pursuant to a competitive process even though such a process is not legally required; and
WHEREAS, because a competitive process is not currently contemplated, this Board wishes to award $1 million from Project No. 293 BBC GOB Program funds to the Military Museum without a competitive process; and
WHEREAS, this Board wishes to authorize the execution of an Interlocal Cooperation Agreement with the Friends of the Military Museum of South Florida at NAS Richmond, Inc. (the “Grantee”) and the disbursement of BBC GOB Program funds for this purpose only after the satisfaction of certain conditions precedent,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:
Section 1. The foregoing recitals are incorporated in this resolution and are approved.
Section 2. This Board hereby approves the significant modification to Project No. 293, identified in Appendix A to Resolution No. R-919-04, after a public hearing to change the Project Description to read as follows: “Establish a facilities preservation fund to provide emergency funding to property owners for the rehabilitation of residential and commercial historic sites. The program is geared to make an impact in the revitalization of historic buildings at the neighborhood level, particularly designated historic districts and other areas having a high concentration of older buildings. The Preservation Fund intends to make available up to $1 million annually in grants and loans between $25,000 and $250,000, $3 million to fund the Miami Marine Stadium, $1 million to fund the restoration of Curtiss Mansion, and $1 million to fund the restoration of the Military Museum.”
Section 3. This Board waives the Administrative Rules governing the BBC GOB Program that contemplate the award of Project No. 293 funds to an eligible project pursuant to a competitive process and awards $1 million from Project No. 293 BBC GOB Program funds to the restoration of the Military Museum without a competitive process.
Section 4. Notwithstanding the authority delegated to the County Manager pursuant to Resolution No. R-595-05, this Board hereby authorizes the County Mayor or the Mayor’s designee to execute an Interlocal Cooperation Agreement(s) and to disburse BBC GOB Program funds to fund the restoration of the Military Museum only after the satisfaction of all of the following conditions precedent: (a) the Grantee shall submit a plan for the funding of all design and construction costs associated with the complete restoration of the Military Museum (the “Project”), including identification of all funding sources and written commitments from third parties, if any, and the Grantee covenants and warrants that it has, in combination with the Project No. 293 $1 million allocation, the amount of funding necessary to complete the Project; (b) the Grantee shall submit a plan for the funding of future operating costs of the Project; and (c) Project No. 293 must be listed as a project eligible for funding in one or more BBC GOB Program bond series resolutions. The Interlocal Cooperation Agreement shall provide that the Project No. 293 $1 million allocation shall be used to fund the last $1 million of construction costs necessary to complete the Project.
