TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR THE MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO ANALYZE CURRENT LAND USES AND CONDITIONS IN WESTERN MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, IDENTIFY SUCCESSFUL PRACTICES USED IN OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY FOR GREENBELTS, CONDUCT COMMUNITY OUTREACH, DEVELOP A STRATEGIC PLAN, AND INVESTIGATE FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES, WITH THE GOAL OF CREATING A CONTIGUOUS GREENBELT IN WESTERN MIAMI-DADE COUNTY

BODY

WHEREAS, the Miami-Dade County Parks and Open Space System Master Plan envisions a contiguous greenbelt in western Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, a contiguous greenbelt in western Miami-Dade County could provide recreational opportunities that are more accessible to western residents and visitors; and
WHEREAS, a greenbelt could be created through a number of different methods which consider the existing land uses and conditions, as well as the interests of the residents, interested parties, and property owners in western Miami-Dade County; and
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the Mayor or the Mayor’s designee is directed to do the following, with the goal of creating a contiguous greenbelt in western Miami-Dade County:
(1) Conduct an inventory of maps, studies and reports pertaining to the western portion of Miami-Dade County; analyze those results to determine the current land uses, animal and plant habitats, environmental conditions such as flooding, and land regulations, including but not limited to easements, zoning, and utility corridors; and map these results.
(2) Identify successful practices that have been used in other areas of the United States to develop similar greenbelt areas using fee or less than fee ownership and summarize this information for use as a reference by Miami-Dade County.
(3) Conduct outreach with potentially affected stakeholders, elected officials and interested parties and organizations, and prepare a summary of the input received.
(4) Develop a strategic plan which identifies potential benefits and concerns, specific opportunities and constraints on those opportunities, and focus areas; and create a plan with graphics and text to illustrate the ideas.
(5) Identify funding strategies and research funding opportunities for implementing this plan for a western greenbelt.
