TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR THE COUNTY MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO PROVIDE A REPORT TO THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSION REGARDING THE COUNTY OR ITS CONTRACTOR’S COMPLIANCE WITH THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT’S SECTION 3 AND PROCUREMENT REQUIREMENTS FOR THE SCOTT-CARVER HOPE VI REVITALIZATION PROJECT

BODY
WHEREAS, in 1999, the Miami-Dade County (“County”) submitted a HOPE VI application to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”) to seek funding to demolish and revitalize the James E. Scott Homes and Carver Homes Public Housing Development (“Scott-Carver”); and
WHEREAS, HUD awarded a HOPE VI implementation grant in the amount of $35 million (the “Grant”) for the purpose of demolishing and revitalizing Scott-Carver Homes; and
WHEREAS, the County, through the developer, McCormack Baron Salazar (“MBS”), is in the process of rebuilding the new community to re-house the former residents of Scott-Carver and other eligible families; and
WHEREAS, one of the mandates of the Grant is that the County must comply with Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 and 24 CFR Part 135 (collectively “Section 3 Requirements”); and
WHEREAS, the Section 3 Requirements represent HUD’s policy for providing preference to low- and very low-income residents of the community where the funds are spent (regardless of race or gender), and the businesses that substantially employ these persons for new employment, training, and contracting opportunities created from the usage of covered HUD funds; and
WHEREAS, the Section 3 Requirements apply to all Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) and all contractors that receive awards from PHAs, regardless of the dollar amount of the contract; and
WHEREAS, each PHA (and their contractors, subcontractors, or subrecipients) is required to comply with the requirements of Section 3 for employment, training, or contracting opportunities resulting from the expenditure of covered funding; and
WHEREAS, in addition to the Section 3 Requirements, the Grant requires the County to comply with HUD’s procurement regulations (“Procurement Requirements”); and
WHEREAS, the Procurement Requirements, which require PHAs, like the County, to “take all necessary affirmative steps to assure that minority firms, women's business enterprises, and labor surplus area firms are used when possible”; and
WHEREAS, it is essential that the County, MBS and any other contractors o subcontractors take all necessary steps to comply with the Section 3 Requirements and Procurement Requirements throughout all phases of the development and construction of the Scott-Carver HOPE VI project; and
WHEREAS, the Board desires a report regarding the County’s compliance with the Section 3 Requirements and Procurement Requirements,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:
Section 1. The matters contained in the foregoing recitals are incorporated in this resolution by reference.
Section 2. The Board directs the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee to provide a report within ninety (90) days from the effective date of this resolution concerning the County, MBS, any other contractors or subcontractors’ compliance with the Section 3 Requirements and Procurement Requirements. Said report, at a minimum, shall contain, but is not limited to the following information:
a. The total workforce on the Scott-Carver HOPE VI project broken down by phases (site prep phase and construction phase) and by job category (general laborer, mason, etc.);
b. The total number and names of Section 3 residents and Section 3 businesses concerns hired, including but not limited to (1) former Scott-Carver residents; (2) other public housing residents, (3) other HOPE VI area residents; and (4) other low-income residents.
