WHEREAS, the Florida Legislature enacted the Community Redevelopment Act of 1969 during its 1969 Legislative Session, which enactment is presently codified in the Florida Statutes as Part III of Chapter 163, Sections 163.330 through 163.450, as amended from time to time (the "Act"); and
WHEREAS, all powers arising through the Act are conferred by the Act upon counties with Home Rule Charters, which counties in turn are authorized to delegate certain of such powers to a community redevelopment agency created pursuant to the Act; and
WHEREAS, on May 5, 2009, the Board of County Commissioners of Miami-Dade County, Florida (the "Board") adopted Resolution No. R-566-09 which resolution declared a certain geographic area of unincorporated Miami-Dade County known as NW 79 Street Corridor that is generally bounded on the North by NW 87th Street, on the East by NW 7th Avenue, on the west by NW 37th Avenue and on the South by NW 62nd Street (the "NW 79th Street Corridor Community Redevelopment Area"), to be a slum or blighted area, declared the rehabilitation, conservation or redevelopment, or combination thereof, to be necessary in the interest of public health, safety, morals or welfare of the residents of the County and found the need for the creation of a community redevelopment agency; and

Pursuant to the provisions of Section 163.356, Florida Statutes, this Board created a public body corporate and politic to be known as the NW 79th Street Corridor Community Redevelopment Agency (the "Agency"). The Agency shall be constituted as a public instrumentality and the exercise by the Agency of the powers conferred by the Act and delegated by the Board shall be deemed and held to be the performance of an essential public function.
Section 2. Purpose.
The purpose of the Agency is to carry out the community redevelopment purposes of the Act.
Section 3. Membership.
(a) The board of commissioners of the Agency shall consist of not fewer than five or more than nine commissioners. The terms of office of the commissioners shall be for four (4) years, except that three of the members first appointed shall be designated to serve terms of one (1), two (2) and three (3) years, respectively, from the date of their appointments, and all other members shall be designated to serve for terms of four (4) years from the date of their appointments. A vacancy occurring during a term shall be filled for the un-expired term. Any person may be appointed as commissioner if he or she resides or is engaged in business, which means owning a business, practicing a profession, or performing a service for compensation, or serving as an officer or director of a corporation or other business entity so engaged, within the area of operation of the agency, which shall be coterminous with the area of operation of the County, and is otherwise eligible for such appointment under the Act. Each commissioner shall hold office until his or her successor has been appointed and has qualified. A certificate of the appointment or reappointment of any commissioner shall be filed with the Clerk of the Board, and such certificate shall be conclusive evidence of the due and proper appointment of such commissioner.
(b) A commissioner shall receive no compensation for services, but is entitled to the necessary expenses, including travel expenses, incurred in the discharge of duties.
(c) The Board may remove a commissioner for inefficiency, neglect of duty or misconduct in office only after a hearing and only if he or she has been given a copy of the charges at least ten (10) days prior to such hearing and has had an opportunity to be heard in person or by counsel.

(b) Meetings. The powers of the Agency shall be exercised by the commissioners thereof. A majority of the commissioners constitutes a quorum for the purpose of conducting business and exercising the powers of the agency and for all other purposes. Action may be taken by the Agency upon a vote of a majority of the commissioners present, unless in any case the bylaws require a larger number.
Section 5. Public officials, commissioners and employees subject to code of ethics.
(a) The officers, commissioners and employees of the Agency shall be subject to the provisions and requirements of Part III of Chapter 112, Florida Statutes, and Section 2-11.1 of the Code of Miami-Dade County, Florida.
(b) If any official, commissioner or employee presently owns or controls, or owned or controlled within the preceding two (2) years, any interest, direct or indirect, in any property which he or she knows is included or planned to be included in the NW 79th Street Corridor Community Redevelopment Area, he or she shall immediately disclose this fact in the manner provided in Part III of Chapter 112, Florida Statutes. Any disclosure required to be made by this section shall be made prior to taking any official action.
(c) No commissioner or other officer of the Agency exercising powers pursuant to the Act shall hold any other public office under the County other than his or her commissionership or office with respect to such Agency.
Section 6. Powers.
(a) The Board hereby delegates the following community redevelopment powers to the Agency in accordance with the Act:
(i) Initiate, prepare and adopt a plan of redevelopment and any amendments thereto, which plan and amendments shall be subject to subsequent review and approval by the Board; and
(ii) All powers not specifically delegated to the Agency are reserved exclusively by the Board.
(b) The Agency cannot commit itself or the County to any expenditure of funds without the specific approval of the Board.
Section 7. Staff.
The County Manager and the Office of the County Attorney shall provide to the Agency adequate staff and support services to enable it to carry out its purposes.
Section 8. Appointments.
