From: Carlos A. Gimenez
Mayor

Subject: Resolution Ratifying an Existing Restrictive Covenant and Granting the Mayor Authority to execute a new Restrictive Covenant on the Historic Hampton House Motel for a Historic Preservation Grant with the State of Florida

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (the Board) grant the County Mayor or the County Mayor’s designee the authority to execute a Restrictive Covenant on the Historic Hampton House Motel, in favor of the Florida Department of State, Division of Historical Resources, Bureau of Historic Preservation, in the event that the Historic Hampton House Community Trust, Inc. (the Trust) receives a 2013 Special Category Rollover Grant in the amount of $350,000 for use in the rehabilitation of the Historic Hampton House Motel (the Hampton House). As part of the 2013 Special Category Rollover Grant application submitted by the Trust, the County executed two supporting documents:

* An owner concurrence form to demonstrate that the County, as the owner of the property, agrees with the application submitted by the Trust and the proposed project; and

* An agreement to execute a restrictive covenant committing the County to maintain the property in accordance with good preservation practice and applicable standards for ten years.

It is also recommended that the Board ratify the Restrictive Covenant on the Hampton House Motel that was administratively executed and recorded following receipt of similar historic preservation funding from the State of Florida in 2007 and that the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee be granted the authorization to execute future grant-related agreements, consents, and restrictive covenants with the State of Florida, Division of Historical Resources and the Trust for the Hampton House.

SCOPE
The Hampton House is located at 4240 NW 27 Avenue, Miami, Florida, in Commission District 3. The folio number for this property is 30-3121-000-1316.

FISCAL IMPACT/FUNDING SOURCE
The County owns the Hampton House and receipt of this grant by the Trust will be used for the rehabilitation and acquisition of furniture and fixtures for use in the facility upon completion of the facility’s restoration.

The Trust previously applied for and on July 1, 2007 received from the State of Florida, Division of Historical Resources a grant in the amount of $350,000. These resources were expended by the Trust for the rehabilitation of the Hampton House. On September 14, 2009, the Trust received a letter from the State acknowledging that the expenditures of the grant award had met all of the State’s expenditure requirements.

In addition to any funds received by the State, the Hampton House restoration project also has $1.444 million in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and $6.5 million in Better Building Communities General Obligation Bond program funding.

TRACK RECORD/MONITORING
As result of the grant award in 2007, a restrictive covenant was executed by staff and recorded on the Hampton House property. The term of that covenant is ten years. [MDC1] By approval of this resolution, the Board ratifies the 2007 restrictive covenant and authorizes the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee to execute and record a new restrictive covenant on the property for an additional ten years, if the Trust receives the 2013 Special Category Rollover Grant. While the restrictive covenant [MDC2]is in effect, no modifications may be made to the property, other than routine repairs and maintenance, without advance review and approval of the plans and specifications by the Florida Department of State[MDC3], Division of Historical Resources, Bureau of Historic Preservation.

The Hampton House restoration project is being administered by General Services Administration (GSA); however, the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) monitors the CDBG funding through its review of quarterly progress reports. With the assistance of GSA’s Design and Construction Services Division, DHCD will monitor this project to ensure compliance with federal guidelines.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
BACKGROUND
The Hampton House, which is owned by Miami-Dade County, was designated as a historic property by the Miami-Dade County Historic Preservation Board on April 17, 2002. Opened in 1954 as one of a handful of segregation-era motels and entertainment centers in Miami that catered to Black celebrities, local musicians and Black families vacationing or visiting South Florida, the Hampton House has suffered from neglect and inclement weather causing the building structure to be dilapidated and in need of serious repair. In 2002, the Board directed the County Manager, through Resolution R-419-02, to work with the Trust to investigate the renovation, adaptive reuse and public acquisition of the facility.

The Trust membership has been engaged in a series of fundraising activities designed to augment the County’s investment in the Hampton House. As part of its fundraising activities, the Trust applied for and received a previous grant from the State of Florida, Division of Historical Resources in the amount of $350,000.

Recently, the Trust applied for a 2012 Special Category Grant in the amount of $350,000. This grant was initially awarded to the Trust but was subsequently defunded due to the State of Florida’s budget constraints. The State is now directing only those applicants that were awarded grants, but not funded in 2012 to apply for the 2013 Fiscal Year Rollover Special Category Grant.
