Subject: Joint Participation Agreement Between Miami-Dade County and the City of Miami Beach
to Provide People’s Transportation Plan (PTP) Funding up to a Maximum Amount of $500,000
for the Construction of a Safety Project Along Pine Tree Drive and La Gorce Drive from W
51 Street to W 63 Street and Authorizing the Use of Charter County Transportation Surtax Funds

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approve the attached resolution authorizing execution of a Joint Participation Agreement (JPA) between Miami-Dade County (County) and the City of Miami Beach (City) for the construction of safety improvements along Pine Tree Drive and La Gorce Drive from W 51 Street to W 63 Street (Project). The JPA provides funding through the Charter County Transportation Surtax (Surtax); therefore, approval by the BCC and the Citizens' Independent Transportation Trust (CITT) is required.

SCOPE
The Project is located within the City of Miami Beach, in Commission District 4.

FISCAL IMPACT/FUNDING SOURCE
The County agrees to provide funds up to a maximum amount of $500,000 for eligible costs incurred by the City for the construction of the Project. Funding will be allocated from Commission District 4’s yearly PTP allocation. The funding index code for this Project is CPEPTP604CAL.

DELEGATION OF AUTHORITY
No additional authority is being requested within the body of this contract.

TRACK RECORD/MONITOR
The County will utilize the resources of the City to contract and construct the Project on a reimbursable basis. Disbursement of County funds to the City shall be based upon invoices received from the City to include certified copies of invoices paid to the contractor. The Project will be assigned to Jeff Cohen, P.E., Assistant Chief, Traffic Engineering Division, Miami-Dade County Public Works and Waste Management Department (PWWMD), who will oversee inspections conducted by PWWMD staff before the release of funds is recommended.

As part of this JPA, the City agrees to comply with applicable County regulations including, but not limited to, the Community Small Business Enterprise Program, Community Business Enterprise Program, the Community Workforce Program, and the Responsible Wages and Benefits Ordinance (Ordinance No. 90-143).

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
BACKGROUND
A request was made to PWWMD by the La Gorce Pine Tree Homeowners Association (HOA) to convert Pine Tree Drive and La Gorce Drive from one-way to two-way traffic flow in order to improve traffic conditions and operational safety along these roadways, both of which are County-maintained. A subsequent traffic study recommended improvements that included median removal, resurfacing and the addition of a roundabout to implement the two-way conversion. Current funding shortfalls precluded implementing these improvements, and instead an alternative concept has been developed to address the safety concerns along these corridors.

The approved design is a result of a joint effort between the County, City and HOA that includes restriping both corridors, installing speed cushions, and signage. The City has worked with District Commissioner Sally Heyman to identify funding for Project costs, up to a maximum amount of $500,000.

Construction plans have been prepared by the County and the City has agreed to construct the Project on a reimbursable basis in order to expedite the completion date. It is therefore in the County’s best interest to utilize the resources of the City to complete the construction of the Project.

On September 14, 2011, the City Commission adopted Resolution No. 2011-27730, approving this JPA. The City will implement a Public Involvement Plan to provide information to property owners, tenants, and area residents for major work to be performed in the area. It is anticipated that construction will be completed within 45 days after the issuance of a Notice to Proceed.
