TITLE
RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR THE COUNTY MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO ACCEPT VACANT LAND CONVEYED TO MIAMI-DADE COUNTY BY QUIT CLAIM DEED FROM BROWNSVILLE HOMEOWNERS PURSUANT TO THE BROWNSVILLE TORNADO RELIEF PROJECT

BODY
WHEREAS, this Board desires to accomplish the purposes outlined in the accompanying memorandum, a copy of which is incorporated herein by reference,

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board adopts the foregoing recitals and hereby authorizes the County Mayor or the County Mayor’s designee to accept Quit Claim Deeds from Brownsville Homeowners pursuant to the Brownsville Homeowners Tornado Project, in substantially the form attached hereto, subject to approval by the County Attorney.

HEADER
Date:

To: Honorable Chairperson Joe A. Martinez
and Members, Board of County Commissioners

From: Carlos A. Gimenez
Mayor

Subject: Resolution Authorizing Acceptance of Quit Claim Deeds from Brownsville Homeowners as per the Brownsville Tornado Relief Project Agreement
..Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) authorize the County Mayor or the County Mayor’s designee to accept conveyances of vacant land in the Brownsville community. This vacant land is being or may be conveyed by the property owners to Miami-Dade County (County) pursuant to Brownsville Tornado Relief Project Agreements entered with Miami-Dade County once each homeownership loan is executed. In 2003, a tornado hit the northern end of the County in the Brownsville neighborhood and damaged 14 homes located throughout the Brownsville community. As a result of the storm, the BCC adopted Resolution R-355-03 to create the Brownsville Tornado Relief Project to assist in the recovery efforts.

Scope
As part of the Brownsville Tornado Relief Project Agreements between Miami-Dade County and Brownsville homeowners, those homeowners that have elected to purchase County-owned rehabilitated properties in lieu of reconstructing their existing homes, have agreed to execute a Quit Claim Deed transferring their property to the County, upon the BCC’s approval of a resolution accepting the property.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
There are four properties in the Brownsville area, which will be conveyed to the County pursuant to this resolution. The land will be conveyed to the County for nominal ($10) consideration, pursuant to Brownsville Tornado Relief Project Agreements between Miami-Dade County and Brownsville Tornado Relief Project homeowners; therefore, there is no acquisition cost to the County. Only parcels which are free and clear of any encumbrances and liens will be accepted pursuant to this resolution, so there will be no costs necessary to remove liens from property. It is estimated that the yearly maintenance of each parcel will be $600.00 per year and thus, the maximum maintenance costs for all of the Brownsville properties which can possibly be conveyed to the County pursuant to this resolution will be $2,400.00.

Track Record/Monitor
A Quit Claim Deed will be executed by the homeowners transferring the properties to DHCD (See Attachment A). DHCD will ensure that the Deeds are properly filed and recorded with the Clerk of the Courts.

BODY
In March 2003, a tornado hit the northern end of the County in the Brownsville neighborhood and damaged 14 homes located throughout the Brownsville community. Many of the residents in these neighborhoods did not have the necessary resources for recovery since many were uninsured or underinsured. The impacted areas were older, densely populated, inner city residential and commercial neighborhoods, including single-family homes, businesses, and apartments. As a result of the storm, the BCC adopted Resolution R-355-03 to create the Brownsville Tornado Relief Project to assist in the recovery efforts. Originally there were 14 homeowners slated to participate in the Brownsville Tornado Relief Project, however four homeowners decided not participate; reducing the number of participants to ten. Of the remaining ten, three homes have been completed; construction will begin for four homes by December 2011; and three have elected to purchase County-owned rehabilitated properties in lieu of reconstruction of their properties.

The approval of this item will authorize the acceptance of properties from Federico Rodriguez and Maria P. St. Clair (2967 NW 59 Street and 5700 NW 31 Avenue, respectively - see Attachment B) to replace the County-owned properties. Additionally, it is anticipated that there are two additional parcels of property that will be conveyed to the County by quit claim deed over the next two years, and this resolution would authorize acceptance of those properties. A complete list of all of the addresses, legal descriptions, and other pertinent information of the properties which are ready to be conveyed to the County are attached to this memorandum.
