TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR COUNTY MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO PREPARE AND PRESENT TO THE BOARD WITHIN SIXTY (60) DAYS A REPORT REGARDING THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF THE POINCIANA INDUSTRIAL PARK

BODY
WHEREAS, the community neighboring the Poinciana Industrial Park site suffers from unacceptably high unemployment; and
WHEREAS, in August, 2011, the Mayor ended negotiations with InnoVida Holdings, which had been recommended for award of a portion of Poinciana Industrial Park; and
WHEREAS, the decision to terminate discussions with InnoVida was in the best interest of the County, but was the only active effort to bring industry to the County-owned property; and
WHEREAS, a comprehensive package of incentives and a plan for attracting new business prospects to Poinciana Park was requested by the District Commissioner in August 2011; and
WHEREAS, effective reuse of the Poinciana Industrial Park can spark new business growth and jobs in the neighboring community and Miami-Dade County as a whole; and
WHEREAS, the County should aggressively develop a plan to effectively market the Poinciana Industrial Park for appropriate industrial or commercial economic reuse without delay,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the Board directs the County Mayor or the County Mayor’s designee to provide a report to the Board within sixty (60) days of the effective date of this resolution. The report shall include, but shall not be limited to, the following:
a. Identifies the types of industries that the County should focus on recruiting into the Poinciana Industrial Park based on larger market trends and the specific attributes of the Poinciana properties; and
b. Identifies County, State, and Federal programs that can assist in public infrastructure improvements as well as tax abatement or rebate programs available to prospective investors; and
