Subject: Resolution Accepting Conveyance of Vacant Lands from Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami, Inc.


STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (Board) in the best interest of Miami-Dade County (County) accept conveyance of two (2) vacant Infill Housing lots from Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami, Inc. (Habitat). The lots cannot be developed as required in the County Deed and Habitat would like to return the vacant lots.

Scope
The 15,105 square foot lot, folio number 30-3111-024-0070, was assessed at $28,700; and the 5,489 square foot lot, folio number 01-3114-000-0130, was assessed at $19,743 in 2011. The referenced lots are both located in Commission District 3.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
The lands will be conveyed to the County for the nominal ten dollars ($10) consideration. Public Housing and Community Development (PHCD) has estimated the annual maintenance costs for both lots conveyed to the County pursuant to this resolution will be $1,017 ($746 for folio 30-3111-024-0070 and $271 for folio 01-3114-000-0130).

Track Record/Monitor
Quit Claim Deeds have been executed by Habitat transferring the property to the County. PHCD will ensure that the Deeds are properly filed and recorded with the Clerk of the Courts. Internal Services Department (ISD) will maintain the lots and the two lots will go back into the Countyís surplus land inventory administered by ISD. This project will be monitored by Alan S. Eson, PHCD Real Estate Officer.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
Habitat has been constructing affordable housing as part of the Hope VI redevelopment project and requested that the County convey these two (2) lots to them since they are located in the Hope VI Expansion Area. The Board adopted Resolutions No. R-415-08 April 8, 2008 authorizing the conveyance of these two lots to Habitat for folio number 30-3111-024-0070; and the Board adopted Resolution R-1356-09 December 1, 2009 for folio number 01-3114-000-0130.†

The County Deed restriction requires that the lots be developed with affordable single family housing. However, when Habitat attempted to obtain building permits they were informed by the City of Miamiís Right-of-Way Division that a large portion of the parcel with folio number 01-3114-000-0130 was needed for a road right-of-way, and thus the parcel would be reduced in size. The parcel with folio number 30-3111-024-0070 also had issues with road access, thus rendering both parcels unbuildable.† Habitat therefore, seeks to convey these two parcels back to the County as demonstrated by the two (2) Quit Claim Deeds attached hereto as Attachments A and B.† †Title searches were performed and the lots are free of encumbrances.† The two lots will go back into the Countyís surplus land inventory administered by the Internal Services Department.

Habitat agreed to build affordable single family homes for the Infill Program. Habitat has maintained the properties as agreed and performed their due diligence to develop the properties however; due to right-of-way issues they were unable to develop the lots as intended. There are no encumbrances or unpaid taxes due on the lots and Habitat wishes to voluntarily convey the lots to the County in accordance to the reverter in the County Deed and County Agreements.
