TITLE
RESOLUTION CREATING A WORKING GROUP TO MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS ON A PERMANENT URBAN DEVELOPMENT BOUNDARY (UDB) AND ON RESTRICTIVE PROCEDURES SHOULD FUTURE UDB AMENDMENTS BECOME NECESSARY

BODY

WHEREAS, as set forth in Miami-Dade County’s Comprehensive Development Master Plan (CDMP), Miami-Dade County values excellence in urban planning and the preservation of the County’s agricultural lands and natural resources; and
WHEREAS, one of the most essential components of the CDMP is the Urban Development Boundary, which separates the areas where urban development should occur from areas where it should not occur, provides for the orderly and efficient construction of infrastructure, encourages urban infill and redevelopment, discourages urban sprawl, and helps to conserve agricultural and environmentally-sensitive lands; and
WHEREAS, the Miami-Dade County Code currently provides for amendments to expand the UDB to be filed every two years; and
WHEREAS, since 1991, amendments to the UDB have generally been considered in a piecemeal fashion based on individual private applications, often resulting in numerous contentious public hearings; and
WHEREAS, this Board wishes to undertake a comprehensive review of the UDB and to consider establishing a permanent UDB that can only be amended in very restrictive circumstances, to provide greater certainty in the County’s comprehensive plan and its vision to balance the County’s urban development with its preservation efforts; and
WHEREAS, a small working group of stakeholders from the environmental and development communities could make recommendations to the Board as to how to best create a permanent Urban Development Boundary with restrictive procedures should future UDB amendments become necessary,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the County Mayor or designee is directed to create a Working Group to make recommendations to the Board relating to (1) the establishment of a permanent Urban Development Boundary and (2) the establishment of very restrictive procedures for future amendments to the UDB, including a requirement that further UDB expansions shall require the unanimous approval of this Board. The Working Group shall consist of the following nine members: the Director of the Environmental & Land Use Law Clinic at the Nova Southeastern Shepard Broad Law Center or designee; the Executive Director of the Tropical Audobon Society or designee; the President of the Urban Environment League of Greater Miami or designee; the President of the Latin Builders Association or designee; the President of the South Florida Builders Association or designee; the President of the Florida East Coast Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc., or designee; the President of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce or designee; the President of the Beacon Council or designee; and the Miami-Dade County Deputy Mayor with responsibility over the Department of Sustainability, Planning and Economic Enhancement or designee. Miami-Dade County staff, including the Chief of Metropolitan Planning of the Department of Sustainability, Planning and Economic Enhancement, shall provide support to the Working Group. Within 90 days of the effective date of this resolution, the working group shall prepare a report and recommendation for the Board. Under no circumstances shall this task force exist for one year or more after the effective date of this Resolution.
