TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING COUNTY MAYOR OR DESIGNEE TO CONDUCT AN ANALYSIS OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR INFILL DEVELOPMENT WITHIN THE URBAN INFILL AREA

BODY

WHEREAS, the health, safety, welfare, comfort and convenience of the present and future residents of Miami-Dade County are dependent upon the orderly development and minimal degradation of the natural ecosystems of the lands of Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, as set forth in Miami-Dade County’s Comprehensive Development Master Plan, 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 Comprehensive Development Master Plan 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, within the Urban Development Boundary, the County has further designated the area located east of, and including SR 826 and NW/SW 77th Avenue, excluding the area north of SR 826 and west of I-95, as the Urban Infill Area; and
WHEREAS, there may be areas within the Urban Infill Area that could be developed or further developed, thereby limiting the increase of urban sprawl and the desire to expand beyond the Urban Development Boundary; and
WHEREAS, pursuant to Resolution No. 1477-96, an Infill Strategy Task Force was created to study infill and redevelopment opportunities within the Urban Development Boundary; and
WHEREAS, the Infill Strategy Task Force released a Final Report in December 1997 that made a number of findings and recommendations to promote infill and redevelopment within the Urban Development Boundary; and
WHEREAS, the Infill Strategy Task Force’s 1997 Final Report recommended that mass transit service be upgraded and infrastructure projects be pursued within the Urban Development Boundary; and
WHEREAS, to assist the County in evaluating opportunities for infill development within the Urban Development Boundary today, the findings and recommendations set forth in the Infill Strategy Task Force’s 1997 Final Report should be revisited and updated,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the Board of County Commissioners hereby directs the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee to, within 90 days of the effective date of this resolution, provide a report to this Board regarding: (1) the status of the recommendations and strategies set forth in the Infill Strategy Task Force’s 1997 Final Report; and (2) an analysis of transit and infrastructure deficiencies and impediments to infill development and redevelopment in existing and planned zoned urban center/urban area districts, including premium transit corridors, within the Urban Infill Area, as defined in the Comprehensive Development Master Plan.
