BODY


WHEREAS, pursuant to Resolution No. R-355-07 this Board designated the Magic City Children’s Zone and urged the State legislature to create the Magic City Children’s Zone Pilot Project; and
WHEREAS, pursuant to Section 409.147, Florida Statutes (the “Statute”), the State legislature created within the Liberty City neighborhood in Miami-Dade County a 10-year pilot project zone for the purpose of creating a community based service network that develops, coordinates, and provides quality education, accessible health care, youth development programs, opportunities for employment, and safe and affordable housing for children and families living within its boundaries and has appropriated State funds for this effort (the “Miami Children’s Initiative Project”); and
WHEREAS, in accordance with the Statute, the State through its Department of Children and Families contracted with the Ounce Prevention Fund of Florida (“Ounce”) to, among other things, provide fiscal oversight for the pilot project and technical assistance for the development and implementation of the strategic community plan, and delegated to Ounce the task of establishing the Miami Children’s Initiative, Inc., the non-profit entity organized for the purpose of managing Miami Children’s Initiative Project; and
WHEREAS, the Miami Children’s Initiative Project is a collaborative effort among the State, the County, Miami Children’s Initiative and the private sector; and
WHEREAS, pursuant to Resolution No. R-1277-08, as amended by Resolution No. R-933-09, this Board encouraged Ounce to create the Miami Children’s Initiative, Inc. to facilitate fundraising, secure broad community ownership of the Miami Children’s Initiative Project, and oversee implementation of the strategic community plan; and
WHEREAS, Ounce, on behalf of Miami Children’s Initiative, Inc. as its fiscal agent, currently uses 4,155 square feet of office space at the Miami-Dade County-owned Caleb Center located at 5400 N.W. 22nd Avenue, Miami, to operate administrative offices in furtherance of the Miami Children’s Initiative Project pursuant to a permit agreement; and
WHEREAS, Miami Children’s Initiative, Inc. has been created and organized and as such it desires to lease the office space directly from the County to operate administrative offices in furtherance of its stated mission; and
WHEREAS, the Miami Children’s Initiative, Inc. has applied to the County for use of the office space and has requested that the County grant such space free of rent and maintenance as a local government agency financial contribution to the Miami Children’s Initiative Project; and
WHEREAS, presently Miami Children’s Initiative, Inc., through Ounce, pays the County approximately $77,800 in annual rent and maintenance costs for this space; and
WHEREAS, the County is satisfied Miami Children’s Initiative, Inc. does require the County-owned space for such use and the space is not otherwise needed for County purposes; and
WHEREAS, this Board wishes to lease to Miami Children’s Initiative the office space for an initial two year term with a renewal option for one additional two year period for nominal value ($10) as a local government agency financial contribution,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:
Section 1. The foregoing recitals are incorporated herein and are approved.
Section 2. This Board hereby approves the terms of the Lease between Miami-Dade County and Miami Children’s Initiative, Inc. for premises to be utilized solely for administration offices of the Miami Children’s Initiative, Inc. at nominal rent ($10) for the initial two year term of the lease and the renewal option of one additional two year period, all in substantially the form attached hereto and made a part hereof by this reference. This Board hereby authorizes the County Mayor or the Mayor’s designee to execute the same for and on behalf of Miami-Dade County and to exercise any cancellation provisions, renewal provisions and all other rights conferred therein.
