HEADER
Date:

To: Honorable Chairman Joe A. Martinez
and Members, Board of County Commissioners

From: Carlos A. Gimenez
Mayor

Subject: Request for Lease with State of Florida for Uplands Along Beaches of Bal Harbour Village and the Town of Surfside

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (Board) adopt the attached resolution requesting a lease with the State of Florida (State) for management of uplands along the beaches of Bal Harbour Village (Bal Harbour) and the Town of Surfside (Surfside).

Scope
Bal Harbour and Surfside are located in County Commission District 4; however, the beach areas in the lease request are a regional asset.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
The Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department (PROS) maintains the uplands along the beach within Bal Harbour and Surfside at a cost of approximately $400,000 per year from the PROS general fund allocation, index code PREBCH438005, Beach Operations. Applying for the lease will have no additional fiscal impact.

Track Record/Monitor
The property management section supervisor for PROS, Randy Koper, will monitor and manage the lease application.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
PROS has maintained the uplands portion of the beach areas in Surfside and Bal Harbour Village without a formal lease agreement with the State. Miami-Dade County (County) has provided maintenance to these beaches for more than thirty years without any authority to manage activities or events taking place on these beaches. The State and the County desire to formalize the arrangement so that PROS, as the local entity that maintains the area will be given direct management to better administer the upland area.

In holding the lease for the beaches within Bal Harbour and Surfside, PROS will have management authority that will greatly enhance the ability to clean and maintain these beaches for the enjoyment of all. Concessions, special events and activities will require a permit and be bound by guidelines and procedures to safeguard our natural resources. Additionally, the County will establish and enforce rules and procedures for the hours of operation of concessionaires, proper overnight storage of beach furniture, proper usage of area behind an upland property which may be pre-set with beach chairs and cleanliness requirements. The County already holds a similar State lease for Sunny Isles Beach.

Both municipalities, Surfside and Bal Harbour, support the Countyís application for the lease from the State for the beach upland areas located east of Collins Avenue, from 87th Terrace north to Bakerís Haulover Inlet (Attachment A and B). Surfside, Bal Harbour and PROS will collaboratively coordinate the development of an upland areas management plan that will be submitted to the State upon approval of the lease. The management plan will specify to the State how PROS will manage the leased property and will remain consistent with County, Surfside and Bal Harbour Codes.
The PROS application to the State for the lease (Attachment C) requires the accompanying Board resolution requesting the lease. Upon the approval of the State lease application, a second resolution for the approval of the lease will be presented to the Board.
