REPORT: Assistant County Attorney Geri Bonzon-Keenan read the foregoing proposed resolution into the record and advised that it required an amendment. Assistant County Attorney Abbie Schwaderer advised that the following sentence should be added at the end of the resolution: “If, however, the Mayor or the Mayor’s designee deems that such an application for amendment to the Comprehensive Development Master Plan (CDMP) would not be feasible, the Mayor or Mayor’s designee shall submit an explanatory report to this Board no later than 60 days from the date of adoption of this resolution”. Chairwoman Edmonson asked whether the report would specify how they would accomplish the amendment if they determined that it was feasible. Assistant County Attorney Schwaderer explained that the resolution directed staff to prepare an amendment to the CDMP or if this was not feasible to submit an explanatory report. Commissioner Sosa asked the Assistant County Attorney to clarify whether all the resolution was requesting was for the Mayor to research the feasibility of preparing the amendment. She said she hoped that the Mayor would not prepare the amendment until the Board received the findings of the research. Assistant County Attorney Schwaderer clarified that if staff prepared an amendment to the CDMP, it would come to the Board through the regular CDMP amendment process after the study was conducted. Commissioner Monestime explained that his discussions with County staff had indicated that it was often difficult to establish mixed-use developments that encouraged flexibility and promoted live/work patterns. He said that it was necessary for the Board to consider finding how this could be done, especially since the latest trend was towards creating communities in which people could live, work and play. Commissioner Sosa noted it was necessary to see if it was advisable to establish an industrial enclave within a residential area. Hearing no further questions or comments, the Committee proceeded to vote on the foregoing proposed resolution, as amended.

TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE MAYOR OR DESIGNEE TO RESEARCH AND CONSIDER THE FEASIBILITY OF ADDING A NEW LAND USE CATEGORY TO THE MIAMI-DADE COUNTY COMPREHENSIVE DEVELOPMENT MASTER PLAN OR MODIFYING AN EXISTING LAND USE CATEGORY

BODY


WHEREAS, the Miami-Dade County Comprehensive Development Master Plan governs land use development in the County; and
WHEREAS, the County’s Comprehensive Development Master Plan includes land use categories such as Business and Office and Industrial and Office; and
WHEREAS, the Industrial and Office land use category limits the retail uses which may exist within industrial areas, and the Business and Office category restricts industrial uses in retail business areas; and
WHEREAS, the County’s Comprehensive Development Master Plan has no other land use category which generally allows retail uses together with light industrial uses such as warehouses; and
WHEREAS, the creation of a new land use category or the modification of an existing land use category to accommodate both general retail and light industrial uses could promote mixed use development, open up new avenues for development in the County, and allow for greater creativity in land uses,

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the Mayor or Mayor’s designee is directed to research and consider the feasibility of adding a new land use category to the County’s Comprehensive Development Master Plan, or modifying an existing land use category, to better accommodate both retail and light industrial uses. After such research and consideration, the Mayor or Mayor’s designee is directed to develop standards to govern the proposed land use category or modified land use category and prepare the appropriate application for consideration as an amendment to the Comprehensive Development Master Plan. Such application shall be filed in the October 2012 Comprehensive Development Master Plan amendment cycle. >>If, however, the Mayor or Mayor’s designee deems that such an application for amendment to the Comprehensive Development Master Plan would not be feasible, the Mayor or Mayor’s designee shall submit an explanatory report to this Board no later than 60 days from the date of adoption of this resolution.<<1


1 Committee amendments are indicated as follows: Words stricken through and/or [[double bracketed]] are deleted, words underscored and/or >>double arrowed<< are added.
