MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
This item relates to the Governmental Facilities approval process provided in Section 33-303 of the County Code. Specifically, this item requests Board approval of a proposed site plan for Gratigny Plateau Park, a passive mini-park described below. Public meetings were held by the PROS Department with neighborhood residents on May 10, May 17, and June 7, 2012. Neighborhood residents expressed a desire for safety and security as the park is developed.

Governmental Facilities - Gratigny Plateau Park

LOCATION: 885 NW 117th Street, unincorporated Miami-Dade County.

FOLIO NUMBERS: 30-2135-013-1020, 30-2135-013-1030, 30-2135-013-1040

SIZE: Approximately 0.96 acres

ZONING: RU-1, Single-Family Residential (7,500 sq. ft. net).

JUSTIFICATION: This application is being processed as a Governmental Facility to allow PROS to develop a passive mini park. The application will allow PROS to develop a public facility that serves the local population of north Miami-Dade County.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The park property is located at 885 NW 117th Street and consists of three (3) separate parcels situated in the middle of a single-family residential neighborhood. The parcels lie on the north and south sides of NW 117th Street and the north and south sides of NW 116th Street, with sixteen (16) residential homes directly adjoining the park property. Paving materials which create a flower stem with leaves and petals design on park grounds delineate areas for activities, including learning play stations and other types of play structures. The park will also feature: animal sculptures; bicycle racks; four 7’7” high, 8.3 square foot face copy park rules signs and two 4’6” high, 15.9 square foot face copy park entry signs; litter bins; and benches. For enhanced safety, the applicant proposes an eight (8) foot high metal rail fence along the park’s perimeter, except where the park fronts a street. Where the park fronts a street, a three (3) foot high aluminum post decorative fence with aluminum pickets is proposed.

SITE REVIEW
COMMITTEE: The committee’s task is to review projects subject to 33-303 of the Code of Miami-Dade County with regard to the public need for the proposed facility, its impact upon the surrounding community, and other similar considerations. The committee reviewed this project on November 29, 2012 and recommended approval.

PUBLIC HEARING: Section 33-303 of the Code of Miami-Dade County provides that, prior to the construction, erection or operation of a government facility in the unincorporated areas of Miami-Dade County, a favorable public hearing before the Board is required. The Board may only authorize the use, construction, erection and operation of such facilities in any zoning district after considering, among other factors, the public need for the facility, the type of function involved, existing land use patterns in that area and the nature of the impact of the facility on surrounding properties. The attached report from the Miami-Dade County Site Review Committee addresses these factors.

REVIEWER: Gilberto Blanco, Supervisor

DELEGATED
AUTHORITY: This resolution approves the site plan for the Gratigny Plateau Park.
