TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE MAYOR OR DESIGNEE TO PREPARE A REPORT REGARDING COUNTY CONVEYANCES OF PROPERTY IN PAST TWENTY YEARS

BODY
WHEREAS, Miami-Dade County has conveyed property directly to specific entities over the past twenty years for the purposes of economic development, promoting community interest and welfare, and for affordable housing; and
WHEREAS, in certain cases, vacant properties are conveyed to such entities, requiring certain development to be performed within designated timeframes, and failure to so comply can result in reverter of the property to the County; and
WHEREAS, since the Board is required to approve such conveyances, a report identifying the properties which have been conveyed, together with the current status of such development commitments would provide the Board with a global perspective,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:
Section 1. This Board ratifies and adopts the matters set forth in the foregoing recitals.
Section 2. This Board directs the Mayor or designee to prepare a report regarding conveyances of developable property worth in excess of $15,000, which were made to specific entities in the past twenty years, including long term leases (over twenty years) and conveyances of properties with or without a right of reverter, but excluding short term leases, easements, conveyances via competitive bidding, and conveyances to governmental entities. For each particular conveyance, the report shall address, at a minimum:
1. The street address of the property (or the street location if there is no formal address);
2. The folio number;
3. The amount the County received for compensation, or receives in the form of lease payments, if any;
4. The status of the construction on the conveyed property;
5. The status of the commitments made on the property regarding development, including whether the entity is currently in compliance with any and all requirements of the conveyance; and
6. The length of time left on any long term lease.
Section 3. The report shall be placed on the appropriate Commission committee agenda within ninety (90) days from the adoption of this resolution.
