Commissioner Diaz requested to be listed as a co-sponsor to the foregoing proposed resolution. Commissioner Jordan inquired whether there was any cost associated with compiling the information. Mary Fuentes, Director, Information Technology Department (ITD) responded to Commissioner Jordan’s inquiry noting some of the information requested in the resolution existed within the county’s geographic information system, with the exception of broker representation; she noted staff would analyze the potential cost of obtaining information regarding broker representation for the properties. Commissioner Jordan requested that Ms. Fuentes forward committee members a copy of these costs before the resolution goes to the full Board. Responding to Commissioner Jordan’s inquiry regarding how the Beacon Council had promoted Miami-Dade County’s available land in the past, Ms. Fuentes stated that staff would develop a business portal that would include all of the information requested in this proposed resolution and the Beacon Council would have access to this information as well as all of the business community located within Miami-Dade County. Hearing no further questions or comments the Committee proceeded to vote.
