Subject: Joint Participation Agreement Between Miami-Dade County and the City of Homestead
to Provide the City of Homestead with Funding in an Amount up to $2,000,000.00 for
the Acquisition of Right-of-Way and Easements, Including the Subordination of Utilities,
for a Roadway Project Along SW 328 Street from US-1 to SW 162 Avenue

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approve the attached resolution authorizing execution of a Joint Participation Agreement (JPA) between Miami-Dade County (County) and the City of Homestead (City) to reimburse the City for the acquisition of right-of-way and easements, including the subordination of utilities, (Property) for a roadway improvement project along SW 328 Street from US-1 to SW 162 Avenue (Project).

Scope
The Property to be acquired lies within the City in Commissioner Lynda Bellís District 8, and Commissioner Dennis C. Mossí District 9.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
The County will provide up to $2,000,000.00 from Road Impact Fee District 6 funds. The funding index code is CPE06C.

Track Record/Monitor
Francisco Fernandez, Chief Real Estate Officer, Roadway Engineering and Right-of-Way Division, Public Works and Waste Management Department, will review the Property acquisitions and submissions for the accounting of eligible costs provided by the City.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
The City requested that the County utilize Road Impact Fee funding to cover the costs of the acquisition of Property within the City of Homestead associated with the Project. The total amount necessary for these acquisitions has been estimated at a cost of $2,000,000.00.

The construction of the Project is a priority for the City as SW 328 Street (Lucy Street) is a major east/west corridor. The Project will provide an increase in traffic capacity for residential and commercial development, improve traffic mobility, provide ADA compliance, and ensure the availability of multiple modes of transportation. The area is comprised of major retailers, local businesses, and agricultural production that generate economic support and employment which benefits the southern portion of Miami-Dade County.

The Project will be constructed by the County and include widening the existing roadway from two (2) to four (4) lanes, sidewalks, curb and gutters, raised median, bicycle facilities, a continuous storm drainage system, signing and pavement markings, signalization and decorative lighting.

The County will furnish the funded amount within 90 days of the final execution of this JPA. The City will provide to the County documentation including all eligible costs incurred on a parcel by parcel basis every 90 days. In the event final accounting of the total eligible costs is less than the funded amount, a refund of the excess amount will be made by the City to the County. The City further agrees that any costs in excess of the funded amount required to acquire the Property shall be borne solely by the City.

The City Council approved this JPA on March 20, 2013, under City Resolution No. R2013-03-17 (attached). The Project is tentatively scheduled to begin construction by July 2014.
