From: Carlos A. Gimenez
Mayor

Subject: Acceptance of Landscaping Improvements on County Property (Resources Recovery Facility)–
Buffer Landscape Plan for Doral Commons

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (Board) approve the attached Agreement between Terra Doral Commons Residential, LLC, a Florida limited liability company (the “Developer”) and Miami-Dade County (the “County”) for landscaping improvements as detailed in the attached “Doral Commons Buffer Landscape Plan.” The Developer proposes to donate and install landscaping improvements at its sole cost and expense within the boundaries of County-owned property located on the south side of NW 74 Street generally between 97 Avenue and NW 102 Avenue for the purpose of creating an aesthetic buffer between the Doral Commons residential development and the County’s Resources Recovery Facility (RRF). The Developer has agreed to maintain the landscaping improvements for a one (1) year period immediately following the completion of its installation and acceptance by the County. The proposed landscaping improvements will enhance the existing landscaped area adjacent to the RRF.

Scope
Installation of landscaping improvements by the Developer will add to the existing native plantings and create an aesthetic buffer for commuters as well as residents along NW 74 Street between NW 97 Avenue and NW 102 Avenue. This project is located in Commission District 12, Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
The Developer will obtain and install the landscaping improvements at its sole cost and expense. After the first year, maintenance of the landscaping improvements will be incorporated into the ongoing landscape maintenance program at the site. No additional costs from the landscaping improvements are anticipated and no specialized pruning or trimming is required because the native plant material requires little, if any maintenance.

Track Record/Monitor
This contract will be monitored by Frank Gomez, Division Director for Landfill Operations in the Public Works and Waste Management Department (PWWM).

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
As part of development of the Doral Commons PUD Development (“Doral Commons”), the Developer has proposed the donation, installation and limited maintenance of landscaping improvements within the RRF property located on the south side of NW 74 Street generally between NW 97 Avenue and NW
102 Avenue for the purpose of creating an aesthetic buffer between Doral Commons and the RRF. The proposed landscaping improvements include 176 Royal Palm trees, 78 Mahogany trees, and 520 Small Leaf Clusia shrubs.

The above described area contains native landscape plantings, but the proposed landscaping improvements will enhance the aesthetics and depth of the current buffer. The Developer will provide the landscaping improvements at its sole cost and expense. In addition, the Developer will provide maintenance for a period of one (1) year after the landscaping improvements have been installed and accepted by the County. The landscaping improvements will be the sole property of the County. The County will be under no legal obligation to replace any of the Developer provided landscaping improvements.
