BODY

TITLE
WHEREAS, Miami-Dade County faces increasing competition from other metropolitan areas to attract and retain businesses in targeted, high-economic-impact industries and has no provision for development applications for such businesses to be directly considered by the Board of County Commissioners; and

WHEREAS, the Legislature of the State of Florida specifically declared in Section 288.106, Florida Statutes, that retaining and expanding businesses in the state, encouraging the creation of new businesses in the state, attracting new businesses from outside the state, and generally providing conditions favorable for the growth of target industries creates high-quality, high-wage employment opportunities for residents of the stat and strengthens the state’s economic foundation; and
WHEREAS, certain development projects that expand economic activity in the County are of statewide, regional, and Countywide importance and impact the general welfare and social, economic, and other requirements of citizens located throughout the entire County; and
