MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
This item seeks approval for expenditure of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds in an amount not to exceed $30,000.00 to demolish two (2) structures situated on four (4) parcels of County-owned land formerly utilized as the Liberty City Health Center to eliminate blight in the area. The four parcels of real property are located at 1312, 1320, 1330, and 1342 NW 62 Street, Miami, Florida 33147. Although there are no liens filed against these sites, the City of Miami has confirmed that parcels 1320 and 1342 have open and unresolved unsafe structures cases filed against the respective sites. The demolition of the referenced sites will resolve the unsafe structures cases filed against the property. Pursuant to Resolution No. R-702-13 the PHT property was declassified and transferred back to the County for the purpose of demolishing two (2) structures situated on four (4) parcels. Demolition of the facilities will include fencing and securing of site and removal of the following: all debris from site, all footings, underground utilities and sewer cap. The Department will oversee the demolition activity and has estimated the cost will not exceed $30,000.00. The Department has also determined that the activity qualifies under the CDBG criteria of Slums and Blight on a Spot Basis. The CDBG funds will be used to complete the project in accordance with 24 CFR Part 570.208(b)(2).

Per Resolution No. R-627-13 the Board approved an allocation of funds to Public Housing and Community Development for demolition of a vacant public housing development (Modello). The Department does not anticipate using all of the funds allocated to the demolition activity and will expend not more than $30,000.00 for this proposed activity.

Citizen Participation Requirements
The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development requires that substantial amendments to Annual Action Plans be made available for public comments for a period of 30 calendar days prior to the final adoption of the funding recommendations by the Board. A Public Hearing notice was issued on October 24, 2013, informing the public that the Board will take final action on December 3, 2013. The notice was advertised in The Miami Herald and posted on the County’s Legal Ads and Notices website and communicated to the Community Advisory Committees. The 30 day public comment period for the recommendations is from October 24, 2013 through November 30, 2013. Additionally, notice of the public hearing will be advertised in the following community periodicals: Diario Las Americas, The Miami Times and Haiti en Marche. Pursuant to Resolution No. R-697-11 to ensure community participation, Community Advisory Committees were provided a copy of the recommendation in this resolution.

Approval of the recommendation herein will enable Miami-Dade County to demolish two structures located on four parcels of County owned property formerly known as the Liberty City Health Center to accomplish elimination of blight in the area.
