From: Carlos A. Gimenez
Subject: Resolution Authorizing the Conveyance of Six Vacant Parcels to the Florida City
Community Redevelopment Agency
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (Board) approve the attached resolution to do the following:
1. Convey six (6) vacant land parcels (Properties) located in Florida City to the Florida City Community Redevelopment Agency (Agency) for the purpose of redevelopment of the properties as affordable housing for low and moderate income families, subject to the County’s reverter;
2. Waive the requirements of Administrative Order 8-4 as it relates to review by the Planning Advisory Board;
3. Authorize the execution of County deeds by the Board’s Chairperson for such purposes; and
4. Authorize the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee to take all action necessary to enforce the provisions of the County Deed.
The conveyance of the vacant land complies with Section 125.38 of the Florida Statutes which permits the disposition of County property to the United States, departments of the United States, state or political subdivision, agency, or municipality, or not-for-profit corporation organized for the purposes of promoting community interest and welfare without using the competitive bidding process.
The Properties are currently owned by the County and maintained by Public Housing and Community Development (Department) and are located in Commission District 9, represented by Miami-Dade County Commissioner Dennis C. Moss. Attachment A provides the folios of the Properties.
Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
The Properties are currently undeveloped and the County is responsible for its maintenance. It is in the County’s best interest to convey the Properties to the Agency to: 1) assist the Agency and Florida City in developing the Properties in a manner that will promote the public or community welfare, which includes the development of much needed affordable housing; 2) reduce the property maintenance expenses currently assumed by the County; and 3) address the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (Housing and Urban Development) concerns regarding land banking The total funds spent as of October 7, 2013 for the acquisition and maintenance of the properties is approximately $149,202.00 (Attachment A). The conveyance of the Properties to the Agency for the purpose of redevelopment into affordable housing is ten dollars ($10.00) for each executed deed.
A County Deed will be issued for the conveyance of the parcels to the Agency in substantially the form attached in Attachment B. Freddie Nay, Housing Asset Management Specialist with the Department’s Contract Administration Division, will manage the conveyance of these properties with the assistance of the Internal Services Department’s Real Estate Section.
Resolution No. R-376-11, approved by the Board on May 3, 2011, requires that any resolution authorizing the improvement, rehabilitation or conveyance of County-owned real property appropriate for or to be used for affordable housing include the following information:
Background: The County acquired the Properties with Community Development Block Grant Funds in 1998 with the intent to utilize the land for affordable housing. The Properties have remained vacant. The Agency sent a letter December 16, 2013, which is attached hereto as Attachment C, expressing interest in acquiring the Properties for the purpose of redeveloping them as affordable housing for low and moderate income families. The conveyance of the Properties, which are within the target corridors of the Agency’s Redevelopment Plan, will allow the Agency to enhance the target corridor and place the Properties back on the tax roll.
County Investment: Acquisition cost totaled $88,042.00 and as of October 7, 2013, the County has expended $61,160.00 for maintenance. The Properties are tax deed free and clear of liens and taxes.
Property Info: The Properties are all located in Commission District 9. The folio numbers, addresses, acquisition costs, annual maintenance, and assessed value are included on Attachments A and B.
Restrictions: The Properties will be conveyed subject to the following restrictions:
* The Agency has assured the County that it will use the Properties in a manner that will promote the public or community welfare, thus complying with the conditions required for the sale of County-owned property as set forth in Florida Statue Section 125.38.
* The affordable housing developed on the Properties shall be sold to a qualified low to moderate income family within five (5) years of conveyance of the Properties.
* The County Deed includes covenants running with the land regarding Project Improvements and completion of the Agency’s obligations.
