WHEREAS, St. John Community Development Corporation (“St. John”), a not-for profit which promotes, develops and provides safe and affordable housing to persons with limited financial resources in Miami-Dade County, initially requested that Habitat for Humanity convey the Property to them because the Property sits in the middle of a multi-family affordable housing project St. John plans to construct; and

WHEREAS, the Board finds that, pursuant to Section 125.38 of the Florida Statutes, that the Property is not needed for County purposes as it has been declared surplus, and that the conveyance of the Property to St. John would be required for the intended use of promoting community interest and welfare; and
WHEREAS, this Board finds pursuant to Section 125.38, Florida Statutes, that the conveyance of the Property to St. John serves the best interest of the County; and 
WHEREAS, the Property would be conveyed pursuant to a reverter requiring the completion of the construction of the affordable housing project for low-income and moderate-income persons within three (3) years of the effective date of the conveyance to ensure compliance with the intent of this Board,
