Delegation of Authority
Authorizes the County Mayor or the Mayor’s designee to convey the property to the City of Miami at no cost, take all actions necessary to accomplish the conveyance of the property, and authorizes the Chairwoman or Vice Chair of the Board to execute a County Deed for such purpose.
The County received a formal request from the City of Miami for the conveyance of a 25 foot wide by 70 foot long strip of land located along the frontage of the Fifth Street Metromover Station for the purposes of widening SE 5 Street. Currently, the road right-of-way along this portion of SE 5 Street is only 25 feet in width, which is inadequate for the traffic capacity in the Brickell area. The planned improvements consist of roadway widening, the addition of sidewalks, and other roadway beautification enhancements. This project is part of the Miami River Greenway Initiative and will be constructed by the City of Miami at no cost to the County.
Florida Statute, Section 125.38, authorizes the Board to convey property to the City, a municipal corporation of the State of Florida, when the Board is satisfied that the property is not needed for County purposes and will be utilized for the benefit of the public or community interest and welfare. The Internal Services Department circulated this property to all County departments to determine whether the County has a present or future need for the property, in which none was determined.
The County Deed contains a restriction that states that the property is to be used for public and transportation purposes and other specific purposes and when, and if, the public use shall be discontinued, the title to the land described in Exhibit “A,” shall immediately revert to the County, its successors and assigns, and it shall have the right to immediately repossess the same. The County will also retain an easement in the County Deed for the right to operate and maintain the Metromover Guideway System that is located over and above the property. Attached is a letter from the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Transit Administration approving the conveyance.
Additional property details are as follows, and shown in the attached property sketch:
