TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE MAYOR OR MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO CREATE PROGRAMMING ON MIAMI-DADE TV TO EDUCATE THE PUBLIC ABOUT SEA LEVEL RISE AND THE COUNTY’S SEA LEVEL RISE RELATED WORK

BODY
WHEREAS, Miami-Dade County, like the rest of South Florida, is understood to be particularly vulnerable to sea level rise due to the County’s low elevation and proximity to the coast, as well as the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events; and
WHEREAS, Miami-Dade County has demonstrated leadership on issues related to sea level rise through the creation of the Miami-Dade County Sea Level Rise Task Force and the County’s Office of Resilience; and
WHEREAS, in 2013, this Board adopted Resolution No. R-599-13 creating the Miami-Dade County Sea Level Rise Task Force; and
WHEREAS, subsequently in 2014, the Miami-Dade County Sea Level Rise Task Force presented its recommendations, and the final reports on those recommendations were presented to this Board in October 2016; and
WHEREAS, those final reports cumulatively contain over 400 pages of information and analysis related to sea level rise, and this information may be of interest to residents and businesses in Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, in addition, the County is continuing to pursue various initiatives related to sea level rise, sustainability and resilience, including the development of a Countywide Greater Miami and the Beaches Resilience Strategy; and
WHEREAS, Miami-Dade TV is the County’s government access television station, and it is carried by all cable TV systems in Miami-Dade County and provides public information programming, along with televised County meetings; and
WHEREAS, the County could provide an additional public service by making this information on sea level rise, sustainability and resilience available and accessible through Miami-Dade TV and other communication channels, as appropriate; and
WHEREAS, this use of Miami-Dade TV may allow the County to reach a larger audience, to promote education and information about the issues of sea level rise, sustainability and resilience, and this use of Miami-Dade TV may also better inform County residents about the work that the County is undertaking in order to address these important issues,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board hereby directs the Mayor or Mayor’s designee to create programming for Miami-Dade TV and other communication channels, as appropriate, in consultation with the County’s Office of Resilience as to the content of such programming, in order to educate the public about sea level rise, issues related to sustainability and resilience, the recommendations of the Miami-Dade County Sea Level Rise Task Force, and the County’s efforts to implement those recommendations and address sea level rise, sustainability and resilience issues.
