Referral to the Finance and Citywide Projects Committee - Discussion of Funding for the Pine Tree Drive and La Gorce Drive Traffic Calming Island Landscaping Enhancements.

Administration Recommendation: Refer the matter.

(Community/Economic Development)

ACTION: Separated by Commissioner Garcia for discussion. Commissioner Garcia stated that the City is looking for funding on a project that is almost completed and stated that the County backed out of some of the funding. Lawrence Levy, City Manager stated that the County funds the traffic calming measures, but not the landscaping.

Matthew Schwartz stated that the City has again requested the County fund the landscaping. In the interim the City has identified about $300,000 of Quality-of-Life money from Mid-Beach that the Administration would like to apply to this project. It is estimated that the project will cost $ 475,000.

Commissioner Liebman stated that the County's position is that Road Impact Fees can't be used for landscaping. Mayor Kasdin is placing this issue on the MPO's next agenda to change the way Road Impact Fees are being used. This funds usage needs to be expanded.

Commissioner Liebman also stated that the City needs to look closely at how unfair the Road Impact Fees are being attached to the City of Miami Beach. Miami Beach is not responsible for impacting the roads in Miami-Dade County.

Commissioner Liebman is bringing a resolution to the City Commission requesting the County to re-evaluate how Road Impact Fees are being levied and how Miami Beach compares to the development in the Western part of the County.

Motion made by Commissioner Smith to ask the County to fund the landscaping improvements and to keep the project going by using quality-of-life funds, if necessary, and ask the County to reimburse the City. If the County refuses, to seek legal remedies. Commissioner Dermer requested an amendment to the motion requesting Commissioner Smith take the lead on this item; seconded by Commissioner Cruz/Liebman; Voice Vote: 7-0. Matthew Schwartz.

Where is the money going and will some of the money be used for the summer initiative?
