On July 17, 2019, via Resolution No. 2019-30892, the City Commission accepted the Finding of Necessity, in order for the City to request that the County delegate authority to create a Community Redevelopment Agency. On October 31, 2019, the City of Miami Beach presented the Finding of Necessity to the Miami-Dade County Tax Increment Financing ("TIF") Committee, which accepted the declaration of necessity contained in the Finding of Necessity, and made a motion to recommend that the City consider extending the boundary to include the Crespi and North Shore areas to provide for economic opportunities for these residential areas. City staff revised the Finding of Necessity to include the areas recommended by the County TIF Committee. However, after a series of community meetings and resident feedback in opposition to an expanded boundary, the City decided to move forward with the original boundaries as delineated in Resolution No. 2019-30892.

On July 8, 2020, the Board of County Commissioners of Miami-Dade County Florida (the “BCC”), adopted Resolution No. R-619-20, whereby the County: (1) accepted the City’s Finding of Necessity to declare a need to create the North Beach CRA and (2) delegated to the City the statutory authority to create the North Beach CRA and to prepare and adopt a community redevelopment plan for the North Beach Redevelopment Area.

Pursuant to the County’s delegation of authority, the City undertook a significant public engagement effort to prepare the Redevelopment Plan. Simultaneous with the City’s preparation of the Redevelopment Plan, in order to delineate their respective areas of responsibility with respect to the redevelopment of the Redevelopment Area, the City, North Beach CRA, and County Administrations negotiated an interlocal cooperation agreement (the “Interlocal Agreement”).

On February 10, 2021, by adopting Resolution No. 2021-31596, the Mayor and City Commission officially created the North Beach CRA pursuant to section 163.357, Florida Statutes, and declared the Mayor and City Commission to be the governing body of the North Beach CRA.

On May 12, 2021, pursuant to Resolution No. 003-2021, the Chairperson and Members of the North Beach CRA Board adopted the Redevelopment Plan and transmitted the Plan to the City Commission for approval, as required by Section 163.360(5), Florida Statutes. Additionally, pursuant to Resolution No. 004-2021, the Chairperson and Board members approved the Interlocal Agreement, authorized the Chairperson and Secretary to execute the Interlocal Agreement, and further, authorized the transmittal of the executed Interlocal Agreement to the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners for its consideration and approval.

Likewise, on May 12, 2021, pursuant to Resolution No. 2021-31709, the Mayor and City Commission approved the Redevelopment Plan for the North Beach CRA and authorized its transmittal to the County. Contemporaneously, pursuant to Resolution No. 2021-31710, the Mayor and City Commission approved the Interlocal Agreement, authorized the Mayor and City Clerk to execute the Interlocal Agreement, and further, authorized the City Manager to transmit the executed Interlocal Agreement to the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners for its consideration and approval.

On July 20, 2021, the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners approved Ordinance No. 21-70 establishing the North Beach CRA Trust Fund and Resolution No. R-696-21 approving the Redevelopment Plan and the final, negotiated Interlocal Agreement, as amended.

On July 28, 2021, the North Beach CRA Board adopted Resolution No. 005-2021 accepting the Interlocal Agreement. The City Commission also approved the Interlocal Agreement via Resolution No. 2021-31817.
