Proposed Annexation Area

Miami-Dade County is proposing new rules that may block the City of Miami Springs and the Village of Virginia Gardens’ nearly 20 year old attempts at annexation.

Proposed Annexation Area

The major hurdle being proposed is requiring consent from owners of sixty (60) percent of the total property within the annexation area.  Furthermore, the new rules would apply to new annexation applications and pending applications.  As you know, the Miami Springs and Virginia Gardens Annexation Applications are still pending.

Here’s the proposed ordinance in front of the Miami-Dade County Commission in today’s meeting:

ORDINANCE RELATING TO PROCEDURES FOR MUNICIPAL BOUNDARY CHANGES, ANNEXATION AND INCORPORATION; AMENDING SECTIONS 20-3, 20-4, 20-6, 20-7, 20-22, AND 20-29 OF THE CODE OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA; CREATING SECTION 20-4.2 OF THE CODE OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY; REQUIRING THAT MAILED NOTICES FOR PUBLIC HEARINGS ALSO BE SENT TO REGISTERED VOTERS AND PROPERTIES LISTED BY THE PROPERTY APPRAISER’S OFFICE IN ADDITION TO PROPERTY OWNERS; REQUIRING WRITTEN CONSENT OF A CERTAIN PERCENTAGE OF PROPERTY OWNERS AS PART OF A MUNICIPAL BOUNDARY CHANGE APPLICATION, UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES; REQUIRING A SURVEY OF PROPERTY OWNERS FOR PROPOSED MUNICIPAL BOUNDARY CHANGES; PROVIDING FOR PROCEDURES AND APPLICABILITY; REQUIRING TWO-THIRDS VOTE OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES; REQUIRING DISCLOSURE OF SURVEY RESULTS TO THE PLANNING ADVISORY BOARD AND THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS; PROVIDING SEVERABILITY, INCLUSION IN THE CODE, AND AN EFFECTIVE DATE

WHEREAS, in Miami-Dade County, annexations, also referred to as municipal boundary changes, are governed exclusively by the Miami-Dade County Home Rule Charter and chapter 20 of the Code of Miami-Dade County (the ‚ÄúCode‚ÄĚ); and

WHEREAS, the County’s process for considering proposed annexations involves multiple public hearings and mailed notices to property owners within the proposed annexation area and within 600 feet thereof; and

WHEREAS, this ordinance would generally provide for additional mailed notices and additional procedures and requirements related to the pre-application consent and survey results of property owners within a proposed annexation area; and

WHEREAS, although chapter 20 of the Code requires mailed notice for certain public hearings on annexation and incorporation matters, such mailed notices are only sent to property owners within the area of the proposed boundary change or incorporation and within 600 feet thereof; and

WHEREAS, incorporations of new municipalities, as well as some annexations of unincorporated areas into existing municipalities, cannot be accomplished unless a majority of resident electors voting in such election approve the respective incorporation or annexation; and

WHEREAS, for any such election, the resident electors‚ÄĒand only resident electors‚ÄĒwould be able to vote; and

WHEREAS, nevertheless, if resident electors in the area do not own property, they will currently not receive mailed notice of the public hearings on annexation or incorporation proposals, which take place before the Board decides whether to advance such annexation or incorporation proposals to an election; and

WHEREAS, this Board wishes to require that such mailed notices be sent to registered voters in addition to property owners; and

WHEREAS, in addition, this Board wishes to require that such mailed notices be sent to properties listed by the Property Appraiser’s Office; and

WHEREAS, this Board, however, does not wish to expand the physical areas to which mailed notice would be provided, which is currently within the area of a proposed boundary change or incorporation and within 600 feet thereof; and

WHEREAS, in addition, although County staff has been sending mailed notices to property owners in advance of public hearings before the Planning Advisory Board for incorporation proposals, the Code currently does not require such notices for incorporation proposals at the Planning Advisory Board stage; and

WHEREAS, as such, this Board also desires to amend the Code to require such mailed notices for incorporation proposals for public hearings before the Planning Advisory Board, which is consistent with the current staff practice for such hearings; and

WHEREAS, property owners may attend the public hearings and express their opinions as to any proposed annexation, and property owners may also lobby their elected officials outside of the public hearing, but commercial property owners who are not resident electors cannot vote in an election; and

WHEREAS, in addition, in some cases, no election would be required under the Code because the proposed annexation area is exclusively commercial or industrial with no resident electors; and

WHEREAS, annexations may have a profound impact on the services available to property owners and the rate of ad valorem taxation paid by property owners, and this Board wishes to provide property owners with a greater opportunity to express their opinion as to proposed annexations; and

WHEREAS, this Board wishes to require, as part of an application for proposed annexations, that municipalities or other applicants provide signed consents from the property owners of at least 60 percent of the property in the proposed annexation area; and

WHEREAS, although Florida statutes on annexation procedures are not applicable in Miami-Dade County, it is noteworthy that there are similar requirements in section 171.0413(5)-(6), Florida Statutes, which provide that, under certain circumstances, an area may not be annexed ‚Äúunless the owners of more than 50 percent of the land in such area consent to such annexation;‚ÄĚ and

WHEREAS, in addition, this Board wishes to require that a survey be provided to all property owners in the proposed annexation area, and the results of such survey would be required to be provided to the Planning Advisory Board and the Board of County Commissioners; and

WHEREAS, in addition, if the owners of less than 60 percent of the property in the annexation area indicate that they are in favor of the proposed annexation, certain information would be required as part of any future resolutions or ordinances related to said annexation, pursuant to section 20-7 and 20-8 of the Code, and a super majority vote of this Board would be required at certain stages of the annexation process; and

WHEREAS, the procedures and requirements related to such surveys would apply to new applications for municipal boundary changes and, under certain circumstances, to pending applications for municipal boundary changes; and

WHEREAS, the procedures and requirements related to such surveys would only apply to pending applications for municipal boundary changes if, after the effective date of this ordinance, such pending applications are heard at public hearing pursuant to either section 20-6 of the Code, which is the public hearing before the Planning Advisory Board, or 20-7 of the Code, which is the public hearing before this Board on a resolution to direct the County Attorney to prepare the appropriate ordinance to effectuate an annexation; and

WHEREAS, this Board wishes to create these new procedures and requirements to provide more notice of the public hearings on proposed municipal boundary changes and to provide for greater input from property owners and consideration of such input by this Board,

(A) A Municipal Advisory Committee may only be created by ordinance of the Board in accordance with the provisions of this section to study and give advice to the County Commission regarding the creation of a proposed municipality. However, as of the effective date of this ordinance, no Municipal Advisory Committee shall be created by the County Commission, unless no less than twenty (20) percent of the resident electors in the area to be studied consent to the creation of a Municipal Advisory Committee on a consent form which shall be approved by the Office of Management and Budget. The signed consent forms shall be submitted to the Clerk of the Board of County Commissioners.

No ordinance to create a Municipal Advisory Committee may be placed on an agenda of this Board unless the Clerk of the Board has forwarded to the County Commission the signed consent forms of area residents and the certification of the sufficiency of the consent forms, as required in this subsection. Following public hearing, the County Commission may create a Municipal Advisory Committee by ordinance. It is provided, however, that where a Municipal Advisory Committee has been established, prior to the effective date of this ordinance, no consent of resident electors shall be required for the adoption of an ordinance creating a Municipal Advisory Committee involving the same study area. Upon receipt of the Municipal Advisory Committee report, which shall include findings of fiscal feasibility, evidence of desirability, and a plan for the development of a viable community, and upon motion of the district commissioner whose district comprises the majority of the proposed area to be incorporated, the Board of County Commissioners, at a regular meeting of the Board, may schedule the Municipal Advisory Committee report and resolution for consideration by the Planning Advisory Board. (B) In the event a Municipal Advisory Committee is created where part of the study area is outside the sponsoring Commissioner’s district, such area shall automatically be excluded from the Municipal Area Committee’s consideration.

(C) The restriction set forth in Paragraph (B) may be waived by the Commissioner(s) whose district the study area comes within by filing a memorandum with the Clerk of the Board indicating consent to all or part of the study area.

(E) Notices of any public hearings held by a municipal advisory committee >>shall be furnished to (a) all registered voters within the area of such proposed boundary change and within six hundred (600) feet thereof, (b) all property addresses, as listed by the Property Appraiser’s Office, within the area of such proposed boundary change and within six hundred (600) feet thereof, and (c) all property owners within the area of such proposed boundary change and within six hundred (600) feet thereof, and<< shall include a summary of the municipal advisory committee’s pro forma budget for the proposed municipality, as well as a summary of the budget review report submitted by the consultant retained to advise the municipal advisory committee, pursuant to County Resolution No. R-130-05 (Consultant).

Notwithstanding the preceding provisions, this ordinance does not require a municipal advisory committee to hold any additional public hearings beyond the two public hearings required by ordinances of the Board of County Commissioners. The Municipal Advisory Committee shall complete the required feasibility and desirability study within twenty-four (24) months of its initial creation. If the Municipal Advisory Committee does not meet the required deadline, the Municipal Advisory Committee shall automatically sunset. Any Municipal Advisory Committee in existence as of the effective date of this Section shall include as part of its report a study of the feasibility and desirability of incorporating and shall be required to complete its study and submit the required report within twenty-four (24) months of the adoption of this section. If a Municipal Advisory Committee in existence as of the effective date of this Section does not meet this required deadline it shall automatically sunset. It is provided however, in the event that the Board of County Commissioners adopts an ordinance which suspends the processing of incorporation requests, the calculation of the twenty-four (24) month period of time provided by this section shall be tolled during the pendency of such suspension.

(F) Any public hearing held by the Board of County Commissioners to consider a proposed incorporation of an unincorporated area shall require[[d]] that prior to such hearing the Office of Strategic Business Management provide the Board an updated Impact to the Unincorporated Municipal Service Area Analysis.

Section 8. If any section, subsection, sentence, clause or provision of this ordinance is held invalid, the remainder of this ordinance shall not be affected by such invalidity.

Section 9. It is the intention of the Board of County Commissioners, and it is hereby¬†ordained that the provisions of this ordinance, including any sunset provision, shall become and¬†be made a part of the Code of Miami-Dade County, Florida. The sections of this ordinance may¬†be renumbered or relettered to accomplish such intention, and the word ‚Äúordinance‚ÄĚ may be¬†changed to ‚Äúsection,‚ÄĚ ‚Äúarticle,‚ÄĚ or other appropriate word.

Section 10. This ordinance shall become effective ten (10) days after the date of enactment unless vetoed by the Mayor, and if vetoed, shall become effective only upon an override by this Board.
