Staff Summary: Background: On February 16, 2016, the Miami -Dade TPO (Transportation Planning Organization) Governing Board unanimously approved a policy to set as "highest priority" the advancement of rapid transit corridors and transit supportive projects for the county. Then, on April 21, 2016, the Miami -Dade TPO Governing Board officially adopted and endorsed the proposed Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit (SMART) Plan. North Corridor is one of the six SMART Plan corridors, and the TPO will be conducting an Implementation Plan along each of the six corridors with participation and collaboration of all municipalities along the project corridors. The County's support for this plan is the People's Transportation Plan (PTP) that is funded by the Citizens' Independent Transportation Trust. 1515 NW 167 Street, Building 5 Suite 200 Miami Gardens, Florida 33169 Analysis: The NW 27th Avenue Enhanced Bus Service (EBS) corridor extends 13 miles from the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC), located adjacent to Miami International Airport, north along NW 27th Avenue from State (SR) 112 (Airport Expressway) to NW 215th Street at the Broward County Line. At the southern end of the corridor, the MIC serves as an intermodal transportation terminal providing connectivity between Metrorail, Metro bus, Miami International Airport (MIA) via the MIA Mover, Tri -Rail (commuter rail), Amtrak (intercity rail), and Greyhound (intercity bus). Along the corridor, the EBS will connect the cities of Miami, Opa -Locka and Miami Gardens and major activity centers including the Miami -Dade College North Campus (MDC), North Dade Health Center, St. Thomas University, Florida Memorial College, Miami Jobs Corps Center, Hard Rock Stadium, and the Calder Race Course. At the northern end of the project corridor, a new transit terminal and park- and -ride facility will be constructed along NW 215th Street to serve as a transit terminal for the NW 27th Avenue EBS as well as local MDT Metro bus routes and Broward County Transit (BCT) routes. The long -term vision includes the addition of transit - oriented development (TOD) at the NW 215th Street transit terminal. Current Situation: This item is for the City to enter into a multi- agency partnership to advance efforts in connection with the Strategic Miami Area Rapid Transit (SMART) Plan which identifies the North Corridor as one of six rapid transit priority corridors, for the development of an implementation plan. Since this project was approved under the Miami -Dade People's Transportation Plan, the TPO is requesting that the City contribute $35,280 of its CITT funding, which is 4.2% of the initial cost, to fund the North Corridor Implementation Plan. Fiscal Impact: Miami Gardens CITT funds in the amount of $35,280 are available. Proposed Action: That the City Council approve the attached resolution authorizing the City Manager to execute an Interlocal Agreement with Miami -Dade Transportation Planning Organization and approve funding from the Citizens' Independent Transportation Trust Funds in the amount of $35,280 as the City Miami Gardens' contribution towards the North Corridor Implementation Plan.
