Hopefully I can resolve some of these issues.
The following claim stuck out to me:
The Conceptual Agreement hypothetically depicts the mutually agreeable conditions which the Committee decided upon after discussions with County staff, and two public hearings.
I want to know more about this. Did any of you attend any of these discussions? Feel free to tell me about them, whether the hosts provided any documentation, and especially if you remember any claims made by any of the attendant parties. (Lots of the local back and forth revolves around promises people make about what will or will not happen under incorporation.)
|This agreement makes the minimum service with MDCPD 4 years actually, because even if after 3 years the new city decides to go with its own PD they have to give the County a transition period fo no lass than 12 months|
|Suddenly start beginning some paragraphs with this,|
The county got most of the NEMAC to agree to capitulate important roads which connect different parts of the propose city, but different parts of our sector of the county also! Most egregious perhaps the retention of Ives Dairy Road and Highland Lakes Boulevard, hotbeds of traffic congestion.
As a counterpoint, I recall that the county currently retains control of everything, so regardless of these concessions the resolution still represents significant devolution.
|$71M and $55M each|
|As I can tell this is the only mention in the whole discussion about making sure the new city gets a fair deal on anything, but it only applies to Fire, Library, Solid Waste, and Police.|
|I wonder what the numbers looked like in 2005 compared to 2016|
|PAB given NEMAC report by BCC to conduct hearing and provide recommendation.|
|I wonder how this second meeting compared to that held over a decade prior.|
As someone attracted to the concept of more local control it seems a slap in the face that the county would ignore this recommendation.
|This map highlights the portion of the new city over which county would maintain control.|

Initial ConclusionAt this point we have gone through the entirety of Miami-Dade Board of County Commission Resolution R-576-18, however this does not incorporate all information the county saw. To make a decision on whether I support this or not I have to look at the rest of the packet Commissioners saw that day.
