County wetlands buy a washout


Written by on March 14, 2017

The Miami-Dade Infrastructure and Utilities committee on Tuesday unanimously deferred a measure that would authorize buying 10.56 acres of wetlands for $60,000.

Daniella Levine Cava’s resolution would accept “assignment of option to purchase” and authorize buying the land for the Cutler Wetlands project within the environmentally endangered lands program acquisition site with The Nature Conservancy as assignor, Miami-Dade as assignee and MHONE Corp. as seller using Building Better Communities General Obligation Bond program funds.

The measure would authorize use of the environmentally endangered lands acquisition trust for the purchase if general obligation bond funds aren’t available.
