A RESOLUTION OF THE MAYOR AND CITY COMMISSION OF THE CITY OF MIAMI
BEACH, FLORIDA, APPROVING AND AUTHORIZING THE MAYOR AND CITY
CLERK TO EXECUTE A NON-EXCLUSIVE UTILITY EASEMENT, IN THE FORM
ATTACHED TO THIS RESOLUTION AS EXHIBIT "1," IN FAVOR OF FLORIDA
POWER AND LIGHT (FPL), OF APPROXIMATELY 9,831 SQUARE FEET; SAID
EASEMENT LYING WITHIN A PORTION OF SECTION 34, TOWNSHIP 53 SOUTH,
RANGE 42 EAST, OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FOR THE INSTALLATION OF AN
ELECTRICAL DUCT BANK AND ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT, IN ORDER TO SERVE
THE NEW PARK WHICH WILL BE DEVELOPED BETWEEN CONVENTION CENTER
DRIVE AND MERIDIAN AVENUE, AND BETWEEN 18 STREET AND 19 STREET.
|On January 16, 2019, the City entered into a Construction Contract with Critical Path Services, Inc., to construct the Convention Center Park project. The work includes the construction of an urban park to replace the existing surface parking lot located west of Convention Center Drive.
In order to provide electrical service to the new park, Florida Power and Light (FPL) will require an easement in the total amount of 9,831 square feet for the installation and maintenance of a 9 conduit duct bank located on the City’s property. The FPL duct bank will service the park from an existing FPL manhole located within the public right-of-way of 19th Street, and will run parallel to Convention Center Drive, connecting to the park’s electrical service panels on 18th street.
FPL requires the execution of a non-exclusive easement to install the portion of the duct bank within the property limits and place its electrical service equipment within the park. The easement grants FPL access to install, service and maintain the duct bank and equipment located on the City’s property. The declaration of easement and survey describing the limits of the easement to be recorded per FPL requirements are included herein as Exhibit 1.
FPL, the Office of Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) and the park designer’s staff have expended time and resources assessing the site conditions and have determined this to be the most suitable route for the FPL duct bank and appurtenances required to provide electrical service to the Park.
|The Administration recommends that the Mayor and City Commission adopt the Resolution.|
