A RESOLUTION OF THE MAYOR AND CITY COMMISSION OF THE CITY OF
MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA, AUTHORIZING THE PURCHASE OF UTILITY
RELOCATION SERVICES FROM FLORIDA POWER AND LIGHT (FPL), AS A
SOLE SOURCE PURCHASE PURSUANT TO SECTION 2.367(D) OF THE
MIAMI BEACH CITY CODE, FOR THE RELOCATION OF OVERHEAD
TRANSMISSION LINES AND ASSOCIATED POWER POLES AT THE
EXISTING CITY OWNED PARKING LOT (P92), ALLOWING FOR MORE
DESIGN FLEXIBILITY AND EFFICIENCY AT THE FUTURE 72ND STREET
COMMUNITY COMPLEX, LOCATED BETWEEN 72 STREET AND 73
STREET, AND BETWEEN COLLINS AVENUE AND HARDING AVENUE, IN
THE AMOUNT OF $849,765.13, WITH PREVIOUSLY APPROPRIATED
FUNDING, AND AUTHORIZING THE CITY MANAGER AND CITY ATTORNEY
TO FINALIZE THE FACILITIES RELOCATION AGREEMENT, AND FURTHER
AUTHORIZING THE CITY MANAGER AND CITY CLERK TO EXECUTE THE
FACILITIES RELOCATION AGREEMENT WITH FPL.
|On July 31, 2019 The City Commission directed city staff to proceed with the completion of the feasibility study and commenced the preparation of the Design Criteria Package (DCP) for the 72nd Street Community Complex project planned to be constructed at the existing city owned parking lot (P92), located between 72 Street and 73 Street, and between Collins Avenue and Harding Avenue. To that end, City staff and the design criteria professional have met with project stakeholders to discuss and refine project requirements. |
Existing overhead FPL transmission lines currently bi-sect the site of the future 72nd Street Community Complex (Attachment A). These lines are supported by utility poles located within the existing parking lot, and cross 72 and 73 street.
During the development of the DCP, the consultant evaluated the option of relocating the transmission lines and determined that this would provide the eventual design-builder with more design flexibility in the siting of the structures and increased efficiency of design. This in turn will allow the design-build firms greater design creativity, and the opportunity to develop unique solutions which may more cohesively address the project site. Subsequent to meetings with FPL and their preparation of a non-binding cost estimate, the City Commission, on October 16, 2019, approved Resolution 2019-31048 authoring the sole source purchase for the preparation of a detailed Design and Binding estimate, by FPL, for the relocation of the overhead transmission lines and associated power poles in the amount of $154,180.00.
|City staff has met with FPL on several occasions, including during the exploratory (soft dig) site investigation work, and has had multiple conversations regarding the proposed transmission power pole location and routing of the overhead power lines. It was determined that the overhead transmission lines and associated power poles will be rerouted, generally along the property line, in a westerly direction from its current location along 72nd Street then north on Harding Avenue to 73rd Street, then east along 73rd Street and tying into the existing lines in the alleyway on the north side of 73rd Street. |
FPL has completed their due diligence, engineering and design, and has provided the Facilities Relocation Agreement (FRA) (Attachment B). The FRA provides a detailed cost proposal for the relocation of the overhead transmission lines and associated power poles in the amount of $849,765.13.
FPL requires the execution of the agreement and payment by July 1, 2020, prior to commencing the work. The work is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year.
