On April 14, 2017, the Town of Surfside reached out to the City of Miami Beach in regards to Miami Dade County’s (the “County”) regional hybrid skate park/ pump track initiative. The County has received a proposal (Exhibit A) from Velosolutions, a company that designs and constructs the infrastructure for pump tracks, to design, engineer and construct a hybrid skate park in Haulover Park.
Since receiving the proposal, the County has engaged its districts for financial support to back the initiative. At the time of this memo, the City of Sunny Isles Beach and the Town of Surfside plans to contribute $150,000 and $50,000, respectively, towards this initiative. Bal Harbour and Bay Harbor Islands have also been engaged.
On April 26, 2017, Commission moved this item as a dual referral to both the Finance and Citywide Projects Committee (FCWPC) and the Neighborhood and Community Affairs Committee (NCAC).
At the May 19, 2017 NCAC and FCWPC meetings, the Committees approved the City’s contribution towards the Regional Hybrid Skatepark/Pumptrack initiative at Haulover in conjunction with Sunny Isles Beach, Town of Surfside, and possibly Bal Harbour and Bay Harbor Islands, with FCWPC’s direction to not have the contribution exceed $50,000.00.
