The Parks and Recreation Department has a need for additional recreational field space. Given the City’s interest in revitalizing North Beach and North Beach Resident’s participation in soccer programs, recreational improvements would best service this area.
The City of Miami Beach and the School Board of Miami-Dade County jointly own a parcel of real property located adjacent to Biscayne Elementary School, for use of park and playground recreational purposes. Pursuant to the Joint Use Agreement between the City and the Board as referenced in Resolution No. 2001-24599 (Exhibit A), the City presently has the right to utilize Biscayne Elementary School’s playfield area, recreational facilities, and parking lot during after-school hours, when available.
Administration is recommending the City look into the viability of building a soccer field within the shared land, adjacent to the School.
At the time of this memo, staff is preparing cost estimates associated with the construction of a soccer field, including fencing and field upgrades.
