HOLD THE LINECOALITION COMMENTSON PROPOSEDON SR-836 EXPANSIONPaul Schwiep, Esq.Richard Grosso, Esq.
MDX’s Proposed Project 14 miles southwest of the SR836 Overtop the NW wellfield On land purchased with Federal,State and local funds for CERP Outside UDB Destroys appx. 1,000 acres ofprotected wetlands and farmlands.
Inconsistent with Established LocalPolicies & Programs Internally Inconsistent with the CDMP Inconsistent with Climate Compact, 100 resilientCities, the Seven50 Plan, and with the countyGreenprint plan Invests transportation dollars, infrastructure, and cardrivers, and encourages new development there, atthe expense of infill & redevelopment, public transitand the SMART plan. Outdated approach contrary to 21st Century planning .
Project AreaCDMP constraints MAP“Shall be Avoided” CERP-Bird Drive Basin, PensucoWetlands Western Wellfield is bisected bynew alignments“Shall NOT be Considered” Active agricultural cultivation andthe protected Redlands Everglades Buffer Area
CDMP GoalA key purpose of the CDMP is:that the intensification of physical development andexpansion of the urban area should be managed tooccur . . 3) in locations which optimize efficiency in publicservice delivery and conservation of valuable naturalresources; and4) in recognition of the County’s physical limitations tohorizontal expansion due to the location of theEverglades National Parks, wetlands andenvironmental preserves, and the County’s uniqueagricultural land resources
“[U]rban infrastructure is discouraged outside the UDB.” LU-2B. Priority in the provision of services andfacilities and the allocation of financial resourcesfor services and facilities shall be given first toserve the area within the Urban Infill Area andTransportation Concurrency Exception Areas.
County staff report Page 8-1.11 The amendments “could impede theimplementation” of this policy.
CDMP Transportation ElementTE-1A. The County shall promote mass transitalternatives to the personal automobile, such as rapidtransit (i.e. heavy rail, light rail, and bus rapid transit,premium transit (enhanced and/or express bus)), localroute bus and paratransit services. The County staff report finds that the amendments “couldimpede the implementation” of this policy. Page 8-1.11
County Transp. Element TC-6A. The County shall avoid transportationimprovements which encourage or subsidize increaseddevelopment in coastal high hazard areas,environmentally sensitive areas and areas of high riskof significant inland flooding. TC-6B. Land access interchanges shall not be placed orconstructed in a manner that would provide access toenvironmental protection areas or other areas to beconserved in order to prevent undue pressure fordevelopment of such areas.

Major Data & Analysis GapsMDX PowerPoint presentation - Page 2 (Project Need):“Congestion causes approximately 3 – hour daily commutes inboth directions and a deteriorating quality of life for residents in WestKendall.”There is no data whatsoever submitted to support this claimanywhere within the amendment package.Page 12 includes a claim that, among the Project Benefits is:“Improves hurricane/ emergency evacuation routes and traveltimes.” There is no data whatsoever submitted to support this claimanywhere within the amendment package.

Conflicts with Bird Drive & North TrailBasins The Bird Drive Basin ispart of a CERP projectthat is not yet completed. Contain short-hydroperiodwetlands important forendangered species. Federal State and Localgovernment have beenacquiring lands in thisarea for a CERP projectfor 30 years.Bird Drive Basin Project Area

UEA Task Final Report at orts/uea-final-report.pdf)Bird Drive Recharge CERP project remains as a federally authorized project and is currently being reevaluated torecapture some of the anticipated project benefits.Bird Drive Recharge project remains important to MiamiDade County as a seepage management project to ensurethat restoration of water levels does not affect Countylandowners and to provide the County with water supply tonearby wellfields.
Objections Based on CERP ImpactsNov 2017 Dep’t of Interior Letter:Raised the issue that both corridors encroached into thewestern portion of the Bird Drive Basin needed for the plan.Since then, the corridor has continued to shift farther west.June 19, 2018 Everglades Foundation Letter:Objects because no demonstration the Parkway Won’tConflict w/ CERP
Summary Project Impacts Loss of Farmland Jeopardizes Water Supply Advances Suburban Sprawl Diverts funds from SMART Plan Destroys Wetlands Conflicts with CERP Potential take of Endangered Species Loss of flood attenuation and resiliency
Project Will Worsen Traffic MDX traffic study states LOS on existing 836 East of 137 Avewill degrade post build-out from C to D and trips increase from49,000 to 108,000. MDX traffic study states trips on Kendall west of turnpike willincrease post build-out Project will incentivize single vehicle commutes, which doesnot provide a viable long term solution to congestion, as aresult of two phenomena: Induced Demand Induced Development
Highways & Development New policy language inadequate and will beoverwhelmed by reality of the Parkway
Project is inconsistent with FederalPolicy Inconsistent with CERP Inconsistent with Section 404 of the Clean Water Act Requires a full EIS review under NEPA Requires more thorough review under theEndangered Species Act
Potential Alternatives Exist Implement SMART Plan corridors Improve existing public transit Expand the network of current and planned publictransit corridors Intra-Urban Development Boundary Corridor--connectto an existing road within the UDB Combination of the Above
The State Should Deny This ProposedAmendmentWe urge the South Florida RegionalPlanning Council to take into considerationthe many inconsistencies which this projectdisplays with the state and federal goals ofeverglades restoration and endangeredspecies protection, as well as theinconsistencies it displays with local policyand deny this proposed amendment.
The County shall promote mass transit alternatives to the personal automobile, such as rapid transit (i.e. heavy rail, light rail, and bus rapid transit, premium transit (enhanced and/or express bus)), local route bus and paratransit services.
