HISTORY: On May 24, 2016, the National Football League (NFL) awarded the Super Bowl LIV to South Florida. Unlike most Super Bowl, where all the
activities and organizers are centralized in one location, Super Bowl LIV will be and take a collective effort from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties and municipalities. The game will take place on Sunday, February 2, 2020 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, the Super Bowl Live event will be at Bayfront Park and a similar event on the beach in Broward, and the City of Miami Beach will be home to the NFL Experience.
The NFL Experience, which include the Media Center (5,000 media outlets are expected to provide coverage), the Radio Row, and the NFL Social Media
Command Center, is the largest event leading up to the Super Bowl and based on previous years, over 1.2 million visitors are expected to visit the site, located at the Miami Beach Convention Center between January 18 and February 6, 2020. In addition, the Super Bowl Host Committee has discussed potentially hosting the following events on the beachfront areas of Miami Beach: a media event, a VIP event, a potential event in the main Convention Center Park, and a free public beach concert. The City of Miami Beach is pending confirmation from the NFL for these special events.
ANALYSIS: The Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD) is leading the organization of law enforcement forces for the Super Bowl LIV. MDPD recently
released its organizational chart for this event (see attachment). That chart, which lists the different planning committees and teams, highlights the areas for which MDPD is responsible as well as the areas for which the Miami Beach Police Department (MBPD) will play a significant role. These include:
At this point, the MBPD has developed its own organizational chart, integrating the MDPD areas listed above (see attachment). Deputy Chief Clements
is the Event Commander, leading the MBPD Super Bowl team. Major Acosta is the Operations Commander, Major Guerrerro the Specialized Units Commander, and Major Jones the Support and Special Events Commander.
ANALYSIS: On September 6, 2018, the City mailed a petition form to residents on North Bay Road, between Alton Road and La Gorce Drive/Pine Tree Drive
Circle, in order to allow the subject residents to advise the City whether they are in favor of funding the undergrounding of utilities with special assessments. The deadline to mail back these petitions was set for October 8, 2018.
At the NCAC meeting on January 28, 2019, the Committee reviewed the final tabulation from the petition mailing. 60 of property owners submitted
petitions in favor of the district. The next step was to have the City Commission move forward in directing staff to seek a rough estimate from the utility companies. However, it is important to note that prior to getting binding estimates from utility companies, there would be fees associated for studies conducted by FPL to determine the probable cost of the project.
The City Clerk's office anticipated the voting would cost an approximate 16,000 to 18,000 and require an English and Spanish advertisement. Public
Works, in anticipation to this project, prepared a draft initial study area with anticipated project limits for the upper North Bay Road Neighborhood. The preliminary cost estimate from FPL is 3.1 million.
A motion was made by the NCAC Committee to proceed with the next steps for creating a district and obtaining the binding estimates for the utilities.
Public Works staff is currently in discussions with the neighborhood associations to determine the following steps required for the undergrounding of overhead utilities in the Upper La Gorce neighborhood:
1- Discuss project boundaries for the Upper La Gorce Neighborhood. 2- Prepare a map for the review and approval of project limits 3- Submit the
revised project limits map to FPL for a quote to perform the necessary design for the service and provide a non-binding cost estimate. 4- Report the cost and seek direction of who will be responsible for paying the fees.
As per your request, the non-binding ballpark estimate to complete this conversion is 3,100,000. This estimate is provided strictly to assist you in
preliminary decision making and it does not include the conversion of the existing streetlight system. It is not an offer from FPL to perform the requested conversion and should not be construed or used as such for detailed planning purposes. This represents an order of magnitude figure based on previous FPL experience and reflects the CIAC payment that the City would ultimately need to make to FPL if the conversion were performed at this point in time utilizing standard underground equipment. It is our experience that conversions in developed areas are the most complex and challenging types of construction. As such, this estimate likely will not precisely represent the Town s ultimate actual cost to convert, but can assist the City in preliminary decision-making.
Acquiring, describing, securing and recording of easements for underground facilities. In underground systems, major components formerly attached to
poles must now occupy at grade appurtenances, e.g., ground level pad mounted transformers and switch cabinets. Facilities of an underground distribution system will not be placed in road right-of-way, with the exception of cables required for crossings. (See special note below)
Note: Obtaining easements is typically the most difficult aspect of the conversion process; the time required to secure the easements may even exceed
the 180 day binding estimate timeframe. FPL strongly suggests that all easements required for the conversion be described and secured prior to requesting the detailed cost estimate. Further, in some instances, the underground distribution system may be placed within the road right-of-way with the proper agreement.
In 2007, the Public Service Commission approved FPL s 25 Governmental Adjustment Factor (G.A.F.) waiver for local government sponsored projects. In
order to be eligible for the G.A.F. waiver a project must meet a series of criteria (see Attachment). Based on the preliminary information you provided for the proposed conversion area, this request does qualify for the G.A.F. waiver. The ballpark estimate provided above does not include this G.A.F. waiver.
After reviewing the ballpark estimate, if you decide to move forward with the conversion project, you may request a detailed and binding estimate.
Due to the complexity and time required to estimate such a conversion, a non-refundable engineering deposit is required prior to beginning the estimating process, as set forth in the Florida Administrative Code 25-6.115. For this conversion project the amount of the required engineering deposit is 23,070.00. If you decide to proceed with the work contained in the estimate, the amount of this deposit would be applied toward the estimated amount owed to FPL for the conversion. The work must commence within 180 days of the date the binding estimate is provided.
The request for the binding estimate must be in writing, and must describe in detail the facilities to be converted. Binding estimates are valid for
180 days, and would be subject to change in the event of a work scope change. Should actual FPL costs exceed the binding estimate amount, the customer may be responsible for those additional costs up to a maximum of 10 of the binding estimate amount. Payment of customer costs, easements (with opinion of title and recorded), agreements from other utilities/pole licensees, and execution of a Conversion Agreement would be required before commencement of construction.
On July 18, 2018, at the Neighborhood/Community Affairs Committee (NCAC) meeting, sand sifting and the frequency at which it is performed was
discussed extensively. Alejandro Quintas, a representative of Neat Sand, advised the committee that in a meeting with city staff he proposed three recommendations regarding beach maintenance. The first is to stop offering government resources to do the sand sifting after special events. Neat Sand is listed as a vendor with the Special Event Department to handle sand sifting after each event which is required for beach event permits. Miami Beach and Miami Dade County offer the same services. Mr. Quintas represented that Neat Sand has proven that they can provide a very good service post event. The second recommendation was to have the city provide a location close to the beach for equipment storage to make the maintenance of the beach more effective. He informed the Committee that having the equipment far away makes it difficult to perform maintenance on the beach. The third recommendation was that the City request and enforce that every concession provide sand sifting on a regular basis by modifying/amending the rules and regulations on beachfront concessions to keep the area clean. He believed that by doing so, it would allow Miami Dade County to increase the sand sifting maintenance in other areas close to the shoreline.
a. All concession operations regardless of their locations on the beach are required to pick up litter and trash within their workable areas at the
beginning of their daily operations, throughout the day, and upon the conclusion of their operations. Only those concession operators in the public beachfront concession areas, those located where the upland property is city owned, are required to provide sifting within their operating areas. According to the Public Beachfront Concession Agreement, Section 10.1.1, this required sifting may be performed by either mechanical or manual means. All concessions located outside of the Public Beachfront are required to perform continuous litter collection but not sifting throughout their operating hours.
b. It is suggested and would be beneficial for the entire beach if all beachfront concessions were required to sift their workable areas throughout
the day using hand held tools such as rakes and nets. These have proven to be very effective in the collection of cigarette butts, bottle caps, eating utensils, and a variety of small bits of trash and litter.
To date we have evaluated current beach cleaning efforts along our beach and looked for potential opportunities for enhanced services, including
identifying opportunities and costs for retaining a private firm to assist with beach cleaning efforts and the strong possibility of enhanced services coming from Miami Dade County with the support of their County Commission.
Miami Dade County Beach Operations grooms, maintains, and cleans the 14.5 miles of beach, dune, and shoreline from Government Cut to Golden Beach.
The municipalities included in the operation are: City of Miami Beach, Surfside, Bal Harbour, Miami-Dade County-Haulover, Sunny Isles Beach, and Golden Beach. This unit operates bulldozers, tractors, Load-n-Pack trash collectors, beach sifters, small and large trucks, scooters and a variety of grounds maintenance tools to perform their duties.

but are not limited to, seaweed management, beach grooming, sand sifting, sand excavation, sand dune management, turtle nest monitoring and garbage removal. Beach Raker currently services 8 municipal contracts daily and 4 additional municipal contracts on an emergency basis. Our longest contract is nearly 40 years old. All 12 municipal clients have utilized Beach Raker extensively to combat the evasive Sargassum seaweed South Florida experienced in 2018. Beach Raker has never been replaced/terminated by any of their municipal clients. Beach Raker has over 250 additional commercial and residential accounts to include 100 of Sunny Isles, Golden Beach, Hillsboro Mile and the Galt Ocean Mile.
Manual trash collection takes place daily on Miami Beach, Surfside, Bal Harbour, Haulover Beach, Sunny Isles and Golden Beach. Mechanical trash
collection takes place daily on Miami Beach, Surfside, Haulover Beach, Haulover Park and Sunny Isles. Beach sifting is performed on all of the above mentioned sections of beach to remove stones, broken glass, bottle caps, cigarette butts, plastic eating utensils, straws, plastic cups and bottles. Beach Sifting is typically performed 5 days per week. Miami Beach and Surfside are scheduled to be sifted 8 to 12 times annually, while Bal Harbour, Haulover, and Sunny Isles are scheduled to be sifted 4 times annually. Sifting is performed on the more heavily populated and more frequently used sections of Miami Beach during holidays and special events totaling to over 40 services annually in a given section of beach.
