WHEREAS, MARC is leading the coordination of the grant submittal due July 12, 2010; and

 

WHEREAS, the Alternative Analysis study will build off of the Smart Moves Regional Transit Plan of major transit corridor studies; and

WHEREAS, the joint submittal will pursue a $2 Million grant; $1.4 Million for the commuter rail analysis and $600,000.00 to study the fixed guideway; and

 

WHEREAS, the potential grant will require a 20% local match with Jackson County providing $280,000.00 for the commuter rail analysis local match and Kansas City identifying $120,000.00 for the fixed guideway study local match; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:
