Directing the City Manager to cause specific projects to be submitted to the Mid-America Regional Council as applications for FY 2010 and 2011 Transportation Enhancement Program.


WHEREAS, Mid-America Regional Council (“MARC”) is soliciting project proposals for Federal Fiscal Years 2010 and 2011 Transportation Enhancement (“TE”) Program funds in its role as metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for Greater Kansas City; and

WHEREAS, MARC anticipates awarding a total of approximately $5.8 million in Missouri TE funding for the combined Federal Fiscal Years 2010 and 2011. Since the 2011 funding year is beyond the current extent of existing federal transportation legislation, the estimated amounts and available uses for these funds may be subject to change; and

WHEREAS, MARC has indicated that in order to make the most progress toward our regional and transportation visions, the broad policy goals identified in Transportation Outlook 2040 will serve as a guide for regional transportation investments during this call for projects. Project proposals submitted for consideration will be evaluated based on how closely they align with the policy goals of the plan; and

WHEREAS, MARC has indicated that TE projects must be in one of the 12 eligible activity categories and have a direct relationship to surface transportation. These categories include, but are not limited to, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, landscaping and scenic beautification, historic preservation, bicycle/pedestrian safety and educational activities, and mitigation of water pollution due to roadway runoff; and


WHEREAS, MARC has indicated in order to demonstrate greater financial commitment by project applicants and to maximize the distribution of these funds for project implementation activities, TE funds may not be used for design or preliminary engineering activities, utility adjustments or rightofway acquisition. Funding requests for construction projects should be between $50,000.00 and $500,000.00. For nonconstruction projects, funding requests should be between $10,000.00 and $100,000.00. A local match of 25 % is required for these federal funds; and

WHEREAS, MARC has indicated that applicants with multiple projects cannot apply for more than 105% of the total available funds in the funding round. For FFY 2010–2011, this 105% limit is a total of $6,090,000. Federal funding requests cannot include funding to support preliminary engineering and design work. The project will be open for public access for at least 25 years or the expected life of the project. The applicant must demonstrate adequate plans for and commit to ongoing maintenance costs for this duration. TE funds cannot pay for regular maintenance activities; NOW, THEREFORE,
