Directing the City Manager to cause specific projects to be submitted to the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) as applications for FY 2011 and 2012 Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) funds.


WHEREAS, MARC is soliciting project proposals for Federal Fiscal Years 2011 and 2012 CMAQ funds in its role as metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for Greater Kansas City; and


WHEREAS, eligible projects for CMAQ funds fall into one of six categories: transit projects; traffic flow projects; alternative fuel projects; bicycle/pedestrian projects; outreach/other projects; diesel retrofit/conventional fuel strategies; and


WHEREAS, eligible CMAQ projects must indicate how the project meets the following threshold criteria: reduce volatile organic compounds and/or nitrogen oxides; must not be used for routine program implementation, meeting any legal mandate, or completion of work that should have been completed under a prior grant or cooperative agreement; total cost of projects must exceed $50,000 for capital or operating projects and $25,000 for programs; proposals must include a detailed budget that identifies the source and amount of matching funds; all federal eligibility requirements must be met based on the October 2008 guidance document “The Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program”; and


WHEREAS, CMAQ projects will be evaluated using a set of four scoring criteria which include: emission reduction (35%), cost effectiveness (35%), vehicle miles traveled reduction (15%), land use/category specific (15%); and


WHEREAS, MARC anticipates the funding for Missouri to be $2.5 million for each year for a total of $5 million and anticipates allocating CMAQ funding among the six project categories according to the following target percentages: transit (34%), traffic flow (24%), alternative fuels (14%), bicycle/pedestrian (14%), outreach/other (9%), diesel retrofit/conventional fuel strategies (5%). Most CMAQ projects require a minimum 20 percent local match for federal funds; NOW, THEREFORE,
