COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR ORDINANCE NO. 140182

Directing the City Manager to cause specific projects to be submitted to the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) as applications for FY 2017 & 2018 Surface Transportation Program (STP), FY 2015-2018 Congestion Mitigation/Air Quality Program (CMAQ) and FY 2014-2018 Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) funding

WHEREAS, MARC, in its role as metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for Greater Kansas City, is soliciting project proposals for Federal Fiscal Years 2014-2018 for three Federal Highway Administration funding programs (STP, CMAQ & TAP); and

WHEREAS, each of the three programs is eligible to fund a wide but specific range of surface transportation projects. Eligible project types for this call for projects will include, but are not limited to: Active transportation including bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure; alternative fuel and diesel retrofit strategies to improve regional air quality; public transportation equipment, facilities, technology and new services; outreach strategies to improve regional air quality; roadway and bridge capacity, management, operations, preservation and traffic flow; transportation safety; and

WHEREAS, eligibility for STP is also related to the Federal Roadway Function Classification system. STP funds can be used within the Kansas City MPO boundary on all facilities functionally classified as urban collector or higher; and

WHEREAS, Transportation Outlook 2040, the region’s long-range transportation plan adopted in 2010, supports this regional vision by envisioning and setting goals for a safe, balanced, regional multimodal transportation system that is coordinated with land-use planning, supports equitable access to opportunities, and protects the environment. Project proposals submitted for consideration will be evaluated based on how closely they align with the policy goals of the plan; and

 WHEREAS, in 2014, MARC adopted a Programming Policy Statement that further supports the vision of the MARC Board of Directors and is designed to aid the region as it makes progress in implementing the goals identified in Transportation Outlook 2040 and other regional policies. Project proposals will be evaluated for adherence with these policies; and

WHEREAS, these funding years are beyond the term of current federal transportation legislation and some uncertainty remains surrounding the level of funding available for programming, MARC has utilized recent historical funding levels and anticipates the following funding targets for the Missouri side of the region: 2015-2018 CMAQ at $9.1M, 2017 & 2018 STP at $53M and 2014-2018 TAP at $11M; and

WHEREAS, all of these programs are reimbursement programs. Each program is limited to a maximum of 80% federal share and requires a local match of at least 20% for any federal funds awarded to any project; and

WHEREAS, MARC will collect a non-refundable fee equivalent to 0.5% of any federal funds awarded to projects through this programming cycle and sponsors of projects awarded funding will be invoiced for this fee in early 2015; NOW, THEREFORE,
