RESOLUTION NO. 130243

 

Authorizing the City Manager to execute a memorandum of understanding with North Kansas City regarding a northern expansion of the streetcar system.

 

WHEREAS, Kansas City is completing final design of a 2.1 mile streetcar starter line that will run generally along Main Street between Pershing Road on the south and the River Market on the north, with construction scheduled to begin in late 2013 and a scheduled completion date of summer 2015; and

 

WHEREAS, Kansas City is coordinating with the Mid-America Regional Council (“MARC”), Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (“KCATA”) and Jackson County, Missouri, (“Jackson County”) to contract with a qualified consulting team to develop a streetcar expansion strategy for the 2.1 mile starter line, and has issued its Request for Qualifications/Proposals for Design Professional Services, Project No. EV1750. The analysis will study and prioritize alternative extensions of the 2.1 mile starter line for areas located south of the Missouri River; and

 

WHEREAS, Kansas City and North Kansas City wish to work collaboratively, through MARC, in pursuing a streetcar expansion strategy that will provide for a further expansion across the Heart of America Bridge and continuing northward into North Kansas City; and

 

WHEREAS, North Kansas City has agreed to fund a certain portion of the costs of a streetcar expansion strategy intended to provide for such further expansion into its jurisdiction; NOW, THEREFORE;

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

That the City Manager is authorized to execute a memorandum of understanding between the City of Kansas City, Missouri and the City of North Kansas City, Missouri for the purpose of establishing the parties’ intentions with regard to studying and funding a northern streetcar expansion strategy. The memorandum of understanding is approved in substantial form as is on file in the office of the City Manager.
