SECOND COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR ORDINANCE NO. 120493

Directing the City Manager to cause specific projects to be submitted to the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) as applications for FY 2015 and 2016 Surface Transportation Program (STP) and Bridge Replacement and Rehabilitation (Bridge) funds.

WHEREAS, MARC is soliciting project proposals for Federal Fiscal Years 2015 and 2016 STP and Bridge funds in its role as metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for Greater Kansas City; and

WHEREAS, eligible projects for STP funds include, but are not limited to: bicycle/pedestrian, livable communities’ pilot projects; public transportation projects; bridge replacement and rehabilitation projects; roadway capacity projects; transportation operations and management projects; transportation safety projects; and

WHEREAS, eligible Bridge projects include, but are not limited to: construction of high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane structures on a public bridge; culverts of minimum size that constitute a public bridge; reconstruction, replacement, rehabilitation, repair and restoration of deficient highway bridges; and

WHEREAS, eligibility for STP and Bridge funds 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. In Missouri, Bridge funds may be used on any public road not classified as local or rural minor collectors on the Federal Functional Classification network; and

WHEREAS, in an effort to make the most progress toward our regional and transportation visions, MARC has determined that the broad policy goals identified in Transportation Outlook 2040 should serve as guide for all project submittals, thus, projects submitted will be evaluated and scored on how closely they align with the policy goals of the plan. Those policy goals include: accessibility; climate change and energy use; economic vitality; environment; place making; public health; safety and security; system condition; system performance; and

WHEREAS, funding for FY 2015 and 2016 years are beyond the term of current transportation legislation, some uncertainty remains about the level of funding available for programming by MARC, thus, after looking at recent levels of funding from previous years MARC anticipates the funding for Missouri to be $16 million for each year for a total of $32 million; and


WHEREAS, in an effort to demonstrate greater financial commitment by project applicants and to maximize the distribution of these funds for project implementation, STP and Bridge funds may not be used for design or preliminary engineering activities. Both STP and Bridge programs are reimbursement programs and require a 20 percent local match for federal funds; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:
