Authorizing execution of a Release and Termination of a Deferral Agreement for certain street improvements in the area of 38th and N.E. Parvin Road between the Northland Corps of the Salvation Army and the City of Kansas City, Missouri.


TRANSPORTATION & INFRASTRUCTURE COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, CONSENT"
Sherri McIntyre, Public Works, stated that this ordinance authorizes execution of a release and termination of a deferral agreement with the Salvation Army for possible street improvements along Parvin Rd. The Salvation Army was required to make a financial contribution for street improvements within one hundred eighty (180) days after the City sent notice that (1) the use of the Property had changed to a greater intensity generating additional traffic; and (2) the City had approved an ordinance amending the development plan, which plan amendment was required due to such change to a more intensive use of the property. Since the more intense use and resulting greater traffic did not occur, the City has agreed to release the Deferral Agreement. There was no public testimony given.

130417
Authorizing acceptance of a $724,000.00 grant from the Missouri Department of Transportation for the Bike KC Downtown Loop project; estimating and appropriating revenues in the Capital Improvements Fund; designating requisitioning authority; and recognizing an emergency.


TRANSPORTATION & INFRASTRUCTURE COMMITTEE recommends "HOLD ON AGENDA (6/13/2013)"
Sherri McIntyre, Public Works, stated this ordinance authorizes acceptance of a $724, 000.00 grant from the Missouri Department of Transportation for the Bike KC Downtown Loop project. Federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) Programs funds have been secured to establish a 12-mile downtown loop for bicycle facilities and establish key neighborhood connections to 18th & Vine, Crossroads, the Westside, West Bottoms, and a key link to both Wyandotte and Johnson County, Kansas residents. The federal funds require a local match of $181,000.00 which will be met through Council District 3 and Council District 4 PIAC funds. Councilman Jermaine Reed noted that there was a local match required and part of it will be coming from Districts 3 and 4. He asked about the match since he had no prior knowledge about the match from the Third District. Ms. McIntyre responded that her department will be working with the current PIAC processes to fund the split out based on the sections. It will be proportioned out into district funds to the distance in the districts. She didn't recall if the funds have already been secured or if they need to do it 2014 construction. Councilman Reed asked Ms. McIntyre to follow up in terms of the funding coming from the Third District PIAC. Ms. McIntyre explained that before submitting an application they typically talk to the Council District representatives and the PIAC representatives about funding these projects. They also ran these requests through ordinances before they made these submittals over to MARC requesting funding for each project. Councilman Russ Johnson commented that we don't apply for the federal funds unless we get the commitment from whatever district to support the project. Councilman Reed asked for documentation from staff. The information isn't readily available. The ordinance will be held for one week to obtain the documentation.

130434
Repealing the Committee Substitute for Ordinance No. 091067, Ordinance No. 100286, and Ordinance No. 100907 and amending Chapter 2, Code of Ordinances, by enacting a new Division 18 codifying the Parking and Transportation Commission and creating an advisory board to be known as the Parking Policy Review Board to make recommendations for addressing parking needs and enforcement within the City.


TRANSPORTATION & INFRASTRUCTURE COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Councilman Russ Johnson gave an introductory presentation on the ordinance. The Parking and Transportation Commission has been modified several times by ordinance. Rather than do another modification, it was decided that it should be amended into Chapter 2. This ordinance repeals the previous ordinances that created it and puts it in the Code of Ordinances. The new law is Section 2-970.21. Parking Policy Review Board. This came out of a couple years of stakeholder meetings and moving toward making parking policy more stakeholder sensitive and being able to deal with more situations on a case by case basis. What has emerged is the recommendation to adopt Section 2-970.21. Parking Policy Review Board which would create a 7 member body with 3 alternates. It will meet and deal with on-street parking policies that are within the boundaries of the Parking and Transportation Commission. The boundaries are the river, 31st Street, State Line and Woodland. Councilman Johnson gave an example of parking issues that made it necessary to create this board. Sherri McIntyre, Public Works, stated that Public Works defines the roadway, what areas are available for parking and what hours to park. This board will allow stakeholders listed to have input, i.e. whether there should be a meter or not, a tow away zone or not, etc. It will make its recommendations to the commission. The current modification adding a seventh member to the Board came from feedback from the Police Board who believed that there had to be a member who was no a regular downtown user. There was no public testimony given.
