Call to Order The meeting of the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) was called to order at 10:00 A.M. at Riverside County Transportation Commission, 4080 Lemon Street, Riverside, CA. 2. Self -Introductions Members Present: Others Present: Dave Barakian, City of Palm Springs Bill Bayne, City of Cathedral City Tom Boyd, City of Riverside Greg Butler, City of Temecula Kip Field; City of Corona Mark Greenwood, City of Palm Desert Bruce Harry, City of Rancho Mirage Tim Jonasson, City of La Quinta Victor Monz, City of Hemet William Mosby, Ca!trans District 8 Kahono Oei, City of Banning Juan Perez, County of Riverside Tom Rafferty, City of Indio Ken Seumalo, City of Lake Elsinore Paul Toor, City of Coachella John Wilder, .City of Beaumont Fred Alamolhoda, LAE Assoc.

Approval of Minutes The April 21, 2008 minutes were approved as submitted. 4 Public Comments There were no public comments. 5. 2008 STIP - CTC STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS Stephanie Wiggins, RCTC, provided a 2008 STIP - Riverside County Proposed Programming document and stated that the California Transportation Commission had to push out a billion dollars statewide on the STIP. The strikeouts on the spreadsheet reflect the dollar amounts that were pushed out into the out years. The rnovement was based on the schedules provided by the lead agencies. The only project that was moved that RCTC did not recommend was the East Junction project. Alternative plans will be reviewed to keep the. East Junction project on schedule. She stated that the projects that are not lined out are not affected. 6. REPROGRAMMING OF TRANSPORTATION ENHANCEMENT PROJECTS Ms. Wiggins stated that the TE situation is becoming uncertain, especially due to delays of some projects. She further stated that it may become necessary to resort to a first come, first served basis over the next few years because of the issue of schedules and the amount of. TE capacity available for each fiscal year that is already fixed. It will be necessary for staff to work closely with TE project sponsors to get a clear knowledge of the schedules. For FY 2008/09 based upon original schedules, there are a number of projects that will require $3.7 million of TE funding. Ms. Wiggins pointed out that there are three projects that were programmed in FY 2007/08 that were not ready for their allocation, totaling $2 million for a combined total of $5.8 million with only $3.8 million available for 2008/09. • Technical Advisory Committee Meeting May 19, 2008 Page 3 In response to the question as to how the funding would be disbursed, Stephanie said that once staff has confirmed with the TAC the status on projects, the TAC would be asked for recommendations on how to proceed — either first come, first served or if the five that are "on schedule" get priority over the three that are behind schedule. She further reminded the TAC that we do not want to be in a position to -let funding lapse. She reminded the committee that the cities of Hemet, Calimesa and Norco should contact Shirley Medina regarding the status of projects that were carried over from TEA 21. 7. FY 2007/08 DELIVERY OF CMAQ AND RSTP FUNDS Grace Alvarez, RCTC, stated that she updated the STPL and CMAQ Obligation delivery plan based on the responses received from the local agencies with the exception of the cities of Norco and Calimesa. She provided spreadsheets of the projected obligations and requested that the agencies continue to update staff on any project delays. She further stated that the STPL lump sum projects were increased by 10%, which is reflected in the spreadsheet. 8. STATE AND FEDERAL LEGISLATIVE UPDATE Aaron Hake, RCTC, provided a list of legislation that the Commission has acted on as well as bills that are being monitored to take to the Commission in June 2008. Proposition 42 gas sales tax funds have been protected in the proposed state budget; therefore, the 10% across the board cuts will not affect us. There is a loss of "spillover funding," that is, transit revenue that rises when gasoline prices rise. It appears that our highway projects will be untouched, assuming that the Governor's proposal is enacted. He stated that in February the Commission authorized the creation of an Ad Hoc committee, comprised of RCTC Commissioners, to review federal reauthorization with the transportation bill expiring next year. That committee is developing a platform and has requested a staff level legislative meeting, which is expected to convene within the next month. Letters will be mailed to city managers inviting one member of each staff to participate in helping to develop the reauthorization platform. Technical Advisory Committee Meeting May 19, 2008 Page 4 9. LOCAL ASSISTANCE REPORT Bill Mosby, Caltrans District 8, indicated that they received a low response to the recent Local Assistance survey that Caltrans distributed to Riverside County and San Bernardino County local agencies. There were 12 responses between the 2 counties. He said that meetings to determine how to improve Local Assistance service will be held with Patrick. Nally; DLAE, John Pagano, Engineering, Nate Pickett, Senior Environmental Planner, and staff from RCTC. 10. 2006 RTIP STATUS & 2008 RTP/2008 RTIP UPDATE For the 2006 RTIP Status, Grace Alvarez reported receiving approvals to the amendments submitted with the exception of Amendment No. 17 that was submitted the end of April. Amendment No. 15 was approved May 6 and the approved listing will be posted on the SCAG website. Some of the projects that were requested to be included in Amendment No. 17 were not accepted by SCAG due to the fact that they wanted to have only urgency projects in this amendment. For the 2008 RTP, the Regional Council of Southern California Association of Governments adopted the 2008 RTP. The final approval, which is a conformity determination by the federal agencies, is expected in June. Regarding the 2008 RTIP, we have 4 major approvals to complete the 2008 RTIP. June 5 is the SCAG Transportation and Communications Committee approval and release of the draft 2008 RTIP; In July, SCAG will finalize the approval and on. August 1, SCAG will submit the 2008 RTIP to Caltrans for review; about October -November 2008 federal approval is expected. 11. COMMISSION CONNECTION/COMMISSION HIGHLIGHTS Eliza Echevarria, RCTC, requested that agencies contact her if any changes need to be made in the Commission Connection distribution list. She also reminded the committee that RCTC is available for presentations about the agency or regarding any projects that it has. - • Technical Advisory Committee Meeting May 19, 2008 Page 5 12. OTHER BUSINESS Paul Blackwelder, ROTC, reminded the western county members of the Regional TUMF projects meeting on Thursday, May 22, 2008, and the topics include: • Status of the projects • Cash flow needs for the next three fiscal years • Funding: Regional and zone money • Scheduling the next meeting for finalizing evaluation of the Measure A regional projects Juan Perez, Riverside County, stated that Ca!trans will be issuing new policies from headquarters regarding utilities. Stephanie Wiggins introduced RCTC's new employee, Andrea Zureick. Juan Perez announced that Stephanie Wiggins is leaving RCTC to join SANBAG. He also announced that Riverside County is recruiting for his former position, Director of Transportation, and he invited telephone calls from anyone who is interested. 13. ADJOURNMENT There being no further business for consideration by the Technical Advisory Committee, the meeting adjourned at approximately 10:35 A.M. The next meeting is scheduled for June 16, 2008, 10:00 A.M., Banning City Hall Civic Center, Large Conference Room, 99 East Ramsey Street, Banning, CA Respectfully submitted, Shirley Medin Program Manager • AGENDA ITEM 5 • • RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: June 16, 2008 TO: Technical Advisory Committee FROM: Shirley Medina, Program Manager SUBJECT: 2008 STIP Adoption STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Receive and file. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: On June 26, 2008, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) adopted the 2008 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) per the CTC staff recommendation that was released on May 9, 2008. As reported at last month's meeting, the CTC staff recommendations were consistent with RCTC's February 19, 2008 submittal with the exception of the following: • 60/215 East Junction • Transportation Enhancement programming The construction funding for the 60/215 East Junction project consists of STIP Regional Improvement Program (RIP) funds and Interregional Improvement Program (IIP) funds. These funds were moved from fiscal year 2009/10 to 2011/12. Staff testified at the CTC that the project will be ready for construction in fiscal year 2009/10 and should there be any funds available, we request the project be kept in the 2009/10 fiscal year. Staff will continue to work with Ca[trans and CTC on the possibility of maintaining the project programming through the upcoming STIP technical amendment. As for the Transportation Enhancement (TE) funds, the funding levels are limited and we will be required to prepare a TE allocation plan. The TAC Subcommittee will convene prior to the June 19 TAC meeting to develop the plan, which will be presented in the following item. Staff will continue to work with project sponsors on developing the schedules for allocating and obligating their respective TE projects.

M • AGENDA ITEM 7 • • RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: June16, 2008 TO: Technical Advisory Committee FROM: Shirley Medina, Program Manager SUBJECT: Hemet Transportation Enhancement Request (TE) Project Re-scoping STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Staff recommends approval of Hemet's reprogramming request. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: The city of Hemet has submitted the attached letter requesting to change the project scope of its TE funded State Street Multi -Use Bicycle and Pedestrian Path project. This project was originally approved for funding in 2000. The project was delayed due to the State Street Improvement project, which included road widening and drainage improvements. This improvement project has been completed and the city has reviewed the feasibility of constructing the original TE project. The original TE project involved a 1.6 mile multi -use path. The city concluded that this project could not be built for the amount of funds currently available. Therefore, the project has been re-scoped to a 1,200-foot multi -use path with much of the same features as the original project. The city also proposes to maintain the local match at 35% of the total project cost as identified in the original application. Given that the city could not start the TE project due to delays caused by the State Street Improvement project, and that the city has downsized the project to fit the amount of available TE funding staff recommends approval of the revised project scope. However, since the TE funding capacity is limited over the next few years we recommend that the project is programmed when funding capacity is available, which will be in fiscal year 2010/2011 or 2011 /12. It has been discussed at the Regional Transportation Planning Agencies (RTPA) meetings that TE projects are experiencing delays due to the federal NEPA process. We recommend that this project and all other unobligated TE projects begin the NEPA process as soon as possible so that they can meet their construction schedules. Attachment: City of Hemet's Letter of Request • • May15, 2008 TO: Committee FROM: RE: City of7femet PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT • ENGINEERING DIVISION. 510 E. Florida Ave. • Hemet, CA 92543 • (951) 765-3880 • FAX (951) 765-3898 . Riverside County Transportation Commission Technical Advisory Mike Gow, City of Hemet Director of Public Works / City Engineer STATE STREET MULTI -USE BICYCLE & PEDESTRIAN PATH REQUEST FOR CHANGE OF PROJECT SCOPE The City of Hemet requests a change in the scope of the State Street Multi -use Bicycle and Pedestrian Path, a TEA -funded project originally selected for funding in 2000. Original Project Description &Scope: Construction of a 1.6 miles multi -use path consisting of a Class 1 bike facility, a pedestrian path, an adjacent equestrian trail, rest areas with benches and drinking fountains, and pathway lighting for evening use. The project will be generally constructed along the west side of State Street between Chambers Road and Domenigoni Parkway. All necessary right-of-way has been pledged for the project. Revised Project Description &Scope: Construction of 1,200-foot long multi -use path consisting of 1) an eight -foot wide combination sidewalk/bike path; 2) an adjacent six-foot wide equestrian trail; 3) a terminus rest area with benches; and 4) solar —powered trail lights to allow evening use. The project will be: construction along the west side of State Street from Chambers Road south for approximately 1,200 feet. The City owns all of the necessary right-of-way for this project. Reasons for Change in Scope This project was postponed for a number of years as the result of multiple delays in the adjacent State Street Improvement project, which involved road widening and drainage improvements. The street project is now complete. RE: STATE STREET MULTI -USE BICYCLE & PEDESTRIAN PATH Page 2 REQUEST FOR CHANGE OF PROJECT SCOPE Unfortunately, the funding awarded eight years ago is no longer adequate to construct the project as described in the original application. As a result, the project scope has been reduced based on the amount of funding available and the amount of work this funding will cover at 2008 prices. In addition, the proposed change in project scope eliminates the need to acquire additional right-of-way. As a result, $98,000 allocated for site acquisition will be utilized for construction costs. The effect of these changes on the original project costs and local match percentages are summarized in the tables below.

(See attached site map and drawings.) Ultimate completion of the remaining portion of the original 1.6-mile trail is anticipated to take place as the area develops. The City plans to condition the property owner (currently Metropolitan Water District) to complete the trail in order to fulfill the original objectives of the project to provide an alternative transportation mode linking to the Diamond Valley recreation area and to create a show case example for environmental enhancement of a major regional transportation facility (State Street).

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: The TE projects recommended for funding in fiscal year 2008/09 (previous item) are required to submit the following for allocating and obligating the TE funds concurrently: 1. Allocation Request to California Transportation Commission (CTC); and 2. Request for Authorization (RFA) to Caltrans Local Assistance to obligate the funds. Previously our guidance to local agencies was to submit the Allocation Request and RFA sequentially. However, Caltrans and the CTC have emphasized the need to submit these documents concurrently in order to assure that the project sponsors meet the 6-month allocation to award deadline. If project sponsors do not meet this deadline, TE funds will be rescinded. Therefore, it is imperative that project sponsors submit the allocation request and RFA concurrently to meet the contract award deadline. The TE projects must have all pre -construction activities complete prior to the request for allocation from the CTC. This includes documentation of federal environmental clearance (NEPA), right-of-way certification, and plans and specifications ready for advertisement. It is Caltrans' goal to have the obligation request ready to submit to FHWA soon after the CTC allocation so that federal authorization can be received in a timely manner. Local agencies are required to submit the Allocation Request and RFA to RCTC for concurrence_ RCTC will then submit the entire package (Allocation Request and RFA) to Local Assistance and determine the appropriate timeframe to receive the allocation approval from the CTC_ As a guideline, local agencies should allow for a 30-day timeframe for Caltrans Local Assistance to review the Allocation Request and RFA for completeness and accuracy. The CTC generally meets every month. RCTC staff will be working: closely with each local agency to develop a schedule for submittal of the Allocation Request and RFA to identify the followings 1) Submittal of Allocation Request to RCTC and RFA to Caltrans 2) CTC meeting approval date 3) Award deadline 4) Actual award date As a reminder, projects that are not ready to request the allocation in the year they are programmed will lapse funding. Lapsed funds will return to the county share (RCTC TE pot), but won't be available until the last year of the STIP cycle.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: With the federal fourth quarter delivery cycle upon us, it is imperative that we receive the most accurate information regarding project schedules on a frequent basis. The most critical piece of information is when Requests for Authorizations (RFAs) will be submitted to Caltrans Local Assistance. This will assist us in determining how much federal funding will be obligated/delivered each federal fiscal year. Should there be a balance of funds at the end of the year, RCTC needs to make decisions on how to spend down the balance by programming the funds on other projects, loaning funds to other regions, or preparing extension requests. Annually, each region or county has a target amount of federal funds that need to be obligated (also referred to as OA). On June 1st of each year, Caltrans' OA policy allows regions that have obligated their target to continue obligating funds above and beyond their target. This allows agencies to deliver projects during years of high delivery by obligating other regions' funds that have a low delivery during that year. In addition, the policy encourages agencies to deliver projects earlier in the year so that there isn't a high volume of obligations occurring during the 4th quarter, which has been the case for several years. If California as a whole obligates 100% of the state's OA, there is an opportunity to receive funds from other states that have lovv delivery. This is also referred to as "August Redistribution." Therefore, it is imperative for agencies to delivery early and report accurate information regarding obligation submittals, so that Caltrans can demonstrate to the FHWA that the state has projects that can take advantage of AugustRedistribution. Staff recently contacted the local agencies that reported at the beginning of the federal fiscal year that their project would be ready to obligate by the end of the year. The attached spreadsheet identifies the projects planned for obligation from May to September 30, 2008. However, in August FHWA typically stops receiving RFA packages so that they can focus on reviewing and approving RFAs by the end of the federal fiscal year. We learned that some of the obligations planned for this year will not occur, and these projects will be reprogrammed for next year. Therefore, we will be reviewing ongoing RCTC projects to program and obligate any remaining OA balances for this year. As reported previously, staff is working with a consultant to develop a Project Milestone Report that can be accessed online. We are `finalizing the development of this tool and intend to have this "Online Project Milestone Report completed in the fall. This will help us retrieve up-to-date information ,regarding project schedules, and give us the ability to provide OA delivery plan updates to Caltrans on a quarterly basis. • AGENDA ITEM 11 RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMM/SS/ON DATE: June 16, 2008 TO: Technical Advisory Committee FROM: Grace Alvarez, Staff Analyst SUBJECT: 2006 RTIP - Amendment No. 19 STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Receive and File.. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: On June 13, 2008, RCTC submitted to SCAG the 2006 RTIP - Amendment No. 19 (formal amendment). Amendment No. 19 included the following projects: Local Highways: RIV52001 RIV990727 RIV071278 RIV071271 RIV071272 RIV071280 RIV080601 Cities & County Palm Springs Riverside County Riverside Riverside Riverside San Jacinto STPL - Lump Sum Pavement Rehabilitation Projects Indian Canyon Dr. Bridge Widening/Replacement Magnolia Ave. Grade Separation Streeter Avenue Grade Separation Riverside Avenue Grade Separation Mary Street Grade Separation Estudillo Mansion Heritage Park - Landscaping State Highways: RIV071279 Riverside County SR86/SR195 (66' Ave.) - New I/C (PA&ED) Transit: RIV011211 RCTC RIV080602 RTA RIV080603 RTA R1V080604 RTA • Corona North Main Parking Structure Purchase of eight Type VII, 26-passenger mid -size Vehicles for new transit service (Route 212 & 214) Purchase six 40-ft CNG Replacement buses Purchase nineteen 40-ft. CNG expansion buses to Implement Express or BRT Service in Western Riverside County • The criteria for including projects in Amendment No 19, most likely the last formal amendment to the 2006 RTIP, is funding changes that need to be completed for obligation of funds prior to the adoption of the 2008 RTIP, as well as new projects that need to get started on the PA&ED phase. Approval of Amendment No. 19 is anticipated around the end of July 2008. AGENDA ITEM 12 RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: June 11, 2008 TO: FROM: `THROUGH: SUBJECT: Riverside County Transportation CommiSs on Shirley Medina, Program Manager Anne Mayer, Executive Director . Measure A Designation of Highway 111.Segments STAFF RECOMMENDATION. This item is for the Commission to: 1) 2) Approve an amendment to the Measure A Transportation Expenditure Plan/Transportation.Improvement Plan (TIP) to add the following segments on Highway 1.11: a) In Palm Springs, from the intersection of Ramon Road and Gene Autry Trail, north on Gene Autry Trail to Vista Chino Drive, thence west on Vista Chino Drive to North. Palm Canyon Drive, thence northerly on the. existing Highway 11.1 alignment to Interstate 10- In Indio, from the crossing of Golf Center Parkway over Indio_ Boulevard, northerly on. Golf Center Parkway to Interstate 10; and c) In Indio, from the intersection of Highway 111 and Indio Boulevard, southeasterly on Indio Boulevard and Grapefruit Boulevard, the existing and former Highway 111 alignment, through the city of Coachella and Riverside County to the intersection of State Route 195 (Avenue 66). Process the amendment to the, TIP for inclusion of the Highway 1.11 new segments as outlined in Section 240302 of the Public Utilities Code. b) BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Changes to the alignment of Highway 111 in the Coachella Valley have raised questions in regards to eligibility of segments that have been relinquished by the state to local agencies, as well as the eligibility of the new alignment for Measure A funds, CVAG is also requesting an amendment to .the Measure A TIP to include additional segments of Highway 111 that were not included in the original alignment depicted in Measure A. Agenda Item 8E Designation of Highway 111 for Coachella Valley Measure A Highway Furies ` Under the 1989 Measure. -A, the _ Transportation : Expenditure:. Plan, also referred to ea the TIP, included a. provision that 15% of the Measure A. funds would be allocated to Highway 111 improvement projects. The TIP identifies. highway 111 from Ramon Road to Indio Boulevard. Since the passage of Measure A, the designation of Highway 111 has been changed as portions of the original:alignitteiat have been relinquished by the state and are new maintained by local jurisdictions; In addition, Highway 111 was :realigned in the city of. Palm. Springs and new. is located on Vista Chino Drive between Indian Canyon Drive to. Gene Autry Trail, as well as the segment of Gene Autry Trail from Vista ,Chino .Drive to South Palm Canyon Drive. CVAG requested a legal opinion in Attachment 2 regarding the possibility of using Measure A funds on portions of the original alignment that are no longer part of the Highway 111 system, and if Measure A funds can be expended on the new alignment not identified in the original alignment. Commission staff also requested a legal opinion in Attachment 3 regarding the ability to add segments not identified in the original alignment. The legal opinion indicated that a reasonable .argument cart be made that .supports the expenditure of funds on portions that have been relinquished by the state. The legal opinion also states`tha a reasonable argument can be made that supports the expenditure of Measure A funds on the new alignment. The legal opinion further concludes the following: "In either case, it is within the authority of the Commission to interpret its ordinance. As explained .further below, the Commission's interpretation must be consistent with the voter's intent. As either' interpretation described is reasonable, we believe that the Commission may select either interpretation as evidencing the intent of the voters. The Commission may consult with CVAG in determining the most reasonable interpretation of the voter's intent. Our office recommends that the Commission make its findings on the record, at a public meeting of the Commission. CVAG has submitteda letter in Attachment 4 requesting the Commission. to process an amendment to the TIP adding the following segments to Highway 111: a) In Palm Springs, from the intersection of Ramon Road and Gene Autry Trail, north on Gene Autry Trail to Vista Chino Drive, thence west on Vista Chino Drive to North -Palm Canyon Drive, thence northerly on the existing Highway 111 alignment to Interstate 10; Agenda Item 8E IP b) In Indio, from the crossing of Golf Center Parkway over Indio Boulevard, northerly on Golf Center Parkway to Interstate 10; and c) In Indio, from the intersection of Highway 111 and Indio Boulevard, southeasterly on Indio Boulevard. and Grapefruit. Boulevard, the existing and former Highway 111 alignment, through the City of Coachella and Riverside County to the intersection of State Route 1.95 (Avenue 66). Staff supports CVAG's recommendation to designate Highway 111 as described above. The process to amend the TIP is described in the legal opinion, which would require that the Commission make a "findings of necessity" and be followed by an approval by the board of supervisors, and a majority of the cities constituting a majority of the incorporated population. The amendment would have to be separately acted on by: 1) the Commission at its meeting; 2) the Board of Supervisors at its meeting; and 3) a majority of the cities, at their respective city council meetings.
