Abstain: Commissioners Hall, Chlebnik and Zeller 5. PUBLIC HEARING ON THE REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM FISCAL YEAR 2000/01 - 2005/06 Charles Keynejad, Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG1, provided the Committee with an overview of the 2000 Regional Transportation Improvement Program. In order to implement the Transportation Improvement Program, a Regional Transportation Improvement Program is needed, and in order for this to be implemented, SCAG has prepared Plans and Programs Committee Minutes August 28, 2000 Page 3 Commissioner Bob Buster stated that the 60/91 /215 project could be considered the most important project in Riverside County, and at this point appears to be in jeopardy. In all probability other projects of far less importance could supersede this project based solely on the type of politics currently taking place at the state level. He suggested the Commission send a strong message to the State- that Riverside County does not want this State money from the Governor under these circumstances. Chairperson. Robin Lowe asked the Executive Director's opinion regarding the repercussions should the Committee decline to take action today, as the Commission has been asked to make a decision based on information that does not include the final figures. Eric Haley recommended the Committee move forward on the item with exception of delaying action on items 1 and 2. M/S/C (Wilson/Hall) recommend that the Commission: delay taking action on the following items for one month: 1) Reserve the STIP Discretionary funds for the purposes of addressing potential funding decisions; and 2) Program $26.49 million in 2000 STIP Augmentation funding available in the Western County to the 60/91/215 Corridor Projects to assist in the funding shortfall. Approve the following items: 3) Amend the Ramon Road STIP Project to identify the project cost as $20.0 million; 4) Program the STIP formula funds available in the Coachella Valley as outlined by CVAG and detailed in the agenda item; 5) Reserve the STIP formula funds available in the Palo Verde Valley for projects to be recommended by the City of Blythe and the County of Riverside; and 6) Initiate project application for those TCRP projects for which we are identified as lead and to include all Riverside County TCRP projects in the Regional Transportation Improvement Program. Nays: Kelly, Kleindienst, Ruppert and Zeller 7. MEASURE A STRATEGIC PLAN COMPLETION — WESTERN COUNTY HIGHWAY/RAIL Eric Haley, Executive Director reminded the Committee that at the June 2000 meeting, a decision was made regarding rail expenditures. Until 2009, the Commission had the option of spending up to $67 million on Western County Rail. This item concerns years 2008 and 2009 where there will be an unallocated amount of $28.4 million for non -rail projects, which was not part of the action taken June 2000. It is requested that the strategic planning process be closed with that understanding. The Metrolink rail services are Western County projects and as such the money would derive in the years 2008 and 2009 to Western County projects. Commissioner Buster raised a question concerning the use of such funds for the 60/91 /215 Corridor projects. Eric Haley responded that it would be 2008 and 2009 money and is essentially available too far in the future to be of any real assistance. In addition, it would require altering project timetables and shifting money in order to utilize the funds on the 60/91 /215 Corridor. M/S/C (Bourbonnais/Buster) recommend Commission approve the possible use of $28.4 million in Western County Measure "A" funds currently identified as available in the Strategic Plan for named Measure "A" Highway Projects and/or unidentified Commuter Rail projects.

FY 97/98, 98/99 AND 99/00 RCTC PERFORMANCE AUDIT M/S/C (Wilson/Kelly) recommend the Commission: 1) Release a Request for Proposal to conduct a performance audit of the Riverside County Transportation Commission's activities and the seven public transit operators providing services in Riverside County; 2) Direct the RCTC Chairman to appoint an Ad Hoc Sub Committee to select the consultant to conduct the audits; and 3) Amend the FY 01 Budget to cover the cost of the performance audit 14. AWARD OF CONTRACT FOR INSTALLATION OF CALTRANS TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT CENTER SITES AND SMART CALL BOXES M/S/C (Kleindienst/Wilson) recommend the Commission award a contract pending legal counsel review to the following contractors: Peek Traffic — Signal Maintenance, Inc. for the installation of Ca!trans Traffic Management Center (TMC) Sites; and, Comarco Wireless Technologies for the installation of Smart Call Boxes along the Congestion Management Program System. 15. CONSULTANT AGREEMENT WITH GLADSTEIN & ASSOCIATES IN SUPPORT OF THE INTERSTATE CLEAN TRANSPORTATION CORRIDOR PROJECT. M/S/C (Kleindienst/Wilson) recommend the Commission: 1) Enter into a consultant agreement with Gladstein & Associates to implement the FY-00.01 Interstate Clean Transportation Corridor (ICTC) scope of work; 2) Authorize the Chairman, pursuant to Legal Counsel review, to execute the agreement on behalf of the Commission; and 3) Approve the allocation of $25,000 from Transportation Development Act (TDA) funds for the work effort. 16. FOUR CORNERS TRANSPORTATION STUDY FINAL REPORT M/S/C (Kleindienst/Kelly) recommend the Commission: 1) Receive and file the Four Corners Transportation Study Final Report; and 2) Direct staff, upon conclusion of the CETAP process, to review the Four Corners Implementation Strategies and identify any actions that may be dppropriate for consideration by the Commission. 17. CALACT CONFERENCE M/S/C (Wilson/Kelly) recommend the Commission: 1) Co -host the California Association for Coordinated Transportation (CaIACT) Spring 2001 conference; and 2) Provide up to $1,200 in Measure "A" funds to cover the cost of sponsoring a workshop. AGENDA ITEM 5 RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: September 25, 2000 TO: Plans and Programs Committee FROM: Shirley Medina, Program Manager THROUGH: Cathy Bechtel, Director of Planning- and'Programming SUBJECT: 2001 Regional Transportation Plan Update STAFF RECOMMEND.A TION: This item is to seek Committee approval to receive a report on the 2001 Regional Transportation Plan Update and to forward to the Commission for final action. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: The 2001 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) is currently being developed by the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG). The RTP is a long range transportation plan covering the years 2001 through 2025. It is required to be in conformance with the State Implementation Plan (SIP) in accordance to EPA's Transportation Conformity Rule. Adoption of the 2001 RTP is scheduled for April, 2001. The lapse date for the current RTP is June 30, 2001. In order to continue the flow of federal funds to the region SCAG must adopt the 2001 RTP and the federal agencies must approve the plan before June 30, 2001. Therefore, these next few months will be critical as policy decisions are being formulated to achieve the mobility and environmental needs of the region. SCAG began the RTP development last year and has established several committees to provide input and develop recommendations on the following plan areas: • Goods Movement (Truck and Rail) • -Highway and Local Arterial • Transit Restructuring (Bus and Rail) • Growth Forecasts • Aviation • Financing • Transportation Corridors • High Speed Rail Members of the various committees include County Transportation Commissions, Subregional Agencies, Transit Operators, local agencies, including private sector agencies. 000001 AGENDA ITEM 6 RIVERS/DE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMM/SS/ON DATE: September 25, 2000 TO: Plans and Programs Committee FROM: Naty Kopenhaver, Director of Administrative Services THROUGH: Eric Haley, Executive Director SUBJECT: Proposed FY 2000-2001 Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program (DBE) and Overall Annual Goal for Federally Funded DOT - Assisted Projects STAFF RECOMMENDATION: That the Committee: 1) Approve RCTC's FY 2000-2001 Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program; 2) Set 17.8% for its DBE participation overall annual goal for federally funded and DOT -assisted projects; 3) Authorize staff to submit its DBE Program to Caltrans District 08's Local Assistance and to the FTA for approval; 4) Authorize staff to make necessary revisions to the consultant/contractor model agreements to comply with necessary Federal contract clause revisions; and 5) Forward to the Commission for final action. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: The purpose of the DBE Program is to ensure equal opportunity in transportation contracting markets, address the effects of discrimination in transportation contracting, and promote increased participation in federally funded contracts by small, socially and economically disadvantaged businesses, including minority and women owned enterprises. DBEs must be certified by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), or by a local agency with a reciprocity agreement with Caltrans, in order to be eligible as a DBE. Changes to the DBE Program, as set forth in the Federal Register 49 CFR Part 26, must be incorporated in the agency's program. An agency receiving federal funds must submit its revised program that meets the federal requirements to Caltrans by October 1. Changes to the Program includes how local agencies receiving federal funds develop its DBE participation goal, documentation requirements before and 000003 $ 5, 551,000 ($1,426,000 - construction, $4,115,000 - professional services, $10,000 - materials/supplies). Using the above -mentioned information, the proposed annual overall goal for FY 2000-2001 for DBE participation is 17.8% ( see attached). For FY 1999-2000, the Commission has set its goal at 11.6 %. Through award of projects, the Commission's attained 18% DBE participation goal last fiscal year. In reviewing the federally funded projects for the upcoming fiscal year, the Commission should be able to attain the 17.8% DBE participation goal. Because of a previously planned vacation, I will not be .able _to be present at the Committee's meeting. John Walsh, BB&K - Legal Counsel, will be presenting this item on my behalf and will answer any questions that the Committee might have. 000005 Calculating the Overall DBE Goal for October 1, 2000 through September 30, 2000 Construction Professional Services Materials/Supplies Base = {40.411 DBEs in WCC C99 + {59.191 DBEs in WCC C87,V8999 + {0.40} DBEs in WCC F50 x 100 Figure CBPs in SIC 15,16,17 BPs in SIC 47,64,73,81,87,87,89 CBPs in SIC 50 Construction Professional Services Materials/Supplies Base = {40.411 397 + {59.191 1581 + {0.40} 143 x 100 Figure 26965 62806 21865 Base = Figure 17.8% WCC - Caltrans Work Category Codes CBP - Census Bureau County Business Pattern SIC - Standard Industrial Classification RCTC Projected Contracting Opportunities For Fiscal Year 2000-2001 CONTRACT OPPORTUNITY FEDERAL FEDERAL TOTAL FEDERAL FUNDS CATEGORY CAPITAL FUNDS OPERATING FUNDS W/ CONTRACTING OPPORTUNITIES OPPORTUNITIES Construction $1,024,000.00 $0.00 $1,024,000.00 Professional Services $1,500,000.00 $0.00 $1,500,000.00 Materials/Supplies $ 10,000.00 $0.00 $ 10,000.00 Total $2,534.000.00 $0.00 $2,534,000.00 DISADVANTAGED BUSINESS ENTERPRISE (DBE) PROGRAM FORatig1 F RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION This Program is in accordance with Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations Part 26 000007 TABLE OF CONTENTS i Policy Statement Page 1 I Definition of Terms Page 1 II Objectives/Policy Statement Page 1 III NonDiscrimination Page 2 IV DBE Program Updates Page 2 V Quotas Page 2 VI DBE Liaison Officer Page 2 VII Other Support Personnel Page 3 ...., VIII Federal Financial Assistance Agreement Assurance Page 4 IX DBE Financial Institutions Page 5 X Directory Page 5 XI Overconcentration Page 5 XII Business Development Programs Page 6 XIII Required Contract Clauses Page 6 (1) Contract Assurance Page 6 (2) Prompt Payment Page 6 XIV Monitoring and Enforcement Mechanisms Page 7 A.

The procedures contained in the DBE Program shall assure that all contracts and procedures shall be administered without discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, or national origin. RCTC shall ensure that DBEs have an equal opportunity to compete for and participate in _the performance of all contract and subcontracts awarded by RCTC. The Executive Director is responsible for adherence to this policy. The Director of Administrative Services shall be responsible for the development, implementation and monitoring of this program. It is the expectation of the Riverside County Transportation Commission and the Executive Director that the stipulations and provisions contained in this DBE Program shall be adhered to both in the spirit and letter by all RCTC personnel. RCTC shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, or sex in the award and performance of any federally assisted contract or in the administration of its DBE Program or the requirements of 49 CFR Part 26. The recipient shall take all necessary and reasonable steps under 49 CFR Part 26 to ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of federally funded and DOT assisted contracts. The recipient's DBE Program, as required by 49 CFR Part 26 and as approved by the DOT, is incorporated by reference in this agreement. Implementation of this program is a legal obligation and failure to carry out its terms shall be treated as a violation of this agreement. Upon notification to the RCTC of its failure to carry out its approved program, RCTC may impose sanctions as provided for under Part 26 and may, in appropriate cases, refer the matter for enforcement under 18 U.S.C. 1001 and/or Program Fraud Civil Remedies Act of 1986 (31 U.S.C. 3801 et. seq.). This policy shall be circulated to the members of RCTC Board, its employees and business organizations that perform work that are federally funded and DOT assisted contracts.

II OBJECTIVES/POLICY STATEMENT (§§26.1, 26.23) The Riverside County Transportation Commission, hereinafter referred Ad as. RCTC, has established a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program, in accordance with regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), 49 CFR Part 26. RCTC has received Federal financial assistance from the DOT, and as a condition of receiving this assistance, RCTC will sign an assurance that it will comply with 49 CFR Part 26. It is the policy of RCTC to ensure that DBEs, as defined in Part 26, have an equal opportunity to receive and participate in DOT -assisted contracts. It is also its policy to: e • • • • Ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of DOT -assisted contracts; Create a level playing field on which DBE can compete fairly for DOT - assisted contracts; Ensure that the DBE Program is narrowly tailored in accordance with applicable law; Ensure that only firms that fully meet 49 CFR Part 26 eligibility standards are permitted to participate as DBEs;''''': Help remove barriers to the participation of DBEs in DOT -assisted contracts; and, Assist the development of firms that can compete successfully in the market place outside the DBE Program. Eric Haley, RCTC's Executive Director, shall appoint a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Liaison Officer (DBELO). In that capacity, the DBELO shall be responsible for implementing all aspects of the DBE Program. Implementation of the DBE Program is accorded the same priority as compliance with all other legal obligations incurred by RCTC in its financial assistance agreements with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). RCTC shall disseminated this policy statement to the Board of the Riverside County Transportation Commission and all components of its organization. This statement shall be distributed to DBE and non -DBE business communities that perform work for us on DOT -assisted contracts by publishing this statement in general circulation, minority -focused and trade association publications. 2 000010 (5) Identifies contracts and procurements so that DBE goals are included in solicitations (both race -neutral methods and contract specific goals) and monitors results; (6) Analyzes RCTC's progress toward goal attainment and identifies ways to improve progress; (7) Participates in pre -bid meetings; (8) Advises the Executive Director, Committees and the Commission on DBE matters and achievement; (9) Participates with legal counsel and project director to determine contractor compliance with good faith efforts; (10) Provides DBEs with information and assistance in preparing bids, obtaining bonding and insurance; (11) Participates in DBE training seminars; and, (12) Provides outreach to DBEs and community organizations to advise them of opportunities.

(6) Notify the DBELO of scheduled pre -bid, pre -proposal and pre - construction conferences. (3) All RCTC Project Managers shall: (1) Develop a working knowledge of RCTC's DBE Program, policies and procedures for implementation. `000012 4 XI OVERCONCENTRATION (§26.33) Currently, RCTC has not identified any types of work in DOT -assisted contracts that have an over -concentration of DBE participation. If in the future RCTC identifies the need to address over -concentration, measures for addressing over - concentration will be submitted to the DLAE for approval. XII BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS (§26.35) Currently, RCTC does not have a business development or mentor -protegee program. If RCTC identifies the need for such a program in .the future, the rationale for adopting such a program and a comprehensive description of it will be submitted to the DLAE for approval. XIII REQUIRED CONTRACT CLAUSES (§ §26.13, 26.29) CONTRACT ASSURANCE RCTC ensures that the following clause is placed in every DOT -assisted contract and subcontract: The contractor or subcontractor shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, or sex in the performance of this contract. The contractor shall carry out applicable requirements of 49 CFR Part 26 in the award and administration of DOT -assisted contracts. Failure by the contractor to carry out these requirements is a material breach of this contract, which may result in the termination of this contract or such other remedy as recipient deems appropriate. PROMPT PAYMENT RCTC ensures that the following clauses or equivalent will be included in each DOT -assisted prime contract: Satisfactory Performance The prime contractor agrees to pay each subcontractor under this prime contract for satisfactory performance of its contract no later than 10 days from the receipt of each payment the prime contractor receives from RCTC. Any delay or postponement of payment from the above referenced time frame may occur only for good cause following written approval of RCTC. This clause applies to both DBE and non -DBE subcontractors. Release of Retannage The prime contractor agrees further to release retainage payments to 6 000014 4100-4144. FPA requires the contractor to list all subcontractors in excess of one half of one percent (0.5 %) of the contractor's total bid or $10,000, whichever is greater. The statute is designed to prevent bid shopping by contractors. The FPA explains that a contractor may not substitute a subcontractor listed in the original bid except with the approval of the awarding authority. The CPMU will give the contractor a blank "Final Report Utilization of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises, First Tier Subcontractors" (Exhibit IV) and will explain to them that the document will be required at the end of the project, in conformance with the contract and that failure to submit the Report can result in withholding of payments to the contractors. Construction Contract Monitoring The CPMU will ensure that its staff (inspectors) know what items of work each DBE is responsible for performing. Inspectors will notify the CPMU immediately of apparent violations. When a firm other than the listed DBE subcontractor is found performing the work, the CPMU will notify the contractor of the apparent discrepancy and potential loss of payment. Based on the contractor's response, the CPMU will take appropriate action: The DBE Liaison Officer will perform a preliminary investigation to identify any potential issues related to the DBE subcontractor performing a commercially useful function. Any substantive issues will be forwarded to the Caltrans Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program. If the contractor fails to adequately explain why there is a discrepancy, payment for the work will be withheld and a letter will be sent to the contractor referencing the applicable specification violation and the required withholding of payment. If the contract requires the submittal of a monthly truck document, the contractor will be required to submit documentation to the CPMU showing the owner's name; California Highway Patrol CA number; and the DBE certification number of the owner of the truck for each truck used during that month for which DBE participation will be claimed. The trucks will be listed by California Highway Patrol CA number in the daily diary or on a separate piece of paper for documentation. The numbers are checked by inspectors regularly to confirm compliance. Providing evidence of DBE payment is the responsibility of the contractor. Substitution When a DBE substitution is requested, the CPMU will request a letter from the contractor explaining why substitution is needed. The CPMU must review the letter to be sure names and addresses are shown, dollar values are included, and the reason for the request is explained. If the CPMU agrees to the substitution, 8 000016 Internet at www.dot.ca.gov/ha/bep and keep the CPMU informed of changes that affect the contract. The Liaison Officer will use the PS&E checklist to monitor RCTC's commitment to require bidders list information to be submitted to RCTC from the awarded prime and subcontractors as a means to develop a bidders list. This monitoring will only take place if the bidders list information is required to be submitted as stipulated in the special provisions. RCTC will bring to the attention of the DOT through the Liaison Officer any false, fraudulent, or dishonest conduct in connection with the program, so that DOT- can take the steps (e.g., referral to the Department of Justice for -criminal prosecution, referral to the DOT Inspector General, action under suspension and debarment or Program Fraud and Civil Penalties rules) provided in § 26.109. RCTC also will consider similar action under its legal authorities, including responsibility determinations in future contracts. XV CONTRACT GOALS (§26.51) RCTC will use contract goals in order to meet its overall goal where it cannot meet its overall goal by race -neutral means. Contract goals may be established so that, over the period to which the overall goal applies, they will cumulatively result in meeting any portion of the overall goal that is not projected to be met through the use of race -neutral means. Contract goals will be established only on those federally funded contracts that have subcontracting possibilities. Contract goals need not be established on every such contract, and the size of contract goals will be adapted to the circumstances of each such contract (e.g., type and location of work, availability of DBEs t❑ perform the particular type of work). The contract work items will be compared with eligible DBE contractors willing to work on the project. A determination will also be made to decide which items are likely to be performed by the prime contractor and which ones are likely to be performed by the subcontractor(s). The goal will then be incorporated into the contract documents. Contract goals will be expressed as a percentage of the total amount of a federally -assisted contract. Information to be Submitted RCTC treats bidders/offerors' compliance with good faith effort requirements as a matter of responsiveness. A responsive proposal is meeting all the requirements of the advertisement and solicitation. Each solicitation for which a contract goal has been established will require the bidders/offerors to submit the following information to 3560 University Avenue, Riverside, California 92501 no later than 4:00 p.m. on or before the fourth day, not including Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays, following bid opening: 10 00001E inability or unwillingness to perform and provide reasonable documentation. In this situation, the prime contractor will be required to obtain from RCTC prior approval of the substitute DBE and to provide copies of new or amended subcontracts, or documentation of good faith efforts. If the contractor fails or refuses to comply in the time specified, RCTC's contracting office will issue an order stopping all or part of payment/work until satisfactory action has been taken. If the contractor still fails to comply, the contracting officer may issue a termination for default proceeding. XVI OVERALL GOALS (§26.45) The RCTC shall establish contract goals only on those federally funded contracts that. have subcontracting possibilities. RCTC need not establish a contract goal on every such contract, and the size of contract goals will be adapted to the circumstances of each such contract (i.e., type and location of work, availability of DBEs to perform the particular type of work). The RCTC will compare the contract work items with eligible DBE contractors willing to work on the project. A determination will also be made to decide which items are likely to be performed by the prime contractor and which ones are likely to be performed by subcontractors. The goal will then be incorporated into the contract documents. RCTC will express its contract goals as a percentage to the total amount of federally assisted contracts. Amount of Goal RCTC's overall goal for the Federal FY 2000-2001 is the following: 17.8% of the Federal financial assistance in FHWA-assisted contracts. RCTC estimates that 26% of this overall goal will be reached through race -neutral means and 74% will be met through contract::; goals.::'`'`" Methodology (1) Projecting DOT -Assisted Contract Expenditures In conjunction with the preparation and adoption of the budget for each fiscal year, the CPMU, in consultation with the appropriate RCTC departments responsible for contracting activities, shall conduct a thorough analysis of the projected number, type of work, and dollar amounts of contacting opportunities that shall be funded, in whole or part, by DOT federal assistance for that fiscal year. This analysis shall exclude projected contract expenditures with Transit Vehicle Manufacturers, who are exempt from the Program as described herein. (2) Establishing a Base Figure Pursuant to 49 CFR 26.45, RCTC shall develop a base figure to express 12 000020 the fiscal year. The calculation shall include a weight factor according to the contract expenditure pattern: (1) Adjusting the Base Figure: Pursuant to 49 CFR 26.45(d), RCTC shall adjust the base figure based on demonstrable evidence indicating that the number of available DBEs for federally funded DOT -assisted contracts for the fiscal year may be higher of lower than the base figure indicates. At a minimum, the DBELO and the CPMU shall analyze the results of RCTC's efforts to contract with DBEs for the past two years, any -available and relevant results of other, similar DOT recipients' efforts to contract with DBEs, any relevant factor or projections from DBE professional organizations or others. Using the data collected regarding over -concentration, DBE availability of firms ready, willing and able, and other necessary adjustments, a goal shall be set at the level of DBE participation expected absence the effects of discrimination.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Attached is the planned schedule for the environmental study work required on the Banning/Beaumont to Temecula Corridor and the Hemet to Corona/Lake Elsinore Corridor. The required work on the two inter -county corridors (Riverside to Orange County and Moreno Valley to San Bernardino County) will proceed under separate schedules as determined by the bi-county coordinating committee for each corridor. The schedule highlights major milestones we need to meet in order to complete the Draft EIR/EIS by mid -July for the public hearing phase. During the month of October we will begin circulating a working paper to assist in the evaluation of initial alternatives within each of the internal corridors. The CETAP Advisory Committee will first see this document on October 3`d. Follow-up meetings have been scheduled for October 12" to allow additional opportunity for questions and answers from the Advisory Committee. Additionally, we have a meeting on October 16th with RCTC's Technical Advisory Committee to allow the Public Works Directors the opportunity to provide comment. Three public meetings will also be scheduled in late October. The recommendations on alternatives to be evaluated in greater detail as part of the EIR/EIS process will come forward to the Commission at the November 8m meeting. Also attached for your review is the Community Outreach Plan for the two intra-county corridors. In order to complete the EIR/EIS process, it is critical that we share what we are planning with the public and provide opportunities for their input. In addition to public meetings, we are planning to provide briefings to the City Councils, develop two newsletters, as well continue to post information on the RCIP web site. 000029 SCHEDULE FOR CETAP CORRIDOR EVALUATIONS BANNINGBEAUMONT TO TEMECULA CORRIDOR AND HEMET TO CORONA/LAICE ELSINORE CORRIDOR This schedule identifies current major target dates for the CETAP corridor environmental studies for the two intra-county corridors. The Moreno Valley to San Bernardino County and Orange County corridors will proceed under separate schedules as identified by the bi-county committees for each corridor. October 3, 2000 — Present working papers (one for each of the internal corridors) to the CETAP Advisory Committee on evaluation of initial alternatives. The objective of the working papers is a further screening of the alternatives to allow a narrowing down of the alternatives to those that will be carried into more detailed evaluation in the EIR/EIS. October 12 — Follow-up Question/Answer session on the working papers for the CETAP Advisory Committee and other interested parties Late October — Hold three public meetings to allow the public to review the results of the working papers and to provide input to which alternatives should be carried further. These public meetings will also serve as the scoping meetings under NEPA/CEQA. November 7 - Present recommendations to the CETAP Advisory Committee on alternatives to be evaluated in greater detail in the ElR/EIS for each corridor. The hope is to obtain concurrence on the alternatives to move forward at that meeting. Immediately thereafter, we would provide that information to the appropriate Federal and State agencies to initiate their concurrence process. The target would be to carry three alteratives into more detailed evaluation in each corridor. Each alternative may have a highway and transit element. End of December - NEPA/404 agencies provide concurrence on Purpose and Need, evaluation criteria, and alternatives. Early January 2001 — Detailed engineering and environmental studies are initiated for the more limited number of alternatives. CETAP Advisory Committee meets every other month from January to July. Mid July — Complete the Draft EIR/EIS for each corridor and release to public. Late July — Hold second set of public meetings to obtain input on evaluation of detailed alternatives. October — RCTC and Board of Supervisors recommend a preferred alternative for each corridor. November — Engineering completed on right-of-way for preferred alternative December — Final EIR/EIS completed April, 2002 — Record of Decision prepared and published 000030 AGENDA ITEM 8 RIVERS/DE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: September 25, 2000 TO: Plans and Programs Committee FROM: Tanya Love, Program Manager THROUGH: Cathy Bechtel, Director of Planning and Programming SUBJECT: FY 00/01 State Transit Assistance Allocations .and Resolution No. 00-015, "A Resolution of the Riverside County Transportation Commission to Allocate State Transit Assistance Funds" STAFF RECOMMENDATION This item is to seek Committee approval to: 1) Approve the FY 00/01 State Transit Assistance Fund allocations in Riverside County as presented on the attached table; 2) Adopt Resolution No. 00-015; and 3) Forward to the Commission for final action. BACKGROUND INFORMATION In order for the public transit operators to claim State Transit Assistance (STA) funds for operating and capital purposes, the Commission must allocate funds to support the transit services and capital projects contained in the approved FY 2001-2007 Short Range Transit Plan (SRTP) identified for funding with State Transit Assistance funds. When the SRTP was prepared, the operators assumed for planning purposes that the State appropriation of funds would be the same as the previous year. According to the State Controller's Office, the amount of STA funds that are expected to be received in Riverside County for FY 01 is $2,478,010 ($2,237,813 discretionary pot, $240,197 operators specific pot). An additional $115,246 in unapportioned STA funds (reference RCTC's FY 99 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report) and $921,203 in western Riverside county STA funds is also available (reference RCTC's FY 01 Revenue Estimates) bringing the total to $3,514,459. The attached table outlines the specific operator allocations which need to be approved by the Commission. The State allocated non -discretionary funds will be used first with the balance derived from the discretionary allocation. 000032 Attachment A RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION STATE TRANSIT ASSISTANCE ALLOCATIONS STATE TRANSIT ASSISTANCE FY 01 ALLOCATION Current Year Allocation Requests per SRTP Western Riverside Bus Western Riverside Rail Coachella Valley Palo Verde Valley Banning $170,000 Beaumont $100,000 Blythe $0 Commuter Rail $450,000 Corona $100,000 Riverside Special Services $42,500 Riverside Transit Agency $1,973,000 SunLine Transit Agency $480 000 Total Current Year Funding Requests Per Area $2,385,500 $450,000 $480,000 $0 Total Current Year Funding$3 Requests All Areas= 315 500 ' `==`` ' _____________ ':;�.. %° h >;=: :<: _ •f <: h 000034 RESOLUTION NO. 00-015 A RESOLUTION OF THE RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION TO ALLOCATE STATE TRANSIT ASSISTANCE FUNDS WHEREAS, the Riverside County Transportation Commission is designated the regional entity responsible for the allocation of State Transit Assistance Funds within Riverside County; and WHEREAS, the Riverside County Transportation Commission has examined the Short Range Transit Plan and Transportation Improvement Program; and WHEREAS, all proposed expenditures in Riverside County are in conformity with the Regional Transportation Plan; and WHEREAS, the level of passenger fares is sufficient for claimants to meet the fare revenue requirements of Public Utilities Code Sections 99268.2, 99268.3, 99268.4, 99268.5, and 99268.9, as applicable; and WHEREAS, the claimant is making full use of federal funds available under the Urban Mass Transportation Act of 1964, as amended; and WHEREAS, the sum of the claimant's allocations from the state transit assistance fund and from the local transportation fund does not exceed the amount the claimant is eligible to receive during the fiscal year; and WHEREAS, priority consideration has been given to claims to offset reductions in federal operating assistance and the unanticipated increase in the cost of fuel, to enhance existing public transportation services, and to meet high priority regional, countywide, or area -wide public transportation needs; and WHEREAS, the public transit operators have made a reasonable effort to implement the productivity improvements recommended pursuant to Public Utilities Code Section 99244; and WHEREAS, the claimant is not precluded by any contract entered into on or after June 28, 1979 from employing part-time drivers or contracting with common carriers or persons operating under a franchise or license.

'000035 AGENDA ITEM 9 RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: September 25, 2000 TO: Plans and Programs Committee FROM: Tanya Love, Program Manager THROUGH: Cathy Bechtel, Director of Planning and Programming SUBJECT: FY 2000-01 Short Range Transit Plan Amendment for the Palo Verde Valley Transit Agency STAFF RECOMMENDATION: This item is to seek Committee approval to: 1) Amend the FY2000-01 Short Range Transit Plan for the Palo Verde Valley Transit Agency to allow implementation of a pilot program for transportation of veterans from the Palo Verde Valley into the Coachella Valley and Loma Linda for medical needs, 2) Allocate an additional $10,000 in Local Transportation Funds to pay for this pilot program, and 3) Forward to the Commission for final action. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: The Palo Verde Valley Transit Agency (PVVTA) is requesting an amendment to their FY 2000-01 Short Range Transit Plan (SRTP) to -support implementation of a pilot program to serve veterans needing to obtain medical services in the Coachella Valley and at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Loma Linda. As you will recall, the need -for this service was raised at the Unmet Transit Needs Hearing held by the Commission in March of this year. Representatives from the V.A. Hospital, County Veteran's Services, the Blythe Outpatient Committee, and the PVVTA have been discussing the best way to meet these travel needs in a cost effective manner. The Veteran's Transportation Program is being recommended as a pilot program which would run for a period of a year in order to determine its feasibility. The Government Services Agency has agreed .to provide a vehicle for this service. The PVVTA is requesting approval to use $10,000 in Local Transportation Funds available in the Palo Verde Valley to support the maintenance and operation of the vehicle and the operator's wages for this fiscal year. The service is initially planned to operate twice per month into the Coachella Valley and once per month into Loma Linda. The details of the service operation are still being refined and the actual number of trips may 000037 AGENDA ITEM 10 RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: September 25, 2000 TO: Plans and Programs Committee FROM: Stephanie Wiggins, Program Manager THROUGH: Cathy Bechtel, Director of Planning & Programming SUBJECT: Rail Program Update STAFF RECOMMENDATION: This item is to seek Committee approval to receive and file the Rail Program Update as an information item and forward to the Commission for final action. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: MTA Strike Update: The first full business day of the MTA strike was Monday, September 18. SCRRA Executive Director, David Solow, reports that "Metrolink and the MTA ran two routes to downtown locations. Ridership on the buses was more than 5,200/a.m. peak period riders. Our Metrolink ridership was only down 2-3 % but it is difficult to determine at this time how much our normal ridership is down versus "fill-in" from new MTA pass holders. We expect ridership to stabilize and bus ridership to increase over the next several days if the strike continues. We will be assessing whether additional buses are needed over the next 2-3 days." Riverside Line Weekday Patronage: Ridership on Metrolink's Riverside Line for the month of August averaged 4,133, a decrease of 5% from the month of July. Unfortunately, this summer we have experienced serious performance problems on the Line. In recent weeks, the number and duration of delays has increased significantly resulting in Metrolink's service deteriorating to unacceptable levels for our riders. In response to delays, Metrolink is offering a 2 for 1 monthly pass discount to Riverside Line riders only. The offer provides the December monthly pass free to purchasers of a November Riverside Line monthly pass. This discount is available only by mail. Metrolink staff continues to work with Union Pacific (UP) on a number of strategies to address the problems, including but not limited to, possible capital projects, legal remedies, and performance mitigation. As stated above, it is too early to tell if the MTA strike will have an impact on the ridership for this Line. 000039 Metrolink Offers 2 for 1 Monthly Pass on Riverside Line http://www.metrolink.-trains.com/news/091100_2for 1 pass_Riverside.htm News Release: METROLINK OFFERS 2 FOR 1 MONTHLY PASS FOR NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER ON RIVERSIDE LINE Regular riders to receive fare reduction due to ongoing service delays Contact: Claudia Keith (213) 452-0233 email: keithc@scrra.net LOS ANGELES, CA, MONDAY, SEPT. 11, 2000: Regular riders on Metrolink's Riverside Line will receive a 2 for 1 discount on November and December monthly passes in a policy approved by the Southern California Regional Rail Authority Board. A November/December monthly pass will be sold at the November fare for the designated number of zones traveled. Metrolink is offering the 2 for 1 pass program to compensate for the ongoing service delays passengers have experienced recently on the Riverside Line that is operated by Union Pacific. Passengers have been inconvenienced by service delays, signal outages and other operational breakdowns that have considerably reduced the line's overall on time performance. "These service delays have been recurrent and unpredictable," said Metrolink Board Chairman Bill Davis. "Passengers deserve a break. We need to recognize that there has been a degree of uncertainty they are going to arrive at their destination on time." By choosing the 2 for 1 program, passengers will essentially get a 50% discount on their November monthly pass and an added 25% discount in December since Metrolink regularly provides a 25% December discount to all riders. The two -month special pass will be valid only on the Riverside Line, and will be sold through the mail, at the Union Station ticket window or through Metrolink's Corporate Pass Program. Passes purchased for use on the San Bernardino or Riverside Lines normally can be used on either line. The ticket vending machines will continue to sell monthly passes at the normal price during November and December that are valid on both the Riverside and San Bernardino lines. Order forms for the special 2 for 1 passes will be available on Metrolink's 1 of 2 000041 9/11/00 4:00 PM Metrolink Offers 2 for 1 Monthly Pass on Riverside Line http://www.metrolinktrains.eom/news/091100_2foripass_Riverside.htm website at www.metrolinktrains.com and on passenger seat drops after Oct. 1. Passengers who regularly purchase ten -trip tickets and take at least 8 round trips a month on Metrolink may want to consider buying the two -month pass.
