APPROVAL OF MINUTES — OCTOBER 13, 2010 M/S/C (Kuenzi/Lowe) to approve the minutes of October 13, 2010, meeting as submitted. Abstain: DeConinck, Flickinger, and Hernandez 6. RESOLUTION OF NECESSITY FOR THE ACQUISITION OF FEE, EASEMENT, AND TEMPORARY CONSTRUCTION EASEMENT INTERESTS IN CERTAIN REAL PROPERTY, LOCATED IN RIVERSIDE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, BY EMINENT DOMAIN, FOR THE CONSTRUCTION AND MAINTENANCE OF IMPROVEMENTS RELATED TO THE STATE ROUTE 91 HIGH OCCUPANCY VEHICLE LANES FROM ADAMS STREET TO THE 60/91/215 INTERCHANGE, IN RIVERSIDE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA At this time, Chair Buster opened the public hearing and requested legal counsel to explain the nature and scope of the hearing. Steve DeBaun, legal counsel, explained the purpose of this hearing is for the Board to consider the adoption of Resolution of Necessity No. 10-027 for the acquisition of fee and temporary construction easement interests necessary for the SR-91 high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane project. He stated at the conclusion of this hearing, the Board will be asked to adopt the resolution of necessity and he provided the four findings. Tara Byerly, Deputy Clerk of the Board, verified the proofs of mailing that certify notices were sent to the property owner of said parcel numbers. Min Saysay, Right of Way Manager, explained the Commission is requested to determine and find the full requirements for the adoption of resolution of necessity declaring its intent to acquire interest in real property through eminent domain for the construction and maintenance of the SR-91 HOV lanes project in the city of Riverside. He explained the project calls for the construction of two HOV lanes on SR-91 between Adams Street and the 60/91 /215 interchange to improve ramps, bridges, and access, and modify interchanges that will reduce traffic congestion and enhance safety. He presented the following items:., • A review of the four required findings; • SR-91 HOV lane project map and the location of property; and • An aerial view depicting the project area and the property being acquired highlighting the location of the freeway widening, the detention basin, the existing 42" water line, and the new 54" water line. • • Riverside County Transportation Commission Minutes November 10, 2010 Page 3 Commissioner Mary Craton expressed concern for the relocation of the water line, which was not included in the staff's report and asked if there are buildings on the property that will be destroyed. Min Saysay replied there are three buildings that will be demolished, however, the property owner will be compensated for the loss of income for these buildings. Additionally, the property owner has requested to handle the relocation of the personal properties for the tenants. However, federal and state regulations must be followed and if the Commission turns over the responsibility to the property owner there is no guarantee that all of those requirements will be satisfied. Steve DeBaun clarified the purpose of the hearing is to consider the information provided by staff with regards to the need for the project, the location and planning of the project, the real property to be acquired, and offers of just compensation. He explained there will be several discussions with the property owner on implementing a settlement, the specific concerns the property owner has with regards to compensation or relocations, which are not appropriate for this hearing. He recommended focusing on the findings that must be made because those findings support the resolution of necessity. Commissioner Bob Magee requested clarification from legal counsel regarding discussion of the water line. Steve DeBaun replied the water line may be discussed as it relates to the findings. Commissioner Magee suggested redesigning the water line so it could be located under the drive aisles to preserve the buildings and expressed concern for the related disruption of the recreational vehicle (RV) storage. Min Saysay explained the issue was raised to relocate the water line between the buildings, however, based on city requirements, that area would become a permanent disruption to the entire business. Mark Patel, Ca!trans District 8, added the city of Riverside requested there be no permanent RV parking on top of the easement due to possible maintenance of the new water line. Commissioner Berg expressed concern that permanent RV parking will no longer be available once the new water line is installed. Riverside County Transportation Commission Minutes November 10, 2010 Page 4 In response to Commissioner Henderson's question about the issues being raised at this hearing and if these issues can still be open for discussion as the eminent domain process moves, Steve DeBaun concurred. Chair Buster stated these issues and questions can still be resolved after this hearing. Anne Mayer concurred with Chair Buster's comment and stated that staff will explore certain aspects as directed by the Commission. Commissioner Jeff Stone expressed that he believes every administrative remedy has not been exhausted for the benefit of the property owner being impacted. He suggested these issues need to be resolved before moving forward with eminent domain. In response to Commissioner Kathy Azevedo's concern regarding relocation of the tenants, Min Saysay explained the tenants will be afforded all the benefits under federal and state regulations and described the general process, noting that this is a self storage facility. Tara Byerly stated there were no written objections or protests received. Chair Buster called upon any persons with an interest in any of these properties who wish to be heard on this matter. There were no requests to speak. Chair Buster then called upon all other persons who wish to be heard on this matter. There were no requests to speak. At this time, Chair Buster closed the public hearing. Anne Mayer reiterated that the staff recommendation does not restrict the Commission's ability to attempt to settle the issues with the parties involved. M/S/C (Farnam/Pettis) to: 1) Make the following findings as hereinafter described in this report: a) The public interest and necessity require the proposed project; b) The project is planned or located in a manner that will be most compatible with the greatest public good and the least private injury; Riverside County Transportation Commission Minutes November 10, 2010 Page 5 c) The real property to be acquired is necessary for the project; and d) The offer of just compensation has been made to the property owner. 2) Adopt Resolution of Necessity No. 10-027, Resolution of Necessity for the Acquisition of Fee, Easement, and Temporary Construction Easement Interests in Certain Real Property, Located in Riverside County, California, by Eminent Domain, More Particularly Described as Assessor Parcel No. 223-050-010 (Ca!trans Parcel Nos. 20417-1, 20417-2, 20417-3, and 20417-4), for the Construction and Maintenance of Improvements Related to the State Route 91 High Occupancy Vehicle Lanes, from Adams Street to the 60/91/215 Interchange, in Riverside County, California."

POLICY UPDATE ON THE USE OF STATE TRANSIT ASSISTANCE FUNDING BY OPERATORS Robert Yates, Multimodal Services Director, provided an overview of the policy update on the use of State Transit Assistance (STA) funding by the transit operators. In response to Commissioner Henderson's question about the percentage of STA funding received compared to previous years, Robert Yates replied that while he was uncertain of the exact figure, all agencies that received STA funding were shorted. Anne Mayer explained the STA account is so volatile and unpredictable that it is uncertain from one fiscal year to the next how much funding will be available. The $400 million statewide STA allocation was based on a one-time allocation as a part of the gas tax swap. She suggested staff evaluate the historical levels of the statewide STA allocations over the past several fiscal years. Robert Yates stated the STA funding allocation is based on population and therefore by formula. An analysis will be provided of the STA funding allocations from previous years. In response to Commissioner Ron Roberts' question regarding STA funding to the Boys and Girls Club, Robert Yates replied the Boys and Girls Club is funded through Measure A whereas STA funds are disbursed to the public operators. In response to Commissioner Karen Spiegel's request for clarification regarding disbursement of the STA funds, Robert Yates stated the STA funds are disbursed by formula to the operators. Riverside County Transportation Commission Minutes November 10, 2010 Page 8 M/S/C (Lowe/Henderson) to: 1) Approve the use of unallocated and unprogrammed State Transit Assistance (STA) funds solely for transit capital project financing purposes and for the provision of matching funds to federal capital grants; and 2) Approve the use of unallocated and unprogrammed STA for transit operations only in a circumstance of extreme emergency. 10. COMMISSION ADVOCACY ON BEHALF OF ADDITIONAL SUNSET LIMITED SERVICE Sheldon Peterson, Rail Manager, provided an overview of the Commission's support for implementation and expansion of reliable intercity rail service to Coachella Valley. Commissioner Roger Berg recommended working closely with the San Gorgonio Pass (Pass) area cities, which includes the cities of Banning, Beaumont, and Calimesa concerning passenger rail to the Coachella Valley. He discussed the plans for a rail spur that is located in the city of Beaumont. Sheldon Peterson replied a Pass area stop was included in the current feasibility study and will continue to be included moving forward. In response to Commissioner Scott Hines' question about the acquired property for a prospective location in the city of Rancho Mirage, Sheldon Peterson replied the Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG) purchased 17 acres of land near the Agua Caliente Casino for a proposed rail stop. Commissioner Henderson concurred with staff's recommendation and suggested the Commissioners support the recommendation in support of the efforts by Coachella Valley. Commissioner Bob Botts concurred with Commissioner Berg's comments and recommended including the Pass area as part of the staff recommendation.

ADJOURNMENT There being no further business for consideration by the Riverside County Transportation Commission, the meeting was adjourned at 10:53 a.m. The next Commission meeting is scheduled to be held at 9:30 a.m., Wednesday, December 8, 2010, in the Board Room, at the County of Riverside Administrative Center, 4080 Lemon Street, Riverside, California. Respectfully submitted, Jennifer Harmon Clerk of the Board • • RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: December 8, 2010 TO: Riverside County Transportation Commission FROM: Jennifer Harmon, Office and Board Services Manager THROUGH: Anne Mayer, Executive Director SUBJECT: Proposed 2011 Commission/Committee Meetings Needs Public Hearing Schedule and Transit STAFF RECOMMENDATION: This item is for the Commission to adopt its 2011 Commission/Committee Meetings and Unmet Transit Needs Public Hearing Schedule. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: The Commission is scheduled to meet on the second Wednesday of each month at 9:30 a.m. Additionally, the Executive Committee is scheduled at 9:00 a.m. on the same day. The Commission's policy committees - Budget and Implementation and Western Riverside County Programs and Projects - meet on the fourth Monday of each month at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., respectively. Additionally, the Eastern Riverside County Programs and Projects Committee meets on the first Monday of each month at 10:30 a.m., except when the first Monday falls on a holiday or in the same week as a Commission meeting. There are times when a committee meeting may be cancelled due to lack of substantive agenda items. When this occurs, the Commissioners will be notified and items are forwarded directly to the Commission for final action. Included in the 2011 Schedule is a public hearing for transit needs. The Palo Verde Valley area intends to utilize 100% of its Transportation Development Act (TDA) allocation for transit operations in FY 201 1 /12. Therefore, an unmet transit needs public hearing in the Palo Verde Valley area is unnecessary. However, as part of the Public Utilities Code Section 99238.5 related to TDA, the Commission is required to hold one public hearing in Riverside County to solicit the input of transit dependent and transit disadvantaged persons.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: At its December 2007 meeting, the Commission awarded an agreement to MuniServices, LLC (MuniServices) for quarterly sales tax reporting services plus additional fees contingent on additional sales tax revenue generated from the transactions and use tax (sales tax) audit services. The services performed under this agreement pertain to only the Measure A sales tax revenues. Since the commencement of these services, MuniServices has submitted an audit update, which reported findings that have been generated and submitted to the State Board of Equalization (SBOE) for review and determination of errors in sales tax reporting related to 138 businesses. Through Q2 2010 for April through June 2010, the SBOE has approved corrections for 85 of these accounts for a total sales tax revenue recovery of $992,125. If the SBOE concurs with the error(s) for the remaining claims, the Commission would receive additional revenues; however, the magnitude of the value of the remaining findings was not available. It is important to note that while the recoveries of additional revenues will be tangible, it will not be sufficient to alter the overall trend of sales tax revenues. Additionally, MuniServices provided the Commission with the quarterly sales tax summary report for the second quarter of calendar 2010 for April through June 2010. Most of the Q2 2010 Measure A sales tax revenues was received by the Commission in the third quarter of calendar 2010, during July through September 2010, due to a lag in the sales tax calendar. The summary section of the Q2 2010 report is included as Attachment 1 and includes an overview of California sales tax receipts, local results, historical cash collections analysis, summary of the top 25 sales tax contributors, historical sales tax amounts, sales Agenda Item 7C 13 tax by business category, economic trends for a significant business category, and results. The following observations were noted in the Q2 2010 report: • Sales tax receipts for Riverside County were 7.2% higher compared to the Q2 2009 and comparable to the state's experience. This seems to support the prior quarterly report analysis that the economic decline was slowing and that there are signs of an economic recovery statewide and locally. • Taxable transactions for the top 25 tax contributors in Riverside County, which generated 24% of the taxable sales in Q2 2010, increased .9% compared to Q2 2009. For the top 100 tax contributors, which generated 38% of the taxable sales, the growth was 2.5%. • Over the last two-year period, the Q2 2010 sales tax levels continued to be at or near the low points for 7 of the top 10 economic segments; the levels for service stations and new auto sales improved by moving above the low points. Apparel sales reached a new high point during Q2 2010. • Over the last two-year period, the Q2 2010 sales tax levels for wholesale and retail building materials showed a significant variance from the high point, indicating that these segments continue to have been significantly affected by the recession. • Department stores, service stations, and restaurants continue to represent the three largest economic segments for Riverside County, although the there was a change in the second and third position. • The order of the top 10 economic segments has been consistent in the last two quarters' benchmark year comparisons. There had been some shifting of positions primarily in the bottom half of the tier during the 2009 quarterly comparisons. • When comparing the Q2 2010 benchmark year level to Q2 2008, the decrease over the two-year period is 20.7%, which is an improvement over the Q1 2010 to Q1 2009 decrease of 23.5%. • The transportation economic category was the only category with an increase (1.2%) in the Q2 2010 benchmark year comparison to Q1 2009. Construction and business to business, which comprised almost 26% of the sales tax receipts, continue to struggle with declines of 16.3% and 11.5%, respectively. During the review of the Q2 2010 detailed report with MuniServices, information regarding sales tax comparisons by city and change by economic category from Q2 2009 to Q2 2010 was provided, and is included as Attachment 2. The cities of Menifee and Wildomar are not presented due to lack of data. Staff continues to monitor monthly sales tax receipts and other available economic data to determine the need for any additional adjustment to the revenue projections in FY 2010/11. Staff will utilize the forecast scenarios included with the complete report and recent trends in assessing such projections. Agenda Item 7C • 14 • • • Attachments: 1) Sales Tax Analysis for Q2 2010 2) Sales Tax Comparison by City for Q2 2010 to Q2 2009 Agenda Item 7C 15 Riverside County Transportation Commission Sales Tax Digest Summary Collections through September 2010 Sales through June 2010 (2Q2010) ATTACHMENT 1 CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW For the second quarter in a row, California experienced sales tax growth. This quarter also marked the first quarter in years with all regions in California showing positive growth. Statewide sales tax receipts during July -September 2010 grew by 7.1% from the same three months in 2009. Northern California grew by 8.5% and Southern California grew by 6.4%. As for Riverside County Transportation Commission, its sales tax receipts changed by 7.2%from July -September 2009 to July -September 2010. CALIFORNIA'S FUTURE Expect General Retail sales to be flat in FY 2011 with growth between 3.5% and 4.5% through FY 2015. Sales tax from Services Stations will continue to be volatile. Construction will continue its drop during FY 2011 by close to 15% before growing by 2.5% per year through FY 2014. Food Products, which includes Restaurants, will grow with core CPI of 2.4% per year with price pressures upward of 3.5% in FY 2015. Auto sales will remain flat during FY 2011 until pent up demand will cause buyers, who will be seeking lower -priced vehicles, to increase purchases during FY 2012 and 2013 by 3%. County Pool receipts will follow the auto sales trends as third -party vehicle sales resume along with overall car sales volume. In order to establish an economic rebound, California needs job growth both locally and regionally to increase spending business travel. Housing prices must stabilize and register 5% growth to restore some levels of the wealth effect and to strengthen consumer confidence. A broader taxable base and a lower rate would provide better growth as well as a more stable source of sales tax revenues over time.
