BACKGROUND INFORMA T/ON: Measure A provides member agencies with local funding for street maintenance and operations, street repairs, street improvements, and new infrastructure of the local streets and roads systems. Since the new authorization of Measure A in 2009, the cities and the county of Riverside received over $201 million from July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2014. Measure A imposes several requirements on local agencies in order to receive LSR funds. First, the Coachella Valley and Western County cities and the county must participate in either the Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG) or Western Riverside Council of Governments (WRCOG) Transportation Uniform Mitigation Fee (TUMF) program. Western County agencies must also participate in the Western Riverside County Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan managed by the Western Riverside County Regional Conservation Authority (RCA). Staff received confirmation from WRCOG and RCA regarding the current participation by Norco in these programs. Additionally, agencies are required to annually provide to the Commission a project status report for the prior year CIP, a five-year CIP detailing how the Measure A funds are to be expended, and an annual certification of maintenance of effort. In July, the Commission approved all of the Measure A Five-Year CIPs with the exception of Norco, which is the subject of this agenda item. The city of Beaumont is currently not a participating agency in WRCOG's TUMF program . Agenda Item 7 1 The required CIP and supporting documentation was received from Norco on August 18; the submittal was prepared based on the five-year Measure A revenue projection for LSR provided to the local agencies by Commission staff.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: The 2012 RTP/SCS was adopted by the SCAG Regional Council on April 5, 2012. This is the first RTP/SCS the SCAG region implemented, which was in response to Senate Bill 375 requiring RTPs to demonstrate reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. SCAG is encouraging the development and programming of projects that have normally not been included in the RTP or Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP), such as active transportation projects and complete streets. The reason being is that most of these projects are funded with local or state funds and are not required to be included in the RTP or FTIP. SCAG is requesting the county transportation commissions in its region to enter into MOU's, or the like, to encourage projects, programs, and planning activities that increase bicycle and pedestrian usage thereby reducing greenhouse emissions and improving public health. Active transportation projects have recently been approved in Riverside County through the Multi-Funding Call for Projects, Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG's) Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) Call for Projects, and the state's Active Transportation Program (ATP) Cycle 1 funding. In addition, the Commission will conduct a call for projects for SB 821 funding next year, which primarily consist of bicycle and sidewalk facilities. All active transportation projects will be included in RTP's and FTIP's in addition to Agenda Item 9 21 highlighting bicycle and pedestrian facilities that are part of larger projects so the public has a more comprehensive understanding of the efforts underway in Riverside County towards meeting the RTP/SCS goals. Staff developed an MOU in consultation with SCAG staff. Staff recommends the Commission approves this MOU. Approval of the MOU itself does not commit the Commission to expend any additional funds. All projects and programs approved for future funding cycles would come to the Commission for approval.

WHEREAS, a regional Sustainable Communities Strategy is a component of the Regional Transportation Plan that specifies how the GHG reduction targets established for a region by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) will be achieved; WHEREAS, on April 4, 2012 the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) Regional Council unanimously approved the region's first RTP/SCS; WHEREAS, the adopted RTP/SCS includes land-use and transportation strategies that will support the region in meeting the established GHG reduction targets of 8% per capita by 2020 and 13% per capita by 2035; WHEREAS, the Air Resources Board on June 4, 2012 accepted the Sustainable Communities Strategy as having met the GHG target; WHEREAS, by virtue of having met the state established GHG target, local governments in the SCAG region may choose to access a streamlined process under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for certain types of qualifying development projects; WHEREAS, the RTP/SCS provides additional co-benefits including reducing land consumption, infrastructure costs, household costs, health incidences as well as improving mobility and creating jobs; WHEREAS, SCAG developed the RTP/SCS in collaboration with RCTC, other County Transportation Commissions, and local governments from the six-county Southern California region through a bottoms-up, collaborative process that engaged a wide range of stakeholder groups, elected officials, special interest groups, and the general public through a series of workshops and public meetings; WHEREAS, the RTP/SCS addresses many challenges including projected growth, changing demographics, climate change adaptation, housing needs, and transportation demands; ,------ WHEREAS, the RTP/SCS includes a land-use strategy and growth forecast that focuses growth in High-Quality Transit Areas and along main streets, downtowns and other appropriate infill locations; shifts development from single-family towards multi-family residential development to reflect recent market trends; and promotes the implementation of Compass Blueprint Demonstration projects and other supportive land use implementation; WHEREAS, the RTP/SCS includes transportation policies and investments that: reflect the investments being made by the County Transportation Commissions through 2035; triple the amount of funding available in the previous RTP to support Active Transportation; emphasize and provide additional resources for transportation demand management strategies and transportation systems management; maintain a focus on efficient goods movement; and establish a financial plan that addresses deferred maintenance and includes new revenue sources and innovative financing techniques to transition our fuel tax-based system to a more direct, user fee approach; WHEREAS, while SCAG develops the RTP/SCS, the land-use and transportation changes within it are largely driven by the actions of local governments and County Transportation Commissions, like RCTC, that program the majority of transportation funds flowing into the region; WHEREAS, it is therefore critical that RCTC be engaged in the implementation of the plan in order for the plan's benefits to be realized, as well as to ensure the region continues to make progress that can be reflected in the 2016 RTP/SCS; WHEREAS, CARB through the AB 32 Cap-and-Trade Program may be providing funding for programs and projects throughout the state that reduce GHG emissions and help implement local climate action plans; WHEREAS, RCTC submitted a letter to SCAG dated February 14, 2012 supporting approval of the RTP/SCS by the April 2012 deadline and has committed staff support in the implementation of the RTP/SCS; WHEREAS, RCTC has demonstrated leadership and strong support for advancing sustainable transportation options in the region through a broad range of actions including: the Western Riverside County Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP), the Coachella Valley Multiple Species Conservation Plan/Natural Community Conservation Plan, and providing local, state and federal funds for transportation projects that meet air quality goals and objectives. WHEREAS, RCTC and SCAG currently collaborate on a broad range of initiatives to advance common transportation objectives, and it is in the interest of both agencies to continue to leverage resources toward achieving the common goals expressed in the RTP/SCS including creating a more sustainable transportation system. Now, therefore, be it resolved by the RCTC that the Executive Director is authorized to initiate and/or continue the following RTP/SCS implementation activities, to be referred to collectively as the RTP/SCS Joint-Work Program: 1. Appoint a representative to the Regional Sustainability Working Group, an effort initiated by the CEOs of County Transportation Commissions and led by SCAG, to actively work on the implementation of the RTP/SCS, document and monitor progress, and develop recommendations for opportunities in the upcoming 2016-2040 RTP/SCS. 2. Seek funding and support legislative initiatives to assist local agencies with planning, programming, and/or capital funds to implement Compass Blueprint projects or other innovative, multimodal approaches that achieve the goals of the RTP/SCS. 3. Support SCAG in developing a Conservation Planning Policy, as recommended in the 2012- 2035 RTP/SCS. This policy is intended to build upon already-established programs that assist with more efficient transportation project delivery, including but not limited to, the Western Riverside County Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP), and the Coachella Valley Multiple Species Conservation Plan/Natural Community Conservation Plan. The policy will explore opportunities to optimize the use of transportation mitigation funds to support natural land restoration, conservation, protection and acquisition, and offers GHG emissions reduction benefits. The deliverables will likely include identification of priority conservation areas and the development of regional mitigation policies or approaches for the 2016 RTP/SCS. 4. Support and participate in the development and implementation of Climate Action Plans in Riverside County. 5. Review Metrolink station area plans and pursue any identified actions to assist in the implementation of Transit Oriented Development (TOD) and First-Last mile strategies (e.g. transit, bicycle, pedestrian). 6. Continue working with public transportation providers in implementing and updating the Riverside County Public Transportation -Annual Countywide Performance Report. 7. Support the development and inclusion of Safe Routes to School (SRTS) strategies into a Countywide Active Transportation Plan in cooperation with WRCOG, CVAG, County of Riverside Public Health Department, and other key stakeholders to increase the number of local communities establishing SRTS efforts. 8. Review options for additional rail service to areas not currently served in Riverside County. 9. Identify ATP projects that meet the goals of the RTP/SCS and work with project sponsors in identifying funding opportunities to implement infrastructure projects to support improved bicycle and pedestrian connectivity including regional transportation corridors such as CV-Link and regional trail systems. 10. Support SCAG in the development and implementation of the Southern California Active Transportation Safety and Encouragement Campaign. 11. Support the RTP/SCS by encouraging local agencies to include bicycle and pedestrian improvements in larger projects as described in complete streets policies.

AGENDA ITEM 10 • • • • • RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: September 22, 2014 TO: Western Riverside County Programs and Projects Committee ~ FROM: Sheldon Peterson, Rail Manager THROUGH: Robert Yates, Multimodal Services Director SUBJECT: 2014 Amendment to the Joint Powers Agreement for the Los Angeles - San Diego -San Luis Obispo Rail Corridor Agency STAFF RECOMMENDATION: This item is for the Committee to: 1} Approve the 2014 Amendment to the Joint Powers Agreement for the Los Angeles - San Diego -San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN} Rail Corridor Agency to ensure the official agency name is correctly stated; and 2} Forward to the Commission for final action. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: The LOSSAN Rail Corridor Agency is a joint powers authority (JPA} created to oversee the intercity passenger rail service in the travel corridor between San Diego and Los Angeles. This agency evolved as rail service that has now been extended to Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo Counties and includes all counties along the Pacific Surfliner Corridor from San Diego to San Luis Obispo County. On May 8, 2013, the Commission approved the 2013 Amendment to the LOSSAN joint powers agreement which included significant changes that reflected the provisions in Senate Bill 1225 (Chapter 802, Statutes of 2012}, which permits the LOSSAN Rail Corridor Agency to assume administrative responsibility for the state-supported Pacific Surfliner intercity passenger rail service. As part of the amendment, the Commission was elevated as a full voting member. The Commission's involvement in the LOSSAN Rail Corridor Agehcy is necessary because of its legal ownership rights regarding passenger rail service between Fullerton and Los Angeles. The Commission obtained these rights in 1992 as part of a negotiation that included commuter rail access throughout the region and the purchase of the San Jacinto Branch Line. Given the Commission's responsibilities and rights, having a seat on the LOSSAN Rail Corridor Agency Board (LOSSAN Board} is certainly appropriate and ensures the Commission a seat at the table for future discussions regarding future commuter rail service. The Commission actively participates on the LOSSAN Board, first as an ex-officio member starting in 2011, then a full voting member in 2013 . Agenda Item 10 27 CLARIFICATION OF MOU LANGUAGE Recently, LOSSAN Rail Corridor Agency legal counsel discovered a discrepancy between the official, historical name of the agency and the name stated on the most recent JPA document approved by all member agencies. The transposition of the words "rail" and "corridor" in the 2013 amendment to the LOSSAN JPA effectively changed the legal name of the LOSSAN Agency from "LOSSAN Rail Corridor Agency" to "LOSSAN Corridor Rail Agency". It appears the name change was an inadvertent mistake; however, the ambiguity in naming created a number of issues that must be resolved, including statutory reporting issues with the state due to the conflicting agency names. In order to be statutorily compliant with reporting requirements and to avoid future ambiguity, the LOSSAN Board voted unanimously at its August 14, 2014 meeting, to direct staff to work with all member agencies to prepare and execute an amendment to the LOSSAN JPA to ensure the official agency name is correctly stated as the Los Angeles -San Diego -San Luis Obispo Rail Corridor Agency throughout the document. Once approval is received from each member agency to amend the LOSSAN JPA, the LOSSAN Board will make similar amendments to the LOSSAN Rail Corridor Agency bylaws.
