CALL TO ORDER The meeting of the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) was called to order at 10:01 a.m. at Beaumont City Hall, Conference Room #2, 550 East Sixth Street, Beaumont, CA 92223. 2. SELF -INTRODUCTIONS Members Present: Others Present: Dave Barakian, City of Palm Springs Greg Butler, City of Temecula Bo Chen, City of Palm Desert Grant Eklund, City of Indio Joe Forgiarini, SunLine Transit Agency Savat Khamphou, Caltrans Prem Kumar, City of Moreno Valley Eric Lewis, City of Moreno Valley Victor Monz, City of Hemet Robert Morin, City of Corona Kahono Oei, City of Banning Gordon Robinson, Riverside Transit Agency Jim Rodkey, City of Blythe Patty Romo, County of Riverside Jim Smith, City of Calimesa Chris Sunde, Cities of Canyon Lake, Perris, and San Jacinto Michael Shoberg, CVAG Patrick Thomas, City of Murrieta Randy Viegas, City of Rancho Mirage Allyn Waggle, CVAG Grace Alvarez, RCTC Jillian Edmiston, RCTC Albert Espinoza, City of Corona Ernie Figueroa, Parsons Shirley Gooding, RCTC Shirley Medina, RCTC Andrea Zureick, RCTC 3. APPROVAL OF MINUTES Minutes approved as submitted. Technical Advisory Committee Meeting March 19, 2012 Page 2 4. PUBLIC COMMENTS There were no public comments. 5. FEDERAL SURFACE TRANSPORTATION REAUTHORIZATION UPDATE Shirley Medina, RCTC, briefly reviewed the latest information on the House and Senate's efforts to produce an authorization bill. The Senate recently passed its version. An amendment to Senator Boxer's MAP-21 was introduced that should help streamline processing for the FTIP. Federal funds will lapse on March 31 unless another continuing resolution for federal funds is passed to extend federal funds beyond March 31. Regarding the House version of the authorization bill, not much has occurred lately. A concern regarding MAP-21 is that it could reduce Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) funds for retrofitting construction equipment. 6. DRAFT 2012 STATE TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM - CTC STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS Ms. Medina said the California Transportation Commission's staff recommendations were recently released and county submittals have been modified to fit the financial constraint criteria that the STIP must adhere to. The majority of projects were proposed for programming in the first three years and not spread evenly over the five year cycle. The I-215, Scott to Nuevo widening, has been in the STIP for some time and RCTC requested $62.6 million in the first year as that project is ready to go to construction this calendar year; however, there was not enough funding to be financially constrained and the CTC recommended only $56 million for construction funding. The I-15/French Valley IC had been programmed for FY 2014/15 and it has been moved to FY 2015/16. The I-10/Jefferson IC project was proposed for programming in FY 2013/14; however, the CTC recommended programming in FY 2015/16. The Perris Valley Line (PVL) project is currently in the STIP and is getting ready to go to construction later this year. 7. PROPOSITION 1B CORRIDOR MOBILITY IMPROVEMENT ACCOUNT — CTC PROGRAMMING OF PROJECT SAVINGS Ms. Medina reported that discussions have been held with the CTC regarding the next round of CMIA programming. Last year there was a lot of project savings from CMIA projects due to the low bid environment and the CTC conducted a call for projects specifically to program those savings. The requirement for the call for projects was that the project had to enhance a current CMIA project. RCTC submitted the I-215 Central Technical Advisory Committee Meeting March 19, 2012 Page 3 Widening Project, Scott to Nuevo. It met the criteria; however, the CTC wanted projects that could deliver as soon as possible. The CTC is now looking at one more round to program CMIA savings, again looking at projects that will enhance a current CMIA project. Discussions have been held with the CTC regarding the I-215 Central Widening Project. The CTC wants to allocate the savings by the June CTC meeting. 8. RCTC PROPOSED PROGRAMMING FOR PROPOSITION 1B STATE LOCAL PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM (SLPP) — FORMULA FUNDS Ms. Medina expects to hear from CTC staff soon regarding the next SLPP competitive cycle. The TUMF program can be used as a match to leverage the state local partnership — a maximum of $1 million. The CTC will most likely send out the information in May or June with applications due in August. SLPP competitive projects will probably be approved by the CTC in October. 9. CALTRANS LOCAL ASSISTANCE REPORT • NEW LABOR COMPLIANCE LAWS, SBX2 9 AND AB 436 • NEW CHECKLIST FOR REQUEST FOR AUTHORIZATION • CYCLE 10 FOR STATE SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOLS PROGRAM Savat Khamphou, Caltrans Local Assistance, announced that Cycle 10 of the Safe Routes to School applications are due March 30 and postmarks will be accepted. Beginning October 1 at Caltrans District 8, E76's that are going to be processed by the district will be sent directly to FHWA. He further announced that resources are being cut and staff is decreasing. Area engineers may be reassigned and it is possible that Local Assistance may be reduced to only five or six people. He asked that agencies copy him on everything that is sent to Local Assistance. Mr. Khamphou provided the following documents and briefly described their use: • Request for Authorization to Proceed with Preliminary Engineering Checklist • Request for Authorization to Proceed with Construction Checklist • Request for Federal Project Number Checklist • Right of Way Certification Checklist • Labor Compliance Information 10. DRAFT FFY 11/12 OBLIGATIONAL AUTHORITY DELIVERY Andrea Zureick, RCTC, said that each April 1 RCTC is required to send an obligation plan to Local Assistance detailing all the projects that RCTC anticipates obligating Technical Advisory Committee Meeting March 19, 2012 Page 4 CMAQ, STP and STIP funds through the end of the fiscal year that ends September 30. She requested that agencies review the draft obligation plan and advise RCTC by March 28, 2012 if projects are missing or if information has changed. 11. SB 821— VOLUNTEERS FOR EVALUATION PANEL Jillian Edmiston, RCTC, reminded the TAC that a call for projects is going out March 20 for SB 821 funds. The due date is May 8, with presentations expected May 15. Allocation recommendations will go to the Commission June 7. She requested three TAC volunteers to sit on the SB821 evaluation committee. She also reminded the TAC that FY 2010/11 claims are due by June 30, which indicates that projects are completed by the time claims are submitted. She asked that if an extension is needed, please let her know by May 1 in order for her to take them to the Commission all at once. 12. MARCH COMMISSION MEETING HIGHLIGHTS Shirley Medina reported that RCTC's budget goals and objectives were adopted. RCTC worked with the cities of Eastvale and Jurupa Valley and the county to remove the I-15/Schleisman Road IC from the TUMF Regional Arterial program since it is being stalled in the environmental process, and substituted the I-15/Limonite project as it is a much more needed improvement that can be delivered much quicker. TUMF funding was approved for a project on Perris Boulevard in Moreno Valley. There was a resolution of necessity for the I-215 Scott to Nuevo project that was approved and can move forward. The Regional Conservation Authority funding was approved. The Commission also approved moving forward with the next round of TIGER discretionary funds. RCTC will submit the 91 CIP for additional TIGER funding. Approval was also given for programming of $2.7 million in federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) funds for continuation of the Regional Rideshare Program in FYs 2012/13 through 2017/18. 13. OTHER BUSINESS Greg Butler, city of Temecula, reported that bids were opened for the French Valley Interchange Project. Five year CIP and maintenance of effort certifications are due May 11. Technical Advisory Committee Meeting March 19, 2012 Page 5 Patrick Thomas, city of Murrieta, announced a new law that went into effect January 1 that allows only 5% retention for the next five years. 14. ADJOURNMENT There being no further business for consideration by the Technical Advisory Committee, the meeting adjourned at approximately 11:12 a.m. Respectfully submitted, Shirley Medin Programming and Planning Manager AGENDA ITEM 5 A presentation will be made but there is no attachment to the agenda for item 5.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: The city of Corona's Foothill Parkway project is included in the Commission's Transportation Uniform Mitigation Fee (TUMF) Regional Arterial program. The project is concluding its right- of-way phase and the city is now requesting construction funding. The TUMF Regional Arterial program identifies a total of $7.2 million available for the construction phase. FY 2011/12 TUMF Regional Arterial funds have been fully programmed with the recent approval of construction funding for Moreno Valley's Perris Boulevard (Cactus Avenue to Perris Valley Storm Drain) project. Earlier this year, City of Corona staff notified Commission staff that the Foothill Parkway project would be ready for construction at the end of the calendar year. Given the lack of TUMF funds available for programming, an agenda item was presented at the April Commission meeting designating Foothill Parkway as a candidate project for SLPP Formula funds. SLPP Formula funds are required to be matched by county half -cent transportation sales tax revenues, or Measure A. Therefore, staff recommends funding the $14 million needed to complete the funding of Foothill Parkway with $7 million of SLPP Formula funds matched with $7 million of MARA funds. To date, MARA revenues total approximately $20 million. The programming of MARA funds would replace the TUMF Regional Arterial funds that were originally intended for the Foothill Parkway construction phase. The construction of the Foothill Parkway will help alleviate traffic congestion from SR-91. As the Commission begins construction on the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project, Foothill Parkway will be even more beneficial as an alternative route during construction of the SR-91 CIP. Therefore, it is essential to maintain the Foothill Parkway's project schedule as an alternative route to SR-91 in addition to generating jobs associated with this major construction project. AGENDA ITEM 7 RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: May 7, 2012 TO: Technical Advisory Committee FROM: Shirley Medina, Programming and Planning Manager SUBJECT: State -Local Partnership Program Formula Funds — Programming STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Receive and file. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: At the March 14, 2012 Commission meeting, the Commission approved the following candidate projects for State -Local Partnership Program (SLPP) funds: • 1-215 Central Widening (Scott Road to Nuevo Road) • SR-91 Corridor Improvement Program • Perris Valley Line • Foothill Parkway four These Western Riverside County projects were approved as candidate projects with the intent of programming the SLPP funding as we know more about the possibility of other funding for these projects, such as Proposition 1 B Corridor Mobility Improvement Account (CMIA) savings on the 1-215 Central project. Staff is proposing the programming of $7 million in SLPP funds for the Foothill Parkway project. Based on the success of the 1-215 Central project receiving CMIA savings, we will know the distribution of the SLPP funds on the remainder of the above Western County projects. The total amount currently available for programming is approximately $42 million. The Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG) has proposed the following projects and dollar amounts for SLPP funds, which will also be matched with Measure A funds on a 50/50 basis: Palm Desert Indio Indio Riverside County Indian Wells La Quinta Monterey Interchange Loop Ramp Varner Road/Jefferson Intersection Improvements Monroe (Ave 49 to 52) Widen, Intersection Improv. Fred Waring, (Adams to Port Maria) Median Widening Hwy 111 (Cook to Washington) Intersection Improv. Hwy 111/Washington Intersection Improvements Total $ 2,800,000 $ 2,250,000 $ 1,375,000 $ 4,000,000 $ 1,550,000 $ 283,000 $12,258,000 In order to program SLPP projects, the environmental phase must be completed and nomination forms must be provided to Commission staff since the Commission is the authorizing agency to submit SLPP Formula projects to the California Transportation Commission (CTC). Once the projects are submitted to the CTC for programming, they will also need two additional CTC actions: 1) Future Consideration of Funding; and 2) Allocation Request for Funding. These two actions can occur at the same meeting. Projects cannot be advertised until the allocation request is approved by CTC. In addition, as of January 1, 2012 all projects that have State bond funds, including all programs under Proposition 1 B, must adhere to the new Compliance Monitoring Unit requirements, which monitors and enforces prevailing wage requirements on public works projects. There is an administrative fee that must be paid to the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR). In the case of Prop 1B projects, the total that DIR may charge for a given project is limited by statute to one -quarter of one percent of the state bond funding provided for a bond -funded project. It is anticipated that an additional $12 million will be available for programming in Fall; however, fiscal year 2012/13 will be the last year of the SLPP bond program. All SLPP Formula allocation requests must be submitted by April 2013 in order to be allocated by June 2013, the CTC deadline for allocations. AGENDA ITEM 8 RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: May 21, 2012 TO: Technical Advisory Committee FROM: Andrea Zureick, Senior Staff Analyst THROUGH: Shirley Medina, Program Manager SUBJECT: --- Federal Fiscal Year 2011/12 Obligation Plan _ STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Receive and File. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Each year, states are allocated federal STP and CMAQ funds that are suballocated to the regions (or counties) based on the specific funding distributions for each fund source. Caltrans requires each region to prepare an obligation plan that identifies each project that is scheduled for obligation in the current fiscal year. This plan provides critical information to RCTC on the need to develop contingency plans, such as loans between regions or project substitution, based on the target amount of federal funds that needs to be obligated during the fiscal year. Likewise, the plan allows Caltrans to monitor the rate of obligations and develop contingency plans for use of any funds that may not be obligated at a statewide level. The expectation is for each region to obligate 100% of its STP and CMAQ allocations or Obligation Authority (OA). Regions have until May 1st of each year to obligate their annual OA target, after which the OA becomes available for use by other regions within the state. If the state as a whole does not use all of the OA, then the unobligated balance will return to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for redistribution to other states that have obligated 100% of the OA. This is an opportunity that allows states to obligate more federal funding than initially received. This is referred to as "August Redistribution". Therefore, while some projects simply can not obligate earlier than the schedule allows because of issues such as environmental or right of way certification requirements, staff encourages agencies to obligate as early as possible. This increases the likelihood that there will be OA available for the project in the current fiscal year and may even bring more OA for Riverside County agencies than originally anticipated. The FFY 2011/12 obligation plan was submitted to Caltrans by the April 1, 2012, deadline. Based on the final plan (attached), more OA is available than is expected to be needed for obligations. Therefore, there is a risk of losing any unobligated balances because of August Redistribution going to other states or even FHWA rescissions of unobligated balances. There have been a couple of fiscal years that Riverside County did not obligate 100% of its OA. In these instances, RCTC "loaned" OA to regions that could obligate above their OA levels. Per Caltrans' OA Management policy, OA that is loaned is protected from being lost to the county as long as the state obligates 100% of the OA. Agencies are encouraged to notify RCTC when projects that are contained in the delivery plan begin to experience delay or if it becomes possible to deliver a future year project earlier. This will allow staff the time necessary to develop contingency plans that ensure federal funds are not lost to the region.
