(SoCalGas); for a combined amount of $17,465,750, plus a contingency amount of $1,746,250 (10 percent), for a total amount not to exceed $19,212,000; 2) Authorize the Executive Director, pursuant to legal counsel review, to execute the agreements on behalf of the Commission; 3) Authorize the Executive Director, or designee, to approve contingency work up to the total authorized amount as may be required for these utility relocation agreements for final engineering and construction; and 4) Forward to the Commission for final action. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Staff continues to work toward timely completion of the SR-91 CIP to widen SR-91 through the city of Corona and extend the 91 Express Lanes. The environmental phase is planned to be completed in November 2012. Project construction, including utility relocations, can begin only after the environmental approval is in place. 1 Agenda Item 7 At its September 14, 2011, meeting, the Commission authorized the Executive Director to execute agreements with the utility owners for preliminary engineering to better define the utility relocation requirements for the SR-91 CIP. This effort resulted in the ability for staff to work directly with the utility owners to refine relocation requirements and relocation duration schedules that were an important element included in the SR-91 CIP design build request for proposal. The preliminary engineering effort has also refined the estimated utility relocation costs, including the Commission’s cost responsibility, needed to move forward with the utility relocation construction agreements. Staff, through its project and construction manager (PCM) and working with utility owners, has identified 99 utility locations potentially impacted by the SR-91 CIP owned by five utility companies: AT&T, Questar, SCE, SoCalGas, and Time Warner Cable (TWC). Staff has developed preliminary relocation plans to minimize the cost and risk of schedule delay due to these utility relocations. Staff has coordinated with each of the utility companies to verify utility locations within the project area. Further, staff and its PCM physically located each potential utility conflict in the field and developed a utility conflict matrix including an estimated cost to relocate each utility. The estimated costs for utility relocations are shown in Table 1. TABLE 1 – Utility Relocation Costs Utility Number of Relocations Estimated Total Costs Estimated Utility Cost Share Estimated RCTC Cost Share SCE 36 $ 18,188,000 $ 5,587,500 $ 12,600,500 AT&T 19 5,935,000 2,967,500 2,967,500 SoCalGas 21 1,681,500 1,054,750 626,750 Questar 3 1,271,000 0 1,271,000 TWC 20 476,000 476,000 0 TOTAL 99 $ 27,551,500 $ 10,085,750 $ 17,465,750 Staff is seeking to execute agreements with the four utility companies in Table 1 where the Commission has a responsible share of the cost. TWC’s utility lines exist by franchise agreement so 100 percent of the relocation cost is TWC’s responsibility and no agreement is required. 2 Agenda Item 7 Financial Information In Fiscal Year Budget: Yes N/A Year: FY 2012/13 FY 2013/14+ Amount: $2,500,000 $16,712,000 Source of Funds: 2009 Measure A Western County Highway, Commercial Paper Proceeds Budget Adjustment: No N/A GLA No.: 003028 81602 00000 0000 262 31 81601 Fiscal Procedures Approved: Date: 10/16/2012 3 AGENDA ITEM 8 Agenda Item 8 RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: October 22, 2012 TO: Western Riverside County Programs and Projects Committee FROM: David Thomas, Toll Project Manager THROUGH: Michael Blomquist, Toll Program Director SUBJECT: Agreement with Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway Company for the Relocation of the Existing Porphyry Yard Tracks Required for the Construction of the State Route 91 Corridor Improvement Project STAFF RECOMMENDATION: This item is for the Committee to: 1) Approve Agreement No. 13-31-038-00 to Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway Company (BNSF) for the relocation of the existing BNSF Porphyry Yard tracks required for the construction of the State Route 91 Corridor Improvement Project (SR-91 CIP) in the amount of $4,921,300, plus a contingency amount of $492,200 (10 percent), for a total amount not to exceed $5,413,500; 2) Authorize the Chair or the Executive Director, pursuant to legal counsel review, to execute the agreement on behalf of the Commission; 3) Authorize the Executive Director, or designee, to approve contingency work up to the total amount not to exceed as may be required for the work associated with the relocation of the existing Porphyry Yard tracks; and 4) Forward to the Commission for final action. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Over the past five years, staff and its consultants have been working on the development of preliminary engineering plans to widen SR-91 through Corona and extend the 91 Express Lanes into Riverside County. During that time period, it was identified that all preliminary design alternatives developed would have potential impacts to the existing BNSF tracks within the project area. Staff met with BNSF to develop a plan to mitigate for the potential project impacts. Currently, the preliminary engineering and environmental phase is nearing completion, and the Commission is procuring a design builder for the project necessitating the need to move forward with certain mitigations for the project impacts to BNSF. One project impact is a conflict between the construction of 4 Agenda Item 8 new bridges and the location of the existing BNSF Prophyry Yard tracks adjacent to the 15/91 interchange. Staff studied alternative bridge types for this location that would reduce impacts to BNSF facilities but concluded that the most cost effective solution is to temporarily relocate the BNSF tracks during construction. The estimated cost for BNSF to relocate its tracks is $4,921,300. BNSF estimated it will take approximately nine months to procure the materials and relocate the tracks from the date it is given a notice to proceed by the Commission. Therefore, this track relocation work needs to proceed to assure this conflict is eliminated prior to the start of construction of the SR-91 CIP.

RCTC agrees that BNSF's failure to complete the railroad work in accordance with a construction schedule due to inclement weather or unforeseen railroad emergencies will not constitute a breach of this Agreement by BNSF and will not subject BNSF to any liability. Regardless of the requirements of the construction schedule, BNSF reserves the right to reallocate the labor forces assigned to complete the railroad work in the event of an emergency to provide for the immediate restoration of railroad operations (BNSF or its related railroads) or to protect persons or property on or near any BNSF owned property. BNSF will not be liable for any additional costs or expenses resulting from any such reallocation of its labor forces. The parties mutually agree that any reallocation of labor forces by BNSF pursuant to this provision and any direct or indirect consequences or costs resulting from any such reallocation will not constitute a breach of this Agreement by BNSF. 4. The parties mutually agree that no construction activities for the Project that would interfere with operations of the Rail Corridor will be permitted during the fourth quarter of each calendar year. 5. BNSF shall have the right to request any RCTC employee who enters BNSF's Rail Corridor and because of their incompetence, neglect of duty, unsafe conduct or misconduct and/or they adversely affected BNSF’s operations or facilities, be removed from the Rail Corridor. In the event RCTC elects not to honor such request, BNSF may stop work within its Rail Corridor until the matter has been fully resolved to BNSF’s satisfaction. Should BNSF request and RCTC employee to leave the Rail Corridor RCTC will indemnify BNSF against any claims arising from such removal. 6. RCTC’s employees, agents, contractors, representatives and invitees shall wear Personal Protective Equipment ("PPE") when on the BNSF's Rail Corridor during construction of the Project or performing subsequent maintenance after completion of construction.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: As part of the right of way acquisition phase for the SR-91 CIP, a relocation plan has been prepared in connection with the right of way activities to commence upon completion of the environmental phase. The State Route 91 Corridor Improvement Project Relocation Plan (Relocation Plan) provides the Commission with information regarding the potential impact of the project on the affected residential and non-residential occupants, and responds to each as to their eligibility for benefits. State statutes require that relocation assistance programs provide for the fair, uniform, and equitable treatment of all affected persons. The regulations further require that all eligible persons be adequately informed of the assistance, benefits, policies, practices and procedures, including grievance procedures of the relocation assistance program. The Relocation Plan sets forth policies and procedures necessary to conform to statues and regulations established by California Government Code Section 7260 and California Code of Regulations Title 25, Division 1, Chapter 6 (Guidelines); the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970, as amended (Uniform Act); the implementing federal relocation and acquisition guidelines found at 49 CFR Part 24; and the Commission’s adopted right of way policies and procedures. 16 Agenda Item 9 The Relocation Plan includes a description of the project’s location and specific sites, an assessment of the relocation needs of the occupants subject to displacement, a study of available replacement housing sites in close proximity to the project, and an overview of the proposed relocation assistance program. Assessment of Relocation Needs The proposed project would impact 131 residential dwellings, 61 non-residential entities, and 48 owners of rental property. In addition, there will be some storage units impacted by the proposed project but the number of units is unknown at this time. Attempts were made to personally interview all residential and non-residential entities. Some did not respond to requests for an interview. Individuals from 92 percent of the residential dwelling units were interviewed, and representatives from 79 percent of the non-residential occupants were interviewed. No eligible person shall be required to move from their dwelling unless comparable replacement dwellings are available to them. Housing site availability is summarized in the Relocation Plan. Based on the replacement needs of the residential occupants, survey results indicate that there is a sufficient availability of housing units to provide comparable replacement housing. Survey results also indicate that there are sufficient suitable replacement units for the non-residential entities. Relocation Assistance Program The Relocation Plan provides a comprehensive overview of the Commission’s Relocation Assistance Program, which follows applicable state and federal regulations. Components of the program include relocation advisory services, an explanation of benefits available for residential and commercial occupants and for both owner occupied and tenant-occupied units, and general information on payment of relocation benefits. Specific eligibility requirements and benefit plans will be detailed on an individual basis with the displacees. Pursuant to California Code of Regulations, Section 6038, a general notice has been provided to each occupant of affected properties 30 days prior to submission to the Commission for adoption. The relocation benefit payments to eligible occupants listed in this Relocation Plan are estimated to amount to $4,510,000, which includes a 10 percent contingency. 17 Agenda Item 9 Financial Information In Fiscal Year Budget: Yes N/A Year: FY 2012/13 FY 2013/14+ Amount: $2,000,000 $2,510,000 Source of Funds: 2009 Western County Measure A and debt proceeds Budget Adjustment: No N/A GL/Project Accounting No.: 003028 81401 262 31 81401 Fiscal Procedures Approved: Date: 10/10/2012 Attachment: State Route 91 Corridor Improvement Project Relocation Plan 18 Prepared for: Riverside County Transportation Commission Prepared by: Overland, Pacific & Cutler, Inc. 2280 Market Street, Suite 200 Riverside, CA 92501 (951) 683-2353 September 2012 State Route 91 Corridor Improvement Project Relocation Plan for Occupants 19 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project ii Contents Introduction ........................................................................................................................................................ 1 I.

The Project spans 14 miles on SR-91 from Anaheim and Yorba Linda into Riverside; and 6 miles on Interstate 15 (I-15) from the Hidden Valley Parkway interchange in Corona and Norco to the Cajalco Road interchange in Corona (see Exhibit A, Project Aerial Map). The RCTC, in partnership with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), intends to address existing and projected deficiencies regarding mobility, access, goods movement, and freeway capacity within the project segments of SR-91 (between State Route 241 [SR-241] and Pierce Street) and I-15 (between Cajalco Road and Hidden Valley Parkway). The proposed Project currently involves the acquisition of 267 parcels made up of 75 full acquisitions and 192 partial acquisitions. The property acquisition that will take place for the proposed Project will potentially cause the displacement of 131 residential households, consisting of 393 individuals, and 61 business occupants. The needs and characteristics of the displacee population, available relocation resources and the RCTC’s program to provide assistance to each affected residential and business occupant are the general subjects of this Relocation Plan (Plan). SR-91 originates in southern Los Angeles County at the Harbor Freeway (I-110), passes through northern Orange County, and terminates at the State Route 60 (SR-60)/91/Interstate 215 (I-215) interchange in the City and County of Riverside. The existing freeway within the project vicinity was constructed in the mid-1960s, during the same period as most of the interstate highway system in the area. SR-91 is the only significant highway transportation facility connecting Orange County and Riverside County. In addition to its importance as a commuter route, it is heavily used for goods movement from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to inland destinations. The design of major transportation improvements such as the proposed SR-91 CIP is a complex process. As a result, projects of this magnitude often are divided into segments for conceptual design to allow different engineering teams to focus on shorter segments of proposed improvements while ensuring that the designs of all the segments are consistent and compatible with each other. For the conceptual design and engineering for the SR-91 CIP Build Alternatives, the proposed Project was divided into three segments. Segment 1 extends on SR-91 from its interchange with SR-241 in Orange County to Smith Avenue in the City of Corona in Riverside County; it also includes an advance signage area extending west from the SR-91/SR-241 interchange to Weir Canyon Road. Advanced signage is signage advising commuters that they are about to enter or exit a toll road. Within the identified advanced signage areas, there will not be any acquisition or relocation activities involved. Segment 2 extends on SR-91 east of Smith Avenue, across I-15, into the City of Riverside, terminating at Pierce Street; it also includes an advance signage area extending east from Pierce 24 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 2 Street to Tyler Street. As with Segment 1, there will not be any acquisition or relocation activities within the advanced signage area. Segment 3 extends from the Hidden Valley Parkway interchange in the Cities of Corona and Norco, south to the Cajalco Road interchange in the City of Corona; it also includes advanced signage areas extending north from Hidden Valley Parkway to Fifth Street and south from Cajalco Road to Weirick Road. Figure 1, below, depicts the Relocation Plan limits. Figure 1: Relocation Plan Limits Source: State Route 91 Corridor Improvement Project Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement, accessed August 30, 2012. This Plan addresses Segment 1 and a portion of Segment 2 of the proposed Project. Segments 2 and 3 will culminate in the year 2035 and the properties within these segments will be acquired and relocated, if necessary, leading up to that time. Funding for the Project comes from federal and local sources. A federal loan totaling $444 million is expected to comprise approximately one-third of the proposed Project’s $1.3 billion cost. This loan will be repaid with funds collected from toll revenue. Measure A, the half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements in Riverside County, will fund most of the balance of the proposed Project’s cost.1 This Plan conforms to the requirements of the California Relocation Assistance Law, Government Code §7260, et seq. (Law), the Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Guidelines, California Code of Regulations, Title 25, Division 1, Chapter 6 (Guidelines), the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970, as amended (URA), the implementing federal relocation and acquisition guidelines found at 49 CFR Part 24, and the RCTC’s adopted right-of-way policies and procedures. 1 Riverside County Transportation Commission, State Route 91 Corridor Improvement Project Web Site: http://sr91project.info/funding.php, accessed August 30, 2012. 25 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 3 The proposed Project is anticipated to impact two mobile home parks, one of which will be acquired in full. As a result, a report of the impact of the conversion, closure or cessation of use upon the displaced persons is required. This report will be prepared under separate cover in accordance with California Government Code §65863.7 and §65863.8, and California Civil Code §798.56. Implementation of the proposed Project rests with the RCTC, with oversight from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Upon completion of this Plan, it will be submitted to the RCTC for approval. This Plan was written by Overland, Pacific & Cutler, Inc. (OPC), a professional consulting firm specializing in public agency acquisition and relocation projects. The Plan is organized in five sections: 1. A description of the proposed Project’s regional location and specific site setting (SECTION I); 2. An assessment of the relocation needs of residential and businesses subject to displacement as a result of the proposed Project (SECTION II); 3. An assessment of available comparable replacement sites for the residential occupant and available commercial replacement sites in proximity to the proposed Project (SECTION III); 4. A review of the relocation assistance program to be offered to the displaced residential and business occupants (SECTION IV); and 5. Necessary administrative provisions (SECTION V). 26 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 4 I. Project Area Description A. Regional Location The proposed SR-91 CIP is generally located in the central area of the City of Corona, in the northwestern portion of Riverside County, between the cities of Anaheim and Riverside. The Project is immediately accessible from the Cities of Anaheim, Corona, Norco, Riverside, and Yorba Linda from SR-91, SR-241, and I-15. Refer to Figure 2: Regional Project Location. Figure 2: Regional Location Source: State Route 91 Corridor Improvement Project Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement, accessed August 30, 2012. B. Project Location The proposed project site is located alongside SR-91, spanning from the SR-91/SR-241 interchange in the Cities of Anaheim and Yorba Linda to Pierce Street in the City of Riverside and on I-15 from the Hidden Valley Parkway interchange in the Cities of Corona and Norco to the Cajalco Road interchange in the City of Corona. Specific properties subject to this relocation plan are located along SR-91 in the City of Corona and County of Riverside. Refer to Figure 3: Project Location. 27 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 5 Figure 3: Project Location Source: State Route 91 Corridor Improvement Project Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement, accessed August 30, 2012. C. General Demographic and Housing Characteristics According to the 2010 United States (U.S.) Census, the population of the City of Corona is 152,374. Corresponding Census data concerning the housing mix is shown in Table 1 and Table 2, below. Demographics for the City of Corona are provided because the majority of the proposed Project impacts are within the City of Corona. A small portion of the proposed Project lies within unincorporated County of Riverside. Including the demographics of unincorporated County of Riverside would misrepresent the demographics of occupants of the proposed Project. Therefore the demographics of unincorporated Riverside County were not included in this Plan.

Assessment of Relocation Needs A. Survey Methods To obtain necessary information for the preparation of this Plan, personal interviews among potentially affected residents and business operators were conducted. As part of the early acquisition activities, OPC contacted a small number of the occupants for the identified parcels in November 2010. Additional interviews were conducted with the remaining residents and businesses in August and September, 2012. Interviewers were successful in obtaining survey responses from 120 of 131 occupied residential dwellings (92%) and 48 of 61 occupied businesses (79%). The majority of interviews were conducted on-site in homes and places of business in either English or Spanish, as appropriate. Follow up attempts to reach occupants were made through the combination of personal visits and telephone. Inquiries made of residential occupants concerned household size and composition, income, monthly rent obligation, length and type of occupancy, ethnicity, home language, disabilities/health problems, and replacement housing preferences. Survey questions of business operators concerned the nature of the business, leasehold circumstances, annual revenues, description and size of current operations, special facility requirements, and area preferences with respect to possible replacement locations. The descriptive data in this Plan concerning residents and commercial uses are based solely on anecdotal responses. No attempt was made to verify income or other information provided by residents or business owners. Samples of the residential and business interview forms used in the interview process are presented as Exhibits B and C of this report. B. Field Survey Data – Residential The proposed Project includes 393 individuals who will require relocation. As stated above in Section II.A., survey information was obtained from 120 of 131 occupied residential households (92%). 1. Housing Mix The proposed Project area includes a variety of housing types, including single family homes, multi-family homes and mobile homes. Of the 120 respondent households, 58 respondent households reside in either single family or multi-family housing; one resides in a studio unit, five reside in a one-bedroom unit, 31 reside in a two-bedroom unit, 15 reside in a three-bedroom unit, five reside in a four-bedroom unit and one household resides in a five-bedroom unit. The housing mix consists of 29 single family residences and seven apartment complexes. In addition, there are 71 mobile homes, of which 17 are tenant-occupied and 45 are owner- occupied. Information was not obtained from eight households despite several attempts, and one home was vacant at the time of the survey. Table 3 below shows current housing in the proposed project area by bedroom size. 30 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 8 Table 3: Proposed Project Area Housing – Dwelling Bedroom Sizes (58 respondents) # of Bedrooms Studio One Two Three Four Five # of Units –Tenants 1 3 30 7 1 - # of Units – Owners - 2 1 8 4 1 Total Units 1 5 31 15 5 1 Of the 62 respondent households, respondents reside in two-, three-, or four-bedroom households.

Space Pad/Rent Owners of mobile homes pay service or space pad rents to the mobile home parks. Among 45 respondent mobile home owner-occupants, the average amount paid for pad rent to the mobile home park owner is $720, with rents ranging from $575 to $1,404. 3. Occupancy/Overcrowding There is a total known proposed Project population of 393 individuals, consisting of 282 adults and 111 minors. The average household size is 3 persons per dwelling unit. The distribution of household sizes within the proposed Project area is provided in Table 6 below. Table 6: Current Household Size Occupants (120 households) # in Household # Households – Tenants # Households – Owners One 8 20 Two 10 18 Three 11 6 Four 12 3 Five 7 6 Six 5 5 Seven 2 2 Eight 1 2 Nine 1 - Ten 1 - The standard for housing density adopted by RCTC allows two persons per bedroom and one person in a common living area. RCTC adheres to the state building code occupancy standard based on the square footage of the dwelling for households larger than eight members. Based on these criteria as compared to available tenant data, there appear to be nine overcrowded units among the subject tenant residential properties. Replacement housing referrals to the occupants of these dwellings will reflect the need for larger accommodations to comply with the URA, State and City of Corona code requirements. 4. Replacement Housing Needs Replacement housing needs, as expressed in this Plan, are defined by the total number of required replacement units and the distribution of those units by bedroom size. The projected number of required units by bedroom size is calculated by comparing survey data relative to household size with the RCTC’s replacement housing occupancy standards. These standards, generally, allow for up to three persons in a one-bedroom unit, five persons in a two-bedroom unit, and seven persons in a three-bedroom unit. Any households consisting of more than eight members will require a four-bedroom replacement unit based on the respective size of that unit per the state building code. For mobile homes, coach age and condition along with availability of space in another reasonably comparable mobile home park will determine whether any of the owner-occupied 32 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 10 units can be relocated. Those owner-occupant households which occupy units that cannot be relocated will be eligible for payments to replace their residence and assist with any increase in space rent at the new facility. For the purpose of computing overall replacement housing needs and preparing the relocation assistance budget, it is assumed in this Plan that owner and tenant replacement housing needs will be met by reliance on available open market units and not through the relocation of currently occupied coaches. The proposed Project’s replacement housing requirements are summarized below in Table 7, Table 8, and Table 9.

Income Income information was provided by 101 households. According to income standards for the County of Riverside (Exhibit D) adjusted for family size as published by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), 56 proposed Project households qualify as extremely low income (30% or less of median), 22 as very low income (31%-50% of median), 8 as low income (51%-80% of median), 7 as median income (81%-120% of median) and 8 as moderate income (over 120% of median). Table 10 below outlines this information. The range of reported annual household income among the 102 respondents was $4,200 to $168,000. 33 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 11 Table 10: Income Levels of Residential Housing (101 respondents)3 Extremely Low Very Low Low Median Moderate 56 22 8 7 8 Source: Department of Housing and Community Development, State Income Limits for 2012 6. Ethnicity/Language Ethnicity among the proposed Project area households is shown below in Table 11.

Senior/Disabled Households There are 48 households with at least one senior individual (62 years or older) in the proposed Project area and 9 households with reported physical and/or psychological disabilities. Individuals who reported disabilities included a variety of physical mobility impairments, psychological and other physical health issues. Care will be taken to meet the special needs of each household, particularly as these needs involve physical access to accommodations. Foreknowledge of individual health issues will enable relocation staff to more effectively manage the relocation process. In all cases involving physical or mental impairments, extra efforts will be made to provide close individual case monitoring. 8. Preferred Relocation Areas The majority of residents who were surveyed expressed a preference to remain in the community in order to maintain current school enrollment, access to employment, medical facilities, recreational resources and public transportation. Several residents indicated a desire to move, mentioning Corona, Norco, Riverside, Moreno Valley, Borrego Springs, Pomona and Hemet as possible alternatives. Some occupants expressed openness as far as location is 3 This number reflects the number of displacees who provided income verification. 34 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 12 concerned and indicated they may consider moving out of state. Most indicated a preference to remain in an area close to their present dwelling. C. Field Survey Data – Nonresidential There are 61 non-residential entities potentially affected by the proposed Project. Survey information was obtained from 48 of the non-residential occupants. Owner-occupied businesses, which own their own facilities, account for 4 of the businesses, while the remaining are renting or leasing their premises. The following information in Table 12 reflects information gathered from personal interviews as well as observations made in the field. Business type, estimated square footage, monthly rent and number of employees are outlined below.

These owners lease their space within the proposed Project boundaries to residents and businesses occupying the area. These off-site owners are considered businesses and may be eligible to receive assistance and benefits for expenses actually incurred in reestablishing their business at a replacement property site, in the amount not to exceed $10,000. These and other benefits are outlined in Section IV.E. 36 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 14 Table 13 below identifies the quantity and types of properties potentially affected by the proposed Project. Table 13: Non-Occupant Owners Leasing Space to Others Type Number Mobile Home Park 19 Residential 17 Commercial 12 Total 48 Additionally, there may be individual mobile home owners currently renting their units that are unidentified at the time of preparation of this Plan, but would qualify for this benefit as well. Partial acquisitions of four self-storage facilities are planned and is estimated approximately 200 units will be impacted by the proposed Project. Research was conducted in an effort to find available replacement sites for the impacted storage unit facilities. The research conducted has confirmed that there are adequate replacement sites for the impacted storage unit facilities. At this time, the extent of the impacts is unknown to the storage unit facilities, or the number of units that will require personal property to be relocated. Nevertheless, if the owner of personal property in a storage unit must move that personal property, relocation assistance and benefits defined in the URA will be afforded to them. 37 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 15 III. Relocation Resources No eligible person shall be required to move from their dwelling unless comparable replacement dwellings are available to such persons. The purpose of this section is to identify if sufficient comparable replacement housing resources exist for all potential residential displacees. Additionally, while available replacement locations are not required for non- residential occupants to move, a survey of available replacement commercial sites have been searched in order to determine what sites may be available to the non-residential occupants in order to determine what impacts, if any, there may be due to a lack of available replacement sites. The RCTC is committed to making every effort to satisfactorily relocate all displaced occupants. Through the advanced acquisition program, 13 residential households and five businesses have vacated the properties in the proposed Project area, but have been included in this plan. A. Methodology To determine the availability of residential and commercial sites prior to the displacement of occupants from the proposed Project area, resources were researched through the following sources: • Internet sources (MLS listings, Loopnet, CoStar, Craigslist); • Canvassing the proposed Project area for properties available for lease and or for sale; • Telephone and field contact with commercial brokerages serving the area; • Classified rental listings from The Press-Enterprise and For Rent publications, and; • Contacts with real estate/property management companies serving the community. B. Replacement Housing/Commercial Site Availability 1. Residential Rental Housing A housing resource survey was conducted to determine the availability of replacement housing within the City sufficient to meet the needs of displaced homeowners within the proposed Project. Although the proposed project limits include certain areas in Riverside County, there are no residential displacements anticipated to occur within the County limits. The only displacements that will be occurring within the County include nonresidential. The rental replacement housing survey considered both conventional housing and mobile homes. This data is summarized in Tables 14 and 15, below. The conventional housing survey, Table 14, identified a total of 110 available one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom conventional housing units for rent. The use of conventional replacement housing may be necessary since the availability of mobile homes for rent is limited. The conventional housing includes one- and two- bedroom apartments and single-family dwellings with three or four bedrooms. The individual figures for number of units found by bedroom size are presented in the table alongside the number of units needed (shown in parenthesis) to meet replacement obligations. 38 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 16 Table 14: Availability and Cost of Replacement Rental Housing (conventional) Dwelling Type One Two Three Four Number Found (Number Needed) 9 (3) 39 (25) 30 (11) 32 (3) Rent Range $695 – 1,350 $700 – 1,995 $1,450 – 2,595 $1,745 – 2,595 Median Rent $930 $1,100 $1,795 $2,140 Sources: MLS and www.craigslist.com, accessed August and September, 2012 The rent range shown in the table above indicates actual rents in the market place are among the figures used to make benefit and budget projections for this Plan. The variances in the rent range are a result of age, condition, size and location. The median rent amounts shown in the table are among the figures used to make benefit and budget projections for the Plan. These amounts are, naturally, subject to change according to the market rates prevailing at the time of displacement. The survey of mobile homes, Table 15, identified 30 one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom mobile home units for rent. The quantity of mobile homes for rent is sufficient to meet the needs of all potentially displaced mobile home owners and tenants, as shown by the number of units found.

Mobile Homes, Single Family Residences, and Duplexes/Triplexes/Fourplexes for Sale Housing The resource survey identified 56 two-bedroom mobile homes, ranging in price from $8,500 to $160,000 with a median price of $28,500; 27 three-bedroom mobile homes were found ranging in price from $15,000 to $125,000 with a median price of $40,000; and seven four-bedroom mobile homes ranging from $55,000 to $139,000 with a median price of $67,000. There are no one-bedroom mobile home units available for sale as of the date of this report.

Loss of Goodwill Goodwill consists of the benefits that accrue to a business as a result of its location; reputation for dependability, skill or quality; and, any other circumstances resulting in probable retention of old, or acquisition of new patronage. Claims for loss of goodwill are not compensable under the statutory provisions related to relocation assistance. Where claims are anticipated, State law (California Code of Civil Procedure §1263.510) requires business owners to prove all of the following: (1) The loss is caused by the taking of the property; (2) The loss cannot reasonably be prevented by relocation of the business, or by taking steps and adopting procedures that a reasonably prudent person would take to preserve the goodwill; and, (3) The compensation for the loss has not been included as a relocation payment, or duplicated in compensation otherwise awarded to the owner. 5. Summary Considering the above described availability of replacement housing resources that were identified, it appears as though there are more than adequate replacement resources for the residential occupants, both tenants and owner-occupants. Although adequate replacement resources exist, based on surveyed results of rental and purchase opportunities and the current rent and likely values of existing dwellings, occupants will likely have increases in monthly rents and/or higher purchase costs. These possible increases, if any, will be met through the RCTC’s obligation under the relocation regulations, including the Last Resort Housing (LRH) requirements (see Section IV.G). For owner-occupants, particularly the more elderly and physically challenged, relocation to a senior facility may well be considered as an option. Some tenants, as suggested by their survey responses, may consider purchasing rather than re-renting new accommodations. Individual preferences will be accounted for once the relocation process has begun and a relocation consultant has had the opportunity to speak personally with each resident. Therefore, with possible benefit payments exceeding statutory amounts through LRH obligations, the relocation activities are not anticipated to create any special housing considera- tions. With LRH benefit payments, the proposed Project will meet comparable replacement dwelling requirements. Furthermore, as a result of there being more than 15 households anticipated to be displaced if the proposed Project were to move forward, the RCTC will submit this Plan and subsequent resource surveys for review to the City local housing, development and planning agencies to be compared to other existing information on housing available. Regarding non-residential resources, the data collected presents a multitude of business sites that are currently available for sale and lease to commercial occupants. Therefore, it is believed adequate replacement sites for non-residential occupants exist, however some business uses may require conformance with local conditional use permits and/or zoning requirements. 41 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 19 C. Related Issues 1. Concurrent Residential Displacement The City of Corona’s Auto Center Drive Grade Separation Project is scheduled to begin construction in January 2013. This project will not result in any displacements. The project consists of constructing a grade separation at the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) railroad crossing at Auto Center Drive in Corona.4 Therefore, this proposed Project will not compete or adversely affect the availability of comparable replacement resources. There are no other known current public projects under way in the City of Corona or adjacent communities which, presently, would compete with the proposed Project for needed housing resources. The RCTC does intend to monitor the activity of local agencies; however, along with the capacity of the housing market throughout the displacement phase of the proposed Project. No residential displacee will be required to move without both adequate notice and access to available affordable decent, safe and sanitary housing. 2. Language Relocation assistance information will be provided in English or the language used by the residents and business owners. All written communication will be provided in the language needed, or an interpreter will be provided in order to assure that all displacees obtain a complete understanding of the relocation program and available benefits. 3. Temporary Relocation The Project is not anticipated to cause any temporary displacement. 4 City of Corona Web Site: http://discovercorona.com/City-Departments/Public-Works/Construction-Projects.aspx, accessed August 30, 2012. 42 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 20 IV. The Relocation Program The RCTC’s Relocation Program is designed to minimize hardship, be responsive to unique project circumstances, maintains personal contact with all affected individuals, consistently applying all regulatory criteria to formulate eligibility and benefit determinations, and conforms to all applicable requirements. The RCTC has retained Overland, Pacific & Cutler, Inc. (OPC) to administer the Relocation Program. OPC has worked on more than 2,500 public agency acquisition and relocation projects over the past 30 years. Additionally, OPC has an extensive resume of redevelopment and other Public Works projects undertaken in the City of Corona and other Riverside County communities. Experienced RCTC staff will monitor the performance of OPC and be responsible to approve or disapprove OPC recommendations concerning eligibility and benefit determina- tions and interpretations of RCTC policy. The Relocation Program consists of two principal constituents: Advisory Assistance and Financial Assistance. A. Program Assurances, Standards and Objectives The RCTC will provide the displaced residential and business occupants with the assistance, rights and benefits required under federal and or state relocation law and the RCTC’s policies and procedures. The relocation program will provide both advisory and financial assistance. Every effort will be made to facilitate relocation arrangements and minimize hardship for displacees. The program objectives will be as follows: 1. To fully inform eligible proposed Project displacees of the nature of, and procedures for, obtaining relocation assistance and benefits; 2. To determine the needs of each displacee eligible for assistance; 3. To provide continuously updated referrals to potential replacement sites within a reasonable time prior to displacement and assure that no occupant is required to move without a minimum of 90 days written notice to vacate; 4. To provide assistance that does not result in different or separate treatment due to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status or other arbitrary circumstances; 5. To supply information concerning federal programs and other governmental programs providing assistance to displaced persons; 6. To assist each eligible occupant to complete applications for benefits; 7. To make relocation benefit payments in accordance with the appropriate guidelines; 8. To inform all persons subject to displacement of RCTC policies with regard to eviction and property management; and 9. To establish and maintain a formal grievance procedure for use by displaced persons seeking administrative review of RCTC decisions with respect to relocation assistance. 43 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 21 B. Relocation Advisory Assistance OPC staff is available to assist the permanently displaced households and businesses with questions or concerns about relocation and/or assistance in relocating. Relocation staff is located at 2280 Market Street, Suite 200, Riverside, CA 92501, with office hours from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and can be contacted at (951) 683-2353. A comprehensive relocation program, with technical and advisory assistance, will be provided to assist all persons being displaced as a consequence of the proposed Project. Personal contact will be maintained with all individuals until the relocation process has been completed. Overland, Pacific & Cutler, Inc. (OPC) has been retained by the RCTC to assist in the administration of its relocation program. OPC will work closely with the RCTC staff. The RCTC staff will provide final approvals, or otherwise, of all OPC recommendations. Every reasonable effort will be made to ensure that the relocation of residents and businesses occurs with a minimum of delay and hardship. The following specific services will be provided: 1. The residents and businesses located in the proposed Project area will be personally interviewed to gather information appropriate to the determination of needs and preferences regarding replacement of existing facilities; 2. A printed Informational Brochure (Exhibits H and I) will be provided in English or the displacee’s language should that be subsequently deemed necessary. Signed acknowledgements will be obtained to verify receipt of this material; 3. Maintain a database of available residential units for sale and commercial space and distribute replacement site referrals for the duration of the proposed Project; 4. Assistance will be offered to displacees in connection with arrangements for the purchase of real property, if applicable, obtaining required business permits or licenses, the filing of claim forms to request relocation benefits from the RCTC and to obtain services from other public agencies; 5. Special assistance in the form of referrals to governmental and non-governmental agencies will be made, if requested; 6. Assist eligible displacees with the preparation and submission of relocation assistance claims; 7. Make benefit determinations and payments in accordance with applicable law and RCTC policy; 8. Assure that displacees are not required to move without a minimum of 90 days written notice to vacate; 9. Inform all persons subject to displacement of RCTC policies with regard to eviction and property management; 44 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 22 10. Establish and maintain a formal grievance procedure for use by displaced persons seeking administrative review of RCTC decisions with respect to relocation assistance; and 11. Provide assistance that does not result in different or separate treatment due to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status or other arbitrary circumstances. C. Relocation Benefits – Residential Specific eligibility requirements and benefit plans will be detailed on an individual basis with displacees. In the course of personal interviews and follow-up visits, the household will be counseled as to available options and the consequences of any choice with respect to financial assistance. Relocation benefits will be provided in accordance with the provisions of the federal and state relocation law and regulations. Benefits will be paid to eligible displaced persons upon submission of required claim forms and documentation in accordance with RCTC normal administrative procedures. 1. Residential Moving Expense Payments All residential occupants that will be relocated will be eligible to receive a payment for moving expenses. Moving expense payments will be made based on the actual cost of a professional move or a fixed payment based on a room-count schedule. a. Actual Cost (Professional Move) The displacee may elect to retain the services of a licensed professional mover, in which case the RCTC will pay for the actual cost of the moving services, based on the lower of at least two acceptable bids (the RCTC may, at its discretion, solicit competitive bids to determine the lowest, reasonable move cost). After the move is complete, the displacee may pay the mover directly and seek reimbursement from the RCTC or request a direct payment from the RCTC to the mover. In addition to the cost of the actual move, one-time expenses associated with utility reconnections (i.e., gas, water, electricity, telephone, cable) will be eligible for reimbursement. Transportation costs will be limited to a distance of 50 miles, unless otherwise authorized by the RCTC. b. Fixed Payment (based on Room Count Schedule) An occupant may elect to receive a fixed payment for moving expenses that is based on the number of rooms occupied in the displacement dwelling. In this case, the person to be relocated takes full responsibility for the move. The fixed payment includes all utility connections as described in (a), above. At a minimum, the fixed schedule payment for single occupancy efficiency units, furnished with the tenants own personal property, is $450, which includes all utility connections at the 45 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 23 replacement location. The current schedule for fixed moving payments is provided below in Table 19. Table 19: Schedule of Fixed Moving Payments Unfurnished Dwelling Room Count 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Each Additional Amount $685 $880 $1,100 $1,295 $1,570 $1,815 $2,090 $2,365 $250 Furnished Dwelling Room Count 1 Each Additional Amount $450 $85 Source: Federal Highway Administration (effective May 23, 2012) c. Moves from a Mobile Home A displaced person’s actual, reasonable and necessary moving expenses for moving personal property from a mobile home may be determined based on the cost of one, or the combination of the eligible actual moving expenses or fixed payment as described above. The owner- occupant of a mobile home that is moved as personal property and used as a person’s replacement dwelling is also eligible for: 1. The reasonable cost of disassembling, moving, and reassembling any appurtenances attached to a mobile home, such as porches, decks, skirting, and awnings, which were not acquired, anchoring of the unit, and utility “hookup” charges; 2. The reasonable cost of repairs and/or modifications so that a mobile home can be moved and/or made decent, safe, and sanitary; 3. The cost of a nonrefundable mobile home park entrance fee, to the extent that it does not exceed the fee at the comparable mobile home park, if the person is displaced from a mobile home park or the RCTC determines that the payment of the fee is necessary to effect relocation. 2. Rental Assistance to Tenants/Owner-Occupants Who Choose to Rent A tenant or owner-occupant displaced from a dwelling may be entitled to a Replacement Housing Payment in the form of rental or down payment assistance not to exceed $5,250 (prior to consideration of eligibility for Last Resort Housing benefits – see Last Resort Housing, Section IV.G), if the displacee: 1. Has actually and lawfully occupied the displacement dwelling for at least 90 days immediately prior to the initiation of negotiations; and 2. Has rented, or purchased, and occupied a decent, safe, and sanitary replacement dwelling within one year (unless the RCTC extends this period for good cause) after: a. For a tenant, the date he or she moves from the displacement dwelling; or 46 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 24 i. For an owner-occupant, the later of: 1. The date final payment is received for the displacement dwelling, or in the case of condemnation, the date the full amount of estimated just compensation is deposited with the court; or 2. The date the owner-occupant moves from the displacement dwelling. Rental/Down payment Assistance payment amounts are equal to 42 times the difference between the base monthly rent and the lesser of: 1. The monthly rent and estimated average monthly cost of utilities for a comparable replacement dwelling; or 2. The monthly rent and estimated average monthly cost of utilities for the decent, safe, and sanitary replacement dwelling actually occupied by the displaced person. The base monthly rent for the displacement dwelling is the lesser of: 1. The average monthly cost for rent and utilities at the displacement dwelling for a reasonable period prior to displacement, as determined by the RCTC. For owner- occupants or households, which paid little or no rent, fair market rent will be used as a substitute for actual rent; or 2. Thirty percent (30%) of the displaced person’s average, monthly gross household income if the amount is classified as “low income” by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Annual Survey of Income Limits for the Public Housing and Section 8 Programs. HUD’s Survey is shown as Exhibit D. If a displacee refuses to provide appropriate evidence of income or is a dependent, the base monthly rent shall be determined to be the average monthly cost for rent and utilities at the displacement dwelling; or 3. The total of the amount designated for shelter and utilities if receiving a welfare assistance payment from a program that designated the amounts for shelter and utilities. 47 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 25 Table 20 below illustrates the computation of a rental/down payment assistance payment amount. Table 20: Computation of Rental Assistance Payments 1. Old Rent $1,000 Old Rent, plus Utility Allowance Or 2. Ability to Pay $950 30% of the Gross Household Income 3. Lesser of Lines 1 or 2 $950 Base Monthly Rental Subtracted From: 4. Actual New Rent $1,050 Actual New Rent including Utility Allowance Or 5. Comparable Rent $1,050 Determined by the RCTC; includes Utility Allowance 6. Lesser of Lines 4 or 5 $1,050 7. Yields Monthly Need: $100 Subtract Line 3 from Line 6 Rental Assistance $4,200 Multiply Line 7 by 42 Months 3. Down payment Assistance to Tenants/90 Day Owner-Occupants Who Choose to Purchase Displacees otherwise eligible to receive a Rental Assistance Payment as previously described, may choose to utilize the full amount of their rental assistance eligibility amount (including Last Resort Housing benefits) to purchase a home. Such payments shall be deposited directly to an escrow account with provisions that allow the RCTC to recover its funds should the escrow be cancelled or not proceed in a timely manner. Down payment assistance to a displaced owner- occupant cannot exceed the amount the owner would have received had the owner met the 180-day occupancy requirement. 4. Payments to 180 Day Residential Owner-Occupants Residential owner-occupants who have established residency for at least 180 days prior to the RCTC’s offer to purchase may be eligible for up to $22,500 in replacement housing assistance, prior to consideration of eligibility for Last Resort Housing benefits (see Last Resort Housing, Section IV.G). The amount of the Replacement Housing Assistance Payment will be determined based on three separate elements: a) Purchase Price Differential; b) Mortgage Interest Differential; and, c) Incidental Expenses. 48 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 26 a. Price Difference Differential The Purchase Price Differential is based on three factors: Acquisition Price: the price paid by the RCTC for the proposed Project dwelling; Actual Purchase Price: the actual price paid for a replacement dwelling; and, Comparable Replacement Cost: the cost of a decent, safe and sanitary dwelling comparable to the dwelling acquired by the RCTC. The purchase price differential amount is determined by comparing the price of the acquired dwelling (including any proceeds obtained through condemnation) to the lesser of the actual cost paid for a replacement home versus the price of the comparable dwelling used to compute eligibility in the Notice of Eligibility issued to the displaced owner. In today’s real estate market, many agencies have encountered owner-occupants with negative equity, where the fair market value is less than the outstanding debt. The RCTC will follow the Programmatic Waiver of the Code of Federal Regulations methodology for calculating replacement housing payments. This waiver allows computing a replacement housing payment based upon the initial written offer of just compensation rather than the administrative settlement amount. The qualifying conditions for use of the Programmatic Waiver are: • Applies only to those in a negative equity situation • Applies only to owner occupied homes • Applies only to single family homes • Applies only to mortgages that are current b. Mortgage Interest Differential The purpose of the Mortgage Interest Differential Payment is to compensate homeowners for increased costs between the acquired dwelling and the replacement dwelling. The payment for increased mortgage interest cost shall be the amount which will reduce the mortgage balance on a new mortgage to an amount which could be amortized with the same monthly payment for principal and interest as that for the mortgage(s) on the displacement dwelling. In addition, payments shall include other debt service costs, if not paid as part of incidental costs. To be eligible for this payment, the mortgage on the dwelling being acquired must have been in place, as a valid lien, for at least 180 days prior to the RCTC’s initial written offer to purchase. c. Incidental Expenses – Closing Costs One-time, non-recurring closing costs associated with the purchase of a comparable, replacement dwelling are compensable. Examples of such compensable expenses include costs for: a property survey; preparation of a legal description and deed; recording fees; title insurance; revenue stamps and transfer taxes; loan application fees; loan origination fees; appraisal fees; a credit report; certification for structural soundness; and, termite inspection, when required. Prepaid recurring expenses for mortgage interest, property taxes and insurance are not compensable. 49 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 27 The total Replacement Housing Payment is the sum of the Purchase Price Differential, Mortgage Interest Differential, and compensable Incidental Expenses. 5. Payments to Mobile Home Owners Mobile home owner-occupants will have four options with respect to relocation arrangements following the RCTC’s offer to purchase: 1. The owner may decline to sell his/her mobile home and elect to move and set up the unit in a new location, including any existing improvements, providing the total cost of moving the coach does not exceed the replacement cost of a comparable unit. It needs to be noted however, that current zoning and building code in California practically make it impossible for a coach older than five years to be moved and reestablished at another location. The move options would, therefore, leave sites outside California and would need to be verified at the owner’s expense. Benefits will include the cost of moving and setting up the existing mobile home, within 50 miles from the proposed Project, and Rental Assistance for space rent. 2. The owner may elect to sell the mobile home to the RCTC for its appraised value-in- place, and purchase a comparable replacement coach in another location; Benefits will include Replacement Housing Payment, Residential Moving Expenses, and Rental Assistance for space rent. 3. The owner may elect to sell the mobile home to the RCTC for its appraised value-in- place and apply their entitlement toward the purchase of another type of residential dwelling, including the amount determined for Rental Assistance for space rent. Benefits will include Replacement Housing Payment, Residential Moving Expenses, and Rental Assistance for space rent. 4. The owner may elect to sell the mobile home to the RCTC for its appraised value-in- place and rent an alternate type of residential unit. The owner will be entitled to utilize up to the total of the replacement housing eligibility in the form of rental assistance. Actual rental assistance eligibility will be determined by subtracting the difference between the economic rent of the mobile home residence from the market rent for an apartment of comparable size (e.g., number of bedrooms) multiplied by 42 months. 6. Payments to Non-tenured Residential Tenants A residential tenant who has actually and lawfully occupied the displacement dwelling for less than 90 days immediately prior to the initiation of negotiations is entitled to receive a moving expense payment. Additionally, non-tenured residential tenants may qualify for a rental assistance payment under the provisions of the Last Resort Housing assistance (see Last Resort Housing, Section IV.G). Such assistance is authorized when the person’s monthly rent and estimated average monthly utility costs for the replacement dwelling exceeds the person’s base monthly rental for the displacement dwelling. 50 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 28 D. Determinations of Comparable Housing Relocation staff will evaluate the cost of comparable replacement housing in the preparation of each individual Notice of Eligibility issued to residential displacees. For both residential tenants and owner-occupants, the cost of comparable replacement housing will be determined primarily on a comparative basis of three, if possible, presently available, comparable dwellings. A Replacement Housing Valuation Form will be prepared and placed in the file of each affected household. E. Relocation Benefits – Commercial Tenants, Non-profit Organizations and Offsite Owners of Rental Income Property Eligible businesses will have two options with respect to claims for relocation assistance benefits: 1. Compensation for actual reasonable and necessary moving and related expenses, or 2. A fixed payment not to exceed $20,000 *Off-site property owners whose sole business is considered to be the rental of real property to others are not eligible to receive a fixed payment but may file a claim for actual moving costs and compensation for reestablishment expenses up to $10,000.00. 1. Payment for Actual Reasonable and Necessary Moving and Related Expenses Any lawful business which qualifies as a displaced person is entitled to payment for such actual moving expenses, as the RCTC determines to be reasonable and necessary, including expenses for: 1. Transportation of persons and property from the present location to the replacement location (transportation costs for a distance beyond 50 miles are not eligible unless the RCTC determines that relocation beyond 50 miles is justified); 2. Packing, crating, uncrating, and unpacking personal property; 3. Disconnecting, dismantling, removing, reassembling, and installing relocated and substitute machinery, equipment and other personal property. Includes connection to utilities available nearby and modifications necessary to adapt such property to the replacement structure or to the utilities or to adapt the utilities to the personal property; 4. Storage of personal property for a period not to exceed 12 months, unless the RCTC determines that a longer period is necessary; 5. Insurance of personal property while in storage or transit and the replacement value of property lost, stolen, or damaged (not through the fault or negligence of the displaced person) in the process of moving, where insurance is not readily available. 6. Any license, permit, or certification required by the displaced business, to the extent that the cost is necessary for reestablishment at the replacement location. (These costs may 51 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 29 be pro-rated based on the remaining useful life of any existing license, permit, or certification); 7. Reasonable and pre-authorized professional services, including architects’, attorneys’, engineers’ fees, and consultants’ charges, necessary for: (1) planning the move of personal property; (2) moving the personal property; or, (3) installing the relocated personal property at the replacement location; 8. Professional services performed prior to the purchase or lease of a replacement site to determine its suitability for the business operation including, but not limited to, soil testing, feasibility and marketing surveys; 9. The purchase and installation of substitute personal property limited to the lesser of: (1) an amount equal to the reasonable expenses that would have been required to relocate the property, as determined by the RCTC, subject to certain limitations, or, (2) the replacement cost, less any proceeds from its sale or trade in; 10. Connection to available nearby utilities from the right-of-way to improvements at the replacement site; 11. The modification of machinery, equipment, or other personal property necessary to adapt these to the replacement location or to utilities available at the replacement location; 12. Re-lettering signs and replacing stationary on hand at the time of displacement that are made obsolete as a result of the move; 13. Actual direct losses of tangible personal property resulting from moving or discontinuing a business or non-profit organization, not-to-exceed the lesser of: (1) the fair market value of the property for continued use at its location prior to displacement less any proceeds from the sale of the property; or, (2) an amount equal to the reasonable expenses that would have been required to relocate the property, as determined by the RCTC, subject to certain limitations; 14. Actual and reasonable expenses incurred in searching for a replacement business or non- profit organization location, not to exceed $2,500, and including compensation for transportation expenses; time spent searching for a reasonable location, meals, and lodging; real estate broker or agent fees; time spent in obtaining permits and attending zoning hearings; and time spent negotiating the purchase of a replacement site; 15. Impact fees or one-time assessments for anticipated heavy utility usage; 16. Low Value/High Bulk: when the personal property to be moved is of low value and high bulk, and the cost of moving the property would be disproportionate to its value in the judgment of the RCTC, the allowable moving cost payment shall not exceed the lesser of: (1) the amount which would be received if the property were sold at the site or (2) the replacement cost of a comparable quantity delivered to the new business location. Examples of personal property covered by this provision include, but are not limited to, 52 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 30 stockpiled sand, gravel, minerals, metals and other similar items of personal property as determined by the RCTC; 17. A Reestablishment allowance of up to $50,000, available to farms, non-profit organizations and small businesses with no more than 500 employees. Reestablishment allowance payments are made in addition to compensation provided for actual, reasonable and necessary moving expenses. Reestablishment allowance expense categories include but are not limited to: a. Repairs or improvements to the replacement property as required by federal, state or local law, code, or ordinance; b. Modifications to the replacement property to accommodate the business operation or make replacement structures suitable for conducting business; c. Construction and installation costs for exterior signing to advertise the business; d. Redecoration or replacement of soiled or worn surfaces at the replacement site, such as paint paneling or carpeting; e. Advertisement of replacement location; f. Estimated increased costs of operation during the first two years at the replacement site for such items as: i. Lease or rental charges ii. Personal or real property taxes iii. Insurance premiums, and iv. Utility charges, excluding impact fees g. Other items essential to the reestablishment of the business. 2. Self-Moves If the displaced business elects to take full responsibility for the move of the business, the RCTC will make a payment for the business’ moving expenses in an amount not to exceed the lower of the two acceptable bids or estimates submitted to the RCTC. At the RCTC’s discretion, a payment for a low cost or uncomplicated move may be based on a single bid or estimate. 3. A Fixed Payment in Lieu of a Payment for Actual Reasonable Moving and Related Expenses The option to claim a fixed payment enables both for-profit and non-profit businesses to receive relocation assistance compensation without providing documentation of bids and actual expenses. The payment amount available to any individual business is based on an average of annual net earnings over a two year period. For businesses which have not been in operation for two years, income figures can be annualized. The method for establishing income is through tax returns and/or certified financial statements. The payment to an eligible business may not be less than $1,000, or more than $20,000. 53 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 31 To qualify for this payment, it must be determined that, a displaced business: • Owns or rents personal property, which must be moved in connection with such displacement and for which an expense would be incurred in such move; • Is not operated at the displacement site solely for the purpose of renting the dwelling or the site to others; • Cannot be a part of a commercial enterprise having at least three other establishments which are not being acquired by the RCTC, and which is under the same ownership and engaged in the same or similar business activities; • Must not be able to relocate without substantial loss of patronage; and • Contributed materially, as defined by the RCTC, to the income of the displaced person during the two taxable years prior to the displacement. When a fixed payment will precede settlement of a claim for compensation for loss of goodwill under the Eminent Domain Law RCTC, before tendering payment, shall state in writing what portion of the payment, if any, is considered to be compensation for loss of goodwill and shall explain in writing that any payment made pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure, §1263.510 et seq. (the Eminent Domain Law, Chapter 9, Article 6 – “Compensation for Loss of Goodwill”) will be reduced in the same amount. The portion considered to be compensation for loss of goodwill shall not exceed the difference between the fixed payment made and an amount which reasonably approximates the payments for which the displaced person otherwise would be eligible to receive as outlined in Section IV.E.1, above. F. General Information Regarding the Payment of Relocation Benefits Claims and supporting documentation for relocation benefits must be filed with the RCTC no later than 18 months after: • For tenants, the date of displacement; or • For owners, the date of displacement or the date on which final payment for the acquisition of real property is made, whichever is later. The procedure for the preparation and filing of claims and the processing and delivery of payments will be as follows: 1. Claimant(s) will provide all necessary documentation to substantiate eligibility for assistance; 2. Relocation staff will review all necessary documentation including, but not limited to, scopes-of-service, contractor bids, invoices, lease documents and escrow material before reaching a determination as to which expenses are eligible for compensation; 3. Required claim forms will be prepared by relocation staff and presented to the claimant for review. Signed claims and supporting documentation will be returned to relocation staff and submitted to the RCTC; 4. The RCTC will review and approve claims for payment, or request additional information; 54 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 32 5. The RCTC will issue benefit checks to claimants in the most secure, expeditious manner possible; 6. Final payments to residential displacees will be issued after confirmation that the proposed Project premises have been completely vacated, and actual residency at the replacement unit is verified; 7. Receipts of payment and all claim material will be maintained in the relocation case file. G. Last Resort Housing Based on data derived from the surveys and analyses of the occupants in the proposed Project area and costs of replacement housing resources, it is anticipated that “comparable replacement housing” will not be available as required. Specifically, for renters, when the computed replacement housing assistance eligibility exceeds $5,250 or replacement dwelling monthly rental costs (including utilities and other reasonable recurring expenses) exceeds 30 percent of the person’s average monthly income; or, for homeowners, replacement dwellings (including related increased interest costs and other reasonable expenses including closing costs) that exceed the total of the amount of just compensation provided for the dwelling acquired and the statutory maximum $22,500 replacement housing payment available to the person. Therefore, if the proposed Project is to go forward, the RCTC will authorize its funds or funds authorized for the proposed Project to provide housing of last resort. Due to the demonstrated number of available replacement housing resources for the occupants, as shown above in Section III, 1-3, the need to develop a replacement housing plan to produce a sufficient number of comparable replacement dwellings will not be necessary. Rather, funds will be used to make payments in excess of the monetary limits specified in the statute ($5,250 and $22,500); hence, satisfying the requirement that “comparable replacement housing” is available. The RCTC, at its discretion, may opt to pay Last Resort Housing payments in installments or in a lump sum. Recipients of Last Resort rental assistance, who intend to purchase rather than re- rent replacement housing, will have the right to request a lump sum payment of all benefits in the form of down payment assistance. Tenant households receiving periodic payments will have the option to request a lump sum payment of remaining benefits to assist with the purchase of a decent, safe and sanitary dwelling. H. Immigration Status Federal legislation (PL105-117) prohibits the payment of relocation assistance benefits under the Uniform Act to any alien not lawfully present in the United States unless such ineligibility would result in an exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to the alien’s spouse, parent, or child, any of whom is a citizen or an alien admitted for permanent residence. Exceptional and extremely unusual hardship is defined as a significant and demonstrable adverse impact on the health or safety, continued existence of the family unit, and any other impact determined by the RCTC to negatively affect the alien’s spouse, parent, or child. The RCTC may elect to authorize 55 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 33 the payment of relocation assistance benefits to any otherwise eligible residential or commercial displacee from non-federally authorized reimbursable funds. In order to track and account for relocation assistance and benefit payments, relocation staff will be required to seek immigration status information from each displacee 18 years and older and non-residential occupants by having them self-certify as to their legal status. I. Relocation Tax Consequences California Government Code §7269 indicates no relocation payment received shall be considered as income for the purposes of the Personal Income Tax Law, Part 10 (commencing with §170 01) of Division 2 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, or the Bank and Corporation Tax law, Part 11 (commencing with §23001) of Division 2 of the Revenue and Taxation Code. Furthermore, federal regulations (49 CFR Part 24, §24.209) also indicate that no payment received under this part (Part 24) shall be considered as income for the purpose of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, which has been redesignated as the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. The preceding statement is not tendered as legal advice in regard to tax consequences, and displacees should consult with their own tax advisor or legal counsel to determine the current status of such payments. (IRS Circular 230 disclosure: To ensure compliance with requirements imposed by the IRS, we inform you that any tax advice contained in this communication (including any attachments) was not intended or written to be used, and cannot be used, for the purpose of (i) avoiding tax-related penalties under the Internal Revenue Code or (ii) promoting marketing or recommending to another party any matters addressed herein) 56 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 34 V. Administrative Provisions A. Holdover Tenancies The RCTC’s acquisition schedule may allow some business and residential tenants to remain in occupancy of RCTC acquired properties for periods as long as six months prior to displacement. It is hoped that by adding additional time to the relocation process, businesses will have greater opportunities to successfully re-establish operations at a new location. Residential tenants will benefit by having greater flexibility to plan a move around school schedules, as an example, or other personal considerations. Holdover tenants will be required to enter into a Rental Agreement with the RCTC and make monthly payments. The RCTC will assume responsibility for all property management functions. Holdover tenants will be required to conform to state and local law and the requirements of RCTC’s Rental Agreement or face eviction in conformance with the RCTC’s eviction policy as set forth in Section V.E. B. Notices Each notice, which the RCTC is required to provide to a property owner or occupant, shall be personally delivered or sent by certified or registered first-class mail, return receipt requested and documented in the case file. Each notice will be written in plain, understandable language. Persons who are unable to read and understand any notice will be provided with appropriate translation and counseling. Each notice will indicate the name and telephone number of a person who may be contacted for answers to questions or other needed help. There are three principal notices: 1. General Information Notice, 2. Notice of Relocation Eligibility, and 3. Ninety-Day Notice The General Information Notice is intended to provide potential displacees with a general written description of the RCTC’s relocation program and basic information concerning benefits, conditions of eligibility, noticing requirements and appeal rights. This notice will be issued at the time the properties are being appraised A Notice of Relocation Eligibility (NOE) will be distributed to each commercial and residential displacee, including off-site owners of rental properties. The NOE to business operators acknowledges the recipient’s eligibility for assistance and right to make claims for relocation assistance benefits. The NOE to residential displacees, both tenants and owner-occupants, contains a determination of eligibility for relocation assistance and a computation of maximum entitlement based on information provided by the affected household and the analysis of comparable replacement properties undertaken by relocation staff. NOEs will be issued promptly following the initiation of negotiations with property owners. 57 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 35 No lawful occupant will be required to move without having received at least 90 days advance written notice of the earliest date by which the move will be necessary. The 90-day notice will either state a specific date as the earliest date by which the occupant may be required to move or state that the occupant will receive a further notice indicating, at least 60 days in advance for residential tenants and 30 days in advance for owner-occupants and non-residential occupants, the specific date of the required move. The 90-day notice will not be issued to any residential displacee before a comparable replacement dwelling has been made available. In addition to the three principal notices, relocation staff will issue timely written notification in the form of a Reminder Notice, which discusses the possible loss of rights and sets the expiration date for the loss of benefits to those persons who: 1. Are eligible for monetary benefits, 2. Have moved from the acquired property, and 3. Have not filed a claim for benefits. Reminder Notices will be issued periodically throughout the qualification period. An attempt shall be made to make written contact with all non-responsive displacees no later than within the last six months prior to the filing expiration date. C. Privacy of Records All information obtained from displacees is considered confidential and will not be shared without the consent of the displacee or RCTC or as a requirement of a specific Public Records Request in accordance with State Law. Relocation staff will comply with federal regulations concerning the safeguarding of relocation files and their contents. D. Grievance Procedures A person who is dissatisfied with a determination as to eligibility for benefits, a payment amount, the failure to provide comparable replacement housing referrals, or the RCTC’s property management practices must file an appeal form or any other written form of appeal with the RCTC’s Right-of-Way Program Manager or his/her designee (Hearing Officer). The Hearing Officer shall set a hearing date of no later than 30 days from receipt of the appeal. The person making the appeal shall have: 1. The right to present oral and/or written evidence in support of the appeal, 2. The right to seek legal counsel (hired at the appellant’s sole expense), and 3. The right to seek judicial review once having exhausted all administrative appeal remedies. The Hearing Officer shall render a decision, in writing, within 30 days following the last day of the hearing. A copy of the decision will be mailed, certified or registered, to the appellant and his/her authorized representative and copies filed in the relocation case file. The decision of the Hearing Officer shall be final, and the appellant shall be advised of the right to seek judicial review of the Hearing Officer’s decision. 58 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 36 E. Eviction Policy Eviction for cause must conform to applicable state and local law. Any person, who occupies the real property and is in lawful occupancy on the date of the initiation of negotiations, is presumed to be entitled to relocation payments and other assistance, unless the RCTC determines that: 1. The person received an eviction notice prior to the initiation of negotiations and as a result of that notice is later evicted, or 2. The person is evicted after the initiation of negotiations for serious or repeated violation of material term(s) of the lease or occupancy agreement, and, 3. In either case, the eviction was not undertaken for the purpose of evading the obligation to make available the payments or other assistance to which a person may otherwise be entitled. F. Citizen Participation The RCTC conducted a public hearing concerning the proposed Project on June 9, 2011. As the process for considering the proposed Project moves forward, the RCTC will observe the following protocol: 1. Provide affected tenants with full and timely access to documents relevant to the relocation program; 2. Encourage meaningful participation in reviewing the relocation plan and monitoring the relocation assistance program; including the proposed Project area occupants, neighborhood groups and community organizations forming a relocation committee; 3. Provide technical assistance necessary to interpret elements of the Relocation Plan and other pertinent materials; 4. Issuance of a general notice concerning the availability of the Plan for public review, as required, 30 days prior to its proposed adoption; 5. The inclusion of written or oral comments concerning the Plan as an attachment (Exhibit J) when it is forwarded to the RCTC Commission for adoption. G. Projected Dates of Displacement The RCTC received approval to initiate early acquisition and relocation activities in late 2010 and those activities will be completed no later than the end of 2014, with construction scheduled to begin in 2014 and end in 2017. H. Estimated Relocation Costs The total budget estimated for relocation-related payments for this Project, including a 10 percent contingency, is as follows: Relocation: $ 4,100,000 Contingency at 10 percent: $ 410,000 Total: $ 4,510,000 59 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project 37 The estimated relocation budget does not include any payments related to property acquisition, improvements pertaining to realty, or loss of business goodwill. In addition, the budget does not consider the cost of any services necessary to implement the Plan and complete the relocation element of the proposed Project. If the proposed Project is to be implemented, and circumstances arise that should change either the number of residential and business occupants, or the nature of their activity, the RCTC will authorize any additional, compensable funds that may need to be appropriated. The RCTC pledges to appropriate, on a timely basis, the funds necessary to ensure the successful completion of the proposed Project, including funds necessary for last resort housing as indicated in Section IV.G, of this Plan to meet its obligation under the relocation regulations. 60 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project Exhibit A: Project Aerial Map 61  62 Relocation Plan for the SR-91 Corridor Improvement Project Exhibit B: Business Interview Form 63 Client/Project:Case ID: Site Address:Interview Date:□ Unoccupied City, St, ZIP:Interviewer:□ No Contact Business Claimant Information Legal business name (from tax return):Person interviewed (name/title): Ownership type: Business type: Name under which claimant conducts operations (dba):□ Sole Proprietor URA type (list 1): □ Partnership OPC type (list 2): Mailing address (if different):□ Corporation Goods, products or services provided: □ Non-profit Date business established: This site move-in: Business Contacts Information Name: Title/position: Business phone: Cell phone: Fax #: Email: Authority (Y/N): □ Can the person(s) with authority to sign claims and agreements read/understand English?

You will be contacted at an early date and personally interviewed by a representative of RCTC. The interviewer will want to get information about your current operation, as well as identify movable personal property and non‐movable improvements, determine your needs and preferences for a replacement location, estimate the time required to vacate the premises and your need for advance payments.  During the interview, you may want to discuss other issues relative to your move.  It is to your advantage to provide as much information as possible so that RCTC, through its relocation representative, can assist you in moving.  Every reasonable effort will be made to provide you with sufficient time to find a suitable replacement location and reestablish your business. If possible, a mutually agreeable date for the move will be worked out. Unless there is an urgent need for the property (e.g., your occupancy would present a health or safety emergency), you will not be required to move without at least 90 days advance written notice. It is important, however, that you keep in close contact with your relocation representative so that you are aware of the time schedule for carrying out the project and the approximate date by which you will have to move. 3. How Will RCTC Know How Much Help I Need? 4. How Soon Will I Have to Move? Any person aggrieved by a determination as to eligibility for, or the amount of, a payment authorized by RCTC’s Relocation Assistance Program may have the appeal application reviewed by RCTC in accordance with its appeals procedure. Complete details on appeal procedures are available upon request from RCTC. California Government Code Section 7269 indicates no relocation payment received shall be considered as income for the purposes of the Personal Income Tax Law, Part 10 (commencing with Section 170 01) of Division 2 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, or the Bank and Corporation Tax law, Part 11 (commencing with Section 23001) of Division 2 of the Revenue and Taxation Code. Furthermore, federal regulations (49 CFR Part 24, Section 24.209) also indicate that no payment received under this part (Part 24) shall be considered as income for the purpose of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, which has been designated as the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. The preceding statement is not tendered as legal advice in regard to tax consequences, and displacees should consult with their own tax advisor or legal counsel to determine the current status of such payments. (IRS Circular 230 disclosure: To ensure compliance with requirements imposed by the IRS, we inform you that any tax advice contained in this communication (including any attachments) was not intended or written to be used, and cannot be used, for the purpose of (i) avoiding tax‐related penalties under the Internal Revenue Code or (ii) promoting 15. Tax Status of Relocation Benefits 14. Appeals 89 You must file a claim for a relocation payment. RCTC’s relocation representative will provide you with the required claim forms, assist you in completing them, and explain the type of documentation that you must submit in order to receive your relocation payments. If you must pay any relocation expenses before you move, discuss your financial needs with RCTC. You may be able to obtain an advance payment.  An advance payment may be placed in "escrow" to ensure that the move will be completed on a timely basis. If you are a tenant, you must file your claim within 18 months after the date you move. If you own the property, you must file within 18 months after the date you move, or the date you receive the final acquisition payment, whichever is later.  However, it is to your advantage to file as soon as possible after you move. The sooner you submit your claim, the sooner it can be processed and paid. If you are unable to file your claim within 18 months, RCTC may extend this period. You will be paid promptly after you file an acceptable claim. If there is any question regarding your right to a relocation payment or the amount of the payment, you will be notified, in writing, of the problem and the action you may take to resolve the matter.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: In May 2012, environmental permits for the I-215 Central Project were issued to the Commission by the ACOE: Section 404; the California Department of Fish and Game (DFG): Streambed Alteration Agreement 1602; and the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB): Section 401. The permits are required prior to construction within jurisdictional waters. Each permit includes a number of conditions that must be met by the Commission as the permittee. If a permitting agency determines the prescribed conditions are not being fully implemented, work in the area covered by the permit will be stopped until such time that the deficiency is remedied. All three permits require mitigation for permanent impacts to vernal pools. This mitigation work is being performed by ICF International, Inc. through the Commission’s on-call environmental contract. Vernal pool mitigation requires the Commission to provide financial assurance for the estimated cost to implement the mitigation. The financial assurance is a vehicle for ACOE and DFG to rely on if the 122 Agenda Item 10 Commission does not fulfill the commitments in the permits. As such, ACOE and DFG have agreed to financial assurance in the form of an escrow account with the County Treasurer in the amount of $350,000. Agreement No. 13-31-048-00 establishes the terms for the escrow account agreement that is expected to be in place for approximately 10 years. Payments from the escrow account to an authorized party to cure mitigation failures of the Commission can only be authorized by ACOE. Interest earned on the escrow account will be paid directly to the Commission rather than to the escrow account.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Army Corps of Engineers By: __________________________ Title: __________________________ Authorized Representative 136 AGENDA ITEM 11 Agenda Item 11 RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: October 22, 2012 TO: Western Riverside County Programs and Projects Committee FROM: Lisa DaSilva, Capital Projects Manager THROUGH: Marlin Feenstra, Project Delivery Director SUBJECT: Agreements Related to the Construction of the Interstate 215 Central Widening Project from Scott Road to Nuevo Road in the Cities of Menifee and Perris STAFF RECOMMENDATION: This item is for the Committee to: 1) Approve Agreement No. 10-31-001-01, Amendment No. 1 to Agreement No. 10-31-001-00, with URS Corporation (URS) to perform additional design support during the construction of the Interstate 215 Central widening project for $550,354 using remaining contract authorization; 2) Approve Agreement No. 13-31-035-00 with the California Highway Patrol (CHP) for Construction Zone Enhanced Enforcement Program (COZEEP) services during the construction of the I-215 Central widening project in an amount not to exceed $380,000; 3) Approve Agreement No. 11-31-109-01, Amendment No. 1 to Agreement No. 11-31-109-00, with the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians to increase the contract amount by $100,000 for Native American monitoring services during the construction of the I-215 Central widening project for a total amount not to exceed $125,000; 4) Authorize the Chair or Executive Director, pursuant to legal counsel review, to execute the agreements on behalf of the Commission; and 5) Forward to the Commission for final action. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: At its September 2012 meeting, the Commission awarded the construction agreement for the I-215 Central widening project between Scott Road and Nuevo Road in the cities of Menifee and Perris to Skanska USA Civil West (Skanska). This project will extend the third mixed flow lane from Scott Road to Nuevo Road resulting in three continuous mixed flow lanes in each direction from Interstate 15 to the 60/91/215 interchange. Since the September Commission meeting, Skanska and staff have been working to complete the necessary pre-construction activities. Some of the pre-construction activities include making sure the necessary funding 137 Agenda Item 11 and scoping agreements are in place for services needed during construction. These construction support services include design support by the detailed design firm, COZEEP services by the CHP, and Native American monitoring. Construction Support Services During the construction phase of the project, the design firm, URS, will need to be available to resolve the construction contractor’s design questions, modify the design if necessary, and prepare as-built drawings at the conclusion of construction. The original professional services contract scope did not include these construction support services. Staff completed negotiations with URS and is in agreement with the estimated cost required for construction support services for an amount not to exceed $550,354. Cost and scope details are included in Attachment 1. The detail design work was completed ahead of schedule and over $2 million under the original budget. The cost to complete this additional scope will therefore be paid from the remaining contract authorization. COZEEP COZEEP traffic control services are required during construction as a safety measure to increase traffic enforcement above normal levels. CHP officers may be used to slow down or assist in stopping or directing traffic to enable necessary breaks in traffic for critical movements of the contractor’s equipment and operations. Staff has been coordinating with the CHP to develop an agreement for COZEEP traffic control services to be provided by the CHP Temecula Area office for an amount not to exceed $380,000. The draft agreement is still under development with the CHP Sacramento office. An interim agreement might be necessary if the final agreement is not received by the CHP in the next 30 days. CHP COZEEP services are anticipated to begin in December 2012. Native American Monitoring A portion of the project is within Native American culturally sensitive areas. The environmental clearance requires the project give the affected Native American Tribe, Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians, the opportunity to monitor construction excavation activities occurring in the sensitive areas. During the design development stage, Agreement No. 11-31-109-00 with the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians for Native American monitoring services was executed for monitoring services during project data gathering. Agreement No. 11-31-109-01, Amendment No. 1 to Agreement No. 11-31-109-00, will be executed to increase 138 Agenda Item 11 the not to exceed amount for the I-215 Central widening project by $100,000, for a total not to exceed amount of $125,000. The draft amendment is included as Attachment 2.

RCTC will advertise, award and administer (AAA) the construction phase of the project. In addition, RCTC has procured, under separate contract, the services of a construction management firm (Resident Engineer) to assist with AAA of the project. The level of effort for engineering services during construction must be estimated, because it is not possible to clearly identify potential unknown issues that may arise nor the specific products, deliverables and support services that will be necessary during construction. The level of effort required also depends somewhat on the contractor that ultimately is awarded the construction contract and the project manager and foreman that the successful bidder is able to assign to this particular project. Therefore, we have developed the following scope of work based upon our experience with major infrastructure improvement projects. Task 1 Engineering Support Services During Construction This task includes the efforts necessary to support RCTC and the RE relative to delivery of the constructed improvements at the I-215 Central Widening project. These services do not involve full review and monitoring of the construction contractor’s operations. URS will assist with interpretation of design intentions as the work progresses and work with the contractor, RCTC and the RE to resolve issues that may arise due to changed conditions in the field and possibly requested design changes initiated by the contractor, RCTC or other stakeholder parties. 1.1 Contractor and Other Coordination Meetings 1.1.1 Pre-Construction Meeting URS will attend one pre-construction meeting with the successful contractor. The meeting will be an opportunity to discuss the contractor’s interpretation of the design documents and to inform the construction delivery team as to any assumptions that the contractor may have made in preparation of their bid. URS 140 I-215 Widen (SR to NR) - Construction Support Page 2 will be prepared to discuss key elements of the design, special noticing and reporting requirements that may be the responsibility of the contractor, communication protocols, methods for resolving issues and critical milestones that will be necessary to meet the project’s objectives and schedule. Representatives from the design team will attend the pre-construction meeting. 1.1.2 Other Construction Meetings Other construction meetings are anticipated including meetings with the RE, RCTC and/or the contractor to assess specific conditions in the field. In particular, field coordination during protection and relocation of various existing utility facilities may be necessary. This task also includes effort to meet with RCTC to discuss construction aspects of the project, as needed. 1.2 Requests for Information (RFIs) Construction projects in developed urban areas often generate a significant number of requests for information (RFIs). RFIs may result from differing site conditions that were not known or determinable during the design phase of the project. The contractor will typically identify their question in the form of a written RFI that will be forwarded to the RE for resolution. In certain cases the RE (or RCTC’s representative) will provide direction to the contractor without consultation with the designer when the issue does not affect the approved design. Other times the RFI is strictly an inquiry as to the intent of the design and these questions will typically be forwarded to URS and answered in writing. RFIs may also be used by the contractor to request changes or substitutions of elements in the design. URS will consider these requests and determine an appropriate response for RCTC to consider. RFIs are primarily assumed to involve general field questions and design clarifications. Some RFIs will require a quick answer from the designer. Others will involve more research and possibly new analyses to determine the proper course of action. URS will strive to provide an initial response within one day of receiving an RFI inquiry. The initial response may involve a telephone discussion with the RE to identify key constraints (physical, schedule and/or budgetary) that may affect the response to the RFI. Our level of effort estimate for responses to RFIs assumes that approximately 80 Civil/Roadway, 40 Traffic and 40 Structural RFIs will be generated by the contractor and approximately half of those will require involvement and some level of response from URS. An average of five hours per RFI has been assumed for budgeting purposes. Budget has also been included to address planting and irrigation RFIs. 1.3 Shop Drawing and Product Submittal Reviews An important role of the designer in the construction phase of the project will be to review and approve certain contractor submittals for conformance with the 141 I-215 Widen (SR to NR) - Construction Support Page 3 intent of the design. The specifications identify the various items that require submittal and designer approval prior to incorporating the work element into the project improvements. Submittals may involve shop drawings, product submittals, analysis of test results, catalogue cuts, finishes, alternative materials and potentially, product substitutions. URS will compare the submitted materials to the design documents and any background calculations or data that may be necessary to support review of various work elements. It is assumed that each submittal will be a complete package ready for review, with selected features clearly identified and an appropriate number of copies forwarded to URS. Incomplete submittals will be returned to the contractor without an initial review. Contractor submittals will be stamped by URS and the appropriate disposition (acceptance, denial or re-submittal) of the shop drawing or product submittal determined and annotated directly on one copy of the submittal. Two sets of the reviewer’s comments and signed review stamps will be returned to the contractor through the RE for action by the contractor or incorporation into the project within two weeks of receipt unless a longer time period is specified in the Special Provisions. Up to eight civil/traffic shop drawings and/or product submittals are anticipated with a level of effort of twelve hours per submittal, which includes one initial review and one subsequent backcheck/re-review of re-submittals. Multiple reviews of re-submittals that do not adequately address the initial review comments are not included in the level of effort estimate. 1.4 Construction Change Orders More significant changed conditions or direction from RCTC may result in the need to issue a Change Order (CO). URS will prepare the necessary technical drawings and specification revisions for review and approval of the CO. Efforts related to CO administrative documentation and processing COs with the contractor will be performed by the RE and are not included in this level of effort estimate. Up to six civil/traffic COs are anticipated affecting an average of two drawings for each CO. Significant changes are not anticipated. 1.5 Site Meetings/Visits It may be necessary to meet with the construction delivery team occasionally to address issues, exchange information and monitor progress of the improvements. Also, construction team meetings help to facilitate a shared responsibility for ensuring that the project is completed successfully. Since it is not the intent that URS monitor the day-to-day operations of the contractor at the project, site reviews will be conducted at the direction of RCTC. However, since the need and frequency of these meetings cannot accurately be estimated at this time, one meeting per month (a total of 30 meetings) at the site for either civil, traffic or structures staff has been assumed for this level of effort. 142 I-215 Widen (SR to NR) - Construction Support Page 4 1.6 Preparation of As-Built Drawings After construction has been completed, URS will prepare one set of as-built drawings for delivery to RCTC. One set of final as-built, marked-up drawings, as maintained by the contractor, will be provided by the contractor through the RE for incorporation into the as-built plans. As-built conditions will not be verified, surveyed or checked by URS. The as-built mark-ups will be drafted in Microstation to create a final electronic as-built drawing set. These will be marked “As-Built” and one electronic and one 11” x 17” set of bond paper plots will be prepared and submitted. Our level of effort estimate assumes an average of one half hour per sheet for additions, deletions or modifications. Budget is also included for preparation of planting and irrigation plan as-builts. This level of effort also accounts for re-plotting all of the sheets for the as-built submittal. Task 2 Survey and Right of Way Requests for Information This task includes budget to continue with various survey support activities with respect to clarifying the intent of previously completed design surveys and right of way acquisition activities from a survey perspective. These include surveying background related to utility potholing and on-going utility relocation designs by the utility owners. Survey support may also be necessary for completion of final right of way acquisitions and for railroad right of way research and coordination. This surveying task does not include additional field surveys. Task 3 Project Management and Administration This task includes the necessary support efforts to continue management and administration of the project, including the direct expenses for Tasks 1, 2 and 3. These efforts include coordinating the team’s engineering services during construction activities, scheduling resources and responses, preparing invoices and status reports in the format specified by RCTC, attendance at meetings not identified elsewhere in this scope, preparing agendas and meeting notes for these meetings and conducting quality assurance efforts for the responses to construction-related inquiries. 143 RCTC I-215 Widening (162) -

SUBJECT MATTER This Agreement concerns a project known as I215 Widening from Scott Road to Nuevo Road (as more fully described in the I215 Widening Scott to Nuevo HPSR dated November 30, 2010) ("PROJECT"). The Riverside County Medical Examiner’s Office (“Medical Examiner”) will be provided a copy of this Agreement by the PECHANGA BAND. RCTC, Lead Agency for the PROJECT, and agency responsible for environmental compliance of this PROJECT ("Lead Agency"), will be provided a copy of this Agreement by the PECHANGA BAND. 148 #FCU5BQ6M0D1CKBv1 Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians I215 Widening Scott Road to Nuevo Road Page 2 Amended Cultural Resources Treatment Agreement III. PURPOSE The purpose of this agreement is to formalize procedures for the treatment of Native American human remains, grave goods, funerary objects, ceremonial items, and cultural items, in the event that any are found in conjunction with development of the PROJECT. This agreement also formalizes procedures for tribal monitoring during all pre-grading (such as grubbing), grading, groundbreaking, excavation, and ground- disturbing activities performed in conjunction with the PROJECT development, including, but not limited to archaeological testing, studies, surveys, and staging activities. This Agreement is entered into pursuant to the mitigation measures required under the California Environmental Quality Act, Cal. Public Resources Code § 21000 et seq. ("CEQA") and the conditions of approval for this PROJECT. This Agreement is effective as of the date provided for in Section XIX. IV. CULTURAL AFFILIATION The PARTIES agree that the PROJECT area consists of land which has been traced to and traditionally occupied by the PECHANGA BAND. Any Native American human remains as defined in Section VII which are found in conjunction with the development of this PROJECT shall be treated in accordance with Sections V through VIII of this Agreement. Cultural resources shall be treated in accordance with Section IX of this Agreement. Significant sites shall be treated in accordance with Section X of this Agreement. V. MOST LIKELY DESCENDANT In the event that Native American human remains are found during development of this PROJECT, the PARTIES understand that the determination of Most Likely Descendant ("MLD") under California Public Resources Code Section 5097.98 will be made by the Native American Heritage Commission ("NAHC") upon notification to NAHC of the discovery of said remains at the PROJECT site. Until such time, neither the PECHANGA BAND nor RCTC guarantees that the PECHANGA BAND or one of its members will be so named. However, given the location of the site and the history and prehistory of the area, the PARTIES agree that their good faith belief is that, when and if such Native American human remains are discovered at the PROJECT site, Tribal Chairperson Mark Macarro of the PECHANGA BAND will be named the MLD. Should the NAHC determine that a member of an Indian tribe other than the PECHANGA BAND is the MLD, the provisions of this Agreement relating to the treatment of such Native American human remains shall be null and void in their entirety, except that, in such an event, the provisions of Addendum 1 to this Agreement relating to compensation shall specifically continue in full force and effect. 149 #FCU5BQ6M0D1CKBv1 Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians I215 Widening Scott Road to Nuevo Road Page 3 Amended Cultural Resources Treatment Agreement VI. COORDINATION WITH COUNTY MEDICAL EXAMINER’S OFFICE RCTC shall immediately contact the Medical Examiner and the PECHANGA BAND in the event that any human remains are discovered during the development of the PROJECT. The Medical Examiner shall ensure that notification is provided to the NAHC as required by California Public Resources Code Section 5097.98(a). VII. TREATMENT OF NATIVE AMERICAN REMAINS In the event that Native American human remains are found during development of the PROJECT and the PECHANGA BAND or a member of the PECHANGA BAND is determined to be MLD pursuant to Section V of this Agreement, the following provisions shall apply. The term "Native American human remains" encompasses more than human bones because the PECHANGA BAND’S traditions call for the burial of associated cultural resources with the deceased (grave goods and funerary objects), and the ceremonial burning of Native American human remains, funerary objects, grave goods and animals. Ashes and other remnants of these burning ceremonies, as well as grave goods and funerary objects, associated with or buried with the Native American remains, are to be treated in the same manner as bones, bone fragments and cremations. The Medical Examiner shall immediately be notified, ground disturbing activities in that location shall cease, and the remains shall be left in the place where they were discovered until the Medical Examiner has had the opportunity to inspect the remains in place and make a determination as required by State law, and until a final decision as to the treatment and disposition has been made pursuant to this Agreement and the State law. The PECHANGA BAND shall be allowed, pursuant to California Public Resources Code Section 5097.98(a), to (1) inspect the site of the discovery and (2) make recommendations as to how the human remains and grave goods should be treated with appropriate dignity. RCTC shall discuss and confer with the PECHANGA BAND all reasonable options with regard to its preferences and recommendations for treatment. The PARTIES agree to discuss in good faith what constitutes "appropriate dignity," as that term is used in the applicable statutes and in the PECHANGA BAND'S customs and traditions. In addition, pursuant to California Public Resources Code Section 5097.98(f), upon discovery of multiple human remains, RCTC agrees to consult with the PECHANGA BAND to consider appropriate treatment of multiple human remains. The PECHANGA BAND understands that consultation with RCTC would be required in discussing appropriate treatment. The PECHANGA BAND shall complete its inspection and make its MLD recommendation within forty-eight (48) hours of receiving notification of the MLD determination from the NAHC. The PECHANGA BAND shall have the final determination as to the disposition and treatment of human remains and grave goods. The PARTIES acknowledge that the PECHANGA BAND’s general preference is that all human remains not 150 #FCU5BQ6M0D1CKBv1 Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians I215 Widening Scott Road to Nuevo Road Page 4 Amended Cultural Resources Treatment Agreement be disturbed or disinterred and RCTC agrees in good faith to accommodate that preference when feasible. VIII. NON-DISCLOSURE OF LOCATION OF REBURIALS It is understood by the PARTIES that, unless otherwise required by law, the site of any reburial of Native American human remains shall not be disclosed and will not be governed by public disclosure requirements of the California Public Records Act, Cal. Govt. Code § 6250 et seq. The Medical Examiner shall withhold public disclosure of information related to such reburial pursuant to the specific exemption set forth in California Government Code Section 6254(r). IX. TREATMENT OF CULTURAL RESOURCES Treatment of all cultural items, including ceremonial items and archaeological items will reflect the religious beliefs, customs, and practices of the PECHANGA BAND. RCTC agrees to give all cultural items, including ceremonial items and archaeological items, which may be found at the PROJECT site to the PECHANGA BAND for appropriate treatment, unless RCTC is otherwise ordered by a court or agency of competent jurisdiction. RCTC waives any and all claims to ownership of Tribal ceremonial and cultural items, and all archaeological items which may be found on the PROJECT site in favor of the PECHANGA BAND. If temporary possession of cultural items by RCTC or an agent, subcontractor, or representative of RCTC is necessary (for example a PROJECT archaeologist), said entity or individual shall not possess those items for longer than is reasonably necessary, and which will include inventory and evaluation of cultural materials at the PROJECT site. All PARTIES agree that ceremonial and sacred items shall be immediately relinquished to the PECHANGA BAND for appropriate treatment. X. SIGNIFICANT SITES IMPACTED BY PROJECT All PARTIES agree that if additional significant sites or sites not identified as significant in the PROJECT environmental review process, but later determined to be significant, are located within the PROJECT impact area, such sites will be subjected to further archaeological and cultural significance evaluation by RCTC, as Lead Agency, and the PECHANGA BAND to determine if additional mitigation measures are necessary to treat sites in a culturally appropriate manner consistent with CEQA requirements for mitigation of impacts to cultural resources. XI. WORK STATEMENT FOR TRIBAL MONITORS The description of work for Tribal monitors is attached hereto as Addendum 1 and incorporated herein by reference. Addendum 1 specifies the development activities that Tribal monitors will monitor, the geographical area over which this monitoring shall be conducted, the size of the monitoring crew, the powers of the monitoring crew, and provisions for compensation of the Tribal monitors, and other pertinent provisions. 151 #FCU5BQ6M0D1CKBv1 Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians I215 Widening Scott Road to Nuevo Road Page 5 Amended Cultural Resources Treatment Agreement XII. SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the heirs, successors, representatives, executors, administrators, and assigns of the parties, including subsequent land owners and developers of the PROJECT area, and any person or entity obligated to comply with environmental and cultural/archaeological protection laws applicable to this PROJECT. XIII. ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE Nothing in this Agreement shall excuse the Lead Agency on this PROJECT or RCTC from their obligations under any applicable state or federal laws or regulations, including but not limited to CEQA”; Public Resources Code § 21000 et seq., the National Historic Preservation Act (“NHPA”) 16 U.S.C. § 470 et seq.; California Public Resources Code Sections 5097.98, 5097.98(c), and 5097.99; California Health and Safety Code Sections 7050.5(c); California Government Code Section 6254, 65040.2, 65092, 65351, 65352, 65560, 65352.3, 65352.4, 65562.5; California Civil Code 815.3; the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, 25 U.S.C. § 3001 et seq.; the California Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act of 2001, California Health and Safety Code §§8010 et seq.; the American Indian Religious Freedom Act, 16 U.S.C. § 1996, et seq., and the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to make any of the above-referenced laws applicable where such laws would otherwise be inapplicable. XIV. INDEMNITY The PECHANGA BAND in no way indemnifies nor guarantees RCTC, as the Lead Agency, in any of its legal obligations under CEQA or any of the other state or federal laws or regulations related to Native American human remains. XV. SEVERABILITY Should any part of this Agreement be found by any court or agency of competent jurisdiction to be to any extent invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement shall not be affected thereby and shall be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law. 152 #FCU5BQ6M0D1CKBv1 Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians I215 Widening Scott Road to Nuevo Road Page 6 Amended Cultural Resources Treatment Agreement XVI.

Date: __________________________ Date: __________________________ Tribe: PECHANGA BAND OF RCTC: RIVERSIDE COUNTY LUISEÑO INDIANS TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION __________________________ __________________________ By: Mark Macarro By: Anne Mayer Its: Chairman Its: Executive Director 153 #FCU5BQ6M0D1CKBv1 Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians I215 Widening Scott Road to Nuevo Road Page 7 Amended Cultural Resources Treatment Agreement AMENDED ADDENDUM 1 TRIBAL MONITORING I215 Widening Scott Road to Nuevo Road I. SPECIFICATIONS Given the nature and sensitivity of the archaeological sites and cultural resources that are or may be in the PROJECT area, the PECHANGA BAND may designate monitor representatives to be retained as Tribal monitors during all pre-grading (such as grubbing), geologic boring, grading, groundbreaking, excavation, and ground-disturbing activities performed in conjunction with the PROJECT development, including, but not limited to testing, studies, surveys, and staging activities. Monitor representatives shall cooperate with RCTC’S archaeological monitors and with RCTC’S Construction Engineer. In the event that Native American human remains, as defined in Section VII of the Cultural Resources Treatment and Tribal Monitoring Agreement (“Agreement”), incorporated herein by reference, are found during development of the PROJECT, tribal monitors are authorized to temporarily halt and/or relocate grading or excavation activities pending further investigation by the Medical Examiner and the PECHANGA BAND, pursuant to California Health & Safety Code §7050.5. The Tribal monitors are further authorized to temporarily halt and/or relocate grading or excavation activities, for short periods of time, to conduct further evaluation of the significance of discovered cultural items, including further controlled excavations pursuant to California Public Resources Code §21083.2(i). Surface or subsurface artifacts of significance may be collected and mapped during this controlled excavation in consultation with the PECHANGA BAND. If Native American human remains are found, coordination of the treatment of those remains, as defined in Section VII of the Agreement, will be conducted in accordance with Sections V through VIII of the Agreement. Cultural resources shall be treated in accordance with Section IX of the Agreement. Significant sites shall be treated in accordance with Section X of the Agreement and applicable PROJECT conditions. Regarding PROJECT activities, a pre-excavation conference shall be held by RCTC to clarify monitoring specifications with the grading contractor and/or RCTC Project manager and Construction Engineer. The Pechanga Cultural Resources Committee or the PECHANGA BAND’s designated representative shall be invited to participate in this conference. The PECHANGA BAND shall coordinate with RCTC’S Construction Engineer on activities that involve RCTC’s Contractor. If necessary, archaeological observation shall consist of a qualified archaeologist, retained by RCTC, to be present during ground-disturbing activities to identify and/or ascertain the significance of any subsurface cultural resources or to aid in the avoidance of sensitive areas. 154 #FCU5BQ6M0D1CKBv1 Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians I215 Widening Scott Road to Nuevo Road Page 8 Amended Cultural Resources Treatment Agreement II. PROJECT TO BE MONITORED Monitoring shall encompass certain portions of the I215 Widening from Scott Road to Nuevo Road, defined in Section II of the Agreement and more fully described in the I215 Widening Scott to Nuevo HPSR dated November 30, 2010. Based on the cultural and archaeological sensitivity of the PROJECT site, including the potential for Native American human remains and cultural resources, and the fact that cultural resources and Native American human remains have been discovered nearby, it is agreed that monitoring will be allowed for all ground-disturbing activities performed in conjunction with the PROJECT development. III. PROJECT CREW SIZES For purposes of determining Tribal monitoring crew sizes, a written schedule of ground-disturbing activities, as described above, will be submitted by RCTC to the PECHANGA BAND or its designated representatives one week in advance of the commencement of these activities. The PARTIES to this Agreement anticipate the need for a Tribal monitoring crew consisting of two (2) persons. If the scope of work changes to require additional monitors (for example, if inadvertent discoveries of cultural resources are made or simultaneous grading occurs in two or more geographic areas), RCTC agrees to come to a reasonable agreement with the PECHANGA BAND regarding compensation of more than two (2) Tribal monitors. IV. COMPENSATION The PECHANGA BAND shall hire the Tribal monitoring crew for this PROJECT and shall be responsible for coordinating their activities on this PROJECT. The PECHANGA BAND recognizes that dangerous conditions can exist at the PROJECT work site, particularly during grading operations, and agrees to assume responsibility for the safety of the Tribal monitoring crew while on the PROJECT site. The PECHANGA BAND possesses liability insurance for its monitors. RCTC shall compensate the Tribal monitors at the rate of $60.00 per hour for 120 days, plus reimbursement for all reasonable and documented mileage expenses at the current Federal Travel Regulation mileage rate. The hourly rate of compensation paid to the Tribal monitor shall be adjusted for inflation based on 2013 dollars. The adjustment, if any, shall be calculated in accordance with the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Revised Consumer Price Index. Hourly rate compensation adjustments shall be made only once a year. For purposes of rate compensation adjustment, a year commences on January 1st. A minimum half-day charge ("show up time") will be charged to the RCTC for unannounced work stoppages of Tribal monitors which are not due to actions of the PECHANGA TRIBE. The hourly rate will not be applicable to travel time to and from the Project site. The amount of reimbursement for monitoring services may not exceed $60,000.00 for services rendered as of the last date under Section XIX of the Agreement. RCTC agrees to negotiate for additional funding if the monitoring services will exceed the “not to exceed” amount stated herein. 155 #FCU5BQ6M0D1CKBv1 Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians I215 Widening Scott Road to Nuevo Road Page 9 Amended Cultural Resources Treatment Agreement Overtime rates of time and a half ($90 per hour) of the quoted rate apply for “after hours” and “weekend” work. For purposes of this Agreement, “after hours work" is defined as services performed beyond an eight hour day from start of construction. “Weekend work” is defined as services performed between close of the eight-hour construction day on Friday and start of construction work Monday morning. Holiday rates of double time ($120 per hour) of the quoted rate apply for all holiday work. The hourly rate will not be applicable to travel time to and from the Project site. RCTC agrees that the PECHANGA BAND may invoice RCTC for the Tribal monitors' compensation on a monthly basis. RCTC also agrees to remit payment in full to the following address within thirty (30) days of receipt of the PECHANGA BAND's invoice: Accounting Department Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians Attn: Accounts Receivable P.O.
