RECOMMENDATION


Recommend the TAM Board approve the funding recommendations shown in Attachment D.


BACKGROUND


The One Bay Area Grant (OBAG) Program is MTC’s funding approach that attempts to integrate the region’s federal transportation program with California’s climate law (Senate Bill 375, Steinberg, 2008) and

the Sustainable Communities Strategy. Funding distribution to the counties is intended to encourage land- use and housing policies that support the production of housing with supportive transportation investments.

OBAG Cycle 1 covered a five-year period from FY 12/13 to FY 16/17. TAM programmed funds from OBAG Cycle 1 to eligible projects in November 2012.

 

Those projects have either been completed or will be entering construction in FY 16/17.


In November 2015, MTC adopted guidelines for funding distribution from OBAG Cycle 2 that covers another five-year period from FY 17/18 to FY 21/22.

 

OBAG CYCLE 2 DISTRIBUTION


MTC provided distribution figures for OBAG 2 that shows a total of $790 million. Of the $790 million available, MTC set aside $436 million (55%) for regional programs and $354 million (45%) for county distribution.

The regional programs include $16 million for Priority Conservation Area (PCA) projects.

The PCA Program in administered by the California Coastal Conservancy for the Bay Area as a regional program but the four North Bay counties will be provided $2.05 million each to administer their own individual programs.


The below table summarizes the categories and amounts for the Regional Programs to be administered by MTC.

 

  SMART has refused to fund the necessary move of the San Rafael TRANSIT CENTER ( and the PATHWAY along its tracks to Larkspur). And now they say they are going to proceed with construction of the track to Larkspur in 2017 !

SMART threatens that if the pathway from 2nd Street to Anderson Drive is not constructed, at the same time as the tracks, it will be considerably more expensive (at the same time they refuse to fund it themselves).

Both the Transit Center move and the Pathway should have already been included in SMART's plans 2005-2008 which was presented to the voters.

 

The Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) is scurrying to find funding for these projects ( see Kinsey say the new Transit Center could cost $30-$40 million in the video on http://www.tam.ca.gov/index.aspx?page=185 July 28 meeting, near the end). By doing this they are enabling SMART's renege

 

TAM's Evaluation Considerations include "Does the project reduce congestion in Marin?"

But provides no details on how this is achieved.

 

In fact, it turns out that SMART will :-

  • --- take no more than 79 cars off Hwy 101 per commute peak hour
  •             ( see the calculation here).
  • --- stop traffic on 2nd and 3rd street every 15 minutes
  •               (causing a huge backup both directions and onto the freeway)
  • --- have few to zero spaces available for its riders on the Larkspur Ferry
  •  

At this point there is enough information available to say that SMART from San Rafael to Larkspur will  produce much more "congestion in SR AND Marin", far more than taking 79 cars off 39 miles of the freeway and it would be beneficial to the people of Marin to delay this for as long as possible.

Supposing San Rafael and TAM refused to move the Transit Center? SMART could not, then, build the track and relieve Marin commuters of great congestion pain !

 

Perhaps we now have enough information to actually sue TAM for a detailed analysis of the net "traffic congestion" that this SMART extension will produce?

Of the $354 million available for county distribution, MTC used a formula that factored population, housing RHNA, housing production, and housing affordability.

Based on this formula and a policy principle that TAM staff fought for and were successful in achieving -- to keep smaller counties whole from OBAG 1,

TAM received $10,025,000 for OBAG 2, as summarized in the below table.

 This county distribution amount is separate from the $2,050,000 in PCA funds that TAM received from the Regional Programs.


Marin’s share of housing was reduced from 2.7% of the regional total of housing need to 1.3% that resulted in reducing Marin’s share of the County Distribution to $8.3 million in OBAG 2 funds versus $10.3 million in OBAG 1.

TAM’s Executive Director and Marin’s MTC Commissioner worked with MTC to raise the funds available to $10 million, roughly equal to what Marin received under OBAG 1.


MTC agreed to this adjustment for this cycle of federal funds with a clear warning to TAM that the adjustment will not be allowed in future cycles of federal funds, and so Marin should expect less in the future.


Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act


On December 4, 2015, a new five-year federal surface transportation authorization was signed into law.

The new law, called Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST), increased federal funding available to the MTC region by $72 million.

Combined with $54 million in unallocated existing revenues, MTC has $126 million in additional funds to augment the OBAG 2 framework.


On July 13, 2016, MTC’s Programming and Allocations Committee (PAC) recommended to the MTC Commission to program $32 million of the additional funds to the county distribution by the formula noted above.

The rest of the funds were recommended to be allocated to a combination of Housing Production Incentive Program, Bay Bridge improvements, Naturally Occurring Affordable Housing (NOAH) Program,

Transit Priorities projects, and Climate Initiatives projects.


Of the $32 million programmed to county distribution, TAM will receive $845,000 on top of the

$10,025,000 mentioned above, for a total of $10,870,000.


The MTC Commission is scheduled approved the PAC’s recommendation on July 27, 2016.


COUNTY DISTRIBUTION


Subject to MTC Commission’s approval of the additional funds from the FAST Act on July 27, 2016, TAM is scheduled to receive $10,870,000 in OBAG 2 funds and $2,050,000 in PCA funds. The PCA funds were

TAM Board Meeting, Item 10 Page 3 of 10

July 28, 2016


issued through a separate Call for Projects and will be deliberated preceding this OBAG item on the TAM Board July agenda.


Of the $10,870,000 available, MTC set aside a minimum amount for each county for CMA planning and administrative activities. These are primarily activities that MTC requires CMAs to perform.

 TAM has been receiving these funds for the last 10 years and relies on them. While MTC estimates an average of

$765,000 annually for CMA activity, TAM staff believe we can reduce this amount to a lower level of funding, making more funds available for programming to projects and programs.

 The MTC set aside for CMA planning and administrative activities for the five-year period is $3,822,000, leaving $7,048,000 for projects and programs.


OBAG 2 Guidelines require minimum amounts to be programmed for Safe Routes to School (SRTS) projects and projects in Priority Development Areas (PDAs) for each CMA. Of the $7,048,000 available,

TAM is required to program a minimum of $864,000 to SRTS projects or programs and $3,092,000 to projects in PDAs. Marin City and Downtown San Rafael are the two PDAs in Marin.

 Please note that a SRTS project in a PDA would count toward both minimum requirements.


In February 2016, the TAM Board authorized staff to augment the OBAG 2 funds with other local funds shown in the below table to increase the available amount to be programmed, after the set-asides were deducted.

 Staff was able to increase the available funds due to a Highway 101 Gap Closure credit of $3 million recently received in 2015.

The Caltrans credit can be used on project types that are eligible for State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) funds, as that is the source of the credit.

 It would be prudent to program these funds where eligibility, timing, and federal complexity issues are potential impediments to delivery.


In addition to the Caltrans credit, staff included this coming annual cycle of Transportation Fund for Clean Air (TFCA) and Transportation Development Act (TDA) Article 3 funds to the OBAG 2 Call for Projects.

 TFCA and TDA funds are limited to bicycle, pedestrian, and clean air projects. TAM annually issues a Call for Projects with TFCA and TDA funds.

Given the timing and likelihood of receiving bicycle and pedestrian applications from the OBAG 2 Call for Projects,

 including the upcoming annual amount of TFCA and TDA funds would be efficient and gives us the latitude to match specialized funds with specific projects.


The below table summarizes the funds from OBAG 2 with the other abovementioned funding sources:

CALL FOR PROJECTS


A Call for Projects was issued on Mach 30, 2016 with all of the abovementioned available funds except for the additional funds of $845,000 from the FAST Act.

The $845,000 additional funds from the FAST Act were factored into the selection process after applications were received since the funds were only recommended by MTC’s PAC on July 13, 2016 and

still conditioned on the approval from the MTC Commission on July 27, 2016.


If the MTC Commission does not approve the additional funds from the FAST Act for County Distribution or reduce the amount recommended by the PAC,

staff will return at a later TAM Board meeting to recommend a reduction in programming equivalent to final amount available.


Applications Received


By the deadline of May 6, 2016, TAM received 42 applications from 15 applicants. For the first time with these federal funds, the Call for Projects allowed transit operators to be eligible applicants.

 With these applications received, Marin Transit, Golden Gate Transit, and SMART became first-time applicants.


Another first-time applicant was the National Park Service (NPS) with a bike trail application. The remaining applicants were the cities, towns, Marin County, and TAM.

A total of 42 applications were initially considered and evaluated for the available amount of $9,813,000. Attachment A is a summary and descriptions of the applications received.


The total amount requested from the 42 applications is over $49 million. Based on the amount available of

$10.7 million, there is a requested to available funds ratio of 5 to 1 or only 22% of the requested funding can be delivered.


Attachment A provides lists of applications and Attachment B is the local priorities as provided by the applicants with multiple applications.

Please note that some applications may have multiple components, such local streets and roads (LSR) components and bicycle and pedestrian components,

but they were sorted into the category where one component appears to be the dominant component of the application.

The distinctions between Safe Routes to School (SRTS) and bicycle and pedestrian applications are particularly difficult to distinguish. Some applications can be easily classified as both.


Below is a table summarizing the applications received by categories.

OBAG 2 REQUIREMENTS


The following requirements only apply to OBAG 2 federal funds. They are not applicable to local, TFCA, or TDA funds. If an applicant is ruled ineligible from receiving OBAG 2 federal funds by MTC,

the same applicant may still receive local, TFCA, and/or TDA funds.


Housing Element


MTC requires applicants receiving OBAG 2 federal funds must have a general plan housing element adopted and certified by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) for


2014-2022 by May 31, 2015. Jurisdictions that have failed to meet this deadline must have their housing elements certified by HCD by June 30, 2016 in order to be eligible to receive OBAG 2 funding.

For transit operator sponsored applications, the jurisdiction where the project is located must meet this requirement.


All Marin jurisdictions have met this requirement.


Complete Street Resolution


MTC requires applicants receiving OBAG 2 federal funds must adopt a Complete Streets compliant revision to the circulation element of the general plan after January 1, 2010 or

adopt a complete street resolution by the date TAM submits TAM Board-approved OBAG 2 applications to MTC. Deadline for submission to MTC is June 2017 but

TAM anticipates submitting approved applications sooner than the submission deadline. For transit operator sponsored applications, the jurisdiction where the project is located must meet this requirement.


MTC staff recently reported that as of June 30, 2016, the Marin jurisdictions are considered non-complying include: Corte Madera, Sausalito, and Novato.

However, in the past month, Corte Madera and Sausalito have submitted resolutions for MTC’s review and approval.

Novato staff has reported that it will meet this requirement by the time TAM submits approved applications to MTC with the possibility of presenting a resolution to its Council for approval in September 2016.


If the outstanding jurisdictions do not received approval from MTC for their Complete Street Resolutions by the time TAM submits its approved applications,

 staff may need to return to the TAM Board with revised recommendations that omit non-complying applicants from receiving OBAG 2 funds.


APPLICATION EVALUATION


TAM staff considered the following factors (not in priority order), among others, in recommending applications to the TAM Board for funding.

These factors were either specifically noted in the OBAG 2 Guidelines by MTC or included by staff as germane. All of these factors were included in the Call for Projects:


  • Does the project reduce congestion in Marin?

  • Who are the beneficiaries of this project and how many are projected to benefit from this project?

  • Does the project support transportation and land use connections by encouraging housing and employment near transit?

  • Does the project improve transportation choices and connectivity or promote multi-modal access?

  • Is the project in or proximate to a PDA?

  • Is the project regionally significant?

  • Does the project leverage other funds/amount and timing of matching funds?

  • Is this project a local priority?

  • Does this project support the delivery of goods and services?


As must as possible, staff attempted to quantify the evaluation criteria with measureable distinctions between applications.

For evaluation criteria that are not naturally quantifiable, staff evaluated the factors with a high/medium/low or yes/no evaluation.


EVALUATION PROCESS


The evaluation was conducted initially by TAM staff and a consultant based on the abovementioned criteria. Based on these criteria, the applications were ranked in order of priority.


In addition, TAM’s Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) and the Marin Public Works Association (MPWA) were presented with the applications received with the guidelines of each funding sources at separate meetings.

 They heard from applicants and deliberated on the applications’ merits. The recommendations from the BPAC and MPWA are summarized in a comparison in Attachment C.

Staff will meet with non-applying member(s) of City Managers on July 27, 2016 to review staff’s evaluation process. Result of the meeting will be reported verbally at the July 28th TAM Board meeting.


The result of staff’s evaluation and funding recommendations are shown in Attachment D.

 Staff made efforts to incorporate as much as possible the recommendations from the BPAC and MPWA into the final staff recommendations.


The below table summarizes the recommended funding by categories if approved with no changes.

This table shows a recommended funding amount of $10,992,000, which is greater than the amount available for programming mentioned above at $10,668,000.

The difference of $324,000 is attributed to two planning projects (San Anselmo’s Hub Study and Ross’ Bike Plan Update) that are recommended for funding from the CMA planning and administrative set-aside funds.

While MTC intended these funds for CMA planning and administrative activities, the funds can also be programmed for planning projects.

 TAM staff has determined that all CMA planning and administrative activities over the 5-year period can be accommodated with the proposed lesser amount of the CMA planning funds.


Applications Withdrawn From Consideration


Three applications were subsequently withdrawn by applicants from consideration.

TAM withdrew Project 40 Richmond-San Rafael Bridge Approaches and Project 41 Marin County Safe Routes to School Program Sustainment because they will be considered for other funding sources.

Marin Transit withdrew Project 13 Transit Priority Improvements on Sir Francis Drake to coordinate with Marin County on the Sir Francis Drake Major Road Project under Measure A.


FUNDING RECOMMENDATONS


As noted above, the summary of the programming recommendations for OBAG 2, local, TFCA, and TDA is shown in Attachment D.

Attachment D also includes the recommended funding for PCA applications. While PCA funds were not included with this Call for Projects, it would be beneficial to see how all funds were programmed.


Staff is recommending funding the projects ranked two to 12 with OBAG 2 and local funds.

 In additions, one application was recommended for funding with TFCA funds and three applications were recommended for TDA funds. Below are discussions on some of the applications.


Transportation Funds for Clean Air (TFCA)


Staff is recommending programming the entire available amount of approximately $360,000 to Sausalito’s Gate 6 application.

This recommendation is consistent with the BPAC and MPWA’s recommendation.

The recommended TFCA amount was less than the requested amount. Both BPAC and MPWA provided a second option if Sausalito declines the TFCA funds if other funds cannot be secured to complete the full funding plan.

 Staff is also proposing to program $140,000 in local funds to fund the total project costs. Therefore, the second options recommended by both groups would not need to be considered.


Transportation Development Act (TDA)


Staff is recommending programming the TDA funds to three projects, with $100,000 to Corte Madera Redwood Highway Path Repaving, $115,000 to Larkspur’s Magnolia Avenue Crosswalk Improvements, and

the remaining amount of approximately $45,000 to Marin County’s Bicycle Route Sign program.


The BPAC and MPWA have similar recommendations with the noted differences that MPWA recommended $82,000 in TDA funds to Sausalito’s Gate 6 application to alleviate the shortfall and a lesser amount ($28,000) for

Larkspur’s Magnolia Avenue Crosswalk Improvements to only implement a Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) out the proposed project.

 Given that staff is recommending local funds to fully fund the Sausalito’s Gate 6 application, programming additional TDA funds to this project is not necessary,

leaving more funds to fully construct Larkspur’s Magnolia Avenue Crosswalk Improvements.


San Rafael Bettini Transit Center


When the Call for Projects was issued, there was no firm commitment to program any funds from the Port Sonoma $18.4 million earmark to the San Rafael Bettini Transit Center.

On July 27, 2016, the MTC Commission is scheduled to approve a recommendation to Caltrans and FHWA for $3.2 million of the Port Sonoma earmark to be programmed for the Bettini Transit Center.

 The remainder of the earmark, $15.2 million, will be going towards the Marin Sonoma Narrows (MSN). Caltrans and FHWA will make a final recommendation in the August - September timeframe.


The recommended $3.2 million is sufficient funding to construct an interim bus transit facility to temporarily replace the lost bus bays at Bettini Transit Center when SMART extends to Larkspur.

TAM funds from OBAG 2 in the amount of $1,500,000 would likely not be necessary for the interim bus facility but could be used to start environmental and preliminary engineering along with public outreach on a new facility.


If there are no plans to proceed on an interim bus transit facility but instead proceed to construct a permanent new Bettini Transit Center,

then the $3.2 million earmark funds is sufficient for preliminary engineering and environmental clearance with necessary public outreach. TAM funds will not be necessary for the transit center.


San Rafael’s highest local priority is to complete the sidewalk upgrade along Francisco Boulevard East.

The total funds requested, reflecting a project cost to complete the improvements from Vivian Street to the Grand Avenue Bridge, is $5.4 million. Since it will be difficult to dedicate such a large amount to a single project,

 TAM worked with City of San Rafael staff to identify a portion of the project that could proceed with a smaller amount of funds.

It is not unusual to build such an extensive improvement in stages, as a portion of the sidewalk was put into place from Bellam to Vivian in 2012,

as part of the widening of the Westbound 580 connector to Northbound 101 under the State's Proposition 1B Bond program.

San Rafael identified a usable sidewalk segment from Vivian to the south corner of Harbor Street, which can be built for approximately $2.2 million.


The 2nd St. to Anderson Drive bike path along the SMART right-of-way is the top priority of MCBC.

The cost of the pathway at $2.3 million is partially offset by a commitment from MTC in late November 2015 of $1 million coming from MTC sources.

 This would reduce the TAM OBAG contribution to $1.3 million.


TAM staff is recommending dedicating $3.1 million to a combination of these three projects in the Downtown San Rafael PDA, setting the funds aside, and

 deferring a final decision until more is known about securing the Port Sonoma earmark funds and determining if a temporary or permanent transit center facility should proceed.

If the Port Sonoma earmark dedication of $3.2 million is confirmed by FHWA and Caltrans and applied to developing a permanent new Bettini Transit Center,

 then the $3.1 million would be dedicated to East Francisco Blvd and/or the 2nd St. to Anderson bike path within the SMART right-of-way.


If the Port Sonoma Earmark is not confirmed, then the $1.5 million of TAM OBAG 2 funding for the temporary or permanent Bettini Transit Center will serve as initial funding for either facility decision.


If the Port Sonoma Earmark is confirmed, and no OBAG funds are needed to proceed with the transit center work, then,

respecting the city's priority, and recognizing the critical needs of the Canal Neighborhood in improving Francisco Blvd East,

the $2.2 million requested by the City of San Rafael for a logical next phase of the East Francisco corridor could be programmed.

This would allow a significant segment of the widened sidewalk/bike path along Francisco Blvd East to be built,

which a priority project in the Community Based Transportation Plan (CBT) conducted in concert with the Canal Neighborhood in 2008.

 The Francisco Blvd East sidewalk is the only project not built from the Canal Neighborhood CBTP and it remains a very high priority for the community.


The remainder of the funds, $800,000, could be applied to the 2nd to Anderson bike path, substantially within the SMART right-of-way, with a $500,000 gap in funding that could be sought from other sources and/or other agencies.


Novato SMART Station


Novato is requesting $2.9 million for its new SMART station in Downtown Novato on Grant Avenue. Novato approved the addition of a third SMART station in Novato, in January 2016, and

has identified funds totaling $2.5 million which has enabled SMART to construct all of the key components that must be done now for SMART to operate north and south of that future station site.

 There remains a shortfall of $2.9 million for the station to proceed.


The requested $2.9 million is a substantial amount of funds to dedicate to a single project; given that nearly

$50 mil in need has been identified for $10 mil in funding available.

A substantial amount of the funds are required to be programmed to supporting Priority Development Areas, and Novato has not identified any Priority Development Areas within its limits.


Staff is recommending that half the requested funds be programmed at $1.45 million.

TAM Board Meeting, Item 10 Page 9 of 10

July 28, 2016


Corte Madera’s Tamal Vista Blvd Corridor Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements


The Tamal Vista project was one of the highly regarded candidates by the TAM BPAC.

The BPAC recognized the project was very costly and did not fit into the smaller amounts of annual funds (TFCA and TDA) TAM receives for bike/pedestrian improvements.

The BPAC recommended it be considered for OBAG 2 funds. TAM scored the project and its significance in terms of priority by Corte Madera, and

 its usage as a critical link along the North South Greenway resulted in a strong score. It is right above the cutoff for funding being available, and

TAM staff did not have sufficient funds to meet the entire request. However, TAM staff is recommending it be funded with non-federal funds,

which should reduce the cost of delivering the project, as local funds are much easier to use. Staff recommends $ 892,000 towards the project.


Local Streets and Roads (LSR) Requests


Since OBAG 2 did not include a set aside for local streets and roads projects, MPWA agreed among themselves to submit applications in the amount of $2.639 million for LSR projects.

If approved, the funds would be distributed by a formula of 50% population and 50% lane miles.


Since the shares for the smaller jurisdictions were too small and impractical for federal funds, Novato agreed to exchange federal funds with local funds for all agencies except Marin County and San Rafael.

 Novato would give the smaller agencies 75% in local funds for every dollar of federal funds received. Marin County and San Rafael would apply for their own applications.

The three applications that fall under this arrangement are Novato’s Nave Drive/Bel Marin Keys Blvd Resurfacing, Marin County’s Sir Francis Drake Rehabilitation in San Geronimo, and San Rafael’s Street Resurfacing Program.


Staff is not recommending funding these projects because of the great demand from projects that are immediately needed because of the start of SMART operations,

projects that have regional significance, and projects that are considered high priority for the County.

Also, LSR projects get annual funding from TAM and the State from of gas tax revenues.

In June, TAM allocated approximately $5.7 million in Measures A and B funds to LSR projects.

 LSR projects will continue to get funding from TAM and the State on an annual basis, but

 the opportunity to fund some of the regionally significant projects will be lost after this OBAG cycle because the next OBAG cycle will not take place until FY 22/23 and the $3 million in local funds is a one-time funding source.


While staff’s recommendations do not include the three applications, they do include $2.28 million for two LSR projects.

Staff is recommending $1.134 million for San Anselmo’s SFD Pavement Rehabilitation and Marin City CSD’s Phillips Drive.


It should also be noted that under the Major Road category in Measure A, the West Planning Area still has approximately $937,000 remaining after the Sir Francis Drake Blvd project near Samuel P. Taylor Park was completed.

The West Planning Area encompasses Marin County’s application for SFD Blvd in San Geronimo.

While Marin County has plans to use the Measure A funds to rehabilitate SFD Blvd between Lagunitas Road and Wild Iris Drive, Marin County can use the funds for the application submitted for OBAG 2.

It would be a trade-off but the remaining Measure A funds are available for either segment.


Transit center in Novato at Redwood and Grant


TAM has been a supporter of Marin Transit's revitalized transit center in Novato at Redwood and Grant through past dedication of funding.

The project applied for Active Transportation Program funds from MTC and was awarded funding totaling approximately $1.3 million. In the MTC program review by the

TAM Board Meeting, Item 10 Page 10 of 10

July 28, 2016


California Transportation Commission (CTC) and Caltrans, a lesser level of funds was recommended, resulting in a shortfall of $311,000 in the funds needed for the capital construction of the project.


TAM staff is recommending $311,000 from local funds which will be available immediately to Marin Transit for their capital construction needs.


In a letter dated May 16th, Marin Transit requested a total of $400,000 in funding from TAM for the Redwood and Grant transit center.

 The additional funds above the ATP program shortfall are for support costs on the project.


In Measure A Strategic Plan Update adopted on June 23, 2016, Marin Transit was credited with an additional $1.8 million from Measure A that was previously unavailable to them.

These were funds from the very first year of the Measure A program that were left off of TAM's very first Strategic Plan due to erroneous calculations.

The funds are now newly available to Marin Transit.


TAM staff recommends that support cost increases for the Redwood and Grant transit center be funded from the additional $1.8 million received by Marin transit for this coming fiscal year.


NEXT STEPS


  1. Monitor the final decision on the Point Sonoma earmark repurposing and return to the TAM Board on the final recommendations for the three projects contingent on this earmark repurposing.

  2. Submit approved applications for OBAG 2 funds to MTC for approval.

  3. Submit approved application(s) for TFCA funds to BAAQMD for approval.

  4. Submit approved application(s) for TDA funds to MTC for approval.

  5. Issue funding agreements for applications approved for local funds.
