Passage of a Resolution certifying that the City of Brentwood is in compliance with the Growth Management Program and authorizing the Mayor to execute the Growth Management Checklist for calendar years 2000 and 2001 for allocation of Measure C Local Street Maintenance & Improvement funds.
On September 12, 2000, the City Council passed Resolution number 2148, approving the calendar year 1999 Growth Management Checklist.
To receive Measure C Local Street Maintenance & Improvement funds each jurisdiction in Contra Costa County is required to take several actions. These actions include adopting a Growth Management Element that sets traffic level-of-service and facility performance standards, adopting both a development mitigation program and a transportation systems management ordinance, participating in cooperative planning to reduce traffic impacts, developing a five-year capital improvement program, and monitoring housing needs progress and creation of job opportunities.
For the first ten years of the Measure C program, the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) used an Annual Checklist as the instrument of compliance. As a result of a review of the Growth Management Program in 1999 and 2000, the checklist is now required biennially while funds will be continued to be allocated on an annual basis to the participating jurisdictions. This is an effort to reduce the administrative burden on both local jurisdictions and CCTA staff without compromising program effectiveness. Jurisdictions that successfully complete this calendar 2000 and 2001 checklist will first receive payment for FY 2001-02, and then will receive payment of FY 2002-03 funds on the one-year anniversary of the previous year’s allocation, without having to submit another checklist.
The checklist demonstrates how the City of Brentwood has complied with the requirements of the Measure C Growth Management Program. The checklist contains questions regarding how the City has met requirements as follows:
1. Action Plans. Local jurisdictions are required to implement the actions, measures, and programs agreed upon in the Action Plan for Routes of Regional Significance as adopted by the jurisdictions’ Regional Committee and the Contra Costa Transportation Authority.
2. Regional Transportation Mitigation Program (RTMP). Local jurisdictions are required to adopt a development mitigation program to ensure that new development pays its fair share of the costs associated with that development and that no funds from Measure will be used to replace private developer funding that has been or will be committed to any project. Local jurisdictions are also required to participate in the development of a regional transportation mitigation program, including fees, assessments, or other mitigation.
3. Housing Options. Each jurisdiction is required to develop an implementation program, based on their capital improvement program and General Plan Housing Element, that creates housing opportunities for all income levels. This checklist submittal must include a report to CCTA on Housing Element implementation progress. The General Plan Housing Element Progress Report is included as an attachment to the checklist submittal.
4. Growth Management Element: Performance Standards. Each jurisdiction must adopt a Growth Management Element that establishes performance standards for fire, police, parks, sanitary facilities, water, and flood control and must apply these standards in the development review process.
5. Growth Management Element: Traffic Level-of-Service Standards. Each jurisdiction is required to adopt and comply with traffic Level of Service (LOS) standards keyed to types of land use. Compliance with this element requires that the jurisdiction maintain a list of signalized intersections on non-regional routes and monitor the LOS at these intersections every two years.
6. Participation in Cooperative, Multi-Jurisdictional Planning. Jurisdictions must participate in the Regional Transportation Planning Committees in cooperative efforts to ease cumulative traffic impacts.
7. Five-Year Capital Improvement Program. In order to meet and maintain adopted traffic service and performance standards, local jurisdictions are required to develop a five-year capital improvement program which includes approved projects, their estimated costs and a financial plan for providing the improvements.
8. Transportation Systems Management Program. Measure C requires local jurisdictions to adopt a transportation systems management ordinance, resolution or alternative mitigation program.
9. Maintenance of Effort (MoE). Each jurisdiction is required to maintain a minimum level of local street and road expenditures. The expenditure level is based upon an historic amount spent for transportation by each jurisdiction during a base period. The City of Brentwood requirement is $177,369 per year.
10. Posting of Signs. Each jurisdiction must post signs meeting CCTA specifications for all projects exceeding $250,000 that are funded in whole or in part with Measure C funds.
If the checklist is not completed and approved as meeting the requirements of the Measure C Growth Management Program by the Contra Costa Transportation Authority, the City will not be eligible to receive the estimated $315,178 allocation for FY 2001-02. This amount is 2.62% of the total funds available and is based on population numbers from State Department of Finance as of January 2001 and Caltrans 1998 Road Mileage. The allocation for FY 2002-03 will be forwarded to the City without having to submit another checklist.
