Meeting Date: February 26, 2008

Subject/Title: Adopt a Resolution approving a plan for the use of Proposition 1B transportation funds, authorizing the City Engineer to submit the plan to the State Department of Finance and amending the CIP Budget Sheet for the John Muir Parkway Extension/Foothill Drive-Phase I, CIP Project No. 336-31640.

Prepared by: Debra Galey, Management Analyst

RECOMMENDATION
Adopt a Resolution approving a plan for the use of Proposition 1B transportation funds, authorizing the City Engineer to submit the plan to the State Department of Finance for disbursement of funds and amending the Capital Improvement Program (“CIP”) Budget Sheet for the John Muir Parkway Extension/Foothill Drive-Phase I, CIP Project No. 336-31640 to reflect project funding from this source.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On June 12, 2007, by Resolution No. 2007-126, City Council adopted the City’s 2007/08 – 2011/12 Capital Improvement Program that included the John Muir Parkway Extension/Foothill Drive-Phase I, CIP Project No. 336-31640.

BACKGROUND
In November 2006, California voters approved State Proposition 1B which provides $19.925 billion in bond funds for various transportation projects, including $2 billion for cities and counties to fund the maintenance and improvement of local transportation facilities. Further, legislation allocated $550 million of these funds to local cities for the 2007/08 Fiscal Year (”FY”) based on population. Brentwood’s share for the current FY amounts to $786,635. To receive disbursement of these funds, the State Department of Finance requires the local jurisdiction to approve a plan for their use consistent with Proposition 1B intent for the improvement of transportation facilities/projects.

The John Muir Parkway Extension/Foothill Drive-Phase I, CIP 336-31640 is currently included within the previously approved 2007/08-2011/2012 CIP Budget. Funding for this project is from a combination of facility fees, development contributions and reimbursement from the County of the Vasco Road Safety Improvement Loan. This project will extend the existing southerly termini of John Muir Parkway and Foothill Drive to existing Concord Avenue. The State Route 4 Bypass Authority (“Authority”) will then further extend John Muir Parkway to Briones Valley Road, as a frontage road parallel to the State Route 4 Bypass Segment 3 (“Bypass”), to replace Concord Avenue as it is removed by the Bypass in this area.

The John Muir Parkway Extension/Foothill Drive-Phase I, CIP Project No. 336-31640 qualifies for the Proposition 1B local transportation funding. To receive the 2007/08 FY allocation, it is necessary to approve a plan for use of these funds for the project and request disbursement from the State.

FISCAL IMPACT
The project budget must be amended to reflect the new funding source. Proposition 1B funding in the amount of $786,635, for this project will reduce the need for Roadway Facility Fees as shown below:

Project Funding 2007/08
Original Budget Amended Budget Difference
Facilities Fees $2,101,000 $1,314,365 $ -(786,635)
Development Contribution $ 500,000 $ 500,000 $ -0-
Vasco Road Reimbursement $ 225,000 $ 225,000 $ -0-
Proposition 1B $ -0- $ 786,635 $ 786,635
Total Project Funding Budget $2,826,000 $2,826,000 $ -0-

The FY 2007/08 allocation of funds by the State represents approximately 40% of the city/county local share of the total bonds proceeds. Future year’s allocations will be dependent upon the state budget, though is required to be allocated by June 30, 2012.
