RECOMMENDATION
Adopt a Resolution approving a plan for the use of the 2008/09 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 February 26, 2008, by Resolution No. 2008-34, City Council approved a plan for the use of 2007-08 Proposition1B funds for the John Muir Parkway Extension/Foothill Drive-Phase I, CIP Project No. 336-31640.

On May 27, 2008, by Resolution No. 2008-137, City Council adopted the City’s 2008/09 – 2012/13 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. This includes $2 billion for cities and counties to fund the maintenance and improvement of local transportation facilities. As part of the 2007/08 state budget allocation, Brentwood received $786,635, based on population. Further legislation allocated $187 million in funds to local cities for the 2008/09 Fiscal Year (”FY”). Brentwood’s share for the current 2008/09 FY amounts to $727,068. To receive disbursement of these additional 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 as well as report on the status of the 2007/08 allocation and project.

The John Muir Parkway Extension/Foothill Drive-Phase I, CIP 336-31640 is currently included within the previously approved 2008/09-2012/2013 CIP Budget. Funding for this project is from a combination of facility fees, development contributions and previous State Proposition 1B allocation. 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 qualified for the 2007/08 Proposition 1B local transportation funding, the project is currently at 100% design with bidding planned for early 2009. To receive the 2008/09 FY allocation, it is necessary to approve a plan for use of these additional 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 $727,068, for this project will reduce the need for Roadway Facility Fees as shown below:

Project Funding 2008/09
Original Budget Amended Budget Difference
Facilities Fees $2,304,365 $1,577,297 $ -(727,068)
Development Contribution $ 500,000 $ 500,000 $ -0-
Proposition 1B $ 786,635 $1,513,703 $ 727,068
Total Project Funding Budget $2,826,000 $2,826,000 $ -0-

Future year’s allocations will be dependent upon the state budget, though is required to be allocated by June 30, 2012.
