TAMC Board Highlights

August 26, 2020

TAMC Board Receives Revised Measure X Revenue Forecasts  

The Transportation Agency Board of Directors learned that using an initial conservative estimate of $20 million to estimate Measure X annual revenues proved to be wise decision during a staff presentation on the revised revenue forecast.  Actual Measure X revenues that were as high as $30.5 million in fiscal year 2018/19 fell to $23.5 million in fiscal year 2019/20 due to the impacts of COVID-19.  The most recent forecast for the next three years estimates revenues will bounce back to between $26.7 million to $27.4 million annually.

This projection combined with the Board’s decision to continue programming Measure X funds to match the initial estimate of $20 million per year, still provides full funding for near-term Measure X projects as programmed in the 2019 Integrated Funding Plan.

These priority projects include the Imjin Road Widening project, which uses $17 million of Measure X funds as match to a $19 million SB1 Local Partnership Program grant, the Highway 218 Segment of the Fort Ord Regional Trail and Greenway, which uses $1.0 million of Measure X funds as a match to a $9.2 million Active Transportation Program grant, and the State Route 156 / Castroville Boulevard project, pending receipt of $20 million of grant funds with $2.5 million of Measure X as match.

Measure X Cash Flow – August 2020 Revision

TAMC Board Approves Competitive Grand Funding for Local Projects  

The TAMC Board of Directors approved nearly $11.39 million for a three-year competitive grants program to fund local transportation projects.  The resolution follow’s the Board’s decision to fund allocations for a new round of competitive funds in March.

The approval of the resolution will fund the following projects through the competitive grant program for fiscal years 2020/21 through 2022/23:

  • Salinas – Boronda Road Congestion Relief Project – $4,000,000
  • Salinas – Bardin Road Safe Routes to School – $1,800,000
  • King City – Complete Streets Downtown Streetscape – $950,000
  • Monterey – Traffic System, Pedestrian/Bike Upgrades – $1,680,000
  • Salinas – Pedestrian Crossing Enhancements – $545,000
  • Pacific Grove – Point Pinos Trail Project – $382,000

CSUMB Student Appointed to the Measure X Citizens Oversight Committee

The TAMC Board of Director appointed Cal State University, Monterey Bay student, Natalie Olivas to serve as the alternate youth representative on the Measure X Citizens Oversight Committee. Her appointment fills a long-standing vacancy on the committee that has existed since members were appointed by the TAMC Board in 2017.

Members of the Citizens Oversight Committee represent a diverse range of community interests to assure that a broad range of geographic and stakeholder interests on represented on the committee. Their duty is to ensure that Measure X funds are spent according to the terms of the Measure X Transportation Safety & Investment Plan. Youth representation on the committee is one of the additional appointments the Board deemed to be important to assure that a broad range of geographic and stakeholders’ interests are represented.

The Plan, approved by voters in November 2016, is anticipated to generate an estimated $600 million over 30 years for transportation projects & programs in Monterey County.

 


RFQ: State Legislative Assistance

TAMC seeks a state legislative analyst/ advocate to provide professional services in the areas of legislative and regulatory advocacy and governmental affairs, including securing state transportation funding, pursuing and/or testifying on legislation, and intergovernmental coordination. This work includes presentations at TAMC Board meetings and Executive Committee meetings, as requested, and assistance in setting up meetings with state legislators and transportation experts in Sacramento or in Monterey County, as appropriate. The work also includes the development of and regular updating of a state legislative bill list and assistance in coordinating the development of an annual legislative program, in coordination with local partner agencies. The TAMC Board approved the RFQ at its August 26 meeting.

Submittals are due September 17, 2020 at 12:00 noon Pacific Time.
