Regional policy emphasis for improved system performance & greater "people" mobility. Allocate ISTEA funding among the three major functional groups as follows: I. Preserve the Existing System: 25% H. Improve Performance of Existing System: 35% III. Develop New Capacity for Movement of People & Goods: 40% Discussed issue of combining categories II&III;recommended maintaining distinctions thru FY93 evaluation process. GMA & CAA (Clean Air Act) planning requirements suggest need to monitor difference -- could be folded together later if not found relevant. 2. Regional policy emphasis for project evaluation criteria. Use adopted evaluation criteria with following weights to be applied in technical review of projects: CRITERIA PERCENTAGE WEIGHT A. Support Transportation Enhancement 10% B. Support Adopted Regional Growth & Transp. Policies 30% C. Improve Air Quality 10% D. Minimize Negative & Maximize Positive Environmental, Energy & Social Impacts = 20% E. Support Adopted Regional Economic Strategies 10% F. Support Multi-modal Projects, Intergovernmental Coordination & Innovative Projects 20% Total: 100% 3. Modal emphasis supports Vision 2020 policy focus towards more transit & additional "enhancement" type projects. For FY93, committee recommended: heaviest emphasis on transit mobility;provide additional funding for"enhancements"; assure continuation of basic level of "preservation" for roads. TARGET PERCENTAGE FUNDING ALLOCATION IF MIXED ALL SOURCES: • Enhancements: equivalent of 10% off top from STP & CMAQ funds • Roads: equivalent of 25% of balance of STP/CMAQ + FTA funds c, • Transit: equivalent of 75% of balance of STP/CMAQ + FTA funds Note:Actual programming of projects by source of funds to achieve above split requires shifting fund sources since FTA funds must go for transit purposes until full compliance with ADA is achieved. 4. Maintain flexibility & opportunity for future new projects: FY93 project review should control total level of design funds to be approved such that at least 50% of future years' funding will be available for new ISTEA applications. kc5-2\100892.TPB Discussion Draft (10/5192 Technical Steering Committee) TIP Development Process for 1993 Amendment PSRC Staff Applications In )i Pre-Priority Screening Policy Emphasis for Project •Regional/Countywide Objectives Evaluation Criteria •Ready for Obligation PSRC Staff Staff Evaluation Group V Group into: Evaluate/Prioritize by: Roads II Roads III Transit Transit II Enhancements III A B C D E F.
