REGULAR BOARD MEETING

Subject

SUBJECT:                     SUBSTITUTE MOTION BY HAHN, BUTTS AND GARCIA REGARDING

MEASURE M REVISED LOCAL RETURN GUIDELINES

 

Preamble

Subsitute Motion by:

 

DIRECTORS HAHN, BUTTS and GARCIA

 

Relating to Item 38: File ID 2017-0280

 

Measure M Revised Local Return Guidelines

 

The Multi-Year Highway Subfunds in Measure M were created so that our County’s residents, cities, and respective subregions could fund projects that would provide congestion relief.

 

However, the proposed Measure M Guidelines create a one-mile restriction on projects eligible for funding under the “Highway Efficiency and Operational Improvements” definition. This one-mile boundary creates an undue burden and restrictions on cities and communities that would benefit greatly by available funds to improve major arterials and highways. In the South Bay, this restriction completely disqualifies cities like Lomita, Hermosa Beach, Palos Verdes Estates, and Rancho Palos Verdes from accessing these funds. In the Gateway, this restriction limits access to these funds for cities like Signal Hill, Whittier, Montebello, and La Mirada.

 

It should be the Board’s goal to increase access to these funds so that we can improve regional mobility, air quality, traffic flow and safety on both major and minor arterials, and improve our key roads that our residents rely on daily.

Title

WE THEREFORE MOVE TO AMEND the Measure M Guidelines to allow for consideration of projects that fall outside of the “1 mile restriction” in the Highway Operational Improvement Sub-funds Category on a case-by-case basis. The process should be included in the administrative procedures for Multi-year Subregional Programs.
