Preamble
Substitute Motion by:

Directors Garcia, Bonin, Solis and Hahn

Related to Item 38: Measure M Master Guidelines Highway Subfunds

The Measure M Master Guidelines presented in June 2017 define Multi-Year Programs Highway Subfund Projects in a manner that prioritizes the movement of private automobiles over all other modes of transportation.
In 2014, the Metro Board of Directors unanimously adopted a countywide "Complete Streets" policy, the goal of which is to demonstrate Metro's "ongoing commitment to improving mobility in the region and ensuring that streets form a comprehensive and integrated transportation network promoting safe and convenient travel for all users while preserving flexibility, recognizing community context, and using design guidelines and standards that support best practices." The policy further laid out goals to "improve safety for all users on the transportation network" and to "establish active transportation improvements as integral elements of the countywide transportation system." The approval of Measure M provides an opportunity to meaningfully implement this policy as part of ongoing efforts to improve mobility, access, and safety throughout the county transportation network.
