Purchase of Replacement FTA Section 5310 Van (Peggy Arnest) [APPROVE]

Summary:  Fresno COG purchased a commercial van for Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission (FEOC) in April 2016 with FTA Section 5310 funds to transport disabled and elderly persons.  This van, driven by an FEOC employee, was in an accident on October 27, 2017 after which it was deemed to be a total loss by FEOC’s vehicle insurance provider Nonprofits Insurance Alliance of CA. 

Nonprofits Insurance Alliance of CA has offered FEOC a settlement of $32,473.16.  Creative Bus Sales has estimated the cost to replace the van at $45,122. FEOC has approved the replacement vehicle design and quote and has agreed to pay the difference of $12,648.84. Fresno COG shall order a new van from Creative Bus Sales and have it delivered to FEOC at no additional cost to Fresno COG. FEOC has agreed to insure, maintain and operate the replacement van per the provisions of agreement FTA CA-16-X70.

Action:  Staff recommends TTC and PAC approve Fresno COG ordering a new van and having it delivered to FEOC at no cost to Fresno COG.

Circuit Planner and Circuit Engineer Report (Meg Prince) [INFORMATION]

Summary: One-on-one meetings with each of the smaller cities (population under 50,000) by both the Circuit Planning Team (VRPA) and Circuit Engineering Team (Willdan) to identify project needs and activities, concluded in October. Based on the feedback received at those meetings, more than 40 planning and engineering-related projects were identified. The consulting firms have completed prioritization criteria for both types of projects (planning and engineering) and ranked the projects based on the resulting scores. Both the Circuit Planner and Circuit Engineer have begun work on the top scored projects.

The teams will move through the list from top to bottom, working on up to three projects at a time (concurrently). Additional projects will be added to the bottom, per ranking, as projects are completed. It is important to note that this list is fluid and is intended to provide general direction for the teams. Throughout the process, this list may change, as priorities and/or time sensitive projects require attention amongst the agencies.

Below is an update on each of the circuit planning and engineering projects that are currently active. Please note that activities that are completed, considered inactive, currently on the wait list or placed on hold, by their respective agency, are not included below. 

Current planning-related projects include:

  1. City of Fowler – Golden State Realignment Study Phase 2. Identifying potential funding sources and other resources for longer-term actions needed in the Phase 2 Golden State Boulevard Realignment and Design Study.
  2. City of Orange Cove – Assistance with grant applications for bicycle and pedestrian projects.

Current engineering-related projects include:

  1. City of Reedley – Assistance with CMAQ Lifeline Application.

A couple of projects are pending additional information before moving forward. More updates will be provided next month. 

Staff can provide details on the status of individual projects, as requested. Please contact Meg Prince at (559) 233-4148 Ext. 203 with any questions, comments or concerns regarding either the circuit planning or circuit engineering programs, or via email at

Action: Information only. Direction may be provided at the discretion of the Committee.

Obligational Authority Delivery (Jennifer Soliz) [INFORMATION]

Summary: On April 3, 2017, Fresno COG submitted the Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2016-17 Obligation Plan to Caltrans Local Assistance.  This plan documents Fresno COG’s estimated schedule for project and fund delivery for FFY 2016-17 (October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017). 

Total obligational authority (OA) for all federal funding sources in FFY 2016-17 would have been $23,754,620; however, last year’s OA was over delivered by $1,480,350, so that amount was deducted from this year’s OA target.  In addition, there is an estimated FFY 2017 oversight adjustment of $515,453 based on the FFY 2017 advance apportionments and is also subtracted from this year’s OA, leaving $21,758,817 as the projected FFY 2016-17 OA target.

The FFY ended on September 30, 2015 and Fresno COG’s local agencies delivered $26,306,608 worth of projects for the Congestion Mitigation & Air Quality Program (CMAQ) and the Regional Surface Transportation Program (RSTP). Enclosed is the final OA delivery report from Caltrans. This report indicates that the Fresno County region was successful in delivering 120.9 percent of the RSTP and CMAQ OA delivery target assigned to our region, over delivering by $3,060,500.  The balance will carry over to the next FFY giving the Fresno County region a head start in delivery.  Fresno COG staff is confident that local agencies will continue to meet their OA target.

Fresno COG would like to thank all project sponsors, city and county staff and Caltrans Local Assistance staff for their hard work and collaboration in this regional effort.

Action: Information only.  Direction may be provided at the discretion of the Committee.

California Transportation Commission 2017 Annual Report (Jennifer Soliz) [INFORMATION]

Summary: As required under Government Code Section 14535 and Section 9795, the California Transportation Commission’s (Commission) 2017 Annual Report was presented to the Legislature in December. This report summarizes the Commission’s accomplishments in the past year and offers specific recommendations for the Legislature to consider. These recommendations include addressing impacts from disruptive transportation technologies, promoting effective partnerships to improve the relationship between the state and its partners, as well as important legacy recommendations that have yet to be enacted from previous annual reports but are still relevant to address the state’s transportation needs.  

The report indicates that during fiscal year (FY) 2016-17, the Commission allocated more than $5.2 billion in state and federal transportation funding, helping to generate almost 94,000 private and public sector jobs and contributing to a construction program in excess of $9.2 billion in state-administered construction contracts.  The commission adopted the 2018 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) guidelines and approved the STIP fund estimate with $2.2 billion in new funding available for high priority highway, rail, transit, bicycle and pedestrian projects over the next five years. The Commission also adopted the 2017 Active Transportation Program (ATP), programming $264 million to 122 projects.

This past year, the Legislature passed and the Governor signed Senate Bill (SB) 1, also known as the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, increasing transportation funding and instituting much-needed reforms to improve accountability, transparency and efficiency. Enclosed is the California Transportation Commission's 2017 Annual Report summary.  An electronic copy of the entire 2017 Annual Report can also be found on the Commission’s website at

Action:  Information only. Direction may be provided at the discretion of the Committee.

2019 Active Transportation Program Cycle 4 Update (Jennifer Soliz) [INFORMATION]

Summary:  Senate Bill 99 (Chapter 359, Statutes of 2013) and Assembly Bill 101 (Chapter 354, Statutes of 2013) created the Active Transportation Program (ATP) to encourage active transportation modes. The ATP consolidated various transportation programs into a single program and was originally funded at about $123 million a year from a combination of state and federal funds. Most recently, Senate Bill 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 (Chapter 20, Statutes of 2017) added approximately $100 million per year to the ATP. This will nearly double available funds for the Active Transportation Program.

Statewide guidelines for the 2019 ATP Cycle 4 are being developed. The California Transportation Commission anticipates adopting the guidelines and fund estimates in March 2018. More information on the 2019 ATP can be found on the Commission’s website at

Regional 2019 ATP Cycle 4 workshops will kick off early next month.  For any questions regarding the 2019 ATP, please contact Jennifer Soliz at 559-233-4148 ext. 223 or

Draft Fresno County Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan Release (Brenda Veenendaal) [INFORMATION]

Summary:  The Draft Fresno County Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan Update (ALUCP) will be released for public review and comment on January 10, 2018 on Fresno COG's website at

An administrative draft was reviewed in December by Fresno COG staff working with the Fresno County Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC) and the project development team overseeing the process. All comments and edits have been incorporated into the latest document.

In 2017, Fresno COG received funding from the Department of Transportation's State Aeronautics program to develop a unified ALUCP. This plan combines all eight existing airport compatibility plans into one document, adding an additional chapter to address the land-use compatibility issues and requirements from the Lemoore Naval Air Station. Many of the adopted Fresno Airport Land Use Compatibility Policy Plans are out-of-date, with some dating back to 1983, and must be brought into compliance with the State Aeronautics Act. It is crucial to provide updated, unified tools for consistency review findings on plans and projects adjacent to Fresno County’s airports. The plan is expected to be completed in late 2018.

The ALUC reviews plans and projects, determining land-use consistency with ALUCP for noise, safety, airspace protection, avigation easement and protection. ALUC consistency reviews of land uses and land-use changes, rezoning applications, zoning ordinance text amendments, airport master plans and building regulations proposed are required when plans or projects are located within airport influence areas.

Environmental Justice Collaborative Problem-Solving Program Fiscal Year 2018 Request for Proposals (Trai Her-Cole) [INFORMATION]

Summary: Fiscal year 2018 Request for Proposals (RFPs) for the Environmental Justice Collaborative Problem-Solving Cooperative Agreement Program. The RFPs will close on February 16, 2018. The Environmental Justice Collaborative Problem-Solving (EJCPS) Cooperative Agreement Program provides funding to support community-based organizations in their efforts to collaborate and partner with local stakeholder groups (e.g., local businesses and industry, local government, medical providers, and academia) as they develop and implement solutions that address environmental and/or public health issues for underserved communities. For purposes of this announcement, the term “underserved community” refers to a community with environmental justice concerns and/or vulnerable populations, including minority, low income, rural, tribal, and indigenous populations. Eligible projects must demonstrate use of the Environmental Justice Collaborative Problem-Solving Model to support their collaborative efforts during the project period. Applying organizations should have a direct connection to the underserved community impacted by the environmental harms and risks detailed in the work plan. 

SPECIAL CONSIDERATION: For the 2018 opportunity, the EJCPS program will give special consideration to high ranking proposals to be performed in rural areas as defined by the program. Rural areas, for the purposes of this competition, are defined as local areas with populations of 50,000 or less that have limited access to public or private resources commonly found in metropolitan areas.

State of Good Repair (Les Beshears) [APPROVE]

Summary:  The State Controller has released estimates for the SB 1 State of Good Repair program and Caltrans has issued guidelines. The program will work similarly to the State Transit Assistance program that Fresno COG already administers; however, it will be restricted to transit capital projects only and there are additional reporting requirements. 

Funding to the Fresno County region for the first year is estimated to be $1,517,695.  Transit operators are required to submit an authorization resolution, certifications and assurances of compliance and a list of eligible projects to Caltrans by January 31, 2018.  In subsequent years all administration will be through the Metropolitan Planning Organization (Fresno COG) but in this first year, transit operators are allowed to submit directly to Caltrans.  Failure to meet the January 31 deadline could result in a loss of funds.

Action:  Authorize Resolution 2018-01 designating the Fresno COG Executive Director as grant administrator for the SB1 State of Good Repair program.

Federal Demonstration Fund Repurposing (Les Beshears) [APPROVE]

Summary:  In 2016, Caltrans and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) identified old, inactive earmark grants and allowed agencies to “repurpose” unencumbered balances.  Caltrans identified $1.891 million in unobligated federal demonstration funds available for repurposing that was originally dedicated to State Route (SR) 180.

Consistent with the earmark’s original intent, the Board adopted resolution 2016-21 requesting that Caltrans and FHWA program the funding on the segment of SR 180 now under construction. Caltrans and FHWA subsequently approved this choice; however, when Caltrans listed the project, bids came in higher than anticipated. Rather than rebid the contract in a potentially inflationary environment, staff proposed that Caltrans use a combination of State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) G12 and contingency reserved in the Measure C cooperative agreements to accept the bid and begin construction. 

When staff produced the recently adopted Measure C Regional Transportation Plan, this strategy was calibrated into the plan assumptions to restore the Measure’s contingency, resulting in minimal local Measure funds. Caltrans now requests that Fresno COG authorize drawing down the federal funds through a memorandum of understanding (MOU).

Action:  Authorize the Executive Director to execute a MOU with Caltrans providing $1.891 million in federal demonstration funds to SR 180 – Trimmer to Frankwood.

Fresno County Regional Active Transportation Plan Negative Declaration Adoption (Peggy Arnest) [APPROVE]

Summary:  Fresno COG developed a Regional Active Transportation Plan (R-ATP) with the intent of providing a comprehensive document outlining the future of walking and bicycling in Fresno County.  The R-ATP was created in coordination with Fresno COG’s member agencies, the general public and stakeholder groups such as local bicycling groups, walking advocates, educational institutions and disadvantaged communities.

The R-ATP is intended to help Fresno COG’s member agencies better compete for funding sources that support ATPs and to satisfy California Transportation Commission (CTC) requirements. The cities of Clovis, Fresno, Selma and Coalinga have recently prepared or will soon complete their own ATPs; conclusions from those plans are incorporated into this R-ATP. Fresno COG’s 12 other member agencies can rely on the R-ATP to satisfy CTC requirements.

One of the project's main goals is to create a network of safe and attractive trails, sidewalks and bikeways that connect Fresno County residents to key destinations -- especially local schools, parks and transit. The networks include shared-use paths, bike lanes and routes, sidewalks and crosswalk improvements. Other goals are to create a network of regional bikeways that allow bicyclists to safely ride between cities and other regional destinations, and to increase regional walking and bicycling trips by creating user-friendly facilities. Details of each jurisdiction’s networks are presented in R-ATP Chapters 6 to 17.  The networks were developed with the following primary considerations:

  • Connectivity to key destinations, especially schools, parks and transit
  • Collision history
  • Previous plans
  • Connections to adjacent jurisdictions’ networks
  • Public comment

Obtaining resident input was an important part of R-ATP development. The public helped identify recommended improvements to bicycling and walking facilities as well as project priorities. Participation was solicited through:

  • Interactive workshops held in early June in each city early in the planning process with city staff, local schools, local interest groups and the public;
  • An online crowdsourced interactive map, with both English and Spanish captions;
  • Outreach via email and local community groups;
  • Inclusion of the R-ATP in workshops held across the county to receive input on the development of a new Fresno COG Regional Transportation Plan (RTP);
  • A website hosted by Fresno COG to communicate the project schedule, share project documents and provide general information about the plan process; and
  • Workshops arranged by each city in early August to obtain public input on recommended networks.

Because the complete R-ATP is so large, this link is provided for access to the document:

The first 5 chapters contain:

  1. Introduction
  2. Relationship to other plans and policies
  3. Existing conditions
  4. Planned networks and program
  5. Implementation

Chapters 6–17 are devoted to each jurisdiction's status and future plans.  Chapter 18 includes content from cities with current ATPs. The Appendix contains:

  1. Plan conformance with the CTC's ATP guidelines
  2. Public participation
  3. Relationship to state and federal plans and policies
  4. Project priorities and cost estimates
  5. Funding sources
  6. Jurisdictional resolutions adopting the plan*

* Jurisdiction resolutions are one of the ATP components required by the CTC.  Fresno COG staff will follow up with city and county staff on this matter.

Fresno COG has prepared a Program Initial Study/Negative Declaration, in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for the Fresno County R-ATP. The R-ATP contains various programs, policies and recommendations that pertain to bicycle and pedestrian facilities in Fresno County. Projects are identified at a conceptual level for the Fresno County R-APT. Specific development is not being proposed under the regional plan and adoption of the CEQA document would not authorize any development.

Action:  Staff recommends adopting the Negative Declaration for the Fresno County Regional Active Transportation Plan through Resolution 2018-03.

Fresno County Regional Active Transportation Plan Approval (Peggy Arnest) [APPROVE]

Summary:  A description of the Fresno County Regional Active Transportation Plan (ATP) activities is included in the summary above. The Regional ATP includes all the elements required by the California Transportation Commission for ATPs and a separate chapter for the County and each of the 11 cities involved. Both the draft plan and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) document were released for a 39-day comment period.

Action:  Staff recommends approving Resolution 2018-04, adopting the Fresno County Regional Active Transportation Plan.

Measure C Transit Oriented Infrastructure for In-fill Program (TOD) Program Cycle VI Call for Project (Kristine Cai/Trai-Her-Cole) (Information)

Summary: Measure C's Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Program was established to boost transit ridership and encourage transit-supportive land use, such as higher-density development and mixed uses. TOD program projects serve as models that reduce vehicle trips, improve air quality and provide access to physical activity opportunities through integrated land use and transportation.

The TOD program is estimated to receive $16.9 million over its 20-year lifespan, with approximately $864,880 is accrued annually. More than $6 million has been granted to projects for the last five funding cycles since 2012. In summer 2017, both the Fresno COG Policy Board and the Fresno County Transportation Authority Board approved the revised TOD program guidelines that allow the jurisdictions from the entire county to compete for the funding. The revised TOD Program Policies and Guidelines are attached for your reference.

The TOD program Cycle VI call for projects opens on January 12, 2018, and applications are due on February 28, 2018. There is $1,500,000 available for Cycle VI. Attached is the application package.

Action: Information only. Direction can be provided at the Committee's discretion.
