Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost
There is no Net County Cost associated with this agenda item.  Transportation Division (Transportation) programed CTA 13 008 grant funds within the 2014 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) as part of the Tahoe Environmental Improvement Program section and within the Fiscal Year (FY) 14/15 budget.
 
Background
At the January 28, 2014, Board of Supervisors (Board) meeting, the Board adopted Resolution 005-2014 (Legistar #14-0005) to support the request for Transportation regarding site improvement grant funding from the California Tahoe Conservancy (CTC) related to the Tahoe Basin Environmental Improvement Program stating that the County supports the assurances of the Programs; the County agrees to implement the Project in a manner consistent with the Programs' objectives; the County agrees to manage and maintain the Project over its twenty-year (20) life; and, the County supports the request to the CTC for funding the proposed work in the Tahoe Basin.  Pursuant to this adoption, Transportation submitted a Site Improvement Grant request to the CTC for the Lake Tahoe Boulevard Erosion Control/Stream Environment Zone Projects (Projects) (CIP Nos. 95163/95175) in the amount of $211,613.  The CTC Governing Board approved the Site Improvement Grant Agreement CTA 13 008 (Agreement) requested for the Projects at its March 20, 2014 meeting.  The following is a brief synopsis of the Projects:
 
The Projects area is located in eastern El Dorado County, in the southern portion of the Lake Tahoe Basin, extending approximately one to three miles west of the "Y" intersection of US Highway 50 and State Route 89, along Lake Tahoe Boulevard and bordered by D Street/Viking Road to the northeast and Clear View Drive to the southwest.  The proposed Projects are designed to treat direct discharges of storm water runoff to surface waters by infiltrating and treating the storm water runoff within the right-of-way (ROW) on existing roadways that currently discharges directly into Angora Creek.  The Projects' design incorporates infiltrating sediment capturing drainage structures to reduce the volume of storm water runoff and reduce the volume of fine and coarse sediments entering Lake Tahoe and its tributaries.  The Projects will also stabilize eroding slopes and ditches within the ROW with revegetation and rock.  In addition, the Projects will reduce impervious coverage in a stream environment zone.
 
Reason for Recommendation
This recommended action will allow Transportation to receive $211,613 of State revenue through the CTC, which will be programed within the 2014 CIP Budget for the construction activities for the Lake Tahoe Erosion Control/Stream Environment Zone Projects.

2. The Clerk will return all five (5) partially executed original sets and a certified copy of the Minute Order to Transportation for CTC review and approval.
