Body

DISCUSSION/BACKGROUND

The CIP is the long-range plan for all individual capital improvement projects, including cost estimates, schedules and funding sources.  It provides strategic direction for capital projects over a current year, 5-, 10- and 20-Year horizon.  The CIP is used as a planning tool, and is updated annually as new information becomes available regarding Board priorities, funding sources, project cost estimates and timing.

 

In order to ensure that growth consistent with the General Plan does not exceed available roadway capacity, the County is required to implement General Plan Policy TC-Xb and Implementation Measure TC-AGeneral Plan Policy TC-Xb and Implementation Measure TC-A require the County to prepare and adopt an annual CIP for the West Slope Road/Bridge Program specifying expenditures for roadway improvements within the next 10 years.

 

General Plan Policy TC-Xb and Implementation Measure TC-A also require a Major CIP and Traffic Impact Mitigation (TIM) Fee Program update every five years, in line with the major review of the General Plan, specifying expenditures for roadway improvements within the next 20 years.  The Major Update to the CIP and TIM Fee Program was completed in December, 2016.  An Annual Update to the TIM Fee Program is planned for May, 2019. 

 

The proposed 2019 CIP Book includes the following five programs:

                     West Slope Road/Bridge CIP

                     Tahoe Environmental Improvement Program

                     Airport Capital Improvement Program

                     Transportation Facilities Improvement Program

                     Capital Overlay and Rehabilitation Program

 

Taking into consideration all five programs, the goals for the 2019 CIP Book are to:

1) Include new projects, or changes to existing projects, as directed by the Board.

2) Make any other necessary revisions per Board direction.

 

Each program proposed for inclusion in the 2019 CIP Book is described in Attachment A.  Attachment A also provides a description of each of the new projects proposed for the 2019 CIP Book.

 

Projects listed in Attachment B have had changes in construction start date, or cost changes of over $100,000 since the 2018 CIP was adopted in June, 2018.  Cost or schedule modifications have been made as a result of refinements made during the FY 2019-20 budget process.  Attachment B also includes new projects proposed for the 2018 and 2019 CIP.  Staff recommends the Board direct staff to include the changes specified in Attachment B in the 2019 CIP Book. 

 

Staff will return to the Board for adoption of the 2019 CIP book in Septemter 2019.

The Board could choose to prioritize projects that differ from staff’s recommendation.
