01-12-1994 .I� 1 F LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION 1 MEETING 2 WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 12, 1994 3 The following is the Agenda for the Las Cruces Metropolitan 4 Planning Organization' s Policy Committee Meeting held on Wednesday, January 12, 1994, at 7 : 00 p.m. , in the Las Cruces 5 City Council Chambers, 200 North Church Street, Las Cruces, New Mexico. 6 MEMBERS PRESENT: Ray Luchini , Chairman (Dona Ana County) Q Edward Southworth (Town of Mesilla) Nelson Clayshulte (Town of Mesilla) 8 Herculano Ferralez (City of Las Cruces) Tommy Tomlin (City of Las Cruces) 9 John Haltom (City of Las Cruces) Kenneth Miyagashima (Dona Ana County) 10 MEMBERS ABSENT: Michael Cadena (Town of Mesilla) 11 STAFF PRESENT: Brian Denmark, MPO Officer 12 Michael Parks , City Planning David Carpenter, City Planning 13 Tim Russ, Roadrunner Transit Director Dale Kemp, Transit Analyst 14 Minerva Sanchez , Recording Secretary 15 CALL TO ORDER 16 Mr. Luchini called the meeting to order at 7 : 00 p.m. There was a quorum. 17 REVIEW OF MINUTES 18 Mr. Luchini said, has everyone had a chance to review the 19 minutes of the last meeting . 20 Mr. Haltom said, move to accept the minutes as presented. Mr. Miyagishima seconded. Mr. Luchini said, all those in 21 favor of accepting the minutes as submitted, say aye . Any opposed? The minutes were accepted with a vote of 6-0-1 (6 22 members in favor; 0 opposed, and Mr. Southworth voted to abstain since he was not present at the meeting) . 23 NEW BUSINESS 24 Mr. Luchini said, let ' s proceed to New Business : 25 Consideration of a resolution to approve the City of Las Cruces/Roadrunner Transit ADA Paratransit Plan for 1994 as 26 required by UMPTA(FTA)/FHWA joint planning regulation- Resolution 94-001 . 27 Mr. Haltom said, move for approval of Resolution 94-001 . Mr. 28 Southworth seconded. Mr. Luchini said, okay, it ' s been moved and seconded, do we have any discussion. 29 Mr. Ferralez said, Mr. Chairman, I have just one question. 301 On the suggestion that has been made to extend the transit route within the City, is this entirely separate from that 31 issue? 32 Mr. Russ said, that ' s correct . These are two separate issues . The only thing that I put in this, realizing when I started preparing this in December, I have to address other issues including items that may affect the service . Here I i i�i LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION-JANUARY 12, 1994 1 2 8 4 made reference to the fact that the Council was looking at a possibility of expanding the service . Because of the timing 5 of this, I 'm going to leave it at that within the report because it will look like a feather in our cap on my next 6 update; that we 've actually done it . I don't want to go back in and change it at this time . 7 Mr. Luchini said, any other comments? If not, all those in 8 favor say aye . Any opposed? The motion passed unanimously. 9 Mr. Luchini said, okay, Review of Technical Advisory Committee ' s Recommendation for the FY 1994-95 Annual Element 10 & Transportation Improvement Program. 11 Mr. Denmark said, Mr. Chairman, we have passed out copies of the draft Annual Element and Transportation Improvement 12 Program. Since the Technical Advisory Committee took action on this particular issue last Thursday, we were unable to 13 Present that within your packet, however we do have plenty of time to review the AE/TIP and take formal action at next 14 month ' s meeting. What the MPO staff is recommending this year in accordance with ISTEA is to make the Annual Element 15 and TIP more realistic; meaning that our financial figures have to be a little bit more in line with what we 've been 16 receiving from the State and/or from the Federal government in the past. So what the TAC has done is gone through the 17 entire list that currently exists and then eliminated or moved those particular projects . As indicated, on the first 18 page, the shaded area represents projects that are currently on the State ' s Transportation Improvement Program. For 19 example, the number one project last year that the MPO endorsed was the Mesa Grande Overpass; it is currently in 20 line for design monies Fiscal Year 1994-95 . The same is true for Lohman in 1995-96 . What the TAC has done was add 21 additional projects that they felt were priorities to provide some type of buffer in case there were changes at the State 22 Highway Commission level . Obviously, there is a substantial difference over last year' s submittal . If you' ll notice, 23 there ' s only two pages now for construction projects and enhancement projects, where in the past we 've had five or six 24 pages, and up to even eight pages . MPO staff also wanted to recommend that those projects either moved or eliminated 25 would be essentially still in existence . That means we 've created an MPO program in which the Annual Element, the TIP, 26 and a list of all the other outstanding projects would be accummulated within that listing. This is because there are 27 projects that are possibly eligible for co-op funding, House Memorial , or some other form of legislative action that might 28 occur during the fiscal year. Staff needs the ability to have that list and the priority of that list to present to 29 whatever governmental entity it impacts . This list is also within your document towards the back. I believe it starts 301on page six. Those projects that were rated last year, for example the Walnut project, although there ' s not enough money 81 available for 1994-95, that doesn 't mean that there might not be moneys through some other means . That is something that 82 is a change over previous years . In the past we have included all projects even though they might not be eligible for state or federal moneys, however they were on the list . ISTEA is pretty clear to the fact that we don' t have to list i 2 i�i 1 LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION-JANUARY 12, 1994 1 2 8 those particular projects . We should be listing only 4 priority projects that are STP funded, enhancement funded, highway funded, and things of that nature . That' s why 5 there ' s a reduction. However, we do realize that they are important and they should be listed somewhere so that they 6 can be pulled out and used as a resource . That ' s why we 've created this MPO program. Things to think about for next 7 month are obviously the list itself that the TAC has recommended to you all . The second thing would be 8 enhancement projects . There ' s only one enhancement project listed for next year. That ' s the bus pull off lanes that are 9 part of the University Avenue Corridor Plan and a part of the Transit Plan. We do know that there are some City 10 enhancement projects that have been mentioned and we will be bringing those to you next month. I think that if there ' s 11 other enhancement projects that the Policy Committee is interested in incorporating into the plan, we can do that. 12 In the City, there ' s been some mention of the Depot and some of the work that might be done on that, and that might be 13 something that could be included in this document. Another issue that the MPO staff would like to recommend to the 14 Policy Committee for its consideration is combining the Mesa Grande Overpass with the US 70 Frontage Road Study. We do 15 realize that last year the MPO Policy Committee separated those to provide emphasis on the fact of Mesa Grande and its 16 importance . However, we do know that the State Highway Department is confused over that and has a problem with that 17 particular separation in projects and so does the State Highway Department. The reason is that they view it as one 18 project that will be done through a series of phases . Even though we feel that Mesa Grande is important, to them, 19 they're still viewing it as one project. So, that is something that we would recommend that you think about and 20 maybe discuss . In relationship to that, you will notice if you look at those two particular projects, there are gaps 21 that we feel might need to be included. For example, there are moneys currently within the STIP for 1996-97 and 1998-99, 22 but there ' s nothing for 1995-96, or 1997-98 or 1999-2000. However, we do know that with such a large project there 23 probably would be a need for funding--far right-of-way acquisition, and various construction phase because we don' t 24 think it ' s going to be done in one big swoop. So, that ' s something else to consider. We did mention at the last 25 meeting that the Mayor of Las Cruces made a presentation at the State Highway Commission meeting in December. The State 26 Highway Commission does feel that this is a very important project--US Highway 70--however, they view it as one project 27 and they'd like to keep it that way. So, that was our recommendation to the TAC. We do know that Mr. Southworth 28 explained to the TAC that was the emphasis of the Policy Committee, so they felt that they would leave it the way it 29 is, and that ' s why it ' s recommended as is . 30Mr. Southworth said, may I ask a question? On Mesa Grande Overpass, is there any way that you can think of to pull that 31 into the US 70 Frontage Road without losing the identification of Mesa Grande as our highest priority 32 construction project? Mr. Denmark said, they view the moneys that we ' re receiving next fiscal year as US 70 . They don't see it as Mesa Grande 3 1 LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION-JANUARY 12, 1994 1 2 8 at all . In fact, that was even brought up at the State 4 Highway Commission meeting in December; that we were receiving money, so why were we asking for more money. The 5 fact is you're right. We ' re down here reviewing it and thinking that it ' s for Mesa Grande, and they're looking at it 6 as, no, you're beginning final design for the entire project . Obviously $100, 000 doesn't cover it, so we feel we 7 should be asking for more next year so we 're including not only Mesa Grande but we 're including everything from I-25 to 8 Mesa Grande, for example . The next stage would be from Mesa Grande to Nasa Road. That would be in accordance to the plan 9 and that ' s what their concern was . 10 Mr. Luchini said, will there be any restrictions on how that money is used? 11 Mr. Denmark said, no, because to them it ' s Highway 70 . 12 Mr. Southworth said, the point, as I understand it is, that 13 three million dollars that Representative Skeen is going after isn't cross-hatched in here, and the last I heard, it 14 isn 't there . 15 Mr. Denmark said, that ' s right . 16 Mr. Southworth said, in fact, I don't where we are going to get design money because all you're showing is six million 17 dollars for construction in 1996-97 but not design any place . 18 Mr. Denmark said, that ' s our point. They 're viewing it as 19 one project. That ' s why we think there ' s a gap there . Obviously they're putting a hundred thousand out for design 20 and then we 're jumping to construction two years later--we need more money than that . What we were recommending is that 21 we try to achieve more money for next fiscal year for design but we also need money for 1995-96 because we know that not 22 going to cover all of the design costs associated with that project . Then, construction can start . We do know that the 23 first phase of construction for the frontage roads is from the Interstate to Mesa Grande . So, we think we can 24 incorporate what we feel is important into that overall phasing. We also know that there ' s gaps later on that we 're 25 going to need to fill also because of right-of-way acquisition. 26 Mr. Luchini said, you mentioned Congressman Skeen' s plan, and 27 I attended a meeting in Tulsa with the Under Secretary of Transportation. They 'd never heard anything about Skeen 28 applying for any money or any type of bill or anything. In fact, when I mentioned it to them, they were surprised to 29 hear about it. They said they didn' t have anything on their agenda about those moneys that he talked about for here . So, 301as far as they' re concerned, there ' s nothing there . 31 Mr. Haltom said, Mr. Chairman, I 'm just wondering if it ' s realistic for us to believe we 're going to get enough money $2 in 1994-95 to pay for the design. The kind of money I see them passing out versus the kind of money I see us wanting, is quite a gap. 4 i{ 1 LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION-JANUARY 12, 1994 1 2 8 Mr. Denmark said, that is a problem. They 're viewing it as a 4 phase process where the design won't be completed next fiscal . We ' ll just be able to get it started, get the bid 5 process started, and get the consultant started, then all of a sudden we 're going to be into 1995-96 . Obviously we ' re not 6 going to finish it all , so that would be our carrot to them, saying you guys started, you've got to keep going. But ? that ' s what we noticed lately in going to these State Highway Commission meetings and some of the conversations I 've had 8 with Dr. Ford is that they're viewing it a package deal . So, we 're trying to present it to them that way to where we could 9 show them that there are gaps and there ' s problems here . Clearly, a hundred thousand is not going to cover all of the 10 design. Even the Mesa Grande section, it ' s questionable how far we going to go, and we 've got right-of-way acquistion but 11 that ' s not shown either. So, originally our biggest concern was that we 're coming up with an AE/TIP but we 're on a 12 different fiscal year than the federal government is, and so by the time we 're almost going into next year ' s AE, they 're 13 still working on our last year' s AE. So, our recommendation to the TAC this year is let ' s not re-rate things . . . I mean, if 14 US 70 is still a priority, then let ' s maintain it as a priority and keep pushing on the Commission that it is a 15 Priority. And that ' s what the TAC has done . . . is left everything as a priority as it is, and they 've included 16 others such as Shalem Colony Trail . 17 Mr. Luchini said, I think it ' s wise to keep it that way. I think we 're going to lose track of everything if we keep 18 changing priorities . 19 Mr. Denmark said, we do know that they change their own documents too . They 're constantly amending every month that 20 they have a meeting, they usually do an amendment to the STIP. So, we feel that even though the shaded projects are 21 showing now as funded, that doesn't mean that we 're not possibly going to get more funding for the next fiscal year. 22 That ' s the game that has to be played. 23 Mr. Southworth said, the way it stand now, the way that I 'm looking at it, anyway, we don' t get any money at all on that 24 US 70 frontage road project until 1996-97, and presumably, that ' s when design starts because you can't start design 25 until you have some money . So, I guess I feel that ' s not a very satisfactory arrangement . 26 Mr. Tomlin said, Mr. Chairman, do we take care of that, then 27 by combining the two and putting them back together? 28 Mr. Denmark said, that was our recommendation, and the reason is because we want them to clearly understand that the 29 hundred thousand does not cover the design costs . That the point that Mr. Southworth was just stating, that really, the 301construction in 1996-97 is going to end up being design and then we 're going to have to look for right-of-way S1 acquisition, and then look for whatever else is associated with it before we 've even taken a shovel out there . 82 1 5 i LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION-JANUARY 12, 1994 1 2 8 4 What our original recommendation was to combine it together, but we 're asking for more than a hundred thousand for the 5 next fiscal year. We 're saying that ' s not enough. We know that in 1995-96, we ' re going to need some more because you're 6 showing construction by 1996-97 . So, we 're going to want more, and our goal is to have the design done by that time, 7 so that at least the construction of 1996-97 is right-of-way acquisition. 8 Mr. Tomlin said, I feel a little uncomfortable since this is 9 a project within the city limits without notifying the Council because the Council talked about this being a 10 Priority and we brought it up to the MPO. Then the MPO concurred with that concept . I think that we need to go back 11 to the Council and explain the problems that we 're having with the Highway Department. The mayor made the 12 Presentation; he was there and probably has as good a feel as any of us . And then, give direction to staff if Council 13 concurs, and we can discuss that on Monday during the Council portion of our meeting to give direction to staff to go ahead 14 and combine it. If the MPO Committee here agrees to that concept then we could save some time and let staff process 15 that after our meeting Monday; put them back together so that we can do that. We 've tried this other way. We haven' t been 16 successful . We 're going to do it their way or we 're not going to get it done at all . If this will cause them to say, 17 okay, we 're finally back to what we want to do, let ' s give them the money, then I ' ll play their silly game . So, I ' d 18 like to recommend that we go ahead and give staff that direction. The three of us can help out on Monday night to 19 get concurrence from City Council , and if they agree, and you guys agree, then we can have staff do it . 20 Mr. Southworth said, if we can do that between now and the 21 next meeting because that ' s when we have to approve this . 22 Mr. Tomlin said, we can do that on Monday at our regular Council meeting, and so that way Mr. Denmark would know, and 23 staff could process that and get it ready for the next meeting. 24 Mr. Denmark said, that ' s exactly the question Mr. Parks and I 25 have been toying with, which is the fact that issue probably would have to go back to Council . Therefore, that was the 26 direction we were kind of looking for tonight. 27 Mr. Luchini said, is everyone in agreement with that? The members concurred. 28 Mr. Southworth said, is there any way to slip some money in 29 there for 1994-95 on that project, now, having done that? 301Mr. Denmark said, we feel that we should be asking for something every year and it should be very systematic to 81 where it goes from design to right-of-way to construction of first phase, to second phase, and so forth. Obviously, it ' s 82 going to have to be done that way. I think that ' s kind of what they' re looking for. Are we going to get it, I don't i 6 i� LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION-JANUARY 12, 1994 1 2 8 4 know. We might get a portion of what we ask for, but at least we 're moving in the right direction. At least we 're 5 getting something next year which is better than not getting anything at all . 6 Mr. Luchini said, anything else? 7 Mr. Denmark said, as the Policy Committee looks through the 8 document, another enhancement project that we were talking about, for example, was the New Mexico State 28 Project and 9 some enhancement funding for that . Enhancement type projects really aren't in here, and should be added because they are a 10 different funding source . 11 Mr. Southworth said, I thought we had three of those projects that were being lumped together and approved together. 12 Mr. Parks said, it ' s the last project on page two, New Mexico 13 28/I-10 to New Mexico 292 . 14 Mr. Southworth said, okay, fine, that is in there . Good. 15 Mr. Parks said, it ' s budgeted at $86, 000 . 00 . 16 Mr. Southworth said, is that the sum of what we had. 17 Mr. Parks said, yes . 18 Mr. Haltom said, Mr. Chairman, I have a question too . On page one, Dunn Drive/Cortez to North Main, we got money from 19 the State Legislature that I thought was going to be spent during this fiscal year to improve Dunn Drive from Cortez to 20 North Main. 21 Mr. Tomlin said, we got a hundred and seven thousand, or something. 22 Mr. Denmark said, we 're designing it right now. 23 Mr. Haltom said, then why is that listed as being in fiscal 24 year 1994-95? 25 Mr. Parks said, this would be an additional amount . The current year is not shown here . 26 Mr. Haltom said, this is from Cortez to North Main? 27 Mr. Parks said, that ' s how it ' s called on the STIP. I 'm not 28 exactly sure, but we can find out and report back to you. 29 Mr. Tomlin said, I have a technical question about some of the scope of work. How specific , I ' ll look at one of the 30 projects that I 've been interested in for a long time--Valley Drive/Picacho--and it talks about design of the four lane 31 widening, and I know that it involves the scoping process, but one of the things that was not recommended to be included 32 was the traffic light at McClure and Valley Drive . I don't know where the appropriate time is to push for that to be 7 i) LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION-JANUARY 12, 1994 1 2 8 included in there in spite of the recommendation. When can 4 we do that? 5 Mr. Parks said, Councilman Tomlin, number one, when the traffic warrants a signal may be required. Part of the 6 current scoping will be a study to determine its need. Since the original proposal we, know the west side community 7 center is going in over there, and that may impact the traffic in a new way. At any rate, the conduits are being 8 put in as part of the current effort, so it ' s just a matter of erecting poles there . 9 Mr. Denmark said, the question being, the scoping report 10 we 're currently working on, hasn't been approved yet . 11 Mr. Tomlin said, I recall , the preliminary scoping report said that it ' s not going to recommend that it be put in 12 because of the warrants . I take exception to that. Now, those exceptions may be political , but also trying to access 13 that road from McClure, I have constituents that question some of the traffic warrants and that ' s another issue that 14 I 've got to bring back to the Council on Monday. I 'm questioning that, and I realize that ' s a policy question and 15 I want to know if staff ' s recommendation is based on the report that we not put the traffic light there, and I 'm here 16 to tell you that I 'm going to do all that I can to have that included in there . I don't care what the report says, 17 because I think it is in error and I take exception to that . I just wanted to know when the appropriate time was to do 18 that because I don't want to put staff on the spot of having to go back and try to react to it at a time that ' s not 19 appropriate . A couple of these things talk about widening, signalization, lighting and that kind of thing. So, I just 20 wanted to know when the time for me to formally request that be added to the that project . If we 're going to design in 21 the conduits and the basic things that need to be done are going to be included in that design, then it ' s just a matter 22 of modifying the contract to pay for the poles and pull the wire and flip the switch, and we 're in business . That ' s not 23 a big problem. 24 Mr. Parks said, right now, staff is in the process of finalizing the scoping report . That scoping report will be 25 the premise for the final design. If a light is to go in, then it should go in the report now. 26 Mr. Denmark said, the problem going to be that it ' s a State 27 right-of-way, and therefore do they control the decision- making of that . 28 Mr. Parks said, yes, they do have a great deal to do with the 29 decision-making, but since it is local , if the MPO spelled it out, then they are obliged under ISTEA to work with the MPO 30to reach an acceptable result . That is one veto card, if you will , that the MPO does have; they are supposed to work in 31 coopera-H.on with us and vice versa. It ' s a give and take, but they have to incorporate our AE and TIP into theirs . If 32 ours has it, then theirs will , too . i 8 i� LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION-JANUARY 12, 1994 1 2 8 Mr. Tomlin said, it is a city issue, and there are some other 4 factors that I think are going to compound an existing problem. If what Mr. Parks is saying, if I understand him 5 right, then I would like a consensus of the MPO to have staff make sure that the installation of the traffic signal be part 6 of the recommendation to the State . And if they say, fine, you guys want it in there, then you' ll have to pay for it and 7 it will be alright with us; then that puts it back in my court to try and seek funding for it . I would like to see it 8 as part of the project and the recommendation. 9 Mr. Luchini said, I don' t see any problem with that . I think it should go in there . 10 Mr. Denmark said, what intersection was that? 11 Mr . Tomlin said, that was McClure and Valley Drive . 12 Mr. Miyagishima said, Councilman Tomlin brought this up as 13 far as traffic lights, but I have just a question. I 'm not sure if we can take a look at it or if we 're even the body to 14 do this ; but I 'm sure all of us have been more cognizant of the accidents increasing here in town, but how difficult 15 would it be, and I ' ll use the example of a yellow light . Everyone seems to run a yellow light because they don't know 16 how much time they have before it changes to red. My question is, how difficult would it be to make the yellow 17 lights blink just before it ' s ready to turn red. Some people, by doing that, would be able to gauge that it ' s about 18 to turn red. Is there a way to add a flasher or blinker. . . excuse, I meant the green light not the yellow. 19 Maybe the last three seconds of the green light, make it blink, then people realize that it ' s going to turn yellow and 20 they can start yielding. 21 Mr. Tomlin said, my guess would be that it would have to be on one of those computer-driven programs like the pedestrian 22 control signals flashing prior to them changing from green to red. Often times, I 've learned to watch that thing and if 23 it ' s flashing, I know that light is about to change . 24 Mr. Miyagishima said, I did mean the green light and not the yellow. That would signify that it ' s about to change, so it 25 would kind of say "don' t try running this green light because it ' s turning yellow. " 26 Mr. Haltom said, some people speed up. 27 Mr. Ferralez said, I think that has to be checked out with 28 the federal standards of signalization. 29 Mr. Denmark said, I do know some communities do that, but I 'm not specifically, technically knowledgeable of our current 30system. What I can do is talk to Mike Johnson, the City Traffic Engineer and provide a report for the next meeting. 31 Mr. Luchini said, it can' t hurt to find out about it . 32 Mr. Ferralez said, Mr. Chairman, I 'm looking at page one, and i 9 i� LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION-JANUARY 12, 1994 1 2 3 I see that Lohman/Amador, in the reshuffling confusion, is 4 second in prioritization, and for fiscal year 1994-95, nothing is going to be happening. As we discussed, there was 5 a feeling that Lohman/Amador is a high priority. In fact, if I 'm not mistaken, I think we moved it up to number one . That 6 intersection is becoming more of a problem every day. Like I mentioned at that time, it ' s a bottleneck at certain hours of 7 the day that could be inviting a real disaster some day. I hope it doesn't happen because it will block traffic in the 8 area because there is a lack of lanes to carry the amount of traffic that is trying to go through. What is the situation 9 on that project? 10 Mr. Denmark said, you're correct . During the review last year on the AE, Lohman was number one at one point . I don't 11 recall the rating and it might have even been higher, but What was it changed at the last meeting where you adopted the 12 AE. The discussion changed because the Policy Committee felt that the Mesa Grande Overpass was number one, and Lohman 13 became number two . Essentially, as far as funding what ' s reflected there is what the STIP is . They 're providing the 14 moneys necessary for 1995-96 . We don' t feel too bad. People feel that US 70 is a priority, but that ' s what happened. We 15 had a couple of meetings where this was discussed. We left it the way it was rated and approved last year, but if the 16 Policy Committee wants to change it, that ' s your prerogative . 17 Mr . Southworth said, well , if we 're going to combine the Mesa Grande Overpass with US 70 Frontage, we do have a decision to 18 make and that ' s whether to put the US 70 Frontage above or below Lohman/Amador. I personally feel that they're both so 19 important that it doesn't matter which way it goes but . . 20 Mr. Denmark said, what the State Highway Department recently told us was we ' ll give you the hundred thousand for Lohman 21 but you won't get it for US 70 . We ' ll just flip/flop the funding. That ' s essentially what happened with the Union 22 project. The discussion we had concerning funding either the paratransit vehicles or the road construction. The State 23 Highway Commission and the State Highway Department didn't mind that the City was willing to put in some of their moneys 24 into that project in order for the STP funds to be used for the paratransit vehicles . They don ' t really care . What they 25 care about is the bottom dollar. Once they've made a final decision about what we 're going to get in this district then 26 that' s the amount you' re playing with . 27 Mr. Ferralez said, one question that bothers me along these same lines, financing these projects is, has there been an 28 attempt or has it ever been done to figure the per capita expenditures that the Highway Department spends in Bernalillo 29 County and Dona Ana County. Because, there have been several times that some people have said they have made comparisons 30on a per capita basis and seems like Bernalillo gets the bulk of the funds . 31 Mr. Luchini said, they do get quite a bit more . 32 Mr. Southworth said, that would be a very easy comparison to 10 if c LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION-JANUARY 12, 1994 1 2 8 make . We have all of the census data from the 1990 census , 4 and we 've seen the budget broken down by counties , so it would be a very simple thing to do . 5 Mr. Luchini said, maybe we can direct the staff to look into 6 it and come up with some figures . 7 Mr. Southworth said, I 'm still concerned about New Mexico 292 that is listed on this AETIP as FY 93-94 project and 8 therefore, it doesn't really get into the section that people are looking for the coming year. Of course, it not only 9 hasn't started but it ' s not about to start. I can just see that whole thing dropping out of the whole process . The only 10 Place it ' s mentioned is on page ten, showing that it ' s a 1993- 94, hinging on the development of land to the east of the 11 project. I don't have a solution to this . I don' t know how we can put it in 1994-95 , but just watching the way the 12 Highway Department ' s funding goes, they never get done in any given year. Everything that ' s in their program and whatever 13 hasn't been started drops out the bottom. Is there some way Ito make a note of projects that are still pending leftover 14 from 1993-94? 15 Mr. Denmark said, we ' re responsible to indicate that . That ' s what Mr. Parks has done . He ' s indicated as projects are 16 completed, and that ' s part of the MPO process . What our thought was that projects that did not receive any funding or 17 were incompleted, would just shift over to the next year. They would always show up as part of the MPO program so they 18 wouldn' t be forgotten. That was one of the concerns we had for some of the smaller projects that might be eligible for 19 co-op, but not for STP . It ' s still an important project to somebody and it should be listed somewhere . 20 Mr. Tomlin said, is this the bridge replacement? 21 Mr. Southworth said, it started out as the bridge replacement 2.2 but then it went forward with a much bigger project. They also put an overlay, widen the road and put an overlay down to repave it. So, it came out to be a 1 . 43 million dollar project . Anyway, I don't want to lose it . I 've been working 24 on that thing for a lot of years . 25 Mr. Tomlin said, is that within Mesilla' s boundaries--most of it? 26 Mr. Southworth said, about half of it is . 27 Mr. Parks said, I believe once the funds get allocated, and 28 assigned a project number and control number, then the money is there to do it . It ' s just a matter of getting the project 29 started. I 'd be happy to check on that and get back to you on what their procedure is on those projects that don't 30actually get started, but where the money' s been approriated for it . 31 Mr. Southworth said, I ' d sure like to know that because I 've $2 seen projects that never got started just disappear. On this project they decided that they wanted to finish Highway 28 i 11 i�i LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION-JANUARY 12, 1994 1 2 8 first, and I can understand that, now we 've got another issue 4 that ' s come up--a subdivision that ' s been proposed for that area. They decided they wanted an entrance and that confused 5 the design of the 292 project . I know it is confusing, but I hope to get all of this resolved within the next few weeks on 6 that subdivision and some of the other factors . They 're talking about lowering a irrigation ditch also and putting it 7 underground. It ' s gotten very complicated all of a sudden. Instead of having all of the design completed and ready to go 8 as soon as they finish 28 and shift the crew over, some of these other issues have come up. Anyway, I just don' t want 9 to lose the project, so I would appreciate having Mr. Parks check on it so that by the next meeting when we have to 10 approve this thing, we ' ll have a plan. 11 Mr. Denmark said, what seems to happen is that they shift the money over and that those moneys were used for the 28 project 12 instead. The question is did they tag it and are they going to maintain it when the 292 project comes on line . That ' s 13 what we ' ll check into . 14 Mr. Luchini said, they give money for one project and then they shift it around and then you lose track of what you 15 initially started to do . I don't think it ' s fair. If staff checks into it and lets us know, we would appreciate it . Are 16 there any other comments? 17 Mr. Haltom said, Mr. Chairman, if I understand, then staff wants us to be prepared to approve this at our next meeting. 18 That raises a question about the closeness of the TAC meeting to the MPO Policy Committee meeting. If we 're going to be 19 running into this sort of thing in the future, it looks to me like maybe we need to think about changing the meeting 20 dates . Since they meet on Thursday, and then we meet on the following Wednesday, that gives staff only Friday and Monday 21 to get things prepared for us from the TAC . I don't think that gives you enough time to get it ready, get it to us so 22 that we have time to review it before this meeting. I 'm wondering if we need to change our meeting with a week 2between the TAC and Policy Committee . 24 Mr. Denmark said, we 've maintained it the way it ' s been done from the very beginning. That would make it easier for us . 25 Mr. Haltom said, at one point they used to meet on Wednesday 26 and that one extra day was important . 27 Mr. Parks said, one of the things that caught us by surprise this year was the late notice from the State and Feds on the 28 final rules and how they were going to handle this process this year. Most of the time the Policy Committee approved 29 the AE/TIP the second week in March, so we had an extra month then. Now they 've moved the deadline up, and so we have 30to have this to the State by March 1st . That ' s why we 're back a month. We weren't notified about this until S1 December. At tht time, we had Picacho Hills and other things in progress , so it really set us back. 82 Mr. Denmark said, the rules were due in the middle of 12 i{ LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION-JANUARY 12, 1994 1 2 $ October, and what happened was they scheduled a national 4 meeting in Nashville in the beginning of November to discuss it in detail . I attended that meeting but they didn't have 5 the final rules out . So they talked about the preliminary rules and it didn' t change much but some of the dates did. 6 Obviously, that was the concern we had because the federal deadlines were different from the state ' s deadlines because 7 they have to review everything before it goes to the feds . This particular year, these new deadlines did cause a 8 problem. 9 Mr. Haltom said, so, then you don't usually find this to be a problem. 10 Mr. Denmark said, no, because we try to give the TAC a couple 11 of meetings to work on things and also the Policy Committee in case there ' s things we need to research and also to give 12 you an opportunity to think about things . So, we do start the process well in advance and by the time we get to March, 13 we ' re okay . We didn' t know we were going to have be submitting this earlier. 14 Mr. Haltom said, so you don't usually have TAC work on 15 something one week and then ask us to do something with it the following week. It' s usually a month later? 16 Mr. Denmark said, that ' s right . 17 Mr. Luchini said, if there ' s nothing else, we ' ll see this at 18 the next meeting. The next thing on the agenda is a presentation on Scenic and Historic Byway Program by Javier 19 Gonzales . 20 Mr. Gonzales said, Mr. Chairman and members of the Committee, I ' d like to pass out some booklets to you. I was recently 21 names the Coordinator for the Scenic and Historic Byways Program. Through ISTEA, ten million dollars has been made 22 available nationwide for the development of Scenic Byways . At this point in time there is only seven eligible routes 23 through the program, meaning that those were nominated in 1991 when the ISTEA was enacted. Because of the desire to 24 include other routes and those projects in this program, the New Mexico State Highway Department together with other 25 federal and state agencies helped develop this program. We developed this booklet as the proposed rules . It was 26 accepted on the date that you see on the cover. In order to make the formal rules, we went through two public hearings . 27 One was held right here on December 20, 1993 , and the second one was held in Santa Fe on December 30 . We were very happy 28 with the outcome of the public hearings . We 've been covering all of the RPOs and MPOs throughout the state . The reason we 29 are taking it to the RPOs and MPOs is because we want the local bodies to know what ' s available for your region. We 301 need to get this program together this year. Let ' s go through the booklet . We have an implementation schedule of 81 the program. This is very, very tentative at this time . Initially, last October, we tried to initiate a presentation $2 process like this one and we encountered some difficulties . Nevertheless, we took a second initiative by contacting each 13 LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION-JANUARY 12, 1994 1 2 8 of the RPOs and MPOs . That ' s the reason why I 'm here 4 tonight . Because of the things that happened, I wrote to Commissioner Ford and requested that when the Advsiory 5 Council meets in February, a new schedule for the implementation of the program be considered. We 're not going 6 to meet some of the deadlines, specifically the March 1 , 1994 deadline for receiving the route nominations . We were 7 expecting to have received by this time, many nominations, but we only have four at this time . There are some proposals 8 and we are expecting more . I ' ll go over briefly the booklet and then answer any questions you might have . The Advisory 9 Council has 18 members . As you can see, there is a myriad of organizations being represented on this council , consequently 10 we 're hoping for a high level of objectivity in choosing and prioritizing the nominations . This program consists of two 11 sections . The first one is route nominations and the second is the projects . The projects are those which may occur from 12 the nominations . First of all you need to have a nomination for a determined route . It is a specific existing route or 13 byway that must have public access . This is not a program to enhance or build a new road or a new trail . It has to exist 14 and have public access . If we continue with the table of contents, there is an introduction of the program itself and 15 explains the need for this program. What is imperative here is that each different category explains and gives you the 16 route sponsors and their responsiblity. Every category gives you a definition of what the route is and the responsibility 17 of that category. Anyone can be a route sponsor as long as they are recognized by the RPO or MPO. The sponsors have a 18 lot of work when they present a nomination. Whomever nominates a route must have strong local support . Number 19 three of the responsibilities states, "create preliminary long term framework for implementation, plan for promotion, 20 plan for development, and a management plan. " The sponsor is responsible, one hundred per cent to oversee the whole 21 project . This is to nominate the route . Now, why are we asking for all of these specifics on the nomination. The 22 reason is that once we nominate a route, obviously we 're going to want projects along those scenic or historical 23 routes . Therefore we need to see that whoever is sponsoring a route has strong local support which means an 80% 24 reimbursement but the sponsor must be able to literally fork out 100 ',. Let me give you an example . If a project that 25 goes along the scenic byway is worth $100, 000 . 00, but you get volunteer work and donations, then maybe all of that together 26 is worth $20, 000 . 00, when you submit the proposal for the project the value of the project would be $80, 000 . 00 because 27 that ' s what you can itemize . You would still have to come up with the 20% and we would reimburse you for the remaining 80% 28 of the $80, 000 . 00 . I realize that on some projects with the State before, the $20, 000 . 00 of volunteer work and donations 29 could be considered as the 20% match from the sponsor, however that is not the case with ISTEA for this program. 301The preparation and submittal is done by the sponsor. From the sponsor it goes to the local MPO. This program has 31 provided for major participation by the RPOs and MPOs for the same reason I mentioned earlier which is that those 32 organizations are the ones who determine and prioritize the needs of the specific region. From the MPO/RPO it would go 1 14 i� LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION-JANUARY 12, 1994 1 2 3 to the NM Association of Individual Councils, and from there 4 it would go to the Scenic and Historic Byways Council . There is a limit of 50 nominations so we have to have a screening 5 process before it goes to the State Highway Commission for approval . Also included is the criteria for the selection of 6 the scenic byways . A question that was raised during the public hearing with respect to the type of vehicular use . 7 Vehicular doesn' t necessarily mean a car. It could be a walking trail or a bike trail . It also doesn't have to be a 8 paved road or trail . There is an evaluation criteria for the projects . This is very specific . Finally, on page 21 , lists 9 the specific eligible routes at this point in time, and who nominated them before 1991 . Sunspot received $600, 000 . 00 for 10 the observatory in Silver City. 11 Mr. Luchin . said, is the ten million just for New Mexico or nationwide? 12 Mr. Gonzales said, it nationwide . As I said, we 've already 13 received $600, 000 and I feel we have a good chance of getting more money. My office used to be a two man office, and now 14 it ' s a one man office since my boss got promoted. Even though it is only a one man office, I assure that you have a 15 hundred per cent of my commitment . I ' ll be glad to help you in any way I can. If you have any questions and I don't have 16 the answer, you can be assured that I will work to get an answer for you. We 're very anxious to get the program going 17 as soon as possible . That concludes my presentation but I ' ll be happy to answer any questions you might have tonight . 18 Mr. Tomlin said, you said the Sunspot Scenic Byway received 19 some money, is that correct? 20 Mr. Gonzales said, not the Scenic Byway; it was the national observatory got $600, 000 . 00 to do improvements in the form of 21 a lookout, not improvements of the road. 22 Mr. Tomlin said, has it been done . 23 Mr. Gonzales said, they got the money and they are working on it right now. 24 Mr. Tomlin said, we have only one route in Dona Ana County 25 that might apply and that ' s Highway 28 through La Union and Stahmann Farms . 26 Mr . Gonzales said, there is an application on page six of the 27 booklet. 28 Mr. Parks said, I have a question on the evaluation criteria. It says that in order to accumulate some points, 29 you have to have an average daily traffic . You mentioned that you could have a bike trail or something, am I led to 301believe that if it ' s less than 200 bikes or horseback riders or walkers a day, that we would get no points for that? 31 Mr. Gonzales said, that ' s a very good question. When this 32 was put together, it was in draft form. We 're still working on it, and asking for your comments . These comments can be i 15 i� LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION-JANUARY 12, 1994 1 2 8 mailed to my office or you can call me . This question you 4 just raised is one that I will bring up to the Advisory Council . b Mr. Parks said, I was encouraged because it doesn' t have to 6 be an asphalt roadway, and we 're doing some things along the river levees . 7 Mr. Gonzales said, that ' s right. We have some that can only 8 be accessed by four wheel drive vehicles . So, as long as it meets the criteria, by all means, go for it. Mr. Chairman 9 and members of the Committee, thank you for your time tonight. 10 Mr. Luchini said, okay, is there any other discussion. I 11 attended a meeting in Tulsa three weeks ago for a round table discussion. They wanted to talk about what ' s happening with 12 ISTEA. It was very interesting to learn some of the things that are happening in the big cities as well as cities like 13 ours . Some of the cities take as many as three or four counties so therefore they 're not hurting on the ISTEA 14 moneys . They've got everything that they want . This is not right. I was very perturbed with the whole thing. I really 15 lowered the boom up there, you might say. The Under Secretary was very pleased with the discussions that we had 16 up there . He ' s going to take it to Secretary Pena, and let us know how they feel about it . Actually, they wanted the 17 input as to what ' s happening with some of the states and counties . In New Mexico , we don' t get any moneys to speak 18 of. We 're the only county in the State of New Mexico getting match funds for roads and stuff like that . Bernalillo gets 19 quite a bit of money, and the other counties don' t have any money to be able to get any match money for roads . We 're 20 fortunate in Dona Ana County that we can do that. I think the money should come 100% to the counties . The State gets a 21 heck of a lot of money but they won 't let go of it . They want to dictate to us in the lower counties and smaller 22 cities as to how we get those moneys . That is not right. After all this is from the gasoline taxes and we spend a lot 23 that goes into the feds and we don't get any back. So, I told them about it . They were impressed with my way of 24 thinking and they are going to take it to Pena. I met him in Washington last year and I 'm going back there in April for 25 another meeting. Who knows, maybe we ' ll change their way of thinking in Washington. Pena is very much in favor of 26 changing the way things are going since he ' s from Colorado . I talked a little bit with him when I was in Washington. 27 Maybe we ' ll get some money. I thought the discussions were very well presented by several people . This one engineer 28 from New York, someplace I think, says they' ll never spend the money that they get . That ' s a dirty shame when here we 29 are fighting a little money and we can't get it, and then these big cities get all the money and won't use it . It was 30 very interesting. 31 32 16 i{ LAS CRUCES METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION-JANUARY 12, 1994 1 2 3 There was no further discussion, and the meeting adjourned. 4 MINUTES SUBMITTED B . 5 6 011)4 Minerva Sanchez , Sec ary 7 8 APPROVED BY: 9 10 -Ra/B.

Approximately 23 individuals attended the Council meeting; however, there were no issues raised concerning the Update Plan. The Transit Advisory Board meets bimonthly. Notices of the meeting are posted in accordance with the City of Las Cruces policy. Copies included in the Appendix. In addition, the meeting is published in the local newspaper. Copy included in the Appendix (B) . The public is allowed to attend; in 1993 only two (2) individuals attended to observe how the Board functions. During 1993, the Transit service and Dial-a-Ride service were l advertised through newspapers and television. Copies of newspaper ads included in the Appendix (C) . I am a member of the Las Cruces Committee on Concerns of the Handicap. I attended one of their meetings in March 1993 . There were approximately 13 individuals present. I received only compliments for the Dial-a-Ride service. The paratransit coordinator works with the following organizations on a daily and weekly basis: Autumn House Disability Resource Center Center of Rehab Evaluation Westbrook Sports Medicine Clinic Each of the above organizations have a supply of our Policy & Procedures Manuals and applications for certification. In addition, the coordinator works with several other organizations on a regular basis during the year. A list of these organizations is included in the Appendix (D) . These agencies were notified by letter of the preparation of the 1994 Update Plan. The Transit Advisory Board has two (2) members who represent the disabled community. One gentleman is a Disabled American Veteran, and the other individual is confined to a wheelchair. I have attached a copy of a comment which appeared in the local newspaper on December 28, 1993 . We were very pleased with the complimentary remarks. I should note that we have never received a negative comment or article in the newspaper concerning our Dial-a- Ride service. Copy included in the Appendix (B) . A pubic hearing was held on January 12, 1994 (copy included in Appendix (E) ) for the purpose of obtaining a certification from the Metropolitan Planning Organization. 11 CLC (RoadRUNNER) 1994 ADA Update UNRESOLVED ISSUES 1 . The public notice includes a statement that the Plan is available in accessible formats upon request . 2 . No more than 20 trip denials per year. In 1993, there were 37 denials mostly in the first half of 1993 . No more than 20 missed trips per year. In 1993 we had only 10 missed trips . On-time performance must exceed 90% per year. In 1993, we had 92% on-time performance. 3 . We do continue to monitor demand levels . Perhaps one reason the demand seems to be low is that the service is presently not available to all individuals within the City limits. The service is available to only those individuals living within X mile corridor of fixed-route service. 12 CLC (RoadRUNNER) 1994 ADA Update OTHER ISSUES 1-4 . No Changes. 5. , The City of Las Cruces is considering the expansion of the Dial-a-Ride service to all points within the City limits. Presently, the service is only provided within the 4 mile corridor which leaves parts of the City without this service. The possibility of this expansion will be discussed during the budgetary process for the City' s PY 94- 95 budget. 6 . According to the service criteria checklist, it would appear that we have reached full compliance. Our original target date was 1995. Upon review of our 1994 Update, please advise if there is additional action required of us to reach full compliance. 7-11. No Changes. 12 . In 1993, we added an additional paratransit van to our fleet bringing the total number of vans to five (5) . 13-14 . No Changes. 13 APPENDIX A ( CERTIFICATION APPLICATION) ROADRUNNER's PARATRANSIT ELIGIBLITY PART 1 - TO BE COMPLETED BY APPLICANT (Please print or type information) NAME: ADDRESS: CITY: STATE ZIP CODE: HOME TELEPHONE: ( ) - WORK TELEPHONE: (_)_- can ) -Can you make your own signature?
