AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           November 13, 2007

 

From:                          Edward F. Smyth, Jr., Deputy City Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing an Interlocal Agreement with the Lake-Sumter Metropolitan Planning Organization for the Creation, Funding and Implementation of a Master Transportation Concurrency Management System Program

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the attached resolution with LSMPO for a Master Transportation Concurrency Management System Program.

 

Analysis:

In 2003, The Lake-Sumter Metropolitan Planning Organization (LSMPO) was created to manage all of the transportation planning activities and processes.  Since its creation, a majority of the transportation concurrency planning and management has been turned over to the MPO to centralize and coordinate an effective system of transportation planning. 

This agreement authorized the MPO to create and maintain all of the data for a centralized transportation concurrency management system to be used by all of the member local governments to make their individual concurrency decisions.  The MPO will also create a database model which shows the impacts of all proposed development on the transportation system, and provide results to the cities and counties on a regular basis. 

The member local governments will be responsible for providing all of their current data related to transportation impacts they currently possess and maintain, and to provide all traffic impact analysis each month from applicants for development approval.  The MPO will be required to prepare and submit a report of findings related to the transportation impacts to the local governments within 15 days of an applicant’s data, and to review and report on any additional information and data.  The MPO is also responsible for coordinating with the Florida Department of Transportation on any data that meets the department’s criteria for Strategic Intermodal Systems.

The agreement, once approved by the member local governments, will be come effective on January 1, 2008, and automatically renew each October 1 for a one year term.  The City has the option to withdraw from this agreement with a 90 day notice to the MPO.

Options:

1.  Adopt the resolution to approve the agreement;

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.

Fiscal Impact

Each member local government is required to pay an annual amount based upon its population.  The total budgeted amount for the creation and maintenance of this database for FY 2007-08 is $130,000.00.  The City of Leesburg’s annual share of this amount is calculated to be $6,820.00.  Since the initial period of this agreement will only run for 9 months, the FY 2007-08 pro-rata share is calculated to be $5,110.00.  Funds are available and have been budgeted in the Community Development Department for this project.
