1 Infrastructure Planning and Funding MID-REGION COUNCIL OF GOVERNMENTS MID-REGION METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION MARCH 19, 2015 NAIOP-NEW MEXICO CHAPTER

2 About MRCOG o Regional planning agency o Consortium of: o Local governments o Tribal governments o State agencies o Forum to collaboratively address issues of regional importance o Provide technical assistance

3 MRCOG Programs o Metropolitan Planning Organization o transportation planning o Rural Transportation Planning Organization o Regional Planning Assistance o water resources o land use, zoning, comprehensive planning o Rio Metro Regional Transit District o Workforce Connection of Central NM o Agricultural Collaborative o Economic Development

4 Overview of the Metropolitan Planning Process Mid-Region Metropolitan Planning Organization (MRMPO) is a federally mandated program for transportation planning. ◦Analyze projected population growth & growth patterns to predict future travel demand ◦Program all federal transportation funding ◦Highway funds ◦Transit funds ◦Special funds (safety, tribal transportation program, railroad crossings, etc.) ◦Program regionally significant transportation projects ◦Develop long-range transportation plans (Futures 2040, Metropolitan Transportation Plan) ◦Develop short-range transportation funding program (Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) ◦Analyze strategies to address highway congestion ◦Data Collection

5 Overview of the Metropolitan Planning Process Regional Planning process involves all state, local and tribal government stakeholders engaging in the 3C process ◦Continuous ◦Cooperative ◦Comprehensive MTB (Metropolitan Transportation Board) established committees comprised of representatives of various agencies to develop the MTP and TIP

6 The Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP)  Long-range (20+ years) multi-modal transportation plan for the Albuquerque metro area  Updated every 4-5 years (current update  April 2015)  Outlines regional transportation challenges & strategies for responding to those challenges  Analyzes future travel demand  Projections of growth/development  Contains list of all anticipated transportation projects in the region based on projected growth, development & funding  MTP provides key locations for additional development, transportation strategies and recommendations to improve regional mobility.

7 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)  Federally mandated short-term funding plan  Updated every 2 years  Covers a six year period (FFY )  Programs funding for transportation projects in the Albuquerque Metropolitan Planning Area (AMPA)  All federally funded highway projects  All federally funded transit projects  All “regionally significant” projects whether state, local, tribal, or privately funded  Is developed by representatives from all state, local, and tribal agencies

8 How does the TIP relate to the MTP? The adopted MTP will guide transportation investments for the region Projects to be funded are selected from the MTP project listing or must be consistent with the MTP The TIP allocates limited financial resources among the many transportation needs Funding categories have specific eligibility requirements & conditions

9 Project Prioritization Process A tool for evaluating TIP project proposals is the Project Prioritization Process (PPP) Each project is evaluated and receives a prioritization score depending on how well the proposed project supports the goals and regional directions outlined in the MTP. Highest Scoring Projects address: - multimodal connectivity - target key activity centers & corridors - goals and directions of the MTP

10 Fiscal Constraint for the TIP & MTP Fiscal Constraint – the total amount of all projects cannot exceed the amount of funds “reasonably expected to be available”. The TIP & MTP must be fiscally constrained: ◦Projects to be funded cannot exceed funds available ◦Total projects contained in the MTP cannot exceed projected funding levels. ◦The plan must provide reasonable assurance that the federally supported transportation system is being adequately operated and maintained Funds for system expansion must be targeted to projects which provide the greatest regional benefit and efficiency

11 Transit Mode-Share Goal Established by the Metropolitan Transportation Board  Established a goal for 20% of the aggregate trips along the priority transit network are to be achieved via transit by 2040  Introduced a Priority Transit Network  Beginning in FFY 2016 and continuing each subsequent year, 25% set-aside of sub-allocated federal funds (STP-Large Urban and CMAQ- Mandatory funds) will be:  Allocated to transit projects or transit-related projects on the priority transit network  Approx. $5.3 million each year

12 2040 MTP Publicly Funded Projects by Project Type

13 2040 MTP Privately Funded Projects

14 2040 MTP Fiscal Constraint Projected Federal & State Revenues FFY $4,831,798,993 billion dollars Projected Local Revenues FFY $5,905,378,655 billion dollars Projected Total Public Revenues FFY = $10,737,357,648 billion dollars Projected Maint. & Oper. Cost for All Agencies -$5,649,589,429 billion dollars Projected Total Public Revenue for Capital Projects = $5,087,768,219 billion dollars Total Estimated cost of All Publicly Funded Projects = $5,087,266,371 billion dollars The projected total public revenue for capital projects is below the total estimated cost of all publicly funded projects which = Fiscal Constraint for the MTP

15 Key Differences 2035 MTP & 2040 MTP Less public spending on Highway Capacity Projects More public spending on Highway and Bridge Preservation ◦Greater accuracy in projecting Maintenance and Operations Expenditures ◦Greater accuracy in projecting NMDOT funding needs for capital preservation projects (reconstruction, rehab, bridge replacements) Increases in transit expenditures and available transit funding allocations are due to: ◦Increases in transit ridership region-wide (29% increase in trips) ◦Additional FTA funds allocated to region as a result of NM Rail Runner operations; this amounts to over $12.5 million in FFY 2015 alone with an increase expected in FFY 2016

17 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) FFY Summary Statistics Total funds by Project Type

18 Key Infrastructure Funding Challenges 1). Over $150 Million dollars of TIP requests submitted for sub-allocated federal funds (STP-Large Urban, CMAQ-Mand & STP-Sm Urban funds) this past TIP development cycle and only $50 Million of those requests were actually funded 2). Public Funds for transportation have decreased with no new revenue streams for transportation funding anticipated ◦Federal and state gas tax have not been increased since 1993 ◦Decrease in VMT (Vehicle Miles Traveled) results in less gas purchases/less tax ◦Increased fuel efficiency in vehicles results in less gas purchases/less tax ◦Inflation has increased cost of projects resulting in lower “purchasing power”

19 Key Infrastructure Funding Challenges 3). Limited funding generating a priority shift to Highway & Bridge Preservation improvements ◦aging infrastructure requires reconstruction and rehabilitation 4). Funds for system expansion must be targeted to projects which provide the greatest regional benefit and efficiency of the entire transportation network 5). Greater emphasis on public-private partnerships to implement projects
