6 County Road System Types of Roads (Classifications) Arterial Network

7 County Road System Types of Roads (Classifications) Arterial Network Collector Roads (gravel & paved)

11 How is the Condition of a Paved Road Measured? A special van drives every paved road in the county and measures pavement distress (ie cracking/potholes, etc) with laser measuring device. Based on the number and depths of cracks, each section of road is rated is given a Pavement Quality Index number, or PQI, from 1 (Bad) to 10 (perfectly paved). Surveys are conducted every three years The most recent survey cost $45,000 4 high-speed lasers measure cracking across the width of the lane. How lasers see a crack

12 PQI 8.3

13 PQI 5.5

14 PQI 3.8

15 PQI 2.1

20 2009 Subdivision Roads

21 2012 Subdivision Roads

22 Current Challenges Time = $ – Inflation – Continued Deterioration – Increased Maintenance Costs Optimal Improvement Strategy – Worst first – Long term cost effectiveness – Broad distribution of improvements Challenge with current policy – Inefficiency/Admin. Complexity – Bonding Costs – Divisive – Support only when roads are bad and expensive

23 Average Cost of Hot Mix Asphalt

24 Summary of Subdivision Pavement 5 Year Rehab. Program Cost Comparison Average PQI Year Change PQI5.4 PQI-.5 PQI-8% 5 Year Rehab. Program Cost Comparison $22.3$26.9+$4.7+21% COST COMPARISON IS PRESENTED ONLY TO ILLUSTRATE THE MAGNITUDE OF COST CHANGES ASSOCIATED WITH 4 YEAR DELAY IN REHABILITATION AND SHOULD NOT TO BE USED AS AN ESTIMATE OF ACTUAL COSTS OF ANY PROPOSED STRATEGY SINCE ANY STRATEGY FOR REHAB. WOULD NOT LIKELY OCCUR WITHIN 5 YEAR TIME FRAME, INCORPORATE THE SAME STRATEGIES OR GOALS, NOR REFLECT ADDITIONAL DETERIORATION OR INFLATION THAT OCCURS WITH A LONGER REHABILITATION PROGRAM.

25 Optimal Improvement Strategy

26 Challenge With Current Policy – Inefficiency/Admin. Complexity > 100 subdivisions with paved roads Many with no functioning HOA – Divisive Difficult for neighbors to advocate on divisive issue – Bonding Costs Costs of bonding/interest large % of total cost Relatively more expensive for small subdivisions – Support only when roads are bad and expensive Local support when roads are very bad Most expensive to fix

27 Status of Recent Subdivision Resident Input Subdivision Paving Working Group – Multiple Meetings and Outreach – Website/Petition 287 Signatures supporting creation of countywide subdivision LID for rehabilitation of sub. roads 6 HOA Representatives signed petitions

28 Status of Recent Subdivision Resident Input Niwot Public Improvement District – Survey of support for placing question on ballot – 2,549 survey postcards sent – 894 returned (35% response) – 65% of eligible voters did not respond – Of those who responded: 607 (68%) support/287 (32%) opposed 24% of eligible voters support placing on ballot 11% of eligible voters oppose placing on ballot Cost to average home in Niwot – $422/yr. for years 1- 6 – $223/yr. from year 7 out

29 Status of Recent Subdivision Discussions Pinebrook Hills – Unsuccessful LID Crestview Estates – Unsuccessful LID Reserve - Potential Rehab. With HOA fees Gunbarrel Estates – Petition Process Initiated Gunbarrel Green - Discussion Homestead - Discussion South Meadow - Discussion Shannon Estates - Discussion Lake Valley – Discussion

30 Recent Subdivision Resident Input Already pay sufficient/too much taxes. Roads should be rehabilitated from existing sources. It is County responsibility to maintain public roads/County should live up to responsibility. County violated commitment to maintain roads when they were accepted for maintenance. County should re-arrange budget priorities/divert funds from other uses. Many who support creation of LID, share sentiments, but believe situation is critical, and need to create LID ASAP.

31 8 County Comparison of 2011 R&B Budgets

32 Options/Direction Maintain Current Policy – Individual Subdivision Initiatives/Improvement Districts – County Contribution Create Countywide Subdivision Public Improvement District w/ Vote Create Countywide Subdivision Local Improvement District w/current authority

33 Issues For Consideration : – Include Niwot PID /Reserve in LID? – Balance between revenue constrained and need? – Time period for an improvement program? – Appropriate inflation factor? – Appropriate contingency factor? – County contribution?

34 QUESTIONS / DISCUSSION?
