UM, MATEAH WAS THERE A SECOND? I'LL SECOND OAKLEY.

SECOND.

I THINK I HEARD ANOTHER VOICE, BUT I GUESS HE SPOKE LOUDEST.

SO, UM, WE HAVE A MOTION AND THE SECOND TO APPROVE THE MINUTES.

UM, IS THERE ANYBODY AGAINST THIS MOTION? UH, COMMISSIONER, UH, CHAIR LONG, I HAD UNDERSTOOD THAT THERE WAS A DISCREPANCY AND I THOUGHT IT WAS MERE HOUSTON ON AND THOUGHT SHE HAD, UM, SOME INFORMATION TO CORRECT THE RECORD.

I DON'T SEE HER ON THE, SHE'S NOT ATTENDANCE AT THIS POINT.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO COME BACK AND, UM, AND YOU KNOW, WHAT THE CONCERN WAS, YOU KNOW, I'M NOT REMEMBERING IT.

UM, I'M NOT REMEMBERING THE DETAILS.

[00:05:01]

UM, BUT I THINK SHE HAD WANTED TO BRING IT UP.

WELL, SHE DID NOT INDICATE THAT TO ME.

DID SHE? AND SHE DIDN'T TELL YOU WHAT IT WAS ABOUT.

UH, SHE DIDN'T, I'M JUST FORGOTTEN, UM, CHAIR.

I CAN SPEAK TO THAT.

I THINK SHE, I THINK SHE HAD NOTICED, CAUSE SHE MENTIONED THAT TO ME ALSO THAT, THAT SHE THOUGHT THAT WE HAD, UH, ACTUALLY VOTED, UH, ON A MOTION TO POSTPONE ON THE BYLAWS ITEM AND SHE DIDN'T SEE THAT REFERENCED IN THE MINUTES.

I HAVE NOT REVIEWED THE MINUTES MYSELF, BUT I THINK THAT'S MY MEMORY COMMISSIONER SHEA OF WHAT SHE HAD MENTIONED.

YEAH, THAT SOUNDS ABOUT RIGHT.

I'M SORRY, I WASN'T DIDN'T JOT IT DOWN.

I DIDN'T, I WASN'T REMEMBERING THE PARTICULARS.

I'M JUST CHECKING WITH HER TO SEE IF SHE'S ON THE CALL.

SO I THOUGHT SHE WANTED TO BRING IT UP.

HER NAME DOESN'T SHOW UP.

UM, WELL CHAIR, WE CAN GO AHEAD AND GET COULDN'T SHE BRING IT UP LATER IF SHE NEEDS TO 10 ALSO COMMISSIONER TRUMP SAYING IS SAYING THAT HE CAN'T HEAR ANY SOUND AT ALL AND EVERYBODY ELSE CAN.

UH, HE'S JUST TEXTING AND THAT'S WHAT HIS STAFF IS SAYING AS WELL.

EVERYBODY ELSE IS HAVING HIS HEARING FINE.

YEAH.

AND COMMISSIONER BECKETT HAS JOINED US AS WELL.

UM, SO I WILL MARK HER DOWN.

UM, UH, SO DOES ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANY COMMENT ON THE MINUTES OR ANY RECOLLECTION OF WHAT COUNCIL MEMBER KITCHEN IS RAISED? I MEAN, I RECALL THE DISCUSSION, BUT, UM, I DID NOT REVIEW THE MINUTES THROUGH, SO I COULDN'T, I COULDN'T TELL YOU ABOUT IT, BUT IS THIS AN ISSUE WE CAN JUST TAKE UP WHEN WE'RE HOUSTON JOINS? UM, YEAH, WE WILL LOOK THE MINUTES FOR NOW.

MOVE ON TO

[6. Discussion and Take Appropriate Action on CAMPO Executive Director to Begin Negotiation on Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Contract]

ITEM NUMBER SIX.

UM, TAKE, DISCUSS AND TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION ON THE CAMPO EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR TO BEGIN NEGOTIATION ON THE TDM CONTRACT.

UM, AND I BELIEVE THERE IS A REPORT FROM NEROV ON THIS ONE, I THINK COMMISSIONER LONG, GOOD AFTERNOON.

MY NAME IS MIRA VED CAMPUS STAFF.

AND, UH, FOR THIS ITEM, I WILL BEGIN WITH A BRIEF EXPLANATION OF TRANSPORTATION, DEMAND MANAGEMENT OR TDM, ESSENTIALLY.

IT IS A COLLECTION OF STRATEGIES TO REDUCE DEMAND ON THE TRANSPORTATION NETWORK BY REDIRECTING TRAVEL TOWARDS OTHER MODES TIMES OR ROUTES.

FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU DECIDE TO LEAVE FOR WORK LATER TO AVOID TRAFFIC, THAT IS TDM.

IF YOU DECIDE TO TAKE THE BUS THAT'S CDN, AND IF YOU DECIDE TO TAKE ANOTHER ROUTE TO AVOID TRAFFIC, THAT IS ALSO TEDIOUS.

THE TDM PROGRAM THAT THE CONSULTANT WILL MANAGE IS AN IMPLEMENTATION OF THE TDM PLAN ADOPTED IN LATE 2019, AND WILL ALSO INCORPORATE LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE ONGOING PADDOCK CAMPUS APPROACH.

A TDM WILL BE GEARED TOWARDS ESSENTIAL AND OTHER WORKERS WHO DO NOT WORK A TRADITIONAL NINE TO FIVE JOB OR WORK FROM HOME IS NOT AN OPTION.

ADDITIONALLY, WE WILL GATHER DATA, HAVE A BETTER COMPARISON OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TDM PROGRAMS TO TRADITIONAL ROAD PROJECTS TO HELP ENSURE THE PROGRAM'S EFFECTIVENESS.

A STEERING COMMITTEE WILL BE FORMED TO HELP MEET THE PROGRAM GOALS.

THE STEERING COMMITTEE SERVES AS A FORUM TO EXCHANGE IDEAS AND ENSURE THE IMPACT IS FELT REGIONALLY.

I ALSO WANT TO NOTE THAT THE COMMITTEE SOLUTIONS WEBSITE IS AND WILL BE A KEY FEATURE IN THE REGIONAL TDM PROGRAM.

THERE'LL BE NO LOSS OF FUNCTION OR ACCESS FOR CURRENT USERS AS WE MOVE FORWARD.

IN FACT, RIGHT, AMIGOS, WHICH IS A SUB-CONSULTANT FOR THE TOP RANKED FIRM IS ALSO THE CURRENT VENDOR FOR COMMUTE SOLUTIONS, WHICH WILL ENSURE A SEAMLESS TRANSITION.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE, IF BOARD MEMBERS WERE CALLED LAST MONTH, STAFF SHOWED THIS LINE THAT DETAILS EVALUATION PROCESS FOR PROCURING CONSULTANT SERVICES, NEXT SLIDE, AND THE REGIONAL TDM PROGRAM RECEIVED FOUR RESPONSES TO THIS RFP AND TWO WERE CHOSEN TO PARTICIPATE IN INTERVIEWS.

TOTAL SCORES SHOW THE TOP RANKED FIRM AS URBAN TRIBES, WHICH INCLUDES THEIR SUB-CONSULTANTS A DECENT COMMUNICATIONS ICF AND RIGHT AMIGOS NEXT SLIDE FOR THIS LAST SLIDE STAFF REQUESTS, THE TRANSPORTATION POLICY BOARD TO AUTHORIZE THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR TO NEGOTIATE AN EXECUTED CONTRACT WITH THE TOP RANK FIRM TO MANAGE THE REGIONAL TDM PROGRAM.

THANK YOU.

THANKS NIRA.

UM, IF YOU COULD CHANGE THE VIEW BACK TO THE WHOLE PANEL NOW, PLEASE.

THANK YOU.

UM, SO IF YOU ALL RECALL, IT WAS EITHER IN OUR SEPTEMBER OR OCTOBER MEETING, I THINK COMMISSIONER SHAY, YOU HAD ASKED THAT THE RFP BE SENT OUT TO EVERYONE

[00:10:01]

ON THE POLICY BOARD, WHICH TOOK PLACE.

AND THEN NOVEMBER 5TH, I BELIEVE IS WHEN THE, UM, RFP WAS SENT OUT AND, UM, THEN NERO JUST PROVIDED YOU THE REPORT ON THE SCORING AND ON, UM, AND UH, ON THE PROCESS.

SO IS THERE A MOTION TO APPROVE ITEM NUMBER SIX, MADAM CHAIRMAN, I ASK A QUICK QUESTION TO NARROW.

SURE.

NARROW, THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION QUICK AND EXPEDITIOUS.

NO, WE LOVED THAT.

AND THIS IS KIND OF MEETINGS, UM, THAT YOU MENTIONED THE SUB COMMITTEE IS A SUBCOMMITTEE.

IS THAT GOING TO BE, UM, THE COMPOSITE BEING THE TAC MEMBERS OR IS IT, UM, POLICY BOARD MEMBERS OR WHAT DO YOU HAVE IN REGARDS TO THINKING ABOUT THAT? THEY WILL MOSTLY BE DRAWN FROM A TAC MEMBERS THOUGH, IF THERE ARE OTHER MEMBERS WHO, UM, WILL HAVE, UH, UM, I GUESS, UH, EXPERTISE, THEY WILL ALSO BE CONSIDERED, BUT MOSTLY IT'S USUALLY, ESPECIALLY FOR SOME, IT USUALLY COMES FROM TAC BECAUSE THE SHORT ANSWER, THANK YOU, MATT.

APPRECIATE IT.

SO, AND I THINK, UM, IT'S REFERRED TO THROUGHOUT AS THE STEERING COMMITTEE AND I THINK THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN WHAT THREW SOME PEOPLE OFF, BUT, UM, SO THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS I HAD JUST A COUPLE OF QUICK CLARIFICATIONS.

SO THE, THE REFERENCE TO THE 2019 TDM PLAN THAT, UM, THAT THE CAMPBELL POLICY BOARD ADOPTED THAT'S, IS THAT, IS THAT, IS THAT INCORPORATED IN, AND THAT'S PART OF WHAT THE CONSULTANT WILL BE SORT OF BUILDING OR WORK ON.

YOU MADE A REFERENCE TO IT.

I JUST WANTED TO UNDERSTAND HOW IT WOULD WORK.

YES, MA'AM THE, UH, THE PROGRAM WILL IMPLEMENT A PLAN.

OKAY.

UM, AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT, UM, I'VE BEEN TALKING WITH TEXTILE ABOUT, AND I THINK WE'VE ALL NOTICED IT IS HOW DRAMATICALLY THE, UM, UH, INITIAL, UM, UM, ACTION TO SHUT DOWN WORKPLACES BECAUSE OF COVID, UH, HOW DRAMATICALLY THAT TRANSFORMED OUR TRAFFIC PROBLEMS. THERE WAS NO MORE CONGESTION.

UM, AND WHAT I'M, UH, WONDERING ABOUT WITH THIS TDM PLAN IS HOW, HOW WILL IT WORK WITH LOCAL COMMUNITIES TO SUPPORT TELEWORK, UM, IMPLEMENTATION THAT WASN'T CLEAR TO ME FROM THE DOCUMENT EITHER? UH, SURE.

SO FOR A TELEWORK, THAT'S KIND OF, UH, GOING TO BE DEPENDENT, THAT'S WHERE THE OUTREACH COMES IN BECAUSE YEAH, THERE WAS A LOT OF, I MEAN, YES, THERE WAS MANY INDUSTRIES THAT WERE ABLE TO TRANSITION TO WORK FROM HOME QUICKLY AND EFFECTIVELY, BUT THERE WERE ALSO, UH, WE IMAGINED INDUSTRIES THAT COULD NOT DO IT, OR WE'RE NOT QUITE ABLE TO DO IT.

SO PART OF THAT, WHERE I MENTIONED THE THIRD BULLET IN THE FIRST SLIDE WAS THE DATA GATHERING ASPECTS IS WE NEED TO GO OUT AND FIND OUT WHICH INDUSTRIES OR PROFESSIONS WEREN'T ABLE TO EXACTLY, UM, BENEFIT OR USE WORK FROM HOME AND SEE IF WE CAN GET THEM TO SEE IF WE CAN HELP THEM ACHIEVE THAT GOAL.

UM, CAUSE I THINK THAT THIS WOULD BE A VALUABLE PART OF OUR LONG RANGE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING IS TO JUST HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE VALUE OF TELEWORK IN, UM, ESSENTIALLY EXTENDING THE LIFE OF OUR, OF OUR, UM, OUR TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE.

IT EASE, IT HELPS TO EASE CONGESTION.

UM, SO I'M, I'M JUST WANTING TO UNDERSTAND HOW THAT WILL BE ENCOURAGED AND SUPPORTED, UM, AS PART OF THE TDM PLAN, MR. SHAY, THIS IS ASHLEY.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? YEAH.

SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE WE ARE LOOKING TO DO WITH THIS CONTRACT IS WHERE WE'VE ALREADY STARTED.

THE PROCESS OF EXPLORING IS AVAILABLE FOR US TO PURCHASE, UM, WHERE WE COULD START TO GET A SENSE OF, UM, NOT ONLY ORIGIN AND DESTINATION OF TRIP, BUT CAN ALSO, UH, ETHIC AND, UM, IN A MORE REAL TIME BASIS, IT DOES EXIST TODAY UNLIKE, UM, IN THE PAST.

AND SO, UM, WE WANT TO TRY TO TARGET THOSE PLACES AND IN SOME CASES, THOSE EMPLOYERS AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT, ONCE WE GET THIS DATA AND WE DO THE OUTREACH TO SEE, CAN WE, UM, UH, ENCOURAGE AND ENHANCE THE USE OF TELEWORK A BIT MORE WHERE IT MAKES SENSE.

AND THEN I DON'T KNOW IF THIS, UH, IF THIS WOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE, UM, TDM EFFORT OR OUR LARGER SORT OF SAFETY INITIATIVES, BUT IT'S, UH, IT'S, IT'S STRIKING TO ME THAT, UM, THERE WAS, UH, A POST FROM NAC T O THAT, UH, TRAFFIC IS DOWN 13%, BUT DEATHS ARE UP 8%.

SO I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH THAT, BUT THAT IS A OBVIOUS PROBLEM.

SO WE

[00:15:01]

DO HAVE A, UM, UH, SAFETY, UM, UH, SAFETY PROGRAM AND A SAFETY, UM, ANALYSIS REPORT THAT WE DO THE NEAR OF ALTO MINES.

UM, SO WE'VE BEEN LOOKING AT THAT AS WELL.

UM, AS WELL AS THAT AS PART OF THE PERFORMANCE MEASURES THAT WE ADOPT FOR TEXTILES, WE WANT TO HEAR ABOUT THAT.

I THINK IT'S THE NEXT ITEM.

UM, SO WE'VE BEEN LOOKING AT THAT AND BY THE WAY, UM, MY COUNTERPARTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE TELLING ME THEY'RE SEEING THE SAME THINGS, UM, WHERE, WHAT HAPPENED IS WE SAW A BIG REDUCTION IN TRAFFIC, BUT WE SAW A BIG INCREASE IN CRASHES AND FATALITIES BECAUSE A LOT OF PEOPLE USE THAT LACK OF CONGESTION ON THE ROADWAYS AS THE ANSWER REALLY BRIDES VERY FAST.

UM, SO FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND FROM, UH, UM, THINGS I'M SEEING, UM, WRITTEN REPORT ARE THAT, UM, THE CRASHES INVOLVING PEOPLE DRIVING GREATER THAN A HUNDRED MILES AN HOUR WENT UP SIGNIFICANTLY.

AND, UM, WHEN THOSE CRASHES HAPPEN AT THOSE SPEEDS IS IT'S NEVER, UM, IS RARELY A VERY GOOD OUTCOME.

GREAT.

THANK YOU.

YES MA'AM.

OKAY.

UM, SO IS THERE A MOTION FOR ITEM NUMBER SIX? I'LL MOVE PASSAGE OF ITEM SIX, AND THEN AFTER I HAVE A SECOND, I HAVE SOME DIRECTION TO ADD, UM, UH, COUNCIL MEMBER ELLIS.

I THINK I SAW YOUR HAND GO UP FOR A SECOND.

SO MOTION MADE BY COUNCIL MEMBER ALTER SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER ELLIS.

ALL RIGHT.

ANY DISCUSSION COUNCIL MEMBER ALTAR.

THANK YOU.

UM, SO I APPRECIATE THE PRESENTATION FROM NERO AND, UM, UH, WE HAD SHARED SOME DIRECTION THAT WE WANTED TO ADD, UM, WITH ASHBY BEFORE AND SOME OF THAT GOT CAPTURED INTO THE PRESENTATION.

UM, BUT BECAUSE THE QUESTIONS STILL, UM, LINGER JUST BASED ON THE PAPERWORK ALONE, I WANTED TO, UM, SUGGEST SOME DIRECTION.

I THINK IT'S ALL VERY MUCH IN LINE WITH WHAT YOU'RE PRESENTING FOR TWO OF THE ITEMS THAT ARE IN THE DIRECTION AND THEN THE THIRD, BUT WAS NOT NECESSARILY ADDRESSED IN THE PRESENTATION.

UM, SO WHAT I'D LIKE TO PROPOSE IS THAT TPB DIRECTS THE CAMPO EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR TO INCLUDE IN THE TDM CONTRACT AS CLARIFICATION FOR TASK 4.0 REGIONAL COORDINATION, THAT THE CONSULTANT WILL WORK WITH THE CAMPO TAC TO CONVENE A TDM COMMITTEE AS RECOMMENDED BY THE ADOPTED CAMPO REGIONAL TDM PLAN TO ADVISE CAMPUS STAFF AND THE CONSULTANT ON THE DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A REGIONAL TDM PROGRAM THAT ALIGNS WITH THE REGIONAL TDM PLAN, THE EVALUATION AND SELECTION OF AN ONLINE TDM PLATFORM TO OPERATE AND MAINTAIN.

UM, SO THAT IS, UM, THE FIRST DIRECTION.

AND THAT IS ESSENTIALLY TO FOLLOW THE, THE, THE SUGGESTION AND THE TDM PLAN THAT WE ALL PASS, THAT WE WOULD HAVE A TAX SUBCOMMITTEE, UM, THAT DOES NOT PRECLUDE ADDING OTHER PEOPLE TO THAT SUBCOMMITTEE, IF THAT IS WHAT IS NECESSARY FOR THIS STEERING COMMITTEE.

SO I THINK THAT WAS DISCUSSED.

I PRESUME THAT THAT SHOULD BE FINE.

UM, THE SECOND DIRECTION WAS B UM, WITH RESPECT TO THE PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT PLAN.

SO THE TPB DIRECTS THE CAMPO EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR TO BRIEF THE TPB ON THE PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT PLAN PRIOR TO EXCEPT FOR TASK 2.0 AS COMPLETE FROM THE CONSULTANT, THE CONSULTANT SHALL CONSULT WITH THE CAMPO TAC TDM SUBCOMMITTEE IN DEVELOPING THE PEP.

UM, SO THAT HAS TO DO WITH, UH, COMPREHENSIVE, UM, ENGAGEMENT PLAN.

AND JUST BECAUSE SO MANY OF US WHO ARE ON THE BOARD, UM, HAVE CONNECTIONS AND CAN, CAN SUPPORT THAT, UM, TO HELP THAT, UM, REALLY REACH THE POPULATIONS THAT WE ARE TRYING TO TARGET, WHO HAVEN'T BEEN SERVED, UM, FROM SOME OF THE PRIOR INITIATIVES.

UM, AND THEN THE THIRD DIRECTION IS THE TPB DIRECTS THE CAMPO EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR TO BRIEF THE TVB ON THE TDM ONLINE PLATFORM TO BE OPERATED BY THE CONSULTANT UNDER TASK 2.1 PRIOR TO SELECTION.

IF THE RECOMMENDATION IS TO CHANGE THE PLATFORM FROM THE CURRENT RIDE AMIGOS PLATFORM.

SO THE FIRST AND THE THIRD I THINK WERE ADDRESSED IN THE PRESENTATION, BUT JUST FOR CLARITY WOULD LIKE THAT DIRECTION TO BE IN THE RECORD.

UM, AND THEN THE SECOND ONE IS JUST, UM, ADDING THE STEP THAT THE CAMPO EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR BRIEF THE TPB ON THE PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT PLAN BEFORE IT IS ACCEPTED AS DELIVERABLE.

SO, UM, I JUST WANT TO CLARIFY, I THINK IN THE PRESENTATION, IT'S JUST, IT'S SEMANTICS.

I THINK YOU'RE CALLING IT A SUBCOMMITTEE.

THE NERO WAS CALLING IT A STEERING COMMITTEE, BUT I THINK IT'S STILL THE SAME CONCEPT.

SO, UM, I THINK

[00:20:01]

THAT TO YOUR POINT WAS ADDRESSED AND, UM, ASHBY, UM, I THINK YOU'RE BEING ASKED TO, UM, JUST BRING A REPORT BACK TO THE POLICY BOARD ON THE PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT PLAN.

UM, I DON'T SEE THAT ANY OF THOSE ARE, UM, DIFFICULT TO DO MY ASK AND I PLEAD AGAIN, PLEASE, I GOT THIS EMAIL AT ONE 31 TODAY, WHEN YOU ALL HAVE SUGGESTIONS LIKE THIS, IT WOULD BE MOST BENEFICIAL TO BE ABLE TO GET THAT TO STAFF SOONER SO THAT THE WHOLE BOTTLE OF SEABOARD CAN HAVE A CHANCE TO.

AND LIKE I SAID, I THINK MOST OF THESE WERE ADDRESSED, BUT, BUT PLEASE OUT A DIFFERENCE TO AND RESPECT FOR OUR COLLEAGUES.

PLEASE TRY TO GET THESE THINGS OUT A LITTLE BIT SOONER.

THAT WOULD BE SO HELPFUL.

UM, ASHBY, DID ANY OF THOSE THINGS THAT SEEM LIKE THEY'RE NOT COVERED, UM, IN WHAT YOU PLANNED ON DOING ANYWAY? UH, NO.

MA'AM SO, UH, THOSE THINGS THAT WERE LAID OUT BY, UH, COUNCIL MEMBER ALTER ARE, ARE THINGS THAT WE WOULD ROUTINELY DO WITH THESE STUDIES.

OKAY.

UM, COUNCIL MEMBER, KITCHEN.

I SEE YOU HAVE A QUESTION.

UH, YEAH, NO, I JUST WANTED TO CLARIFY.

YEAH, I HEAR WHAT YOU'RE SAYING, CHAIR, YOU KNOW, UM, I HAD MENTIONED THIS BEFORE AND I'M HAPPY TO WORK WITH ASHBY AND OTHERS IF THEY'D LIKE TO PROCEED THIS WAY.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WOULD BE GREAT IS IF WE HAD, UM, A MESSAGE BOARD, UH, THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS THAT'S ALLOWED FOR, UM, GOVERNMENTAL BODIES, UM, LET'S FOR THE CITY, FOR EXAMPLE, WE HAVE A MESSAGE BOARD THAT WE CAN POST THINGS THROUGH, AND THAT HELPS, BUT ALSO I DID GIVE, UH, ASHBY AND I TALKED ABOUT THIS ON FRIDAY.

AND AS YOU RECALL, I RAISED, I LET YOU KNOW CHAIR LONG ON FRIDAY THAT WE HAD SOME IDEAS ABOUT THE TDM, RIGHT.

AND I'M JUST ASKING IF YOU HAVE IT IN WRITING, TRY TO, YOU CAN GET IT TO ASHBY AND HE CAN SEND THAT OUT TO THE REST OF THE POLICY BOARD, UM, IN ADVANCE.

ABSOLUTELY.

WE WILL TRY TO DO THAT IN THE FUTURE.

WE THANK YOU PROCESS ON FRIDAY.

YES.

I'M NOT DONE HERE.

SORRY.

I THOUGHT YOU WERE FINISHED.

NO, THAT'S FINE.

I JUST WANTED TO SAY THIS IS GREAT.

AND, UM, UH, I APPRECIATE, UH, THE, UM, THE INTENT TO, UH, AS IT WAS DESCRIBED, I THINK THIS IS A GOOD MOVING FORWARD.

I JUST WANTED TO, SECONDLY, THE CONCEPT OF BRIEFING US ON THE PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT PLAN, UM, AND THERE MAY BE OTHER WAYS TO ASHBY THAT YOU'D LIKE TO ENGAGE THE POLICY BOARD.

I THINK WE CAN BE HELPFUL TO YOU AND TO THE CONSULTANTS.

UM, I KNOW THE INTENT IS TO REALLY REACH OUT TO, UM, UNDERSERVED POPULATIONS.

UM, AND ONE OF THE DELIVERABLES ALSO INCLUDES, UM, ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE MEETING, COORDINATION AND MATERIALS.

SO I'M EXCITED ABOUT THOSE ASPECTS OF, OF THIS.

AND I THINK THAT, UM, AS A BODY, WE CAN BE HELPFUL, UH, TO YOU AND THE CONSULTANT, UM, AS YOU DO THAT WORK.

SO I THINK THE BRIEFING, UH, COMING BACK AND BRIEFING US WOULD BE HELPFUL.

AND, UH, I AGREE, UH, VICE CHAIR, KITCHEN, AND, UM, UM, WE'LL COME BACK AND DO THE BRIEFING FOR CERTAIN, BUT WE WILL ALSO BE REACHING OUT TO, UH, SOME OF YOU TO HELP US CONVENE, UM, SOME OF THE MEETINGS, UH, IF IT GETS TO A POINT WHERE WE CAN, UM, HAVE SOME OF THESE MEETINGS IN PERSON, IF, IF THE VACCINATIONS MOVE APART, UH, ENOUGH.

UM, AND JUST AS A REMINDER, BACK WHEN WE WERE DOING THE, UM, REGIONAL ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION PLAN, WE REACHED OUT TO COUNCIL MEMBER ALTAR, UH, TO, UH, HELP US, UM, REACH OUT TO SOME FOLKS FOR THE MEETING THAT WE HAD OVER THE SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF.

AND SHE SHOWED US THAT HELP US WITH THAT.

ALL RIGHT.

IS THERE ANY OTHER DISCUSSION ON THIS ITEM, MADAM CHAIR? I JUST WANT TO GIVE A LOT OF CREDIT TO THIS BOARD, COMMISSIONER, SHEA AND PETER AS WELL.

THIS, THE TDM WE'VE DISCUSSED THIS YEARS AGO AND HAD A DISCUSSION AND ITS FRUITION WAS, I MEAN, NO ONE EXPECTED A PANDEMIC TO HAPPEN AND WE'VE MOVED FORWARD WITH IT AS WELL.

SO IT SAYS A LOT ABOUT THIS BOARD LOOKING AT THE FOUR F FOUR THINKING REGARDING THIS, AND SO PRETTY EXCITED TO SEE THIS HAPPEN.

SO GOOD, GOOD JOB, ASHLEY AND STAFF.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

UM, ANY TIME, UM, I'M SORRY, IS THERE ANYONE AGAINST THE MOTION? OKAY.

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE THAT AS EVERYBODY ELSE'S FOR THE MOTION.

SO MOTION PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

AND JUST AS A CLARIFICATION, I STILL HAVE, UM, THE ONLY I HAVE MAYOR SCHROEDER AND MAYOR VAN ARSDALE AS STILL, UM, NOT, UM, IN ATTENDANCE, SHAWNA, I DON'T SEE ME OR HOUSTON ON HERE.

ALICIA, SHE'S ON THERE.

UM, I GOT HERE, I PREGNANT

[00:25:01]

GO DIFFICULTY.

SO, UM, WE'LL GO ON

[7. Discussion and Take Appropriate Action on Federal Performance Measure Targets]

TO ITEM NUMBER SEVEN.

AND, UM, I DON'T, I CAN'T TELL IS MS. JOSEPH ON THE LINE.

I DON'T SEE HER UNLESS SHE HASN'T BEEN ADMITTED TO THE MEETING.

I DON'T SEE HER.

THERE SHE IS.

OKAY.

MS. JOSEPH, UM, I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU THREE MINUTES, BUT, UM, IT, IT WILL BE INCLUSIVE OF AGENDA ITEMS, NUMBER SEVEN, EIGHT, AND NINE.

YOUR REQUEST TO SPEAK, UM, CAME IN AFTER THE DEADLINE, BUT IN DEFERENCE TO YOU, WE'RE GOING TO GO AHEAD AND ALLOW YOU TO SPEAK, BUT IF YOU WOULD CONDENSE YOUR COMMENTS ON THOSE THREE AGENDA ITEMS, UM, TO THREE MINUTES, UM, LET'S SEE.

LET ME GET MY TIMER GOING.

AND, UM, ALL RIGHT, GO AHEAD, MS. JOSEPH, YOU HAVE THREE MINUTES TO COVER ITEMS. SEVEN, EIGHT, AND NINE.

OKAY, GO AHEAD.

THIS IS AN OB JOSEPH AND BOARD MEMBERS.

I'M NOT SURE WHAT DEADLINE YOU'RE REFERRING TO.

MADAM CHAIR.

IT SAID 1:00 PM, AND THAT'S THE TIME MY EMAIL WAS SENT.

UM, BUT AT ANY RATE, IF, UM, THAT IS NOT CORRECT, I WOULD JUST ASK YOU TO ASK STAFF TO UPDATE IT BECAUSE I ACTUALLY COMPLIED WITH WHAT WAS POSTED ONLINE FOR THE PUBLIC, AS IT RELATES SPECIFICALLY TO THE TRANSIT ASSET MANAGEMENT.

I JUST WANTED TO ASK, I DID FOLLOW THE MARCH 1ST, 2021 PRESENTATION BY MR. RYAN COLLINS.

AND I WAS NOT SURE WHAT HE MEANT SPECIFICALLY BY SMALL PROJECTS.

SO AT SOME POINT HE TALKED ABOUT, UH, FUNDING FOR SMALL PROJECTS THAT WOULD COME IN THE FUTURE.

I'M NOT SURE IF HE WAS REFERRING TO THE TRENDS IN ASSET MANAGEMENT OR IF THAT WAS ITEM EIGHT, BUT IF HE COULD JUST SPEAK TO WHAT THE SMALL PROJECTS ENTAILED, HE TALKED ABOUT PEDESTRIAN PROJECTS AND BIKE PEDS.

MY COMMENT IS SPECIFICALLY RELATED TO, UH, THE NEED FOR TRANSPORTATION ON FM SEVEN THREE, FOUR, AND THE PEDESTRIAN ACCESS, WHICH IS LACKING TO SAMSUNG, AS YOU MAY BE AWARE.

AND I'VE MENTIONED THIS BEFORE.

THERE'S NO SIDEWALK FROM DESSA AND PALMER TO SAMSUNG AND ACROSS FROM PALMER IS THE 425 ACRE DEVELOPMENT EAS VILLAGE.

AND SO I WOULD JUST ASK YOU TO RECOGNIZE THE NEED FOR PEDESTRIAN ACCESS THERE.

AND AS IT RELATES TO SMALL PROJECTS AND PROJECTS IN GENERAL, I DID HAVE A QUESTION AS IT RELATES TO METRO RAPID.

AND I THANK MR. ASHBY JOHNSON FOR THE EMAIL, THE SCORING CRITERIA THAT I'M REFERRING TO IS IN THE REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION PLAN, 2045, BUT I'M NOT SURE TO WHAT EXTENT THE STAFF HAS LATITUDE TO SIMPLY TAKE A PROJECT FROM THERE, UH, AND TO TRANSFER IT OVER TO THE NEW MONIES THAT YOU'VE RECEIVED UNDER THE CARES ACT FUNDING.

AND SO, AS IT RELATES TO YOUR BYLAWS, WHICH IS ITEM NINE, I JUST WANT TO ASK YOU TO CONSIDER INTEGRITY AND SPECIFICALLY CAPITAL METRO, UH, PASS THEIR ETHICS POLICY ON NOVEMBER 14, 2018.

HOWEVER, I JUST WANT YOU TO BE AWARE THAT THE PUBLIC, WHEN PROJECT CONNECT WENT TO FOR THE VOTERS NOVEMBER THE THIRD 2020, THEY WERE NOT, UM, TOLD ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE IN SCORING CRITERIA FOR THE METRO RAPID LINE.

SO THERE WAS A LACK OF TRANSPARENCY.

I KNOW THAT MAY SOUND CONFUSING, BUT THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THE TRANSPORTATION, UH, THE THREE METRO RAPID LINES THAT SERVE NORTH EAST AUSTIN, WHICH WOULD HAVE INCLUDED PARMER LANE WERE ALL CHEAPER, LESS EXPENSIVE THAN THE LINE THAT WILL SERVE SOUTHWEST AUSTIN, WHICH ALIGNS WITH THE SOUTH PARK PARKWAY PROJECT $633 MILLION.

THAT'S A LOT OF INFORMATION, BUT IF YOU COULD JUST ADDRESS HOW THE PROJECTS WILL BE FUNDED, UM, AND SELECTED, I WOULD APPRECIATE IT.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, I'LL GLADLY ANSWER THEM AT THIS TIME.

UM, THANK YOU.

UM, MS. JOSEPH, UM, I THINK, UH, SOME OF THE QUESTIONS YOU RAISED I HAVE TO DO WITH TRANSPORTATION ALTERNATIVES AND NOT NECESSARILY WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ON THESE PARTICULAR ITEMS. UM,

[00:30:01]

BUT, UH, IF THERE'S ANY FOLLOW-UP, UM, I WILL ASK, UH, THAT IF YOU COULD PUT THOSE QUESTIONS IN WRITING TO STAFF, THEY MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP YOU, BECAUSE I THINK IT'S, IT'S ON A DIFFERENT TOPIC ON THE TRANSPORTATION ALTERNATIVES TOPIC.

AND LASTLY, MADAM CHAIR, I'LL JUST TELL YOU THAT I'M LOOKING ON PAGE 30 OF ONE OH, ONE OF YOUR BOARD PACKET, UM, FOR TRANSIT SAFETY TARGETS.

SO THAT'S WHERE I WAS TRYING TO MAKE MY COMMENTS IN THE CONTEXT OF THE THANK YOU.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

ALL RIGHT.

WE'LL NOW TAKE UP ITEM NUMBER SEVEN.

METRO, CAN WE JUST CLARIFY WHAT IS THE REQUIREMENT FOR PEOPLE TO, UH, INDICATED INTEREST IN SPEAKING GENERALLY, MOST MEETINGS PEOPLE CAN SHOW UP AND SPEAK.

SHE'S POSTING SAYS BY ONE O'CLOCK ON THE DAY OF IT WAS, IT WAS THE, THE POSTING DOES SAY THAT.

AND, UM, IT WAS RECEIVED AFTER 1:00 PM, BUT AGAIN, WE, I ACCOMMODATED THAT AND ALLOWED HER TO SPEAK.

SO I THINK WE SHOULD BE GOOD, UM, ON ITEM NUMBER SEVEN.

UM, LET'S SEE, I THINK RYAN, YOU HAVE THAT PARTICULAR ITEM.

UH, YES, MA'AM THANK YOU CHAIR LONG.

UM, AND I CAN TRY AND ADDRESS THE OBVIOUS COMMENTS, UH, LATER ON I THINK, UH, UH, I'LL TRY AND GET IN TOUCH WITH HER AND SEE IF I CAN CLARIFY, UM, THE COMMENTS THAT SHE MADE.

UM, SO, UM, THANKS.

AND SO, UH, QUICKLY, I KNOW WE'VE GOT A LONG MEETING, SO I WANTED TO, UM, THIS ITEM IS REGARDING THE TRANSPORTATION PERFORMANCE MEASURES, UM, PRESENTED A DEEP DIVE ON THE TRANSPORTATION, UH, TARGETS, UH, LAST TIME.

UH, BUT FOR THE PRESENTATION TODAY, I REALLY WANTED TO KIND OF TAKE A STEP BACK AND TAKE A HOLISTIC APPROACH, UH, TO WHY WE'RE SETTING THESE TARGETS AND REALLY WHAT THEY MEAN FOR THE POLICY BOARD IN GENERAL.

UM, WE GOT SOME REALLY GOOD FEEDBACK AT THE TECHNICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE, UH, LAST MONDAY, UM, AND THE TWO BIG QUESTIONS THAT REALLY CAME OUT OF THAT FOR ME WERE, YOU KNOW, WHY ARE WE SETTING THESE TARGETS AND WHAT ARE THE IMPACTS? AND THEN REALLY, HOW ARE WE DOING AS A REGION, UM, IN REGARDS TO THE TARGETS THAT WE'RE SETTING.

SO I DID WANT TO KIND OF TAKE A STEP BACK AND TALK ABOUT THAT A LITTLE BIT.

UM, AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I MENTIONED, UH, LAST TIME WAS THAT, UH, BACK IN 2012, UH, THE, UH, CONGRESS ADOPTED MAP 21 AND AGAIN, IN THE FAST DOCS AS WELL, UH, THEY REALLY MANDATED, UH, TRANSPORTATION PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM.

UM, AND THIS IS REALLY JUST A STRATEGIC APPROACH THAT USES, UH, UH, DATA AND INFORMATION TO REALLY GUIDE OUR, UH, TRANSPORTATION INVESTMENT DECISIONS AS WELL AS POLICY, UH, IN THE REGION, UH, AGAINST THESE NATIONAL GOALS THAT, UH, THAT CONGRESS HAS SET OUT AND IS REALLY IMPORTANT.

THAT TARGETS ARE REALLY JUST ONE PIECE OF THAT.

THEY'RE REALLY JUST THE MEASURING STICK WITH WHICH WE CAN MONITOR OUR PROGRESS AS A REGION OVER TIME.

AND, AND THIS IS AN EVOLVING SYSTEM.

UH, THIS IS SOMETHING THAT'S REALLY KIND OF STARTED IN MY MIND.

I FEEL LIKE IT STARTED IN EARNEST WHEN WE REVAMPED OUR, UH, OUR PROJECT SELECTION CRITERIA BACK IN 2017.

UH, WE DEVELOPED THAT SELECTION CRITERIA BASED ON THAT, THOSE MAJOR GOALS THAT CONGRESS SET OUT.

AND SO, UH, WE REALLY USED A PERFORMANCE-BASED APPROACH WHEN WE MADE RECOMMENDATIONS AND FUNDED PROJECTS OUT OF THAT PROCESS.

SO THAT WAS A BIG PUSH AND THAT'S REALLY ONE OF THE TEETH OF THE TARGETS, YOU KNOW, WITH WHICH WE MEASURE OURSELVES, UH WE'RE WE MADE THESE STRATEGIC INVESTMENTS AND ALSO POLICY DECISIONS THAT REALLY IMPACT, UH, HOW WELL WE CAN, UH, YOU KNOW, MOVE THOSE TARGETS AROUND.

SO, UM, SO ALONG WITH THE PROJECT SELECTION CRITERIA, WE SET THE REGIONAL TARGETS.

UM, AND THEN AGAIN, UH, THIS IS AN EVOLVING SITUATION AT THE TIME, BUT WE MONITORED THESE INVESTMENTS.

WE'RE TRACKING THE PROJECTS THAT WE INVESTED IN, UM, AND WE'RE GOING TO BE MONITORING THE, THE IMPACT OF THOSE PROJECTS OVER TIME.

SO AFTER THESE PROJECTS WERE BUILT, UH, WE'RE GOING TO BE MEASURING THE IMPACT THEY HAVE ON THE REGION AS A WHOLE.

SO WE CAN REALLY KIND OF SEE EXACTLY WHAT THE RETURN OF INVESTMENT RETURN ON INVESTMENT IS FOR THOSE PRODUCTS.

AND THEN WE ALSO INCORPORATE A TPM APPROACH INTO ALL OF OUR PLANNING PRODUCTS, UH, THE TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM.

IF YOU LOOK AT A REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION PLAN, ALL OF THE STUDIES WE DO, AND AS NEAR, AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, I THINK THE, THE TDM PROGRAM ITSELF IS ALSO ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT JUST TAKES A PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT APPROACH.

IS THERE ANYTHING THAT'S REALLY DATA CENTRIC, UM, IS REALLY PART OF THAT SYSTEM? SO, UH, WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE TARGETS, I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT THEM IN ISOLATION.

I FEEL LIKE THAT'S SOMETHING THAT KIND OF GETS LOST IS THAT THESE ARE REALLY PART OF A LARGER SYSTEM THAT CAMPO, UH, INITIATE.

SO I JUST WANT TO KIND OF TAKE THAT OVERALL VIEW.

UM, EMILY, SHE'LL GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

YES.

AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, UH, CONGRESS DID SET THOSE PERFORMANCE GOAL AREAS.

SO WE LOOK AT SAFETY INFRASTRUCTURE, CONDITION, CONGESTION, RELIABILITY, AND FREIGHT MOVEMENT, UM, ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY, AND ALSO REDUCING, UH, PROJECT DELAYS AND, UH, HAVING QUICKER PROJECT DEVELOPMENT.

UM, AND SO THE PERFORMANCE MEASURE PROCESS IN REGARDS TO THE TARGETS, UM, THE GOAL AREAS WERE SET BY CONGRESS.

UM, BUT THEN THE GOALS

[00:35:01]

AND THE PERFORMANCE MEASURES THEMSELVES, UH, GO THROUGH THE FEDERAL RULEMAKING PROCESS AT THE USDA, UM, AND OUR WORLD THAT IS, UH, FWA AND FTA.

AND THEY'VE BEEN SYSTEMATICALLY GOING THROUGH THE RULE-MAKING PROCESS, UH, FOR EACH PERFORMANCE MEASURE.

AND THAT'S WHY YOU'LL SEE THEM ALL COME ON.

THEY'VE ALL COME ONLINE AT DIFFERENT TIMES.

UM, BUT THEN ONCE THESE PERFORMANCE MEASURES ARE CODIFIED IN LAW, UH, WE, UH, THE USDA, EXCUSE ME, THE STATE DEITY, UH, REGIONAL TRANSIT AGENCIES, AS WELL AS THE NPO, UH, SET TARGETS IN REGARDS TO THESE PERFORMANCE MEASURES.

AND THEN WE INCORPORATE THOSE INTO OUR PLANS AND THEN AT THE PRIMING PROGRAMMING AND INVESTMENT DECISIONS THAT WE MAKE THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO THIS IS A OVERARCHING SUMMARY OF ALL THE, UH, PERFORMANCE TARGETS THAT I PRESENTED LAST TIME.

AND, UM, I'M NOT GOING TO GO INTO THESE INDIVIDUALLY.

SO, UM, BUT AT THE END OF THIS PRESENTATION, IF YOU DO HAVE ANY SPECIFIC QUESTIONS ABOUT ANY OF THESE PERFORMANCE TARGETS, UH, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK YOU IS I'VE GOT THE DATA WITH ME AND WE'D BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO GO INTO DETAIL ON ANY OF THESE.

UM, BUT REALLY THIS IS A SUMMARY OF ANYTHING THAT YOU SEE IN LIGHT BLUE IS A TARGET THAT IS NUMERICALLY GOING DOWN.

UM, AND THEN ANYTHING IN DARK BLUE IS A TARGET THAT IS NUMERICALLY GOING UP.

UM, AND I WOULD ASK YOU TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE METRIC THAT'S BEING USED, UH, WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING AT THE CHANGES, UM, OBVIOUSLY NUMBER OF FATALITIES THAT TARGET'S DOING DOWN, AND THAT'S A GOOD THING.

UM, BUT, AND ALSO IF YOU LOOK AT PAVEMENT CONDITIONS, FOR EXAMPLE, UH, THAT'S GOING UP AND THAT'S PAYMENTS IN GOOD CONDITION.

SO THAT'S A, THAT'S A GOOD THING.

SO, UH, WHEN YOU'RE, UH, LOOKING AT THESE, I WOULD, UH, PAY ATTENTION TO THAT.

UM, AND THEN NEW, UH, UH, PERFORMANCE MEASURES THAT WE HAVEN'T HAD YET OUR TRANSIT SAFETY TARGETS.

UM, NOW THEY'RE SETTING THOSE AND THEN THEY'RE PRETTY MUCH THE SAME METRICS THAT WE USE FOR THE HIGHWAY SIDE.

UM, BUT THOSE ARE BRAND NEW METRICS THAT ARE BASED OFF OF THE, UH, TRANSIT AGENCIES, UH, SAFETY, UH, PLANS THAT THEY'VE MAKE.

UM, THE ONE THING I DO WANT TO CLARIFY IS THAT PM ONE, TWO AND THREE ARE ALL, UH, FWA AND TEXTILE TARGETS.

UM, AND THEN ON THE TRANSIT SIDE, WE HAVE TRANSIT ASSET MANAGEMENT AND TRANSIT SAFETY TARGETS.

THESE ARE AVERAGES BETWEEN THE THREE TRANSIT AGENCIES WE HAVE IN THE REGION.

WE HAVE CAPITAL METRO, THE CITY OF ROUND ROCK AND THE CITY OF, UM, SAN MARCUS.

AND SO WE'VE AVERAGED THEIR TARGETS, UH, IN REGARDS TO THOSE.

SO THESE ARE REGIONAL.

UM, BUT THEN WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE, ON THE HIGHWAY SIDE, WE ARE ADOPTING THE, THE STATE RECOMMENDING, UH, ADOPTING THE STATEWIDE TARGETS.

THE NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO THIS IS JUST A DIFFERENT LOOK AT THE SAME INFORMATION, UH, AND REALLY KIND OF THE, THE IMPORTANT THING THAT I PULLED AWAY FROM THE, THE TECHNICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE IS, UH, YOU KNOW, HOW, HOW ARE WE DOING AS A REGION IN REGARDS TO THESE TARGETS THAT WE'RE ADOPTING AND, YOU KNOW, THINGS YOU SEE IN LIGHT GREEN, THESE ARE TARGETS THAT WITH WHICH WE ARE EXCEEDING, UM, AND ANYTHING IN DARK GREEN IS SOMETHING THAT WE'RE CURRENTLY BELOW THE TARGET.

AND THEN IF WE'RE EITHER EQUAL WITH THE TARGET OR TO NEW TARGET, IT'S IN GRAY.

BUT, UM, I THINK WHAT THIS, ISN'T THE STORY I'M TRYING TO SAY HERE IS THAT OVERALL, UH, WE'RE DOING BETTER IN MOST METRICS THAN, UH, THAN THE STATEWIDE AVERAGE, WHICH IS REALLY IMPORTANT.

I DO WANT TO CLARIFY THAT OBVIOUSLY ON SAFETY, PERFORMANCE MEASURES, ANY NUMBERS, NOT A GOOD NUMBER.

UM, SO WHEN I SAY WE'RE DOING BETTER, THAT DOES NOT MEAN WE'RE NECESSARILY DOING GOOD, BUT WE ARE TRENDING BETTER THAN THE STATEWIDE AVERAGE.

SO THAT'S JUST AN IMPORTANT CLARIFICATION TO MAKE.

UM, WE DO, UM, SAFETY AS FAR AS FATALITIES, IF YOU ADJUST FOR POPULATION WE'RE RIGHT ON TREND WITH THE TARGET.

UM, BUT OUR RATE OF FATALITIES, NUMBER OF INJURIES AND RATE OF SERIOUS INJURIES ARE LOWER THAN THE STATEWIDE AVERAGE, IF YOU ADJUST FOR POPULATION.

UM, AND THEN THE REGION ITSELF, WE DO HAVE, UH, UH, VERY GOOD, UH, INTERSTATE PAVEMENT CONDITIONS, AS WELL AS NATIONAL HIGHWAY PAVEMENT CONDITIONS AND BELOW AVERAGE, UH, SYSTEM PAVEMENT AND POOR CONDITIONS.

AND THEN OUR SYSTEM PERFORMANCE, UH, OUR RELIABILITY CURRENTLY IS BELOW THE 70% TARGET, UM, AND OUR FREIGHT TIME RELIABILITY AS WELL.

SO, UM, I DO WANT TO POINT OUT THAT THERE IS ONE METRIC.

SO IF YOU LOOK AT TRANSIT ASSET MANAGEMENT, UM, I BELIEVE CAP METRO, I DID HAVE A FLEET THAT AGED OUT LAST YEAR, AND THAT'S WHY THEY DID NOT MEET THAT TARGET, BUT I WOULD EXPECT THAT WILL CHANGE NEXT YEAR.

AND SO, UM, YOU KNOW, WE SET TRANSIT ASSET MANAGEMENT TARGETS EVERY YEAR, AS WELL AS SAFETY TARGETS.

SO WE'LL BE BRINGING THESE BACK NEXT YEAR.

UM, BUT OVERALL, YOU KNOW, THESE THINGS CHANGE CONSTANTLY.

UH, THE DATA WE GET IS CONSTANTLY BEING UPDATED.

AND SO, UM, YOU KNOW, NEXT YEAR WILL LOOK VERY DIFFERENT.

AND, UH, SPECIFICALLY I THINK IN REGARDS TO SAFETY IN THE EARLIER CONVERSATION THAT WE HAD, UM, IS THAT WE DON'T YET HAVE THE PANDEMIC, UH, THE DATA FOR 2020, THAT SHOULD BE COMING OUT ANY TIME, I THINK SOMETIME IN MARCH.

UH, BUT WHAT WILL BE REALLY TELLING IT, YOU KNOW, AS, AS YOU MENTIONED, IS THAT, UH, YOU KNOW, OUR FATALITY IS GOING TO GO UP BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE SPENDING MORE ON OPEN HIGHWAYS AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

SO, UH, IT'S JUST SOMETHING THAT WE MEASURE OVER TIME.

UH, AND SO THAT'S REALLY THE GIST OF, UH, THIS ENTIRE THING, UH, THAT WE'RE DOING HERE.

SO, UM, WITH THAT, UH, EMILY, IF YOU'LL GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

OKAY.

ONLY SO FOR THE NEXT STEPS,

[00:40:01]

UM, I'LL, I'LL BE UPDATING THE PERFORMANCE MEASURE, UH, REPORT.

UM, IT'LL INCLUDE THE ADOPTED TARGETS, UH, FROM TODAY.

UH, ALSO WE'LL BE ADDING SOME INFORMATION ON TARGET DEVELOPMENT METHODOLOGY.

I THINK THAT'LL HELP US UNDERSTAND THE NUMBERS A LITTLE BIT BETTER.

UM, YOU KNOW, WHERE THEY'RE COMING FROM, BECAUSE THERE'S A LOT OF, THERE'S SOME, SOME INTERESTING MATH BEHIND A LOT OF THESE TARGETS, UM, THAT WE GET.

UM, SO I'LL BE FLESHING THAT OUT IN THE REPORT ITSELF.

AND THEN AS I MENTIONED, THAT REGIONALLY SPECIFIC INFORMATION, I DO HAVE THAT, UH, AND I WAS DEBATING WHETHER OR NOT DOING INCORPORATED INTO THE PRESENTATION TODAY, BUT I DIDN'T WANT TO GET BOGGED DOWN, BUT IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THEM, PLEASE LET ME KNOW TODAY, BUT THAT WILL CERTAINLY BE INCLUDED IN THE PERFORMANCE REPORT.

UM, SO WE'LL BE ABLE TO COMPARE OURSELVES, UH, TO THE, UH, KNOWLEDGE OF THE, YOU KNOW, THE REGION ON THE TRANSIT SIDE, BUT THE STATE, UH, AND OTHER REGIONS IN THE STATE AS WELL, OTHER NPOS, WE CAN COMPARE OURSELVES TO THAT, UH, UH, FOR THE HIGHWAY MEASURES.

UM, AND THEN I'LL BE ADDING SOME ADDITIONAL BACKGROUND INFORMATION.

AND THEN AFTER THAT, UH, WE'LL BE UPDATED AND TARGETS.

THEY GET INCORPORATED INTO THE PLANNING PRODUCTS, UH, NAMELY THE TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM AND THE REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION PLAN.

EVERY TIME Y'ALL ADOPT A NEW TARGETS, WE HAVE TO AMEND THE TIP AND RTP DOCUMENTATION TO INCLUDE THESE TARGETS.

UM, AND THEN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PERFORMANCE MEASURE SYSTEM, AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, THIS IS GOING TO BE SOMETHING THAT'S GOING TO BE EVOLVING OVER TIME.

UM, THIS INCLUDES THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE NEXT STATE OF SAFETY REPORT THAT I THINK WAS MENTIONED EARLIER.

UM, IT'S LINKED IN THE PRESENTATION AND IF YOU HAVEN'T HAD A CHANCE TO LOOK AT IT, I WOULD GREATLY ENCOURAGE ANYONE WHO'S INTERESTED IN SAFETY TO TAKE A DEEP DIVE INTO THAT REPORT.

UM, THERE'S A LOT OF FASCINATING INFORMATION.

IT BRINGS THE, IT HAS A CRASH RATE INFORMATION ALL THE WAY UP INTO 2018 AND REALLY BREAKS IT DOWN INTO ABOUT EVERY CATEGORY YOU CAN IMAGINE, UM, AND REALLY GIVES YOU A GOOD SENSE OF WHAT WE LOOK LIKE AS A REGION.

UM, AND THEN OF COURSE, UH, WE'VE GOT AN INFORMATION DASHBOARD, UH, THAT NEARS WORKING ON THAT WE WILL BE, UH, PUTTING ONLINE, WHICH WILL HOPEFULLY GIVE US A, REAL-TIME LOOK AT, UH, THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SYSTEM OVERALL IN REAL TIME.

AND THEN OF COURSE, AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, WE'LL BE EVALUATING PROJECT IMPACTS IN THE REGION OVER TIME, AS THEY GET BUILT THAT WAY WE CAN COMPARE WITH OUR ANALYSIS WHEN WE AWARDED THEM.

AND THEN AFTER THEY BUILT AND WE CAN REALLY TRACK OUR INVESTMENTS.

AND THEN IF WE NEED TO, YOU KNOW, ADJUST OUR POLICIES AND OUR CRITERIA, IF WE DON'T THINK WE'RE MEETING OUR TARGETS, OR IF WE'RE DOING EXCEEDINGLY WELL, WE MAY REALIZE WE'RE DOING SOMETHING REALLY.

RIGHT.

UM, SO THOSE ARE THE THINGS TO LOOK FORWARD IN THE FUTURE.

UM, AND ONE THING I DID NOT MENTION IS THAT CURRENTLY WE, WE SUPPORT THE STATEWIDE, UH, TARGETS, BUT I DO THINK AS THE SYSTEM EVOLVES AND WE GET MORE EFFICIENT, UM, AT GATHERING THIS INFORMATION AND, UH, AS WE BUILD THE SYSTEM OUT, I DO THINK IN THE NEXT FEW YEARS, WE MIGHT LOOK AT SETTING OUR OWN REGIONAL TARGETS OURSELVES.

UM, THAT WOULD PROBABLY BE BEST TO COINCIDE WITH A PROJECT SELECTION PROJECT CALL THAT WAY WE CAN ALIGN OUR TARGETS, UH, YOU KNOW, SPECIFICALLY WITH OUR INVESTMENT DECISIONS IN REAL TIME.

BUT, UM, I DIGRESS, UH, YOU KNOW, I KNOW WE'VE GOT SOME OTHER ITEMS TO GET TO, BUT, UH, THAT CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION, UH, STAFF AND THE TECHNICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE ARE RECOMMENDING, UH, ADOPTION OF THESE PERFORMANCE MEASURE, TARGET UPDATES, UH, WITH RESOLUTION 21, THREE SEVEN.

AND, UH, THAT CONCLUDES THE PRESENTATION.

IF YOU HAVE ANY SPECIFIC QUESTIONS ABOUT THE TARGETS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, RYAN.

UM, IS THERE AN OCEAN ON ITEM NUMBER SEVEN? OKAY.

NOT ALL AT ONCE.

I'LL MOVE.

I'LL MOVE.

WE ADOPT.

I HAVE NUMBER SEVEN.

IS THERE A CHAIR? OKAY.

MOTION BY LONG, SECOND BY KITCHEN FOR ITEM NUMBER SEVEN.

IS THERE, UH, IF YOU COULD, UM, EMILY, IF YOU COULD PULL THE PRESENTATION DOWN.

THANK YOU.

UM, IS THERE ANY DISCUSSION ON ITEM NUMBER SEVEN, UH, CHAIR? UM, YES.

MA'AM RYAN SAID AT THE END, WE, WE SUPPORT THE STATEWIDE TARGETS AND I SEEM TO RECALL THERE WAS SOME, UM, COLORFUL DISCUSSION ABOUT THIS LAST YEAR WHEN IT CAME UP AND WE DIDN'T HAVE, WE DIDN'T HAVE TIME TO MAKE CHANGES IN IT BECAUSE WE WERE UP AGAINST A DEADLINE, HAD TO ADOPT THE STATE TARGETS.

UM, AND I DON'T REMEMBER THE EXACT NUMBERS, BUT THE TAR, THE STATE TARGETS WERE THAT WE WOULD GET WORSE IN THE FUTURE IN, IN VARIOUS CATEGORIES.

UM, CAN YOU SPEAK TO THIS, RYAN? WHAT ARE THE STATE TARGETS IS TO APPEAR AS WHAT IS IT THAT WE'RE WE'RE SUPPORTING? BECAUSE I THINK WE ALL KIND OF FELT LIKE, WELL, WE DON'T REALLY WANT TO ADOPT THE TARGET TO GET WORSE IN THE FUTURE.

AND I KNOW THERE WERE SOME MORE TECHNICAL ISSUES AROUND IT, BUT THAT WAS MY RECOLLECTION FROM LAST YEAR'S DISCUSSION.

YEAH.

AND I THINK THAT WAS IN REGARD TO THE SAFETY TARGETS.

AND I CAN TALK MORE IN DEPTH ABOUT THAT IF YOU'D LIKE ME TO, UM, SO OUR GETS THAT WE'RE SUPPORTING, YOU MADE A REFERENCE AT THE END THAT WE'RE SUPPORTING STATE TARGETS, BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE, UH, FOR SAFETY, UH, PM ONE PAVEMENT BRIDGE CONDITIONS PMQ AND THEN A SYSTEM,

[00:45:01]

UH, PERFORMANCE PM, THREE.

THOSE ARE ALL, UM, TEXTS, TARGETS THAT WE SUPPORT.

UM, AND THEN I THINK THE, THE DISCUSSION LAST YEAR WAS IN REGARDS TO THE SAFETY TARGETS.

AND SO, WELL, I ALSO THOUGHT IT HAD TO DO WITH, UM, WHAT WAS THE THIRD CATEGORY? YOU SAID SYSTEM PERFORMANCE, I THINK WAS THE ONE WHERE PEOPLE WERE REALLY HAPPY.

I DON'T RECALL THE SYSTEM PERFORMANCE ONE, BUT YEAH.

SO ONE OF THE INTERESTING THINGS THAT REALLY COMES UP YEAR AFTER YEAR IS THAT OFTENTIMES, SO THE, THE TARGETS THAT ARE SET BY TEXTILES TYPICALLY, YOU KNOW, THEY LOOK AT THE NEXT YEAR AND BECAUSE TECH, UH, THE STATE OF TEXAS AND OUR REGION IN PARTICULAR, UH, IS GROWING AT SUCH A RAPID RATE THAT A LOT OF THESE METRICS ARE GOING UP.

UM, YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE EXPECTATIONS IS THAT, YOU KNOW, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE MORE PEOPLE ON THE ROAD BECAUSE THERE'S MORE PEOPLE IN THE REGION.

AND SO THAT MEANS THERE'S A LIKELIHOOD THAT THERE'S GOING TO BE MORE FATALITIES, BUT WHAT TXDOT DOES IS THEY SEE ANYTHING THAT HAS A POSITIVE TREND LINE, IF WE'RE EXPECTING MORE.

AND THEN THEY LOOK AT WHAT THAT EXPECTED NUMBERS ARE USED TO BE.

AND THEN THEY SET A TARGET THAT IS 2% BUT LOW THAT, UH, EXPECTED NUMBER.

UM, BUT ONE THING, AND I W W I MENTIONED IT LAST TIME, BUT I SHOULD PROBABLY POINT OUT THIS TIME AS WELL WHEN IT COMES TO SAFETY NUMBERS IN PARTICULAR IS THAT TXDOT HAS ADOPTED THE ROAD TO ZERO PROGRAM, WHICH IS LOOKING TO REDUCE FATALITIES TO ZERO BY THE YEAR 2050.

AND SO THEIR TARGETS ABOUT FAR MORE AGGRESSIVE, UM, THIS PAST YEAR IN REGARDS TO SAFETY.

SO THEY'RE IGNORING THAT, UH, THAT NUMBER THAT'S SUPPOSED TO, YOU KNOW, IN THEORY, IT WOULD GO HIGHER BECAUSE OF MORE PEOPLE MOVING TO THE STATE AND THEY'RE SETTING A MUCH MORE AGGRESSIVE TONE, UM, TARGET AGAINST THOSE SAFETY MEASURES.

AND THEY'VE, UH, INVESTED, I THINK IT WAS LIKE 600 MILLION ADDITIONAL DOLLARS INTO SAFETY PROJECTS IN THE STATE.

SO, UM, BUT THAT'S, WHAT IF YOU SEE SOMETHING GOING UP, IT'S BECAUSE OF THE POPULATION GROWTH IN TEXAS IN GENERAL, ACROSS ALL OF THESE MEASURES THAT WE LOOK AT.

GREAT.

AND THANKS FOR THE REMINDER ABOUT, UH, TEXTS OUT ADOPTING SAFETY TARGETS.

THAT'S REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT.

THANKS.

WELL, THANKS COMMISSIONER.

UM, ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR RYAN ON ITEM NUMBER SEVEN? OKAY.

WE'LL GO AGAIN IN THE REVERSE ORDER.

IS THERE ANYBODY AGAINST, UM, THE MOTION TO, UM, ADOPT ITEM NUMBER SEVEN? OKAY.

SEEING AND HEARING NONE, A MOTION FOR ITEM NUMBER SEVEN, RATHER PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

UM, WE MOVE

[8. Discussion and Take Appropriate Action on FY 2020 & 2021 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) Amendment Four]

ON TO ITEM NUMBER EIGHT, DISCUSSING TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION ON 2020, 2021.

UM, YOU PWP AMENDMENT FOUR.

GOOD AFTERNOON.

THIS IS THERESA WITH CAMPO.

UM, THIS ITEM IS TO TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION ON THE FISCAL YEAR 2020 AND 2021 UPW P AMENDMENT.

UM, THE UNIFIED PLANNING WORK PROGRAM IS A FEDERALLY REQUIRED DOCUMENT THAT IDENTIFIES THE PLANNING PRIORITIES AND ACTIVITIES TO BE CARRIED OUT WITHIN THE CAMPO REGION.

UM, THE PWP IS ADOPTED EVERY TWO YEARS AND MAY BE AMENDED.

UM, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

ON, UM, JANUARY 12TH, CAMPO RECEIVED A REQUEST FROM CAPITAL METRO TO ADD THEIR PILOT PROGRAM FOR TRANSIT ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT PLANNING, UM, AND TO ADD FUNDING OF 900,000 OF FTA GRANT FUNDS AND 225,000 OF LOCAL FUNDS.

UM, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

SO STAFF IS REQUESTING APPROVAL OF THE FISCAL YEAR 2020 AND 2021.

YOU PWP AMENDMENT NUMBER FOUR AND IT'S ACCOMPANYING RESOLUTION.

UM, UM, BEFORE I GET THAT, UM, KAT METRO HAS, UM, SENT A REQUEST TODAY TO ADD EQUITABLE IN FRONT OR BEFORE, UM, TRANSIT ORIENTED, UM, DEVELOPMENT.

SO IF, UM, APPROVAL IS, IS MADE, THEN WE WOULD ADD, UM, EQUITABLE, UM, AS WELL TO THE AMENDMENT.

AND I'LL TAKE ANY QUESTIONS.

HE MET HIM CHAIR.

THIS IS, THIS IS ASHBY.

JUST ONE THING BEFORE, UM, WE ASKED OPEN AND A SECOND, WE DID RECEIVE SOME QUESTIONS FROM SOME OF THE BOARD MEMBERS WONDERING WHAT, UM, THE LOCAL FUNDS MEANT.

AND WHEN, WHEN WE SAY LOCAL FUNDS AND THE CONTEXT OF THIS SPECIFIC FIRE PLANNING WORK PROGRAM AMENDMENT, WE MEAN, UM, UH, FUNDS GENERATED BY, UM, CAPITOL METRICALS AND SAYING IT'S NOT LOCAL, UM, FROM,

[00:50:01]

FROM, UH, CAMPO.

OKAY.

SO THANK YOU FOR THAT CLARIFICATION CLARIFICATION.

IT'S LOCAL FUNDS FROM BASICALLY FROM CAP METRO, NOT CAMPO, CORRECT.

GOTCHA.

OKAY.

UM, ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, UM, FOR TERESA ON ITEM NUMBER EIGHT? OKAY.

IS THERE A MOTION, UM, TO ADOPT THAT ITEM NUMBER EIGHT, COUNCIL MEMBER ALTER AND SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER KITCHEN, ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION, ANYBODY AGAINST ITEM NUMBER EIGHT? OKAY.

UM, ITEM NUMBER EIGHT, PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

UM, AND I WANT

[5. Discussion and Take Appropriate Action on February 8, 2021 Meeting Minutes (Part 2 of 2)]

TO CIRCLE BACK REAL QUICK.

UH, WE HAD SKIPPED THE, UM, MINUTES ON ITEM NUMBER FIVE, BECAUSE I THINK THERE WAS A QUESTION ABOUT, UM, COUNCIL MEMBER OR OUR MAYOR HOUSTON.

YOU HAD A QUESTION ON ITEM NUMBER ON THE MINUTES, AND WE WAITED FOR YOU TO GET ON TO, UM, DO YOU WANT TO ADDRESS THAT QUESTION? UM, MY QUESTION WAS WHEN WE DISCUSSED THE BYLAWS LAST TIME, BUT THE LINK TO THE, UH, VIDEO FROM THE MINUTES WAS NOT FINDING A POSITION FOR ME, SO I WAS NOT ABLE TO GO AND FIND IT.

YES, MA'AM IT WAS JANUARY MEETING, NOT FEBRUARY MEETING.

OKAY.

NEVERMIND.

WE, UM, AT OUR FEBRUARY MEETING, WE ADOPTED THE MINUTES REFLECTING THAT DISCUSSION.

SO THAT WAS WHEN YOU'VE SLEPT SINCE THEN.

THANK YOU.

APPRECIATE IT.

OKAY.

UM, SO IS THERE A MOTION TO ADOPT THE MINUTES, UM, FROM ITEM NUMBER FIVE? OKAY.

UM, UH, MAYOR PRO 10 MADISON HARPER.

THERE IS A MOTION OR A SECOND.

OKAY.

SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER.

MATEAH ALRIGHT.

UM, ANYBODY AGAINST, UM, ITEM NUMBER FIVE? ALRIGHT.

UH, MOTION PASSES UNANIMOUSLY FOR ITEM NUMBER FIVE.

OKAY.

SO WE WILL JUMP BACK

[9. Briefing on CAMPO Transportation Policy Board Bylaws Subcommittee]

NOW TO ITEM NUMBER NINE, WHICH IS AN INFORMATION ONLY ITEM.

UM, AND I THINK, UH, LET'S SEE, TIM, ARE YOU TAKING THIS ITEM? I'LL START IT.

UH, YEAH.

UH, MADAM CHAIR, I'M GOING TO JUST START THIS AND THEN, UH, RUN THROUGH A VERY, UH, BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE MAJOR POINTS OF POTENTIAL AMENDMENT OF THE BYLAWS, AND THEN TURN IT OVER TO THE HARDWORKING SUBCOMMITTEE THAT YOU APPOINTED, UH, WHICH IS VICE CHAIR, KITCHEN, JUDGE, OAKLEY, COUNCILMEN MATEO, AND COMMISSIONER JONES.

UM, YOU ALL HAVE A COPY.

I THINK THE MOST CURRENT COPY OF BOTH THE BYLAWS AS THEY EXIST AND THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS, MOST OF THOSE AMENDMENTS WERE, UH, ARE REALLY CLEAN UP ITEMS. UH, SOME OF WHICH ARE REQUIRED TO BRING US INTO COMPLIANCE WITH OPEN MEETINGS LAW, BUT THE MAJOR, UM, UH, PROPOSED OR DISCUSSED, UM, AMENDMENTS THAT THE SUBCOMMITTEE REVIEWED HAD TO DO WITH OFFICERS UNDER SECTION THREE D UH, BY THE CREATION OF A NEW OFFICER POSITION FOR A SECRETARY AND A PROVISION THAT ALL THREE OFFICERS, THE CHAIR VICE CHAIR AND SECRETARY WOULD BE, UH, UH, COME FROM DIFFERENT COUNTIES WITHIN THE CAMP OR REGION.

THE OTHER AREA WAS IN SECTION THREE E UNDER MEETINGS, UH, WHILE THE CHAIR WOULD CONTINUE TO HAVE THE POWER TO PUT ITEMS ON THE AGENDA, UH, DISCUSSED AMENDMENT WOULD HAVE, UH, ANY AGREEMENT BY ANY SEVEN MEMBERS OF THE BOARD COULD ALSO PLACE ITEMS ON THE TBB AGENDA.

AND THEN THERE'S A PROVISION IN THERE THAT SAYS AS, UH, EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN THE BYLAWS, UH, ROBERT'S RULES OF ORDER WOULD, UH, BE APPLICABLE TO, UH, YOUR MEETINGS.

UH, THE NEXT, UH, MAJOR AREA OF AMENDMENTS HAS TO DO WITH THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE UNDER SECTION FOUR.

A LOT OF WHICH IS CLARIFY CLARIFYING, BUT, UM, STILL EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.

UH, THE THREE OFFICERS PLUS THE, UH, JOINT POWERS AGREEMENT SIGNATORIES WOULD ALWAYS BE ON THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE AND THE JOINT POWERS AGREEMENT SIGNATORIES WOULD

[00:55:01]

HAVE ONLY ONE REP EACH ON THE COMMITTEE.

THE CHAIR COULD APPOINT OTHER, UM, UM, PEOPLE TO, UH, THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE FROM OTHER JURISDICTIONS, BUT THE TOTAL MEMBERSHIP OF THE COMMITTEE WOULD NEVER EQUAL OR EXCEED A QUORUM OF THE POLICY BOARD.

UH, THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE WOULD MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS ONLY, AND THE AMENDMENT, UH, ALLOWS NOW FOR ALTERNATES FOR EACH OF THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEES BY THEIR RESPECTIVE JURISDICTIONS.

AND THEN THE FINAL AREA OF DISCUSSED AMENDMENTS HAD TO DO WITH, UH, THE ROLE OF THE TAC.

AND THERE'S TWO, UH, DISCUSSED AMENDMENTS THERE.

I THINK BOTH OF WHICH ARE IN BRACKETS, THEY HAVE TO DO WITH A, UH, UH, UH, A POSSIBLE AMENDMENT WHERE ALL TPB ACTION ITEMS WOULD BE POSTED FOR DISCUSSION AND RECOMMEND RECOMMENDATION AT A PRECEDING TAC MEETING.

AND, UM, NO TACK REVIEW OR RECOMMENDATION WOULD BE, UH, REQUIRED ON ADMINISTRATIVE ITEMS FOR THE CAMPO OFFICE AND THE TPB.

WELL, THOSE ARE YOUR MAJOR AMENDMENTS THAT, UM, WERE DISCUSSED OR UNDER PROPOSAL FROM YOUR SUBCOMMITTEE.

AND WITH THAT, I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO THE RESPECTIVE MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE FOR THEIR, FOR THEIR, UH, COMMENTS OR DISCUSSION.

SO, UM, WE'LL GO IN, I DON'T KNOW THAT THERE WAS A SPECIFIC CHAIR OF THE COMMITTEE, BUT I WANT TO HEAR FROM ALL MEMBERS.

UM, AND SO, UH, COUNCIL MEMBER KITCHEN HAS HER HAND QUICKLY UP.

SO, UH, WE'LL, WE'LL HEAR FROM YOU FIRST AND THEN, UM, WE'LL GO AND, UH, COUNCIL MEMBER, UH, MATTEO NEXT AND THEN COMMISSIONER JONES AND THEN BATTING CLEANUP WILL BE JUDGED LOCALLY, SO, OKAY.

OKAY.

SO, UM, SO, UH, THANK YOU, TIM.

I THINK THAT, UH, YOU OUTLINED THE MAJOR CHANGES.

I JUST WANT TO REMIND PEOPLE THAT, UM, WHAT'S DIFFERENT ABOUT THIS THAN WHAT WE WERE TALKING ABOUT AS A GROUP IS THAT WE, WE REALLY SIMPLIFIED THINGS.

AND I THINK WE WERE, WE WERE ALL IN AGREEMENT ON THIS THAT WE WOULD DO IS WE WOULD SUGGEST ADDING A SECRETARY POSITION INSTEAD OF TRYING TO DO A SECOND VICE CHAIR.

SO WHAT WE'VE, WHAT WE'RE SUGGESTING IS TO ADD A SECRETARY POSITION, TO ALLOW FOR SOME MORE OPPORTUNITY FOR LEADERSHIP, BUT NOT DO ANY OF THE OTHER MORE INVOLVED KINDS OF THINGS THAT WERE PROPOSED.

IN OTHER WORDS, EVERYTHING ELSE IS PRETTY MUCH THE SAME.

WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT ANY KIND OF ROTATION OF POSITIONS.

WE LEFT ALL THAT OUT.

WE KEPT WITH WHERE WE WERE, AND WE WERE REALLY JUST TALKING ABOUT, UM, ADDING A S A SECRETARY POSITION.

SO, AND THE FEELING FROM THE COMMITTEE, AND I'LL LET OTHERS SPEAK TO THIS IS THAT, BUT THAT, YOU KNOW, ALLOW FOR SOME ADDITIONAL, UM, OPPORTUNITY FOR LEADERSHIP, BUT THAT THE OTHER THINGS THAT WE WERE THINKING ABOUT WHERE WE'RE NOT REALLY NEEDED, UH, THAT WE DIDN'T NEED A SECOND VICE CHAIR, AND WE DIDN'T NEED TO GUARANTEE ANY KIND OF ROTATIONS AMONGST THEM.

SO, SO THAT'S THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE THAT YOU'RE SEEING HERE IS MUCH MORE SIMPLE THAN WHAT WE HAD IN FRONT OF US, UH, BEFORE THE OTHER THING I WANT TO COMMENT ON IS THE, UM, UH, THE, UM, THE TAC, UH, AND THAT'S ON PAGE 11.

I THINK WE'RE, I BELIEVE WE'RE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE IN TERMS OF WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH THERE.

WE'RE, UH, WE'RE STILL KINDA TALKING A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE LANGUAGE, AND SO I MIGHT HAVE SOME SUGGESTIONS ABOUT SOME MORE CLARIFYING LANGUAGE, BUT AS TIM PUT, PUT IT, WHAT WE WANTED TO MAKE CLEAR IS THAT ADMINISTRATIVE ITEMS FOR, UH, YOU KNOW, FOR, UH, CAMPO, UH, STAFFING AND OTHER ADMINISTRATIVE TYPE OF ACTIONS DID NOT NEED TO GO TO THE TAC SO THAT, YOU KNOW, ANY OFFICE ADMINISTRATION OR WHOM HUMAN RESOURCE ISSUES OR STAFFING ISSUES, UH, THOSE ARE THINGS FOR, TO DEAL WITH, AND THERE'S NOT A NEED FOR THEM TO GO TO THE TECH.

SO, UM, THE LANGUAGE THAT'S IN THE BACKUP RIGHT NOW IS INTENDED.

I BELIEVE IN MY, UM, COLLEAGUES CAN SPEAK TO THIS TOO, BUT I THINK WE'RE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE THAT WE WERE TRYING TO GET AT ADMINISTRATIVE THINGS.

SO, UM, THOSE ARE THE TWO THINGS I'M WANTING TO, TO POINT OUT.

I THINK, TIM, YOU, YOU LAID OUT WELL, EVERYTHING ELSE THAT WE TALKED ABOUT, OKAY.

COUNCIL MEMBER MATEAH, UM, WE'D LIKE TO HEAR FROM YOU NEXT ON THAT, PLEASE.

WELL, FIRST OF
