2. Approve the Minutes of the November 15, 2016 Meeting – ACTION*  minutes

3. Recommend Approval of the 2017 State and Federal Legislative Program – ACTION*  memo

Every year the Transportation Authority Board adopts a legislative program to guide the agency’s transportation advocacy efforts at the state and federal levels. The proposed State and Federal Legislative Program reflects key principles, gathered from our common positions with other local transportation sales tax authorities around the state, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, as well as our understanding of the most pressing issues facing the region, San Francisco, and our partner agencies that deliver transportation projects in the city. The proposed program is presented in the form of principles, not specific bills or legislative initiatives, in order to allow staff the necessary flexibility to respond to legislative proposals and specific policy concerns that may arise over the course of the legislative session in Sacramento or Washington D.C. Our 2017 Legislative Program continues many of the themes from the previous legislative sessions and emphasizes issues of stabilizing and protecting existing transportation funds, authorizing new transportation revenues, securing funding for San Francisco projects, advancing high-speed rail investment, supporting allocation of state cap and trade revenues for transportation, promoting Vision Zero safety goals, engaging in the implementation of new transportation technologies, aspiring to meet environmental and greenhouse gas reduction goals and supporting increased revenues and redevelopment-like tools to help accelerate the production of affordable housing.

4. Recommend Increasing the Amount of the Professional Services Contract with Parsons Brinckerhoff, Inc. by $960,000, to a Total Amount Not to Exceed $1,210,000 through December 31, 2019 for System Engineering Services for the Treasure Island Mobility Management Program, and Authorizing the Executive Director to Modify Contract Payment Terms and Non-Material Contract Terms and Conditions – ACTION*  memo

On April 1, 2014, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved a resolution designating the Transportation Authority as the Treasure Island Mobility Management Agency (TIMMA) to implement the Treasure Island Transportation Implementation Plan in support of the Treasure Island/Yerba Buena Island Development Project. In September 2014, through Resolution 15-06, the Transportation Authority Board authorized the award of a contract to Parsons Brinckerhoff, Inc. for system engineering services for the Treasure Island Mobility Management Program (Program). The action authorized Phase I of Program, which includes preparation of the Concept of Operations and the draft System Engineering Management Plan (SEMP), for an amount not to exceed $250,000, with the option to authorize additional phases of the work at a future date. The TIMMA budget and Work Program call for completion of Phases II and III of the scope of work in Fiscal Years 2016/17 to 2018/19. The scope of work for the first year was included in the adopted Fiscal Year 2016/17 budget. This work includes completing the final SEMP supporting TIMMA in the procurement of a contractor to install the toll system and oversight of the installation and testing of the toll equipment. The toll system is scheduled to be complete and open for operations in late 2019 concurrent with the first occupancy of new housing on Treasure Island.
