BACKGROUND:

Measure K is the half-cent general sales tax initially approved by San Mateo County voters in November 2012 and extended in November 2016 for a total of thirty years.

 

On February 12, 2019, the Board of Supervisors (Board) held a study session on Measure K expenditures and anticipated revenue for fiscal years (FY) 2019-21. The Board-appointed Measure K sub-committee, consisting of Supervisor Pine and Supervisor Canepa, convened the study session to, among other things, work with staff to facilitate the Board’s development of Measure K priorities and continuing initiatives for FY 2019-21. The Board approved $3.75 million in one-time loans or grants each fiscal year for FY 2019-21, divided equally among the five supervisorial districts, for district-discretionary needs and projects. District 3 has submitted a request to use its district-discretionary Measure K funds as shown below and described in the Project Summary section of this memorandum:

District/Project

Amount

District 3 (Supervisor Horsley) - Transfer district-discretionary Measure K funding to the Department of Public Works for the construction phase of the Midcoast Multi-modal/Parallel Trail.

$529,290

 

DISCUSSION:

This is a request to authorize a transfer of funds from Non-Departmental Services to the Department of Public Works, in an amount not to exceed $529,290, for the construction phase of Midcoast Multimodal Trail (MMT).

District-discretionary Measure K funding for this project has been previously provided as listed below:

                     November 15, 2016: $250,000 provided to the Parks Department for completion of the Midcoast Multi-Modal Trail planning designs.

                     June 6, 2017: $56,000 provided to the Parks Department for the construction phase of the Midcoast Multi-Modal Trail.

                     October 2, 2018: $85,000 provided to the Parks Department for the construction phase of the Multi-Modal Trail.

The Midcoast Multi-Modal Trail (MMT) is a bicycle and pedestrian commuter trail that will provide alternative means of transportation for residents of the Midcoast; residents will be able to safely access neighboring communities, town centers, schools, and recreational destinations without having to travel on the highway. The MMT, commonly referred to as the Parallel Trail, was conceptualized in the community developed Highway 1 Safety and Mobility Improvement Study, Phase 1. The MMT will serve residents of all ages and abilities as it will be separated from the highway and have minimal interaction with vehicular traffic.  The long-term plan for the MMT is to connect Montara to Miramar where it will join with the Naomi Patridge Trail in Half Moon Bay. This will provide for a continuous, regional bicycle and pedestrian commuter trail. By providing residents the opportunity to walk and bicycle throughout the coast side, congestion on the highway is expected to decrease and residents would have the ability to travel more easily throughout the Midcoast.


The Multi-Modal Trail project will consist of construction of an 0.86-mile multi-use trail on 10.39 acres of undeveloped land within the Caltrans right-of-way land in the unincorporated community of El Granada, California. The site runs parallel to Cabrillo Highway (Highway 1) between Coronado Street and Mirada Road. The
MMT will  become a component of the larger California Coastal Trail (CCT), which is a network of public trails for walkers, bikers, equestrians, and others along the 1,200-mile California coastline. Furthermore, the Project will enable people to safely commute by bicycle from El Granada to areas south of El Granada, and when additional segments are completed, serve as a connection to the Naomi Patridge trail which connects to the City of Half Moon Bay.

Grant funds in the amount of $500,000 were secured from the San Mateo County Transportation Authority (TA) to initiate planning for this trail segment. The TA grant, secured by the Parks Department, in addition to matching local funds, allowed the Planning and Building Department and the consultant to develop the 100% design documents. The TA grant also allowed for a robust community input process which helped shape the trail design.  Additional construction funds in the amount of $400,000 have been recommended in the form of a grant awarded by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission of Transportation Development Act, Article III funding, on the recommendation from the City/County Association of Governments Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee.  Local match funds, including those from Measure K revenue from FY 2016-17 and FY 2017-18 also have contributed to funding.

The combination of the previous Measure K allocations, the TA grant, and the recommended Metropolitan Transportation Commission funds have funded approximately 75% of this project.  The proposed ATR for district-discretionary Measure K funds from District 3 to the Department of Public Works will fill the remaining gap and allow the construction phase to be fully funded.
