California Transportation Commission Releases Draft SB 1 Implementation Guidelines

Project Lists Due to CTC Sept. 15

July 3, 2017
The California Transportation Committee (CTC) released its Draft Local Streets and Roads Program Reporting Guidelines  last Friday for the implementation of SB 1 (Beall), the landmark transportation funding package that was signed into law in April 28.
 
Cities have an opportunity to submit public comments and attend a workshop on the guidelines.

SB 1 provides new Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account (RMRA) formula funds for cities and counties to address road maintenance, rehabilitation, and critical safety needs on local streets and roads. In order to be eligible to receive RMRA funds, cities and counties must report projects they are funding with RMRA to CTC by Sept. 15.
 
The League of California Cities® and California State Association of Counties have been working with the CTC to draft these guidelines. The purpose of the guidelines is to describe RMRA reporting requirements and procedures for cities and counties. The guidelines also address the roles and responsibilities of the CTC and the State Controller in carrying out the statutory objectives of SB 1 related to RMRA formula funding for local streets and roads.  
 
Cities are encouraged to review the guidelines and submit public comments by Friday, July 14. Please email comments to Laura Pennebaker.
 
Public Workshop
 
CTC will also hold a public workshop to discuss the draft guidelines. The CTC will email an agenda and call-in information prior to the workshop. The workshop will be held:
 
Tuesday, July 18, 9 a.m. to noon
Caltrans Headquarters, Room 2116
1120 N Street
Sacramento, CA 95814
