PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE FY 2015 UNIFIED PLANNING WORK PROGRAM (UPWP) TO FUND A SPANISH FORT CAUSEWAY MASTER PLAN AND OVERLAY PROJECT WITH LEFTOVER FY 2013 AND FY 2014 PLANNING FUNDS
The Eastern Shore Metropolitan Planning Organization (ESMPO) has added an item to the February 11, 2015, Policy Board Meeting Agenda regarding a proposed amendment to the FY 2015 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP). The Policy Board meeting will take place at 10:00 AM at Daphne City Hall.
In FY 2013 and FY 2014 the MPO operated below its allocated budget resulting in a surplus of unspent federal planning funds totaling approximately $60,898. These funds can only be carried over for three (3) years. A portion of these funds have been allocated for use on traffic signal study. The City of Spanish Fort has requested that the balance of these funds be used to hire a consultant to prepare a Spanish Fort Causeway Master Plan and Overlay at an estimated total cost of $45,000 or less with the federal portion amounting to $36,000 or less. The MPO is required to include all programed federal planning funds in the MPO’s Unified Planning Work Program and has therefore prepared a proposed amended FY 2015 UPWP that includes the new project.
The proposed Amended UPWP can be viewed on the ESMPO website, www.easternshorempo.org. The changes to the document are summarized below:
- New Resolution (Page vii)
- Adding Project Info to Task 9.0 (Page 41)
- Adding Project Info to Planning Funds Overview Table (Page 48)
- Adding Project Info to Planning Funds Detailed View (Page 49)
Written comments regarding the proposed amendment can be submitted to MPO staff through February 10, 2015, by emailing email@example.com. The public will also be provided an opportunity to comment at the Policy Board meeting.
