3.  FY23 UPWP Amendment: FTA Transit-Oriented Development Grant - Norristown High Speed Line – King of Prussia Extension Value Capture/Multimodal Accessibility Study

This study is being funded by a grant through the Federal Transit Administration’s Pilot Program for Transit Oriented Development. SEPTA is the  direct recipient of the funding for the project and will oversee the work of a  consultant.  DVRPC is not conducting this work, and the funding is not passing- through DVRPC.  Amending the DVRPC UPWP to include the project is a requirement of the FTA grant program.

4.  FY23 UPWP Amendment – Update to DVRPC 2015 Land Use File

Since 1990, the DVRPC Land Use File has been updated every five years.  The 2020 update was delayed due to the pandemic, and DVRPC is now proposing to restart the collection of this valuable data layer.

Federal regulations require that Metropolitan Planning Organizations self- certify that the Regional Transportation Planning Process is carried out in conformance with applicable federal regulations. Staff will request Board approval.
