PUBLIC COMMENTS ON AGENDA and NON-AGENDA ITEMS

ACTION ITEMS

1. Minutes of Meeting of October 27, 2022

2. DVRPC Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Actions

The dynamic nature of funding transportation improvements and the need to remain within financial constraint require amendments or modifications to the TIP. The following projects require formal TIP Amendments or Modifications this month for the FY 2023 TIP for PA.

a) PA23-08: Wanamaker Avenue over Darby Creek (Bridge) (MPMS #92323), Delaware County

b) PA23-09: Schuylkill River Swing Bridge TIGER VII (MPMS #102274), City of Philadelphia

c) PA23-10: MLK Drive Bridge (MPMS #108129), City of Philadelphia

3.  DVRPC Adoption of PJMCCC Charter

The PJM Cities and Communities Coalition (PJMCCC) launched in 2018 to coordinate the efforts of more than a dozen local governments in the PJM territory that are interested in removing and preventing barriers to decarbonization solutions in their regional wholesale electricity market. DVRPC has been invited to join PJMCCC at the no-cost “Educational Member Tier.” Educational members do not have the ability to participate in the coalition’s agenda or policy goals, and are not named in any PJMCCC documents, but they can access the organization's educational opportunities. DVRPC’s application to PJMCCC has been accepted for the Educational Member Tier, and the final step is for DVRPC’s Board to adopt the PJM CCC Charter.

4. New Travel Options Program (TOP) Project

An additional project is proposed for funding under the Travel Options Program (TOP) to promote corporate transit benefit programs to businesses in the region. The PA portion of this project will focus on SEPTA's new Key Advantage program; a forthcoming NJ portion will focus on similar programs from PATCO and NJ Transit. The goal is to encourage more employees to use transit as their main commute mode.

5. Release of Draft FY24 DVRPC Unified Planning Work Program for Review and Comment

Authorization is being sought to distribute for review and comment the Draft FY24 Planning Work Program.
