PUBLIC HEARING: 6-Year Transportation Improvement Program Resolution

RCW 35.77.010 requires the City to adopt a six-year plan for coordinated transportation program expenditures by July 1st of each year. After the program is adopted, it is submitted to the Secretary of Transportation. Adopting the TIP allows the City to apply for federal grants to secure funding for the projects. The current Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is for 2019 – 2024. It is substantially similar to the 2018 – 2023 TIP, and includes the following projects:

 

·         Douglas Road – S. Church to Imhoff – Reconstruct & widen streets

·         Ferndale Terrace Improvement Project – Reconstruct & widen streets

·         Legoe Avenue – Reconstruct & widen streets

·         Main Street – Barrett Rd to East City limits – Reconstruct & widen streets

·         Main/LaBounty Roundabout – 2 lane roundabout, frontage, & signal improvements

·         Pavement Rehabilitation Program – City wide

·         Portal Way Corridor, including pedestrian & bike improvements

·         Sidewalk Program – Repair/Replace/New – City wide

INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT – Jail Facility Use

This agreement sets the terms and conditions for the incarceration of City residents in the Whatcom County Jail Facility. Due to the need to renovate the existing facility, the per diem fees have increased from the previous agreement. The term of the agreement is July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2020.

APPROVAL: East Slater Notice of Intent to Annex

Approval of the Notice of Intent to Annex is the first step in the annexation process. A “yes” vote from Council allows the applicants to proceed with the annexation process. The process culminates in a formal Petition to Annex that will be accompanied by fees necessary to pay for a Fiscal Impact Analysis of the costs/benefits of annexation.

The East Slater Urban Growth Area (approximately 149 acres) was added to Ferndale’s UGA in 2016. At that time, the City Council determined that it should be made eligible for annexation, per the City’s Annexation Phasing Plan. All or a majority of the land would likely be subject to a Mixed-Use Commercial or General Business zoning designation.

Councilmember Watson moved, and Councilmember Xczar seconded, to approve the agenda bill. MOTION CARRIED 7-0.
