''A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY OF WILSONVILLE AUTHORIZING STAFF TO APPLY FOR ODOT TRANSPORTATION ENHANCEMENT (TE) PROGRAM FUNDING TO BUILD A SHARED USE BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN PATH UNDER INTERSTATE-5.''
'''WHEREAS''', the Transportation Enhancement (TE) program provides federal highway funds for projects that strengthen the cultural, aesthetic or environmental value of our transportation system; and
'''WHEREAS''', eligible projects include the provision of bicycle and pedestrian facilities, as well as landscaping and other scenic beautification; and
'''WHEREAS''', the Wilsonville City Council desires to provide a safe and efficient bicycle and pedestrian environment throughout the community and particularly in the vicinity of the Wilsonville Road and Interstate-5 (I-5) interchange; and
'''WHEREAS''', due to the location of I-5 in the center of the city, bicyclists and pedestrians who wish to cross from one side of the community to the other find it difficult and often intimidating, deterring the use of desirable non-motorized modes of transportation; and
'''WHEREAS''', due to the volume of vehicular traffic, and the planned width of Wilsonville Road, there is a strong desire to enhance bicycle and pedestrian safety, while improving aesthetics; and
'''WHEREAS''', the proposed streetscape enhancements will improve the overall appearance and function of bicycle and pedestrian facilities in the vicinity of the I-5/Wilsonville Road interchange encouraging more users of non-motorized forms of transportation; and
'''WHEREAS''', ODOT requires adoption of a Resolution by City Council endorsing the proposed project as part of the application submittal requirements; and
'''WHEREAS''', Staff has completed the Notice of Intent application and has received approval to proceed to full application; and
'''WHEREAS''', the proposed TE amount is $750,000.00 with a required 10.27% match; and
'''WHEREAS''', as part of the proposed enhancement package, the City would be required to perform routine maintenance of the enhancements requiring an IGA between ODOT and the City;
'''NOW, THEREFORE, THE CITY OF WILSONVILLE RESOLVES AS FOLLOWS''':
1. Approval of this Resolution authorizes the Staff to apply for ODOT Transportation Enhancement program funds for the construction of a raised multi-modal path under I-5 on both sides of Wilsonville Road.
