30
31         1. MPO Strategic Priorities (Leigh Holt, MPO)
32
33            Mr. David Hutchinson, MPO, explained that over the last several years, the MPO has
34            undergone significant changes due to both external and internal factors:
35
36                    •    Externally, Federal laws mandating performance measures are being
37                         successfully integrated into MPO processes and will continue to impact the
38                         organization’s way of work.
39                    •    Internally, the staff of nine has celebrated four retirements and one career
40                         advancement outside the organization in the last five years.
41
42            Although change means the loss of institutional knowledge, it is also an opportunity for
43            reorganization and regrouping. The MPO planning team recently participated in a retreat to
44            look back at organizational accomplishments in order to preserve recent history.
45
46            Staff also looked forward, identifying key tasks and mandates for the next two calendar
47            years. The result of this analysis is the MPO Top Ten and the 2018 Strategic Priorities. This
48            evaluation will be used to:
49
50                    •    Create an organizational structure and staff assignments to accomplish MPO
51                         Board priorities,

33                         process.
34                   ▪     The certification review evaluates the MPO’s compliance with numerous
35                         statutory provisions of 23 U.S.C. 134, 49 U.S.C. 1607 and associated Federal
36                         requirements.
37                   ▪     Throughout the site visit, opportunities were afforded to local elected/appointed
38                         officials and the general public to provide their insights on the MPO’s planning
39                         process.
40                   ▪     In addition to assessing the MPO’s progress in addressing findings from the
41                         previous certification review, the recent site visit and review focused on the
42                         MPO’s current and/or future implementation of Federal metropolitan
43                         transportation planning requirements.
44
45            The presentation included an overview of the TMA certification review process and review
46            findings and the FHWA/FTA certification action issued as part of the TMA Certification
47            Review Report and cover letter; The Sarasota/Manatee MPO received 6 Noteworthy
48            Practices, 2 Corrective Actions and 2 Recommendations.
49

20   VII.   REPORTS AND PRESENTATIONS (May Require Board Action)
21
22          1. Use of Federal Funds (Leigh Holt, MPO)
23
24             Ms. Leigh Holt, MPO Staff, explained that at the December 2017 meeting, Chair Baugh
25             directed staff to schedule a presentation on Federal transportation funding. The request
26             followed a discussion of the differing requirements for using federal and state funds and the
27             appropriate projects for each source of funds.
28
29             As discussed, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) budget includes both federal
30             and state revenues with only about 25% coming from USDOT. The remaining 75% comes
31             primarily from state gas tax, motor vehicle fees, documentary stamps, and rental car
32             charges.
33
34             Some state and federal funds are distributed to counties or regions by formulas. However,
35             there are significant funds that are distributed by the FDOT districts or the Central Office
36             based on criteria established in state or federal law. Staff will be analyzing various funding
37             codes and reviewing with the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to make sure local
38             projects are being submitted for consideration for all major funding sources.
39

44             zones, and to and from the Barrier Islands.
