3. Draft FY 2011 Unified Planning Work Program  pdf

The Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) documents the urban transportation planning activities and projects anticipated to be accomplished in the Tulsa TMA beginning July 1, 2010.  The UPWP includes a description of proposed work activities and serves as a management tool for the participating entities.  In addition, the UPWP defines the functional and financial responsibilities of the participating agencies.  Federal transportation funding assistance to state, regional, and local governments and agencies is contingent on an annually approved UPWP.  The TTC recommends approval.

4. Transportation Improvement Program Amendments  pdf

In January the Transportation Policy Committee selected projects for funding in the Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC) program and the New Freedom (NF) program.   INCOG is seeking an amendment to include $339,769 in New Freedom funds with $306,499 in local matching funds to Morton Comprehensive Health Services, Kibois Community Action Foundation, and INCOG for administration.  Further the amendment includes $699,740 in JARC funds with $647,769 in matching funds to Dayspring Villa, Morton Comprehensive Health Services, Oklahoma Partnership for School Readiness Foundation, Tulsa Transit and INCOG for administration. 

Further, INCOG is seeking to amend the FFY 2010 Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality program (CMAQ) to include projects totaling $650,000 in federal funds and $141,250 in local matching funds.  The projects include the Alternative Fuels grant program, Community Cycling Project, Green Traveler program, Ozone Alert! program, Bicycle Parking Program, and Tulsa Transit outreach and operations.

These projects are consistent with the Destination 2030 transportation plan and the Transportation Technical Committee recommends approval.

5. MOU for Transportation Planning  pdf

In 1975, ODOT, INCOG and MTTA entered into a Memorandum of Understanding for transportation planning in the Tulsa Transportation Management Area.  During the Federal Certification Review conducted the summer of 2009, the FHWA and FTA recommended updating the MOU since it remained unchanged since 1975.  Staff has drafted a revised MOU for consideration by the TPC and recommends approval.
