title

AN ORDINANCE relating to appropriations for the Delridge Multimodal Corridor Project; amending the 2018 Budget (Ordinance 125475), as amended by Ordinance 125635, to lift the proviso on 2018 Mobility-Capital Budget Control Level expenditures.

body

WHEREAS, The City of Seattle’s 2018 Adopted Budget included a proviso on funds allocated to the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) concerning the design of the Delridge Multimodal Corridor Project; and

WHEREAS, the proviso in Green Sheet 49-1-A-1-2018 stated that “[n]o more than $1.4 million of the funds appropriated in the Mobility-Capital Budget Control Level may be expended for the Delridge Multimodal Corridor Project (TC367810) (adopted in the 2018-2023 Capital Improvement Program), until authorized by future ordinance”; and

WHEREAS, the City Council adopted Ordinance 125635 in August 2018, lifting the 2018 budget proviso but limiting any further expenditure of 2018 Mobility-Capital funds on the project to no more than $3.4 million until authorized by ordinance, anticipating that SDOT would report to the Sustainability & Transportation Committee on “the 30% design baseline package, including a clear definition of the sidewalk and bicycle infrastructures improvements in the project scope … reflect[ing] continued community engagement and input in the project development”; and

WHERAS, after additional community engagement and input, SDOT reported to the Sustainability & Transportation Committee on the 30% design of the Delridge project on December 18, 2018, including planned pedestrian and bicycle improvements, in accordance with Ordinance 125635; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE CITY OF SEATTLE AS FOLLOWS:

Section 1.

Proviso

1.1

Seattle Department of Transportation

125635

“No more than $3.4 million of the funds appropriated in the Mobility-Capital Budget Control Level in the 2018 Budget may be expended for the Delridge Multimodal Corridor Project (TC367810) (adopted in the 2018-2023 Capital Improvement Program), until authorized by future ordinance. It is anticipated that such authorization will not be granted until the Seattle Department of Transportation reports to the Sustainability & Transportation Committee, or its successor committee, on the 30% design baseline package, including a clear definition of the sidewalk and bicycle infrastructure improvements in the project scope. City Council anticipates that the 30% design baseline package will reflect continued community engagement and input in the project development.”

 

Section 2. Before appropriating funds for construction of the Delridge Multimodal Corridor Project in the 2020 budget, it is the City Council’s intent to review the project to ensure that the final scope and design reflect continued community engagement and input in the project development. The City Council anticipates that SDOT will continue to evaluate issues identified by the community, including: a) utilizing 16th Ave SW for a more direct greenway connection; b) relocating the SW Findlay St. RapidRide station to SW Brandon St.; c) extending the northbound bus lane south of SW Alaska St.; d) allowing night and weekend parking by the Youngstown Cultural Center; e) adding traffic calming measures in the White Center business district; and f) improvements to the 26th Ave. SW greenway.

The City Council anticipates that SDOT and SPU will work together to ensure the design complies with the Stormwater Code and will complete a funding agreement with King County Metro in advance of seeking appropriations for construction of the project.

 

 

Section 3. This ordinance shall take effect and be in force 30 days after its approval by the Mayor, but if not approved and returned by the Mayor within ten days after presentation, it shall take effect as provided by Seattle Municipal Code Section 1.04.020.

Passed by the City Council the ________ day of _________________________, 2019, and signed by me in open session in authentication of its passage this _____ day of _________________________, 2019.
