Adoption of Resolution R-14-121 for approval and submittal of the MCAT Transit Development Plan (TDP) Annual Progress Report to the Florida Department of Transportation District One.
The Board of County Commissioners has the necessary authority.
The State of Florida Public Transit Block Grant Program was enacted by the Florida Legislature to provide a stable source of annual state funding for public transit. The Block Grant Program requires public transit service providers to develop, adopt, and annually update a Ten-Year Transit Development Plan (TDP). Under legislation that became effective February 20, 2007, the TDP must undergo a Major Update every five (5) years. In the interim years, an annual progress report is to be submitted to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) on the Ten-Year Implementation Program of the TDP. According to Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.) Rule 14-73.001, annual progress reports shall include:
The Manatee County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approved the Ten-Year TDP Major Update in September 2013. FDOT reviewed the Major Update and found it to be in compliance with F.A.C. Rule 14-73. MCAT staff has prepared an annual progress report for the 2013 Transit Development Plan Major Update which is consistent with the requirements outlined in FAS 14-73.001. Transit staff is requesting that the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approve the 2014 TDP Progress Report and authorize submittal to FDOT.
