Some of them with us.
Thinking about him trip.
Thank you, Doug.
And now we'll have a welcome to the Region.
We had a wonderful tour this morning of the area.
Thank you so much sun.
And I know we have the mayor here also.
So my job is to introduce the official.
Let me just.
Say publicly that you're my favorite Transportation Commission.
And second of all, I hope you don't, especially the folks who didn't tell that took RCD or I'm introducing to you my favorite mirror vault times.
This one is through because I think.
A young rising star thing to face challenges.
God, I don't want to be in his place, but he's facing them heads on.
My not introduce him and then I'll come back and talk about few things.
So less than debt one mirror, san Diego, Todd, Gloria.
And I do have to tell you that he didn't tell us that privately, so it wasn't just in front of you.
You are its favorite conformation.
Check, check information multiple times.
Thank you so much for this opportunity and for your kind words.
But the tour this morning, I know you had chest and he was San Diego staff, city staff, including my Director of Government Affairs, aging granddad.
I hope you enjoyed the visit down in the South Bay and thank you for the introduction.
For the record, my favorite Executive Director of a result Transportation organization, Hassan and I hopefully going to be able to convey to you some of the good things going on here in San Diego County.
Many of you are old friends and so many of you know about this stuff, but we appreciate the chance to.
Brag a little bit.
I do want to note two things.
One is my understanding.
This is your first meeting in person in quite some time.
So thanks for choosing San Diego.
I love having you all here.
Reminder our sales, our tourist taxes lower than LA and San Francisco.
So you should just spend, spend, spend its relative bargain when you're here in San Diego State, basically phrase so just spend money.
And then I also hate speaking in this room because that view is really incongruence with this microphone in terms of your attention.
But we want to give you a nice backdrop and show off some of the best of our city.
And I'm here on behalf of our Chair of sand mere, Catherine Blakespear in the city of Knidos, who'd like to bend here.
I serve as the vice chair together.
We try and control his honest best as we.
We lose most of the time, but it's usually a good thing because you know that Hassan is a force of nature.
And we're grateful to have him here in the region with all apologies to the LA area.
Before I go any further, I do want to pause for a moment, acknowledge a longtime friend of Christoffel phone who is here.
Chris and I have known each other for years.
In either of us would care to admit.
And I'm so pleased to see her on this Commission.
I hope that you all found I've already what I know which is that she's dynamic.
She's wonderful.
She knows San Diego of extremely well, and she extremely passionate about our South Bay communities as MI when you were down the Southern part of the city earlier today, that is still the City of San Diego.
I know we're not contiguous.
They are also part of the second largest city in California.
They are very important to the future as you saw, some of the projects we're advancing.
And they have choruses focus on that on this commission is extremely valuable to our future plans as a region.
I also wanna acknowledge and give honor and thanks to Christine, he hoped for her service on this commission.
Some of you may know.
Christine is Chris as we all know, is san Diego is Harvey Milk.
And it's quite literally to say that I would not be saying at this podium it was not for Christine keyhole paying bills long ago.
Her continued service on this commission is just a testament to her commitment to public service.
And so I'm glad that you all got the benefit of knowing Chris and hope to see her.
Very soon.
So as you've heard from Pisano, from staff this morning, we have some game game changing projects in the works dot here, it's what I think a song and I like to refer to as big city energy, right?
We're the second largest city in California, eighth largest in the country.
And we want folks to know that.
And we have to size up or Infrastructure to match.
That size.
San DAG is completely transforming the way that san Diego ans get around this great region.
Are we aiming to make it easier and more convenient for everyone to connect to all the special places that are here in San Diego.
And as you know, we are fortunate to have many, many special places from building the new port of entry that you saw this.
Morning that will make our border crossings extremely efficient.
Unique feature of our community, right?
We're proud by national community, the ability to get folks across that border efficiently is important from an economic perspective.
It's extremely important from a climate and environmental perspective.
In San DAG is working to address that, moving the low san Rail line off the Finally connecting our regions transit system to the San Diego International Airport.
Apologies, Those of you may have flown in today and the fact that you do have a wonderful light rail system, it's not connected to the airport.
We're going to change to that.
And these rolled up or projects that will benefit everyone in every corner of this County.
That's important to recognize.
We can't do this work alone.
You all know that extremely well from others lives in other jobs that you have.
And it takes all of us and I mean, every single person in this room today, collaboration with the CTC is absolutely crucial to our Region success as we try and size up these massive projects that will improve quality of life.
In this enormous region.
We can't do without CTC.
And so I'm here to express my sincere appreciation, thanks, and pledge my support for the work that you all will do.
But for my time in the legislature as a member of the State Assembly, I know this organization is extremely important across the state to the extent that my office as mayor of San Diego, as vice chair of San Diego.
It can be of support any of you.
My door is always open.
You know, those kinds of partnerships that I think can get this all done.
In addition to those partnerships, we aim to answer now, how are we need the rest of these projects that I just mentioned to you done, how are we going to bring people together in the region to actually accomplish them?
It's great to have regional transportation plan.
It's far better when you're breaking ground in my personal favorite is when you cut the ribbon on it, I will tell you that Sandy AG is laser-focused on delivering these projects, right?
We passed a transformative RTP.
Now it's time to start building projects.
And san Diego is bringing together partners all across our region to make the decisions that will actually make these things possible for us.
But importantly for Future Generations.
And I think that's probably where I want to conclude is I recognize a lot of this work that we're doing now, none of us will be the beneficiaries of these projects take decades to do.
I wish it were less, but it's the fact that matter as many of them take a long time.
That's okay.
I'm perfectly content with making sure that we get this boulder rolling downhill.
So vanilla can stop it.
So at the end result, someday, when I leave the home, myself onto a fabulous light rail system that gets to every corner of this region that I'll have full access on my phone to every sort of motor transportation possible that I need to get about my day.
And then I'll do it with air that is clean and an environment that is pristine.
That's the work that we're doing.
We're not thinking about.
Next year, we're thinking about two generations from now.
So I'll conclude.
You go.
Shall we say thank you when someone does something nice for you?
And so I would be remiss if I did not.
Thank you all for the $23 million TCEP grant funds to help with the construction of the media Road, 010 mesa is one of most dynamic parts of this city.
There are attainable.
Housing down there.
There's good jobs that are down there.
It's amazing how the economic investments, there's the national international border.
Your investment in that project will make that dynamic area even more dynamic.
And so as the mayor of the city, I just can't thank you enough for that investment.
I look forward to having you join me.
We break ground on that project later this year.
So that's plenty.
Hi science thunder, I'm happy to play opening act to the global phenomenon that is the Hasan Ikhrata show.
But I would say I'm so grateful to be able to partner with him to get these big projects done and keep an eye on our space.
We intend to do transformational things during my time as mayor has my image under my leadership at San Diego with our chair Catherine Blakespear.
And I saw on a confident we can get it done.
So let me turn it back to the sun.
Thank you.
Thank you, Madam.
Without a known and we'll come again to san geography, go to the next slide.
As we told you this morning, we're about.
Connecting people and keep going to the next slide.
Wait about honestly, using data, big data to get to a place where our decisions are data-driven.
And I hope we demonstrate it to you this morning that it is an end of the day.
It's about connecting people.
We told you the pillars of our thinking.
And with the help of America, Gloria and our chair will be able to say that we mean.
Social, the equity and social justice when we say it, we didn't just make statement.
Last January.
I will to board adopted the liquid statement this month.
We're gonna start a free transit pass used in San Diego because of it.
So when we're practicing what we preach, looked at the next slide, so three years ago we started to develop a vision for until the next slide that we can four San Diego in case you wondering what is this?
This is the City of San Diego.
We stole this from National Geographic.
You had an article on future.
I can't do my stuff.
I got actually the national Jacob I said San Diego like this.
And they start working connecting with all these grid lines to that white star, which we didn't know exactly what it's gonna be.
That's the central morbidity that we're gonna build four.
And finally, finally, couldn't.
Nick thing or Airport Rail to Airport.
And this would one of the few International Airport in the world that doesn't have that connection.
And building a central mobility half-life.
We spoke today about san CD-ROM.
This is a larger scale.
We're all Rail comes.
What we could build housing, retail, lets people.
Become entertain.
This is going to give even better and more visible character for this great Region.
Next slide, please.
We shared with you.
Keep going next, we shared with you the next one.
All Time message you saw today.
This is thanks to Mary Gloria.
Finally, we'll getting some cooperation from Customs, Border Protection to fund this.
Our plan is to open the September 2024.
It's an ambitious plan, but we'll $600 million already invested.
I think we have we can go back and thank you for all the funding you made available and for the request that sits in front of you for more funding and I hope Meadow, Gloria and I will have you back when we open this facility.
Next slide, please.
You also heard about an examples throughout the state.
For the North course calendar.
This is what we mean by complete characters.
One of the five big moves.
This is where you improve access to Highways, you build higher potency, told them which we just opened a segment we'd want to open again and we're going to convert it to occupancy load.
But in addition to that, you Double Track the Rail.
In addition to that, you built Active Transportation.
We call it completely Teradata and you deploy technology as much as possible.
Next, the next priority is the loss and character.
I'm sorry, we didn't have time to take you there to show you how scary it is and how close the trends.
In the last three years we had to slow.
Let's stands down a couple of times because of that.
We don't want these trends to be swimming in the ocean.
Thank you for the TCEP money we get a $100 million to stabilize the bluff.
But the plan is to move the tracks of the once and for all.
And that becomes one priority for Sunday again, the next one.
Next slide, please, is building a center mobility to help for Sunday.
And I am grateful again for the mare for at least saying yeah, it is difficult.
It's gonna take a lot of money, a lot spine.
But that's what the big cities do.
They do big stuff.
And infrastructure is big stuff.
Go to the next couple of slides quickly and then I want to show you a video.
Just a couple of minutes video.
That summarizes what the vision for this region is.
So could you go to the video.
Take a moment.
For ensuring that you have multimodal transportation ecosystem that includes everything.
So we were very impressed.
Thank you so much.
Keep up the good work.
Hassan and Mayor Gloria, thank you for your comments and welcoming us to your beautiful city and region.
Mayor Gloria, Do you have time for a quick question.
I'm cargo Dina.
Of course I do.
You're very gracious.
Your passion and success on issues like homelessness, affordable housing, and housing in general is known throughout our state.
How are you and San Diego linking those issues?
With your traffic and transportation improvements?
And thank you for the question.
I would add in our credit policies as well.
The city has the Landmark Climate Action Plan.
It will not be achievable without coordination with sand.
So part of why I wanted to be vice chair of the board when I came back to local government, it's important to connect these pieces together from what we're doing.
And you can look at the projects that san DAG is advancing.
Some of the visual you saw was some of our cities first dedicated protected bike ways that are in the areas that have an updated community plan with significant ups zoning that is near existing transit.
You see how these things sort of come together.
We're moving forward, ambitious housing, productive.
Section measures.
We have already implemented setup bill nine will be implementing Senate Bill ten later this year.
And again, the question from a lot of constituents who are crushed by the housing crisis, but still skeptical the answers, whereas the infrastructure, and that's where Sandec comes in, the updated RTP matches extremely well.
With that request for infrastructure and where we're actually dwelling.
And the last thing I'll say is that under the chair Blakespear is leadership and with Hassan's help, we've stood up a select committee, if you will, and housing options, where we're looking to take some of what you all pioneer at the bay in the bay area of really trying to draw down some additional funds that allow us to incent.
And advice, not just the big city of San Diego, November their 18 cities and our County, not one of us can solve the housing crisis in our community by ourselves.
We all have to be born in the same direction through sand bags, leadership and housing.
This is relatively new area for sand, dad and you'd be on the Rina process, you know, establishing best practices and really incentivizing, put in some money on the table to get.
Get these jurisdictions to participate.
I think it all just comes together as you ask Karl, but RTP, that's really visionary, that really provides the infrastructure question local jurisdiction, stepping up with the community plans, the programmatic EIR, the implementation of Senate bills, all coming together.
And of course, the Venn diagram of transportation, housing, that sweet spot in the middle is.
Finally, and that's how we end up being ambitious climate action walls.
And I was, I was heartened to hear you talk about clean air in your initial comments, as well as the father of 12-year-old daughter with asthma.
It is so critical that we think of the global issues around greenhouse gas emissions, but never forget the localized issues around air quality.
So thank you.
Thank you.
Any other questions, commissioners?
I guess she said it all.
They take you so much.
And I'm sure we'll take items 34 together.
Three of you approval of the minutes from the January 26-27, 2022 meeting to have four or the commissioners Meetings for Compensation.
I move approval.
Second, Martina's.
All those in favor.
My call since we have someone on Hoping if you could give me who you heard, made the motion.
I think Commissioner Norton, I was gonna say Chair in Norton.
Let me okay.
I mean, Commissioner Martinez, second in favor.
I oppose.
Motion carries.
Thank you.
We'll move on to Commission Executive Director Report.
Thank you.
You're welcome.
Good afternoon, everyone.
Great to be back in person today.
And I'm happy to be in San Diego.
You go place.
I grew up in love visiting still.
One of the benefits of having our meetings in person.
And throughout the State is that we add the Commission get a c transportation needs and challenges in each community that we visit.
Unfortunately, we haven't had the opportunity to do this for.
The better part of two years.
So we're happy to be able to do this again at the tour that Sandec hosted, it was already mentioned a couple of times and found it very interesting.
I appreciate it.
Update on the efforts to put a suicide barrier on the corner Bridge.
It's been about half a dozen.
Years since we had at a Commission meeting.
Here are some survivors and others who were impacted by suicides come and testify and we look forward to finding how to seeing the progress of that and finding out how we can implement that important project.
With the recent changes.
You just in the course, the pandemic and expiration of the executive order that allowed for an all virtual meeting format expect that we'll be meeting in person for all of our upcoming upcoming CT meet c meetings, town halls, inner agency meetings, everything we're doing in the near future.
Even though we met just seven weeks.
Let's ago for last Commission meeting, we have new leaders at several of the states transportation agencies, as well as one new Commissioner, all of whom I'd like to acknowledge.
First chair Eager.
Congratulations on your election.
I know you'll do an outstanding job as chair.
You'd be great deal of expertise to the Commission with your leadership on economic development in the Central Valley.
And I noticed.
The valuable thing leading the Commission in the coming year.
Commission regard Dina, I'm pleased to be working with you again as vice chair and to be having the benefit of all your experience as one of the longest serving commissioners, as well as your leaders.
Ship in the business and the public sector.
I'd also like to acknowledge our newest member of Commissioner Bradshaw, who's unable to be here today because of a longstanding prior commitment.
I look forward to welcoming in person at our April town hall meeting.
Before I move on to congratulate the new leadership at our partner agencies, I want to acknowledge and thank commissioners Norton and Alvarado for their services.
Chair and vice-chair over the last two years.
Commissioner Alvarado retired.
I doubt he's spending his retirement.
Permanent listening to Commission meetings, but I just want to put it Thank you out there.
I really appreciate the support and leadership.
Not just a first time as vice chair, but the many years he served on the Commission, Commissioner Norton, I want to thank you as well.
You let us on a steady path during difficult times for the state.
Helped advance important State priorities for climate and equity in our work.
I have a resolution to present to you.
The resolution says.
Not that file.
Whereas commissioner Hillary nerve Norton served as the chair of the california transportation commission from August 12th, 2020 through February 282022.
And whereas Commissioner Norton provided steadfast leadership to the Commission during the COVID-19.
Teen pandemics blow, the Commission conducted its business remotely and we're as Commissioner Norton was an ardent champion for critical transportation projects that address California's climate goals and fix the first needs, strengthen the state's good movement, movement Network, and enhance mobility options for all modes of transportation, including.
The Active Transportation and transit, and create new jobs and economic growth.
And whereas Commissioner Norton maintain the commission's commitment to being a sound steward of taxpayer dollars by ensuring transparency and accountability over state and local transportation projects and progress towards meeting the transportation goals established by Senate Bill one.
Whereas Commissioner Norton was unwavering in her commitment to increase the conditions emphasis on equitable outcomes in California is transportation system and oversaw the issuance of the Commission's first ever racial equity statement to creation of an equity Advisory Roundtable.
And the development of an equity.
Equity Advisory Listening Sessions.
And equity Advisory Committee.
And whereas Commissioner Norton partner with the leadership at the California Department of Transportation and the California State Transportation Agency to advocate successfully for federal legislation to increase funding for transportation and allow California to better meet its.
Transportation needs.
Now therefore, be it resolved that the California Transportation Commission extends to Commissioner Hillary Norton its recommendation.
It's commendation and gratitude.
First service to the people of the State of California, and for setting an ambitious vision for the california transportation commission during her tenure.
I would like to move approval of the resolution.
Second, Commissioner Davis, All those in favor or opposed, Right.
Thank you so much.
Thank you so much.
Once again.
Thank you.
Well, that does not end my report.
I have much more to say.
Listening at home.
I believe our new Transportation Secretary is joining us virtually today.
Secretary Omishakin.
How Omishakin, I want to offer my congratulations and say how pleased I was to hear of your appointment.
I appreciate our strong partnership we had while you were at caltrans.
Know that your leadership Acasta will foster greater collaboration between our agencies.
And it was nice to have the opportunity to spend a lot of time with you at the AASHTO conference in DC, a couple of weeks.
Go I hope that we can continue to coordinate our future engagement at the federal level.
I want to congratulate Steven Keck as acting caltrans director.
Not all of you know this, but I hired Steven when he started at caltrans almost 22 years ago.
He was he was an entry-level analyst and he told me his goal was just one promotion and to retire early.
And I think that was probably about eight promotions.
So he did not succeed in that.
I wish you success in achieving many of your other goals were fortunate.
Tab you working with us since we have such a strong working relationship.
And you're really.
Ed rocket institutional knowledge at caltrans.
Commissioners will have a staff report on the agenda later today under tap 15 with the update on the State Budget.
I want to let you know that we're having conversations at the staff level regarding several several issues for the main regions were very supportive of the governor's.
Post influx of general fund revenue for transportation.
But we believe there are some opportunities to improve the proposals by leveraging the Commission's expertise, experience, and processes.
And we continue to seek the full $2 billion augmentation for the active Transportation Program.
Tell clear the project backlog and to fund ambitious new pilot.
Programs, as well as 2.52.5 billion augmentation per Transit and Rail projects in the State Transportation Improvement Program to address the need for trans and improvements across the state.
I will keep you updated as our conversations continue.
For planning to hold a short commission Meeting the morning of April 13, town hall to request any needed action or direction on the budget.
Commissioners, we have two new program adoptions on our agenda, as well as the adoption Guidelines to kick off a call for projects.
First, we have the 2022 State Transportation Improvement Program for which Staff Recommendations we're reliefs released 20 days ago.
The linked list projects recommended is in your book item.
They constitute a suite of multimodal investments across California that are gonna help us meet our climate goals, make travel safer, improved road conditions, and facilitate goods movement.
We did identify a few issues with some projects proposed in the inner regional programs.
My caltrans, for instance, to propose Active Transportation projects, were safety projects that did not have a clear in a regional benefit.
And so we believe are better suited for funding in the State Highway Operation protection Program.
We're setting aside the associated funds so that we can work with caltrans to identify it, Bike and pedestrian projects.
Projects that relate to the inner regional surface transportation of people or goods or that are capital Outlay projects of Statewide benefited interests, such as projects that would connect enter to Intercity Rail or larger bicycle and pedestrian networks.
Such larger transformative projects are a priority for the State and something that the legislature has been asking us to find more of.
It's imperative that we use are scarce dollars for interregional movement of projects that meet the subjective.
I'm confident that we'll be able to work with caltrans to identify projects.
Do you use this reserve in your future?
We also had a few rail projects that did not either meet the statutory requirements or requirements in our STIP Guidelines.
We're also setting aside these funds so that these issues can be addressed and we can program these projects hopefully in the future.
We are supportive of caltrans efforts to propose more and multi-modal solutions.
And the ITIL.
Many of those.
But many of those Rail, Bike, and Pedestrian nominations did not meet longstanding statutory and guidelines requirements following adoption of the STIP or reach out to the units and caltrans responsible for developing Rail and active Transportation projects to offer training and these requirements to try to ensure that.
Future submittals are eligible consistent with the guidance.
We also have the 2022 State Highway Operation protection Program proposed for adoption on the agenda.
The projects in the SHOPP will help us stay on course to meet the SP1 targets for road and bridge conditions.
Also adding Complete Streets features.
We will however, be recommending deferring our to our main meeting adoption of the SHOPP Guidelines, which are on our agenda, so that we have adequate time to take into consideration the comments submitted by our stakeholders that we just recently received.
The comments address issues such as the electronic format of the SHOPP.
We think several of the suggestions are reasonable, but we need some additional time to work through the specific, specific language.
So we expect that coming back in May.
And today, we have our proposed Active Transportation Program Guidelines on our agenda, which means we will be issuing the call for projects for the sixth cycle of that program.
Asked for upcoming events.
I have a really long list of things to read to you is basically schedule through April 1st on March 24th, from five to 07:00 PM, will hold a virtual listening session and partnership with Caltrans and Cal stuff.
This is the first six initial sessions, each.
Which will focus on a different, different geographic area.
The area of focus for the first session is Kern County, will hold the second session on March 34, Lake County, and the remaining four sessions will be scheduled in April, early May.
On April 7th, we'll have our next joint meeting with the Air Resources Board and the Department of Housing and Community Development to further collaboration on intersectional policies across our agencies.
This meeting will be in Rockland, which is just outside Sacramento.
On April 13th and 14th.
We'll have a town hall ancillary.
This is the first town hall that will be holding since the start of the pandemic.
I'm very excited to finally be able to continue holding these advanced.
They provide an important opportunity for us to visit more rural and remote communities and for them to showcase.
To the Commission their needs and priorities.
And as I mentioned earlier, we're planning short commission Meeting the morning of the 13th to request any needed action or direction on a budget.
On April 22nd, we'll have the next row charts technical advisory committee.
We've not yet finalized the location, but are looking at potentially holding it in Sacramento at the last technical advisory committee was held in February and focused on the implement implementation of Senate Bill 339.
On April 29th, we'll have our equity Advisory Roundtable meeting.
That Roundtable where here updates on our efforts to enhance equity
