Has There Been Previous Council Decision on This:
Options and Alternatives:
1.  Approve the Master Subrecipient Agreement
2.  Not approve the Master Subrecipient Agreement which will not provide project funding to city projects.
Throughout development of the Downtown Mile Safety and Connectivity Improvement Project components, MetroPlan has been instrumental in assisting the City of Flagstaff with planning strategy and transportation design involvement. As the regional transportation authority, they are able to provide funding through State and Federal programs that the City would not receive directly.

MetroPlan and the City wish to ensure a continuing and comprehensive transportation planning process for the Downtown Mile that involves cooperation/coordination through the sharing of information and utilization of the agreement funding. 

MetroPlan is charged with the responsibility of carrying out transportation planning and programming processes that lead to the development and operation of an integrated, intermodal transportation system that facilitates the efficient, economic movement of people and goods; and supports metropolitan community development and social goals.

In addition to providing funding for the design of the Downtown Mile this Master Subrecipient Agreement will apply to the overall relationship between MetroPlan and the City and will identify projects on an annual or more frequent basis for potential funding through an addenda to this Agreement.

The City will be responsible for Grant, Financial and Project Administration.
