TITLE: Title
Proposed Revisions to the DCHC-MPO Memorandum of Understanding
 
PURPOSE:  The Board of Aldermen approved a revised version of the Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC-MPO) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on February 25, 2014, and authorized the Mayor to sign it.  The MPO Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) approved a further-revised version on March 12, 2014.  The resolution in Attachment A approves this version and authorizes the Mayor to sign it.
body
DEPARTMENT: Planning
 
CONTACT INFORMATION: Jeff Brubaker - 918-7329
 
INFORMATION: The MOU version approved by the TAC on March 12, 2014, includes several non-substantive changes.  Since the wording of the Board's February 25 approval/authorization did not explicitly allow for flexibility for non-substantive changes other than for quorum language, staff believes it is prudent to adopt another resolution reapproving and reauthorizing, in order to eliminate any potential for inconsistency.  
 
FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT: Approving the revisions to the MOU as proposed would not have a fiscal impact at this time.  Staff will include the required share of the local match for MPO planning activities in departmental budget submittals for the upcoming fiscal year and anticipates doing the same in subsequent years.
 
RECOMMENDATION:r Staff recommend that the Board of Aldermen approve the draft resolution provided in Attachment A.
