NIRPC Executive Board Meeting 6100 Southport Road, Portage, IN June 15, 2017

Minutes


Call to Order

Vice Chairman Geof Benson called the meeting to order at 9:10 a.m. with the Pledge of Allegiance and self-introductions. Geof Benson noted there was not as yet a quorum.


Executive Board members present included Geof Benson, Karen Freeman-Wilson, Justin Kiel, Blair Milo, Greg Stinson and James Ton.


Other Commissioners present included Kevin Breitzke, Will Farrellbegg, Tom Schmitt, Mary Tanis and George Topoll.


Guests present included Lyndsay Quist, Justin Mount, Matt Deitchley, David Wright, Bill McCall, Jim Nowacki, Jill Murr, K-Todd Behling, Zully Alvarado, Jessie Rausch, Randy Strasser, Kay Nelson, Tim Zorn and Andrew Steele. Joyce Newland participated via conference phone.


Staff present included Ty Warner, Kathy Luther, Angie Hayes, Allen Hammond, Mitch Barloga, Scott Weber, Gary Evers, Eman Ibrahim, Meredith Stilwell, James Winters, Gabrielle Biciunas and Mary Thorne.


Report of the Vice Chairman

Geof Benson reported on the National Association of Regional Council’s conference last week. Ty Warner reported that Geof was elected President-Elect, which will mean this is the second time NIRPC will have a commissioner serve as NARC President (Dave Shafer previously served on this capacity). Blair Milo is also on the NARC Board of Directors. Ty Warner was re-elected to the Executive Directors Council, where James Turnwald of MACOG (South Bend) is an at-large EDC member and Sally Fahey from the Tippecanoe County area MPO was just elected as another EDC at-large member. Overall, Indiana is extremely well-represented at the national level at NARC.


Ty Warner also relayed some highlights from the NARC Annual Meeting discussions, including the Federal Reserve presenting on economic dynamism and community reinvestment. There was also significant discussion on the future of autonomous vehicles, and Ty Warner noted this conversation has started moving beyond the “gee whiz” futuristic aspect of this technology to a more serious examination of its projected impacts on the future of transit, housing, land use, etc.


Report of the Executive Director

Ty Warner introduced Rachel Veronesi, NIRPC’s new part-time environmental educator. Kathy Luther has been promoted to Chief of Staff of NIRPC, and Meredith Stilwell has been named Office Manager (in addition to her duties as Website Coordinator). With the shift in overall office administration duties to Meredith, Angie Hayes’ title has been changed to Chief Financial Officer. James Winters has been named Transit Planner, replacing Belinda Petroskey who previously served in this role.


Warner invited the Commission to the Regional Partnership Open House that afternoon to celebrate the remodeling and completed occupancy of the building that houses NIRPC, the Northwest Indiana Forum, Purdue University Northwest, and the South Shore Leadership Center. South Shore Clean Cities will also be participating in celebrating the electric vehicle charging station and will have electric vehicles on-hand.

The triennial review has been completed with one minor correction for a couple of transit operators but overall was a successful review. The quadrennial certification review with USDOT will take place in July and the MPO Conference in the fall. A vehicle disposition sale is taking place on June 21.


Ty Warner also relayed the presentation from the Figg Group on the Cline Avenue Bridge project given at the Lakeshore Chamber luncheon. The Group expects the bridge to be completed by 2019.


Minutes

Geof Benson noted that there was now a quorum of the Executive Board. On a motion by Jim Ton and a second by Greg Stinson, the minutes of the May 18 Executive Board meeting were approved.


Environmental Management Policy Committee

Geof Benson said the committee heard a presentation by IDEM on the Grand Calumet River/Indiana Harbor Ship Canal Remedial Action Plan. The next meeting will be on August 3 at 9 a.m. at NIRPC.


Technical Planning Committee

Kevin Breitzke reported that the Technical Planning Committee met on Tuesday. Staff presented on the Planned Growth Goal of the 2040 Comprehensive Plan. The Committee also heard a presentation from Ratio Architects and Butler, Fairman & Seufert on the draft I-65 and US 30 Safety Plan. The public comment period on the draft plan runs until the end of June.


There is one action for consideration. Resolution 17-15, Amendment #1 to the FY 2018 Unified Planning Work Program was explained by Eman Ibrahim. On a motion by Greg Stinson and a second by Jim Ton, the Executive Board voted to adopt Resolution 17-15, Amendment #1 to the FY 2018 Unified Planning Work Program.


The next meeting of the Technical Planning Committee is scheduled for July 11 at 9 a.m. at NIRPC.


Legislative Committee

Blair Milo reported that she read the President’s budget amid concerns regarding the substantial programs being eliminated or reduced in the President’s budget submission. It is anticipated that there will still be a significant amount of change to the submission by the legislature. The federal government is about $20 trillion in debt, double what it was eight years ago. None of the mandatory discretionary spending is being impacted by the changes proposed in the President’s budget. Without addressing mandatory spending, by 2030 it will occupy about 96% of the federal budget, which will end in even greater problems than we are seeing now. The Legislative Committee will soon meet to review some bi-partisan proposals to carry forward our message via resolution to our delegation of possible solutions. The Committee would welcome suggestions by the Commission. Jim Ton asked for a summary of talking points for the Commission to focus on as a result of the Committee’s deliberations.


Indiana Department of Transportation

Reporting for Rick Powers, Lyndsay Quist said the I-65 widening project has begun with shifting traffic patterns. The Community Crossings grant applications will be accepted until 5 p.m. EST on July 14.


Other Business

Kevin Breitzke said the comment period for the US 30 safety study is very important as the improvements will benefit the entire region.


Public Comment

Jim Nowacki, Gary, asked that everyone pay attention to past flooding and sidewalk issues as work begins on SR 53 from downtown Gary south.

Comments Received via Email

Yes there should be access for pedestrians to walk or bicycle around this area and connect to the already made region trails. Multi-use sidewalks and crosswalks. Connecting hotel visitors to mall and dining, also connections to Mississippi Street south of 30, new developing apartments and subdivision homes.


Also 73rd wider road with bike lanes west and east, to 51st north into Hobart. Connecting Redar Park, Independence Park, Hidden Lake, and Deep River.


73rd switches to Joliet Road into Schereville to the west, to Broad Street north to connect to Griffith. And continue on Joliet Road west, trail go south to Lincolnwood Rd. south to 77th widen the road, going west to Hart St. in Dyer. Hart north to Columbia and Veterans

Park. Or keep going west over the border to Sauk Trail Rd. and west to Frankfort and 20 miles multi-use trails.

We agree that there should be larger network connections to increase safe access for cyclists and pedestrians, however most of the connections listed are outside of the study area. There are other proposals in the works to address of some your connections. Thank you for your participation in this process.

Hawthorne Boulevard in the South Bay region of Southern California is similar to Rt. 30; both have a lot of traffic with many shopping areas along both sides of the road for quite a long stretch. I lived in that area during the late 1970s, and driving down Hawthorne was as painful as driving Rt. 30 today.


Last year I had the opportunity to drive Hawthorne Blvd again, and I was blown away by how fast I could drive the six-mile stretch I needed to travel. And this was with the increased population and commerce that developed over the past 40 years!


Please look into whatever Caltrans did because they got it right. Start with this brief article: http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist07/Publications/Inside7/story.php?id=360


Thank you for your consideration.

We have reviewed the suggested article and agree that signal timing is less than ideal. We have suggested INDOT review signal timing, but the proposed system used by Caltrans is too cost prohibitive for this particular project. Thank you for your participation in this process.

My concern is the intersection of US 30 & Taney Place (by McDonald's). I have lived on Taney Place for 40 years. Trying to turn left onto Rt 30 is ridiculous. The light is green for about 20 seconds. Only 4 cars can safely turn onto 30. Every day, every light, at least 2-3 cars make the turn on yellow/red. McDonald's is extremely busy and now with summer, it will be even busier.


Could you please have someone look into this problem? Would really help if the light on Taney was extended for 10-20 seconds longer.

This particular intersection is outside of the study area.

However, these concerns will be forwarded to the Indiana Department of Transportation and the Town of Merrillville. Thank you for your participation in this process.

No

No

So glad to see the recommend improvements for pedestrians on Rt.

30. So many times I see people walking under I-65 and walking on that piece of median next to the on-ramp from 30 onto 65. I literally fear for their lives. You are absolutely correct in saying that people live in the areas, they go to schools, churches and are unable to do it in other than a motorized mode of transportation. It’s been a long time coming and can’t wait!

Thank you for your participation in this process.

No

No

I am so pleased that a plan has been made to address the chaotic nature of this US 30 corridor. This is desperately needed and can be used as an example to other areas of the country with similar issues: How does one plan cities that have developed de facto with the automobile as the primary mode of transportation?

This study aims to address the issues that have arisen from car-centric planning and propose solutions for making the corridor better for all users, both motorized and non-motorized. Thank you for your participation in this process.

No

No


Comments Received via Telephone

The street closest there is Mississippi that runs north and south and crosses US 30. You need to put up a camera up there and start ticketing these people who run the red lights like crazy. Thank you.

The goal of this study is to create safer connections for cyclists and pedestrians through the study area. Red light cameras have not been shown to be as effective as other safety proposals.

Cameras would be a lower priority recommendation. Thank you for your participation in this process.

No

No

Instead of doing trailheads and rain gardens and stuff, Route 30 I know for sure going west from 65 all the way as far as you can go in Schererville needs to be repaved, and I think that is the first thing that needs to be done before any beautification because Route 30 is horrible. It’s probably as bad going east, but I know going west it’s very very terrible.

Repaving of US-30 is part of the recommendations. Thank you for your participation in this process.
