   Page 1 Overview and Initial Issues IdentificationSDOT / Transportation Operating Fund Staff: Dan Eder, Mike Fong, Ketil Freeman, Norm SchwabDate Prepared: 10/22/12 Table 1: Budget Overview: ExpendituresIntroduction: Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT)’s revenues in the 2013 Proposed Budget will increase by11% or approximately $31 million compared to the 2012 Adopted Budget. SDOT’s overall revenuesand spending grow so significantly because the 2013 Proposed Budget includes $43M in new revenuessubject to voter-approval on the November 2012 ballot of the proposed Seawall bond levy. Aside fromSeawall bond levy revenues, SDOT’s largest revenue source growth was from the City’s CumulativeReserve Subfund, made possible due to growth in Real Estate Excise Tax (REET) revenues.   BUDGET CONTROL LEVELS2012 ADOPTED2013PROPOSED %CHANGE '12-'13 2014PROPOSED %CHANGE '13-'14 Expenditures by BCL Bridges & Structures $7,721,000 $7,479,000 -3% $7,719,000 3%Department Management $10,569,000 $1,211,000 -89% $1,233,000 2%Engineering Services $1,625,000 $2,234,000 37% $2,155,000 -4%General Expense $30,286,000 $30,992,000 2% $34,446,000 11%Major Maintenance/Replacement $41,530,000 $48,289,000 16% $48,914,000 1%Major Projects $99,352,000 $129,602,000 30% $195,969,000 51%Mobility-Capital $46,482,000 $20,902,000 -55% $16,412,000 -21%Mobility-Operations $35,140,000 $35,668,000 2% $36,457,000 2%ROW Management $11,524,000 $13,733,000 19% $13,624,000 -1%Street Maintenance $22,019,000 $23,167,000 5% $23,611,000 2%Urban Forestry $4,403,000 $4,611,000 5% $4,757,000 3% Total SDOT Expenditures $310,651,000 $317,888,000 2% $385,297,000 21% Total FTEs 721 725.5 0% 725.5 0% Revenues SDOT General Fund & Gas Tax $50,601,000 $51,633,000 2% $52,037,000 1%Cumulative Reserve Subfund $6,334,000 $11,226,000 77% $7,889,000 -30%BTG Levy $40,694,000 $41,487,000 2% $42,221,000 2%Commercial Parking Tax $30,760,000 $31,291,000 2% $32,699,000 4%Vehicle License Fee $6,800,000 $6,868,000 1% $6,937,000 1%Rubble Yard Proceeds from Finance $0 $4,050,000 N/A $3,155,000 -22%Seawall and Central Waterfront Levy $0 $43,700,000 N/A $78,000,000 78%Grants, Bonds, Reimbursable & Other $160,312,000 $136,371,000 -15% $155,347,000 14%Use of (Contribution to) Fund Balance $15,150,000 -$8,738,000 N/A $7,012,000 N/A Total SDOT Revenues $310,651,000 $317,888,000 2% $385,297,000 21%  All dollar numbers rounded to the nearest $1,000   Page 2 Table of Contents 1.   Transit Master Plan Implementation (Freeman & Eder) ......................................................................2 2.   Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements (Schwab) ...................................................................................5 3.   On-Street Parking (Eder) ......................................................................................................................7 4.   Paving (Fong) ........................................................................................................................................9 5.   Vehicle License Fee / Seattle Transportation Benefits District (Eder & Fong) ..................................... 11 6.   Central Waterfront Interfund Loan Ordinance (C.B. 117616) (Schwab) ............................................. 11 7.   Other Potential Issues ..........................................................................................................................12 1.   Transit Master Plan Implementation (Freeman & Eder) The adopted Transit Master Plan (TMP) prioritizes both High-Capacity Transit (HCT) projects and non-HCT priority bus corridor projects. HCT projects require a longer planning horizon as well as capitalfunding requirements too large for the City to implement without significant funding partnerships withother entities.The Proposed Budget includes funding to continue work on two existing non-HCT streetcar projects:First Hill Streetcar and Broadway Streetcar Extension. Capital appropriations (carry-forward from2012) will fund continuing work on two existing HCT projects: Ballard-to-Downtown and the CityCenter Connector. Finally, the Proposed Budget includes funding to continue incrementalimplementation of Priority Bus Corridor improvements identified in the TMP. The cumulative fundinggap is approximately $616M for these three categories of projects with work already underway.The 2013 Proposed Budget includes $2.5M to begin work in 2013 on additional HCT projects (EastlakeHCT and Ship Canal Crossing). The Proposed Budget also includes $350,000 in 2013 and $500,000 in2014 for initial work on a new Madison Bus Rapid Transit project (proposal is to fund this through thenon-HCT Transit Priority Corridor CIP project). The cumulative funding gap is approximately $284Mfor these projects that are proposed to start in 2013.Executive staff indicates that there is currently not a 20-year funding plan for securing the $900M totalgap including transit projects already underway ($616M gap) and transit projects proposed to start in2013 ($284M gap). Executive staff indicates that funding in the Proposed Budget includes work –particularly for the HCT projects underway and proposed to start in 2013 - that must be completed inorder to formulate detailed funding plans.Attachment A provides a map highlighting the TMP’s HCT corridors and also the TMP’s non-HCTPriority Bus Corridors.Chart 1 summarizes preliminary cost estimates and funding status for those TMP projects that are either(a) already underway or (b) would start if funding is approved in the 2013 Proposed Budget.   Page 3 A more detailed list of the projects within each category, capital cost estimates, and funding status isincluded as Attachment B.SDOT’s base budget for Transit Corridor Improvements included $3.2M in 2013 and $3.1M in 2014(CIP project TC366860 makes physical improvements to bus corridors referred to as ”Priority BusCorridors” in the Transit Master Plan). The 2013 Proposed Budget adds $500,000 for design andplanning work related to the Ballard to Downtown HCT Project (specifically the Ship Canal Crossing).The 2013 Proposed Budget includes expenditures of $1.2M for the City Center Connector project;appropriation authority for those expenditures was previously authorized by Council.The Mayor has proposed adding approximately $4.4M in 2013 and an additional $1.1M in 2014 for“TMP implementation” in new appropriations. The Mayor has also proposed creating a new reserve in2014 with $2.5M of seed money that could be used to pay a portion of anticipated costs for additionaldesign and construction of one or more HCT or streetcar projects. Table 2 below provides additionaldetails.   Page 4 Table 2: Proposed TMP Implementation Budget AddsCIP Project / Staffing2013Proposed2014Proposed Comments Eastlake HCT $2.0 - Design, planning, cost estimatesShip Canal Crossing $0.5 - Design work, planning, cost estimatesThird Ave. Infrastructure $1.0 - Bus stop/sidewalk outside Macy’s; addcountdown signalsTransit CorridorImprovements$0.4 $0.5 Design work, planning, cost estimates forMadison Corridor BRTStaffing Adds $0.6 $0.6 Three new FTEs for TMPImplementation projects Total SDOT Adds $4.4 $1.1 New TMPImplementation Reserve- $2.5 In Cumulative Reserve Subfund Grand Total $4.4 $3.6 In $millions Options: A.   No action - approve all added funding as proposed.B.   Council could shift funding away from one or more Proposed 2013 adds in Table 2 and do one of the following: ã   Council could fill a portion of the remaining $23M funding gap on the Broadway StreetcarExtension. Council could make a future decision to reprogram those funds for otherpurposes if it decides on a different approach for prioritizing implementation of TMPprojects or a strategy for addressing the significant funding gaps in Priority Bus Corridors,existing non-HCT streetcar projects, existing HCT projects, and proposed new HCT projects.   ã   Increase funding in the Transit Corridor Improvements CIP project to complete one or moreof the 12 Priority Bus Corridors identified in the City’s recently adopted Transit Master Plan. ã   Increase funding for other SDOT projects and initiatives (see for example Section 2 of thisissue paper for description of potential changes to the Pedestrian Master Plan and BikeMaster Plan implementation projects).
