1)                     The Board of County Commissioners approved an application for the original S. Trade St/Four Mile Creek Greenway Underpass grant funds on 5/17/2016.  This is a 2008 bond project. Additional NCDOT/CRTPO funds were received by the County on 3/20/2018. Additional funding is being received from the Town of Matthews and approval for receiving $125,000 in funding is requested to be applied by the County as matching funds for the federal funding.


2)                     This greenway was chosen because it meets the County criteria used to identify the county bond projects as well as CRTPO criteria for funding. It has been included in the statewide TIP (Transportation Improvement Program). Design is underway and NCDOT is serving as project designer and construction manager.


3)                     Award of this funding provides citizens of Mecklenburg County the opportunity to reduce the amount of County funding necessary to complete this project. 


4)                     Town of Matthews funds would be applied toward the cost of design and construction.  The funding details of this project are detailed in Exhibit 5. This funding is in addition to a reimbursement grant already received from NCDOT and the CRTPO. No additional County funding for the project is anticipated.


5)                     The fiscal year identified is part of the STIP (State Transportation Improvement Program). The project will require more than one-year to complete. This project is tentatively scheduled to start construction in NCDOT Federal Fiscal Year 2019 (begins in October 2018).


6)                     The STP DA grant procurement regulations require that the Federal Disadvantaged Business Enterprise special provisions be used for project bidding in lieu of Mecklenburg County’s M/W/SBE provisions.  The overall purpose of the Federal DBE (Disadvantaged Business Enterprises) provisions largely aligns with Mecklenburg County’s M/W/SBE provisions by working to provide opportunities for DBE’s in the bidding process.  The total goal for DBE participation in this project has not yet been established by NCDOT and may differ from Mecklenburg County goals.
