Amendment to the FY2019 UPWP
ITP-The Rapid is requesting to amend the FY2019 Unified Planning Work Program to add a planning project for Transit Oriented Development and Multi Modal Planning on the Silver Line Corridor. This is a Section 20005(b) discretionary grant with a federal share of $696,000, a state share of $174,000, and a local share of $75,000.
The Policy Committee recommended the Board’s approval of this request at their March 20th meeting, and it will go to the GVMC Board at their next meeting, which will take place on Thursday, May 2nd, at 8:30 am at the Kent County Commission Chambers, 300 Monroe, Grand Rapids.
The FY2019 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) for the Grand Valley Metropolitan Council (GVMC) includes the budget for all federally assisted transportation planning activities that the GVMC Transportation Division, the Interurban Transit Partnership (ITP) and the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), will undertake. Any changes in the federal funding amounts under work items in the UPWP warrant a UPWP amendment and approval by the GVMC Board.
