Old Business-
  1. Capital Improvement Program- Peterson Adams introduces Fleury for his rundown of his report to City Counsel. Links to full document and staff’s background report can be found in meeting agenda. Fleury relays that he presented the recommendations from the Commission to Council and lays out next steps and budget process timelines. Graf asks about the TSP update in relation to Downtown, Fleury recalls that when the project was stopped it was anticipated to be readdressed after two years, so it is his opinion that the Downtown Project is separate from the TSP, but he does state that smaller related projects could be added to the TSP in order to create a backbone that the project can build from once it starts back up. Commission intends to interject themselves as much as possible in the Downtown Revitalization Project in order to stress the importance of the project in the Commission’s multi modal transportation goals. Commission would like to revisit the conversation on future agenda topics to formalize the will of the Commission.
