The San Mateo County Transportation Authority is announcing the release of the 2015 Measure A Pedestrian and Bicycle Program Call for Projects. The goal of the program is to provide funding for the development and construction of pedestrian and bicycle facilities in the county.
Up to $4.9 million may be made available to fund projects that best meet the pedestrian and bicycle selection and evaluation criteria contained in the Measure A Strategic Plan 2014-2019. Three percent of all sales tax revenues collected under Measure A are dedicated to pedestrian and bicycle projects, according to the voter approved program allocations.
Eligible projects include, but are not limited to:
- Paths, trails and bridges over roads and highways; and
- Pedestrian/bicycle components of larger multi-modal projects
An application workshop for the TA Pedestrian and Bicycle Program will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 12, inside the second floor auditorium of the San Mateo County Transit District headquarters, located at 1250 San Carlos Ave., in San Carlos.
During the workshop, TA staff will provide an overview of the 2015 Pedestrian and Bicycle Program Call for Projects, covering the following material: program guidelines, evaluation criteria, and the application form. There will be a question and answer session afterward during which potential applicants can inquire about project eligibility and other specific questions.
Application materials are posted at www.smcta.com/2015PedBikeCFP. The application deadline to the TA will be Friday, Dec. 18 at 4 p.m.
