3

Brief presentation on creating jobs, supporting economic growth, and innovative finance.

Perry provided a presentation based on Federal Highway Administrations initial white paper just after passage of MAP 21. Freight movement and economic vitality coupled with reduced project delivery delays are performance management elements linked to jobs and economic growth. Projects of National and Regional Significance will provide competitive general fund resources for initiatives beyond traditional sources of resources. Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act provides a lending source for transportation infrastructure. Ultimately, State DOTs and MPOs are being evaluated by US DOT with a report to congress due by October 2017.

4

Group discussion on clarification, implications, and interpretations.

Things to consider: Audience(s) for jobs, economic, and innovation performance information; Level of analysis and reporting-project, program, initiative, other; Sources of data–new, existing, Department of Labor, state and local economic development; and Data relationships-inferential, causal, interpretive, other.

5

Next steps

The group agreed to scheduling the next conference call meeting for June 6, 2013 at 2mp Pacific/3pm Mountain time. The conversation will focus on potentially participating in federal rule-making as a four-state I-80 Corridor group.

Caltrans has an initial series of quantitative performance measures for corridor system master plans.

Refine initial thoughts on goals, objectives, and deliverables and their implication for the group’s work.

4

Identify additional sources of information (list of initial information needs to be developed)

Tom indicated that his organization has relevant information for other working groups and that hyperlinks on the study web page would be helpful. Mike strongly encouraged the group members to provide those links and have them included in the web pages.

Develop a brief presentation for the Task Forces to explain what the group plan to accomplish

Mike reviewed agenda items for the March 12, 2013 Joint Task “Force status meeting.

ITEM

DESCRIPTION

1

Chat or Mute while individuals get organized for the meeting

Group members were given an explanation fo the chat or mute beginning of the conference call meeting.

1

Roll call for RSVP and other attendees

Roll call attendees are noted above. Tom and Shawn were new to the group and provided some background context for the I-80 Corridor System Master Plan study and this working group by Perry.

2

Brief summary of ongoing MAP 21 related activities among meeting attendees

Perry suggested to the group ideas about the benefits of this detailed discussion of the federal transportation authorization including how other working groups might draw on the work. Carl emphasized the relationship between transportation and economic development as a potential focus for the group.

3

Overview of federal rule making with discussion of experiences

This item was deferred to future discussions.

4

Brainstorm potential Working Group deliverables that makes sense to the group. Additional work on goals, objectives, and deliverables in meeting 3 to present to Task Forces

The group identified potential individual and professional organizational information useful for the group’s discussion. It is noted that individual organizations were also coordinating their efforts with existing coalitions such as the “Five State Coalition”. The defining of planning performance measures through the group’s dialogue appears valuable. Coy advocated for this group to provide a forum for each of the member organizations to gather additional insights for enhancing the work they are undertaking. The group generally recognized that performance measures, the spectrum of advocacy documentation, and the group’s collective integration for enhancing individual implementation of MAP 21 (and future) federal authorizations would be valuable.

5

Next steps including identifying additional working group members

Perry indicated he needed to compile and organize for additional group consideration. Carl identified the distinction for rural and urban advocacy within the dialogue about the corridor. Perry described potential relationships between the different study working groups that could accommodate the needs of all jurisdictions within the study and beyond.

ITEM

DESCRIPTION

1

Roll call for RSVP and other attendees

The meeting convened at 2:04.

2

Presentation of I-80 CSMP study background

Perry provided a brief review for attendees that reviewed the formulation of the working groups based on the original work many of the attendees performed in 2012. The group was provided with an overview of how the working group would coordinate with broader corridor stakeholders through the study task forces including the implications of liveability.

3

Brainstorm ground rules for how to best engage in conference calls

Perry reviewed the fundamental elements of dialogue that allow group members interact in way that foster creativity and innovation. Group members added that muting phones reduced background noise and announcing who is speaking were important. Further, it was noted that the sound of “crickets” was uncomfortable and we should strive to reduce as much as possible periods of silence.

4

Review the stakeholder primer that establishes how to use the web site and RSS feeds (presentation/discussion)

Most attendees were unfamiliar with RSS reader functionality and being able to “pull” information from their favourite internet sources. Perry provided a brief summary of the usefulness of RSS readers and said he would provide group members a overview document so they could establish their own RSS feeder accounts.

5

Next steps including identification of additional working group members

Attendees were queried about additional recruitment for the group’s dialogue. Three additional members were identified with the understanding that other potential group members would be represented within the larger study task forces.
