RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Health Services Director, or designee, to apply for and accept on behalf of the County Grant Agreement #28-640-8 and ADOPT Resolution No. 2018/435 authorizing the County to request an allocation from Metropolitan Transportation Commission in an amount not to exceed $40,000 for the County’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Project for the period July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019.

FISCAL IMPACT:

Acceptance of this agreement will result in a total of $40,000 from Metropolitan Transportation Commission with a 21% County match ($8,493).











BACKGROUND:

The County’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Project goal is to provide safe walking and biking education by providing classroom education; assemblies, information tables, and school events; bicycle helmet distribution; educational materials; and facilitated bicycling and walking events. These funds will allow the County to provide eight bicycle and pedestrian safety presentations to reach at least 150 third and fourth-grade students; four bicycle and pedestrian safety assemblies to reach at least 250 middle school students; six information tables to reach at least 300 middle school students; five campus events to reach at least 200 middle school students; two to four safe bicycling or walking events with school and community partners; and provide approximately 500 helmets to children of low-income families in Contra Costa County.  
  
Approval of the Grant Agreement #28-640-8 will allow the County to receive grant funding for its bicycle and pedestrian education services through June 30, 2019.

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

If this grant agreement is not accepted, the additional bicycle and pedestrian safety projects will be delayed or not carried out.
