and to consider Resolution No. 2002-249.

 

Park & Recreation Director Neal Lewis presented this matter to the Council.  State statutes require that public hearings be conducted whenever a municipality acquires private property.  In preparation for final plan authorization for Phase 3 of the Hike-Bike Trail, the City needs to have the new trail easements accepted by the City and then filed and recorded by the Register of Deeds.

 

The third phase of the trail has five total easements, involving four entities.  The City is presenting two easements through Broadfoot properties.  State highway and NPPD easements will be presented upon receipt in the near future.  With the easements and completed plans, Administration will secure state and federal authorization to put the third phase of the trail out to bid.

 

Funding for the third phase of the Fort Kearny to Cottonmill Trail project comes from a Department of Roads, Federal Highway ISTEA Grant of $937,400.00 of which 80% is Federal/State funded and 20% is City funded, which has been budgeted and approved.

 

Council members and Administration commended the property owners throughout the construction of the hike/bike trail in providing easements to the City for the trail. 

 

There was no one present in opposition to this hearing.

 

Moved by Zapata seconded by Kotsiopulos to close the hearing and approve the proposed acquisitions of the following tracts of land for the third phase of the hike/bike trail: BROADFOOT PROPERTY EAST - a tract of land located in the SE1/4 of Section 7, Township 8 North, Range 15 West of the 6th P.M., Buffalo County, Nebraska, being more particularly described as follows:  Referring to the Southeast corner of said Section 7; thence N00°27'12"E (assumed bearing), 966.43 ft. on the East line of said SE1/4 to the Point of Beginning; thence N83°41'44"W, 243.74 ft.; thence Northwesterly on a 365.00 ft. radius curve to the right, 216.16 ft.

VI.    REGULAR  AGENDA

 

THE ROMAN – ADDITION TO PREMISES

 

Mayor Kotsiopulos stated that the application for an addition to the licensed premise submitted by T.E. SHELDON, dba “The Roman” in connection with their Class I52918 Liquor License located at 2004 Central Avenue will remain on the table until November 12, 2002.  Therefore, no action was taken.

 

LONG RANGE TRANSPORTATION PLAN

 

Mayor Kotsiopulos opened for discussion the Agreement between the City of Kearney and the State of Nebraska Department of Roads for SPR Funds to assist in Kearney’s Long Range Transportation Plan as part of the Comprehensive Plan Update (Project No. SPR-PL-I(40) and to consider Resolution No. 2002-257.

 

Director of Public Works Rod Wiederspan presented this matter to the Council.  Nebraska Department of Roads (NDOR) initiated a new funding assistance program this year for communities that update their Comprehensive Development Plan.  The program is called the “Comprehensive Plan Assistance Program.”  The program is targeted towards assisting communities with transportation modeling using computer technology.  The outcome is a Comprehensive Plan update that includes a Long Range Transportation Plan that has a traffic assignment network and future land use information in a compatible GIS database to help both the community and NDOR better plan for future transportation improvements.

 

Since the City of Kearney Administration is currently working with Marty Shukert to update the Comprehensive Development Plan, an “Intent to Apply” form was submitted to NDOR earlier this summer.  The selection deadline was July 31st and Kearney was selected as one of the communities that is eligible to participate in the program.  The other community that was authorized this year is Columbus.  In terms of process, an agreement has been prepared by NDOR that obligates the City of Kearney and NDOR to participate in the program.  Once the agreement is executed, the Public Works Department will prepare a Request for Proposals and solicit consulting engineering firms to perform the required work on a contractual basis for NDOR and the City.  Once the contract is awarded we anticipate work to begin in December 2002 with an estimated completion time of 12 months.

 

The maximum amount of funding assistance available through this program is $75,000 with a City funding match at 20 percent.  The City of Kearney has been awarded the maximum of $75,000 from NDOR and must pay $18,750 based on the 80/20 split.  Consequently, the total amount of funds available is $93,750.  If the contract amount ends up being higher, the City will be responsible for 100 percent of the amount exceeding $93,750.

 

Moved by Kearney seconded by Buschkoetter to approve the Agreement between the City of Kearney and the State of Nebraska Department of Roads for SPR Funds to assist in Kearney’s Long Range Transportation Plan as part of the Comprehensive Plan Update (Project No. SPR-PL-I(40) and approve Resolution No. 2002-257.  Roll call resulted as follows:  Aye: Kotsiopulos, Zapata, Blankenship, Buschkoetter, Kearney.  Nay: None.  Motion carried.

 

RESOLUTION NO. 2002-257

 

            WHEREAS, the City of Kearney and the Nebraska Department of Roads desire to enter into an agreement for the purpose of providing partial funding of the Kearney Area Long Range Transportation Plan to include as an element of Kearney’s Comprehensive Plan update; and

            WHEREAS, the federal/state share will not exceed $75,000 for costs incurred as identified in the “City of Kearney Project No. SPR-PL-I(40), FY-2003 Comprehensive Plan Update”, a copy of the Agreement, marked Exhibit “A”, is attached hereto and made a part hereof by reference.

            NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the President and Council of the City of Kearney, Nebraska, that the Mayor be and is hereby authorized and directed to execute the Agreement between the City of Kearney and the State of Nebraska Department of Roads for the purpose of providing partial funding of the Kearney Area Long Range Transportation Plan to include as an element of Kearney’s Comprehensive Plan update.
