As we approach the one-year anniversary of the voter-approved passage of Measure M, we reflect on the opportunity ahead for unprecedented transportation investment in the Los Angeles region. The brand new $10B Multi-year Subregional Program (MSP) funding investment (nearly a quarter of total Measure M revenue) presents the region with a robust opportunity to demonstrate to LA County voters that their public investment matters and will be used to improve our collective quality-of-life.
This Tuesday the Metro Policy Advisory Council (PAC) will consider the role of performance measures in this new discretionary grant program. Metro staff made 3 recommendations for the committee to consider:
- Countywide Quantitative Measures
- Defined Subregional Qualitative Measures
- Voluntary Subregional Established Performance Measures
See our letter with PAC partners on why we are supporting a systematic but flexible regional performance measures framework that aligns with the Measure M ordinance core goals of accountability and transparency and demonstrate good planning practices. This is best reflected in a Hybrid Option 1/2 as suggested in the Metro memo linked above.
