New/Unfinished Business

Mr. Shrimplin presented a proposed amendment to the FY 2015 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP).  The City of Cape Girardeau was recently awarded funding through the Traffic Engineering Assistance Program (TEAP) to conduct a parking analysis for congested corridors in the downtown.  The parking analysis is considered a transportation study and therefore must be included in the UPWP.  The proposed amendment adds the parking analysis as a programmed activity and creates a new line item in the budget.  Mr. Mogelnicki made a motion to approve release of the proposed amendment to the FY 2015 Unified Planning Work Program for public comment.  Mr. Mehner seconded the motion.  The motion passed unanimously.

Other Communications

Mr. Shrimplin stated the next steps for the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) are to review and comment on the first three chapters of the draft and discuss vision and goals.

Upon motion made by Mr. Mehner and seconded by Mr. Mogelnicki, the Committee unanimously voted to adjourn the meeting at 11:08 a.m.
