MEASURE M SUBREGIONAL PROGRAM (MSP)
Measure M, which was a 1/2 cent sales tax measure to provide funding for transportation improvements across Los Angeles County, was approved by voters in November 2016. The funds generated from Measure M are expected to fund $3.3 billion in transportation improvements in the San Gabriel Valley over the course of 40 years.
In June 2018, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) adopted Measure M Guidelines to establish a process by which subregional funds under Measure M would be programmed by the subregions' respective governing/planning entities. As a result, the SGVCOG was tasked with programming and administering the Measure M Subregional Program (MSP) funds through the development of five-year subregional fund programming plans in the San Gabriel Valley.
SGVCOG FY 2017-2021 (CYCLE 1) MSP PROJECTS
After implementing a comprehensive outreach and project selection process with collaborations with the SGVCOG Transportation Committee, Public Works Technical Advisory Committee, and Planning Directors' Technical Advisory Committee, the SGVCOG awarded a total of $37,338,550 in Measure M funds to 20 eligible active transportation, first/last mile, complete streets, highway efficiency, and bus system improvement projects in the San Gabriel Valley through the adoption of Resolution 18-63 in November 2018. The funds were then allocated for the projects’ eligible expenses between FY 2017 and FY 2021.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic's impacts on cities and agencies, the SGVCOG and Metro provided the opportunity for cities and agencies with awarded projects to delay the distribution of their awarded funds. In March 2021, 11 of the 20 awarded projects requested to delay the distribution of their awarded MSP funds. The SGVCOG Governing Board subsequently approved the requests through the adoption of Resolution 21-13. The requests were officially approved by the Metro Board of Directors in May 2021.
