    17.    
City Council Regular
Meeting Date: 02/25/2020  

SUBJECT:
ESTABLISHMENT AND APPOINTMENT OF TWO MEMBERS TO THE TRANSPORTATION AD HOC COMMITTEE
RECOMMENDATION:
1. Establish a Transportation ad hoc Committee.

2. Appoint two members of the City Council to the Transportation ad hoc Committee.
BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS:
The City of Chino Hills has approximately 200 miles of public streets and is bordered by the 71, 60, and 91 state highways. These roadways serve the residents of Chino Hills, its visitors, and commuters from the broader region including San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange and Los Angeles counties. All modes of private, public and commercial vehicles utilize this transportation system. Pedestrians and cyclists also rely on these transportation systems. These various conveyances are managed by local, county, and state agencies with federal funding also playing a critical role in the maintenance and enhancement of the transportation system.

Multiple members of the City Council represent the City at a variety of regional transportation agencies. These Council Members represent the interests of Chino Hills residents and keep the community and the City Council informed on transportation issues.

Because of the complex nature of our local and regional transportation system, City staff is recommending that a Transportation ad hoc Committee be formed to work with staff to evaluate transportation needs, issues, and funding requirements. The Committee, with the assistance of the City Manager and staff, will develop coordinated and comprehensive policy, funding and legislative advocacy recommendations to present to the City Council. Staff, therefore, is recommending that the City Council establish a Transportation ad hoc Committee and appoint two City Council Members to serve on the Committee. The City Manager and designees will support the Committee.
ENVIRONMENTAL (CEQA) REVIEW:
This proposed action is exempt from review under the California Environmental Quality Act (California Public Resources Code §§ 21000, et seq., "CEQA") and CEQA Guidelines (Title 14 California Code of Regulations §§ 15000, et seq.), because it does not involve any commitment to a specific project which could result in a potentially significant physical impact on the environment; and, constitutes an organizational or administrative activity that will not result in direct or indirect physical changes in the environment. Accordingly, this action does not constitute a "project" that requires environmental review (see specifically 14 CCR § 15378(b)(4-5)).
