Informational Items
6.I.
10-Year DSATS Plan
Staff has been compiling a list of all the planning documents which must be maintained on a regular basis.  Staff will provide members with an overview of all the plans which must be prepared and their implementation schedule.  Staff will also identify proposed projects that members have previously identified and seek input from TAC members on an implementation schedule.
6.II.
LRTP Update
Staff has been compiling a list of all the planning documents which must be maintained on a regular basis.  Staff will provide members with an overview of all the plans which must be prepared and their implementation schedule.  Staff will also identify proposed projects that members have previously identified and seek input from TAC members on an implementation schedule.
6.III.
Performance Measures

MAP-21 mandates all States and MPOs must develop specific Performance Measures to ensure there are quantifiable measures of improvement to our transportation system.  Staff feels the best way to implement measures for DSATS is to implement a performance measures plan, identifying specific performance measures and testing methods to be used to meet those measures.  Staff is seeking input from members as to whether the plan should be developed with direct oversight by TAC or if an existing or new subcommittee should oversee development of the plan.

6.IV.
Route 23 Sidewalks
IDOT will be repaving IL-23 from 4th Street in DeKalb to Center Cross Street in Sycamore.  There are a number of places along that route which are missing sidewalks.  While IDOT will not fund the installation of sidewalks for this project the Policy Committee directed TAC to look at what would be required to install sidewalks where they are missing.  Staff will provide an overview of exactly where the sidewalks are missing in an accurate assessment of the footage required to install sidewalks.
6.V.

The new City of DeKalb website should become available the day of the TAC meeting.  If the new website is available online, staff will provide members a look at the new DSATS website.
