Transportation Economic Development (TED) Overview
• Collaboration between MnDOT and DEED for transportation infrastructure improvement projects that support economic development • Competitive project selection process to identify and support projects that assist development of a new or expanding business.
– Target industries: manufacturing, technology, warehousing and distribution, research and development, agricultural processing, bioscience, tourism/recreation, industrial park development

• Projects must also improve the statewide transportation network 25

TED Program Goals
• To address both economic and transportation system objectives of the state
• To create and preserve “head-of-household” jobs • To leverage private and local investment in public infrastructure improvements • To promote collaborative and innovative partnerships among public and private sector stakeholders 26

TED Program History
• Two solicitations so far: (2010 and 2012)
• Selected 24 projects – of 70 applications • Provided $59 million in TED grants • Leveraged over $100 million in other public and private financing • Supported an estimated 10,000 permanent, well-paying jobs

27

State Road Construction Change Requests
• $338 million in total spending in FY 2014-15
– $263 million of federal funds from new federal authorization, MAP- 21
• No net fiscal impact – reflects both additional federal revenue and expenditures

– $75 million in additional state funds in FY 2014
• One-time appropriation from existing Trunk Highway Fund balance

28

State Road Construction Appropriation
• $125.4 million in FY 2014 and $137.6 million in FY 2015 (biennial total of $263 million) • Increases state road construction appropriation to make available federal funds from MAP-21 • No net fiscal impact - reflects both additional federal funds and additional expenditures
29

State Road Construction Infrastructure Investments
• $75 million one-time appropriation in FY 2014 • Funds would be used for:
– – – – Better Roads program Other infrastructure needs (e.g. drainage structures) Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) investments Corridor Investment Management Strategy (CIMS)

• Funded from existing available fund balance in Trunk Highway Fund
30

Operations and Maintenance Increase
• $5 million annual increase to operations and maintenance budget activity, or 2%. • To help offset inflation in commodities like salt, sand, bituminous and gasoline. • Inflation has been over 3% per year since 2005, and that trend is projected to continue.

31

Economic Recovery Funds
• Extends authority to spend existing or new American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds to the end of FY 2016
• Currently anticipate $1 million of additional Trunk Highway Funds and $1 million of Federal Funds related to passenger rail activities

32

State Airports Fund Decrease
• Reduces appropriations by $500,000 in both FY 2014 and 2015 (biennial total of $1 million) • Eliminates negative fund balance currently forecast (as of November 2012) • Reductions in grants to local airports

33

Regional Development Commission (RDC) State Planning Grants Increase
• 12 Regional Development Commissions (RDCs) in Minnesota
• Partners in the Area Transportation Partnership (ATP) process
– Involved in soliciting and evaluating projects – Seek to integrate regional priorities in planning and project selection – Key partners in supporting MnDOT’s planning efforts through public involvement activities

34

Regional Development Commission (RDC) State Planning Grants Increase
• $600,000 is currently appropriated annually to RDCs, from Program Planning and Delivery budget activity
– Since 1997, each RDC has received $50,000 annually

• Change item would increase these grants to $900,000 annually, or $75,000 per RDC (50% increase)
– In recent years, RDCs have assumed additional responsibilities in supporting multimodal and interdisciplinary planning at the regional and state levels – $50,000 in 1997 is equal to roughly $72,000 in 2012 due to inflation

35

• Grade Crossing Safety Account
– Remaining balance in account is transferred to Trunk Highway Fund at the end of each biennium. Currently this is done annually.

• ARMER Maintenance (via DPS)
– Increases the maintenance budget for ARMER by $600,000 in FY 2014, and by $1,000,000 in FY 2015 and beyond – Would cover increased level of service through software subscription agreement with Motorola 36
