Proposition K | 5-Year Prioritization Programs

The Prop K Expenditure Plan requires that each programmatic category (i.e., not project-specific) develop a 5-Year Prioritization Program (5YPP) prior to receiving Prop K allocations. This requirement applies to 21 programs such as street resurfacing, new signals and signs, traffic calming, and transit enhancements. The Expenditure Plan established limits on funding for each of the 21 programmatic categories, and described the types of projects that are eligible, but did not detail specific projects for funding within each category nor the timing for receipt of funds. The 5YPPs provide input to the Strategic Plan, which aggregates all projects and programs for purposes of overall financial management of the sales tax revenue.

The 5YPPs are intended to provide a stronger link between project selection and expected project performance, and to support on-time, on-budget project delivery, and timely and competitive use of state and federal matching funds. Important elements of the 5YPPs include: establishing prioritization criteria, performance measures, identifying projects to be funded in the next 5 years, and incorporating public input. The desired outcome of the 5YPPs is the establishment of a strong pipeline of grant-ready projects that can be advanced as soon as funds (Prop K, federal, state and others) are available.

The process of updating the 5YPPs allows the Transportation Authority Board, project sponsors, and the public to have a clear understanding of, and a tangible impact on, how projects are prioritized and selected for the best use of Prop K funds over the next 5 years.
