    The Community Advisory Committee (CAC) will have three vacancies at the end of October. The District 4 and 11 offices are currently evaluating candidates to fill the vacancies created by the term expiration of Nancy Buffum and Robert Gower, respectively, who are not seeking reappointment.

  4. Transportation Authority’s Project Priorities for the Senate Bill 1 Local Partnership Program Competitive Grant Program— INFORMATION*
    Projects in Priority Order: 1) BART: Next Generation Faregates ($5,412,587). 2) SFPW: Transbay Howard Streetscape Improvements ($12,875,000).

    We brought this item directly to the Board for action in October to ensure that BART and SFPW had sufficient time to prepare applications for submission to the California Transportation Commission by the November 29, 2022 application deadline. This item was not ready for presentation to the CAC in September because staff needed to gather additional project details and coordinate the recommendation with the One Bay Area Grant Cycle 3 project priorities, which the Board approved on September 27, 2022. We are including this as an information item for the CAC at its October 26, 2022 meeting.
