CC RESO 1402 (060220) Suspending CFP Process COVIDRESOLUTION NO. 1402 (2020) A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF BOTHELL, WASHINGTON TEMPORARILY SUSPENDING THE CAPITAL FACILITIES PLANNING PROCESS ESTABLISHED BY RESOLUTION AND ADOPTING AN ABBREVIATED PROCESS THAT 1S CONSISTENT WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE GROWTH MANAGEMENT ACT. WHEREAS, State law requires that all cities planning under the State's Growth Management Act (GMA) must have a Capital Facilities Plan (CFP) that has been adopted by the governing body; and WHEREAS, State law requires that the capital facilities plan must cover a six- year planning period and the plan must be updated at least every two years; and WHEREAS, the City of Bothell plans under the GMA and is due for an update of its CFP in 2020, the updated plan will include the years 2021-2027 (the 2021-2027 Update); and WHEREAS, the City's process for the CFP update is prescribed by Resolution 1183 (2006), the specific process contained therein is detailed and is more prescriptive than required by the GMA; and WHEREAS, the need to provide a safe environment for the public and staff and the current Stay Home, Stay Healthy order and expected slow return to a normal meeting environment would make executing the process prescribed by the aforementioned Resolution nearly impossible; and WHEREAS, the economic impact of COVID-19 on funding assumed in the current Adopted CFP significantly reduces the revenue forecast in the Adopted CFP and is a significant detriment to the City's ability to deliver planned projects on schedule and a realignment of resources with project schedules is required; and WHEREAS, there are numerous projects that have already been identified in adopted comprehensive plans that the City is unable to complete within the CFP's seven-year planning period even under normal economic conditions; and WHEREAS, based on the preceding, it appears reasonable to scale back committee and public involvement to match the expected limited changes to the CFP for the 2021-2027 Update due to the environment created by COVID-19; thereby saving costs, staff and committee time, and reducing unrealistic expectations to all involved. NOW, THEREFORE, THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF BOTHELL, WASHINGTON, DOES RESOLVE AS FOLLOWS: Page 1 of 2 1402 (2020) Section 1. The CFP update process prescribed by Resolution 1183 (2006) is suspended for the 2021-2027 CFP update and an abbreviated process is hereby implemented as described in Section 2. Section 2. The 2021-2027 CFP update shall be accomplished by executing the following steps: Revenues will be re -forecasted for all relevant years; Projects that are already underway but expected to be incomplete at December 31, 2020 will get first priority for funding; Then, other projects in the Adopted CFP will be scheduled in the CFP to align with the availability of funding and consistent with the prioritization criteria contained in Resolution 1183 (2006). The committee and public process will be eliminated. However, the update will be brought to the City Council for consideration of adoption and a public hearing will be held thereby allowing some input, if desired, by the public. The public hearing and adoption of the update by the City Council must occur before December 31, 2020. Section 3. The City Clerk is authorized to make necessary corrections to this resolution including, but not limited to, the correction of scrivener's/clerical errors, references, resolution numbering, section/subsection numbers and any references thereto.
