Placer County Transportation Planning Agency (PCTPA)
I-80/H65 and Fairway/Galleria update

Date:  1/12/2016 at Spring Valley Church, Rocklin

Loren and Sue Cook attended a PCTPA meeting as RCONA Representatives to hear several updates for local traffic issues.   
Celia McAdams of the PCTPA gave some overall updates for various funding for traffic improvements projects in the local area (all info and great maps available on the PCTPA website) including developer impact fees (collected as permits are pulled for area homes and businesses).  

They will ask for a local Transportation Sales Tax –Measure A on the November ballot for Placer County to meet 20% of the costs.  ½% sales tax over 30 years—needed to provide $1.25 Billion for these projects; has to include specific projects; needs 2/3 majority vote.

For the I-80/H65 interchange project, Alternate 2 has been selected as the best plan; this adds an auxiliary lane to run parallel to I-80, still allows access to Taylor Road which was a large concern for businesses in that area.  Comments have been responded to the EIR and will go to the Transportation board for approval next.  

Phase 1-A construction will begin 2017 through 2018, adding a 3rd lane to H65 through to Pleasant Grove Blvd.  Funding will come from Cal-Trans Safety funds and the City of Roseville.  They will also change to off ramps to Stanford Ranch Road.  Project 1-A is mostly paid for--$37 Million project, still need $4 Million.   

Chris Benson, project manager, introduced improvements to Stanford Ranch Road area—easing congestion to the Costco and 5-Star Blvd. interchange area.  A signal will be installed at the off-ramps from H65 going onto Stanford Ranch Road and on the overpass, with changes made similar to the access from H65 to Galleria Blvd. on the side heading towards the Galleria Mall previously completed.  A dedicated on-ramp to NB 65 will be added (coming from Costco side) so traffic won’t have to stop at a light.  Most of the project will involve night work, so it’s expected to have minimal impact on traffic.  The EIR is under review now reflecting minimal impacts, and will circulate for comment in February 2016 and be ready for final posting in May 2016.  

They will combine portions of the three projects for cost and efficiency to help speed things up.  If the Sales Tax passes, bonds can be used for a money source (impact fees are not eligible for bonds).  Phase 1-A will begin first with the viaduct construction at Stanford Road /Galleria will begin first, and then proceed with the auxiliary lane from I-80 to H-65.  
The PCTPA has excellent project maps and details available on their website.
Roseville Electric - Solar Project Presentation
Dates:  1/12/2016 FFNA and WestPark NA Joint Board Meeting
            1/24/2016 Roseville Coalition of Neighborhood Associations (RCONA)
Shawn Matchim (Electric Regulation Compliance Administrator for Roseville Electric) and Vonette McCauley (RE Public Information Officer) presented a proposed Community Solar Pilot Project that is in the early assessment stage.  $150,000 was authorized by the City Council to study Solar resources, mainly to reach out to those where rooftop solar is not feasible for different reasons.  The City of Roseville currently has the highest penetration of rooftop solar in the nation, and a great many of our developments in the WestPark and Fiddyment Farm provide solar homes.  By 2030, federal and state regulations require 50% of RE’s energy must come from renewable energy sources.
In 2007, basic steps were begun to determine site controls and regulatory work required.  Phase 1 would be a pilot project with a range of 500 kW to 900 kW which will try to reach out to 200-400 customers.  Phase 2 would expand the project if the pilot program is successful.
The project site would be City-owned property North and NW of the Roseville Power Plant in the West Roseville Specific Plan.  Because of federal restrictions on public utilities companies, the use of a 3rd party developer and manager would be required; the developer would be eligible for the 30% federal tax credit which RE isn’t eligible for.

The proposed model:  Those customers who buy/opt-in (per kW) to the program would receive the benefit of the solar energy earned from the project; credit would be placed against their bill utility bills (basically a paper transaction).    They have specific Return on Investment figures yet, but expect the savings to be competitive with rooftop solar, but without having to purchase solar for the home.  Potential participation by businesses (at capped levels) has not been ruled out, but the pilot project will apply to residential participation only.  Customers city-wide would be eligible for the project, it would not be limited to any one area. 

The pilot project is expected to begin late this year or early 2017.  Education and technology changes will be presented to the public.  One board member asked about any visual deterrents to the project, such as visual glare, heat, and location screening issues -- Mr. Matchim said studies will be done for all environmental and safety aspects of the project.
