A MOTION relating to public transportation; acknowledging receipt of a report identifying service hours proposed for reduction or redeployment by the North Link connections mobility project, submitted in response to the 2021-2022 Biennial Budget Ordinance, Ordinance 19210, Section 113, Proviso P6.

Body

                     WHEREAS, the 2021-2022 Biennial Budget Ordinance, Ordinance 19210, Section 113, Proviso P6, states that $5,400,000 of the transit appropriation shall not be expended or encumbered until the executive transmits a North Link connections mobility project redeployment report and a motion that should acknowledge receipt of the report and a motion acknowledging receipt of the report is passed by the council, and

                     WHEREAS, Ordinance 19210, Section 113, Proviso P6, directs that the North Link connections mobility project redeployment motion required by the proviso is to reference the subject matter, the proviso's ordinance number, ordinance section and proviso number in both the title and body of the motion, and

                     WHEREAS, Ordinance 19210, Section 113, Proviso P6, requires that the report:

                     A. Identify any King County-funded transit service hours in the North Link connections mobility project service area ("the project area") that are proposed to be reduced or redeployed to other areas of King County by the North Link connections mobility project service change proposal;

                     B.  Describe the proposed timeline and process for King County council approval for any proposed reduction of service hours or redeployment of transit service hours from the project area to other areas of King County, as well as how any proposed redeployment of service hours would be consistent with adopted policy, specifically the King County Metro Service Guidelines adopted through Ordinance 18301, or as amended hereafter, and the METRO CONNECTS long-range plan adopted through Ordinance 18449, or as amended hereafter; and

                     C.  Analyze the equity impact of the proposed North Link connections mobility project service change and describe how equity impact would be analyzed for any future proposed redeployment of transit service hours on priority populations as identified in the mobility framework recommendations summary that was adopted through Motion 15618, which include people of color, households with low incomes, foreign-born households or individuals with disabilities, and

                     WHEREAS, Ordinance 19210, Section 113, Proviso P6, directs the executive to electronically file the report and motion by April 1, 2021, or with the North Link connections mobility project service change ordinance if that ordinance is transmitted before April 1, 2021, with the clerk of the council, who shall retain an electronic copy and provide an electronic copy to all councilmembers, the council chief of staff and the lead staff for the mobility and environment committee, or its successor;

                     NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT MOVED by the Council of King County:

                     The King County council hereby acknowledges receipt of the report entitled
