Document Description
The Riverside County Transportation Commission Transportation Expenditure Plan and Retail Transaction and Use Tax Ordinance, Ordinance no. 88-1 was approved by 78.9% of the voters in Riverside County in 1988. The purpose of this Plan is to relieve traffic congestion, increase safety, improve air quality, and provide funding for essential countywide transportation improvements. The Plan listed the locations of anticipated improvements in Riverside County, including Coachella Valley area. Due to unanticipated realignments in roadways and the relinquishment of State control over other roadways and highways in Coachella Valley, the Plan must now be amended to reflect current conditions and specify the current roadway segments which are eligible for funding. The resolution approving an amendment to the Plan adopted by the Board of Supervisors of Riverside County on March 3, 2009 does not approve the construction of any transportation improvement, but instead approves an amendment to the Plan in order to make funding available for the planning and environmental review of future transportation improvements. The beneficiaries of these improvements include the residents of Riverside County, particularly those of the Coachella Valley area.
