Governor Baker Acts to Deliver Reliable Public Transit with MBTA Reform Legislation:

An Act for a Reliable, Sustainable MBTA pursues special panel recommendations; establishes 3-year fiscal control board


Press Release from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Office of the Governor


Boston, MA -- Today, Governor Charlie Baker filed An Act for a Reliable, Sustainable MBTA, acting on many of the recommendations made by the special panel that reported their findings earlier this month. The legislation would establish a Fiscal Management and Control Board (FMCB) and Chief Administrator to oversee operations and finances through 2018, create capital plans, introduce reporting and audit requirements and lift procurement restrictions for the MBTA. Together the FMCB and Chief Administrator would be charged with establishing a safe, reliable, financially sound and sustainable customer-oriented public transit system.


"This bill directly responds to the special panel's recommendations. We look forward to the Legislature's swift action on the reforms necessary to restore the public's faith in the Commonwealth's transit system," said Governor Baker. "The T failed its stress test this winter when we needed it most, exposing the deep operational problems and lack of planning. We simply cannot afford a repeat and this legislation sets in motion significant reforms to once again deliver accountability, reliability and the world-class transportation system Massachusetts deserves."


"The special panel concluded that a strong fiscal and management control board is vital to solving the MBTA's chronic and pervasive failures," said Secretary Pollack. "The legislation would give the MBTA many new tools that are essential if we are to succeed in transforming the MBTA organizationally and rebuilding and modernizing its assets."


"At the MBTA, we are already hard at work implementing the Special Review Panel's recommendations, but this legislation and the fiscal and management control board that it creates are essential to ensuring that we can correct longstanding problems at the T so that it can provide the reliable transit services that our riders want and deserve," said Frank DePaola, Interim Executive Director of the MBTA.


More about An Act for a Reliable, Sustainable MBTA:

* Effective Oversight and Management: A Fiscal Management Control Board (FMCB) will function as the board of the MBTA, consisting of 5 members, 3 appointed by the Governor, and 1 each referred to the Governor by the Senate President and Speaker of the House, through June 30, 2018. The daily operational, budgeting and planning duties would lie with a Chief Administrator appointed by the Governor.


* Reconstitute the MassDOT Board: Chaired by the Secretary of Transportation, the MassDOT Board will consist of 11 members, eight serving four-year terms coterminous with the Governor, and three serving three-year terms. Members will include a representative from an MBTA core community, an outer MBTA community and a city or town served by a regional transit authority.


* Financial Accountability and Transparency: The FMCB will immediately develop one and five year operating budgets with a focus on improving productivity and increasing revenues. A clear separation of the operating and capital budgets will be implemented and improved procurement practices will move the MBTA to assuring that its capital funds are timely and well spent. The MBTA Retirement Fund would be frozen for payouts to new hires until an independent audit is completed within 180 days and would be subjected to annual audits and public record law.


* Operations, Personnel and Contracting: The FMCB will have the ability to restructure the organization of the MBTA and will install rigorous performance management metrics while altering existing procurement requirements and lifting the Pacheco Law's application to the MBTA.

FEMA Flood Map Update:


In response to the City of Quincy's successful appeal of the FEMA flood maps, the federal government will formally issue legal notice on Tuesday, April 14, 2015 that it has completed its preliminary revisions based on the appeal.

A second formal notice will follow on Thursday, April 23, 2015 and the City of Quincy's engineering team is working to have a user-friendly version of the new maps available via the City of Quincy's website the following day on Friday, April 24, 2015.


The 120-day public comment period -- which includes 90 days to submit comments and 30 days for the Federal government to respond -- begins after the second notice is issued. Residents affected by the maps are encouraged, if possible, to wait until the electronic version is available for the best possible understanding of the revised maps.

MBTA Panel Calls for Fiscal Control Board, Multi-Year Plans To Fix Broken System:

Press Release from the Office of the Governor of Massachusetts


Boston, MA -- Today, Governor Charlie Baker released a detailed report compiled by the MBTA special panel and outlined a plan of action to reform and improve the MBTA. The panel's recommendations include creating a five-member Fiscal and Management Control Board, as well as the creation of one, five and 20 year spending plans after the group uncovered massive structural and management failures that are on pace to bankrupt the system if left unchecked.


"Massachusetts deserves a reliable, well-managed, cost effective transportation system, and this in-depth report offers a plan of action to responsibly pursue organizational and operational reforms to reach this goal," said Governor Baker. "Thanks to the hard work of the panel members, we have action items to improve service reliability, correct the failures that would bankrupt the MBTA if left unchecked and rescue the transportation system our economy relies upon."


On Friday, February 20, 2015, the Baker Administration announced a team of national leaders in transportation, economic development and municipal planning charged with performing an in-depth diagnostic review of the MBTA's core functions. The panel met 18 times over six weeks to review past studies, with MBTA staff, MassDOT leadership, transit advocates and labor representatives in order to benchmark the MBTA against peer agencies and analyze performance through objectives analysis. The panel synthesized recent MBTA studies, conducted a performance review, examined the MBTA's core functions and compared results with other transit operations to assess the status of the system's governance, finances, and capital planning.


From a press conference at the State House, the Baker Administration and members of the panel announced a summary of key findings and proposed recommendations for short and long term reforms centered on a fiscal management control board:


Key Findings:

* Unsustainable Operating Budget: The MBTA would be insolvent if not for continuing and increasing subsidies due to a severe imbalance between costs and revenue.


* Chronic Capital Underinvestment: The MBTA has not spent the capital funds already available to it, resulting in chronic underinvestment in the aging fleet and infrastructure.


* Bottleneck Project Delivery: The MBTA struggles to get projects completed.


* Ineffective Workplace Practices: The MBTA is ineffective at managing work due to weak workplace practices and chronic absenteeism.


* Shortsighted Expansion Program: MassDOT and the MBTA lack a long-range expansion strategy shaped around the physical and financial capacity of the MBTA and future needs for regional transit.


* Organizational Instability: The MBTA is hampered by frequent leadership changes, vacancies, and looming attrition.


* Lack of Customer Focus: The MBTA is not organized to operate as a customer-oriented business.


* Flaw Contracting Process: The MBTA's procurement and contract management is inefficient.


* Lack of Accountability: The Commonwealth of Massachusetts provides more than half of the MBTA operating budget and additional funding for capital projects, but the MBTA is not accountable to the Governor or the Legislature.



After considering a range of scenarios, the panel recommends creating a Fiscal and Management Control Board to enforce new oversight and management support, and increase accountability over 3-5 year time frame. The goals will target governance, finance, agency structure and operations through recommended executive and legislative actions that embrace transparency and develop stability in order to earn public trust.


* New Fiscal and Management Oversight: Replace the current MassDOT board with a five-member Fiscal and Management Control Board, with three members appointed by the Governor and one each nominated by the Speaker of the House and the Senate President. The Governor appoints a Chief Administrative Officer to lead the T, who repots to the Control Board.


* Capture Revenue Opportunities: Significantly increase MBTA self-generated revenue from fare, advertising and real estate, as well as through grants and federal programs.


* Budget Firewall: Build a firewall between the operating and capital budgets - construct one, five and twenty year plans for each.


* Capital Planning: Create a dedicated state-funded capital program to modernize vehicles and infrastructure and pause construction spending for system expansion (except for federally funded projects) until such a plan is in place.


* Customer Service: Create customer-oriented performance management and strengthen communications.


* Update System Routes: Rationalize and reform system routes, including buses.


The MBTA special panel is co-chaired by Katie Lapp, Executive Vice President for Harvard University and former Executive Director and CEO for the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and Brian McMorrow of Massport, and includes Jane Garvey, a national leader in transportation policy, Jose A. Gomez-Ibanez, the Derek C. Bok Professor of Urban Planning and Public Policy at Harvard University, Joseph Sullivan, the Mayor of Braintree and former Chair of the Joint House-Senate Transportation Committee, and Robert Gittens, the Vice President of Public Affairs at Northeastern University.

Massachusetts Department of Transportation: Motor Vehicle Law:


The MassDOT Registry of Motor Vehicles and Highway Divisions, along with the Massachusetts State Police Department, advised motorists of a new law taking effect on Tuesday, April 7, 2015 requiring the use of headlights and taillights on motor vehicles during inclement weather and when windshields wipers are in use. The law is intended to increase safety and visibility of vehicles on the Commonwealth's roadway.


The changes to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 85, Section 15, signed into law in January, require that front and rear motor vehicle lights be activated in all of the following conditions:

* When windshield wipers are on.

* When low light or weather conditions prevent other vehicles or persons from being seen at 500 feet.

* From 1/2 hour after sunset to 1/2 hour before sunrise.


Relying on daytime running lights for these conditions is not sufficient under the law. A violation of this law is considered a surcharge minor motor vehicle traffic law violation for insurance purposes.

Mayor and Developers Announces 3 Downtown Projects:

High-rise, hotel, and condos planned as next phase


Mayor Thomas P. Koch joined with three developers today to announce a proposed 15-story residential tower, a hotel, and a luxury condominium building that will anchor the next step of Quincy Center redevelopment.


Developers Peter O'Connell of Quincy, Alex Matov, of LBC Boston and Quincy native Sean Galvin of Galvcon Development detailed their mixed-use projects at a news conference today in the Mayor's office. Combined, the projects will total in the range of $100 million in private investment.


"This is a tremendously important step forward for the future of Quincy Center," said Mayor Koch. "We have been working for some time to creating the opportunity to bring this kind of private investment to the heart of Quincy Center, and it's going to happen. The time is now, and I'm thrilled that these developers have shown such great commitment to our future."


* O'Connell, who has developed landmark local projects such as Marina Bay and Quarry Hills, will build a 122-unit, 15-story luxury high rise in the Hancock Parking Lot.


* LBC Boston, which has spent more than $23 million acquiring property around Quincy Center over the last year, will build a 116-room hotel at 1500 Hancock Street, the block beginning at the corner of Cottage Avenue.


* Galvcon Development, a long-time Quincy developer of high-end residential properties, will build 48 luxury condominium units on the site once home to Woolworth's at the intersection of Hancock Street and Cliveden Street.


The Mayor also announced that this phase of development will include the construction of a parking garage in the Hancock Lot. The designed and total number of spaces is being engineered now. Based on the design of the garage, remaining property in the Hancock Lot will be offered to additional developers in the form of a Request For Proposals.


He said the City of Quincy's overall strategy for the downtown has remained unchanged, asserting that any infrastructure investment will be directly tied to a new revenue generated by the private development.


"We've said from Day One, we've held to it, and we're going to continue to hold to it -- the downtown will pay for itself," he said.


The O'Connell development will also require a land agreement with O'Connell, which will include an extensive public approval process when presented to the City Council. That agreement is slated to take shape in coming weeks. A smaller agreement may also be required depending on the sitting of the LBC Boston development proposal.


The proposals comes as construction for the first step of downtown redevelopment, Quincy Mutual Insurance's West of Chestnut development, is getting underway. That plan, being developed by Gate Residential, calls for a $100 million investment and 400 units of luxury housing split into two phases.
