For major projects a preliminary plan and a cost estimate will be prepared. This report will be the basis of establishing the design parameters and preliminary project cost. For thoroughfare street projects, this report will also establish the cross section, right-of-way widths, median openings, intersection geometrics, future traffic signal locations, and vertical and horizontal alignments. The preliminary plan is a valuable tool to ensure subsequent development complies with the ultimate construction.

The CARS program provides funds to the cities of Johnson County to construct and maintain their major arterial streets. Each year the cities submit a 5-year road improvement plan to Johnson County. Using a scoring system, Johnson County selects projects and allocates funds. The CARS Program pays 50% of the projects construction and construction inspection costs. Cities are responsible for design, right-of-way, and utility relocation costs. In January of each year Johnson County sends the City a program letter detailing the process for submitting funding requests for the CARS Five-Year Program.  Submittals must be completed by the date stated in the program letter.  One form must be submitted for each project in the Five-Year Program.

Home I-Vision II-Preliminary Design III-Final Design IV-Pre-Construction V-Construction VI-Retrospect

Introduction

Phase I - Vision

Phase I is the beginning of a project. The principal document involved is the City's Five-Year Capital Improvements Program (Task 5). For extensive complex projects a preliminary study should be performed for establishing the scope and estimating the project cost.

Project funding is determined early in the planning/scheduling process. Funding sources will depend on project classification and qualifications. The proposed funding sources will have a significant role in determining the tasks that will be involved in this or subsequent phases of a project. For example, if Federal funding is involved, KDOT and MARC are major players in this and subsequent phases.

A major objective of this manual is to receive permission from KDOT, subsequent to approval, for the City's Public Works staff to manage/administer Federal funded projects.

Phase I Checklist

Task 1 - Prepare Preliminary Engineering Study/Cost Estimate

For major projects a preliminary study will be conducted and the report prepared. This report will be the basis for establishing the design parameters and preliminary project cost. For thoroughfare street projects, the report will also establish the cross section, right-of-way widths, median openings, intersection geometry, future traffic signal locations, and vertical and horizontal alignments. The preliminary study is a valuable tool to ensure subsequent development complies with the ultimate construction.

The City's website provides interactive Preliminary Engineering Studies map with the links to the reports and plan drawings.

Exhibit No. I-1 is a list of the City's Standard Bid Items.

Task 2 - Prepare Feasibility Report

Top

A feasibility report is required when an Improvement District is proposed as a method of financing all or part of a project. This feasibility report is required to have the following:

  • Project description,
  • A description of the proposed improvements and benefit points if applicable,
  • Estimate of probable cost and the potential funding sources available for the project (Improvement District, SMAC, and City funds) including the apportionment of the costs,
  • A legal description of the property to be included in the Improvement District,
  • Easement and property acquisitions,
  • Method of assessment,
  • Apportionment of cost and
  • A summary of the project and a staff recommendation.


Citizens' petition for requesting projects and/or services is an important method of determining interest. If IDs are the method for financing projects, a formal approved petition form must be obtained from the City along with any instructional information.

Exhibit No. I-2a is a copy of the City’s petition form for an Improvement District.
Exhibit No. I-2b is a sample Feasibility Report for the improvement project financed by an ID.


Property owner(s) desiring consideration of a Storm Drainage Improvement Project shall make a written request to the City that outlines the nature and history of the problem and indicates their support for the improvements.

If the nature and history of the problem is a public matter, City staff, upon approval of the Governing Body, may complete a Feasibility Study and/or Preliminary Engineering Study to include problem description; conceptual improvements, and a preliminary cost estimate for all potential Storm Drainage Improvement projects.

After we have conducted a Feasibility Study and/or a PES and have a feasible solution, we mail out "Informal Petitions" to document the support from the neighborhood and their intent to donate easements as outlined in Resolution 3900.

Informal petitions are also available for requesting streetlight and sidewalk projects.

Exhibit No. I-2g is an informal petition form for sidewalk projects.

Governing Body Resolution No. 4384 establishes the policy on creating ID's for bank stabilization projects.

Governing Body Resolution No. 3900 establishes the policy on creating ID's for drainage projects.

Public Works Standard Operating Procedure for Prioritization of Storm Drainage Improvements.

Task 3 - Prepare SMAC Project Addition Study (Form)

Top

If a proposed project was not identified by the County's Consulting Engineer, in the initial or subsequent study, a project addition request letter for a proposed project must first be submitted to the Stormwater Program Manager for approval prior to beginning the Preliminary Engineering Study. The project request letter shall include all the requirements documented in the Administrative Procedures. After the proposed project request is approved, an interlocal agreement is prepared and executed prior to beginning the Preliminary Engineering Study.

Exhibit No. I-3a is a copy of the Johnson County, Stormwater Management Program Policy.
Exhibit No. I-3b is a copy of the Johnson County, Stormwater Management Advisory Council, By Laws.
Exhibit No. I-3c is a copy of the Johnson County, Administrative Procedures for the Stormwater Management Program.

Maintenance projects replacing structurally deteriorated stormwater infrastructure may qualify for funds provided by Johnson County Stormwater Strategic Asset Management Plan (SAMP).

Exhibit No. I-3d is the project template.
Exhibit No. I-3e is the project reimbursement form.
Exhibit No. I-3f is the Johnson County SAMP Report.
Exhibit No. I-3g is a project submittal sample.

Task 4 - Obtain City Council Approval - PES

Completed Preliminary Engineering Study may need Public Works Committee review and recommendation to the City Council, especially if the proposed design deviates from any City ordinance or policy. The Director of Public Works shall make this determination.

Task 5 - Obtain City Council Approval - CIP
