Flood Control District of Maricopa County, 2801 West Durango Street, Phoenix, Arizona 85009 (602) 506-1501
Capital Improvement Program Prioritization Procedure

Purpose of the Procedure

In accordance with Flood Control District of Maricopa County (District) Resolution 88-08A, the
District evaluates and prioritizes potential Capital Improvement Program (CIP) projects through
its annual CIP Prioritization Procedure.

The CIP Prioritization Procedure has three purposes:

   • Using established and consistent published criteria, shape the District’s Five-Year Capital
     Improvement Program (CIP) through an objective evaluation of flood control and
     regional drainage projects generated by District programs or requested by external
     agencies;

   • Provide a common frame of reference for project scoping and Intergovernmental
     Agreement (IGA) negotiation processes; and

   • Identify projects on an annual basis that would be eligible for potential inclusion and
     prioritization in the District’s Five-Year CIP.

As its name implies, this procedure applies only to the allocation of CIP resources: funding for
final design, right-of-way acquisition and construction of flood control capital projects. The
District continues to seek input from the municipalities of Maricopa County regarding planning
study priorities; however, requests for District planning or floodplain delineation funding support
should be communicated by correspondence independent of this CIP Prioritization Procedure.
District staff listed under the “Points of Contact” section of this document will coordinate these
requests.

Additionally, the recommendation of a potential CIP project through the CIP Prioritization
Procedure does not guarantee District funding; funding follows the approval of pertinent
resolutions and inter-agency agreements and is at the discretion of the District’s Board of
Directors. District staff proposes its Five-Year CIP to its Flood Control Advisory Board (FCAB) in
February of each year, incorporating projects recommended through this prioritization process
where feasible. The District’s Planning Branch coordinates MOUs and agreements with
cooperating agencies for completing pre-design studies and serves as point of contact for
project status prior to inclusion in the CIP.

Sources of Potential Projects

CIP Prioritization Procedure submittals may originate from District staff or from other requesting
agencies. The term "agency" is defined as a municipality or other government organization,
such as a department of the Federal or State government operating in Maricopa County.
                                                                                      1
Potential capital project submittals are typically identified by locally-completed storm-water
master plans, Area Drainage Master Studies (ADMSs), Area Drainage Master Plans (ADMPs),
Watercourse Master Plans (WCMPs), floodplain delineations or dam safety programs. As
ADMSs, ADMPs and WCMPs are completed and adopted, the District anticipates project
submittals by affected partner agencies will follow. District staff will work with municipalities to
prepare the necessary documents and exhibits for the municipality to adopt completed ADMSs,
ADMPs and WCMPs for land use and drainage infrastructure planning.

Procedural Summary

The CIP Prioritization Procedure involves five steps:

   • Project submittal by requesting agencies;

   • Submittal review and evaluation for recommendation by the District’s Prioritization
      Evaluation Committee (PEC);

   • Recommendation by the District’s Chief Engineer and General Manager;

   • Recommendation by the FCAB Program and Budget Committee; and

   • Recommendation approval by the FCAB.

The PEC – comprised of senior representatives from the District’s Planning and Project
Management, Operations and Maintenance, Engineering, Floodplain Management and Services
and Real Estate Divisions – conducts initial assessments of all project submittals meeting the
minimum regulatory and administrative guidelines established by this procedure. The PEC may
make an absolute recommendation or a conditional recommendation. If the PEC determines
that additional information is required for a submitted capital project, it may recommend that a
Candidate Assessment Report (CAR) be performed prior to the pursuit of a project Resolution.
The CAR investigates and assesses the design, right-of-way, permitting, mitigation,
construction, and operations and maintenance requirements and costs associated with a project
submittal. This information then serves as the basis for project agreements and scheduling.

The PEC forwards its recommendations regarding flood control capital project submittals to the
District’s Chief Engineer and General Manager for concurrence, and by the first week of
October, District staff meets with the FCAB Program and Budget Committee to review staff
recommendations. Incorporating FCAB Program and Budget Committee guidance, the staff
presents its recommendations to the FCAB for informational purposes and distributes its
recommendations to participating agencies.

Staff recommendations, including any changes received since the October FCAB meeting, are
presented to the FCAB for approval at its regular December FCAB meeting. The final, scored
priority list is then published via the District’s public website.

                                                                                       2
The recommendation of a project through the CIP Prioritization Procedure precedes final project
approval by the District’s Board of Directors (in the form of a Resolution); however, this final
approval is not inevitable. Moreover, a recommendation under this procedure does not, at any
level, constitute agreement to cost share in a proposed project. Once a recommended project
is fundamentally ready to move forward, intergovernmental agreements are still subject to
approval by the District’s Board of Directors and project partners’ governing boards.

Project Submittal Process

The District sends requests for project submittals to appropriate agencies on the second Friday
of each May, and concurrently publishes the applicable CIP Prioritization Procedure (this
document).

Agencies must provide eight copies of each project submittal, including a signed letter of intent
(LOI) (per the template contained within this instruction) with each copy. Project submittals
should clearly address the project evaluation criteria listed herein and re-established annually
under this procedure. Maps and similar graphic aids demonstrating prospective project
elements are recommended. Additionally, where local (non-District) master plans are
referenced, copies of those master plans should be included for reference by District staff.
Where discrepancies exist between a LOI and the supporting submittal, the information
contained within the LOI is considered overriding. The LOI is not a legally binding document,
but it assists in establishing a common starting point for negotiating future project MOUs and
IGAs.

In addition to new projects, the District requests agencies resubmit projects that were
previously reviewed but have experienced notable changes since their initial submittal. This
may include, for example, significant cost changes, changes in project substance following a
CAR, changes in project priority to the submitting agency or changes in area benefited due to
development.

Previously submitted projects that have not experienced a material change should not be
resubmitted. However, within a cover letter accompanying their annual submittals, project
partners are encouraged to reconfirm their standing interest and priorities for projects that were
recommended by previous prioritization procedures but that have not yet entered formal MOU
or IGA processes.

Project submittals must be received no later than the third Friday in July. The District’s
CIP/Policy Branch serves as the District’s primary point of contact, receives all CIP project
proposals and prepares project summaries for use by the PEC.




                                                                                      3
Maintenance and Safety Improvements to Existing District Structures Not Previously
Prioritized

Necessary improvements to existing District structures occasionally take the form of capital
projects. Preserving the integrity of structures operated and maintained by the District is the
District’s responsibility and its highest priority; so evaluation of these projects by the PEC is
typically unnecessary. As such, the District’s Chief Engineer and General Manager may, at his
discretion, independently recommend these projects for inclusion in the Capital Improvement
Program. Projects recommended by this method will be documented as “recommended” under
the annual Capital Improvement Program Prioritization Procedure and, through the Resolution
review process, will ultimately be submitted to the FCAB for endorsement and to the District’s
Board of Directors for approval.

Recommendation Reversals

Previously-recommended projects that are not maturing into completed capital projects in a
timely manner may revert to a “not recommended” status. In conjunction with the District’s
annual May notice of intent mailing, the Chief Engineer and General Manager will formally notify
sponsor agencies of previously-recommended projects being considered for this action. This
notification is intended to initiate a dialog between the District's and partner agencies' staffs to
ensure viable projects do not revert in status. After gathering agencies' input, District staff will
present recommendations to the FCAB each October for informational purposes, and each
December for approval. Reasons for this status revision may include, but are not limited to:

   •   Lack of an IGA for project implementation five years after a project’s submittal;

   •   Lack of dedicated sponsor agency funding to initiate a project within five years of its
       submittal;

   •   Failure of a bond election identified as a project’s intended funding source;

   •   Lack of community support for project implementation;

   •   Diminished regional flood control benefit following adoption of an updated drainage plan;

   •   Significantly increased cost projections; or

   •   Any evolution of the submitted project that would substantively (and negatively) affect
       its score under the prioritization evaluation procedure.

Sponsor agencies are encouraged to resubmit such projects after addressing the District’s
identified concerns. Resubmitted project are re-scored under the most recently revised scoring
criteria.




                                                                                       4
Prioritization Criteria

Established prioritization criteria allow District staff to uniformly evaluate District-generated and
agency-requested CIP projects.

Project submittals that do not incorporate LOIs per the District’s template are disqualified from
consideration. Each request that meets the District’s minimum administrative standards will be
evaluated by District staff and scored on the PEC Project Priority Worksheet (copy attached).
Through the weighted criteria listed below, a maximum total of 100 points per project is
possible. If insufficient data is provided for a particular criterion, no points will be awarded in
that category. No set point threshold exists for determining the PEC’s recommendation
decisions; the threshold is established following evaluation of a given year’s submittals.

Evaluation criteria, maximum point value and associated submittal requirements are listed
below:

0.   Project Description (0 Points)

A summary of the proposed project, including a location map and information concerning
project goals, problems to be addressed, anticipated project features, and relationships to any
other planned, ongoing or completed infrastructure projects.

1.   Agency Priority (5 Points)

Rank in priority (from first to last) among the agency’s current fiscal year submittals. A number
of integrated projects required to improve a particular watershed may be consolidated and
classified as a single, phased project.

Project partners are encouraged to re-confirm their standing interest in projects that have been
previously recommended by the prioritization process but have not yet entered formal MOU or
IGA processes. This correspondence is most appropriately submitted, in letter form, in
conjunction with the agency’s new-year prioritization process submittal.

2.   Flood Control / Drainage Master Plan Element (8 Points)

Relationship to existing or ongoing flood control, storm-water management or drainage master
plans. Points will be awarded on the basis of the project's relative significance or priority within
the overall plan. If the associated master plan was formally adopted (e.g., through council
action) by the submitting agency, this should be indicated on the LOI for the project submittal.
If the associated master plan was completed by an agency other than the District, then a copy
of the plan, or an executive summary, must be provided with the project submittal to receive
points in this category.




                                                                                        5
3.       Flooding Threat (15 Points)

Existing threats to property (excluding roadways) that will be mitigated by the proposed project.
The submittal should answer some or all of these questions:

     •    Is the project intended to address an existing flooding hazard, or to contain flooding to
          benefit future development?

     •    Has documented flooding of structures occurred that would be prevented or lessened in
          the future by the project? If so, on how many occasions has documented flooding
          occurred? What was the extent of the damage caused? If citizen flooding complaints
          are available, copies should be included with the project submittal.

     •    Will the project mitigate flooding hazards in a delineated floodway/floodplain? If so, was
          the floodway/floodplain delineated before or after development in the affected area?

     • What are the peak discharges and frequency of flooding events?

     • What are the depth, velocity and duration of storm-water flow?

     • What are the characteristics of the contributing watershed (size, slope, land use, etc.)?

     • Does an outfall exist? If so, is it undersized, at full capacity, or capable of handling
       additional flows?

4.       Level of Protection (10 Points)

Flood return frequency protection in comparison to protection under existing conditions.
Preference is given to projects offering higher flood return frequency (10-year to 100-year)
protection. When applicable, information regarding both the anticipated design level of
protection and the effective level of protection, such as that provided by storm drains combined
with curb and gutter roadways, should be provided.

5.       Area Protected (30 Points)

Characteristics of the geographic area protected by the proposed project. The submittal should
answer these questions:

     • What are the numbers and estimated values of benefitted residential, commercial and
       industrial buildings that are located in delineated floodways or 100-year floodplains?

     • What are the numbers and estimated values of benefitted residential, commercial and
       industrial buildings that are not located in delineated floodplains?

     • What is the number of benefitted public buildings (schools, libraries, churches, etc.)?

                                                                                        6
     • What amount of infrastructure (roads, drainage/flood control or wastewater facilities,
       etc.) would benefit or be enhanced (e.g., storm drain capacity increase from 2-10
       years.)?

     • What is the amount of benefitted cultivated acreage?

     • What is the acreage of developed, agricultural and undeveloped land to be removed from
       the 100-year floodplain?

     • What population would directly and indirectly benefit from the project?

     • What is the age of area development, and how long has the flooding problem existed?

     • Would a floodway/floodplain be reduced and/or the community’s floodplain rating be
       improved through project completion?

6.    Ancillary Benefits (10 Points)

Non-flood control benefits of the submitted project. Benefits may include:

     • Water quality implications (e.g., will storm-water be managed through basins or wetlands
       prior to its discharge to the receiving waters?);

     • Vegetation and wildlife habitat implications (e.g., will an existing wildlife corridor be
       maintained/enhanced, or will new habitat areas be created through the provision of
       dedicated drainage/open space areas?);

     • Environmentally sensitive areas (e.g., designated wildlife areas or riparian corridors) to be
       protected;

     • Multiple-use features, benefits and contributions such as ground water enhancement
       (either through groundwater percolation or direct recharge), support for alternative
       forms of transportation such as trails and bike paths, support for recreation
       opportunities, restoration of riparian and other habitats, and other open space uses and
       activities;

     • Contributions to the visual quality of the environment through preservation or
       enhancement of the natural character of the landscapes of Maricopa County and/or
       enhancement of local community character;

     • Improvement of quality of life indicators such as preservation or enhancement of cultural
       and historic resources, and opportunities for conservation education within the
       community;


                                                                                         7
     • Qualification for grant funding such as transportation enhancement funding, water
       protection funding or wildlife habitat improvement funding.

7.    Total Project Cost (5 Points)

Total design, land acquisition and construction cost. Submitting agencies should estimate these
costs and phase timelines.

8.    Level of Partner Participation (10 Points)

Proposed cost-share contribution by the submitting agency or other non-District agencies. The
District typically requires a fifty-percent cost share contribution from its partners. Preference is
given to projects with maximum external agency participation. If a future bond election is
identified as a source of funding, this should be reported in the submittal. Forms of cost-share
participation may include:

     • Direct agency funding (e.g., bonds, or property/sales tax revenues);

     • Ad-valorem tax contributions to the District;

     • Non-cash contributions (e.g., rights of way);

     • Previously-acquired land required for the project (not to exceed 30% of an agency’s cost
       share credit); and

     • Third-party funding sources (e.g., federal funds or private contributions).

9.    Operations and Maintenance Costs to the District (7 Points)

Total operations and maintenance costs to be borne by the District. Maximum ratings are
assigned to requests with minimal operations and maintenance costs to be borne by the
District.

Note: The information provided in criteria 7-9 above will be used to evaluate and rank the
requested projects and will be considered for negotiation of project partnering agreements.
However, specific partner responsibilities and cost-sharing amounts will be determined during
the IGA negotiation process with District staff on a project-by-project basis.

Channelization currently stops on both sides of the proposed project allowing 100-year events to overtop the river channel
  and pose a threat to development. The gap causes a weak spot allowing for possible lateral erosion and failure of existing
  bank protection. Will provide erosion protection from sediment at downstream locations.

  flooding is a major concern since there is no positive outfall for the existing system. Currently storm water is forced to
  siphon out of the pipe or must be aided by a pump station.

The watershed has undergone extensive development during the past 20 years. Planning studies have been completed, but
  no regional plans have been fully constructed. The Rawhide Wash watershed, a primary contributor of runoff into
  Palisene-Paradise Ridge is currently unregulated with the exception of some minor diversion berms along lower reaches.

According to the Master Drainage Plan Report, several drainage features will be designed to include multiuse functions,
  including trails, landscape and aesthetics. The entire development will be blended with natural riparian habitat and
  appropriate landscape aesthetics.
