Busi­ness Items:

Approve ZHA, Inc. Annu­al Review – May 2022

Mr. McClel­lan explained we do an Annu­al Review with ZHA, Inc., and that Staff is very hap­py with the per­for­mance of ZHA, Inc. this past year and rec­om­mend that the Board approve that we con­tin­ue using ZHA, Inc. For the upcom­ing year.

Mr. Rick Mellin gave a pre­sen­ta­tion of activ­i­ties they per­formed and accom­plished over the last year and what they are plan­ning to accom­plish in the upcom­ing year.

Dur­ing the past year, ZHA, Inc. has per­formed and com­plet­ed numer­ous tasks for the Air­port. The projects have ranged from pro­vid­ing and ensur­ing envi­ron­men­tal over­sight and com­pli­ance, pro­vid­ing plan­ning ser­vices on mul­ti­ple ongo­ing air­port con­struc­tion projects, and by pro­vid­ing design and con­struc­tion over­sight of ongo­ing projects.

Dur­ing his past year, ZHA, Inc. strived to work in the best inter­est of the Air­port Author­i­ty and has per­formed the projects in an exem­plary man­ner.

Staff rec­om­mends approval of the annu­al renew­al of the Pro­fes­sion­al Engi­neer­ing, Archi­tec­tur­al, Project Inspec­tion, Con­struc­tion Man­age­ment and Plan­ning Ser­vice Agree­ment with ZHA, Incor­po­rat­ed for Year 2 of their agree­ment, based on their sat­is­fac­to­ry per­for­mance in Year 1.

b. Con­struc­tion Man­age­ment at Risk – North Expan­sion — Pre­sen­ta­tion

Mr. Rick Mellin of ZHA, Inc. gave a pre­sen­ta­tion show­ing the pros and cons of dif­fer­ent con­struc­tion deliv­ery meth­ods. Mr. McClel­lan explained why we chose Con­struc­tion Man­age­ment at Risk (CM@Risk) when the build of the expan­sion was start­ed, and that it saved $1.3 mil­lion. The rea­son for the pre­sen­ta­tion was so that the Board, espe­cial­ly the new­er Board Mem­bers, may see why we chose the CM@Risk project deliv­ery method.

Mr. McClel­lan advised based on this dis­cus­sion, it appears we have con­sen­sus on using Con­struc­tion Man­age­ment at Risk for the North Build­ing Expan­sion.

c. Adopt Peer to Peer Vehi­cle Shar­ing Oper­a­tion Agree­ment – Turo, Inc.

Mr. McClel­lan explained that over the last sev­er­al years, peer-to-peer vehi­cle shar­ing has grown in pop­u­lar­i­ty and is used across the nation, includ­ing at ECP. The impact on the Air­port has been dif­fi­cult to deter­mine, since there was no report­ing mech­a­nism in place. Recent­ly Staff was con­tact by Turo, Inc. in order to estab­lish an agree­ment for peer-to-peer vehi­cle shar­ing.

Peer-to-Peer Vehi­cle Shar­ing allows own­ers of vehi­cles to rent their vehi­cles to inter­est­ed par­ties, and it con­tin­ues to devel­op with the increased use of tech­nol­o­gy. Peer-to-Peer­ing com­pa­nies use a mobile app to arrange for the use of a vehi­cle by an indi­vid­ual. The mobile app plat­form allows for indi­vid­u­als to review cars avail­able in an area, select a vehi­cle, and coor­di­nate pick-up and drop-off loca­tions and cost. Pas­sen­gers con­firm the rental infor­ma­tion on the app and own­ers deliv­er vehi­cles to a pre­de­ter­mined loca­tion at a spe­cif­ic date and time. There is no cash trans­ac­tion at the Air­port as every­thing is com­plet­ed through the app. One of the largest peer-to-peer vehi­cle shar­ing is Turo, Inc.

He explained Turo, Inc. will be able to uti­lize any avail­able park­ing spaces for the trans­ac­tions estab­lished through the App, and the Air­port does not have any respon­si­bil­i­ty in the trans­ac­tion, but the Air­port will be able to col­lect a 10% Con­ces­sion Fee.

The Agree­ment devel­oped with Turo, Inc. allows for users of the mobile app to pick up a vehi­cle at the Air­port in the long/​short term park­ing lots or at anoth­er pre-deter­mined loca­tion close to the Ter­mi­nal. Vehi­cles deliv­ered to the Air­port pri­or to the arrival of the renter will be parked in the long/​short term park­ing lots. The loca­tion is then trans­mit­ted to the renter, and upon arrival, the renter will pay the park­ing fees upon exit­ing the lot. If it is deter­mined the own­er would like to phys­i­cal­ly hand the keys to the renter, the Air­port will pro­vide for a short-term park­ing loca­tion, at which loca­tion the vehi­cle will not be left unat­tend­ed.

The Air­port will receive park­ing and a 10% con­ces­sion fee of the trans­ac­tion amount, as defined in the Oper­at­ing Agree­ment.

Staff and legal coun­sel have worked with Turo, Inc. to estab­lish an oper­at­ing agree­ment that is agree­able to all par­ties and allows for Turo, Inc. to begin oper­a­tions at the Air­port under an Agree­ment. Staff will also mon­i­tor oth­er peer-to-peer vehi­cle shar­ing apps and uti­lize this Agree­ment as the basis. Turo, Inc. will send month­ly com­pli­ance reports allow­ing audit capa­bil­i­ties, and will remit month­ly rev­enues due the Air­port. Turo, Inc. and its agents will fol­low all Air­port Rules and Reg­u­la­tion and the Agree­ment allows the Air­port to mod­i­fy or ter­mi­nate the agree­ment with 30 days’ notice.

It should be not­ed that the State of Flori­da has addressed Peer-to-Peer Car/​Vehicle Shar­ing in Flori­da Stat­ue 627.7483.

Staff rec­om­mends the adop­tion of the Peer-to-Peer Vehi­cle Shar­ing Oper­at­ing Agree­ment and autho­rize staff to uti­lize this agree­ment for Turo, Inc. and oth­er future Peer-to-Peer Vehi­cle Shar­ing com­pa­nies wish­ing to uti­lize the Air­port.

Mr. James John­son made a motion to Adopt the Peer to Peer Vehi­cle Shar­ing Oper­a­tion Agree­ment – Turo, Inc., and Mr. Les McFat­ter sec­ond­ed the motion. The vote was tak­en and the motion passed unan­i­mous­ly.
