The Transportation Commission will hold a public hearing April 10 on the city's proposed 2015-2020 Transportation Improvement Program, a kind of wish list of transportation capital programs and projects.
If you are interested in certain transportation projects and think they should be included in the TIP, please attend the hearing -- 6:30 p.m., Thursday, April 10 at City Hall, in Room 1E-113.
The TIP is a draft work plan for needed transportation capital projects and programs for the next six years. Unlike the Capital Investment Program plan and the Transportation Facilities Plan, the TIP is not limited by available funding; therefore, it represents a comprehensive list of all transportation projects the city may choose to implement within this six-year time frame, if funding were available.
The TIP includes road and intersection work, as well as new or enhanced bicycle and pedestrian facilities. If a project is included in the TIP, it is also eligible for state and federal grants. The TIP also serves as a transportation program coordination tool with other agencies and jurisdictions.
This hearing is an opportunity for the Transportation Commission to hear your comments and your opinions on which projects should be implemented if funding becomes available. Following the hearing, the commission will forward a TIP list of recommendations to the City Council.
The council is scheduled to review and approve the plan at their regular session on Monday, May 19, at City Hall. This meeting starts at 8 p.m. and is open to the public.
More information about the TIP, including a list of projects, is available at Transportation Improvement Program or to see a list of projects. For other information about the TIP, please contact Kristi Oosterveen, program administrator, at 425-452-4496 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
