Summary NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
Tuesday, June 6, 2023, at approximately 5:15 p.m.
On Tuesday, June 6, 2023, the
City Council will conduct a public hearing on the draft Six-Year Comprehensive Transportation Improvement Program Amended 2023 and 2024-2029.
Section 35.77.010 of the Revised
Code of Washington (RCW) provides that the legislative body of each city and town prepare and adopt a comprehensive transportation program for the ensuing six calendar years and annually thereafter pursuant to one or more public hearings, prepare and adopt a revised and extended comprehensive transportation program, and each one-year extension and revision thereof will be filed with the Secretary of Transportation of the State of Washington. Section 35.77.010 of the RCW further provides that each city will include in their comprehensive transportation program how they intend to expend the revenues for non-motorized transportation purposes. The comprehensive transportation program can be amended at any time with City Council adoption after a public hearing.
The draft program includes road-
ways, bridges, non-motorized facilities, sidewalks and other capital related transportation projects. The draft program is based upon anticipated revenues versus desirable projects. There are always more projects than available revenues.
The City adopted the Transporta-
tion Master Plan (TMP) in December 2015, which includes a prioritized list of transportation projects. The adoption of the TMP included citywide community outreach and two public hearings. The proposed list of projects to be added to the draft program support the goals and policies as well as network priorities outlined in the TMP.
Staff provided a presentation to
the Infrastructure, Planning, and Sustainability Committee on the proposed list of projects to be added to and removed from the draft program on April 12, 2023, a presentation on the full draft program on May 10, 2023, and a presentation on the full draft program to the full City Council at the May 23, 2023 Study Session. Staff also provided a presentation to the Transportation Commission on the proposed list of projects to be added to and removed from the draft program on March 15, 2023 and a presentation on the full draft program on May 17, 2023. The proposed draft is available on the City’s website at:
