This is interesting- apparently the smart growth organizations Futurewise and Transportation Choices Coalition are fed up with our transportation situation and teaming up to do something about it.

A news release from the two organizations put out this morning said that Washington State faces a transportation crisis: structurally deficient bridges, congested roads, inadequate transit choices, too much toxic runoff and global warming pollution, and not enough money to fix the problems.

That’s why they created the “Transportation for Washington” campaign to achieve real reform with new policies and funding. This Wednesday, the groups say they will announce a growing list of public officials in Spokane County who endorse the campaign’s core principles of fixing what’s broken, expanding transit, and building great, healthy communities.

I’ll follow up on this and let you know that day who those officials are.
