Interested in helping maintain the City’s streets and sidewalks? The City of Spokane’s Transportation Benefit District (TBD) Board is seeking applicants for a citizen advisory board to help determine priorities for TBD funding.
Spokane’s Transportation Benefit District is an independent taxing district created to help the City better maintain its street system and pedestrian infrastructure. The Spokane City Council serves as the TBD governing board separately from their Council duties.
Money raised through a $20 vehicle registration fee, which will be collected starting in September, will pay for street maintenance and pedestrian improvements outlined in the City’s Six-Year Pavement Maintenance Program. The fee will raise about $2.6 million annually.
The Citizen’s Transportation Advisory Board (CTAB) will assist in this work. The board will include seven members—one member from each of the City’s three City Council Districts, one at-large member, and one member from each of the following committees:
• The Citizens Street Advisory Committee (CSAC), which oversees spending of the funds generated by the 2004 10-Year Street Bond.
• The Pedestrian, Traffic & Transportation (PETT) Committee of the Community Assembly.
• The Bicycle Advisory Board (BAB).
Members from the three committees will be appointed to one-year terms, while the remaining CTAB members will serve three-year terms.
Application forms are available online here. They’re due by Monday, June 27.
