Mark your calendars because you’re coming to one of my public meetings. We’ve just released our draft 2012-2015 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for public review and comment, and to answer your questions on it, we’re holding a meeting. Yay meetings! That wasn’t sarcastic either. I actually like doing public meetings because it puts me in touch with the folks out there who are interested in transportation issues for our area.
Anyway, back to the TIP; it’s a four-year funding program document that lists transportation improvements proposed by jurisdictions within Spokane County. Each year we publish an updated TIP to let members of the public know what projects are tentatively planned for the next four years, how much each will cost, if any have funds dedicated to them yet and the approximate construction date (although that’s a moving target).
You can review the TIP here. To submit comments on it, either attend the public meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 21 from 4-6 p.m. at SRTC, 221 W. First Ave. or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. The last day to submit comments is Friday, Oct. 7 at 4 p.m.
