The City of Spokane is looking to fill a vacant spot on the Citizens’s Transportation Advisory Board (CTAB), a group that helps determine priorities for Transportation Benefit District funding.
The 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 pays for street maintenance and pedestrian improvements outlined in the City’s Six-Year Pavement Maintenance Program. The fee raises about $2.6 million annually.
The CTAB includes 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).
