So, I took the liberty of committing you to something next week. We’re hosting a public meeting to introduce people to our 2014-2017 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) so I went ahead and put the event on your calendar.
Why should you care about yet another government document? Because the TIP is a list of the local projects that have received funding lately and are planned for construction or to be implemented within the next four years. It’s your chance to see what’s on the books for the future and express your opinion on whether these are good projects to spend tax money on or if you think there are projects that are more of a priority.
Here’s where you can find the draft TIP to review it. Or you can just come to the public meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 25 from 4-6 p.m. at SRTC, 221 W. First Ave., Suite 310, Spokane, WA 99201. It’s more of an open house, so you can come and go whenever you feel like, no need to stay the whole two hours.
