TBD Board Needs Applicants

Interested in helping maintain the City’s streets and sidewalks? A reminder that 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.

Money raised through a $20 vehicle registration fee, 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. Application forms are available here.
