Amendment Would Put Money Toward Planning Efforts

As we do sometimes, we're proposing another update to the 2014-2017 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), and we'd like your thoughts on it. The TIP is a programming document that identifies projects proposed to be undertaken or constructed during the next four years. The TIP includes project names and descriptions, the jurisdiction sponsoring them, funding attached to each project, and where the funding came from (local, state or federal funds).

 The latest proposed amendment would add a new planning project to the TIP to implement SRTC’s long-range plan, Horizon 2040. Details for the project can be found here.
 
After you take a look, let us know if this is an acceptable use of funds or any other thoughts you may have on it. All comments must be received by 4 p.m. on March 7, 2014. You can submit them by emailing to contact.srtc@srtc.org, mailing to SRTC at 221 W. First Ave., Suite 310, Spokane, WA, or by calling (509) 343-6370.
