Blogging Hiatus and Who Doesn't Like A Bargain?
Hey everyone- the grey skies are getting to me so I'm getting out of here for a little while. The boss actually signed my vacation slip so there will be a blogging hiatus until Monday, February 15. Don't worry, I'm leaving you with something to keep you busy. We're moving to a new office in a little over a month and need to clean out about 30 years of office supplies. So in my absence, spend a little time perusing these items we have for sale on Craigslist and I'll be back before you know it.
SRTC is the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Spokane County. Urbanized areas with populations exceeding 50,000 people are required to have an MPO. SRTC was formed to address the county's transportation planning needs. It provides coordination in planning between the public, cities, small towns, the county, the state, transit providers, and tribes.
SRTC offers services including transportation monitoring, transportation modeling, census information analysis, travel demand forecasting, historical traffic count analysis, geographic information systems, and trip generation rates.
