Now’s your chance to speak up about Seattle’s transportation system!

 
 

Citizens Transportation Advisory Committee members host a roundtable to discuss public health, mobility issues and Seattle’s transportation system.

 

Everybody has an opinion about transportation.  What’s yours?  Now’s your chance to be heard!  For details, please see our website.

Last fall, the City Council adopted Resolution Number 31240 which states the City’s intent to convene a Citizens Transportation Advisory Committee (CTAC) III to advise the Mayor and City Council on transportation funding alternatives and priorities. The 14-member CTAC III was appointed by the Mayor and Council and is hard at work developing recommendations for new approaches to funding improvements to Seattle’s transportation system.

Key to the process is guidance from the city’s engaged stakeholder communities. The goal is to develop a framework and shared vision of what is necessary to address the city’s commitment to affordable, safe and efficient movement for people, goods and services.

The first task of CTAC III was development of a proposed project list and spending plan for anticipated revenues generated by the $20 annual vehicle license fee (VLF) through the Seattle Transportation Benefit District (STBD).

Next, the CTAC III undertook a full review of the city’s transportation funding system. The committee is evaluating and examining the potential for a ballot measure asking Seattle voters to fund additional transportation projects.  While all the committee’s meetings are open to the public, interested citizens who wish to be involved in the decision-making process are encouraged to attend a workshop next week.

Another way to participate, if you haven’t already, is to submit your comments or take the online survey.
