PUBLIC HEARING

 

10.      SIX-YEAR TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT PLAN

 

Staff Report - City Manager Sugg presented a resolution to approve the City’s Six-Year Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) for years 2018-2023.   The proposed amendments primarily involve the removal of three projects to be completed in 2017; addition of a project for construction of a pedestrian and bicycle bridge across Chambers/Leach Creek with connections to the Chambers Creek Trail system; splitting the Chambers Creek Road/Chambers Lane to two projects to increase flexibility for future grant requests; and updating of project costs and project schedules. 

 

The City of University Place is required by State law to adopt and annually update a Six-Year Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP).  The approval of the Six-Year Transportation Improvement Plan does not commit the City to any financial expenditure; rather, each project is reviewed individually by the City Council in each relevant budget cycle as a component of the Capital Improvement Plan.  Its approval, however, does create eligibility for the City to apply for various grant opportunities, and provides an indication of the City’s planning direction for transportation needs.

 

Public Comment – None.

 

Council Consideration MOTION:  By Councilmember Belleci, seconded by Councilmember Grassi, to adopt a resolution approving the Six-Year Transportation Improvement Plan for years 2018-2023.

 

The motion carried.  (RESOLUTION NO. 849)
