IWTP Comments

How to Participate in the  Island-wide Transportation Plan (IWTP) Process

The update of the Plan is being developed by Public Works staff and Engineering Manager Chris Hammer is the designated contact person. Interested parties may contact Chris by phone at 206-780-3740 or submit written comments by email.

The Non-Motorized Transportation Advisory Committee (NMTAC) had been involved in the drafting of the Plan since the effort began in early 2015 and are available to discuss the Plan update with the public.

Planning Commission

The Planning Commission has been involved in developing the Transportation Element of the Comprehensive Plan along with its integration with the IWTP. Public Works staff first presented the draft IWTP to the Planning Commission in the fall of 2015. Planning Commission members are available to discuss with the public the Transportation Element of the Comprehensive Plan which is integral with the IWTP.
