City holding hearing on Transportation Improvement Program June 2
The City of Burien will be holding a public hearing on its 6-year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) at the June 2 City Council meeting, starting at 7 p.m. in the City Council chambers at City Hall.
The TIP includes a list of potential future local road projects.
Here’s more from the program (download PDF here):
The Six-Year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a short-range planning document that is annually updated based on needs and policies identified through a variety of sources. Project and financial development involve interactions with many groups and agencies at the local, regional, state, and federal levels. It represents Burien’s current list of needed projects that may begin work in the next six years.
The primary importance of the Six Year TIP is to act as a planning tool for the development of transportation facilities within the City. It is used to coordinate transportation projects with our utility districts and other agencies. Staff has evaluated last year’s TIP with respect to the new Transportation Master Plan to ensure that the new TIP is coordinated with the TMP’s goals and the multimodal layered network concept.
In most cases, local projects must be included in the TIP to be eligible for state and federal grant programs.
