SEPT. 3 FRIDAY FORUM REMINDER: Visioning Transportation for the Next 20

King & Pierce County residents, join us this Friday for your ONLY chance to
hear about and weigh-in on Washington Transportation Plan 2030, the state's
20-year comprehensive transportation plan. What's your vision for
transportation across the state over the next 20 years? Washington invests
less than 1% of its transportation resources on public transportation, less
than just about any other urbanized state. Adding highway capacity has been
the state's focus over the last several decades while bicycle and pedestrian
needs continue to be an afterthought on most state projects, undercutting
our state's climate and land use goals. What's on your wish list for
transit, bikes and sidewalks in our region? 

zLhXgCMSk3i> Transportation Plan 2030 (WTP 2030) sets a 20-year course for
Washington State's transportation system. The plan's goal is to highlight
long-term funding shortfalls, service needs, and system-wide mobility and
safety needs, along with recommended solutions and approaches aimed at
moving the state's transportation network into the future. Again, the Sept.
3 Friday Forum will be the only chance for King and Pierce County residents
to hear about the state transportation plan and weigh-in with comments in
person. Please plan on attending before you begin your Labor Day weekend.
WHAT: Washington Transportation Plan 2030 with Transportation Commissioner
Dan O'Neal and Paul Parker, Commission staff lead for WTP 2030.
WHEN: Friday, Sept. 3, 12:00pm - 1:30pm
WHERE:  King County Public Health - Chinook Building, Room 115, 401
DLhXgCMSk3i> Fifth Ave., Seattle (at Jefferson St.)

As always, feel free to bring your lunch.

Co-sponsored by Bicycle Alliance of Washington, Cascade Bicycle Club,
Cascade Land Conservancy, Commute Seattle, Feet First, Futurewise, King
County Conservation Voters, Sierra Club - Cascade Chapter, and Streets for
All Seattle.
