Full Certifications for Covington, Gig Harbor, North Bend and Snoqualmie Plans

The board recommended that Executive Board fully certify the comprehensive plan updates, as clarified by supporting resolutions, for Covington, Gig Harbor, North Bend, and Snoqualmie. Previously, these cities had produced plans with growth beyond adopted targets. The cities had been conditionally certified earlier this year, which made them eligible for federal transportation funds pending full certification.

City Councils in North Bend, Snoqualmie, Gig Harbor and Covington have now passed resolutions required for full certification. The growth board unanimously recommended full certification for the four plans. View the presentation.

Transportation 2040 Update

The board was briefed on the update to Transportation 2040 plan now underway.  The update will ensure the plan meets mandates and reflects changes in the region since the last plan adoption in 2014.  The updated plan will showcase investments, focus on remaining funding gaps, address new planning requirements, and prepare the region for technology and other changes.
