City Council Agenda
Meeting Date: 05/21/2013  
Subject:    Public Hearing - Revised Six-Year Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) for 2014-2019.
Presenter: Mark Palmer
Department: Public Works  

Information
Recommended Action
Hold a public hearing on the city's Six-Year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for 2014-2019, and thereafter approve a resolution adopting the 2014-2019 TIP.
Background
Pursuant to RCW 35.77.010, the City is required to maintain a perpetual advanced Six-Year Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP). Maintenance of this plan requires that the City conduct an annual review of its Six-Year TIP to assure that it is consistent with the City's Comprehensive Plan and the Transportation Element of the Comprehensive Plan. Prior to taking action to confirm the TIP, state law requires that a public hearing be conducted.

Within 30 days of the City's annual confirmation of its six-year TIP, a copy of the updated TIP must be filed with the Washington State Director of Highways and the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board.

A summary of the TIP accompanies this agenda bill and a copy is available for review at the City Clerk's Office and on the City's website under Services/Development Services/Engineering Services/Traffic Engineering section at http://www.cityofpuyallup.org/services/developmentservices/

Previous Actions (Discussions/Presentations)
The Six-Year TIP is presented to the Council yearly for adoption as required by RCW 35.77.010.
Summary of Proposal
The Six-Year TIP is a planning tool and document which enables the City to apply and be considered for various transportation grants. Failure to adopt an updated plan would limit the City's future eligibility for state and federal grant awards.

Actual authorization for expenditure of funds for arterial street projects will be brought back to Council for approval.
