NOTICE OF GENERAL PUBLIC HEARING
Adoption of Six-Year Transportation Improvement Program
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a public hearing will be held by the Franklin County Board of Commissioners on Wednesday, June 29, 2016 at 9:00 am., or as soon thereafter as possible, at the County Commissioners Chambers at the Franklin County Courthouse, 1016 North Fourth Avenue, Pasco, Washington.
The purpose of the public hearing is to review the proposed Transportation Improvement Program for Franklin County for the 2017-2022 period. As part of the Federal Highway Administration’s allocation of funding, each state is required to submit a six-year Statewide Transportation Improvement Plan (STIP). The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) compiles its plan from the regional Transportation Improvement Plans submitted by the local jurisdictions.
The Franklin County Transportation Improvement Plan for 2017-2022 covers the anticipated projects for the next six years, regardless of funding source. The first four years of the plan are fiscally constrained. Per Section 36.81.121 RCW, the Board of Franklin County Commissioners will hold a public meeting to consider the proposed Transportation Improvement Plan and hear testimony in favor of or in opposition to its adoption.
A Spanish interpreter will be available. The Commissioners’ Chambers are handicap accessible. Arrangements to reasonably accommodate special needs, including handicap accessibility or interpreter, will be made upon receiving 24-hour advance notice. Please contact the Commissioners’ Office at (509) 545-3535.
