Transportation Alternatives Program Project Selection Survey

Skagit-Island Regional Transportation Planning Organization (SIRTPO) would like your input to help guide non-motorized transportation project investments. SIRTPO has around $700,000 in Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) funding to award to eligible projects. These funds can be used for various non-roadway projects such as bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, recreational trails, community improvement activities, and safe routes to school.

SIRTPO will be issuing a call for projects in the coming months to award the TAP funding to eligible projects on a competitive basis. You can provide input to help determine which types of projects should be eligible for the regional funds as well as what factors should be considered when ranking the projects. Please take a few minutes to respond to the survey in the link below. Your input will help the SIRTPO Policy Board determine the best use for these regionally-allocated funds.

The survey will be closed at 5:00 PM on February 13, 2015.
