The Skagit-Island Regional Transportation Planning Organization (SIRTPO) is a regional agency that facilitates transportation planning activities in Skagit and Island counties. SIRTPO receives around $230,000 in Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) funding per year to distribute to programs and projects defined as transportation alternatives, including on- and off-road pedestrian and bicycle facilities; recreational trail program projects; and safe routes to school projects.
The SIRTPO Policy Board will be considering draft TAP project selection criteria (see link below) for approval at their April 23rd, 2015 meeting. Around $700,000 will be available for urban and rural alternative transportation projects in Skagit and Island counties.
The public may comment on the draft TAP project selection criteria. Please submit any written comments to Gabe Philips by noon on April 16th, 2015. A public comment period will also be provided at the April 23rd, 2015 meeting but written comments are preferred.
Call (360-416-6678) or email Gabe Philips if you have any questions.
