Notice of Public Comment Period and Determination of Nonsignificance for Skagit 2040 Regional Transportation Plan

Notice is hereby given that on January 20, 2016 the Skagit Council of Governments (SCOG) released the Skagit 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (Plan) for public comment. SCOG, as the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) lead agency for this nonproject action, has determined it will not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment and has therefore issued a Determination of Nonsignificance (DNS) for the Plan pursuant to Chapter 197-11 of the Washington Administrative Code. The DNS was made after a review of the SEPA Environmental Checklist for the Plan along with other information on file with SCOG.

Comments on the Plan or the DNS may be mailed to Skagit Council of Governments, c/o Mark Hamilton, 204 West Montgomery Street, Mount Vernon, WA 98273 or emailed to markh@scog.net. Comments on the Plan or the DNS must be submitted in writing and received by SCOG no later than February 8, 2016. All timely comments on the PlanĀ or the DNS will be considered.

    We seem to be spending a lot of money on bike lanes that are rarely used. Do we have any data on how many bikes/day use the lanes on the LaVenture-Anderson connection? I would also be interested in data on the cost per actual passenger mile of the Skat system. I didn’t see that information published in the plan. A third piece of data I would like is the “carbon footprint” per passenger mile of the Skat system. I believe this information would be necessary to build a proper plan. Thank you.
