Special Needs Transportation Committee

The Skagit Needs Transportation Committee is an ad hoc (temporary) committee created by SCOG’s Transportation Policy Board.  The committee is advising the Transportation Policy Board on a process to prioritize special needs transportation projects around Skagit County.  Letter grades will be assigned to projects, indicating regional priority, and provided to the Washington State Department of Transportation for consideration in a statewide grant program.

Member organizations that volunteered to serve on the committee and were approved by the Transportation Policy Board are:

The prioritization process will conclude in December 2016/January 2017 with a prioritized list of human services transportation projects for Skagit County.

If you have any questions about the prioritization process, contact Mark Hamilton at markh@scog.net or (360) 416-7876.

    I have heard that you are doing special needs transportation planning. I work for the North Sound Mental Health Administration and we contract for and oversee public mental health services for Island, Skagit as well as San Juan, Snohomish and Whatcom Counties.

    The is a need for transportation form Whidbey General Hospital ED to our Mental Health Crisis Center in Burlington/Mt. Vernon a few times a month. Please consider this in your planning. Jackie Henderson at Island County Human Services is also interested in this issue.
