Redmond, WA
  —The City of Redmond is seeking feedback on its draft Transportation Master Plan (TMP), the document that will guide citywide transportation investments and policies. Members of the public are invited to visit www.redmond.gov/TMP to review the plan, submit comments, and take a short online survey which will remain open until April 24th.

The Redmond Planning Commission is also inviting public comment on the TMP at two public hearings, that will take place in City Council Chambers on Wednesday, April 10th at 8:00 PM and Wednesday, April 24th at 7:00 PM at Redmond City Hall, 15670 NE 85th St. Comments will inform the final round of revisions to the TMP before it is adopted by the City Council in summer 2013.

The Transportation Master Plan is a component of the Redmond’s Comprehensive Plan, and it guides how the City balances transportation priorities and delivers transportation infrastructure and services. The TMP also provides a specific list of projects and programs that will be implemented over the next 18 years, including investments such as new trails, crosswalks, and intersection improvements.

“This is a great chance for the public to help shape the future of transportation in Redmond,” said Don Cairns, Transportation Planning and Engineering Manager for the City of Redmond. “We want to know: Will this update give you the travel choices you want? How well does it respond to the challenges and opportunities facing Redmond today?”

Following the Redmond Planning Commission’s review of the draft TMP update in April, staff will make final revisions and submit the plan to the City Council in May. Final adoption is scheduled to take place this summer. To receive updates as the TMP adoption process proceeds, members of the public can visit www.redmond.gov/TMP and follow the instructions under the right-hand side of the page under “Stay Informed.”
