How are TBDs created?

Any city or county may form a TBD by passing an ordinance, after holding a public hearing, if the city or county finds that the action is in the public interest (RCW 36.73.050). The ordinance must define the geographic area the TBD covers and the transportation benefits to be funded. A TBD may include part or all of the establishing jurisdiction.
