The program was created by Transportation for America and the Federal Highway Administration. It is designed to provide expert analysis of plans and progress on deploying performance measures.

The training will help build on PSRC’s existing performance measures programs, which include tracking of status of projects receiving PSRC funding, the prioritization of projects within the region’s long-range transportation plan, and trends on the outcomes of the region’s planning policies.

PSRC’s team will include elected leaders from each of the four counties. They are Arlington Councilmember Debora Nelson, Kitsap County Commissioner Rob Gelder, Pierce County Councilmember Derek Young, and a to be determined City of Seattle Councilmember. It will also include three staff people, they are Hester Serebrin from Transportation Choices Coalition and Mary Pat Lawlor and Kimberly Scrivner from PSRC.

The other region’s selected are Boston, MA; Cleveland, OH; Des Moines, IA; Indianapolis, IN; Lee County, FL; and South Bend, IN.
