Celebrating regional collaboration and leadership

We had a great turnout for PSRC’s General Assembly meeting.  Thank you to everyone who attended. The General Assembly unanimously elected Pierce County Executive Bruce Dammeier as President and King County Councilmember Claudia Balducci as Vice President and voted to approve PSRC’s two-year budget and work program.

 

LEGO display and crowd
A fun part of the meeting was a regional map display with LEGOs showing where current and future population and jobs would be located under a potential VISION 2050 growth strategy.

 

 

Dave Somers and Bruce Dammeier

Executive Bruce Dammeier presented a plaque to outgoing President Dave Somers honoring him for his dedicated leadership and commitment to high standards of public service.

Tacoma Councilmember Ryan Mello and Redmond Councilmember Hank Margeson led an interactive polling exercise and provided an update on the development of the VISION 2050 plan.

What do people think about autonomous vehicles?

As transportation technology evolves, it’s important to understand how technologies will affect transportation behavior. In PSRC’s 2017 Travel Survey we asked several questions related to autonomous vehicles. One finding was that younger people are more attracted to AVs than older people. As AVs become more of a reality in the future, attitudes could change rapidly. The Puget Sound household travel surveys will help us track these changes over time. The 2019 travel survey is underway now.

 

VISION 2050 taking shape

The Growth Management Policy Board is putting in extra time this month on VISION 2050. A draft plan will be released for public review in July. Last week the board had an extended meeting, which included robust discussion to shape a preferred regional growth strategy that will guide expected growth through 2050. The board will hold another session this week continuing that work. You can find the agenda here or watch online on June 13, 1-3 p.m.
