2021 Legislative Debrief

We will welcome Washington State Representatives Jake Fey and Emily Wicks to the Transportation Policy Board this week for a debrief on the results of the 2021 Legislative session. Numerous bills related to transportation activities were passed in the most recent session, including appropriations for the state 2021- 2023 biennial transportation budget and groundbreaking legislation with direct ties to PSRC’s planning efforts – including climate change and housing initiatives. Tune into our webstream on Thursday at 9:30 am to find out more.

Regional Aviation Baseline Study completion

cover

Great news! The Regional Aviation Baseline Study is now available. The study provides a foundation for regional decision makers as they consider if the region should accommodate the growing demand for aviation, and how to do so. The study projects demand for air travel in the region will double and result in a projected regional gap in service by 2050 that is roughly equivalent to all the passengers served at Sea-Tac in 2019. Demand at Sea-Tac is already ramping back up as things reopen.

Transit-Oriented Development Committee seeks new members

We are relaunching the Regional Transit-Oriented Development Committee to advise the Growth Management Policy Board on local efforts to develop equitable communities around major transit investments. Applications are due by July 16.

Updated Plan Review Manual now available

PSRC has worked with local planning staff to update the Plan Review Manual to reflect new and updated regional policy direction in VISION 2050. Find out more at a webinar on Wednesday, June 30 from 1-2pm. Staff will answer questions and share available resources to support local planning.

Region home to many residents with Asian American Pacific Islander heritage

In celebration of Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month in May, PSRC explored how AAPI populations have grown in the region. Find out more about how people within this broad, encompassing group identify themselves and where they live around the region.

I welcome your feedback on our work at PSRC. You can reach me at jbrown@psrc.org. Stay well!
