Island Transit will hold two open houses and a public hearing to accept comments on a draft 2018-23 six-year Transit Development Plan.
The plan serves as a guide for Island Transit.
“It helps identify transit service needs, prioritize improvements and determine the resources required for implementing modified or new service,” according to a prepared statement.
“The plan also provides a foundation for requests for state funding and grants, which are an important addition to the local sales tax collected that enables Island Transit to provide bus and van-pool services.”
Island Transit staff will host open houses from 2-6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 1 at the Camano Island Library and noon to 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2 at the Island Transit main offices at 19758 State Highway 20, Coupeville.
A public hearing will be held 9:30 a.m. Friday, Aug. 24 at the Island Transit main offices.
The draft 2018-23 six-year transit development plan is available online on the Island Transit website.
In addition to attending these open house meetings, comments may be sent by mail to the main office at 19758 State Highway 20, Coupeville, WA, 98239, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for comments is Friday, Aug. 24.
