The City of Pasco is conducting its first Transportation System Master Plan (TSMP). The TSMP is a guide for future transportation investments to ensure that they align with the community’s goals, values, and vision for the future.
Transportation planning in Washington is required under the Growth Management Act (RCW 36.70A.108) which governs each city’s transportation element of a comprehensive plan. This TSMP will act as a supplement to the transportation element in Pasco’s ongoing comprehensive planning efforts.
The following items will be addressed:
A set of goals, policies, and evaluation criteria that define a vision for a city’s transportation future
An inventory of a city’s existing, multimodal transportation system and how well these systems currently serve users
An assessment of future travel demand and the impact of this growth on the existing transportation system
A review of bicycle and pedestrian needs and opportunities
An understanding of available funding for transportation system improvements
The Plan Process:
The Pasco TSMP documents the operational and safety performance of the City’s existing and future transportation system and provides strategies that will support growth in and around the community through the year 2040.
