Policymakers and leaders in Washington State face challenges meeting sustainability goals while simultaneously trying to increase mobility, accessibility, and livability in our region. These challenges include facets of engineering, planning, and politics.
Major funding packages at the state level and regional levels have recently been passed in the form of this year’s Washington State transportation package and Sound Transit 3 in 2016. Leaders are now tasked with completing these projects on-time and under-budget, which is made difficult by rising construction costs and increasingly-complex project delivery.
At the same time, county and city leaders are aiming to meet aggressive sustainability targets through policies that encourage density and alternative transportation modes such as transit and bicycling. These sustainability targets must be balanced with goals such as regional economic development.
Please join us in welcoming Sound Transit CEO Peter Rogoff, King County Executive Dow Constantine, Senator Steve Hobbs, and King County Councilmember Claudia Balducci for an evening of discussion regarding crafting sustainable plans, developing the policies to support them, and delivering new transportation infrastructure.
