Olympia Transportation Workshop – April 13

The City of Olympia is holding it’s 2nd Annual Transportation Workshop in mid-April. While it’s promoted largely whithin city limits, Griffin area residents will want to be heard as the big city folks come together to seek new approaches to meeting the Olympia Comprehensive Plan goals. All of us travel to Olympia, particularly to the congested west side, where congestion on Black Lake and along Henderson is only liable to get worse.

2nd Annual Transportation Workshop
Monday, April 13, 2009
7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
The Olympia Center, Columbia Street & Olympia Avenue

Among the concepts that will be presented are:

  • Primary bus corridors: Work with Intercity Transit to develop streets with high-quality bus services.
  • Connectivity: Continue to develop a gridded street network, as well as bicycle and walking paths.
  • Complete streets: Build streets that support all modes and contribute to a sense of place.
  • Financing: Examine new funding sources for walking, biking, bus and motor-vehicle improvements.

Come share your thoughts. Whether you walk, bike, ride the bus, or drive a motor vehicle, your ideas about the future of transportation in Olympia are sought.
