Citizens' Transportation Advisory Board

Authorized by and Date: The Citizen’s Transportation Advisory Board is authorized in the Spokane Municipal Code in SMC 04.37 and authorized by Ordinance No. C-34648 on October 11, 2010.

Mission Statement/Purpose: In order assist the Transportation Benefit District (TBD) to fulfill the purpose and goals of state law and Ordinance No. C-34648, the TBD governing board established a Citizen's Transportation Advisory Board (CTAB) as per resolution 2010-0002. The TBD Board recognizes that successful implementation of the City's TBD requires transparency and accountability regarding the revenue generated by the vehicle tab fee as well as the projects on which these funds are spent.

The CTAB is responsible for the review of transportation projects under consideration for TBD funding. More specifically, CTAB volunteers will review projects identified in the City's 2018-2023 Pavement Maintenance Program and the Pedestrian Program of the City's 2018-2023 six-year comprehensive streets program for consistency with the parameters established by Ordinance No. C-34648 and codified in Chapter 8.16 SMC. CTAB members will recommend prioritization and funding of transportation projects in order to ensure that the citizens of Spokane receive full value for their TBD investment.
