Transportation Policy Board Members

In 1990, the Washington State Legislature passed the Growth Management Act (ESHB 2929) authorizing the Regional Transportation Planning Program. This program allows for the formation of Regional Transportation Planning Organizations. Asotin, Columbia, Garfield and Whitman Counties agreed to form a combined RTPO. The primary functions of RTPOs are to develop regional plans and policies for transportation, growth management, environmental quality, and other topics determined by the RTPO; provide data and analysis to support local and regional decision making; build community consensus on regional issues through information and citizen involvement; build inter governmental consensus on regional plans, policies and issues, and advocate local implementation; and provide planning and technical services on a contractual basis.
