The City of Redmond invites the community to “Redmond Transportation 2030,” a first look at the draft list of future transportation projects and programs coming from the yearlong public process to update the city’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP).

The Nov. 17 meeting will be from 6 to 8 p.m. at Redmond City Hall, 15670 N.E. 85th St and participants will have the opportunity to review and comment on the draft plan as well as on other Redmond TMP update results.

The TMP update process began in November 2010 and concludes in early 2012 with a final plan establishing how the major modes of transportation — bicycling, walking, transit and driving — will work together in coming years to provide safe and sustainable mobility. The meeting on Nov. 17 is the third and final community event, and a culmination of a year’s collaboration among city staff and members of the public.

“We encourage everyone who cares about how they get around in Redmond to come and share their thoughts,” said City of Redmond transportation services manager Don Cairns. “Tell us, does this plan meet our goal of providing, safe, reliable, and environmentally sound travel? Have we missed anything? What could we be doing better?”

Reservations for the meeting are encouraged, but not required and should be sent to Patrick McGrath at or by calling (425) 556-2870.

Anyone unable to attend the meeting can send their opinions and comments to Lei Wu, project manager for the TMP update, at
