    • Abstract:
      In 1990 the Washington State Legislature passed the Growth Management Act (GMA). When enacted, the GMA did not address a number of transportation related issues for a variety of reasons. During the 1998 session the Washington State Legislature passed HB 1487, relating to transportation and growth management planning in Washington. House Bill 1487, also been known as the "Level of Service Bill", was passed to enhance the identification and coordinated planning for major transportation facilities identified as "transportation facilities and services of statewide significance" (RCW 47.06.140). In summary, the new legislation creates a strong tie between the local transportation plan requirements under the GMA and the state's enhanced role in the RTPO process for designating level of service on state-owned facilities, and recognizes the importance of certain facilities as being of statewide significance. This includes provisions for consistency with Washington's Transportation Plan, the regional plans, related (local, regional, and state) financial plans, and funding priorities for transportation facilities and services of statewide significance, as identified by the Transportation Commission. The approach for guidance includes a description of the legislation's background and requirements, recommendations for implementing them, and identification of implementation resources and assistance. Another component of this approach is the development of a coordinated statewide transportation planning process that includes affected stakeholders. This guidance is not designed to answer all questions, rather, it addresses the key components and basic requirements of the legislation and makes suggestions on how to approach what needs to be done at the local level. Three appendices, 59p.
