Pierce Transit’s State Environmental Protection Act Procedures and Policies

PIERCE TRANSIT

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

PROPOSED SEPA POLICY

Pierce Transit’s draft edition of the agencies State Environmental Protection Act Procedures and Policies has been filed with the Clerk of the Board. A copy of the proposed policy has been posted on the Agency’s website at www.piercetransit.org/documents.

A public hearing will be held as part of the Board of Commissioners meeting on Monday, November 9, 2020.  The meeting begins at 4:00 p.m. and is scheduled to be held virtually.  Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the Governor Proclamation 20-28 that is in effect, a physical meeting location will not be provided for this meeting. Citizens may attend the meeting by Zoom. To join from a computer, please visit https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84016560149. To attend by phone, call 1-253-215-8782 or

1-346-248-7799 and enter Webinar ID code 840 1656 0149.

Written comments should be submitted to Duane Wakan, Senior Planner, 3701 96th Street SW, Lakewood, WA 98499, no later than December 10, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. PST. Adoption of the proposed SEPA Policy is expected to occur at the December 14, 2020 Pierce Transit Board Meeting.

Pierce Transit recognizes that each person has a fundamental and inalienable right to a healthful environment and that each person has a responsibility to contribute to the preservation and enhancement of the environment. Pierce Transit pursuant to the State Environmental Policy Act ("ACT"), RCW 43.21C.120, and chapter 197-11 of the Washington Administrative Code ("CODE"), must provide policies and procedures in compliance with and consistent with the ACT and the state-wide rules set forth in the Code. Because State Environmental policies and procedures were last updated in November 1984, it is time to refresh said policies that reflect current staffing and assignments as well as outline procedures that allow for public input into the SEPA process. 

American Disability Act (ADA) accommodations are available with a 72-hour notice.  Please contact the Clerk’s office at (253) 581-8066 for special accommodations. 

Deanne Jacobson

Clerk of the Board

Trip Planner Help

Trip Planner Tips - Entering Locations

To create a trip plan you need to enter both a starting location (origin) and an ending location (destination). For information about stops, schedules, or service at a specific location, you only need to enter one location.

The Trip Planner recognizes most street intersections and addresses as well as many landmarks in Pierce, King, and Snohomish Counties. If what you entered is not immediately recognized, the Trip Planner will offer you a list of options. You can choose one of the options, but if your intended location is not there, select the "Revise Original Entries" link to return to the entry page and change the entries you have already made.

Addresses

  • You don't need to type in the city along with the address. The Trip Planner shows the possible city names as options if needed. City names are based on zip codes.
  • You don't need to type in St., Street, Ave., or Avenue, or similar street types. The Trip Planner shows the possible alternatives as options if needed. (Example: type 110 Jones instead of 110 Jones Boulevard.)
  • You don't need to type in the directional designations for streets, but if a direction name is part of a street name, you should include it. (Example: type 1000 Main instead of 1000 S Main. But type 1000 West Viewmont for 1000 West Viewmont Way W.)
  • Some streets and addresses are unknown to the Trip Planner. You may need to enter another nearby location, such as an intersection or a landmark.
  • You should not enter the suite number or apartment number.  Just the house number and street name (Example: type in 401 Broadway instead of 401 Broadway Avenue Suite 800).

Intersections

  • The "&" symbol is the only character used between two street names to show an intersection. (Examples: 1st & B, James & Madison)
  • You don't need to type in the city. The Trip Planner shows the possible city names as options if needed. City names are based on zip codes.
  • You don't need to type in St., Street, Ave., or Avenue, or similar street types. The Trip Planner shows the possible alternatives as options if needed. (Example: type Conifer & Jones instead of Conifer Circle & Jones Boulevard.)
  • You don't need to type in the directional designations for streets, but if a direction name is part of a street name, you should include it. (Example: type 3rd & Main instead of 3rd S & S Main. But type 34th & West Viewmont for 34th W & West Viewmont Way W.)
  • Some streets are unknown to the Trip Planner. You may need to enter another nearby intersection or a landmark.
