McClure Elementary School Vicinity Safety Improvements Funding for the remainder of the projects will continue to be sought.A Public Hearing will be held to consider adoption of a Resolution approving the six-year TIP and amending the regional Metropolitan Transportation Plan and Comprehensive Plan Capital Facilities Element. Projects must be listed in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STI P) in order to be approved by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit 2 Administration (FTA) to utilize federal funds by the State of Washington for approved State funding agencies. The STI P is a prioritized program of transportation projects, compiled from local and regional plans, along with the Washington Transportation System Plan (WTP),which provides a backbone for developing projects for the intermodal transportation network in the State of Washington. The STI P contains federally funded projects plus state and local projects that are regionally significant. These projects have been identified through the planning process as the highest priority for the available funding to the state's transportation program. Project ranking has been performed utilizing data supplied by the Street and Traffic Division. The ranking will be integrated with other project needs and the total list will be reviewed and adjusted to the particular need of the City of Yakima. The City needs to amend the Yakima Urban Area Comprehensive Plan Capital Facilities Element to incorporate the adopted six-year TIP for 2020to 2025. This will ensure that we are in compliance with the Growth Management Act and that we are consistent with the Comprehensive Plan as required. The amendment is limited to incorporate only those projects that are adopted in the STI P and is not subject to the "once a year" change required under the laws of the Growth Management Act.
