TBD Projects

Transportation Benefit District

 

The Transportation Benefit District (TBD) is a quasi-municipal corporation and independent taxing district created for the sole purpose of acquiring, constructing, improving, providing, and funding transportation improvements within a City or district. The City of Sequim established the Sequim TBD in 2008. In July 2009, the voters approved funding for TBD projects for a period of ten years by way of an increase in sales tax (.2%). The TBD is a separate entity from the City and an organizational structure was established, policies adopted, and projects identified. The types of TBD projects include:

 

  • Annual Safety Maintenance and Operations: Pavement markings, crosswalk striping, sidewalk repair, sign maintenance and signal operation and maintenance, street lighting operation and maintenance, and vegetation control.
  • Road Preservation: Pavement overlays, crack sealing, shoulder maintenance, drainage and storm sewer maintenance.
  • Road Improvement Projects: New construction associated with capacity and safety improvements, including, but not limited to widening, channelization, sidewalk installation, signalization and drainage improvements.

Following are some of the TBD projects that have been completed since 2011:
