SEATTLE - Community Transit and Snohomish Countyhave won a 2012 VISION 2040 Award from the Puget Sound Regional Council for the Curb the Congestion Program. The awards recognize innovative projects and programs that help ensure a sustainable future as the region grows.
"The Curb the Congestion program is an excellent example of how partnerships are making a difference in the region," said Councilmember Stephanie Wright, Chair of the VISION 2040 Awards Selection Committee. "This program has been producing results since 2008 and is one that can be built on and expanded to keep reducing congestion in key Snohomish County corridors."
VISION 2040 is the region's growth management, economic, and transportation strategy, designed to meet the needs of the 5 million people expected to be living in the region in 2040 (compared to the 3.7 million people living here today). It is an integrated, long-range vision for the future that lays out a strategy for maintaining a healthy region - promoting the well-being of people and communities, economic vitality, and a healthy environment.
