The state Transportation Commission is offering people a chance to discuss transportation issues without sitting through boring public meetings and only getting three minutes to speak.
On Thursday it launched the Voice of Washington State, a public engagement program that includes seven regional discussion forums and an online survey panel. Kitsap is in the Central Sound discussion forum with King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. You can sign up for any or all of the forums. There, you can voice your opinions, post ideas and interact with other citizens.
You can also join the survey panel to participate in occasional online surveys on transportation policy, funding and tax issues.
The Transportation Commission will use the information when developing the state’s transportation plan. It also is responsible for establishing bridge tolls and ferry fares.
