Mukilteo has recently engaged in drafting the By The Way Plan (BTW) to support opportunities for Biking, Transit, and Walking within our community. Currently over half of the population of Mukilteo live within 1/4 mile distance from bus stops, but we still prefer to drive. The BTW Plan will identify barriers that impede the accessibility of utilizing transit as well as improving our walking and biking routes for all ages, populations, and abilities.
Mukilteo strives to be a City with a complete and efficient network of safe, healthy, convenient, and enjoyable transportation options that provide equitable connectivity to pedestrians, transit users, cyclists, and motorists to and from the neighborhoods where they live, work, and play. Vision Statement
To make the vision statement a reality for Mukilteo, the follow policies will be utilized to assist in the decision making process.
The public right-of-way shall incorporate a “Complete Streets” policy that simultaneously serves people and commerce.
The transportation network shall accommodate all ages, populations, and abilities.
Projects that enhance connectivity shall be the first priority.
The City’s street standards shall be “Green Streets” requiring a range of low impact and environmentally friendly practices.
2015 Comprehensive Policies:
TR6: Standards for streets, appropriate for each street classification, that specify the design of street facilities shall be adopted. The standards should include minimum provisions for pedestrian-oriented streetscape elements and bicycle facilities.
Pedestrian Mobility & Bicycle Infrastructure:
TR9: Pedestrian and bicycle facilities, streetscape standards, and traffic calming methods should be installed to improve connectivity between parks, retail centers, schools, and regional transportation nodes and to promote a pedestrian and bicycle friendly environment.
TR10: Bicycle facilities shall be an integral part of the City’s transportation system.
Transportation Demand Management:
TR11: The City shall participate in regional transportation planning and programming efforts designed to improve the efficiency of ferry service, encourage use of transit and other alternate modes of transportation, and encourage transportation demand management (TDM).
The By The Way Plan planning process is still in the preliminary stages with more information planned starting July 1, 2015. For more information please contact Patricia Love
