PUGET SOUND REGIONAL COUNCIL
Puget Sound Regional Council’s (PSRC) mission is to effectively plan for regional transportation, growth management and economic development. Through PSRC, central Puget Sound counties (King, Pierce, Snohomish and Kitsap), cities and towns, ports, tribes, transit agencies, and the state work together to develop policies and make decisions about regional issues. PSRC works with local government, business and citizens to build a common vision for the region’s future, expressed through three connected major activities: VISION 2040, the region’s growth strategy; Transportation 2040, the region’s long-range transportation plan; and the Regional Economic Strategy, the region’s blueprint for long-term prosperity. PSRC is governed by a General Assembly and an Executive Board. Each member of PSRC is a voting member of the General Assembly, which meets at least annually to vote on major decisions, establish the budget, and elect new officers. The Executive Board is chaired by the PSRC President, meets monthly, and serves as the governing board. Both the General Assembly and Executive Board use weighted votes based on population to make decisions.
Snohomish County Cities is tasked with providing elected officials from our member cities to represent Snohomish County on all PSRC Committees. At each January membership meeting, candidates are voted upon and assigned. Each Committee has a primary representative, a first alternate and second alternate assigned. The responsibilities of each representative can be found here. document coming soon
A description of each of the committees may be found on that committees page on the menu at the left or you can visit the PSRC website.
