Sync – System Improvement Team

The system improvement team was created by the Legislature in HB 1677 to “identify, implement, and report on improvements” to the state’s infrastructure system. Sync finds infrastructure adds value to planet, people and economic vitality. Unfortunately, core infrastructure investments in water, sewer, and multi-modal transportation have not kept pace with community needs. The Public Works Board along with the departments of Commerce, Ecology and Health, the Transportation Improvement Board, and the Washington State Department of Transportation are synchronizing their efforts to create a more efficient structure for infrastructure financing, and to support communities that are living in legacy utilities at end of useful life.

Next Work Session:
Thursday, February 6, 2020

Sync is beginning its third year of infrastructure system improvements. The next Sync meeting is Thursday, February 6, 2020, with public hours from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm, at the Department of Commerce in Olympia, Washington. If you would like to participate please contact Buck Lucas, the Sync Project Manager, at Buck.Lucas@commerce.wa.gov to request a parking permit. Make sure to display the permit on your dash, and park in the Long Term Visitor Parking Lot.
