How We Can Help

The Community Transportation Planning Office (CTPO) works with our partners to improve the coordination of state, regional, and local transportation and land use planning. The Growth Management Act (GMA) and the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) are two important coordination tools.

The WSDOT Community Planning Portal is Open

The WSDOT Community Planning Portal is an online forum for state, regional, and local transportation planners to share transportation and land use data. To learn more about the Portal and how to access it, see the Community Planning Portal Web Page or for printable material open the Community Planning Portal Folio (pdf 2 mb).
