Issaquah city staff and officials have held the first two of four open house meetings aimed at gauging public opinion on how to spend the extra money from the ITS project.
The Intelligent Transportation Project, a traffic signal system that monitors the flow of traffic in the city, was funded by a voter approved bond in Nov. 2005 for $3.6 million. The city was awarded some grant money, which reduced the overall cost by $1.9 million.
The public is invited to voice their opinion on how the “extra” money should be spent.
The open houses feature video of the ITS program in action as well as posters, surveys and city workers available to answer any questions.
Anyone interested in learning more is invited to attend one of the remaining open houses, which will be from 6 to 8 p.m. on Sept. 18 and Oct. 2 at the Council Chambers in City Hall South, 135 East Sunset Way.
