TBD Projects

Transportation Benefit District

The Transportation Benefit District (TBD) is a quasi-municipal corporation and independent taxing district created for the sole purpose of acquiring, constructing, improving, providing, and funding transportation improvements within a City or district. The City of Sequim established the Sequim TBD in 2008. In July 2009, the voters approved funding for TBD projects for a period of ten years by way of an increase in sales tax (.2%). The TBD is a separate entity from the City and an organizational structure was established, policies adopted, and projects identified. The types of TBD projects include:

  • Annual Safety Maintenance and Operations: Pavement markings, crosswalk striping, sidewalk repair, sign maintenance and signal operation and maintenance, street lighting operation and maintenance, and vegetation control.
  • Road Preservation: Pavement overlays, crack sealing, shoulder maintenance, drainage and storm sewer maintenance.
  • Road Improvement Projects: New construction associated with capacity and safety improvements, including, but not limited to widening, channelization, sidewalk installation, signalization and drainage improvements.
