Transportation Master Plan

The Redmond Transportation Master Plan (TMP) is an element of the City's Comprehensive Plan, and is the document that guides Redmond’s transportation policies and funding priorities. It was first adopted in 2005. Now, seven years later, the TMP is due for an update. This 2013 update was developed using a strategic framework that incorporates the City's vision, feedback from the community, and an analysis of the challenges and opportunities facing Redmond. Below you will find more information about the five TMP strategies along with links to the draft document
