Transportation Benefit District

The Transportation Benefit District (TBD) is a City of Walla Walla transportation improvement program established in 2012 by a voter-approved 0.2% sales tax increase. This 10-year program raises $1 million to $1.2 million per year. Transportation Benefit Districts are governed by the rules established in RCW 36.73. By law, funds collected by a Transportation District may only be used on transportation-improvement projects.

In 2011, the City asked residents which roadways they felt are the top priorities for repair. We used the results of this survey to help us decide which projects to upgrade over the life of the initial 10-year TBD.

TBD projects partner with State grants to maximize City improvements. As of 2019, we have secured over $20 million of outside grant support. We continue to look for funding opportunities to make the most of this sales tax revenue.

Completed IRRP Projects 2010 - 2018

 

Infrastructure Repair and Replacement Plan (IRRP)

The Infrastructure Repair and Replacement Plan (IRRP) is a program established by City Council in April 2010 to provide a systematic approach to replace the City's three failing critical infrastructure systems: water, sewer, and streets.

  • Of the 115 miles of failing infrastructure systems in the City, there are approximately 43 miles where the water, sewer, and streets are failing in the same locations. The IRRP is focused on the replacements and upgrades in these areas.
  • As of December 2018, the IRRP had completed 19 projects that have cumulatively replaced 8.3 miles of the 43 total miles of failing infrastructure.
  • This program is funded by a six-year stepped utility rate increase.
