3 Project Goal and Objectives The goal of the project is to enhance public safety by improving local government land use planning and permitting practices in the vicinity of transmission pipelines. The objectives that will help meet this goal are: – Increase local government and developer awareness of safety concerns as lands in the vicinity of transmission pipelines are developed – Provide direct technical assistance to local governments in implementing Recommended Practices as far in advance of these lands being developed as possible – Establish a structure that fosters long-term collaboration and cooperation between Washington’s local governments, pipeline operators, developers, and other affected groups in promoting pipeline safety and resolving issues that may arise in the implementation of these Recommended Practices.
