PSRC Operations During COVID-19

During the pandemic, PSRC pivoted to virtual-only meetings to protect the public from the spread of COVID-19.  PSRC is now using a variety of technologies to help the public stay involved and provide comment to boards.  We are also reopening our offices during board meetings to allow in-person viewing and comment.  Please see the information below to learn how to engage, comment and observe meetings.
