Back in October 2017, we met with community members to discuss potential plans for improving reliability on Bainbridge Island. We began a needs study early this year to discover what technical issues we need to solve. Following that, we will develop an alternatives study to analyze various options to solve the identified issues.

We are making good progress and intend to have our final draft ready this summer. We will convene another community touchpoint in the fall.
