2016 JBLM/Camp Murray Regional Survey

The South Sound Military & Communities Partnership (SSMCP) conducted a survey hosted by Survey Monkey to Joint Base-Lewis McChord (JBLM) and Camp Murray, email addresses. A wide variety of topics were asked about including housing, education, transition services and perceptions. The primary target audience was Active Duty Service Members and Reservists. Most participants were non-military personnel working on the installation. 



2015 Business and Community Survey

New in 2015, SSMCP is conducting a survey of the citizens and businesses that interact with JBLM to gain a better understanding of those interactions and the attitudes of South Sound residents about military presence in our area.  SSMCP will partner with a consulting firm to gather useful business and community information on interactions with/perceptions of military presence in the South Sound.

July 15, 2015:  Gov. Jay Inslee today signed a bipartisan transportation investment package that will create an estimated 200,000 jobs and address critical safety, maintenance and congestion needs all across Washington.  SSMCP supported the adoption of the transportation package as necessary to preserve the abililty of JBLM to perform its off-base missions while also ensuring the ability of  the region's population to travel.

The 16-year, $16 billion “Connecting Washington” package includes:

  • $8.8 billion for road and safety projects including megaprojects such as SR 520 bridge, the North Spokane Corridor, SR 167/SR 509 Gateway Project, and $494 million for widening of I-5 at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
  • $1.4 billion for highway maintenance and preservation.
  • $1.3 billion for non-highway projects such as bike paths, rail and transit.
  • $602 million for ferries including a fourth Olympic Class Ferry Vessel.
  • Other investments related to fish barrier removal, bridge preservation, freight rail improvements, electric vehicle and alternative fuel tax credits and commute trip reduction programs.

The package also authorizes Sound Transit to seek voter-approval for $15 billion to extend light rail as far north as Everett and as far south as Tacoma.
