Sound Transit asking residents to weigh in on Ballard transit options

Posted by Meghan Walker on October 29th, 2013

Sound Transit has developed an online survey to find out what residents want for the future of transit in and out of Ballard. The Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) is designed to update Sound Transit’s Long-Range Plan (LRP) to identify public priorities for future services and destinations after currently funded projects are complete in 2023.

From Sound Transit:

The Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) process getting underway to update the LRP will provide the vision for transit expansions many years into the future, and future ballot measures will be shaped by the updated LRP. Our region’s population will grow by approximately 30 percent by 2035, according to projections. The Supplemental EIS process will revisit regional transit priorities and explore how we can prepare to serve more riders. “Scoping” is the first step for that environmental process, and helps define the elements (or scope of study) that will be analyzed in the months ahead.

The results of the survey will be presented to the Sound Transit Board of Directors and a project team. The questionnaire is open until Nov. 25. Click here to take part in the survey.
