ballard-transit1-215x300The final Ballard Transit Expansion Study Open House is set for this Thursday, December 5 at Ballard High School Commons (1418 NW 65th St). The event will be held from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. and all are welcome to attend.

Staff from Sound Transit and the City of Seattle will be present to hear your comments and answer any questions. Locals are encouraged to attend to give their feedback on the proposed transit options that are being considered for the Ballard area.

This meeting is the final follow up to the initial meetings held in March and June this year to get public feedback on the transit routes, station locations, travel patterns and other issues.

“Five conceptual routes are currently under review as part of the Ballard to downtown High Capacity Transit study, which will help inform updates to the City of Seattle’s Transit Master Plan and Sound Transit’s Long Range Plan. The plans identify priorities for potential future transit expansions,” writes Sound Transit in their press release.

The project team will have detailed maps and information about the five conceptual routes at the meeting and are looking for public feedback.

“Construction of any future transit extensions would be subject to Sound Transit and City policy decisions and identification of funding sources. Voter approval is required for potential Sound Transit investments,” writes Sound Transit.

If you can’t make the meeting and still want to give feedback click here to comment online between December 6 – 13.
