For the next month, Sound Transit will be collecting public feedback on West Seattle and Ballard light rail extension options.
Sound Transit will host three upcoming information sessions, one of which is in Ballard on Feb. 28 from 6 to 8:30pm at the Ballard High School (1418 NW 65th St). Other sessions will be held in West Seattle on Feb. 27, and in downtown Seattle on March 7 — click here for details.
The open houses will allow attendees to provide feedback on various light rail alternatives. The feedback from open houses will be shared with the Stakeholder Advisory Group and Elected Leadership Group. In May, the Sound Transit Board of Directors will identify a preferred alternative plus additional alternatives to study for the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
If you can’t make it to an open house, you’ll still be able to comment online, via email, regular mail, or voicemail. Sound Transit says they’ll use also use submitted comments to help inform which alternatives should be studied in the EIS, which is the next phase of the project.
Comments can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mailed to Sound Transit, Lauren Swift, Central Corridor Environmental Manager, 401 S. Jackson Street, Seattle, WA 98104. To phone in a comment, call (833) 972-2666.
