Long-Range Plan Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement
On June 13, 2014, Sound Transit released the Long-Range Plan Update Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (Draft SEIS) for public comment in accordance with the Washington State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA). Analysis and public feedback will help the Sound Transit Board determine how the agency's Long-Range Plan should be updated. In addition, it may also help inform the Board where mass transit should expand after the current set of projects are complete in 2023, funding for which was approved by voters in 2008.
The comment period on the Draft SEIS concluded on July 28, 2014. Comments provided on the DSEIS this summer will help the Sound Transit Board identify future transit expansions after the light rail extensions are complete in 2023. All comments will be responded to in the Final SEIS, expected in Fall 2014.
Sound Transit hosted six open house/public hearings in July 2014.
