Volunteers sought to serve on West Seattle and Ballard Link Extensions Stakeholder Advisory Group

Jan 5, 2018

Opportunity to help refine project alternatives for further study during environmental review

Sound Transit is seeking five volunteers to serve as community members of the West Seattle and Ballard Link Extensions Stakeholder Advisory Group. Members will work with other advisory group members to help refine project alternatives for further study in the environmental review phase of the project.

Candidates for the Stakeholder Advisory Group will be considered based on knowledge of public transportation and mobility policy issues in the city of Seattle, an interest in how transportation affects the lives of people in the region, and an understanding of one or more of the served communities along the project corridor. Candidates must also reflect the diversity of the corridor and be able to provide a balance of neighborhood and community interests.

Individuals selected to serve on the advisory group must be able to work collaboratively with other group members who hold diverse opinions and perspectives and demonstrate a commitment to seeking consensus-driven solutions within the project schedule and budget. Members must be able to attend advisory group meetings regularly and participate fully in advisory group activities.

The West Seattle and Ballard Link Extensions Stakeholder Advisory Group will provide a forum for community members to inform the development of alternatives for extending light rail to West Seattle and Ballard. Advisory group members will work through project issues and build consensus around key project decisions, highlight specific issues and trade-offs in the corridor, and make recommendations to help identify alternatives to study during environmental review. More information about the project is available at soundtransit.org/wsblink.

The group will meet monthly starting this February through spring 2019. More information on the Stakeholder Advisory Group is available at https://www.soundtransit.org/Projects-and-Plans/west-seattle-and-ballard-link-extensions/stakeholder-advisory-group.
