Stakeholder Advisory Group

As part of the voter approved Sound Transit 3 (ST3) Plan, Sound Transit is kicking off the alternatives development phase of the West Seattle and Ballard Link Extensions. From now until spring 2019, Sound Transit will explore alternatives for station locations, water crossings, track locations and more. Community input is critical to informing key decisions and your help is needed! 

We need your help!

Sound Transit is seeking 5-7 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 develop project alternatives for further study in the environmental review phase of the project.

Sound Transit is committed to involving the public in the development of a preferred alternative for the West Seattle and Ballard Link Extensions, which will be identified by the Sound Transit Board in April 2019. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a Stakeholder Advisory Group member, please fill out the application below or pass it along to someone who may be interested.
