May 21, 2018

Forums wrap-up, alternatives development, summer festivals and upcoming events

Spring neighborhood forums wrap-up
Thanks to everyone who took the time to spend a morning or an evening with us at our recent neighborhood forums! These forums generated important conversations and key insights to help the project team continue to refine project alternatives. Your feedback is being shared with our Stakeholder Advisory Group, Elected Leadership Group and the Sound Transit Board

We’ll be planning another round of forums for later this year, so keep an eye out for more dates and details to come this summer.

Next steps for alternatives development
On May 17, the Elected Leadership Group reviewed the Stakeholder Advisory Group’s Level 1 recommendation for project alternatives to be carried forward into Level 2 and made their own Level 1 recommendation. The Sound Transit Board will be briefed on the leadership group’s recommendation on May 24.
