Public can review conceptual designs for proposed garage, comment on environmental review 

Sound Transit will conduct an informational open house Tuesday, Feb. 23 from 4 to 6 p.m. at Puyallup City Hall, 333 S. Meridian. At the event, staff will share conceptual designs for a proposed garage and other non-motorized access improvements at the Puyallup Sounder station. The public will also have the chance to comment on the environmental analysis for the project.

People unable to attend the event can visit an online open house at puyallupaccess.publicmeeting.info.

In the 2008 Sound Transit 2 ballot measure, voters approved funding for improving commuter access to Sounder train stations. Station improvements being considered include more parking, enhanced connections for pedestrians and bicycle users, and bus access improvements. 

The open house will provide an opportunity to discuss and provide comment on the environmental analysis that examines the benefits and potential impacts of a proposed 503-stall garage, as well as other station access improvements. The Sound Transit Board of Directors is scheduled to select the project to build this spring.
