5-8 p.m. Regional Transit Long Range Vision public meeting
Washington State History Museum
1911 Pacific Ave., Tacoma

Sound Transit will host the third of four public meetings to gather community input as the agency updates the Regional Transit Long Range Vision, its goals for improving our regional transit system in the years ahead. The Vision will provide a framework for the region to consider additional transit investments in response to continuing population growth and the need to move more people through our most congested travel corridors. Public input is an important part of the process and will play a key role in shaping the scope of the Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for the Vision. Through June 2, Sound Transit is collecting comments on alternatives and environmental issues that should be studied in the SEIS. Written comments on the scope of the SEIS should be sent to Perry Weinberg at 401 S. Jackson St., Seattle, WA 98104. The final meeting will take place in Seattle on Wednesday, May 19. More information is available at www.soundtransit.org.
