    Event Description:
    The West Seattle and Ballard Link Extensions will provide fast, reliable light rail connections to dense residential and job centers throughout the region and add a new downtown Seattle light rail tunnel to add more capacity for the entire regional system. Join us for the project’s formal scoping period to share your input on route and station alternatives Sound Transit is considering. Scoping is the next step in the environmental review process. Based on feedback gathered through the alternatives development process and the scoping comment period, the Sound Transit Board will identify a preferred alternative and other alternatives to study in the environmental impact statement (EIS). The scoping comment period concludes on March 18, 2019. As a part of scoping, you are invited to share your feedback at an open house. It’s an opportunity to: • Learn about the project background, the process for identifying a preferred alternative and how community input has shaped project development to date • Share your feedback on route and station locations, topics to study in the EIS and the project purpose and need • Participate in small group discussions with your neighbors and share your insights with project staff One of our events is Downtown at Ruth Fisher Boardroom and Grand Hall, Union Station (401 S Jackson St, Seattle, WA 98104) on March 7, 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm.
