How Will Sound Transit 3 Affect Your Life?
|This November residents of King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties will vote on the next iteration of expansion of Sound Transit services, known as Sound Transit 3 (ST3). The package includes more than 60 miles of new light rail lines across Seattle, the Eastside, as well as connecting Tacoma to Everett. ST3 also includes bus rapid transit service on the Eastside, expansion of Sounder commuter rail, and the addition of parking capacity at various transit stations. Passage of the ballot measure will mean our region will make an approximate $54 billion investment in transit expansion and will see big new transit projects come on line every few years between now and 2041.
The Greenwood Community Council wants to help Greenwood residents make an informed voting decision on ST3. In our September general meeting we’ll delve into the details of the proposed projects in the plan, the project timelines, the funding structure, and projected costs to Puget Sound residents.
Please join us at 7:00 p.m. this evening, Sept. 20, at the Greenwood Library, 8016 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103.
