Chamber Weighs-In on Sound Transit 3

Posted By Chris Johnson, Monday, May 16, 2016

The formal comment period on the ST3 Draft Plan ended on April 29 and the Bellevue Chamber has provided direct feedback. During the month of May, Sound Transit will review all comments, prior to likely adoption of ST3 ballot measure in June.

The Chamber Transportation Committee has been busy scrutinizing the draft plan, with a particular emphasis on those investments proposed for East King County. The comment letter adopted by the Chamber Board reflects Committee input, as well as a survey sent out to Chamber leadership.

As in the past, the Chamber’s top transit priority is to support implementation of Bus Rapid Transit in the I-405 corridor and construction of adequate park and ride capacity to support the system. Similarly, the Chamber sees extension of East Link light rail from Overlake to DT Redmond as a potential “early win” for East King taxpayers.

Please take a look at our current letter, as well as the draft plan map and project list. We'll have a pro-con discussion on the final ST3 plan in July or August.
