Sound Transit invites comments on Long-Range Plan

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Now is the time to comment on Sound Transit’s Long-Range Plan Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (Draft SEIS) released last month.

If you haven’t already, now is your chance to provide a written comment or take a quick online survey. All input must be submitted electronically or postmarked by July 28, 2014.

There are several great ways to provide comments on the Draft SEIS.
What process is underway? And, what happens next?
Last fall, thousands of residents expressed interest in regional mass transit as the Sound Transit Board kicked off a process to update the Long-Range Plan. Those comments shaped the Draft SEIS which is now available for public review. Updating the Long-Range Plan later this year provides the framework for potential future mass transit expansion—now is your opportunity to comment on the Draft SEIS and share your regional transit priorities. Sound Transit is currently on its way to completing more than 30 miles of light rail extensions that voters approved for funding in 2008. Your comments on the Draft SEIS will help the Sound Transit Board identify future transit expansions after the light rail extensions are complete in 2023.

What is the regional Long-Range Plan? 
The Long-Range Plan serves as the blueprint for how the Central Puget Sound region can use mass transit expansions to protect and promote its mobility, economy, and environment. Updating the plan will address how to respond to rising demand and congestion as our population grows by about one million people by 2040. Future ballot measures will be shaped by the plan.
