King County Regional Transit Committee to meet at Shoreline Community College

Friday, July 12, 2013

The Regional Transit Committee of the Metropolitan King County Council will meet on Wednesday, July 17, 2013, 2:30pm at Shoreline Community College, Building 9000, 16101 Greenwood Ave N, Shoreline 98133.

Committee members are scheduled to discuss and possibly recommend to the full council:
  • An ordinance adopting updates to the Strategic Plan for Public Transportation 2011-2021 and King County Metro Service Guidelines (Ordinance 2013-0230). 

The Chair of the RTC is Metropolitan King County Councilmember Rod Dembowski, who represents Shoreline on the County Council. The membership of the RTC are elected officials from throughout King County. The RTC meets on the third Wednesday of every month, usually in the King County Courthouse in downtown Seattle. In an effort to increase participation and accessibility, Dembowski, along with Committee Vice Chair Kim Allen—a member of the Redmond City Council— are working to ensure that the Committee also meets in various communities throughout the County.

The focus of the special meeting will be discussion and possible action on the 2013 updates to the Strategic Plan for Public Transportation 2011-2021. The discussion will include: refinements to the Service Guidelines, park-and-rides and access to transit, and concepts for linking transit with development. One proposed change would include adding student enrollment at universities and colleges – including Shoreline Community College –with jobs when Metro evaluates transit service needs.

As with all RTC meetings, the public is encouraged to attend and provide comment.
