Early property owner notification has begun, with 75 individual meetings already accomplished

Letters were mailed out on June 16, 2013 to property owners potentially impacted by one or more route and station alternatives under review. The letters included an invitation for property owners to meet individually with staff. Staff began meeting with property owners on June 26 to discuss the project, the specific type of impact, route and station alternatives, real estate process and schedule. So far staff have met with over 75 property owners.

Early notice to property owners provides potentially impacted business and residents an opportunity to meet with staff to be informed about the project, specific impact and get all questions answered before the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) is published and public hearings are scheduled. Each property owner should be prepared to provide feedback on the project when DEIS formal comment period begins.

Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS)

The DEIS for the project was recently approved by the Federal Transit Administration and is expected to be published and available for public review by the end of July. The DEIS will be soon be available for review online, at public libraries, at Sound Transit and by request.

DEIS open house and public hearings

Open house and public hearings are expected to be scheduled in mid-August once the formal comment period begins. Public meetings will be held in Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace, Shoreline and Northgate. Confirmed dates and times will be announced in the next few weeks. .

Mountlake Terrace started meeting with property owners almost a year ago.
