Opportunity to serve on the Sound Transit Citizen Oversight Panel representing North King County 

Sound Transit is seeking volunteers from North King County to help the agency succeed in meeting its commitments to the public. The agency has two openings on the Citizen Oversight Panel (COP) from North King County. Sound Transit relies on the oversight and expertise of this dedicated and independent group of volunteers.

The COP was created in 1997 to independently monitor Sound Transit and make sure it meets its commitments to build and operate a regional bus, light rail and commuter rail transit system. The 15 COP members represent a variety of interests, professional expertise and experience. The COP meets twice monthly during normal business hours and acts as an independent oversight entity by digging into agency details, asking hard questions and reporting its findings to the Sound Transit Board of Directors.

  • Be able to attend meetings twice each month during normal business hours. 

Appointment Process

Copies of all applications and resumes will be provided to the Sound Transit Board for its review. The Board's Executive Committee will review and recommend candidates. The Board of Directors will confirm the appointments.

The ideal way to get rid of the noise is to install the Acoustic Panels in the area you live.
