January 12th... could we narrow that down a little? I don't see a start time in this notice... And I would like to share this notice with the Kirkland Views blog since they are having quite the dispute over ST3 proposed projects in their city :-)

So it looks like the City of Shoreline has already decided on a six-lane 145th St. I guess they really son't care about the hundreds of homeowners there. This looks like they don't really care about public comment or reality, just like when they decided to put the station at 145th St. And yes, Shoreline City Council all but decided this for Sound Transit. ST and Seattle wanted two stations, one at 130th and one at 155th. The 145th/5th Station is a horrible location, it's like deciding to put a Starbucks drive-thru at the 520/I-5 exchange.

You think that's bad, Kirkland city council bought miles of railroad track, pulled the track out, and called it The Cross Kirkland Corridor and opened it for foot traffic and bikes/non-motorized. THEN the council admitted they gave Sound Transit an easement on the trail and they want a tax increase to put buses on half the width. Oh, and they want the taxpayers to cough up the additional dough to do it. Why would anyone vote for ST3 taxes? This isn't Tokyo, no point rushing into that sort of density by building transit to support it.

Are they actually going through with buses on that corridor? I would think the Cascade Bicycle Club would be all over the City and ST to stop this. Buses so close to pedestrians and cyclists sounds like an accident waiting to happen.
