In 2016, Sound Transit will begin the final design phase for the Lynnwood Link light rail extension that will run through Shoreline. As part of that effort, beginning in mid-2016, Sound Transit will hold three public open houses to gather input on the design of the stations and related facilities at N 145th and N 185th Streets.

To ensure the community’s interests are adequately represented during Sound Transit’s design phase, the City will develop a set of guiding principles to help guide the design of the light rail stations and facilities in Shoreline.

"We need your help in designing these important guiding principles." 

On January 27, the City will hold an open house to gather your input on:
  • How the stations and facilities should look and feel;
  • Ways to make the stations and facilities more sustainable;
  • What types of public amenities should be incorporated into the designs;
  • What will be important to ensure the stations and facilities are accessible to all people;
  • How best to maintain safety for transit users and neighbors; and
  • What improvements can be made to enhance all modes of transportation to and from the stations.

Your ideas will ultimately be used to develop the Shoreline Light Rail Design Guiding Principles, which will be adopted by the City Council as a policy document to help guide Sound Transit’s design of the light rail stations and facilities.

Wednesday, January 27, 2016, 6:00 to 8:30pm, Shorewood High School – Commons and Theater, 17300 Fremont Ave. N.
