Drop-in session with Sound Transit provides individual attention

I went to the drop in session for the Lynnwood Link at the Shoreline Library held on Wednesday, July 24, 2019 from 4-7pm. (see previous article)

This was rather different from the previous large events which attracted over 150 people, and the format was different.

There was no formal presentation. They had one of the small meeting rooms off the main lobby. The table was lined with stacks of all the construction handouts that had been issued - all of which have been published in the Shoreline Area News.

People were encouraged to pick up the ones they had missed or were interested in.

On another table were printouts of aerial views of the ground where the light rail will run.

My Nguyen, Community Outreach Specialist, assigned to the Shoreline portion of the Link, and Blake Jones, Community Outreach Corridor Manager, were both there, along with an assistant.

People dropped in, one and two at a time, picked up flyers, looked at the map, and asked questions of My and Blake. Everyone that I saw was able to ask their individual question and be able to ask follow up questions.

I had an interesting conversation with Blake about the Ballard to West Seattle line and its engineering challenges - Puget Sound, downtown Seattle, the West Seattle hills, West Seattle bridges.

My is in process of contacting local organizations to schedule other drop in sessions. We will publish notice of those as they are scheduled.
