The Greenwood Community Council’s monthly meeting will include information about the upcoming Sound Transit 3 package, to help voters understand the proposed projects, timelines and projected costs. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 20, at the Greenwood Library, 8016 Greenwood Ave. N.
This November residents of King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties will vote on the next iteration of expansion of Sound Transit services, known as Sound Transit 3 (ST3). The package includes more than 60 miles of new light rail lines across Seattle, the East side, as well as connecting Tacoma to Everett. ST3 also includes bus rapid transit service on the Eastside, expansion of Sounder commuter rail, and the addition of parking capacity at various transit stations. Passage of the ballot measure will mean our region will make an approximate $54 billion investment in transit expansion and will see big new transit projects come on line every few years between now and 2041.
The meeting also will include the Council’s usual monthly business, plus an update from the property owner of the Greenwood explosion site on his plans for that block of Greenwood Avenue from North 84th to 85th streets.
