Sound Transit will host an open house from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday (April 6) at Midtown Station, 813 Academy Street.
At the event, staff will share conceptual designs for a proposed garage, surface lot, and other non-motorized access improvements at the Sumner Sounder Station. The public will also have the chance to comment on the environmental analysis for the project.
A drop-in session is also scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday (April 7) at the Gordon Family YMCA, 16101 64th Street East.
Those unable to attend the open house or drop-in session can visit an online open house and take a short survey at sumneraccess.publicmeeting.info.
In the 2008 Sound Transit 2 ballot measure, voters approved funding for improving commuter access to Sounder train stations. Station improvements being considered at Sumner include a parking garage with about 623 stalls, a net increase of 505 parking spaces, and enhanced connections for pedestrians and bicycle users.
The public can review and comment on the Mitigated Determination of Non-significance (MDNS) and the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) checklist at soundtransit.org/sumnerimprovements/sumner-environmental-checklist. The comment period ends April 14.
The Sound Transit Board of Directors is scheduled to select the project to build this spring.
