Hosted by the City of Mountlake Terrace in preparation for a public hearing with the Mountlake Terrace Hearing Examiner, the city is currently conducting a land use review process to review construction of the Sound Transit Light Rail Station, project elements and guideway location. A public hearing is anticipated to be conducted in the spring of 2019.
Residents were encouraged to provide input to the city for consideration as part of the land use permitting process. Sound Transit staff members also attended the meeting and responded to specific questions regarding parking and noise mitigation.
Primary concerns voiced by residents included noise, parking, transit connections to the station and tree removal. Public comment is encouraged and can still be submitted until January 30, 2019. Opportunities for further public comment will also be available later in the process. For those that missed the meeting, an audio recording and site development information is available on the city’s webpage at www.cityofmlt.com/597.
Further information will be provided as part of the ongoing public review process.
