ST3 (Sound Transit) updates- stay informed and be involved. Brought to you by your West Seattle Chamber of Commerce- Government Advocacy Committee

This 30-day public comment period for the West Seattle and Ballard Link Extensions project started Friday, February 15th and includes multiple ways to share feedback. Scoping is the start of the federal environmental review process and provides an opportunity to comment on the route and station alternatives, topics to study in the environmental impact statement, and the project purpose and need. 

This is an especially important time to get involved and we want to hear from all! Here’s how to comment:
