The WSBLE DEIS Comments are done -- but we're not.

What happens next? Sound Transit and the Sound Transit Board are reviewing the over 5,000 comments they've received. YOU did that. Due to the amount of feedback they've received, the Sound Transit Board did officially move their decision-making meeting to the July meeting.

You do still have some options to share your thoughts with these officials. You can email the board at

Sound Transit's System Expansion Committee will be reviewing the comments and sharing their thoughts with the full board. Right now, the full board plans to vote on the proposed project in July.

WSBLE Advocacy
Use your networks.
Do you have friends, family, co-workers who use Transit to come into the City? Especially think about anyone you know who uses Sounder to commute -- really talk to them about their commute and how it connects with the existing transit system. What works? What doesn't? What could be better? Could this new train station make better connections happen? If so, how? 

We know that Sound Transit's mission is bigger than South Downtown. This network is why the CID station matters so much -- can we get input into how we make this project work well for those of us who live and work in historic south downtown and also those who commute in through south downtown?
HSD believes that a full study of the 4th Ave shallow alignment, with open, transparent community engagement, is in the best interests of the south downtown communities. We are advocating for this study to take place while Sound Transit prepares the final environmental impact statement.
Historic South Downtown is a state-created agency that exists to mitigate the impact of large, public projects on the two historic neighborhoods of south downtown Seattle. Our work is exclusively focused on Pioneer Square and Chinatown-International District. For more information on our work, visit our website at
