Here’s the agenda: Prop 1 to fund buses has passed! Want to to know if YOUR bus will be saved or expanded? Want to talk directly with the folks planning these things? Come to the WSTC Tuesday, November 11th!
6:30-6:40: Welcome to the WSTC, Introductions, Community News & Updates.
6:40-6:50: Coalition Business: Welcome Thomas Linde who will be filling one of the vacant Board position. This leaves two positions free – do you have a passion about transportation issues on the Peninsula?
6:50-7:00: Feedback from WSDOT: Review of the October 31 response from WSDOT to the WSTC about emergency and disaster event handling plans for SR99 and the Viaduct. This is feedback from our summer meeting with Lynn Thompson, Washington’s Transportation Secretary.
7:00-7:15: Fauntleroy and Delridge boulevard projects: A review of the current state of both projects, and what is required to advance both fully to completion.
7:15-7:45: Seattle Transportation Benefit District Proposition 1: We have invited Seattle City Councilmember Tom Rasmussen, chair of the Transportation Committee, and Chris Arkills, from County Executive Dow Constantine’s office, to join us for this discussion. Topics will include; what are the next steps for improving services to and from West Seattle and South Park? Which routes are targeted for growth, starting in July 2015? Under what conditions? How would WSTC’s potential seat on the City oversight and advisory commission of this program be filled?
7:45-8:00: Gathering of Neighbors 2014: Saturday, November 15 from 9:00a – 1:00p. WSTC will be giving a one-hour transportation keynote. One last quick planning and volunteer session here for it. The proposed idea is a 10-minute presentation on the WSTC and our current overall challenges, and a 50-minute interactive session to have the community help identify further challenges, issues, and possible solutions as a steering session for our 2015 agenda.
8:00-8:30: 2015 Steering: Identify additional key issues and goals we should pursue next, and in addition to what we’ve already begun on.
