Snohomish County looking for input on light rail planning area

SNOHOMISH COUNTY — Snohomish County is seeking public input in an online survey on how to plan ahead for the area around two future light rail stations in south Everett and Lynnwood. 
The survey is available through May 8 at https://bit.ly/SubareaPlanningSurvey 
The two stations will be located in unincorporated Snohomish County at 164th St (Ash Way Station) and 128th St (Mariner Station) near their respective intersection with I-5.
The multi-year project is in its second phase and is focused on information gathering for future decisions on a subarea plan. Phase one was centered around gathering public input on planned light rail station locations. The result of that two year process culminated in the Snohomish County Council passing a resolution indicating a publicly-favored option.
To find more information about that work and a video stream of the presentation to council on the project webpage at www.snohomishcountywa.gov/4068/Light-Rail-Communities
The voter-approved Sound Transit 2 (ST2) and Sound Transit 3 (ST3) will extend light rail from Northgate to Mountlake Terrace and Lynnwood and eventually into Everett via Paine Field.  Light rail is scheduled to arrive in downtown Everett by 2036.
Sound Transit will make the final decisions on the actual station location and alignment, but the county’s project will help inform a Subarea Plan and future transportation planning.
