About Sound Transit:
Opportunities for successful transit-oriented development (TOD) are among the key issues evaluated as Sound Transit works with city and community partners to plan station and route locations for new light rail lines.
With collaboration from community stakeholders, private and non-profit developers, and partner agencies, Sound Transit's TOD team works to set up TOD outcomes from the earliest days of transit project planning by evaluating development potential of alternative alignments and station locations, and then cultivating specific opportunities through the design phase.
Join us to discuss:
Sound Transit solidified its commitment to TOD and affordable housing outcomes as part of the voter-approved ST3 Plan and through the adoption of its Equitable Transit-Oriented Development Policy in 2018.
A component of that commitment is engaging with communities utilizing an equity lens, specifically underrepresented and vulnerable communities. TOD staff is finalizing its Equitable Engagement Strategy for TOD and is seeking feedback from affordable housing organizations, developers and stakeholders to inform the approach to engaging the community around potential TOD projects.
During this meeting Sound Transit will also give an overview of the Sound Transit 3 voter-approved projects in Pierce County and update on how they are reacting and shifting their work projects due to COVID-19 and a significant drop in revenues.
