Sound Transit is seeking volunteers to serve as community members of the Tacoma Dome Link Extension Stakeholder Group. Members will whelp refine project alternatives for further study in the environmental review phase of the project. The project being studied will extend Link light rail from the Federal Way Transit Center to the Tacoma Dome.
The agency will consider stakeholder group candidates based on their knowledge of public transportation and mobility policy issues in South King and Pierce counties, interest in how transportation affects the lives of people in the region and understanding of one or more of the served communities along the project corridor. Candidates must also reflect the diversity of the corridor and be able to provide a balance of neighborhood and community interests.
Individuals selected to serve on the stakeholder group must be able to work collaboratively with other group members who have diverse opinions and perspectives and demonstrate a commitment to seeking consensus-driven solutions within the project schedule and budget. Members must be able to attend group meetings regularly and participate fully in group activities.
The group will meet up to six times around major project milestones through spring 2019.
The deadline to apply for the stakeholder group is 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 6. Applications can be found online. The Tacoma Dome Link Extension Elected Leadership Group will review application materials and confirm the appointments.
