Walk & Talk Details
Feet First is pleased to host this one-of-kind opportunity to connect community members with local leaders and public officials in a forum for open discussion about pedestrian safety and accessibility in the community. We will visit Link light rail station alternatives at West Seattle Junction, Avalon, and Delridge.* Sound Transit is currently evaluating and gathering public input on potential station sites.
Community Speakers and Guests
King County Council Chair Joe McDermott will outline some of the planning challenges and considerations to developing the West Seattle light rail stations.
The Link light rail site selections will influence West Seattle development over the coming decades, including whether or not people have safe and accessible walkways. We will discuss tradeoffs between the various site alternatives and how to ensure good walking access to the light rail system.
