Explore future route and station locations with us

During the Everett Link Extension’s early scoping comment period last fall, we received more than 300 comments and questions from agencies, Tribes and community members. Your feedback is incredibly valuable and before we narrow down the alternatives further, we want to learn more about your priorities around bringing light rail to your community.

We have new information to share with you on potential route, station and Operations and Maintenance Facility North locations based on our analysis and community feedback. Visit our online open house to learn more and share your input by April 3. Your feedback is important to help us understand which alternatives are the best fit for future light rail in your community.

What have we heard so far?

The early scoping comment period was our first opportunity to hear directly from you about your thoughts on the project. We heard what was important to you, such as having safe and easy ways to bike and walk around stations, connecting to communities that haven’t had great access to transit and planning for transit-oriented development that includes affordable housing. We also heard questions and concerns about the potential for more traffic, residential and business displacement and the project cost and timeline.

You can learn more about what we heard by visiting our online open house, and we encourage you to fill out a survey to let us know more about what is important to you!

Common Themes

Community Advisory Group meetings continue

The Everett Link Extension’s Community Advisory Group provides a forum for community members to have a voice in the planning process. The group includes residents from across Snohomish County, transit riders, workers and representatives of organizations that reflect the corridor’s diversity, including those who’ve been historically excluded from planning processes like this. CAG members will:

  1. Make recommendations to the Elected Leadership Group at major project milestones.
  2. Aim for consensus on which alternatives best meet their communities’ needs.
  3. Highlight specific issues and trade-offs along the corridor.

The project advisory groups will continue to meet throughout 2022 and you can follow their progress by watching recordings and reading meeting summaries on the project website.
