King County Metro staff holds second working group meeting with City


The King County Metro “Community Connections” team held the second of three Normandy Park Stakeholder Working Group meetings with the City on Wednesday, Dec. 13 at City Hall.

Metro staff presented, and then the stakeholder group discussed the menu of transportation conceptual solutions proposed by Metro staff subsequent to the first stakeholder group meeting in November.

Next, Metro staff will create and distribute a second survey to obtain community feedback on the proposed conceptual solutions.

Normandy Park had an unusually high response rate to the first “Community Connections” survey mailed to all Normandy Park households.  

We should repeat or exceed this high response rate when the second survey is distributed early next year!” City Manager Mark Hoppen said.

Hoppen added:

Soon after tabulating the results of this upcoming second survey, Metro staff will provide a follow up briefing to the City Council. A primary objective of the “Community Connections” pilot project is to provide Normandy Park residents and workers with better access to and from the new Link Light Rail Station at Angle Lake.  The problem with public transit is often the “last mile” connection.  This project can alleviate that gap.

In the future, we can work on developing a system that gets us that last mile to light rail in driverless vehicles.  (You think I’m kidding…I’m not. The City of SeaTac is working on it right now.)

And the next step after that…
