City seeking community input on downtown bus and light-rail planning

The City of Redmond is seeking community input on bus and light-rail planning that will inform Sound Transit’s upcoming downtown light-rail station area design. The city will host a public meeting from 6-8 p.m. Jan. 26 at Redmond City Hall to share four light-rail station area concepts and obtain input on community priorities for downtown bus and light-rail planning.

The public meeting is part of the Downtown Transit Integration Study, which the city is conducting to evaluate different station area concepts in advance of Sound Transit’s light-rail design work.

“Our goal is to integrate light rail into downtown Redmond so it supports the vision for downtown. This is the time for the community to express what they want for a safe, convenient and efficient station,” said Mayor John Marchione.

One outcome of the study will be a preliminary preferred downtown station area concept. The city will provide the concept to Sound Transit for evaluation as part of Sound Transit’s light-rail design process.
