Jan Drago, transportation chair of the Seattle City Council has schedule public outreach meetings on streetcar expansion plans. The meeting times and places:
Wednesday, July 2nd – Proposed Central Line at Seattle City Hall, 600 Fourth Avenue, Bertha Knight Landes Room, First Floor, 4-6pm
Tuesday, July 8th – Proposed Ballard/Fremont Line at Nordic Heritage Museum, 3014 NW 67 Street, 4-6pm
Wednesday, July 9th – Proposed U-District Line at University Heights Center, 5031 University Way NE, 4-6pm
Tuesday, July 15th – Proposed First Hill Line at Yesler Community Center, 917 E. Yesler Way, 4-6pm
You can see the expansion plans here. It’s worth noting that the First Hill line will likely be part of a Sound Transit expansion.
Maybe I’m off base, but I’m basically for these routes with the exception of the “Central” line through downtown, I think it makes it too easy to fight a future (ST3?) light-rail route through downtown. The Ballard line could have the same effect, but it’d be lessened by the fact that line doesn’t really serve the other areas in the west part of the city that need rail: Belltown, “Uptown”, Queen Anne, and the part of the city north of Ballard.
