Please visit Sound Transit's official West Seattle Link Extension page to provide feedback before the April 2nd deadline!

Sound Transit is working with several groups who provide feedback and make recommendations to the Sound Transit Board as alternatives move through evaluation and analysis.

West Seattle - Stakeholder Advisory Group (SAG)

The SAG is made up of selected community members representing neighborhoods along the project corridor and provides a forum for members to inform the development of alternatives for the West Seattle and Ballard Link Extensions. The role of the SAG is to highlight issues and consider trade-offs, build consensus around key project decisions, and make recommendations to the Elected Leadership Group (ELG).

West Seattle / Ballard - Elected Leadership Group (ELG)

The ELG is made up of elected officials that represent the project corridor and the Sound Transit Board (STB). The purpose of this group is to reach consensus around key decisions and work through project issues as needed. The role of the ELG is to appoint SAG members, represent the communities they serve and share community priorities, consider the needs of the project within the context of the greater regional transit system, work with project staff to understand and evaluate trade-offs, and make recommendations to the STB.
