Snohomish County Moving: An Issues Forum on ST3

Affordable Housing Breakfast Forum

September 16, 2016 – 7:30am-9:00am

Weyerhaeuser Room, Everett Station


On June 23, the Sound Transit Board adopted Sound Transit 3 (ST3), a ballot measure for the region’s voters to consider in November 2016. The ST3 plan would expand light rail service and add bus rapid transit and Sounder Rail capacity creating a regional transportation network from Tacoma to Everett, Seattle to Bellevue and many points in between. Click here for a complete map of the proposed expansion. To do this, the ST3 ballot measure asks the regions voters to approve increases to the Motor Vehicle Excise Tax, property tax and sales tax.

What do YOU think? Good plan? Bad plan? Simply want to learn more? Join us for what promises to be a lively and informative session on one of the most important measures facing our region. Our breakfast forum will feature speakers from both the No on ST3 and Yes on ST3 campaigns to present their respective views on the matter. The event will be moderated with questions taken from the audience.
