Upcoming N Seattle transit station meetings need your input – UPDATED

Is Northgate Station going to have family-friendly biking and walking access? How about Roosevelt Station? It’s not clear yet. That’s why your voice is needed at these upcoming public meetings to make sure the need for safe and easy access is a priority during station design.

From Cascade Bicycle Club:

You may have read our previous posts regarding the Northgate Link light rail station area plans (here, here & here), and maybe even attended a past North Link meeting. We’re calling on you again to make sure Sound Transit, King County and the City of Seattle are working together to plan and design all North Link station areas to encourage access by sustainable and healthy modes of transportation — specifically walking, bicycling and transit. In other words, safe and attractive bicycle and pedestrian routes to and from the stations, along with safe and accessible bicycle parking at the stations (with enough capacity to meet future demand), should be a priority as Sound Transit moves forward with its station-area planning for North Link.

North Link Light Rail Community Meeting details:

Wednesday, March 21, 6 – 8:30 p.m. – Northgate Station to Tunnel Portal Construction
Olympic View Elementary School
504 NE 95th St., Seattle

Come discuss preliminary construction plans for Northgate Station and the above-ground light rail guideway and tunnel portal. Presentation begins at 6:30 p.m.

Monday, March 26, 6 – 8:30 p.m. – Roosevelt Station Construction
Ravenna-Eckstein Community Center
6535 Ravenna Ave NE, Seattle

Come discuss construction plans for Roosevelt Station. Presentation begins at 6:30 p.m.

Wednesday, April 11, 6 – 8:30 p.m. – Roosevelt Station 60% Design
Roosevelt High School Commons
1410 NE 66th St., Seattle

Come see and discuss the latest design for Roosevelt Station. Presentation begins at 6:30 p.m.

UPDATE: Seattle Transit Blog reports that the one-to-one parking replacement requirement could possibly be worked around for the Northgate Station. This is fantastic news, as such a requirement would surely require Sound Transit to build a very expensive parking garage. This is a great option to push at the meeting if you go, because what the station (and mall) really needs is a pedestrian and biking bridge over I-5. This would dramatically increase the number of homes within walking and biking distance of the station and opens more options for safe routes. As Cascade demonstrated:
