Chamber on Board with Sounder Re-Routing?

The Board of Directors for the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber will consider a resolution next week that encourages Sound Transit to pursue more context sensitive solutions through the Dome District for expanded Sounder service, identifies key community goals for project design, and offers to convene a Programming & Design Summit to bring together public and private interests.

Earlier this year, two community groups expressed concerns about the routing of this project and invited the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Southwest Washington to develop new project alternatives that would, in their view, better support local economic development goals. In November, the Chamber’s City Center Luncheon examined these alternatives.

If approved by business leaders, provisions of the Chamber's resolution will be advocated with Sound Transit, which is expected to address the issue at their February 22nd meeting.
