Lake Washington foot ferry, light rail, arena highlight SLU Transportation meeting

SOUTH LAKE UNION -- Presentations visioning Puget Sound and Lake Washington foot ferry routes that could help sports fans and concert goers reach Seattle's Key Arena redevelopment along with the South Lake Union tech hub were among the mobility topics discussed at Wednesday's SLU Community Council Transportation Committee meeting.

Tacoma Councilmember Ryan Mello and Pierce Transit CEO Sue Dreier presented their vision for north, south ferry service connecting Tacoma to Seattle and other Puget Sound locations to a full room of North Downtown transportation leaders and residents on the campus of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in South Lake Union. 

While the vision for service along the Puget Sound is in its infancy, a separate, privately funded initiative that could connect South Lake Union and its Amazon.com workforce of some 50,000 with communities along Lake Washington has private backers.

The Lake Washington pilot was presented by SECO development's Rocale Timmons who discussed her company’s progress toward a Lake Washington pilot program connecting SECO’s massive housing and office development next to Renton’s Boeing plant with South Lake Union.  The service could coincide with the National Hockey League coming to Seattle as early as the fall of 2020.

South Lake Union Transportation chair Mike McQuaid said that bringing leaders from city departments, the community  and elected officials from our neighboring cities together is tantamount to staying ahead of our region's transportation challenges.

"Everywhere you look change is happening.  And it's leading some of the most important change in the world," he said.  "It's how we as a community manage it together that makes our city unique and special."

The monthly stakeholder meeting included presentations by Seattle Department of Transportation on its North Downtown Mobility Action Plan and ACCESS Seattle program to address congestion in SLU, Uptown and Belltown along with Sound Transit configuration through South Lake Union and an update by the The Oak View Group’s Lance Lopes on its $660 million Seattle Center Arena redevelopment.

Some 36 transportation advocates including representatives from major employers and developers in the Uptown, Belltown, Denny Triangle and South Lake Union neighborhoods along with representatives from Seattle City Councilmember Sally Bagshaw's office attended the monthly meeting.
