Sound Transit Appeal to Hearing Examiner Explained
Within the past few days, the City has received questions from Mercer Island citizens regarding the Mercer Island Transit Interchange and the upcoming public hearing involving the City and Sound Transit.
Sound Transit has appealed the City’s permit decision to the Hearing Examiner. This is not a hearing to discuss the full transit interchange project as a whole. The only issues for the hearing are denial of a permit for a proposed curb cut on the north side of North Mercer Way, conveyance of right-of-way to the City, an operations and maintenance agreement, traffic control plans, and timing of final asphalt restoration.
A public notice for the hearing was mailed on February 5 to properties within 400 feet, posted at the site, and published in the weekly Community Planning & Development Bulletin produced by the City.
The full public hearing notice is available here and includes information on how you can participate if you’d like to discuss the specific issues being appealed.
