SOUNDER TRAIN WHISTLE STOP

My name is Kevin Morgan and saw your poster for your sustainability/community meeting tonight while driving up 3rd Ave. this morning.  Michael Harthorne of the Ballard News Tribune has written an article about a Sounder train stop down at Shilshole Bay Marina/Golden Gardens.  I believe the article can still archived online or if interested I have a hard copy.  Since Broadview is the next neighborhood over from mine I thought that residents there would benefit from a commuter train stop too.  The broad strokes are these:  Put it on level ground down there(no big excavation projects-minimal environmental impact), no new parking lots-it is for bus, bike and pedestrian people, the track is already there(and a switch so that freight can go by), put a red light/green light, ticket puncher, bus size shelter and your done…most economical transit plan ever.

 I currently have about 100 signatures of support from my posters thatI have been hanging up around town.  Would I be able to bring some of my supporter sign up sheets to your meeting tonight?  I am trying to get as many as I can before I meet Mary Lou Dickerson for the first time Thursday evening. Thanks for your time and look forward to hearing from you.  Sincerely, Kevin
