“Sound Transit’s Capital Committee just voted unanimously to advance the Development Agreement at the Broadway Station,” boasts the Champion’s Facebook page.
To anyone who stopped paying attention the past few weeks, the City of Seattle unanimously approved the Capitol Hill Champion group’s Development Agreement in August. The next order of business is ensuring that Sound Transit’s vote has the same outcome.
On September 26, the Champion will provide testimony in support of the Development Agreement. Public comment is welcome at the beginning of the meeting, but showing up to support Capitol Hill’s vision by standing when the Champion gives testimony is all that’s needed.
A lot is at stake. If Sound Transit approves of the Development Agreement, the development in and around Capitol Hill’s Broadway Light Rail Station will provide affordable housing, a public plaza that will house the Broadway Farmers Market, a festival street, community space, and then some, to the community.
The meeting is happening on September 26 at Union Station (401 South Jackson Street), from 1:30 to 4 p.m. Written comments can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org before the vote.
