Dome Business District
2601 East D Street, #308
Tacoma, WA

Dear Dome Business District Members:

Recently, Pierce County Executive Pat McCarthy met with members of the Sound Transit Board from Pierce County and representatives from the Dome District. The subject of the meeting was the Gateway Concept and earthen embankment chosen as the final design alternative for the D-M Street Sounder Extension.

Dome District representatives raised a number of issues about the design decision and stated that their concerns were also shared by many of Tacoma’s community leasers and other groups involved in environmental and development issues.

As a result, the Executive shared with us that the Pierce County members of the Sound Transit Board would like to meet with community leaders to present data prepared by Sound Transit explaining the basis for the recommended final design, as well as address the post and beam alternative offered by the Dome District representatives. We have been asked to forward the meeting information so that you can attend if you are available.

The meeting is scheduled for Monday, July 27th, 9:00 a.m., at the Freighthouse Square center lobby and ticket vending area. The group will begin with a presentation and then walk the alignment so you can connect design elements with actual locations.

Map link and directions to Freigthouse Square:
Address of Freighthouse Square is 2501 East D Street, Tacoma, 98421

Since this meeting will only be successful if members from the community can attend, we are hoping to see you there.
