Peter O'Callahan TNT News Article
Environment and Public Works Meeting Notice

Sound Transit and Post and Beam Supporters are in the news again. Blog article written by Patrick O'Callahan, published in yesterday's Tacoma News Tribune.

City Manager Eric Anderson, gives some insight into the project, but unfortunately his statement about the height is incorrect. The track needs to be at a specific grade so both options will be the same height.

You can leave comments when reading the article online.

Concerned Citizens are working on a plan to lower the costs of the project, as well as create jobs for a local Tacoma company. We'll post information as it becomes available. We're also looking for a lawyer to provide us with some concerned citizen support.


Environment and Public Works Committee, is meeting tonight at City Hall. Meeting Time/Frequency: 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month. The link below has additional info and the agenda. Rumor has it that some information about Sound Transit plans will be presented. It's a good meeting to attend if you have time.


Sound Transit is apparently looking at three options for the B Street Ravine. However, they are not releasing their ideas or plans at this time. This makes it difficult to provide them with feedback and input on the plans.

Concerned citizens are willing to work with Sound Transit and the Tacoma City Council to help this project along.

We are not interested in slowing the project or having it cost millions more. We just want it done correctly and in a way that is best for the future of Tacoma and the Dome District.
