More meetings on Mukilteo ferry plans

Washington State Ferries will conduct two additional meetings in Everett and Edmonds this week to gather public comment on the fate of the Mukilteo Ferry Terminal.

Ferry officials have come up with 10 possible concepts for the terminal to improve the Clinton-Mukilteo route.

They range from doing nothing other than replacing pieces in the existing terminal, to upgrading the existing terminal, moving it down the Mukilteo waterfront or relocating it to Everett or Edmonds.

In Edmonds, the meeting will be tonight from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the Edmonds City Council chambers, 250 5th Ave. N.

In Everett, the meeting will be Thursday, Oct. 28, at the city of Everett public hearing room in the Wall Street Building, 2930 Wetmore Ave.

The meetings follow similar events in Langley and Mukilteo and an online public discussion earlier this month.

More meetings are promised in the next two years as Washington State Ferries and its consultants move through the process of obtaining environmental permits, beginning construction and completing the project by 2019.

All public comment in this first phase of the project's planning is due before Nov. 19. For information, or to send a comment, e-mail hrodero@prrbiz.com or visit www.wsdot.wa.gov/projects/ferries/mukilteoterminal/multimodal.
