Virtual community meetings set for March 17 and 18

SEATTLE – The public is invited to attend upcoming virtual community meetings as Washington State Ferries launches a multi-year planning process to replace the Fauntleroy Ferry Terminal in West Seattle. Community engagement will be at the core of how WSF develops this project.

The Fauntleroy terminal was built in the 1950s and needs substantial work to address deficiencies of the aging and seismically vulnerable structure to maintain safe and reliable service on the Fauntleroy/Vashon/Southworth ferry route. The meetings will include information on why the current Fauntleroy terminal needs to be replaced, how project plans will be developed and how the community can expect to be involved.

At 11 a.m. Wednesday, March 17, and 6 p.m. Thursday, March 18, WSF staff will provide a brief presentation and then answer questions from meeting participants. Both meetings will cover the same material and are designed to give participants the option to join the meeting that best fits their schedule. Members of the public can participate in the meeting from a laptop, desktop computer or mobile device, but advanced registration is required.
