Light Rail Permitting CAC

The Bellevue East Link Permitting Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) represents a citywide perspective in design and permit review of the East Link light rail facilities and tracks. It is tasked with review of project components that are owned, built and operated by Sound Transit, which includes the tracks, stations and ancillary structures, up to Sound Transit’s property line.

Formed as a result of the Light Rail Overlay Land Use code adopted by the City Council in February 2013, the CAC advised Sound Transit on the design and mitigation permit process for East Link. The CAC met through April 2016.

Topic CAC Role
Development Standards The CAC advisory authority pertains only to reviewing the light rail system and facilities plans for compliance with already adopted standards. The CAC will not develop new standards.
Design guidelines The CAC advisory authority pertains only to reviewing the light rail system and facilities plans for compliance with already adopted design guideline. The CAC will not develop new guidelines.
Existing and planned conditions Depending on timing, background research of existing character and conditions around each station and the light rail alignment could help inform the CAC in context-sensitive design recommendations.
Parking and traffic The CAC will provide review of Sound Transit parking facilities and drop-off areas associated with stations. It does not address neighborhood parking and traffic issues.
Public safety The CAC will consider public safety as an element that will inform their recommendation on design and mitigation.
