1. Are there other changes to the SMP that King County should consider as part of its periodic review?
Considering the abrupt intensification of climate change extremes and proximity of many shorelines to active faults, it seems prudent to better understand shoreline erosion rates and impact of likely seismic events on landslides, shoreline rock falls and related slope failures. This should include establishing the precise distribution of active faults on Vashon Island which could require deploying a seismic array in the area to detect microseismic events.


Please select one:
Yes prohibit all fish net pens in all of Quartermaster Harbor


3. Are there other changes to the County’s aquaculture standards that should be considered?
In light of legacy contamination along many of KC shorelines (for example, East Vashon Island Tramp Harbor and Ellisport Creek Bunker C contamination from the early to mid 1900's), it seems prudent to perform extensive heavy metal and organic geochemical analyses of nearshore sediments and soils prior to granting any aquaculture permits to protect public health.


4. What issues should the County consider in its decision-making about how to best prepare for sea-level rise?

We need improved data on shoreline erosion rates, subsurface geology (distribution of slip surfaces such as Lawton Clay), impact of sea level rise on those shorelines prone to landslides, and related issues.


5. What kinds of issues should the County consider in its decision-making about how to best prepare for sea level rise?
Scenario planning using integrated earth system process models.


7. Are there other strategies or best practices that you would like the County to consider?
Exercise due diligence in response to natural hazard mitigation.

How often do you use transit (Metro, Sound Transit, Community Transit, etc.) services?
Less than once a week


Which fixed route bus routes do you use? (select all that apply)
Route 245, Other - B


Of the flexible mobility services available in the north Eastside, which have you tried?



Overall, how satisfied are you with Metro’s north Eastside service today?
Somewhat satisfied


How concerned are you that March 2019 changes may make the transit service you use slower or less reliable?
Somewhat concerned


How will March 2019 changes affect your transit use?
My transit use will not be impacted by these changes.


How would adding or improving connections to future BRT or Link light rail impact your transit use?
I will use transit more than I do now.


How would taking no further action after March 2019 (Option A for no change or additional improvements) affect your transit use?
I will use transit less than I do now


Care to share additional information about March 2019 changes, or opportunities to improve connections to light rail, BRT, or local destinations? (Optional)
I am concerned that WSDOT will eliminate the Montlake offramp transit lane during construction. That will be the most important time for bus priority. They should close the ramp to cars before eliminating the transit lane.


You've got 10 dots to 'spend'. Based on community mobility priorities, help us decide how much to invest in each priority when making improvements to north Eastside service. (Spend as many or as few dots on each option until they are gone)
Invest in making service to, from, and within the north Eastside reliable and dependable (3), Invest in offering service more often throughout the day, later into the evening, and every day of the week (5), Invest in improving connections to regional transit options like bus rapid transit and light rail (2)


You've got 10 dots to 'spend'. Based on the improvements proposed below to add frequency and extend hours, which best address mobility needs and priorities in the north Eastside? (Spend as many or as few dots on each improvement as desired until they are gone)

More frequent evening service on Route 255 (Totem Lake - Kirkland - UW Seattle) and new Route 250 (Redmond to Kirkland) (10)


How will these evening and weekend service improvements affect your transit use?
I will use transit more than I do now.


Is there anything else you would like to share about weekend and evening transit services?
Why do the options in this question vary both the type of service (evening vs weekend, frequency vs extended) and the route numbers? It makes it impossible to select more frequent weekend service without also selecting the 239.

I want to spend my dots on more frequent/extended weekend/evening service on the 245, 250, 255.


If Route 255 is reoriented to UW Station instead of downtown Seattle, do you support changing Routes 540 and 541 to create a new route that would instead provide direct connections between Overlake, South Kirkland P&R, north Downtown Seattle, and South Lake Union?

Yes


If you do not support changing Routes 540 and 541 if Route 255 is reoriented, please provide feedback on why.
Skip the South Kirkland P&R. It's a parking lot, not a place. 255 will connect to the new route.


You've got 10 dots to 'spend'. Based on the improvements proposed below to make service more dependable, which best address mobility needs and priorities in the north Eastside? (Spend as many or as few dots on each improvement as desired until they are gone)
Direct connection to the UW Link Station for trips into Downtown Seattle that are faster and more reliable (4), Service every 15 minutes between Downtown Kirkland and Redmond Town Center weekdays on Route 250 (6)


How will these frequency and reliability service improvements affect your transit use?
I will use transit more than I do now


How would moving the future Route 225 in Kenmore to serve new stops along Juanita Drive NE instead of serving the current stops along NE 153rd / NE 155th, and 84th Ave NE impact your transit use?
I have no opinion


Is there anything else you would like to share about dependability for transit services?
Stop spending transit money on car infrastructure (extended turn pocket at Old Redmond Rd/148th, right turn lane on 116th). Spend transit money on transit-only infrastructure.


You've got 10 dots to 'spend'. Based on the improvements proposed below to make service more convenient to use, with coordinated transfers, which best address mobility needs and priorities in the north Eastside? (Spend as many or as few dots on each improvement as desired until they are gone)
Street and bus stop improvements at the UW Link Station for an easier transfer to Route 255 (10)


How will these convenience and ease of use service improvements affect your transit use?
I will use transit more than I do now


What appeals to you about Community Ride? (check all that apply)
Nothing.


What concerns do you have about Community Ride? (check all that apply)
Other - It will take money away from fixed route transit.


How likely are you to try Community Ride?
Very unlikely


You've got 10 dots to 'spend'. Based on the proposed improved connections to schools and local destinations, which best address mobility needs and priorities in the north Eastside? (Spend as many or as few dots on each improvement as desired until they are gone)
More direct connections between Downtown Kenmore, Kingsgate P&R, Lake Washington Institute of Technology, and Overlake Transit Center on new Route 225 (5), More direct connection between UW Bothell/Cascadia College and Downtown Kirkland on Route 230 (5)


How will these access improvements affect your transit use?
I will use transit less than I do now


Is there anything else you would like to share about access to local destinations for transit services?
"Access to local destinations" sounds like a prioritization of one-seat rides in low density areas (and therefore will have low ridership). Connect these places (especially the schools) to good transfer points.


What appeals to you about Community Van? (check all that apply)
Nothing about Community Van appeals to me.


What concerns do you have about Community Van? (check all that apply)
Other - It will take money away from fixed route service.


How likely would you be to try Community Van?
Very unlikely


Based on the information you have heard about the proposed changes for September 2019, to what degree do you agree or disagree that the needs from the community were addressed?



Overall, how satisfied do you think you would be with Metro services if the September 2019 proposal were implemented?
Somewhat satisfied


Is there anything else you would like to share about the September 2019 proposal?
I think you need to be pushing cities to implement land use policies that support good transit. We need to be moving towards a system where people can be car-free, starting in core areas probably around East Link and expanding from there. This goes far beyond a route restructuring.

I am concerned about the closure of the Montlake freeway station, and I am concerned that the 255 will be less reliable and less frequent if it continues to go downtown.

If transit is more convenient, I will take it more.

Yes


If you do not support changing Routes 540 and 541 if Route 255 is reoriented, please provide feedback on why.
The new route should not serve South Kirkland P&R. That detour is too long for through-riders and too clogged with cars. Most people coming on a bus will be on the 255 and can transfer at Evergreen point. The park & ride is already full with 255 riders. I'd rather spend the service hours on more/extended frequency.

Is there anything else you would like to share about dependability for transit services?
Don't use transit money on car infrastructure. e.g. right turn lane at Old Redmond Rd/148th Ave. Transit money should be for transit use only. Otherwise you'll just induce more traffic and eventually the car lane will fill up and the bus will still be stuck in traffic.


You've got 10 dots to 'spend'. Based on the improvements proposed below to make service more convenient to use, with coordinated transfers, which best address mobility needs and priorities in the north Eastside? (Spend as many or as few dots on each improvement as desired until they are gone)

Other - I am concerned that it will cost too much and take resources from fixed route service.


How likely are you to try Community Ride?
Very unlikely


Is there anything else you would like to share about convenience and ease of use for transit services?
More convenient for me would be for my regular routes to be more frequent, and for bike parking to be available at my bus stops. Community Ride will not make transit more convenient for me.


You've got 10 dots to 'spend'. Based on the proposed improved connections to schools and local destinations, which best address mobility needs and priorities in the north Eastside? (Spend as many or as few dots on each improvement as desired until they are gone)

How will these access improvements affect your transit use?
I will use transit the same that I do now


Is there anything else you would like to share about access to local destinations for transit services?
None of these destinations are important to me. I don't think the ridership is there to make them worthwhile. The exception is the schools: UWB and LWTC need service, but since they draw from all over they need a quick connection to a good transfer point. I don't see much ridership from Bastyr - it's too far from Juanita Dr

1. What about using the 331 to make the connection to the Link in Shoreline. That bus needs more hours for the evening!!
2. Keep the 234 (Kenmore to Bellevue TC). This route goes near the downtown core of Kenmore, to Juanita, to the Kirkland TC, the South Kirkland TC and the Bellevue TC. Guess what that route is- from start to finish is only an hour and look at how many popular destinations and connections it makes. If you get rid of it - it looks like I will have to catch a bus up to Cascadia College then transfer to another bus either a bus at the College or catching a 535 at Totem Lake TC. My bus ride now looks like 3 buses. Or 2 hours if you take a 225 to the 249 (Overlake TC to Bellevue TC).
3. Wait to place the new buses, the new routes! What happens if the plans for the BRT or Link ends up taking longer or they have to change streets for any reason then we are all messed up. Are these plans the BRT and the Link are these ironclad? As in are the stops and streets are locked in.
4. Run buses more frequently!

Is there anything else you would like to share about weekend and evening transit services?
Ending buses at 7pm is a waste. I have lived in Kenmore for 6 yrs and I am bus dependent. I can't attend many functions unless they are in Seattle. The 331 stops at 7pm and I like to go up to Everett for poetry readings and open mic music nights -but I can't go because there is no way for me to get home other than going all the way downtown Seattle and doubling back up on the 522. My event starts at 6 pm and goes til 9:30 or 10pm. Also, my 86 yr old mother lives in Shoreline...I can only stay til roughly 6:30 so I can catch the last 331 of the night. This is a problem. Weekend service is weak here. Why not run the 372 all the way up to Cascadia College. It is not just a college but a Bus Hub. We have only 1 bus to Downtown and if we want to go to U district we have to transfer at 130th and Lake City way. It makes for commuting different places on a weekend very difficult. I can't work in Everett, Mukilteo, Lynnwood because the 331 stops running early and I can't make my connection. How come this is not being addressed? And why is Redmond such a big focus.

Improved travel times for more reliable connections from Bothell and Woodinville to Juanita, Totem Lake, and Kirkland on new Routes 230, 231, and 239 (4), Service every 15 minutes between Juanita and Downtown Kirkland by coordinating staggered schedules on new Routes 230 and 231 (6)


How will these frequency and reliability service improvements affect your transit use?
I will use transit more than I do now


How would moving the future Route 225 in Kenmore to serve new stops along Juanita Drive NE instead of serving the current stops along NE 153rd / NE 155th, and 84th Ave NE impact your transit use?
I will use transit less than I do now


Is there anything else you would like to share about dependability for transit services?
Since you didn't give me a space to give more feedback on the Kenmore 234/225 I will place it here. I feel the route 225 is being pulled to put transit for St. Edward/Bastyr. The thing is - the bus doesn't even get close to it - there is at least a half mile walk up into it. So, the 225 goes from Kenmore, Bastyr, Totem Lake and Overlake. But the 234 (which is improperly stated as low ridership) goes from Kenmore and meets up at Kirkland TC, S Kirkland TC, and Bellevue TC. All of these places in 1 hour. From start to finish - 1 hour - and goes from 1 Park n Ride to THREE other TRANSIT CENTERS! 234 IS AN EFFICIENT ROUTE!!! Also, the 234 goes by Finn Hill school which while not open during summer has a high ridership 10 months out of the year. Oh, and let's not forget that the 234 GOES TO OVERLAKE HOSPITAL!!!

Did you actually plan out a trip to Kirkland TC or to Bellevue TC or to Overlake Hospital with the 225 and see how long it would take to get to these destinations compared to the 234. Also, Overlake is not near many businesses except for Microsoft and possibly Nintendo. Bellevue Transit Center has the City Hall, Bell Square, the many businesses that are in the core of Bellevue and of course, will have LINK LIGHT RAIL!!
To me, that would be the best way to get to the Link in Bellevue - the 234 1 bus direct shot and then get right onto Light Rail.

If I have no choice and Option B is put in place well then I want to make sure that buses are coming more frequently. Also, the buses need to start early enough preferably between 5:30 and 6 am. cause if a person has to transfer buses then they have to plan in case the bus is running late. I always pad my trips by a half hour. Also, you will need to have more frequent times on the 535.


You've got 10 dots to 'spend'. Based on the improvements proposed below to make service more convenient to use, with coordinated transfers, which best address mobility needs and priorities in the north Eastside? (Spend as many or as few dots on each improvement as desired until they are gone)
Schedule revisions to better coordinate transfers between Kenmore and Juanita to transit services on I-405 to Bellevue (2), A weekday Community Ride* service in Kenmore and North Kirkland to serve the Juanita/Finn Hill/Bastyr University area between 7am - 7pm (4), A weekend Community Ride* service in Bothell and Woodinville to serve Downtown Bothell, UW Bothell and the Woodinville Tourist District areas between 10am-8pm (4)


How will these convenience and ease of use service improvements affect your transit use?
I will use transit the same that I do now


What appeals to you about Community Ride? (check all that apply)
The service can come to my neighborhood and pick me up near my home., I can get to locations in the Community Ride service area without transferring., I can book recurring trips in advance., I can use Community Ride to get where I want to go without driving alone., It costs the same thing as regular bus service., Other - It is an AWESOME service for the disabled, elderly and those that don't drive!!!


What concerns do you have about Community Ride? (check all that apply)
It might be inconvenient for me., I don't want to wait for a Community Ride vehicle to arrive., I don't live in the Community Ride service area., I do not understand this service.


How likely are you to try Community Ride?
Very likely


Is there anything else you would like to share about convenience and ease of use for transit services?
There is no place for me to make this comment either so I am placing it here. Please do not let the people in this survey decide if we get the community service options proposed. Please realize that over 70% of the survey responders are most likely people commuting to work or school on the 255. Most of these people drive cars in the evening and on weekends. Also, these are people who would take an Uber instead of using a service they have to depend on and have no real control over.

People like me - disabled, or elderly, or those that don't drive or those that want to go someplace but due to buses ended early can't get home - these programs will be Awesome for us!! It would be great to have a van in Kenmore that goes to Safeway, Rite Aid, the Library, the Post Office and the Food Bank. In the summer, there could be trips to the local parks.. .I have lived in Kenmore for over 6 yrs. The only park I have seen is the Log Boom. Most of the parks are in the residential areas in Kenmore - which has NO BUS SERVICE!! So PLEASE offer these community service options!!


You've got 10 dots to 'spend'. Based on the proposed improved connections to schools and local destinations, which best address mobility needs and priorities in the north Eastside? (Spend as many or as few dots on each improvement as desired until they are gone)
More direct connection between Woodinville Town Center and Downtown Kirkland on Route 231 (2), More direct connection between UW Bothell/Cascadia College and Downtown Kirkland on Route 230 (2), A Community Van* in Kirkland to serve residents south of NE 116th St (6)


How will these access improvements affect your transit use?
I will use transit the same that I do now


Is there anything else you would like to share about access to local destinations for transit services?
The question up about regarding the 225...I didn't put dots there because I do not like that option AT ALL. I want the 234 route to STAY!! The 234 has all of the access points for my local destinations.

In regards to the Community Van in Kirkland I hope it will serve the 120th- cause the Hopelink Food Bank is down that street and it is impossible to take a bus to the food bank and carry items home. If I could take a van that would be most awesome. It would be even better if I could take the Kenmore Van to the Kirkland Food Bank (Hopelink) and back home. Right now, I can only go to the Food Bank if I have someone that is available to drive me. I am currently lucky to have a friend that takes me on her day off.


What appeals to you about Community Van? (check all that apply)
I could save on transportation costs., The Community Transportation Coordinator would coordinate the trip and find a volunteer driver., I could travel to destinations that may not be easy to reach by transit., I could take evening and weekend trips., I could take recurring trips., Other - Honestly, having this option will let me have a life again. I will be able to go out and attend different functions and activities. I also, would be able to take a day trip to a place such as the Tulip festival or the Garden of Lights.


What concerns do you have about Community Van? (check all that apply)
I would not want to rely on a Community Transportation Coordinator., The reservation request process might be inconvenient for me., I would have to schedule trips in advance., I do not understand this service., Other - That there won't be a second person to ride with and so my ride will not be allowed to happen


How likely would you be to try Community Van?
Very likely


Based on the information you have heard about the proposed changes for September 2019, to what degree do you agree or disagree that the needs from the community were addressed?



Overall, how satisfied do you think you would be with Metro services if the September 2019 proposal were implemented?
Very unsatisfied


Is there anything else you would like to share about the September 2019 proposal?
How come there isn't a choice to say how would you feel if everything remained the same (Option A)? I am 100% for Option A. However, I believe this survey is just for procedural purposes and you already know what is being implemented. I will be very unsatisfied if implemented and I don't believe this proposal addresses the needs of individuals who like their commute just as it currently is. I would like to see the community options implemented and that is it. It is not going to be easier for me to get to Kirkland TC, S. Kirkland TC, Overlake Hospital, and Bellevue TC if you take the 234 away. 1 bus took me to all of these places. Under your proposal, it will be 2 or more buses. I also don't see much changes for buses running later in the evenings and I get stuck with 1-hour weekend service. As far as dependability and reliability - well, the more buses you add to a person's trip the less reliable and dependable it is. because instead of 1 bus to worry about now you are worried about the schedule of 1 or 2 other routes. And you know what - the rain here bogs everything up!! And 405 gets like a parking lot.

Please share any additional feedback you have about our outreach process.
I was planning on going to the meeting at the College. However, I was sick that day. I talked to a Metro person who said they went and no one from the public showed up. Apparently there were no signs telling a person where the meeting was and also it was $8 to park at the college. Might I suggest in the future to make it at a library that is bus accessible by the area in question. Also, is there a way for you to do a survey asking the public what times they like the meetings at? Oh, and regarding the community proposals..most people know nothing about them. I would suggest Metro people have a few people outside of Safeway, the Kenmore Library, the Kenmore Park n Ride, and some information flyers at the Kenmore Food Bank. Many people who could use this service may not be your average bus riders. Take it to the people.

Care to share additional information about March 2019 changes, or opportunities to improve connections to light rail, BRT, or local destinations? (Optional)
I use 255 in my daily commute to work and am highly satisfied with the current 255 route. It doesn't make sense to add additional connection and overall increased transit time to reach downtown Seattle from Kirkland. Keep the 255 route as it is by using surface roads. Rerouting 255 to UW is a great blow to downtown Seattle commuters. Changing at UW to light rail would easily add up 20 minutes. More and more cities are trying to give better direct routes to commuters. The proposal is going backwards to remove the current direct access to downtown. I would recommend to keep the existing 255 route to downtown using surface roads and also to add additional buses to SLU.


You've got 10 dots to 'spend'. Based on community mobility priorities, help us decide how much to invest in each priority when making improvements to north Eastside service. (Spend as many or as few dots on each option until they are gone)
Invest in making service to, from, and within the north Eastside reliable and dependable (3), Invest in improving access to homes, workplaces, schools, and other local destinations (3), Invest in offering service more often throughout the day, later into the evening, and every day of the week (1), Invest in adding more flexible and convenient options for riders of different ages and abilities (3)


How will these evening and weekend service improvements affect your transit use?
I have no opinion.


If Route 255 is reoriented to UW Station instead of downtown Seattle, do you support changing Routes 540 and 541 to create a new route that would instead provide direct connections between Overlake, South Kirkland P&R, north Downtown Seattle, and South Lake Union?

Yes


If you do not support changing Routes 540 and 541 if Route 255 is reoriented, please provide feedback on why.
I would recommend to keep the existing 255 route to downtown using surface roads and also to add additional new routes between Overlake, South Kirkland P&R, north Downtown Seattle, and South Lake Union


How will these frequency and reliability service improvements affect your transit use?
I have no opinion

Based on the information you have heard about the proposed changes for September 2019, to what degree do you agree or disagree that the needs from the community were addressed?



Overall, how satisfied do you think you would be with Metro services if the September 2019 proposal were implemented?
Very unsatisfied


Is there anything else you would like to share about the September 2019 proposal?
Keep the existing 255 route as is to Downtown Seattle via Surface Road. Connection via UW to Downtown Seattle is just a hassle for regular commuters like me and would be very unsatisfied with the Metro Services if this is implemented.

This route serves Kirkland as well as Kenmore in its first 4 miles heading south. You do Kirkland residents a great disservice by emphasizing this as a Kenmore route. It is nice to see the ability to get to Totem Lake, which we haven't had since the 935 was discontinued a number of years ago.
