Washington State Ferries Long Range Plan 2040 Open House

posted: 05 Sep 2018

On Monday, September 17th from 5-7 pm at the Fauntleroy Church (9140 California Avenue SW) Washington State Ferries will hold an open house to introduce a draft of the Long Range Plan.

Washington State Ferries (WSF) will release the Draft Long Range Plan for a 45-day public comment period and hold a second round of community meetings in Fall 2018. Come to an open house (pdf 718.04 kb) to review and comment on the Draft Plan

This plan projects a 37% increase in Fauntleroy/Southwroth riders by 2040, and a 19% increase in Vashon/Fauntleroy riders. The plan also appears to include enhancements to the Fauntleroy Ferry Dock and Terminal, and vessel replacement among other things.

Subject: Letter of Comment regarding ADU DEIS issued May 10, 2018

The Fauntleroy Community Association (FCA) supports land use policies that:

  • retain the character of our Fauntleroy neighborhood and businesses,
  • provide for affordable housing, with fair allocations for growth and density,
  • concurrently develop infrastructure, including transit, utilities, green spaces, parks & other amenities to serve our growing community and promote urban livability.

Founded in 1980, the Fauntleroy Community Association has historically dealt with traffic, parking, pollution, and other topics related to the existence of the ferry dock in our community. Over the years, our activities have expanded to include restoration of salmon habitat in Fauntleroy Creek and Cove, local parks and playgrounds, crime and public safety, and traffic issues as they affect all of West Seattle, including involvement in transportation-related committees and meetings, and providing flags for the crosswalks. We support Fauntleroy small businesses, and have purchased and planted containers for the business district. We sponsor two local festivals — the spring Food Fest draws hundreds of attendees, the Fall Festival draws nearly 3,000 — and we issue quarterly newsletters for 400 member households, businesses and supporters. The community finds enough value in the FCA that they are willing to pay annual dues to maintain and further these activities.
