Sound Transit’s next light rail system extension will happen in 2021, with new stations opening in the University District, Roosevelt neighborhood, and Northgate. Existing light rail stations already exist, from the newly opened UW Stadium station down to Sea-Tac Airport. When a light rail station opens, it means some big changes will be occurring in the immediate neighborhood, usually in the form of new residential and commercial development.
This program invites middle school and high school students to imagine the future of a neighborhood facing these types of changes: What should stay the same? What might be different? How can we make sure everyone feels welcome? Students will discuss these issues with practicing urban planners and designers, and then represent their own ideas through sketches, three-dimensional models, and presentations. This program will last 4 hours, and students are encouraged to pack a lunch.
