Join us!

Community involvement is an important part of this project. Throughout the environmental study phase, the project team has already been reaching out to the public in a variety of ways.

As we move forward, we will be looking to the community to help shape the project and the new connections. We invite and encourage you to join us in these conversations, get involved, and provide your input. Sign up for project email updates and keep checking the website for new information.


Upcoming Events

The findings of the environmental study will be published in early 2019, followed by a 30-day public comment period. During the comment period, we encourage you to provide your feedback on this website or through an online open house or in-person open house.

Check back for early 2019 online open house and in-person open house dates!
