WSF to host community meeting on Bainbridge

Officials with Washington State Ferries will visit Bainbridge Island next month as part of a series of community outreach meetings.

WSF said the meetings will focus on the impacts of the state's 2013-2015 transportation budget, as well as ferry system performance measures and liquefied natural gas as a source of ferry fuel.

The meetings will also include an update on the construction of new vessels, and attendees will be able to bring up route-specific issues.

“I look forward to visiting the communities and hearing directly from our riders on the issues that affect their everyday travels,” said David Moseley, the state Department of Transportation's assistant secretary for the ferries division. “I always find this feedback valuable and it helps us when we consider making changes to the system.”

The meetings will be held during a two-week period in June, and the series will start in Clinton on Whidbey Island on June 5.

The Bainbridge meeting is 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 11 in Huney Hall at the Waterfront Park Community Center.

The other meetings are Thursday, June 6, Bremerton (Kitsap Conference Center Oyster Room, 100 Washington St.); Monday, June 10, Kingston (Kingston Community Center, 11212 Highway 104); Tuesday, June 11, Coupeville (Coupeville Library, 788 NW Alexander St.); Wednesday, June 12 in Friday Harbor, San Juan Islands (San Juan County Council Chambers, 55 Second St.); Monday, June 17, Port Townsend (Cotton Building

607 Water St.); and Tuesday, June 18, Vashon Island (McMurray Middle School, 9329 SW Cemetery Road).

WSF will post meeting materials on its community meetings page closer to the meeting dates.
