City Council Agenda
Meeting Date: 05/07/2013  
Subject:    Resolution authorizing new Pierce Transit bus stop requests - 5th St SW, south of W Pioneer
Presenter: Mark Palmer
Department: Development Services  

Information
Recommended Action
Approve a resolution authorizing two new Pierce Transit stops along the east and west side of 5th Street SW, approximately 120 feet south of West Pioneer.
Background
The City has received a request from Pierce Transit that it be allowed to add two new Pierce Transit stops along the east and west side of 5th Street SW to serve Route 400 northbound and southbound commuters.  Pierce Transit has received a request from a frequent commuter to install additional stops as the next closest stop is at the train station, more than 3,000 feet to the north.
Previous Actions (Discussions/Presentations)
Pierce Transit originally requested stop locations north of West Pioneer; however, staff expressed concerns regarding potential negative impacts to adjacent commercial properties.  Pierce Transit then researched the two locations to the south of West Pioneer and, at the request of staff, sent notices to the adjoining property owners regarding their plans. No adverse comments were received from the adjoining property owners.
Summary of Proposal
Approve the resolution allowing Pierce Transit to install two new bus stops on 5th Street SW, approximately 120 feet south of West Pioneer.
Alternatives/Options
City staff reviewed alternative locations in this immediate vicinity and concluded that the proposed locations are acceptable.

The City Council has the alternative to deny Pierce Transit's request.
