Testifying to Washington State Ferry Representatives at the publichearing, that the "Seattle Waterfront Re-development Project", that the city is undertaking, has tremendous opportunity in enhance and improve transportation systems and passenger rail services while increase the overall lifestyle of king county citizens and community economic development in tourism and travel opportunities.
Part of the testimony was dedicated to proposals that the "Colman Dock" and "Pier 48"become state-of-arts " Regional Transportation Center" providing downtown city parking facility, bus connection for metro, grayhound, tour-bus, school-bus, taxi, street cars and passenger loading facilities in joint passenger small craft-ship-ferry-rail terminal complex design engineering development project. The Colman Dock would utilize engineering design applications for "below-seabed to above-surface"structure (for perpose of examples: 10 story build, with seven stories below seabed), with ferry vehicle "access and exits" to the proposed tunnel project, including vehicle access to street levelentryy to downtown business district. "Pier 48 Project" would be re-developed to accommodate the "Ship-Rail Passenger Industry" with railway access to dock-side terminal operations from north-south approach along the "waterfront "green-belt" surface park, that would accommodate various classes of railway passenger trains.
The Project could include the exist proposals, for retail merchants, hotel and entertainment facilities, that would enhance the overall pedestrian-auto-bus-ship-ferry-rail passenger transportation services, for successfull project determination cost effectiveness and project funding returns on investments. Besides the Short and Long Term Planning of waterfront utilization for major events and citizens access to waterfront sites and transportational services.
Such re-development project would utilize, not 2 federal agencies (currently projected), but all transportation agencies in a cooperative partnership, that would include various public and private development funding partnership. As the current Viaduct-Seawall-Ferry and Passenger Ship-Rail project are not unified, nor sharing project determination , but rather independent of each other, demanding taxpayer to pay for projects and waste of resource do to ineffective planning and limited overall utilization of waterfront.
