Jasmine Donovan, Executive Vice President and granddaughter of namesake and co-founder Dick Spady, will be answering questions regarding the fact that Sound Transit has identified the new Dick’sDrive-In Restaurant along with the rest of the Midway Shopping Center as one of few potential sites that may ultimately be acquired to build the south Operations and Maintenance Facility.
The Mayor of Kent along with other South Sound Mayors may be in attendance. Attached is a letter that was sent to the Sound Transit Board of Directors on January 11th, 2019 by Dick’sDrive-Ins.
