I support Vision Zero and the Solidarity Budget!

Dear Seattle City Councilmembers,

Thank you for reviewing the mayor's transportation budget and making improvements to better match our city's goals around equity, safety, affordability, climate stability, and health. Please support the following budget priorities: 

  • Vision Zero: Increase funding for our Vision Zero program, which has strong equity and safety prioritizations. I support both the Mayor's Vehicle Licsensing Fee spend plan proposal, and the idea to increase the Commercial Parking Tax to fund Vision Zero.  
  • Solidarity Budget: Defund the Seattle Police Department and reinvest in communities.

Specifically, please support proposed amendments for:

  1. Safe Places to Walk: Increase funding for sidewalk construction along critical transit corridors and Home Zones for non-arterial neighborhoods, improving safety and access for disabled people, elders, and others.
  2. Prioritize South End Investments: Including park space for people on Lake Washington Boulevard and street safety on Martin Luther King Way South. 
  3. Remove Data Collection from the Police: Ask SDOT to analyze what it would take to collect street safety and crash data in order to move this work away from the Seattle Police Department.
  4. Smart Planning: Demand accountability for the "Citywide Integrated Transportation Plan," which may undercut efforts to make safer streets.
