One moment please...

Dear Seattle City Councilmembers,

I urge you to fully fund the implementation of the Thomas Street Plan as part of your current budget deliberations. The reconnection of the street grid across Highway 99 at Thomas St presents a once in a lifetime opportunity to improve the streets in this area into a public space amenity of city-wide significance. We have a limited window of time to design and construct in a boldly and city defining way before imminent development inhibits these possibilities.

Given the commercial and residential growth of this part of the center city, and the millions of visitors from near and far it attracts each year, we strongly believe this is a project that will benefit all Seattlites and visitors providing:

  • A long suppressed east-west connection with the only planned all ages and abilities biking route between them.
  • A connected civic corridor for residents, businesses and over  18 million annual visitors directly to Seattle Center .
  • A better option for thousands of people getting off buses on 7th Ave and the Streetcar to walk and bike to the new Arena via Thomas St for the 250 events per year.

Please fully fund the implementation of the Thomas Street Plan.

Thank you,
