Thank You for your support of walking and biking in the 2021 Budget!
Dear Seattle City Council,
THANK YOU for your support of critical walking and biking projects in the 2021 Seattle City Budget!
I am especially grateful for:
Georgetown to South Park Trail: $5.2 million to fully fund this vital, long-awaited connection.
Sidewalk repair in Rainier Ave corridor: $943,000 to fund sidewalk repair and other pedestrian improvements in the Rainier Ave corridor.
Safe Routes to School Funding: $9 million to backfill revenue lost due to COVID closures.
- South End Bike Routes: $400,000 for continued planning for south end bike routes including a Georgetown-Downtown connection through SODO and a feasibility study of MLK south of the Mount Baker Light Rail Station.
These are big wins for critical mobility and transportation projects around Seattle, but we have a lot more work to do: I support the #SolidarityBudget that Seattleites have been in the streets since May to demand, and look forward to continuing to work with you to further defund the police.
Thank you to Councilmember Morales for championing many of these vital projects and to all the other councilmembers who co-sponsored and voted in favor of them.
