One moment please...

Dear Seattle City Councilmembers,

I care about making every neighborhood in Seattle a great place to walk, bike, and live, but too many important projects are being delayed or watered down. 

That's why I am writing in support of the projects outlined in the Move All Seattle Sustainably (MASS) letter to Mayor Durkan and the Seattle City Council, which outlines specific budget asks as well as calls for leadership on specific projects.

We need elected officials to go beyond general statements of support for transportation and environmental issues, and act now to align our city budget with Seattle's values.

In the 2018 Seattle City Budget, please fund:

  1. Safer intersections. Halt spending on adaptive signals, which prioritize cars over everyone else, until the technology can prioritize people walking and biking.
  2. Traffic Calming. Fund a Home Zone pilot project, using traffic calming to limit and slow traffic on residential streets, particularly in areas with no sidewalks. 
  3. Basic Bike Network. Add additional funding to get people to and from the new Arena and into and through Uptown and South Lake Union, particularly on the Thomas St neighborhood greenway. 
  4. Equitable Street Parks. Restore funding to successful Pavement to Parks projects with an equity focus.
