We 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 Seattle Neighborhood Greenways is leading the charge as part of a new transportation alliance Move All Seattle Sustainably (MASS). We're calling on the Mayor and City Council to go beyond general statements of support for transportation and environmental issues, and act now to align our city budget with Seattle's values.
Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, backed by the MASS alliance, has four main city budget priorities this year:
- Safer Intersections. Halt spending on adaptive signals, which prioritize cars over everyone else, until the technology can prioritize people walking and biking.
- Traffic Calming. Fund a Home Zone pilot project, using diverters and traffic calming to limit and slow traffic on residential streets, particularly in areas with no sidewalks.
- Basic Bike Network. Add additional funding to get people to and from the new Arena and into and through Uptown and South Lake Union.
- Equitable Street Parks. Restore funding to successful Pavement to Parks projects with an equity focus.
Act now to ask City Council to support these priorities, and join us on Wednesday, October 24 at 2:00 pm at the Transportation Committee Budget Hearing. Public comment is at the end of the meeting, likely around 4:00 pm.
Thank you for your continued advocacy!
