Opportunity for Public Input to Proposed Transportation Levy

In March 2015, Mayor Ed Murray introduced a proposal for a nine-year, $900 million levy to replace the existing Bridging the Gap levy that expires at the end of 2015. The Transportation Levy to Move Seattle proposal focuses on taking care of the basics, maintaining our streets, bridges, and sidewalks, while also investing in the future with improvements that give us more transportation choices to move more people and goods in and around our growing city.

 

Prior to finalizing the proposal, the City is encouraging the public to provide input and be a part of shaping Seattle’s transportation future. There are a few ways to get involved:

 

  1. Learn about the levy at http://www.seattle.gov/transportation/levytomoveseattle.htm

 

  1. Take the survey to share your transportation priorities at http://www.moveseattlesurvey.com/
