Oct. 18 Broadview Community Council Meeting : Funding Better, Safer Streets
Would you like better street pavement, sidewalks, and transit and bicycle facilities? That’s what Seattle’s Proposition 1 is about. At the next Broadview Community Council meeting on October 18 we will discuss the opportunity you have to bring them about via Proposition 1.
A couple years ago the State Legislature allowed local jurisdictions to create a Transportation Benefit District that can raise revenue for transportation, which Seattle did last year. Now in response to the deteriorating conditions of our streets and the need to improve transit, pedestrian and bicycle facilities the Seattle City Council has proposed a $60 car tab fee, known as Proposition 1. Voters will decide in the November election whether the funding proposed by Proposition 1 will be approved.
At the October 18 Broadview Community Council meeting a panel will discuss what the new car tab funding will be used for, and answer audience questions. Come and hear about what you will get for your money. The meeting is at Luther Memorial Church, 13247 Greenwood Ave. N, at 7:00 PM on Tuesday October 18, 2011.
