Z19Ylly7AW3> Streets for All Seattle


This is our moment.  

Last year, you joined Streets For All Seattle in an ambitious campaign to
achieve our shared goal of making walking, biking and transit the easiest
ways for people to get around Seattle by securing $30 million in dedicated
annual revenue.
After putting the pieces in place to get it done this year, we need your

The City Council has less than three weeks to decide whether or not they are
going to give Seattle voters the opportunity this November to approve a
package of transportation investments that reflects our values and will make
our city work for the future.
Tell the City Council to give us our opportunity to vote for a better
transportation future.

As you probably remember, last year Streets For All Seattle worked closely
with the City Council to create a Transportation Benefit District to fund
pedestrian and bicycle improvements and support basic street maintenance,
and to form the Citizens Transportation Advisory Committee III (CTAC III) to
advise the Council on further transportation priorities.

On July 15th, CTAC III delivered their final funding recommendations to the
Council. CTAC III recommended a package that, if approved by Seattle voters,
would generate approximately $27 million in dedicated annual revenue for
walking, biking and transit infrastructure, along with significant money for
fixing our streets - funded through an $80 annual vehicle license fee.    

It's taken thousands of emails, hundreds of public testimonies, and
uncountable hours of hard work from people like you to get us to this far.
This is our moment. Let's get this done. Let's build a better transportation
future for Seattle.
Tell the City Council to give us our opportunity to vote for a better
transportation future.

Want to do more than email the Council?
Join us at 6pm on Wednesday, August 10th at a Seattle Transportation Benefit
District Public Hearing and tell the Council in person that Seattle voters
deserve the opportunity this November to vote for a better transportation

Thank you for everything that you do,

Craig M. Benjamin and Brice Maryman
