Open Space Seattle:2100

Transportation? How great for open space?

With the Mayor looking to do several transportation projects in the city, we thought it might be useful to highlight the upcoming open houses since so many of the projects from the Green Future's Charrette dealth with streetscape improvements. So please share your thoughts with the Mayor starting, today:

The city plans to hold five public meetings on a possible November vote on taxes to pay for transportation needs. Each of the city's transportation "open houses" runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., including a formal presentation that begins at 7 p.m.

  • Thursday, March 16: Garfield Community Center, 2323 E. Cherry St.
  • Monday, March 20: NewHolly Gathering Hall, 7054 32nd Ave. S.
  • Tuesday, March 28: Olympic View Elementary School, 504 N.E. 95th St.
  • Wednesday, March 29: West Seattle High School, 3000 California Ave. S.W.
  • Tuesday, April 4: Ballard High School, 1418 N.W. 65th St.

Meeting rooms are ADA accessible. For interpretation services call 206-684-8297.

Get more details.

WHAT'S UNDECIDED

  • How much people in Seattle will be asked to pay in new taxes.
  • What types of taxes would be proposed -- property taxes, or other taxes and fees linked to transportation, or some combination.
  • Whether any tax package will be linked to the viaduct project.
