Proposition 1: Streets for All: Vote YES (Local Proposition, Seattle)
Posted on September 30, 2011 - 1:46pm
The Sierra Club heartily endorses Seattle Proposition 1 on this fall's ballot. This measure is sponsored by the Streets For All Seattle coalition (of which the Club is a founding member), and would provide a dependable source of much needed revenue to fund important improvements in our city's transit, roads, and bike/pedestrian infrastructure. By approving this package, Seattle has a chance to make tangible and immediate progress toward improving our ability to move around the city safely, affordably, and efficiently. Faster transit, safer streets, improvements to sidewalks and crossings, better bike infrastructure - all of these things help us reduce our dependency on cars and improve the quality of life in Seattle. The time to make this investment is now. Vote YES on Proposition 1.
