Can two minutes of your time secure millions of dollars for safe streets? It's not as crazy as it sounds. The Seattle City Council will pass a budget this fall, and by showing up to a meeting and speaking for just two minutes, you can help ensure that our City will fund a future of safe streets for you, your family, and your community.
With your help, Seattle adopted a Bicycle Master Plan last spring that promised all families in Seattle would live near (within 1/4 mile of) a safe street for walking and biking by 2034. But funding for this goal is far from secured. A plan without funding is just a dream — let's make it a reality!
Now is the time to tell Seattle City Council why safe streets are a priority — for you, your family, your community, and our city's budget. The best way to be heard is to tell the City Council in person at one of 21 City Council meetings on the budget in October and November You can see the available dates and times on this calendar. We'd like up to three people to sign up for a given slot. No experience is necessary, and we will help you with all the details. Email email@example.com for more information. Thank you!
