What is your main mode of transportation? Do you think Seattle is a safe city for bike commuters and pedestrians?
We want to know what you think in advance of Seattle Speaks: Move Seattle?, a live, televised community forum, which will consider the biggest levy in Seattle history — $930 million over nine years to fund transportation projects.
Weigh in now and take the short pre-poll survey.
Seattle Channel host Brian Callanan will lead a discussion with proponents and opponents of the levy, 7 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 29, at Town Hall Seattle, 1119 Eighth Ave.
The Move Seattle transportation levy, paid for through a property tax, replaces the existing Bridging the Gap transportation levy that expires at the end of this year.
Some critics say the proposal is a collection of disconnected projects and question where the levy dollars will go. Supporters say levy investments offer more choices to move people and goods around Seattle safely and affordably and will help the city keep pace with growth.
Admission to Seattle Speaks is free, but advance registration is required. Doors open at 6 p.m. with audience instructions at 6:30 p.m. and the live televised program at 7 p.m. Join the conversation in person or online, where you can take part in polls and voice your opinion via social media and e-mail. Follow the event on social media and use the hashtag #SeattleSpeaks.
Seattle Speaks: Move Seattle? will be broadcast live on Seattle Channel cable 21 (HD on Comcast 321 and Wave 721) and online.
Seattle Speaks is presented by Seattle CityClub, Seattle Channel and Town Hall Seattle. Seattle Speaks is an Emmy Award-winning series that brings together local leaders, critics, stakeholders and residents to deliberate pivotal moments in our city’s history.
