Transportation Choices Coalition – Center City Connector Community Meeting

Friday Sep. 6, 2013,       12-1:00 PM
      Room 121
King County Chinook Building
401 5th Ave., Seattle

Downtown Seattle is changing and growing. In the next 20 years,     downtown jobs and residents are expected to grow by more than 50 percent.     With bumper-to-bumper car traffic and 700 local and regional buses running     through downtown each rush hour, the City of Seattle is committed to     introducing higher capacity transit service that will improve north-south     mobility and connect the South Lake Union and First Hill streetcar lines. Seattle’s Department of Transportation received a federal     grant to plan for high-capacity transit options and alignments for this     “Center City Connector.”

Spoiler alert: It’s looking good for a streetcar on First Avenue!

Join Transportation Choices Coalition and our expert     panelists for a discussion on the Center City Connector – how SDOT came to     its recommendations, funding options for the streetcar, and what the     impacts on local businesses might be. Plus, learn more about how you can     get involved as the process moves forward.

Panelists include:

Tony Mazzella, Seattle Department of     Transportation

Bill LaBorde, Office of Seattle     City Councilmember Tom Rasmussen

Ben Franz-Knight, Pike Place Market     Preservation & Development Authority

Shefali Ranganathan
Director of Programs
