News roundup: Pronto, SODO, housing

Yesterday’s vote to buy out the ailing Pronto bike-share system tops the news this morning, but the SODO Arena hearings today take up a lot of column-inches as well.

Seattle Times, KPLU, MyNorthwest,  KING5, The Stranger, Curbed, Crosscut, GeekWire, Q13, and basically everyone else who has a keyboard (me too) reports on the City Council’s vote yesterday to buy out the assets of the Pronto bike-share system and manage it directly.

Crosscut, MyNorthwest, Seattle P-I, KING5 and KIRO7 report on today’s hearings on the request to vacate two blocks of Occidental Avenue to allow for the construction of the SODO Arena,  and voices coming out both supporting and opposing the arena.

MyNorthwest discusses yesterday’s Council hearings on the housing market as it contemplates the 2016 Housing Levy.
