Council member Debora Juarez’s Parks, Seattle Center, Libraries and Waterfront Committee had two items on its agenda this morning, and neither went as one might expect.
The big news this morning is Mayor Ed Murray’s proposal to double the housing levy.
Council member Sally Bagshaw has called a special meeting of her Human Services and Public Health Committee for Friday morning to consider releasing funds designated for addressing the homeless crisis.
The Council heard an update on how the Multi-Family Tax Exemption (MFTE) is doing today, and it was full of lessons on what an economic incentive sometimes can — and sometimes can’t — achieve.
This morning we’re talking about bikes, buses, construction, and living on the streets of Seattle.
Today the Council discussed what to do about the ailing Pronto bike share program.
Two news items this morning raking in coverage: the fate of the pilot bike-share program, and (finally) a vote scheduled for the street vacation required to build the new SODO Arena.
Last week the proposed 2016 work plan for Council member Gonzalez’s Gender Equity, Safe Communities and New Americans Committee was presented for review.
The big news this morning (well, besides Russell Wilson in the Pro Bowl) is the upcoming Council deliberations on what to do with Pronto, the money-losing bike share program.
There’s lots of transportation-related legislation in front of the City Council this week. Plus a few other nuggets as the Council settles down to work. (UPDATES BELOW)
