More on the Showbox.
We’re talking about the Showbox this morning. Also, does Seattle need a “night mayor?”
The Council got a briefing this afternoon on a set of emerging mobility technologies. Get ready to change the way you think about streets, sidewalks, and even bike lanes.
Also, expect the city to roll out an e-scooter pilot in the near future.
Last week the Council got a briefing from Seattle Public Utilities and Zero Waste Washington on what’s going on with recycling in Seattle. Despite strong support for recycling here, there are some substantial challenges.
Lots of election reporting this morning.
The Council has several oars in the water at the moment. Here’s what’s up.
A quiet start to the local news week.
Last Friday, All Home King County released the results of the annual “Point in Time” count of homeless people. Its press release headlined the first decrease in homelessness in the county since 2012. The local media hopped on that headline, as did Mayor Durkan in her weekly “Durkan Digest” email newsletter to constituents.
After spending three days going through the report, I have come to the conclusion that not only is there little reason to believe the claim that homelessness decreased in King County, but there are good reasons to view much of the data in the report with great skepticism.
It’s the first week of June! Here’s what the Council is up to this week.
Short and sweet to end the week.
