VOTE 'YES' ON PROPOSITION 1, THE LET'S MOVE SEATTLE LEVY

On your ballot this fall, Seattle voters have an opportunity to create a less congested, safer and more modern transportation system by voting 'yes' on Seattle Proposition 1.

Proposition 1, the Let's Move Seattle levy, is a bold and much-needed investment in transit, safety and fixing what we have. Transportation is critical for access to jobs and opportunity in our growing city. It's also the second highest cost after housing in a family budget.

The Let's Move Seattle levy is designed to improve our transportation system in three strategic ways: First, relieving congestion - People are tired of waiting. We all know the experience of sitting in a car or bus stuck in traffic. The Let's Move Seattle Levy prioritizes improving transit connections and enhancing the speed and reliability of our existing transit systems. As Seattle grows - we're projected to add another 120,000 residents in the next two decades - those sorts of important changes cannot wait.

The levy funds seven new RapidRide+ transit corridors to connect all of our Seattle neighborhoods with fast, reliable, and efficient transit service. It also makes investments in light rail access by providing levy dollars for a new Graham Street Station, the Accessible Mt. Baker project, and a pedestrian bridge over I-5 at the future Northgate Station.

Second, this levy focuses on safety - The levy makes targeted investments to improve transportation safety across the city, and will help us reach our goal of zero traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030. It funds corridor safety projects in high-crash areas and Safe Routes to Schools projects each year, prioritized by those schools in low-income neighborhoods. And thanks to new low-cost sidewalk construction, the levy will fund 250 blocks of new sidewalk in neighborhoods where there are not currently any.

Third, Let's Move Seattle prioritizes taking care of what we have. Seattle faces a growing list of needed transportation work. The Let's Move Seattle levy will help us to address our maintenance responsibilities by investing in 16 of our most seismically vulnerable bridges. It funds repairing sidewalks and repaving our busiest streets, including up to 180 miles of Seattle's arterials, addressing 35 percent of Seattle's busiest streets, as well as repaving 65 targeted locations across the city annually.

Let's Move Seattle replaces the expiring Bridging the Gap levy. It does expand on the expiring levy, because our transportation needs are so great, but the typical Seattle homeowner will only pay about $12 more a month over what they are currently paying for the Bridging the Gap levy.

We are endorsing a 'yes' vote on Seattle Proposition 1 on your ballot and encourage you to support these much-needed investments in more transit options, safety for our kids and better streets for all. Vote 'yes' on Prop. 1.
