Remember the ‘transportation problem’ question? Now, a followup

One month ago, on behalf of the West Seattle Chamber of Commerce, we asked for your thoughts on priorities for West Seattle’s transportation future – what’s the #1 problem to solve here? Some have since asked, where do the resulting 70+ answers go next? Here’s one place: The Citizens Transportation Advisory Committee is coming to West Seattle for a public workshop next Monday (May 23; one of three citywide), with the City Council’s Transportation Committee chair Tom Rasmussen on hand . 5:30-7:30 pm at Southwest Library‘s meeting room (35th/Henderson) – the first half-hour is an open house, followed by half an hour of presentations with SDOT director Peter Hahn participating, and then an hour of small-group discussions. If you can’t go, here’s an online survey you can take. (P.S. The committee got results of a phone survey at its meeting last week. “Southwest Seattle” participants said our biggest problem is potholes/bad roads. We found that in its document library, which you can browse here.)

    The problem with these surveys is that it is so easy to see what their agenda is.

    ces, did you take the survey? I just did, and I thought the only obvious agenda was: SDOT doesn’t have unlimited money and wants to know a) what you’d like their priorities to be and b) would you be willing to pay higher taxes to pay for transportation improvements. I certainly didn’t see any evidence of puppet-master “Mayor McSchwinn’s” war on cars. But then I love Mike McGinn and fully support the war on cars, so maybe I couldn’t see the forest for the trees…

Sorry, comment time is over.
