WEST SEATTLE TRANSPORTATION COALITION: 6:30 pm at Neighborhood House’s High Point Center. Agenda’s centerpiece:
Special guest Paulo Nunes-Ueno, the newly hired leader of our city’s new Transit Division within SDOT. We will discuss a variety of topics with him, including:
1. How the new money from the city Proposition 1 will impact West Seattle and South Park.
2. Plans that SDOT’s Transit Division has in mind and in the works to benefit our area.
3. Ideas that can be implemented to increase our local bus performance, including the idea for a dedicated bus-only lane all the way from the Junction to the West Seattle Bridge.
4. What will be the role of City District 1 in having a seat on the Proposition oversight commission, which was required by law in the Proposition 1 measure we passed.
All welcome. (6400 Sylvan Way)
