Improve east/west travel in Seattle and Puget Sound. You can go north/south, but it is extremely difficult to go east/west in crosstown traffic. This wastes an enormous amount of time and fossil fuel in the PNW.

Market-based parking rates on public land

Parking would remain free or very low cost in less dense neighborhoods where the market rate is close to $0. It would be higher in dense areas like downtown, Capitol Hill, and Belltown. Businesses would not be hurt because parking costs would be based on what the market will ...more »
