public safety

start thinking about licensing bicycles, all bike riders should have to have a course on traffic laws in order to get a license or an endorsdment fo teir driers license-- all bike riders should have to have a bike license on their bike , say 20 dollars a year for those over 18 and 5 dollars a year for those from 13 to 18 and under 13, no fee but have to register and get a license plate on the bike. The bike clubs could ...more »

CANCEL CITY FUNDED ART PROJECTS UNTIL ECONOMY IMPROVES

Cancel all city funded art projects. In a recession all unneeded items should be cut prior to laying off employees or anything else. Art is a "want" not a "need". You should cut the projects in a recession and reactivate when the economy improves.

SAVE THE QUEEN ANNE COMMUNITY CENTER GYM!

Give BizKid$ a permanent home by renting them under-utilized space at Seattle Center. A vital community center gym is NOT an appropriate venue for such an enterprise. In fact, it's an outrage that it would even be considered. Retain our gym for children, the elderly and families, not for commercial uses that would displace folks from every part of our community.

Art As Citizen Journalism, Public Access, Gov. Channel

I suggest you...continue to fund the arts, 1% of the arts on some level. In the diminishing era of less news coverage, public access and community journalism becomes increasingly more important to tell the stories of what is happening in people's lives. Fund vehicles that help to tell these stories and help to share the news to those for whom English is not the primary language. The Seattle Channel should focus more ...more »

Keep SCAN alive!

Please do not eliminate SCAN. It is a vitalr resource for those who would not otherwise have access to the media. Taking SCAN away would be silencing the voices of our community. Keep funding for SCAN!

Dr. Larry Faris and Janice Faris

We expect that the part of our cable bill which is for Community Access TV continue to be used for that purpose. Please do not fail to fund SCAN TV. We live outside the area where it is received but continue to enjoy the live programs via our computer. We were very disappointed that Comcast does not offer it in our Renton neighborhood.

Inside/Outside Bonding

By cutting approximately $76,000 from the Cultural Facilities Budget Control Level (which is a part of the Seattle Center budget), we can have a push to better connect events that are hosted outside with the Center House, which would give the Center House more revenue, therefore making up a portion, if not all, of this budget cut. It is important that we create the sense that all of the Seattle Center is connected, and ...more »

Stop Road Diet; keep QA center open

Stop the so-called road diet program, a controversial program that is not needed. Don't cut funding for the QA community gym, which is the community center for the Hill. I can't think of a dumber idea, other than the street diet on 125th.

NO MORE MIKE LANES NECESSARY

Impose a licensing fee for all bicyclists who want to use the bike lanes. Why shouldn't they have to pay for the improvements? If the majority of us don;t use a bike, why should we be forced to pay for their ride??? License all bike riders who use the bike lanes. That would pay for the improvements...kind of like a toll road!! If they want the bike lane, let them pay for it. DO NOT TAX THE PEOPLE OF SEATTLE for silliness ...more »

Library Services are Not merely "bourgeois" institutions!

It does not make sense to cut the library system's budget further. The library provides a great return on each dollar in elevating the poor, the illiterate, the failing student population and other underserved groups -- providing a pathway into success within our democratic values based society. Some middle class individuals and groups see the Seattle Public Library as a needless luxury -- but it has served in raising ...more »
