No more suggest traffic speed signs!

Immediately stop any further funding or future installation of those ridiculous new lighted signs that supposed regulate traffic speeds on I-5. The first time I saw them, all northbound lanes were inching along at about 3-5 mph and the signs were brightly lit, indicating we should be going 45. The next time I drove up the same stretch -- just south of downtown Seattle -- it was the same ridiculousness, The lit indicated... more »

Expand Light Rail

Capitol Hill, U-District, West Seattle, Ballard, Fremont, {insert your neighborhood here}. If we want to get serious about helping people get around town more easily without cars and encourage more density and less sprawl all while generating revenue and fostering sustainability... this is it.

Disabled Parking Benefits

I suggest you...end the current benefit to disabled drivers, providing them with free parking on the streets of Seattle. The abuse is rampant and many street spaces are full of disabled placards which stay all day while they work and prevent others from using these popular short-term stalls in the city's core....not really a new idea, perhaps even limit their free parking to two hours so the spaces are avialable to other... more »

No more "road diets"

Quit spending precious SDOT funds eliminating road capacity on arterials for "road diets" and bike lanes. Not to mention all the money saved by eliminating all the studies and public meetings associated with these "road diets." Our limited resources should go towards maintaining our crumbling roads, not reducing capacity in a growing city!

Expand parking meter days/hours

I suggest you extend parking meter days to include Sunday (coordinated with improved Metro service, of course) and consider extending the parking meter day from 9 am - 6 pm to 8 am - 7 pm.

Registration fee for bike commuters

Implement a bike registration fee for bike commuters. We are spending money to create special lanes (road diets, etc.) Why not have everyone pay to use, not just motor vehicle drivers.

Increase the gas tax

SDOT spent $29 million on arterial paving last year (still not enough, most drivers would agree), yet only 0.44% of this was directly funded by users through the gas tax - most of this money came from bonds. Increase the gas tax to pay for more of Seattle's roads and other needs.

MVET for light rail

Implement a 2 - 5% MVET on vehicles registered in city limits to pay for expansion of light rail to connect the neighborhoods. Base the tax on vehicle fuel efficiency: the lower the efficiency, the higher the tax. Implement a 2% MVET for commercial vehicles, regardless of efficiency.

Verd1n

The Sea-Wall replacement/refurbishment project is a local project benefiting only the central business district (CBD). Accordingly, the property owners in the CBD should be fully responsible for any project that protects and preserves their property. I had to build and repair the lake bulkhead on my property that supports my home and, of note, Rainier Avenue S. If I have to repair my bulkhead, then property owners... more »
