TUESDAY: CM’s Clark & Harrell to Attend Joint Othello/Lakewood Seward Park Community Meeting

The community is invited to join the Othello Neighborhood Association and Lakewood Seward Park Community Club for a joint meeting this week on road diets, combined sewer overflow projects, bridging-the-gap funding and more:

We’ll start with neighbor Michael Murphy briefly introducing the Climate Coop Initiative. Then, resident City Council Members Bruce Harrell and Sally Clark will explain recent budgeting decisions in light of the economic situation, and will take questions in a Town Hall fashion with our President Tom Acker and co-host Othello Neighborhood Association’s Chair Jenna Walden serving as moderators.

The meeting is this Tues., Nov. 16, at 7 pm at the Lakewood Seward Park Clubhouse (4916 S. Angeline St.).

  1. On the ride to work this morning I saw 87 cars and one bike. Why should this very small minority have half of each street dedicated to them? Even on Saturday and Sunday, if the weather is good, the number of autos to bikes is about 10 to 1.

    Autos must be licensed and pay state taxes to fuel. Bikes pay nothing.

    You only saw 87 cars?
    Even if the weather is good I’d say it’s more like 100 to 1
    (unless you are on Lake Washington Blvd. where cars are not allowed)

  3. And what is the “climate coop initiative”?

    It also seems like an out of the way place to have a meeting that you don’t want people to drive to.

  4. @2: “Autos must be licensed and pay state taxes to fuel. Bikes pay nothing.”
    You and your fellow haters can repeat this ad nauseum, but bike riders pay property taxes and, if they also own a car, they pay licensing and gas taxes (which are actually a tiny percentage of how roads get funded anyway). Check it (and yourself) here.

  5. @Mark B – I don’t see where in the meeting agenda that the Lakewood Seward Park meeting was pro bike or pro car or pro pedestrian. The meeting was at a community center in the community that it serves. Many people walk to the meetings – curious that you say it is out of the way.

  6. With the climate coop initiative and road diets on the table it just seemed like a leave your car at home day.
