You can still pick up a copy of last week’s Real Change today to read a story I wrote about Streets for All Seattle (or you can read it online):
The environmental movement is rarely accused of being united. Inevitably, it seems, different environmentally-minded groups will end up on different sides of an issue, both claiming to have the solution that is better for the environment.
The biggest such issue in Seattle today is the Highway 99 deep-bore tunnel, but there are other vital transportation issues in Seattle that need the attention of citizen groups.
That’s why a wide coalition of local organizations has come together to form Streets for All to push for $30 million in annual funding for bicycle, pedestrian and transit infrastructure projects. The city now has bicycle and pedestrian master plans, but Streets for All is encouraging the city to fund the plans and make them happen.
