Mayoral candidates compete for Seattle
Ideas for city improvement
Seattle mayoral candidates: Where is Seattle’s vision?
Seattle could be improved in many ways. The present mayor’s vision for Seattle has been limited to improved bicycle features and seawall repair.
The new candidates have said little about how Seattle can be improved. Here are some ideas: Upgrade the waterfront to attract more people to Seattle and the area — we have a once-in-a-lifetime chance for great change with removal of Alaskan Way Viaduct.
Seattle is and has been the “Gateway to Alaska.” Build on this subject: incorporate a waterfront-to-Seattle Center skylift, build a covered maritime museum.
Clean streets and roads. Complete the Burke-Gillman Trail. Get more cruise ship docking closer to Seattle. Improve Ballard Locks parking.
Let’s hear more from the mayoral candidates!
