Thanks to the marvelous outpouring of support for retaining the waterfront streetcar line, I’ve been able to compile a very large list of individuals who feel strongly about the future of our waterfront and, more specifically, saving the legacy created by George Benson- The Waterfront Trolley. You’re receiving this e-mail because your took the time to write me and offer your help. This is the first of what I hope will be a series of messages suggesting ways to let our elected officials know that we value our past and want to preserve elements of it for enjoyment by ourselves and future generations.
On July 12th at 5:30 PM in the Exhibition Hall at the Seattle Center, Waterfrontseattle.org will host a public meeting on the waterfront park plan. The meeting’s theme is “Waterfront into Focus”. As I mentioned to some of you in my individual responses to your letters, I have been told by folks close to the planning team that an alternative transportation plan for the park will be offered that shows a streetcar line in the new Alaskan Way. We need to attend the meeting and voice our support for that option. Without it, there is no future for the Waterfront Trolley!!
Please go on line to waterfrontseattle.org and click on the meeting notice so that you can RSVP. Bring friends and family. Numbers count.
