Pardon the late notice but thought you'd want to know that the community is encouraged to attend the Bridging the Gap Levy Oversight Committee meeting today, Tues., Oct. 21, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Rainier Community Center (4600 38th Ave. S.).

Bridging the Gap is a nine-year, $365 million levy that addresses twenty years of deferred maintenance caused by chronic under-funding of the transportation infrastructure. Approved by voters in 2006, Bridging the Gap enables much-needed work by the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), such as roadway paving, sidewalk development and repair, bridge upkeep, and tree pruning and planting. It also supports the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plans, the Safe Routes to School program, enhanced transit connections and large Neighborhood Street Fund projects.

The work of the city is supported by an appointed citizens’ Levy Oversight Committee that meets quarterly. This 15-member body (see members below) monitors revenues and expenditures, and reviews program and project schedules to provide full accountability to voters on Bridging the Gap activities.

Today's meeting will begin with a public comment period, followed by a presentation specific to Southeast Seattle, 3rd Quarter 2008 Report, BTG Program Budget Update, 2009 – 2010 Work Plan Schedule, Transit Partnership and Corridor Project Update and more.

The group's next meeting is scheduled for Jan. 20, 2009.
