Moving Forward or in Reverse?

A Dialogue with SDOT Director Peter Hahn

Part of Director Hahn’s vision for Seattle’s transportation department includes building neighborhoods. How can this happen with diminishing funds for the Neighborhood Street Fund and the increasing limited role for the involvement of neighborhoods? How can SDOT work to reduce the maintenance backlog to avoid higher costs in the future? These are just a few issues confronting Seattle’s new SDOT Director. Bring your questions for Director Hahn.

The April meeting will also include our monthly Round Robin of issues in your neighborhood. It is your opportunity to brief our citywide membership about what you are working on and to share perceptions on what is going right and what isn’t with our city government.

If you have informational materials you would like distributed at the meeting, please email electronic copies or links to Jeannie Hale at jeannieh@serv.net.
