2023 Seattle City Budget
Advocates like you rallied across Seattle, giving public comments and writing to elected officials to push for a city budget that aligns with your values and priorities. On Nov 29, City Council finalized the 2023 Seattle City Budget, which includes both wins and setbacks for people walking, rolling, and biking.
3 Big Wins:
- Vision Zero budget increases to $8M.
- Increased funds for new sidewalk construction, protected bike lanes, and school safety improvements.
- Better bike lanes for South Seattle.
School Zone Speed Cameras Doubled (upside & downside)
- Parking Enforcement Officers return to SPD after one year in SDOT.
- Decreased funding for ADA accessibility and Sidewalk Maintenance.
- Cuts to transit service and reliability.
Thank you for your continued advocacy! We continue to push for our safety, equity, and climate goals to be reflected in the Seattle City Budget.
Whose Streets? Our Streets!
Whose Streets? Our Streets! (WSOS) is a BIPOC workgroup, formed in July 2020 by Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, advocating for law and policy reform to better meet the needs of all street users--especially BIPOC communities.
We advocate for Seattle's Vision Zero commitment -- to eliminate road-traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030 -- by supporting safety projects including community development and redesigns, and traffic calming where they are needed most.
We envision a city where safe, comfortable and convenient bike routes connect every neighborhood in Seattle. Our grassroots network of hyper-local volunteer groups are advocating for neighborhood routes across the city that will help riders of all abilities, ages and ethnicities bike safely.
Join and support our movement to make Seattle a safer, healthier and more equitable place to live.
