A RESOLUTION requesting the Seattle Department of Transportation provide quarterly reporting to City Council on implementation of the One Center City program.


WHEREAS, the ten neighborhoods that comprise Seattle’s Center City will experience significant disruption to the transportation system between 2019 and 2021; and

WHEREAS, the Seattle Department of Transportation, the Seattle Office of Planning and Community Development, King County Metro, Sound Transit, and the Downtown Seattle Association have come together to identify short-term and long-term transportation improvements, known as the One Center City program, to keep people and the economy moving even as major public and private construction projects reduce capacity on our roads and disrupt travel; and
