Civic Cocktail: Head Tax + Transportation
Presented in partnership with Seattle Channel Has mounting homelessness and massive growth brought Seattle to its boiling point? The business community and City Hall are at odds over how to ease the city’s housing-affordability crisis. Marilyn Strickland, Seattle Chamber of Commerce CEO, and Seattle City Councilmember Lorena González join host Joni Balter to discuss who should pay for the cost of growth and how to channel the surge in civic discontent. Then, we'll talk transportation and the future of mobility in our region. With the Move Seattle levy facing funding shortfalls, where will the city scale back? Will cost overruns kill the streetcar? Is Seattle prepared to navigate the "period of maximum constraint" on traffic? Panelists TBA. Limited tickets available at the door; doors open at 5:30 p.m. Tickets at the door are $30.
