At the April 18th Transportation, Economy and Environment Committee meeting, I hosted a series of panel discussions focused on the long-term future of downtown, tourism, office and residential space, and how King County can partner to make certain Seattle maintains a vibrant city core.
King County has broad authority over a number of government institutions that intersect with the day-to-day and long-term future of downtown, such as Metro Transit. King County is also one of the largest property owners in the city core and has a significant role to play in ensuring that downtown is a destination to work, live and play.
The panel discussion was fascinating, and the video of the committee meeting can be found here. I look forward to working with this broad coalition to collectively recover and shape the future for a vibrant, safe, and growing downtown Seattle.
