Streetfilms and straight talk

Other cities around the world are making drastic changes to their streets to make them more livable, more comfortable and safer for pedestrians, bicyclists and other non-motorized users. How does Seattle stack up? Are we moving beyond our automobile dependence at the rate of these other cities, or are we dragging our feet?

Come out to Wallingford at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 28 and watch a series of short "Streetfilms" about what transportation officials and communities around the world are doing to make their streets safer and their communities more livable. The evening is part of the Friday Night at the Meaningful Movies series; the viewing will be followed by discussion of the films and of Seattle's Proposition 1, which, if passed, will fund a lot of the exciting changes in Seattle, including faster and more reliable transit, more sidewalks, street repairs and some bicycle infrastructure.

Heading up the discussion will be panelists Timothy Harris (Executive Director of Real Change), Mike O’Brien (Seattle City Councilmember), Cathy Tuttle (Spokespeople Coordinator), Lisa Quinn (Director of Feet First) and Craig Benjamin (Cascade Bicycle Club’s Policy and Government Affairs Manager).

See you there!
