We are a coalition of nine nonprofits, community organizations, and advocacy groups serving neighborhoods adjacent to the Washington State convention Center (WSCC) Addition.
We collectively represent thousands of Seattleites who are dedicated to a more attractive, safe, livable, and affordable city center.
Our coalition has put forth a proposal called The Community Package – at least $66.2 million and up to $86.5 million worth of investments in what the community needs most: public open spaces, safe routes for people walking and bicycling, and homes affordable to working families. This proposal is commensurate with the scale of the vacation petition and is comparable to other recent large, multi-block developments.
The Washington State Convention Center (WSCC) expansion is a massive undertaking that will reshape four city blocks in Seattle’s urban core. We believe the project’s size, central location, public ownership, and extensive request for public right-of-way compels the WSCC to offer an accordingly large-scale public benefit package for our community.
If you agree, sign this petition asking local decision-makers to adopt a Community Package of critical public benefits.
