Leary Way! A safer trail for everyone!
We are asking Mayor Harrell and the Seattle City Council to complete the Burke-Gilman on Leary because it is safer and less expensive than the Shilshole Avenue route. Support our cyclists and our working families!
Please feel free to copy and paste this email message below and then send to Seattle City Council Members (email links provided below):
Subject: Leary & Market! A safer completion of the Burke-Gilman Trail.
Dear Mayor Harrell and Seattle City Councilmembers,
I am writing to urge you to complete the Missing Link of the Burke-Gilman trail along Leary Avenue instead of on Shilshole Avenue.
The Leary route is:
* Safer than Shilshole because bikes and large trucks do not mix.
* Less expensive—why is the City spending $42 million to build a recreational trail along Shilshole when it could build protected bike lanes on Leary for less than $15 million?
* Better for Seattle because it will protect family-wage jobs that provide living wages to blue-collar workers.
Please build a bike trail on Leary – a trail that will work for ALL of Seattle.
Mayor Bruce Harrell
