Magnolia Community Council

On June 15, 2015, Carol Burton, president of the Magnolia Community Council, sent a letter to members of the Seattle City Council expressing the board’s concern that the proposed $930 million transportation levy for a variety of projects and improvements does not have a provision for funding replacement of the Magnolia Bridge. 

The letter points out that replacement of the earthquake-prone Magnolia Bridge is not a maintenance item. 

It urged the council to exercise its leadership by taking action now to fund the replacement, and not to gamble on the possible availability of funding by bonds backed by parking revenues sometime after 2024.
