  • Bainbridge Island SAFE Mobility Levy a seven-year, $15 million tax levy designed to fund shoulder upgrades on roadways, trails with a focus on safe routes to schools, and various sidewalk and other improvements to provide more safety and better access for those walking and biking on the island.

Speakers:¬†Demi Allen, member of the city’s Multi-modal Transportation Advisory Committee, MTAC representative to the¬†Infrastructure Ballot Measure Task Force, and Squeaky Wheels board member.
