Capitol Hill Community Post | This Thursday: Design Commission Will Debate the Lid Study

From Lid I-5

The Washington State Convention Center (WSCC) will present an updated public benefits proposal to the Seattle Design Commission this Thursday, May 18th, 9:00 AM, at Seattle City Hall Room L2-80.

We’ve learned the proposed funding level for the Lid I-5 feasibility study is well short of our goals, so we need as many people as possible to show up and demonstrate community support! The session runs 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, but if you can only stay a short time the presentation and public comment period will be early on.

RSVP on Facebook to let us know you’re coming!

Can’t attend in person? Please send a message to the Design Commission supporting Lid I-5 via

We’ll be attending in solidarity with our coalition partners supporting the Community Package. If you believe in fighting for more open spaces, safer crossings for people walking and biking, and affordable homes for working families, then come down by 9:00 AM this Thursday to show your support. The coalition will send a strong message by filling the room with supporters.

Public enthusiasm for lidding I-5 is building momentum towards a historic moment. But we must ensure the feasibility study is funded well enough to be technically robust and reflect community priorities. Stand with us as we deliver our message.

Thank you,
The Lid I-5 Steering Committee
