Levy Achievements 2016 - end of 2023

Thank you, people of Seattle!

In November 2015, Seattle voters approved the 9-year, $930 million Levy to Move Seattle. Seattle residents contribute to this funding source through a percentage of their property tax. We use the funding to improve safety for all travelers, maintain streets and bridges, and support reliable, affordable travel options in a growing city.
