Petitioning Mayor of Seattle Mayor Murray and 4 others


I care about a green and livable city. A healthy place to live is a matter of racial and economic equity and environmental justice for all.

The Myers 33 Acres contain valuable wetlands, wildlife habitat, and open space which are important to the health of Hamm Creek watershed, the Duwamish River and many diverse neighborhoods. Communities in South Seattle already suffer from poor air and water quality due to a degraded environment.

In 2005, the City of Seattle destroyed wetlands on the Myers site in violation of the Clean Water Act and was forced by the Army Corps of Engineers to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in remediation. Now, the City is again risking wetlands and wildlife habitat. We cannot mitigate our way to healthy neighborhoods and watersheds.

Many neighbors have not heard about the City's plans to surplus parts of the Myers site or the City's expansion plans for the nearby Joint Training Facility. Neighbors such as the elders at adjacent SHAG housing and communities of color and neighbors on all sides must be involved. We demand a robust, transparent and inclusive community engagement so that all people can participate in the decision-making process. Together we can work toward a resilient and sustainable future of this land.
