Save the Market!
The Washington State Department of Transportation wants to condemn (or simply put, demolish) the Montlake Boulevard Market. For people from all over Seattle, the ‘Market’ or ‘Hop-In’ is a beloved spot for groceries, an ice cream with the kids, a last minute bottle of wine, and pre-Husky game hang out.
WSDOT’s plan to demolish the Montlake Boulevard Market is a strong departure from their original plan to keep it. WSDOT’s steps to condemn the Market have been marked by a lack of transparency, poor community engagement and inadequate consideration with respect to environmental impacts.
We, the Montlake Community Club, are saying this is not okay! We urgently need help from the citizens of Seattle to fund our legal fight against WSDOT and save the Market.
What You Can Do to Help.
At the end of July, the Montlake Community Club hired an attorney specializing in environmental, land use, and condemnation law to appeal to a judge on our commuunity’s behalf. The judge hearing the case has agreed to allow our testimony later this month regarding environmental impacts.
The judge’s decision to let us move forward was a crucial initial victory, but we cannot succeed without your financial support. Our legal fees are mounting and moving into the tens of thousands of dollars as we head toward our hearing later this month.
Thank you for your support. This is our moment to stand up against WSDOT as a community and have our voices be heard but we can’t do it without you. Give today.
