Municipal Broadband in Seattle's Comprehensive Master Plan

  • Council Chambers, Seattle City Hall 600 4th Avenue, 2nd Floor Seattle, WA, 98104 United States (map)

We need your support!  The City of Seattle is currently considering adding a municipal broadband amendment to its Comprehensive Master Plan. This is a big deal!

Seattle’s Comprehensive Master Plan lays out a blueprint for how the City will grow over the next 20 years.  Ensuring municipal broadband makes it into this plan is a crucial first step towards building out a citywide public internet utility.  

With your help, we pushed the issue front and center during the 2015 election cycle.  You made municipal broadband a make or break issue, and now we have the opportunity to make concrete legislative change.

This Thursday, September 15th at 2:00PM the City Council will be hearing public testimony regarding the Comprehensive Master Plan.  Will you join us and ensure that municipal broadband is added to the plan?

The Council is supportive of municipal broadband, but make no mistake: Comcast and Centurylink do not want this in Seattle's Comprehensive Master Plan. Let’s provide the council with the support they need to lead on this issue.

If you can’t make it, can you email the council and let them know you support adding municipal broadband to the plan?  

Make sure to thank them for their hard work on this issue and to let them know you’d like to see municipal broadband added to the Comprehensive Master Plan.

Email: council@seattle.gov and thank them for their support!
