Seattle's Waterfront

We all love Seattle's waterfront because of its great restaurants, entertainment, art and culture -- but mostly for views of our beautiful Puget Sound. It is part of why we choose to live here.

But imagine up to 18 coal trains, each a mile and a half long, rumbling through the waterfront daily -- disrupting this vital economic tourist engine, polluting our water with toxic coal dust and making already-congested traffic worse.

That is what we will face if coal companies' proposed 50-million-ton coal export terminal in Whatcom County gets built.

It doesn't have to be this way.

Join Mayor McGinn and Seattle waterfront businesses at a Seattle Waterfront Business Appreciation event and protect Seattle's waterfront from dirty coal exports!

Here are the details:

WHO: Mayor Mike McGinn, Kyle Griffith, Pier 57 and Great Wheel owner, and Cary Moon, Co-Founder of People’s Waterfront Coalition
