COVID-19 위기 관련 재정적 여파에 대한 대응으로 시애틀 교통국(SDOT)은 몇 가지 프로젝트를 중단하는 즉각적 조치를 취합니다

COVID-19위기및이와관련한재정적여파로시애틀시는상당한예산부족에직면하고있습니다.시애틀교통국(Seattle Department of Transportation, SDOT)도예외는아니어서2020년4,600만달러에가까운수입손실이예상됩니다. 그결과,당국은신중하지만즉각적인행동을취하여몇가지프로젝트를중지해야만하며,새로운재정적현실과일정에도불구하고보다살기좋고,안전하며,포용적인시애틀에대한SDOT의비전을계속추구하려고합니다. 코로나19는이미우리시,우리나라,그리고지구촌전체에역사에남을만한수준의해로운영향을주었으며그파급효과는향후몇년간지속될것입니다.당국은팬데믹이시애틀시및SDOT에무엇을의미하는지명확히밝히고대응하기위해노력하고있습니다.. 시애틀은그어느때보다도강하게재건될수있는회복력있는도시지만,시와자금지원협력자들의수입이심각하게감소되며함께하는회복의길에어려운절충이필요하게되었으며, 2020년이후예산에심각한영향이있을것으로예상하고있습니다.지난3월에팬데믹이시작된이후,우리는자원을전환하고새로운공중보건우선순위에대응해야했습니다. 그결과,다수의계획된성과및지출계획들을단기간에이룰수없다는것을알고있습니다. 시장Durkan의리더쉽을통해,SDOT는우리교통체계가유색인공동체와모든소득,능력,연령의사람들이갖고있는필요를충족시킬수있도록노력해왔습니다. 당국의목표는지역사회와협력하여인종적으로평등하고사회적으로공정한교통체계를구축하는것입니다.아직가야할길이멀고개선의여지도있습니다.예산삭감이모든시애틀시민들에게영향을미치겠지만,흑인들과유색인공동체에불균형적으로영향을미치지않도록하는것이당국의책무입니다.. 또한이시기에수많은미지의상황과질문들이있지만,당국은투명하고,적극적으로참여하며,상황이진행될때마다여러분께알려드릴것을약속할수있습니다. 이중지기간동안당국은재정적제약을더 잘이해하고,예산부족을해결하기위한즉각적인비용절감액을파악하며, 2021년이후어떤프로젝트가언제어떤방식으로진행될지알려주기위해신중하고,공정함을우선으로하는절차를수립하도록노력할것입니다.하지만,중지된프로젝트가앞으로우리가살게될도시에더이상합리적으로적합하지않다면재개되지않을수도있습니다. 당국은2020년에예상되는SDOT수입부족문제를해결하기위해필요한만큼프로젝트작업을중지하고있습니다. 가장현실적인예상으로2020년 4,600만달러의재정손실이추정됩니다.SDOT와시애틀시의재정상황이계속변하기때문에현재의중지목록은이목표를완전히충족하지못할수도있지만,앞으로몇 달동안당국은어떤작업을무기한중지하고어떤작업을진행할지에대한결정을안내하는기준을개발할것입니다.앞서언급한바와같이당국은교통체계에서인종및사회적정의를우선으로하며, 이기준을개발할것입니다. SDOT의선임팀은이목록을시예산실과시장실에서수립한시전역2020년감축안의일부로개발했습니다.중지목록은신중하게개발되었지만,코로나19위기에신속하게대처하기위해당면한시간적제약으로인해2020년자금지원을받는프로젝트를동결하고,이미공사중인프로젝트나보조금및외부자금을활용하는프로젝트를피해야할필요에의해영향을받았습니다.당국은SDOT의예산이팬데믹이전상태로신속하고빠르게회복될것으로기대하지않습니다.당국이우선순위를정하는노력을계속하고수입예상치를더욱잘이해함에따라프로젝트는여전히“중지”목록에서추가되거나사라질수있습니다. 각각의프로젝트는성장하는시애틀에긍정적인변화를주도하기위해공동체,선출된지도자,동료의아이디어에서비롯되었습니다. 2021년과 2022년의장기프로젝트목록을추구하려면지금2020년지출을감축해야합니다.SDOT전반에걸친최종결정을통해수입부족,안전,형평성을해결하기위해노력하는가운데무브시애틀추가부담금관리감독위원회(Move Seattle Levy Oversight Committee)및기타자문기구의피드백은당국의의사결정에핵심요소가될것입니다.여기에기재된각프로젝트와관련된모든사람들이지금결정을통보받고, 그결과에대해질문하고토론할기회를드리고싶습니다. 근로자와지역사회의안전은앞으로도당국의최우선과제가될것입니다.이번위기중에도,안전대책과규정을추가하여업무를조정했습니다. Lander St고가도로, Martin Luther King JrWay의자전거보호도로(Rainier북쪽),Georgetown에서SouthPark에이르는자전거시설, Fairview Bridge교체, Northgate자전거및보행자다리, DelridgeRapidRideH Line, Rainier AveS의버스차선개선,안전한등교길(Safe Routes to School)프로젝트, Green Lake 및… [ Keep reading ]

為應對 COVID-19 危機帶來的財務影響, 西雅圖交通部 (SDOT) 將立即採取行動暫停多個建設

由於 2019 新型冠狀病毒病 (COVID-19) 危機及其造成的財務影響,整個西雅圖市面臨巨大的預算短缺。 西雅圖交通部 (SDOT) 也不例外,預計 2020 年收入將損失近 4,600 萬美元。 因此,我們須採取即時而周全的行動,除了暫停多個建設,SDOT 需確保在新面臨的財政狀況和各項時間表之下,我們仍可逐步實現願景,令西雅圖成為更宜居、更安全、更具包容性的城市。 COVID-19 現已造成有重大歷史意義的負面影響,不但涉及到本市、整個美國,世界各地都無法倖免,而且未來數年將繼續產生連鎖效應。 我們正設法應對並釐清 COVID-19 全球大流行對西雅圖市及 SDOT 之影響. 本市具有強大的復原重建能力,日後的發展必定更勝以前,但目前為止,本市財政收入大幅下降,為 2020 年及其後制定的預算受到顯著影響,而邁向共同復甦的道路上,我們的資金合作夥伴將會要求我們作出艱難的折中方案。 自從三月份全球大流行爆發以來,當務之急須轉移資源以便應對公共衛生突發事件。 因此,我們明白短期內將會有許多已作規畫的成就和支出計畫無法付諸實踐。 在德肯 (Durkan) 市長領導之下,SDOT 力求確保本市交通運輸系統能夠滿足有色人種社區以及所有收入階層、不同行動能力、各年齡階段人士的需求。 我們旨在與各社群合作,建立體現種族平等和社會正義的交通運輸系統。 前路漫漫,尚有改善空間。 削減預算將會影響到全體西雅圖居民,但我們承諾確保該措施不會對黑人和有色人種群體帶來不成比例的影響. 儘管目前仍有許多未知數和問題,但我們承諾:保持資訊透明公開,積極投入做好應對工作,並及時向大家告知情況進展。 在此暫停期間,我們將會更深入瞭解自身財政限制,辨別即時可節省的成本以解決預算短缺,並且為 2021 年及其後的發展建立周全且優先考慮公正的流程,以明確哪些建設將在何時、以何種方式繼續進展。 然而,若有部分建設對未來數年的本市新發展不再有意義,則在暫停之後可能不會重啟該部分建設。 我們正需暫緩一定數量的建設進展,以解決 2020 年 SDOT 財政收入不足的問題。 根據較樂觀的預測,2020 年我們的財政收入將損失 4,600 萬美元。 由於 SDOT 和本市的財務狀況仍有未知數,現時的暫停清單或未能完全達到該目標,但在未來幾個月內,我們將制定標準,作為決定無限期暫停或繼續進行哪些建設時的決策指引。… [ Keep reading ]
