Mike Akers how about downtown seattle since it is in the city limits

Jules James

Jules James I like Allenville. The history of Paul Allen’s investment into the old hard-bitten Southlake neighborhood is too often ignored. He gave $20M to purchase land for a civic park. When taxpayers rejected The Commons (thank goodness!), he rightfully took possession of the land. Allenville began as local civic do-gooding and became internationally significant — good enough reason to award a place name.

Lorna Jordan If the Commons had been handled differently, I believe it would have passed and would have been a great asset to the city. Green space downtown? Heck yeah.

Jules James

Jules James Tax Increment Financing was entirely a scam. The Commons was a victim. But what we got worked out: jobs & housing well in excess of Commons proponents’ predictions plus the instant classic Southlake Park.

Mary Gleason-thach Ray I think Allentown pretty much says it all. Easy to say, easy to spell. Stick with that.

Margaret DeLacy I’ll vote for Allentown. But Amazonia has a nice ring to it.

Clark Wiegman
Clark Wiegman We should refuse to honor Allen or Bezos with naming rights for free. I vote for SLUM (South Lake Union Metro). wink emoticon
