SEATTLE (AP) - The battle continues over what Seattle’s future waterfront should look like.

KING-TV reports (http://kng5.tv/1MSiU2o ) in a letter on Thursday, Friends of Waterfront Seattle accused the people behind Initiative 123 of stealing the city’s “Waterfront For All” messaging and other elements of the project and claiming it as their own.

The initiative seeks to save a 400-foot section of the Alaskan Way Viaduct and use it to build an elevated park at the waterfront.

Friends of Waterfront Seattle support the city’s current plan to remove the viaduct and build a multi-million dollar waterfront park.

Initiative 123 campaign director, Kate Martin, says the letter won’t stop her group from pursuing efforts to get the project on the November ballot. They have already gained more than 20,000 signatures needed to do so.
