Neighborhood Walk & Talk this Saturday

Feet First is conducting a neighborhood walk & talk this Saturday in Laurelhurst

We’ll provide the maps, clipboards and cameras all you need to bring are your ideas. You are only limited by your own creativity!

Seattle Children’s Hospital has designated $2 million towards bike and pedestrian projects; it’s your turn to weigh in on the projects and ideas. This is a family event…all ages and abilities are encouraged to attend this audit.

This two-hour walk and talk from 10am to 12pm will explore proposed new pedestrian signals that are designed to make it easier to access the Burke-Gilman.

We’ll take a look at necessary signage to go by foot easier and physical to around Seattle Children’s and new curb ramp improvements. We’ll also take a look at the new configuration to reduce the number of crashes at 25th and Blakeley Street.

Your pictures, ideas, recommendations will be shared at the Livable Streets Workshop on November 13th. More details about that event here.
