Montlake Greenways leader Lionel Job explains potential safety improvements for seniors, kids, and people accessing the Boyer Clinic.

Tonight, in a packed room, neighbors Capitol Hill, Montlake, the Central District, and Madison Valley heard about what greenways are from SDOT. Top concerns voiced by community members were the potential impact of the 23rd Ave arterial repaving project putting additional cars onto neighborhood streets, being able to safely cross arterials, speeding and volume of school drop off car traffic, and the need for safe routes for families to walk and bike to where they need to go. There was no consensus about where greenway safety improvements would be best suited. Negative emotions ran high about the 23rd Ave E arterial repaving project and spilled over into other conversations.

Central Seattle Greenways hopes SDOT and safe streets advocates are able to refocus the conversation on the neighborhoods’ shared concerns of reducing cut through traffic on neighborhood streets, slowing speeding drop off traffic, and providing safe ways for our aging population to walk to parks and kids to safely bike to school.

There is common ground to have a quality conversation moving forward. In addition, we hope that the conversation about the 23rd Ave E arterial project and greenway safety improvements can be separated.

Thank you to everyone who came out in support tonight! We will need your passion, ideas, and hard work moving forward to help create safer streets in our communities.

  1. Hiya! Quick question that’s totally offf topic. Do you know how to make your site
    mobile friendly? My website looks weird when browsing fromm my iphone4.
    I’m trying to find a them or plugin that might be
    able to resolve this issue. If you have aany suggestions, please share.
    Cheers!

  2. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.

    But think about if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could definitely be one of the best in its niche.
    Very good blog!

  3. Appreciating the hard work you put into your blog and
    detailed information you present. It’s great to come across a
    blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed material.
    Fantastic read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m
    including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  4. It is also important to check any item you are buying to see if it is in good condition. If you are looking for a corporate gift idea to customize,
    look online. A customer over-heard the employees talking about the
    cuts, and got so offended that she decided to return everything she just purchased,
    and left the store.
