What We've Done
- We were instrumental in getting a better family friendly connection to Jefferson Park across busy S Spokane St and onto a new trail by working with the Beacon Food Forest, other communities groups, the Seattle Park Department, and the Seattle Department of Transportation.
- We successfully advocated to incorporate our crowd sourced knowledge into Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan.
- We scouted and identified a crowd-sourced map of important walking and biking routes (see map below), won a grant, and work with Alta Planinng to create a community circulation plan.
- Crowd sourced mapping: We scouted and identified a crowd-sourced map of important walking and biking routes (see map below – which is now out of date).
