What We've Done
- Pop Up Neighborhood Greenway: We created a "pop up neighborhood greenway" to demonstrate what neighborhood greenways could mean for our neighborhoods. It included painted speed humps and bikes with directional arrows in the street. It also included signage on polls to direct people to community destinations and let them know how far it is.
- Neighborhood Street Design planning: We worked with a UW Landscape Architecture Class to engage the community in a process to re-imagine how our streets and parks could better serve the Greenwood neighborhood. Learn more and see the exciting design ideas.
- Seattle's Bicycle Master Plan: Seattle adopted 95% of our crowd sourced knowledge into Seattle’s Bicycle Master 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We scouted and identified a crowd-sourced map of important walking and biking routes (see map below – which is now out of date).
