We believe the major arterial streets in our neighborhoods should be safe for all people, whether they're walking, biking, or driving.  Unfortunately, too many of our streets are not comfortable to walk and bike and many have high collision rates. Simply walking and biking to our wonderful neighborhood parks and schools is unnecessarily dangerous for all people, and especially for kids.

Right now, the City of Seattle is planning a major repaving projects in our neighborhoods.  This is a once in a generation opportunity to re-envision the streets in our neighborhood to be truly designed for all uses, for all people.

The City is already planning major improvements to East Green Lake Drive & Way N and to N 40th Street.  We strongly support these plans.

We also request additional improvements, including:

  • Squaring-up the intersection of Ravenna Boulevard, East Green Lake Drive N, and East Green Lake Way N.
  • A dedicated phase for south-bound bicyclists to safely cross N 50th Street from Green Lake Way N to Stone Way N.
  • Routing a two-way protected bike lane through the western edge of the Woodland Park Lower Parking Lot, helping to create a park-like bikeway, eliminating car-bike conflicts at driveways, and saving neighborhood car parking.
  • Creating a two-way protected bike lane along the north side of N 50th Street from Fremont Avenue N to Green Lake Way N.
