There are two more city-sponsored chances to take part in Seattle’s Road Safety Summit: November 15 at Northgate Community Center and November 21 at Southwest Community Center (both from 6-8 p.m.)
But, at the city’s suggestion, Bike Works has decided to host their own forum of the same format from 6-8 p.m. November 14 at their shop at Rainier Ave and S Ferdinand St. in Columbia City. Not only that, but your humble Seattle Bike Blog editor will be helping to lead the discussion.
It will be a lively discussion, and all are welcome to come regardless of your opinions on cycling. Sure, it’s at a bike shop, but the summit is about safety for everyone regardless of their chosen mode. So invite your friends!
From Bike Works:
In response to heightened awareness of road and transportation tensions, the Mayor’s Office is hosting a series of public Road Safety Summit meetings. Here at Bike Works, we like to talk transportation. We recognize that the three official meetings are potentially difficult for Southeast Seattleites to get, so we’re hosting one for you! Come to Bike Works Monday, November 14th from 6-8pm for an evening of transportation dialogue, where we’ll be collecting answers from individuals for the three questions the Road Safety Summit is asking all attendees:
1. What do you think are the highest priority safety problems to solve on Seattle roads?
2. What do you think are the most important things to do to make Seattle roads safer?
3. We often talk about what government can do to promote safety. What are the ways that non-governmental groups and individuals can promote safety?
If you’re unable to attend, we still encourage you to add input by going to the city’s page here and filling out their survey. We hope you can join us!
