Neighborhood greenway groups across the city are hosting a meetup starting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Mosaic Coffee in Wallingford. The meeting will feature Steve Durrant, a planner at Alta, and Councilmember Sally Bagshaw, who will discuss post-Prop funding options.
Mosaic Coffee is located along the Wallingford neighborhood greenway route, which we wrote about earlier this week.
Alta Principal Planner and bicycle/pedestrian infrastructure design expert Steve Durrant will share techniques and ideas for neighborhood greenway development from his work and observations in other North American cities such as Portland, Vancouver, Minneapolis, St Louis, Kansas City, Dallas, and Louisville. These ideas and practices can help Seattle advocates design and build our own vibrant neighborhood greenways.
Seattle City Councilmember Sally Bagshaw will be on-hand and to deliver closing thoughts on post-Prop 1 funding opportunities and more.
