Did you know the Move Seattle levy will build a road safety project at every single public school in the city? It’s true! And that’s just one example of a community-generated idea in the nine-year transportation levy.
But boosting Safe Routes to School funds in the levy plan is only effective if we then go and pass it. That’s why Feet First, Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, Cascade Bicycle Club and the Let’s Move Seattle campaign are holding a community walk in Greenwood today to highlight safety problems in the neighborhood and demonstrate how passing Move Seattle will help keep everyone safe.
Meet at Greenwood Elementary at 2:45 p.m. (walk starts at 3). Walk will end at Razzi’s Pizzeria, where you can stay and help out at a phone bank if you want to do even more.
Because if our neighborhood streets are safe for children, they are safe for everyone else, too.
Details from Feet First:
Who: Feet First, Let’s Move Seattle, Greenwood Phinney Greenways, Cascade Bicycle Club
