Ballard-Fremont Greenways launches Wednesday, and you’re invited

Ballard and Fremont have both had local chapters of Seattle Neighborhood Greenways in the past, but they have been quiet in recent years. So some neighbors are organizing to bring the neighborhoods together into a new supergroup, and you’re invited.

The group is hosting a launch party 6 p.m. Wednesday at Peddler Brewing.

From the event page:

Do you live, work, or play in Ballard or Fremont?
Do you want your neighborhood to be a great place for people to walk and ride bicycles?

Then join us in launching Ballard-Fremont Greenways! Come together to meet your neighbors and learn about local projects and people organizing for change.

Wednesday, February 27, 6:00 – 7:30 pm
Peddler Brewing Company

We’ll brainstorm & start to set our priorities for making Ballard and Fremont streets safe and more enjoyable for everyone who wants to walk and bike in our neighborhoods.

Peddler Brewing is kid and dog friendly, and wheelchair accessible. We’ll have some snacks to share, and there is also food for purchase. Please join us whether you’ll be having a beer or not. The location is easily accessible by transit, walking, or rolling, and has ample bike parking outside and inside.

See you there!

    It’d be nice if we could finish the 17th Greenway. And I don’t mean the Dock St. dead end, I mean finish extending the Greenway down 17th to the future Missing Link, including safe crossings at Leary and Shilshole.

    And while we’re at it, can we get rid of the bike only cut-through next to the post office? Most of the time, it’s not usable, due to debris or someone parked, blocking the exit. Not to mention, it’s still not clear what problem it’s trying to solve (if anything, it needs to be blocking southbound traffic at 58th and 17th.
