Seattle Neighborhood Greenways event will imagine ‘pedestrian streets in every Seattle neighborhood’

An Amsterdam pedestrianized street at night.

OK, OK, yes, it is ridiculous that Pike Place allows cars (especially non-delivery vehicles). But that is just one little street downtown, and it tends to take up most of the space in local conversations about pedestrianizing streets.

Let try this statement on for size: There should be at least one pedestrian street in every Seattle neighborhood.

That’s the topic of discussion at Seattle Neighborhood Greenways’ Pedestrianize This! event April 25 at Centilia Cultural Center on Beacon Hill. Tickets are free (though you of course are encouraged to donate to support SNG’s work).

Help us build momentum for pedestrian streets across our city!

April 25 | 6 – 8 PM

Centilia Cultural Center

You’ve probably heard about the idea to pedestrianize Pike Place Market, but did you know there are efforts to create streets for people around the city? What if at the heart of every neighborhood there was a street that invited people to gather, celebrate, shop, play, build community and relax?

Join us for the first event in our live panel series, Pedestrianize This! Get inspired by experts sharing examples from leading cities around the world, and explore opportunities to make a real difference in your community!
