Join your neighbors from across Seattle to set the priorities and to get energized for Connect Seattle’s organizing in 2015.
Connect Seattle is a grassroots effort of the Cascade Bicycle Club. Connect Seattle’s long-term goal is to build 250 miles of new protected bike lanes, neighborhood greenways and trails within the next decade. 2015 will be a big year to move us toward that goal.
There’s neighborhood projects like expediting fixing the Missing Link, designing a complete network of Downtown protected bike lanes, and making Rainier Avenue safer for people walking and biking. There’s the Neighbors for Vision Zero campaign. There’s big funding issues like renewing the city’s transportation levy. And then there’s electing city councilmembers for the first time in seven new council districts.
From across the city, hundreds of Connect Seattle volunteers and Seattle bike activists will come together to energize, prioritize, and plan our year.
In addition to our current Ballard, Downtown, Portage Bay, Southeast, and Westlake teams, we’ll also be launching teams for Northgate and White Center and partnering with West Seattle Bike Connections and Seattle Neighborhood Greenways to make our goal of 250 miles of new bikeways a reality.
Be part of it. Join us on January 31.
