Creating People-Friendly Streets

Little Free Library in WallingfordAre you concerned about the accidents involving pedestrians along Stone Way? Or perhaps you, like me, are a devotee of little free libraries? Do you want to help create a Wallingford that is people-centric?

If any of these sentiments describe you, the Wallingford/Green Lake Greenways folks would love to meet you! Cathy emailed to invite the neighborhood to their next meeting:

WHAT: Meet people in your neighborhood who care as much as you do about safe and healthy streets.

WHEN: Tuesday, February 11 from 6-7:30 p.m.

WHERE: Mosaic Community Coffeehouse in Wallingford 4401 2nd Ave NE

At 7:30 p.m. we’ll go to Murphy’s to have something to eat and work on finalizing our safer streets map!

AGENDA

  • 6 pm. Meet your neighbors
  • 6:30 pm. Update on safe streets improvements being planned in Seattle and particularly in Wallingford and Green Lake.
  • 7 pm. Break into two or three discussion groups:
  1.  Stone Way safety corridor / 41st crossing;
  2. Greenways being planned in Green Lake/Wallingford;
  3. Streets as public places — new ideas like Little Free Libraries, community gardens, play spaces, pocket parklets.
  •  7:30 pm Go to Murphy’s on 45th and Meridian to work on a final safer streets map.

Questions? Please contact Jeff.

    I lived in Wallingford on Stone Way for four years and did not have a problem crossing the street with care. Too many people in Seattle demand the right of way crossing streets even when it is not safe to do so. I always lived in fear that someone would step out directly in front my car because they have the “right of way,” be it safe or not. How many mothers taught their children to look both ways before crossing the street?
