Join Queen Anne Greenways on Tuesday to help improve pedestrian safety
Posted on February 24th, 2013 by Laura Fonda
The Queen Anne Greenways community group last met in late January, kicking off the group’s efforts for the year with new members and goals for 2013. The group is open to all, and it’s not too late to join in on the discussion about making our streets, sidewalks, and intersections more pedestrian-friendly.
Fifteen Queen Anne residents attended the January meeting, a great mix of residents with many volunteering to take on the all-important roles of political focal point, leader, secretary, and treasurer, as well as liaisons for the Uptown Alliance and Seattle Greenways. If you’re interested in taking on a leadership role or just voicing your thoughts and opinions, you’re welcome to join this week’s meeting as well as upcoming meetings on the 4th Tuesday of each month.
Key goals identified by the group for 2013 include:
- Review Seattle Bicycle Master Plan
- Map out desired Queen Anne Greenways (Crown of Hill and others)
- Work on pedestrian safety goals identified in November kickoff meeting
- Create connections with neighborhood schools to encourage and support pedestrian and bike safety for children
- Work on connectivity between Upper Queen Anne and Uptown, and to nearby neighborhoods
This week’s meeting is at Bayview Manor, subsequent meetings planned at the Queen Anne Library’s public meeting room (lower level of the library) when available:
- What: Monthly Queen Anne Greenways meeting
- When: Tuesday, February 26, 6:30-7:45pm
