City Council encourages public input on Pedestrian Master Plan Seattle’s draft plan on pedestrian safety is ready for public review and comment
SEATTLE - The Seattle City Council’s Transportation and Pedestrian
Safety Committees will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, July 21 at 5 p.m. in Council Chambers to hear input on the draft of the city’s proposed Pedestrian Master Plan.
The Council was initially briefed on the draft in April by the Seattle Department of Transportation that, along with the Pedestrian Master Plan Advisory Group, developed the plan. It was created with a focus on making Seattle a safer, more pedestrian-friendly city.
The joint committee will receive a briefing Tuesday morning from SDOT that will focus on input collected during its extensive public outreach process on the draft plan.
"I want to thank the Advisory Group for all of the time and effort put into this project," said Councilmember Jan Drago. "I am really looking forward to hearing the public's feedback on it."
Public input will be used by the Council to assist it in its overall review of the plan.
"Thanks to the work of the citizens Advisory Group, we are entering a new era for pedestrian safety in Seattle, toward a safe walking environment for all,” said Councilmember Nick Licata.
Those who wish to provide comment to the Council during the meeting with be asked to sign in upon arrival. Council chambers are located on the 2nd floor of City Hall, 600 Fourth Avenue.
