The Seattle Pedestrian Master Plan (PMP) is a 20-year blueprint to achieve our vision of Seattle as the most walkable and accessible city in the nation. To achieve this outcome, we must focus on the safety and well-being of our residents and the vibrancy of our neighborhoods.

With limited funding to improve sidewalks and crossings each year, which facilities should be built first, and where? What actions should be prioritized to improve safety and pedestrian access in the city? What tools are appropriate to improve the quality and comfort of the pedestrian realm?

The PMP addresses these questions by establishing a prioritization framework and policies, programs, and project opportunity areas to advance pedestrian safety and accessibility. It lays out the key strategies and actions that are intended to achieve our vision, and it establishes the performance measures we use to gauge our success.
