People in the Planning Process

Development of the Pedestrian Master Plan was guided by direction from the Mayor's Office and the City Council’s Special Committee on Pedestrian Safety and the Transportation Committee. Project staff relied on the involvement of a range of partners, including various agency teams—the SDOT Executive Steering Committee, the Inter-Agency Team, and the SDOT Pedestrian/Bicycle Work Group—and the Pedestrian Master Plan Advisory Group (PMPAG).

The success of the plan is heavily reliant on partnerships:

  • Partnerships within the City: The Inter-Agency Team (IAT) served as a resource to the project team, helping to resolve issues related to the policies, practices, and design criteria that influence projects, as well as raise awareness, enforce laws, and ultimately build and maintain new facilities. The IAT played a key role in setting up the framework for plan implementation, including change to relevant core business elements. Click here for a roster of IAT members.
  • Partnerships with the community: The project has engaged the public through a number of forums and activities, including the Pedestrian Master Plan Advisory Group, events, discussions with key community groups and stakeholders, roundtable discussions, a Walking Preferences Survey, and outreach to under-represented communities, such as youth, seniors, people with disabilities, and people who do not speak English as a first language.
  • Partnerships with existing organizations: Neighborhood groups, advocacy groups, partner agencies, and existing City boards, including the Seattle Pedestrian Advisory Board, played an important role in making the plan successful.
