Becoming the Most Walkable City
The Pedestrian Master Plan is both a near-term and a long-term plan. Many of the tools and information in the plan can be used immediately by public agencies, non-profit organizations, and community members to support walking in Seattle. The plan also takes an extended view of the actions that must happen to sustain Seattle as a walkable city. Some of these longer-term actions require ongoing partnerships that do not currently exist, may be very costly, or may require additional research to implement. However, it is important to include these types of actions in the plan to ensure that they move forward and are ready to be implemented when the partnerships, funding, or additional information are available.
This section of the plan includes a description of funding for the plan, opportunities for using the plan, accessibility elements of the pedestrian environment, and early implementation actions underway in Seattle.
