Objective 5: Create vibrant public spaces that encourage walking

Previous
Next

Seattle’s neighborhoods should be connected by a network of pleasurable and interesting places that invite people to walk. While there is no magic formula, walking is supported by mixing land uses, creating human-scaled buildings, providing visual amenities and engaging streetscapes, developing programs for public spaces, illuminating the pedestrian realm, and planting appropriate vegetation. These strategies contribute to making great places for walking.
