Previous
Next

All streets in Seattle should be walkable at the very basic level to encourage Seattle’s residents and visitors to explore their environment. A clear walkable zone is a horizontal and vertical space that is free of obstructions, fast-moving vehicular traffic, and other potential hazards.

Strategy 2.1: Create and maintain a walkable zone on all streets to enable a clear pedestrian path of travel

Strategy 2.2: Improve pedestrian access to major destinations

Strategy 2.3: Create an expanded set of design standards for pedestrian paths and sidewalks

Strategy 2.4: Support the dual benefits of tree canopy coverage and walkability
