West Seattle - High Point Stay Healthy Street

What's Happening Now?

Updated August 5, 2021

How do you feel about this Stay Healthy Street? We are continuing to evaluate the High Point Stay Healthy Street through fall 2021 before determining with the community if it should be made permanent. During the evaluation, there are opportunities to make changes to the current route and design if data and community engagement support the changes.

Please take our survey, available in multiple languages. On the first question, select "West Seattle - High Point" to give feedback. 

About this project 

Stay Healthy Streets are an important tool for Seattleites to get outside, travel to grocery stores, pharmacies, and local businesses, and get exercise. They make it possible for people to walk, roll, and bike in the street while staying 6 feet apart during the COVID-19 pandemic. Installed as part of our emergency response to the pandemic in 2020, they also provide an opportunity for you to consider how they might improve your community long-term.   

How were streets selected? 

We considered existing Neighborhood Greenways, which have traffic calming like speed humps, improvements to make it easy to cross busy streets, and have gone through a community engagement process.  

What is next?

We are collecting community input to help decide if the shared street you live on or near (see map below) should be made permanent. Permanent streets could be used for having outdoor potlucks and celebrations with your neighbors, art projects, sports, and traffic gardens along with travel and should support your community's values.
