Get Involved and Help Improve Your Local Shoreline Street End!

Improving a street end is a fantastic way to enhance a neighborhood. Many of Seattles best appreciated and enjoyed street ends came about as the result of residents and groups partnering with SDOT. At any time, a community organization or a group of neighborhood residents may request a permit to open and develop a street end for public use.

Street end improvements should be designed for quiet enjoyment of the waterfront open space. Improvements can include pathways, small benches, and low-maintenance, drought resistant plantings. All improved shoreline street ends will include public waterfront access signage.

Local community groups or sponsors provide on-going stewardship and maintenance.

When an application is approved by SDOT, any private use that conflicts with the plan must be removed at the expense of the property owner.
