Healthy Trees and Safe Sidewalks Management Plan


Photo by: Seattle Magazine

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), with the assistance of a consultant team led by SvR Design Company, is developing the Healthy Trees and Safe Sidewalks Management Plan to better address commonly occurring conflicts between trees and sidewalks. The project will establish a strategy and identify the tools necessary to achieve accessible sidewalks while expanding our urban forest. Sustainable, long-term strategies will form the backbone of a toolkit of solutions. This project will inform the work of SDOT’s Street Maintenance and Urban Forestry divisions in partnership with Seattle residents.
