Project Overview

The purpose of the Georgetown Mobility Study is to evaluate street improvements to increase safety and health, and improve conditions for people walking, biking, and driving. The Study is a response to comments the Georgetown community voiced during the development of the Seattle Freight Master Plan.

Community participation was fundamental to the project. Georgetown residents, workers and businesses made recommendations for transportation and safety enhancements in the neighborhood. The project built on recently completed community work such as the Seattle Parks Foundation's Georgetown Open Space Vision Framework as well as adopted citywide freight, pedestrian, bicycle and transit mobility plans. Project outreach and engagement gave people several ways to participate, including direct survey interviews, community- based clinics, web surveys and public work sessions.
