North Downtown Mobility Action Plan

What's Happening Now

The weather was excellent for our all-day Community Workshop held on November 18, and we are working through all of the great input we received. Couldn’t make it? Below is the information we shared and the comments we heard.

Kick-off Feedback and What’s Planned
Several maps highlight the feedback we received at the October project kick-off, indicating the hot spots where participants requested improvements. The feedback boards are followed by maps of SDOT’s funded projects as well as projects identified in citywide and neighborhood plans. The maps of what we heard and what’s planned are displayed by mode: driving and goods delivery, transit, walking, and bicycling.

Building an Evaluation Framework
Feedback we received at the October kick-off about the project’s guiding principles was translated into measures we could use to build an evaluation framework. We asked participants at the November Community Workshop to rate potential measures of success for evaluating projects to achieve our guiding principles, or suggest other potential measures.

Walking and Bicycling Tour Maps
Check out the maps for three different walking tours or a biking tour to explore the neighborhoods on your own. Have comments for improvements along the tour routes? Email them to northdowntown@seattle.gov.
