Supporting community spirit and creating a connected environment in NE Seattle's Meadowbrook community and surrounding neighborhoods.

Remembrance & Rally: Call on Seattle City Council to fund $3 million in street safety improvements in 2017.

Call on Seattle City Council to fund $3 million in street safety improvements in 2017.

image003A rash of serious injuries and fatalities on the streets of north Seattle has galvanized people to demand swift action. From 2015 to the present, there have been 24 serious injury collisions in north Seattle, six of them fatal.

In a normal year, two people lose their lives riding bikes in all of Seattle. In northeast Seattle, two people have been killed riding their bikes just in the past month.

Join Lake City Greenways, NE Seattle Greenways, Green Lake Greenways, Licton-Haller Greenways, Greenwood-Phinney Greenways, Maple Leaf Greenways and many other community groups and neighbors to highlighthese unsettlingly incidents.

They will gather on Sunday, October 9 at noon in front of the Northgate Community Center to remember the people whose lives have been altered by or lost to traffic violence. The gathering will raise awareness and ask city leaders to put money in the budget to construct street safety improvements.

“Northeast Seattle is experiencing a shocking level of traffic violence,” said Cathy Tuttle, director of the traffic safety organization Seattle Neighborhood Greenways. “We’ve mapped where collisions have happened in the northeast and believe many streets could be fixed with modest but effective safety engineering. The City has identified 100 places that could use spot improvements, and people throughout Seattle have documented another 300 street safety concerns. Let’s get the funding in place so we can fix these places. Waiting longer to improve our streets has deadly consequences.”

Seattle has committed to Vision Zero (zero serious injuries or fatalities by 2030), but the $2.4 million budgeted for a life-saving agenda is not sufficient. Neighbors are gathering to say #WeCantWait for more serious injuries and fatalities to spur City action.

Seattle Neighborhoods: Engaging Your Community

461420603
As you know, the City of Seattle is shifting our approach to outreach and engagement and we are looking for ideas on how we can keep residents better informed about projects, events, opportunities, and issues.

We have created a simple two-minute survey to get feedback on how people want to engage with city government and what we can do to make it easier for them to weigh in and participate.

Our goal is to hear from as many people as possible! But, in order to achieve that, we need your help!

Would you be willing to circulate this survey within your community?

The survey can be found at http://bit.ly/EngageSeattle-survey.

We appreciate any help you can provide in getting the word out to your contacts.

Thank you for joining us in bringing more voices to the table and making our outreach and engagement work for everyone!
