Year In Review: A Safe Streets Takeover, Born Out Of Love

Seattle Neighborhood Greenways Is Your Safe Streets Advocacy Group

Seattle Neighborhood Greenways is your safe street advocacy organization.

Since 2011, Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, and its coalition of 20 neighborhood-based, volunteer-led chapters, has empowered communities to reclaim Seattle’s streets so that they welcoming and full of life. For everyone — old or young, poor or well off, regardless of how they get around. We are creating a transportation system that gives us more choice for how to get around, keeps us safer, saves us money, and reduces climate pollution. We can get there by making every neighborhood a great place to walk, bike and live.

Seattle Neighborhood Greenways empowers communities to advocate for safe, healthy streets for all people. We are creating a transportation system that gives us more choice for how to get around, keeps us safer, saves us money, and reduces climate pollution. We can get there by making every neighborhood a great place to walk, bike and live.

There are many ways to contribute to this exciting and effective grassroots movement, including with your time, energy, and creativity!

Does your name mean you only work on neighborhood greenways?

No. Our earliest win gave us our name: we provided the vision, community outreach, and momentum that led city leaders to incorporate neighborhood greenways — traffic-calmed streets that are safer for walking and biking — into Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan. From there, we embarked on a multi-neighborhood listening effort to discover what mattered most to communities across the city and build our grassroots power, and expanded our scope to making neighborhoods great places to walk, bike, and live.
