How Seattle Measures Success

efficiency of street by mode switchAs some of you may remember, a few years ago we worked to improve the Seattle Comprehensive Master Plan. This plan is the one that is legally required by the State of Washington’s Growth Management Act, and all Seattle’s plan are supposed to fit under it. I like to call the Comprehensive Plan the One Plan to Rule Them All, but that’s because I’m a Lord of the Rings fan…
Anyway, we were attempting to get Seattle to redefine how it measures the success of it’s transportation system away from an antiquated car based system that defined success as how empty roads are (yes, really. V/C is the volume of cars divided by the capacity of the roadway, and busier is worse) and instead adopt a measure that corresponded more with our other goals as a city – health, climate, equity, safety, etc. So, what we suggested and the city agreed to look into a “multimodal level of service” that would define success as a the % trips not being taken by single occupancy vehicles. The new goal would reduce the SOV % in all parts of the city. While the targets may not be as visionary as we would like, it is fairly bold for such a technical document that has to hold up in court, and will make a real difference in how our government views the potential impacts of development projects, which will ultimately result in increased investment in walking, biking, and transit facilities.
In short, the new rules will require developments in more car dependent places to make investments in things like sidewalks, bike lanes, and bus passes to encourage more people to walk, bike, and take transit.
It’s been a while since our original advocacy, but excited to announce that the proposal was passed through the City Council Policy and Planning Committee, and will go to the mayor’s desk in January!

Today is Giving Tuesday — Your Opportunity to Give!

Because of you, Seattle’s becoming a better city for biking & walking!

 

As we think about what we’re most grateful for this season, it’s you.

You, and neighbors like you, give your time, energy, and creativity to making Seattle a better city. Whether you’re supporting the Seattle Neighborhood Greenways coalition with your presence at community meetings, advocating for change, helping with hands-on projects, or donating financially — you’re the heart of this safe streets movement.

And because of you, the Seattle Neighborhood Greenways coalition has been achieving a lot this past year — just one major success after another:

  • An official Basic Bike Network resolution that puts Seattle on the path to completing essential east-west and north-south connections by the end of 2019
  • Funding for a Home Zone pilot, an innovative and cost-effective solution to create safe spaces to walk, particularly in neighborhoods without sidewalks
  • And upgraded crosswalk signals that will get people safely across Martin Luther King, Jr Way to the light rail stations in Rainier Valley.

But we’re far from done. Seattle is still a long ways from being the safe city to walk and bike in that we dream of. 

That’s why Seattle Neighborhood Greenways’ Board of Directors and the local Bowline Fund have boldly stepped up to match your gifts 2-to-1 this fall, as we head into our busiest season of citywide organizing yet.

Your financial support will help us keep moving the city in the right direction. Please consider taking just a moment to make a gift of any size today.

When you donate to Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, you’re helping accelerate safe streets solutions in Seattle. Your support makes it possible for SNG to:

  • Champion safe routes for kids to walk and bike to school
  • Work for safe routes to walk and bike to transit hubs
  • Advocate for walking and biking projects with historically underserved communities
  • Organize for a bike network that connects to every neighborhood


With your support, we know that “safe streets for all” is more than just a hopeful vision — it’s a future that we all, working together as concerned neighbors and proactive communities, can make possible. Thank you for considering a one-time or monthly donation this #GivingTuesday.


In gratitude for all you do to help make Seattle a city that all people can walk, bike, move, and thrive in, 


— Gordon, Clara, and Susan at Seattle Neighborhood Greenways



Truly any gift amount will help. And, thanks to a collective double-match by our Board of Directors and the Bowline Fund, your donation this year will go three times as far!

5 Key South Seattle Projects

As part of our ongoing commitment to transportation equity, Seattle Neighborhood Greenways partners with communities that are at the greatest risk from unsafe roads and air quality hazards. In these most-impacted neighborhoods our hyper-local coalitions have won dozens of improved crosswalks, miles of bike routes, and improved access to schools, jobs, and transit.

Community leaders in South Seattle are making huge strides against considerable challenges:

Three people smile in front of a festively decorated DVSS booth at a summer festival.1) Georgetown – South Park Trail

Georgetown and South Park are a short, flat, 1.8 mile distance apart. In these adjacent neighborhoods, more than 8,500 people live, 30,000 work, and countless thousands play in parks, schools, festivals, and local establishments. Each southend community hub has essential goods and services that the other doesn’t — However, the lack of safe walking or biking infrastructure keeps the two neighborhoods divided. The Georgetown – South Park trail will connect these two communities.

Last year, after an immense amount of SNG community advocacy and hard work, the City funded the planning and design processes for the trail. But the work wasn’t over! This year, that outreach and design process was underway, with a audit walks, a design workshop, and extensive community outreach at summer festivals and events. Community members are busy rallying support, collecting ideas, and ensuring that this trail will be comfortable, safe, and connect people to the places they need to go. SNG, our local chapter Duwamish Valley Safe Streets (DVSS), and community partners are continuing a massive community engagement effort into 2019. DVSS are also celebrating some fun neighborhood wins, including new lighting re-invigorating the 8th Ave “Scary Trail”, new public art and spaces for people.

Partners: South Park Merchants Association, Duwamish River Clean Up Coalition, South Park Neighborhood Association, Georgetown Merchants Association, South Park Green Space Coalition, and more.

With crash every day, Rainier Avenue South is the most dangerous street in Seattle. This year, Phase II of SDOT’s planned safety improvements were delayed – again. Meanwhile, crashes continue to severely impact our community. In August, after two young girls were hit at the intersection of Rainier Ave and S Henderson St, SNG and local chapter Rainier Valley Greenways Safe Streets hosted a rally and community walk with the mayor and SDOT staff. She responded with some initial improvements, which, along with the construction of the Rainier Valley Greenway, will make a considerable difference for people getting around, but more remains to be done. Rainier Ave S should be made safe for all people to walk, bike, drive, catch the bus, shop, and live.

Partners: Rainier Beach Action Coalition, Rainier Beach Merchants Association, Rainier Valley Chamber of Commerce, Bike Works, Rainier Valley Greenways, and more.

SNG and local chapters West Seattle Bike Connections (WSBC) and Duwamish Valley Safe Streets are working with the Duwamish Tribe to provide safe access to their Long House and Cultural Center on W Marginal Way and to and fill in key gap in the Duwamish walking and biking trail. Pictured above, two members on WSBC’s Log House to Longhouse bike tour. Check out what else WSBC has been up to this year.

And Two Big Projects Looking Forward:

Our local chapter, Beacon Hill Safe Streets, has been hard at work defensively this year, protecting planned pedestrian improvements and bike lanes on S Columbian Way, S Myrtle Street, and at 15th Ave S and Columbian, but had a major win getting signals retimed for pedestrians on MLK Way. Pictured above, a #FixGolfWay design workshop held in the intersection! Now, we are starting to build momentum for the Beacon Ave Trail.

South of Jefferson Park, Beacon Avenue’s wide median contains a trail, benches, trees, parking and other vegetation. The path runs just under 4 miles from Columbian Way south to the end of Beacon Ave. But the Beacon Ave Trail needs improvements to increase utilization as well as improve amenities and safety throughout it’s length. With modest improvements and connections, we could see new community members using the path as well as an improved experience for current users.

Partners: While many individual community members support this project, we have just begun building organizational support. Please contact info@seattlegreenways.org if you or a group you work with would like to get involved.

5) Accessible Mt Baker

Accessible Mt Baker is the keystone project to improving transportation for anyone going to or from SE Seattle . The project removes the bottleneck intersection of Rainier Ave S and MLK Jr Way S, and creates a new multimodal system of connecting streets and paths. The Accessible Mt Baker project is critical to the success of:

  • Making the Mt Baker light rail station at Franklin High School more accessible.
  • Fixing the most dangerous street in the city – Rainier Ave S.
  • The Move Seattle route 7 RapidRide+ and route 48 RapidRide+ corridors.
  • Creating a walkable town center for the North Rainier Hub Urban Village to help catalyze affordable and transit-oriented development around the light rail station.
  • Connecting SE Seattle more seamlessly to downtown for people who walk and bike.
  • Improving freight movement into and through Seattle.

This project has been in the works for years, and we’re excited to tackle it head-on in 2019!

Partners: Mt Baker Hub Business Association, Friends of Mt Baker Town Center, Mt Baker Housing, Rainier Valley Greenways, and more.

Signal changes make it safer to walk to and from Light Rail in Rainier Valley

Story by Robert Getch, Beacon Hill Safe Streets

Most of Seattle is still waiting for our signature regional transportation system, Link Light Rail, to reach their neighborhoods, but residents in Rainier Valley and Beacon Hill have been boarding Link daily since 2009.

Unique among all of the present and planned Link routes, the Link route through Rainier Valley runs at grade in the center of MLK Jr. Way, which severely increases the odds that the trains will be involved in collisions with pedestrians, cyclists, and other drivers.

Near the start of 2017, there was a collision between a train and pedestrian, killing the pedestrian. In talking to local folks, I found that many people disliked how the pedestrian crossing signals worked at each of the MLK-based stations.

I decided to start digging around.

I reached out to Sound Transit and received no traction. I went to the Beacon Hill Safe Streets (BHSS) Monthly Meeting and we decided to conduct a survey online, with paid advertising, that linked Sound Transit to dangerous conditions on the MLK corridor. We were contacted fairly quickly following this action by Sound Transit, who setup a meeting with us, the operator of Link (King County Metro) and the signal operator (SDOT).

After multiple meetings, and months of follow up, the determination was made that SDOT would at a minimum re-time the signals with a focus on pedestrians being able to access station and cross the street more frequently and with longer walk times (we also learned that SDOT hadn’t revised signal timing since Link first went online in 2009!)

It took well over a year to work out the new timing, but finally in August 2018 we’ve had success!

SDOT has re-timed the entire corridor where Link operates at grade and was able to increase the “walk” and “don’t walk” phases to make it easier to cross as well as increase opportunities for pedestrians to cross by 30-50% depending on the intersection.

This means longer walk phases coming up more frequently! While there are many other changes that are still needed this was one of the biggest issues expressed; that people simply haven’t been waiting for the walk phases because they weren’t coming up frequently enough, and were even skipped frequently.

We continue working with Sound Transit and SDOT for more changes.

We’re hoping that signage can be changed to be clear and intuitive and that the “train warning signals” can be more informative as well as something that make sense at first glance, and we hope at some point physical crossing gates can be installed to help improve safety for drivers as well who have also died in collisions with Link.

We’ve learned much about how Link is operated, how crash data is stored, and more through this process that will help us better navigate who’s responsible for what in the future as well.

It may seem like a small win, but we’re hopeful that this small win will have big impacts for residents of Beacon Hill and the Rainier Valley.

Speak up for Sidewalks and Schoolkids!

Friends,

Did you see the news this week that nearly $3 million that would have funded sidewalks and crosswalks for schools has been siphoned into the city’s “general fund”?

This funding would have helped children at 25 schools across Seattle walk to class safely by investing in projects like enhanced crosswalks, traffic calming, and walkways. Instead these projects will be delayed, adding to the 300-year backlog of sidewalk projects.

We need you to speak up now in support for funding sidewalks and crosswalks so that kids in Seattle can get safely to and from school.

Act Now! buttonkids-crossing.jpgSeattle Neighborhood Greenways has championed the Safe Routes to School program since our founding in 2011 as a core piece of our work. We’re committed to making every neighborhood a great place to walk and making sure every child can safely walk to school. But in order to do that we need our city leaders to increase funding for safe routes to schools and sidewalks.

IMG-3964

We need you to act now and send a letter to your councilmembers asking them to ensure that Safe Routes to School are adequately funded and kids can get safely to and from school.

Act Now! button

Thank you for your continued advocacy!

Be well,
Clara

Too many kids are being injured along Rainier Ave

We have had enough of kids being injured along Rainier Ave. Last week, two young girls were hit at the intersection of Rainier Ave and S Henderson St, and another was hit back in May of this year.

There is a crash every single day on Rainier Avenue South on average. The city must act now to fix Seattle’s most dangerous street.

Here is how you can help:

1) Sign the petition asking the city to improve the intersection of Rainier Ave S and S Henderson St before school starts, and to finish the Rainier Ave safety redesign project.

2) Join us for a discussion this Saturday with the mayor

Who: Mayor Jenny Durkan and people who care about fixing Rainier Ave
What: A respectful discussion of community concerns and potential solutions.
When: 1:00 to 1:45 this Saturday, August 18th
Where: Intersection of Rainier Ave S & S Henderson St

P.S. We have not yet been able to make contact with the family/families of the two girls who were hit last week. If you know them and could put us in touch so we can support them we would be very grateful.

Together we’re saving the Basic Bike Network

ApuMishraWithBabySmallMy wife and I both commute by bike downtown. If we want to create a long-term solution to traffic congestion in Seattle, encouraging pedestrian and bicycle transportation is vital, and bike infrastructure is essential.”  —Apu Mishra

 

 

We’re excited to share some big news with you: Thanks to your support, the city will build the most important east-west bike route in Seattle next year—protected bike lanes on Pike/Pine, connecting downtown to Capitol Hill.

While we saved this one piece of the Basic Bike Network, the rest is still in jeopardy. Help us keep the momentum going so that we can connect every neighborhood with safe, comfortable walking and biking routes.

(More exciting news: Your gift today will go three times as far! Find out about our incredible 2-to-1 match below.)

This kind of victory for safe streets doesn’t just happen on its own. It takes public pressure of all kinds. The city was considering delaying this critical connection, but supporters like you who advocated, donated to support our work, or cheered us on, saved it. Speaking of which, don’t miss this short video of Seattle’s first ever people-protected bike lane—one of many strategies we used to help make this win possible:

We still have a long way to go to make every neighborhood a great place to walk, bike, and live. It won’t be easy; every walking and biking improvement requires going up against powerful forces working to protect the status quo. But together, we are up to this challenge.

Apu Mishra, a Seattle Neighborhood Greenways volunteer with the Beacon Hill Safe Streets group, spoke up at City Hall for safer access to walking and biking on Seattle’s streets. 

And that’s why Seattle Neighborhood Greenways’ Board of Directors and the local Bowline Fund have boldly stepped up to match your gift 2-to-1, up to $30,000, as we head into our busiest season of city-wide organizing yet.

Please make your gift by June 30, 2018 to triple your gift and your impact. We simply can’t do this work without you.

When you contribute to Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, you’re helping accelerate safe streets solutions. Your support makes it possible for us to:

  • Organize for a bike network that connects to every neighborhood
  • Champion safe routes for kids to walk and bike to school
  • Advocate for walking and biking projects with historically underserved communities
  • Work for safe routes to walk and bike to transit hubs

 

Thank you for your support of Seattle Neighborhood Greenways. Let’s build a safe, accessible, and equitable Seattle for all.

Sincerely,

Curious about the Bowline Fund? The Bowline Fund has provided ongoing support to Seattle Neighborhood Greenways since its inception. The Bowline Fund seeks to transform Seattle’s streets, sidewalks, and parking into places centered on people rather than cars.

Pike/Pine in 2019: Big win thanks to your advocacy!

Thanks to your advocacy, the Mayor and SDOT staff have committed to building safe, protected bike lanes on Pike/Pine connecting downtown and Capitol Hill by 2019!

Please take a moment to thank the Mayor now.

A group of people holding signs in support of the Basic Bike Network gathered around a speaker at a microphone.

This is a significant win in a prolonged campaign for the Basic Bike Network. We have gathered to raise our voices time and again—via email petitions, in City Council chambers, and at powerful rallies—and we are being heard. 

That’s why we are so excited that the Mayor and SDOT have committed to building the crucial east-west connection of the Basic Bike Network in 2019, with additional upgrades to follow in the coming years. 

A comparison between current, unsafe conditions at the intersection of Pine and Boren and a happy image of a protected bike lane filled with happy bikers on a rainy day.

Please take a moment to thank the Mayor for committing to building protected bike lanes on Pike/Pine from Downtown to Capitol Hill in 2019! Let’s keep the momentum for the Basic Bike Network going!

Thank you for your continued advocacy – you are making a difference!

Meet the New Team Members!

We’ve added some new faces over the past nine months at Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, and we couldn’t be more excited. By way of introduction, we’ve asked our newest recruits a few questions about what drives their passion for safe streets / public spaces work in Seattle.

 Meet Clara Cantor, our new Community Organizer!

Joined SNG in March 2018.

How do you enjoy the public spaces in your neighborhood?  

I have a small apartment, so I spend a lot of my time in public spaces in my neighborhood! From sitting in the grass with a picnic or a beer, to walking the dog, to using the back alley or the sidewalk to do woodworking projects, I have met some of my closest friends just being outside at the right time. I even have a favorite street tree that I make a point of walking past as often as possible.

What is awesome about Seattle? 

I’m from Seattle, so I may be biased, but I’ve lived in a lot of places and traveled to many more, and Seattle is still one of my favorite places to be. I love the mountains and the water and the green, and I also love the people here. There’s no place like it. Even when I was living elsewhere, I always knew that I’d be back.

Why Seattle Neighborhood Greenways?

I love the grassroots model here at SNG – that we are of, by, and for the people. And I love the all ages and abilities focus. I am a regular bike commuter and can be a fairly vehicular cyclist sometimes, but swerving through traffic (while better than being in a car) is still not a safe or pleasant way to spend time on a bike. One of my favorite things about the Central District (where I live) is that it’s so pleasant to wander through, and I want that for everyone! Going to the library or the grocery store can be a chore, or it can be a pleasant stroll through a tree-lined street during which you stop to chat with neighbors and friends. That’s the dream!

How do you enjoy the public spaces in your neighborhood?  

I live in the Hillman City neighborhood and I can honestly say it’s my favorite place to be. The street I live on, one block off of Rainier Avenue, has a lot of neighborhood activity — folks walking their dogs, groups of friends taking a stroll, parents and kids biking together. I love the community feel and inevitable interactions that come with just stepping outside our door. I treasure our summer block party (it’s my 9 yr-old neighbor’s favorite day of the year!), visiting the businesses and nonprofits in our local commercial hub, and getting in as much time as I can walking, biking, or swimming at nearby Seward Park.

What is awesome about Seattle? 

I’ve lived most of my adult life here, and over those decades I feel like I’ve seen many “Seattles”. Far and away, what I value most about Seattle are the people I’ve met here and the community networks my husband and I share. There’s a creative, solution-oriented, can-do culture I’ve experienced in a bunch of different settings, including my former work at YES! Magazine, and even much longer ago at Earth on the Air Radio Works, that really speaks to me. The progressive politics, passion for social justice, and breathtaking natural beauty — well, these make Seattle a pretty remarkable city as well.

Why Seattle Neighborhood Greenways?

My favorite cities are some of the most walkable cities — New York, DC, Montreal. I lived in Holland for a year, right out of high school, and I’ll never forget what it felt like for daily life, school, and socializing to all take place via bike and trains. I share the dream that many people in Seattle have of this city being a wonderful place to get around by walking, biking, and transit. We have such a long way to go — but there are incremental improvements, and signs of what may be possible. I started out with Seattle Neighborhood Greenways as a volunteer in the newly-formed Rainier Valley Greenways group, back in 2013, and I’ve been knocked out ever since by the community-driven model, the steadfast commitment to a city that works for people of all ages and abilities—and the coalition’s amazing track record of success.

Thank You, Seattle Parks Foundation — It’s Time for Us to Leave the Nest! 

April 26th, 2018 marked a major milestone in the history of Seattle Neighborhood Greenways. Our success is your success. We simply couldn’t have made it here without the interest, engagement, volunteer effort, passion, partnerships, snappy tweets, and financial support that so many of you have provided from our earliest days of feisty advocacy in 2011. Gordon Padelford’s letter, below, tells the story. 

 

Dear Friends,

We want you to be the first to know: Seattle Neighborhood Greenways has secured its 501(c)(3) status and will be stepping out from under Seattle Parks Foundation’s Fiscal Sponsorship umbrella effective April 26, 2018. As you are a supporter and/or volunteer of Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, we wanted you to know how your energy and investment have paid off.

In 2011, when safe streets advocates in three neighborhoods—Northeast Seattle, Wallingford, and Beacon Hill—discovered their shared interest in making Seattle a more walkable and bikeable city, they joined forces and Seattle Neighborhood Greenways (SNG) was born.

With Seattle Parks Foundation as a fiscal sponsor, we steadily expanded our grassroots advocacy, community leadership development, and coalition-building efforts. Now it’s time to take that work to the next level.

With leadership from SNG’s founding director, Cathy Tuttle (who is still active as a board member), as well as dozens of committed volunteers and donors like you, our community-driven network achieved many early advocacy successes and built a reputation as a trusted partner with city and county agencies and a wide range of grassroots collaborators.

In those early wins, SNG provided the vision, community outreach, and momentum that led city planners 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 expanded the scope of our work to include the redevelopment of Rainier Avenue (Seattle’s most dangerous street), pocket parks in Lake City, and safe walking routes to parks, schools, and light rail stations. In 2016, SNG also led a successful campaign to reduce speed limits to safer levels citywide.

In the past year, Gordon Padelford, who has been SNG staff since 2013, took the helm as executive director, and SNG’s amazing coalition of neighborhood groups have provided leadership on dozens of projects, including:

  • Georgetown-South Park Trail, garnering $600,000 in city support,
  • Community Package Coalition, an alliance of affordable housing, green space, and mobility groups that pushed for $82 million in public benefits as part of the Washington State Convention Center expansion, and
  • Safe Routes to School safety improvements at the new Robert Eagle Staff Middle School in the Licton Springs neighborhood.

Looking forward, Seattle Neighborhood Greenways will soon launch a four-year strategic plan to chart a course for greater impact at a neighborhood and city scale. We’ve identified top priorities including a focus on providing safe infrastructure for people walking, building a bike network that connects every neighborhood, creating safe routes to schools and transit, and championing projects identified by historically underinvested-in communities.

Although the terms of our partnership with Seattle Parks Foundation have changed, the relationship will continue to thrive. Both organizations share a vision of a greener, more equitable, and more human-scaled public realm for all Seattle residents, and we look forward to significant collaboration in the years ahead.

We hope it’s clear to see: Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, and the citywide movement for greater walkability and bikeability that you helped build, is growing. From now on, you’ll be able to donate directly to Seattle Neighborhood Greenways—online at seattlegreenways.org/donate, or via mail by sending a check to Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, 220 2nd Ave S #100, Seattle, WA 98104. Can we count on your support in this critical and exciting year?

With heartfelt appreciation for all you do,
