Our Victories

  • We were instrumental in getting a better family friendly connection to Jefferson Park across busy S Spokane St and onto a new trail by working with the Beacon Food Forest, other communities groups, the Seattle Park Department, and the Seattle Department of Transportation.
  • We successfully advocated to incorporate our crowd sourced knowledge into Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan.
  • We scouted and identified a crowd-sourced map of important walking and biking routes (see map below), won a grant, and work with Alta Planinng to create a community circulation plan.

Jefferson Park Improvements

Below is our crowd sourced map of routes that are important to creating a network of safe streets for people who walk and bike in our neighborhood.
