North Greenways Receive Major National Park Service Award

Rainier Valley Greenways November 2012 Rainier Valley Greenways community meeting November 2012 National-Park-ServiceFor the third year in a row, Seattle Neighborhood Greenways has received the prestigious National Park Service Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance award (RTCA). In 2012 and 2013, Rainier Valley Greenways had the pleasure of working with the experienced staff of the RTCA in planning and prioritizing Rainier Valley traffic safety improvements. The RTCA was instrumental in helping the growing Rainier Valley Greenways group to set goals, facilitate meetings, and create graphics. We just received word the RTCA will work in 2015 with the new North Greenways groups in Haller Lake and Northgate areas on "interconnected walking and biking routes for Safe and Green Streets for North Seattle." The RTCA will help with outreach and community engagement, and help, as they did in Rainier Valley Greenways, with a strong action plan.  Even more thrilling than the honor of this award is the opportunity to work for another year with the talented staff at the RTCA!
