The concept for a pedestrian street program started from community interest in testing a pedestrian street closure in Pike-Pine. After two years of testing, observations, surveying, and hearing community feedback, we’re expanding the program to run more consistently this summer. We compiled all of your feedback into the Pike People Street 2016 Report + 2017 Work Plan and came up with the following Program Goals:

1. Provide a pedestrian environment in Pike/Pine that is comfortable, safe, accessible, and responsive to the needs of the local community

2. Enliven the streets and increase public space vibrancy through community and business-led activities

3. Create a balance of pedestrian mobility, vehicle access, and streetscape activities

The street is for everyone. GET INVOLVED! If you’re a business owner or community member who’d like to have an outdoor cafe, performance, activity, art display, or have other ideas for the space, please contact seth.geiser@seattle.gov or 206-775-4457.

See you out for Pike People Street!
