Seattle Department of Transportation representatives will be at 14th Ave’s Washington Hall next Tuesday, April 23rd, as part of a series of “café-style conversations” to collect feedback about the city’s latest short-term bike plan. From SDOT:
Join us for cafe-style conversations with transportation planners and Department of Neighborhoods staff to discuss a draft six-year plan to build facilities encouraging and accommodating more people riding a bicycle. Read our recent blog post to learn about the projects being recommended. A variety of travel options are needed as Seattle grows to benefit livability, affordability, public health, economic competitiveness, and natural environment. Bring your thoughts and questions about how bicycling can be a part of the solution.
CHS reported here on Seattle’s increasingly modest plans for new bike projects as Mayor Jenny Durkan’s City Hall has downshifted on to relative snail’s pace on new infrastructure.
You can send comments to CCBike@Seattle.gov by April 30, 2019 if you are unable to attend in person.
Thursday, meanwhile, brings a bike gathering of a different sort to Capitol Hill’s Optimism Brewing where Washington Bike Law will host a happy hour to talk “defensive bicycle riding and safer driving, what to do if you witness or are a victim of a crash, and the basics of liability and insurance.”
