We’ve recently talked up the importance of getting it right for bikes in Northgate with a connected, accessible bicycle network that syncs up well with the planned light rail station. Getting the station and station area design right are fantastic ways to invite more and safer bicycling and to create a vibrant and livable neighborhood. While the station itself opens in 2020, the conversation is about to leave the station. And we’ve got a few good reasons why you don’t want to miss this train.
Any good transportation leaves at frequent and regular intervals, and the very next week you’ll want to join the second mayor and council-convened Road Safety Summit on Tuesday, Nov. 15 from 6 – 8 p.m. at the Northgate Community Center. Bring your voice and ideas to the table about how we can squarely address how all of us get around more safely—by bike, by bus, by foot and by car. (Can’t make this? There are two other city-sponsored public meetings, one lunch-hour meeting hosted by Commute Seattle, and an evening meeting at Bike Works, too!)
Summit task force members and our city leaders will bring your ideas forward in crafting an action plan for safer streets. Let’s continue the community conversation with some clear actions for all of us at the end of these summits.
And whether you’re from Northgate or from South Park, this shared vision is something that should get us all to the table.
