This Saturday, April 28, please join your friends at Cascade Bicycle Club, Feet First, and Futurewise for a walking tour of Northgate, the biking, walking, and transit neighborhood of the future.
Fifty years ago, Northgate’s expansive parking lots and auto-oriented design was an accurate reflection of how we lived, worked, and got around. But times are changing. With light rail and other improvements coming to the area, we’re investing in transforming Northgate into a vibrant, livable community where it’s safe and easy to ride a bike, walk down the street, and take transit.
Please join us for a morning of walking and discussion:
When: Saturday, April 28 / 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Where: Thornton Creek Plaza (319 NE Thornton Place)
It’s going to take a lot of care and coordination between the agencies involved – Sound Transit, King County Metro, the City of Seattle, and the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC) – to recreate Northgate as a “transit-oriented community”. But what would it take to transform Northgate even further, into a “bike-oriented community”? Here are some ideas you could bring to the walk (scroll down for talking points).
Bring your ideas and questions, as there will be staff from Seattle Department of Planning and Development (DPD), King County Metro, Sound Transit, and PSRC on hand to address them. A short reception will follow the walk.
Hope to see you there!
