Greenwood and Phinney neighbors working together to create greenways where everyone can walk and bike safely and comfortably within our community and to adjoining neighborhoods.

About Seattle Neighborhood Greenways
We are a coalition of neighborhoods working together to create a network of safe and healthy routes for people of all ages and abilities to move about the city under their own power on routes that are prioritized for walking and biking.

  1. Let me see if I understand this correctly: you want to create a corridor where “everyone can walk and bike safely” that is exactly one block away from a thoroughfare that actually has new bike lanes? And sidewalks? Are you saying that Greenwood/Phinney is unsafe for pedestrians and bicyclists? I wouldn’t guess that based on the high numbers of both I see every day. People who live here know how to get from point A to point B without the city government telling them how to do it, surprisingly enough.

    The white arrows on the street do nothing except tell people which side of the street they should be driving on, which is actually a very helpful reminder for some people in this neighborhood.

    Do other neighborhoods get this “greenway” treatment, or just the white ones who have so much money they don’t know what to do with it? Taxpayer money should be spent on benefitting all taxpayers, so take the money that you spent on first getting people to bike IN the bike lanes and are now telling them to bike OFF the bike lanes, and return it to the city. This project is ludicrous, self-congratulating and waste of time and money.
