How can we improve safety on Seattle roads, and ensure everyone gets where they’re going safely? Mayor Mike McGinn and members of the Seattle City Council have convened a Road Safety Summit to get the public’s answers to this question. After a series of public forums, an action plan for safer streets will be developed and presented to the public.
There are two more public forums scheduled that you can attend:
- Tuesday, November 15th, from 6-8 pm at the Northgate Community Center (10510 5th Avenue Northeast, Seattle WA 98125) RSVP
- Monday, November 21st from 6-8 pm at the Southwest Community Center (2801 SW Thistle Street, Seattle WA 98106) RSVP
There is also one more Road Safety Summit meeting after the public forums:
- Monday, December 12th in the Bertha Knight Landes room at Seattle City Hall (600 4th Ave, Seattle WA 98104) RSVP
This final meeting will be an opportunity to hear what the next steps are for Road Safety in Seattle. If you have questions or need more information, please email email@example.com or visit the Road Safety Summit webpage.
Then, by the end of the day on November 23rd, go online to http://www.seattle.gov/roadsafety/comments.htm to provide your thoughts and ideas on how to improve safety on Seattle streets.
You will be asked to review traffic safety data and then give your answers to these three questions:
- What do you think are the highest priority safety problems to solve on Seattle roads?
- What do you think are the most important things to do to make Seattle roads safer?
- We often talk about what government can do to promote safety. What are the ways that non-governmental groups and individuals can promote safety?
The feedback you give will be submitted and used to develop top recommendations for improving road safety in Seattle. These recommendations will be presented to the public at a meeting on December 12th at City Hall from 6-8 pm. For more information on the Road Safety Summit, see www.seattle.gov/roadsafety/.
