Seattle Strides Towards Being Most Walkable City in the Country

Seattle is consistently recognized as one of the nation’s safest and most accessible cities for pedestrians, but there’s still more we can do.

That’s why we’ve released a new Pedestrian Master Plan which will include everything from sidewalk and accessibility improvements to new crosswalks and safety features. This update will help guide our city for the next 20 years.

The Plan is open to public comment until August 22, and we want to hear from you!

What features are you excited for? What do you want to see more of? What are your great ideas we didn’t think of? Email us at PMPupdate@seattle.gov and we’ll start building them.

The Pedestrian Master Plan, along with Master Plans for Freight, Biking, and Transit are part of Mayor Murray’s Move Seattle 10-year vision for an interconnected city which safely moves people and goods.

Read the Pedestrian Master Plan, then send your comments to PMPupdate@seattle.gov by August 12!
