DEADLINE TO RESPOND EXTENDED! RETURN COMMENTS BY FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2014.
Feet First has been hired through a grant received by Bike Works from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods to create the first Neighborhoods on Foot walking/biking map for Rainier Beach and Columbia City.
The map is intended to:
• Get more people thinking/talking about their neighborhood
• Highlight hidden treasures
• Highlight the business districts
• Highlight safe places to walk through walking routes
• Be used as an outreach tool
We are excited to be a part of the map creation. To date, we have created 10 maps throughout neighborhoods in Seattle and for the entire Kirkland community.
The geographic area of this map includes:
North: MLK/Rainier | South: Holly/Kubota Gardens
West: MLK | East: Seward/Rainier and Renton/Waters Avenue S
Concentric circles will be focused on the commercial districts of Columbia City and the community center in Rainier Beach. We have included features, public art, community interest, current walking routes, and art walk routes, etc.
Due to budget constraints, the map will be provided only in English. We have used icons on the legend to ensure people will easily understand the references. We are open to continuing this conversation to be as inclusive as possible.
Please get involved and provide your feedback!
Download the Rainier Beach MASTER 9_05_14 (1) and the Columbia City MASTER 9_05_14 (1) and provide feedback and make sure we are not missing important places –like public art, vista points, and other places you like to walk to that you want to share with the community. Indicate popular places to walk to be included too. Your comments must be received by 10/10/14.
Your comments, ideas, and changes will help to make the Rainier Beach and Columbia City Neighborhoods on Foot walking map an important resource for the community.
The final changes to the map will take place in October. We will go to print the end of October and maps will distributed at libraries, community centers, the food bank, and senior centers. If you have ideas where the Neighborhood on Foot Walking Maps should be distributed, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 206.652.2310 ext. 5 to share your ideas.
