Making our neighborhood safer for walkers, bicyclists and drivers

Our neighborhood was awarded a Small Sparks grant from the City of Seattle to work with a professional planner in 2020 to develop a traffic calming solution for Woodland Park Avenue between Bridge Way and N. 46th Street. Attend a series of 3 community meetings between March and May to share your thoughts about safety on our street and weigh in on possible solutions.  

We plan to have a recommendation finalized by midsummer. Be part of Woodland Park Avenue's future - get involved!



Neighbors just like you

We are neighbors just like you, who care about our neighborhood. We want our kids, pets, and friends to be safe here. We want the people who commute by bicycle along Woodland Park Ave., or cross the street to catch the bus, or drive here, to be safe too.

Steering Committee Members:

Mark Drake, Mary Catlin, Dan McCabe, Gretchan Thompson, Charlie Reidy,
Chanda Emery, Brenda Seith, Jenny Brailey

A little background: Last year, a group of neighbors started emailing back and forth about the rampant speeding along Woodland Park Avenue, and what we could do about it. We had lots of ideas but no real expertise.  So we asked the City for a Small Sparks grant of $5000 to hire a professional street planner and help us find a solution.

The City said yes!

We held an initial meeting in January that was open to all and widely advertised on local social media and flyers delivered to Woodland Park Avenue residences. From that meeting, a Steering Committee was formed. All are volunteers who live on or near Woodland Park Avenue. 

If you would like to commit to spending time through June working on the Steering Committee, please email us at



Dates haven't been set yet; stay tuned

February update: the Steering Committee is in the process of hiring a professional road design consultant to work with our neighborhood. We hope to have that done by late Feb/early March. Our first community meeting to gather input and ideas from neighborhood residents will likely be in late March.
