Temporary or Permanent? The Advantages of Both Approaches

This walk will highlight the broad range of ways that Seattle has reshaped the right-of-way—from low-cost, temporary interventions to more substantial transformations requiring significant funding and public support. We’ll examine the successes and challenges of each approach, observe how each space is being used today, and consider the long-term future of this kind of intervention amidst Seattle’s rapid development. Each stop will reflect a different facet of Seattle’s culture: public appreciation of art, Northwest cuisine, a growing café culture, ties to Scandinavia, respect for alternative modes of transit, and our thriving urban gardens.
