Seattle is rethinking how its streets can foster vibrancy and community-building. This tour will visit several projects in the First Hill and Capitol Hill neighborhoods that have repurposed right of way for placemaking and neighborhood identification. We’ll see how the City’s Adaptive Streets program has improved safety and provided public space in the street using only low-cost, adaptable materials. The tour will also explore the right of way activation strategies that are being employed in rapidly-growing Capitol Hill, including painted crosswalks and pilot street closures in the Pike-Pine area. We’ll also see how video camera technology helped with evaluating the pilot street closures.
