Recently we told you about a new city program that is bringing “greenways” to several neighborhoods, including Phinney Ridge and Greenwood. A greenway is a road that parallels an arterial, but is designed to be more pedestrian- and bike-friendly and less car-oriented, to help people get around their neighborhoods without fighting car traffic.
Our neighborhood greenway group has had two meetings so far, and is soliciting more input and participation. The next meeting is set for 6 p.m. on Thursday,
March 8 April 5, at the Greenwood Library, 8016 Greenwood Ave. N.
There are a number of ways to get involved:
- Join the Google group: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Join the Facebook group.
- Check out the interactive map of suggested neighborhood routes and leave a comment.
For more information about greenways in other neighborhoods as well as Portland, The Seattle Times had a lengthy article today.
