Neighborhood groups conducting audits of safe routes to new schools at North 90th Street

by | Nov 3, 2015

Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, Licton-Haller Greenways and Greenwood-Phinney Greenways are conducting audits of safe routes for children to get to the three new schools that will open in fall of 2017 on North 90th Street, one block east of Aurora.
Robert Eagle Staff Middle School, Cascadia Elementary School (Advanced Placement Program) and Licton Springs K-8 will serve about 1,700 students total, including many students from Greenwood and Phinney Ridge.
Adults and children are welcome on the audits of potential routes, which will be conducted by walking and biking. The walks will be between 1-1/2 and 2 hours long, followed by a review session. Food and refreshments will be supplied during the review session.
The audits will result in a report to the School Traffic Safety Committee, Seattle Department of Transportation, Seattle Police, and City of Seattle to encourage the implementation of needed safety improvements prior to the schools’ opening.
Audits are currently scheduled for the afternoons of Wednesday Nov. 11 (Veterans Day, a school holiday), and Saturday, Nov. 14. A third day could possibly be added, depending on interest.
For more information or to RSVP to attend an audit, please email [email protected].
