This weekend, the Ballard Greenways organization is hosting a neighborhood walk along NW 58th St., the proposed route for the greenway installation. The walk, called “Let’s Walk Ballard,” will start at West Woodland Elementary School (5601 4th Avenue NW) at 2 p.m. on Sunday, August 5 and will end at Ballard Commons Park at 3 p.m.
From Ballard Greenways:
Imagine Ballard with safe, healthy streets for people of all ages. A neighborhood where kids can walk and ride their bikes to school. A neighborhood where a senior citizen and a parent with a three year old don’t need to detour three blocks to cross the street safely. Ballard Greenways is a volunteer organization of local residents who want to make our neighborhood safer for people of all ages and abilities.
…Join us for a walk to share ideas about bringing safe, healthy streets to our home and how neighborhood greenways can help.
A recent open house about the Ballard greenway project hosted by the Seattle Department of Transportation revealed a great deal of community interest in and concerns about the project. SDOT says they are still analyzing the comments received from attendees, but no follow-up meeting has been scheduled.
