SDOT seeks public feedback on Pedestrian Master Plan

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on October 28th, 2015

SDOT is looking for public input on the Pedestrian Master Plan, which seeks to funnel pedestrian improvements to areas of the city with the greatest need.

The plan prioritizes where to provide new sidewalks, curb ramps, crosswalks, and many other improvements that make it easier to walk in our neighborhoods.

“To inform the Plan update, we need your input on the types of pedestrian improvements you think are most important, and where you think we should build them. We will use your feedback to help identify the highest priority areas to focus improvements,” says SDOT organizers.

You can access the Pedestrian Master Plan Update public survey online. The survey will be open through the end of November.

    Anyone notice how the pedestrian crossing on Market at Ballard Ave takes forever now.

    I believe you are correct, coryclassic.

    I was driving west down Market Street recently, waiting for the light at 24th to change. My car was behind the crosswalk for Ballard Ave, and I was expecting that light to change at any second, but it’s clearly been changed to accommodate more cars.

    I got on to answer the survey and was disappointed there was no space to write anything. I have issues with the cops but then I also have issues with the Mayor and City Attorney’s office and what kind of directions they are giving the police in doing their jobs — such as looking the other way when transients are wreaking havoc in the parks, and disruption in general because the city won’t prosecute any of these transients unless they physically harm someone. I bet the cops are frustrated after hauling a method head in over and over (having been arrested over 50 times), only to be released by the system. Why release the guy – he doesn’t have a job but he has money and where does he get it — breaking in to cars, mugging people or breaking into homes. We occasionally hear of arrests where the person(s) are responsible for hundreds of breakins — why did it take so long so the courts to act?
