The Seattle Department of Transportation wants to make Seattle a more walkable city, so they’re asking locals to help draft walking directions and information in various neighborhoods. SDOT says it’s part of a year-long project to encourage Seattleites and visitors to walk more, and further.
The department hopes to find 8 to 10 people to join in one of two different discussions about wayfinding in Seattle. The two-hour discussions will be held Oct. 10 at the Central Library (1000 4th Ave), either in the afternoon from 2 to 4pm, or in the evening from 5:30 to 7:30pm.
Those interested in volunteering for the focus group should email firstname.lastname@example.org by September 27, and indicate availability to participate in the afternoon or evening session. “To help us gather a representative sample of community members, please tell us something about yourself, including the neighborhood in which you live or work and the reasons why you walk,” SDOT says.
All participants who attend will also get a $60 gift card to Safeway.
