Safer Streets for Pedestrians & Bicyclists
The Safe Streets Project
The City of Lake Forest Park is hoping to make its streets safer for everyone. This includes providing safe connections to transit, the Town Center, the Burke-Gilman Trail, Interurban Trail, parks, and schools. To identify community priorities, the City is leading a public outreach process. Through this process, we hope to accomplish four goals:
The final Safe Streets report was adopted by City Council on July 27, 2017. The report and other products from this effort are available on the Project Files page. However, in November 2017, City Council approved an additional phase of this project–assessing ways to improve safe access for people walking and cycling to the Town Center and waterfront amenities. This new phase is focused on areas within a half-mile of the Town Center, or roughly a 10-minute walk. For this portion of the project, we set up an interactive web map that allowed you to directly give us your ideas. The web map was live from late December to the end of January 2018 on the Map Your Ideas page. The City and its consultant team are now working to analyze your input and create the draft plan. Check our Home and Project Files pages for updates as we move forward.
