This past Saturday morning, The Urbanist held a walking tour focusing on the central topics around transportation and the public realm involved in the One Center City mobility plan. In addition to interested members of the public, we were lucky to have a number of advocacy groups that are involved in One Center City, including Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, Seattle Bike Blog, Seattle Subway, the First Hill Improvement Association.
Additionally, all four government agencies involved in One Center City, the Seattle Department of Transportation, Sound Transit, King County Metro, and the Office of Planning and Community Development at the City of Seattle, and the Downtown Seattle Association, sent representatives to be on hand and contribute to the conversations. The result was a set of intense conversations that delved into the nitty gritty of what the challenges are that Downtown Seattle is facing in the next few years in particular.
Mafara Hobson of the Seattle Department of Transportation broadcast many of the conversations on their Twitter account, expanding the audience for our walking tour considerably and allowing you to check it out if you weren’t able to join us on Saturday.
