Coming soon to a city near you: the Melrose Promenade.
The City of Seattle has identified the entire length of Melrose Avenue as the central section of a 3.5-mile long neighborhood greenway that will span from Eastlake on the north through Melrose to First Hill on the south. The Seattle Department of Transportation will be planning in 2015, and implementation is scheduled to be complete by 2017.
While this is a major victory for the Melrose Promenade, our advocacy cannot stop yet. The City will carry out significant public engagement in their planning process, and it’s our jobs to make sure that the community-generated, community-support Melrose Promenade plan remains at the forefront of their minds.
Stay tuned for when and where the City’s community outreach events will take place, and when they do, please come out and show your support for safe, healthy, and happy streets.

Our community vision for the Melrose Promenade project is continuing to take shape!
After a series of three public meetings earlier this year, our consultants from the Berger Partnership, Schemata Workshop, and Weinstein | AU have collaborated to produce a report capturing the range of ideas, dreams, and goals for Melrose Promenade.
Thank you to the many volunteers who planned and participated in the community visioning process, to our consultants, the City of Seattle, the Seattle Parks Foundation, and everyone else who contributed. This process was made possible by a $20,000 Neighborhood Matching Fund grant from the City’s Department of Neighborhoods.
Join us for our 3rd Community Visioning Meeting!
When: 6 – 8pm, Weds. March 20
Where: Broadcast Coffee (1623 Bellevue Avenue)
Our consultants from the Berger Partnership, Weinstein | AU, and Schemata Workshop have been hard at work preparing a proposal that reflects the community desires expressed during our first two visioning meetings, as well as our via our online survey, which more than 120 of you completed (Thanks everyone!)
At the meeting, we’ll be reviewing feedback generated at our previous community meetings and providing further input on the proposed concept plan that our consultants have prepared for the Melrose Promenade.
