A Brazilian urban planning collective called Urb-i is scouring Google Street View images to find the best examples of public spaces that have been transformed from car-oriented streets to pedestrian and bike-friendly promenades. Check out the stunning before and after images in this article from Tech Insider that demonstrates the power of re-imagining public spaces, and then visit Google Street View to see if you can find some local examples, such as this one we clipped of 2nd and Bell in Belltown. We can’t wait until Melrose Promenade is counted among these inspiring examples of pedestrian-oriented public spaces.
Are you looking to get involved in the Melrose Promenade project? Would you like more information on it?
Come to our monthly Advisory Committee meeting tonight! We’ll be meeting from 6pm – 7:30pm at the Capitol Hill Branch of the Seattle Public Library (425 Harvard Ave. E.)
