Stay Healthy Street Stories
New in 2020
Have you been seeing Stay Healthy Streets signs around your neighborhood? These are usually as simple as a “closed street” sign, an orange cone, and a blue sign, letting folks know that the street is closed to regular through-traffic, but OPEN for people to walk, bike, roll, and skate in. With ideas and encouragement from our grassroots advocacy organization, Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, the city of Seattle began implementing Stay Healthy Streets in neighborhoods across the city, in April 2020.
