Safe Streets in Lake Forest Park

Friday, April 21, 2017

The City of Lake Forest Park is leading an effort called “Safe Streets,” to make streets safer and improve connections to transit and amenities like the Burke-Gilman Trail, Interurban Trail, parks, and schools.

The City held an open house on Tuesday, March 21, 2017, to hear community members’ ideas. 

Approximately 70 people participated in the lively event, which provided the opportunity for participants to help refine and prioritize the draft list of transportation improvement projects, such as:
  • Trail connections 
  • New sidewalks and bike lanes 
  • Intersection enhancements 
  • Traffic calming measures 
  • Identifying other “hot spots” 

The Police Department hosted a similar event with Block Watch captains on March 27, 2017.

Fehr and Peers, the consulting firm leading this effort, will be evaluating the results of the public workshop over the next month and will present recommendations to the City Council in the next few weeks.

Check out the project website for more information presented at the open house.
