Seattle Trails Upgrade Plan
We worked as part of a consultant team to develop and support an outreach strategy for the City of Seattle Trails Upgrade Plan. The outreach strategy included a project website, online survey and interactive map, trail signs, tabling on trails, outreach at events and meetings, and open houses. To engage a diverse cross-section of community members, we held events at neighborhood locations and translated materials into languages spoken by people living near trails. The outreach activities captured feedback and suggestions from the public that helped the City understand what currently works well with the trail system, maintenance issues that impact trail use, and how to remove barriers and encourage use of the trail system. In addition to our outreach work we also provided layout support for the final plan.
