The City of Seattle released a draft of their new bicycle master plan last month. The draft plan includes information on the state of cycling in Seattle, complete streets policies, an overview of the planning process, and much more. Many businesses and residents in the Roosevelt Neighborhood are considering how elements of the plan may impact our area, especially the proposed cycle track on 65th Street.

Sara Zora, Seattle Department of Transportation, encourages people to read pages 57-61 about their multimodal corridor decision-making process. The guidelines state that if a proposed cycle track is not suitable for arterial development (after further technical analysis, feasibility, and public engagement), a parallel street (most likely a neighborhood greenway) would be identified and implemented.
