Green Street Locations
There are 21 adopted Green Streets in Downtown Seattle (refer to Figure CM: Green Street Locations). With the exceptions of Harbor Steps (University St. between 1st Ave. and Western Avenue), a portion of Bay St between Western Ave and Elliot Ave, and portions of Occidental Ave S (Occidental Square Park), all of the Green Streets allow motorized vehicular traffic.
There are 15 adopted Neighborhood Green Streets (refer to Figure CN: Neighborhood Green Street Locations in North Seattle and Figure CO: Neighborhood Green Street Locations in South Seattle). Another 41 Neighborhood Green Streets have been recommended in neighborhood plans in various neighborhoods, but have not yet been formally adopted and are indicated as either “neighborhood plan recommended” or “tentative” in the figures.
- Neighborhood plan recommended: defined in one of Seattle’s 37 adopted neighborhood plans as a Green Street improvement.
- Tentative: described in an adopted neighborhood plan as a street that should have some kind of pedestrian or open space improvement, but were not formally called Green Streets.
