Peter Hahn & Dongho Chang: A Legacy of Seattle Neighborhood Greenways. Invited Observer/Commenter: Anne Vernez Moudon Moderator: Cathy Tuttle
In March 2012, Seattle Neighborhood Greenways welcomed Peter Hahn (Director, Seattle Department of Transportation) and Dongho Chang (Chief City Traffic Engineer) as guest presenters at our monthly meetup.
In this community-organized discussion, Peter and Dongho illuminate a path towards Seattle's future as a world-class city for walking and bicycling, where our streets become places for living, rather than just pipes for automobiles.
Concluding remarks by Anne Vernez Moudon (University of Washington, Department of Urban Design & Planning).

ABOUT SEATTLE NEIGHBORHOOD GREENWAYS:
Formed in August 2011, Seattle Neighborhood Greenways is a rapidly growing volunteer coalition now representing 13 neighborhoods across Seattle to plan and advocate for safe and comfortable streets connecting us to the places we use, whether we walk, drive, ride a bike, push a stroller, or move by wheelchair.
We continue to meet frequently within their own neighborhoods around Seattle to plan community connections, and come together monthly as a citywide advocacy coalition. We invite all Seattle neighborhoods to join this city-wide effort.
