Open houses galore

No, not the holiday kind where you drink eggnog and sport a Santa sweater, but the bicycle, transit and roadway kinds.

Broadway Streetcar Extension Community Open House

Thursday, Dec. 13 from 4 to 6 p.m. at Silver Cloud Hotel at 110 Broadway.

The City of Seattle has secured funding to plan and design the First Hill Streetcar Line’s Broadway Extension. This project would extend the line into Broadway’s retail core.

The Open House will give you an opportunity to view preliminary concepts of the extended route, meet the project’s designers and planners, and provide comments.


Open House for Burke-Gilman Connection to Sand Point Way

Saturday, Dec. 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Gould Hall at UW

Please join us for an open house to give your ideas for a trail connection Children’s is building at the Hartmann building (corner of Sand Point Way NE and 40th Ave. NE). This new trail connection is targeted for completion in late 2013.

People of all ages are invited to participate in the open house. Activities just for kids will be provided, including:

  • Free bike helmets with complimentary fitting
  • Bicycle safety and fun workshop
  • Free kids bike safety inspections


(If you go to one of these open houses on your bike in a Santa sweater, we want pictures.)
